Hey ladies and gents - hoping everyone's week is off to a good start! Since were obviously starting to shift into the spring (but not quite yet) , I wanted to share one of my favorite staple pieces I have in my closet! I am so picky when it comes to skirts because I was blessed with hips and a butt, a gracious gift from my mother :) But I'm so picky because not all skirts fit right on me. I'm not a size 2 either, so pulling anything with pleats is a no-go, and miniskirts are truly hit or miss. I try to stick with skirts that are either pencil skirts, which is usually my go to, especially pencil skirts that have stretch to them. Or, i'll go for an A line skirt. I just think us curvy girls look so much better when the very thing that makes us stand out, is highlighted or accentuated in the looks we choose. You can find an A line anywhere - just make sure the top of the skirt is more narrow than the bottom. The bottom sure flare out ( imagine the letter "A") Simple right?
I found this perfect leather skirt at Zara! I love it because 1. it's an A line skirt and 2. it buttons in the front! Leather material gives over time, and the material softens, so I don't feel constricted or stuffed in when I wear it! I usually pair any skirt that I wear with a nice blouse that can be dressed up or down with a cute pair of pumps, booties (pictured) or if you're going really casual, a pair of riding boots!
Peace and Light Babes,
