The Suede Skirt

Revisiting this amazing suede skirt (which is so affordable on boohoo.com) and set of pictures that never went live. Whoops!

During NYFW this skirt was my go-to but it has quickly become my favorite throughout the season. The shape and fit are so flattering on my frame, it makes me wish I bought it in more colors. It’s easy to dress down or up and create a look that will take me from 9 to 5 and beyond.

To keep it (creative) office appropriate, I decided to pair it with my black cropped sweater. The high waist on the skirt meets at the end of my sweater so as long as my chair stretches are kept to a minimum I'm in the clear.

Accessories were kept to the bare minimum: a few stackable rings and my name-plated necklace. I tend to have moments when I'm all about accessories and other times when I just couldn't be bothered. When shooting this, I obviously couldn't be bothered (read: lazy). But, if you want to accessorize it a bit more I would recommend going light with rings & bracelets and wearing a long dainty necklace for that full-on femme effect.

Sidenote, going through these pictures make me miss my gorgeous dark hair. I'm pretty content with my blonde but I've never noticed how shiny it was until now. The grass is always greener on the other side - right? And if you're wondering if this is still my go-to look at the office, the answer is yes :).
