As the fall season kicks off, I occasionally miss the cold weather where I can wear layers and boots for the cooler climates.  On the other hand, I enjoy wearing skirts and shorts throughout the year as well.  To neutralize my absence of rocking layers during the fall season I’ve decided to play with some of the trends in addition to pairing looks with fall-forward color sets.

For this look, I’ve taken a colored leather (well, pleather or faux leather) A-line skirt and paired it with a lightweight chiffon blouse.  I love pairing leather with something soft and girly because they complement each other so well, ironically.  I’m loving the mustard shade for this season, along with hunter green and burgundy.  I added a shoulder bag to keep the focus on my outfit, but light and simple.  As an added tip, rocking a shoulder or cross-body bag like this can help accentuate the length of your legs if it falls right where the bottom of the skirt/shorts ends.

What I’m wearing:
H&M blouse
F21 skirt
Target belt
JPK handbag
Gifted necklace
Guess watch
