September in Dallas is always something to behold.
One day it can easily be 100 degrees (Fahrenheit) and the next it can just as easily be in the 60's.
Today's high temperature was right around 70 degrees. A chill in the air due to the off and on rain.
So how does The Leather Skirt celebrate such a welcome on rush of fall?
Why boots... and my classic black leather pencil skirt, of course.
When I sauntered out of my apartment this morning here is what I was wearing.
If you are an avid reader of my blog, you will not be surprised to learn that I am still wearing this ensemble, head to toe. This outfit will take me from the office and well into my evening dinner plans.
There is simply no better day/evening transitional piece than this awesome skirt.
Believe it or not, I did not start with my skirt when pulling together this outfit. I actually started with a pair of my beloved tall black boots.
I could have selected my beauties by Born. Imminently comfortable. Fantastic "walking boot."
But I decided that since today would be spent driving from location to location with very little walking... a "touch" of fashion would prevail.
I think the buckle is a nice touch.
How about you?
Since I would not be hibernating in the office all day, I felt like a crisp blouse would be better suited than a sweater. Black & white vertical stripes should do the trick. Sharp & comfortable.
It just so happens that I think this blouse and this skirt are a "match made in heaven," too.
Can you believe that tag? Do you even remember Casual Corner?
It used to be one of my favorite stores... until I discovered Harold's.
It seems that my liking a store is the kiss of death.
Look out Ann Taylor LOFT & Talbots. Hee Hee
Today was a bit of an interesting experience. People are funny.
While out I decided coffee would be nice so I popped into a local convenience store. Pour my cup, go up to the register and I am greeted by the cashier.
At first all is typical, "Can I help you?" Etc, Etc...
Then I notice that as she is making change she is "double taking" but not looking me in the eye. She is clearly confused as she is fixated on my skirt.
Can I let this opportunity go? Of course not.
So I say, "Yes, it is leather."
Clearly surprised, she responds, "Oh, I hadn't noticed."
Noticed what? How does anyone "not notice" something when they are clearly looking?
I reply, "The skirt. I thought I noticed you admiring my skirt but you seemed a bit confused."
Her, "Oh... oh, yes, the skirt. I guess I was wondering?"
Me, "So, do you like it?"
Her, "Oh... oh, yes, I suppose so?"
Me, "Well, thank you for the compliment."
With a perplexed look on her face she wished me a good day.
I just LOVE catching people off guard like. Don't you?
Question, why did she not seem to have any interest in my awesome boots or my blouse?
The rest of day, rather mundane. No other episodes of interest to report.
Officer Jordan out...
Have A Great Weekend!
