Ask me maybe 2 years ago if it was okay to wear a leather skirt and I would've shook my head no. Kelsey bought this skirt from Forever 21 (which can be found here) and at first we had a really hard time putting together any outfit with it. There is definitely a boundary between looking chic and looking like a hooker (i.e all leather). I think when you are wearing either a leather skirt or leggings, a great way to contrast it is with a feminine top. As soon as I saw this top, I knew it would be perfect for the skirt Kelsey bought. It was a funny coincidence that the SAME exact outfit was styled on Forever21 (maybe they should hire me :) )
This gorgeous day at a park near our house was great for this outfit and you could dress it up with black pumps or down with black flats. (I do wish it was me wearing this outfit...) Just remember, this could be a trend and the best thing to do with this is not to spend hundreds of dollars on a leather skirt when you can get it for $12! Learning what to and not to splurge on is one of my major strengths, what kinds of things are you willing to splurge on?
