My Last Chance For Awhile...

I live in Texas. Texas is hot during the summer months, especially in August.  I like wearing leather skirts.  Not the best combination.

Fortunately, air conditioning was invented so I get to wear my skirts pretty much whenever I want... except when it is REALLY hot.  I do have to get from one air conditioned place to another.  Hee Hee

I got home last night, went thru my normal routine and selected today's attire. 

I am not wearing what I initially pulled together. 

You see, I did something that I rarely do, I watched the news. 

Turns out that our relatively comfortable summer is about to come to an abrupt halt.  The 100 degree days settle in tomorrow or the next day.  Not good.

Given this new bit of information, I returned to my closet and pulled out one of my favorites...

I figure today will be my last chance to wear it for several days.

I truly LOVE this caramel leather skirt.  It wears so well... like butter.  Beautiful color.

If you have been a faithful follower since December, you probably remember that Mom gave me this lovely skirt for Christmas... right out her closet.  Accordingly, it is a treasured member of my wardrobe.

I paired it with a crisp vertical striped blouse.  A little "menswear" inspired. 

Going for the "casual./chic" office look.  Did I pull it off?

I think the colors compliment one another wonderfully.  What do you think?

Originally I had selected some nude slides that I adore but right before I raced out the door I remembered these beauties.  They do not see the street often enough.  Such a rich color.  Love them.

So it all comes together looking like this... thoughts?

Be kind.  Hee Hee.

I actually posted this with my office computer... while at work  Not good.  I have a lunch date (settle down, its a college girlfriend) in a minute so I need to go.

Life has been crazy but school started for my niece and nephew and sis is really beginning to settle in so hopefully things will become more "consistent", if not "normal" for me again soon.  I miss blogging. 

-- The Leather Skirt --


  1. i love your tan leather skirt, great item into fall and winter:))

  2. This is the perfect classic camel color leather skirt and the blouse is a perfect example of class meets edge. Its so funny you mention living in TX and hot hot the weather is + wearing leather. One of my best friends is from TX and we visited her last summer and I wore leather shorts thinking I was being smart by wearing shorts....oooooh no, I was practically melting. lol, but yes thank goodness for the invention of air conditioner! :)


  3. The color, cut, and shape is so perfect! Lovely leather skirt. <3

  4. I have been looking for a caramel leather skirt that is affordable. What brand is this one and where can I purchase it ?

    1. Danier. My Mom gave it to me directly out of her closet. She has had it for years. Best guess... eBay?
