For this week’s Two-fer Tuesday, I’m focused on another skirt: my favorite “vegan leather” blue beauty.  Of course, it’s a little tricky to make a light blue, studded leather skirt look too different – no matter what you do to it, it’s pretty noticeable.  But I do think I was able to achieve a new feel with the second outfit, and the overall impact of the two looks was very different.

In option 1, I was trying to go casual – as casual as you can be in a flouncy leather skirt.  So, I paired it with a gilded sweater/sweatshirt and some flat oxfords.  (And, of course, my favorite necklace from Rahab’s Rope.)

In option 2, I took my old lady floral Peter Pan collar blouse that I really love, added my over-the-knee boots, and took this picture at the end of the day so I would look as tired and disheveled as possible.  Every once in a while, I wear an outfit that looks much better in real life than on camera.  This is one of those times.  I promise it was cute – lots of people said so.  But despite how it photographed, I couldn’t skip posting the picture because then it would just be a one-fer Tuesday, and that is not nearly as catchy.  Focus on the earrings.
