3 Ways to Wear A Green Leather Skirt

Watch out world, my 1-year old, Pigtails, is walking!  A month ago she was only taking 2 steps, then suddenly last week after much practice and quite a few falls, she was able to walk around the entire house.  Actually it's more like parading around with a big proud grin on her face!  In fact, she doesn't crawl at all.  I mean, why would she?  That's only for babies (and she definitely doesn't see herself as one!).

So I have to preface this "3 Ways To Wear It" by saying I kept the same white tank and green leather skirt on, and just changed up jackets/sweater, belts and shoes.  So it almost feels like cheating.  But I really wanted to document these looks so I would remember what to wear later.


GREEN LEATHER SKIRT - Thrifted (similar color skirt)
DENIM MOTO JACKET (similar), FOREVER 21 PEEP TOE CLOGS in black (exact
NEUTRAL CARDIGAN (similar), FOREVER 21 DAISY STUD HEELED CLOGS (exact)
WHITE CORDUROY JACKET (similar), CHARLES DAVID CLOG HEELS (similar)

Can you believe this skirt was only $6?  My mom, Fair Isle, thrifted it. She was actually going to make cuffs out of it but I saw that it was my size and I hinted to her (okay, I just flat out asked her) to let me have it.  And I love it.  It's such a great color and so much fun!

I'm really enjoying the challenge of wearing different pieces 3 ways.  Like Pigtails and her walking, I just need to practice doing it, fall a few times, and someday maybe I'll perfect it.  Then I can wear that big proud grin while parading around the house in my outfits!
