Election Day 2012...

There is no bigger day in American history than the election (or re-election) of the President.

In the spirit of this wonderful reflection of our sacred democratic process...

Another "Red, White & Blue" ensemble...

I think this is my favorite of the three "Red, White & Blue" outfits that I put together back on the day of the second Presidential Debate.  I missed the final debate so the other combination should be seen on Veteran's Day, November 11th.  Cross your fingers... Hee Hee

Here was the first ensemble.

Which is your favorite?

This one is probably my favorite because of this red oxford.

I wear this shirt with numerous items in my closet.  Very versatile.

I see many bloggers doing "30x30" challenges and I always applaud them.  I would never take on such a challenge but in many respects I do it every single day.

Versatility is a must when I decide to bring something home from the store.  I am a HUGE fan of the "mix & match" flexibility an item can provide.  Many different outfits... one piece.

Although it is no secret to those that read my blog that I also adore this lightweight denim skirt from Ann Taylor LOFT.

This skirt is a recent acquisition but it is fast becoming one of my favorites.

It is just so easy to "dress up" for work or "dress down" for less formal occassions.  I actually wore it to my niece and nephew's soccer game a couple of weeks ago.  Paired it with a t-shirt... easy... "casual"... still in keeping with my personal style.

As you know, I am just not the blue jeans sort of girl.

Throw in a simple pair of white heels from Liz Claiborne and I think you have a pretty cute ensemble.

White after Labor Day... the horror!

Just kidding... Halloween was only a few days ago so it seemed like a funny comment.

Maybe not?

Seriously, just another time that The Leather Skirt ignores the "rules of fashion."

Hee Hee

Well?  Agree?

For my USA readers... Regardless of your political leanings... I hope you will vote today!  It does matter!

There are those around the world watching... those that would die for the opportunity... do not take the responsibility lightly!

I have already done my civic duty.  The line was not too bad.  Go out... vote!

  1. LOVE this outfit! The navy skirt is gorgeous :) AND you are very patriotic for the elections today :) I am wearing a red skirt, white pumps and a denim jacket with a navy and white polka dot scarf tied to it :) Happy Voting Day to you! :)

    And it IS so hard to imagine there was a time when we couldn't vote... that's why I proudly go out there and vote now!

  2. I love the positive note your ensemble gives! I love both 1st and 2nd equally<3

    Unfortunately I cannot vote because of some super weird circumstances where I have no proof of my residency as an out of state university student. I am sure I could've probably sorted this out a long time ago, but being the procrastinator that I am, I failed my duty as a citizen. I hope everyone gets the opportunity to vote and did not wait until the last minute like I regretfully did.

  3. I like this look more than the other one, and it probably is because of the lovely red oxford!


  4. Love this combo! And good luck American people!


  5. Love this look! Very patriotic of you, but done in such a classy way. Good luck with the votes :)
