Two-fer Tuesdays: Pretty Pleather

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.

80 Days of Shoes: I Don’t Wanna Grow Up

Y’all I’ve been super slacking lately.  I’m sorry.  I have been busy, but I think I’ve also just been a little uninspired.  That ends today.  (Mostly, because I’m really, REALLY excited to show you my Halloween costume, and I want to tease it before I do.)

So, consider that your teaser – my Halloween costume is coming next week.  For some reason, the party I’m going to is this Friday instead of Halloween night, so I get to wear it and you get to see it early.  If you’re my facebook/instagram friend (if you’re not, you should be), you probably already know who it is.  But, if not…get excited, because it’s CUTE!!

Ok, so with that out of the way, here’s another cute outfit I wore lately.  Not quite as exciting as my Halloween costume will be.  But, cute nevertheless.

First the shoes.  I love how they’re conservative on top, but still a mile high.  I’ll be office appro. when necessary, but don’t make me wear ugly shoes!

Because I liked the collar so much, I took it, anyway – and I’m so glad I did!  Old lady tablecloth, maybe, but floral patterns are also really in right now, and I actually think it’s quite cute on, especially with the sleeves rolled to give it a more modern feel.

What do you think?
