Mini Leather Weather

A couple weeks ago if you stepped outside you may have been extremely confused. The calendar said January, but the air said September. It was glorious. It was amazing. It was short lived. However, that didn’t stop me from throwing on my new brown leather mini skirt sans tights for as long as I could!

I really don’t mind the cold. It’s terrible when I have to take my children to and from school in the freezing rain or snow, but in all honesty, it doesn’t bother me much. That being said, if I had my choice between a freezing cold winter day, or a warm fall afternoon, it’s a friggen no brainer. Gimme some fall!

I found this skirt on a drive by shopping trip through Forever21. I was on a mission to find something specific, and when that’s the case, you never find what you’re looking for, do you? Nope. So I was about to give up, defeated, when I spotted this gem. As soon as I saw it I knew this shirt would pair perfectly. I thought I’d have to wait months to wear it, surprise surprise!

I suppose I could repurpose this skirt with an oversized knit sweater to make it more weather appropriate. It would seriously be a shame to make it sit in my closet for the next two months while we wait for the temperatures to drop again! Well, until then…

I used to be one of those people that was scared to death of boyfriend jeans. The trend has been around forever, but I was terrified of even trying on a pair. Which, looking back now, is positively silly. These are one of the most flattering fits out there. Skinny jeans can be so unforgiving, wide legs look strange if not paired with the right footwear, but find a pair of boyfriend’s that fit you right and you can wear them with just about anything.

2 things I love to wear in the fall: fun hats and faux fur. They add a little touch of chic to just about any look, am I right? Unfortunately most hats never fit me, I have a ‘pea’ head as many people close to me like to call it. I can actually share hats with Charlotte. I don’t, because it’s a fact that depresses me, but I could if I really wanted/had to. This hat from Old Navy is super loose on my head, ha, but it was the perfect color and silhouette for fall so I let it wobble around anyway. Side note, I’ve had this shirt forever and this is the first time it has made it to the blog! Can’t believe that, and unfortunately it’s so old I can’t find anything quite like it anywhere to link to for you guys! womp womp.

This fall weather has not been ideal lately! Whenever I have free time it’s either raining or unusually cold for October. I haven’t even gotten to take my little ones pumpkin picking yet! What gives? It’s supposed to be nice out this weekend! Keep your fingers crossed!
