Mix and Match: Green Leather Skirt

Yep, you read that right. It's a green (faux) leather skirt, and I don't hate it. In fact, I love it so much I ordered it today.

I always know that a clothing item really tugs at my heartstrings when I can't stop thinking of new ways I'd incorporate it into my existing wardrobe (same thing happened a few months ago with a dress that inspired this post, and I still wear that dress way more than I probably should!). When I found myself doing just that with this pleather skirt, I decided to pull the trigger on it and provide you all with proof that brightly colored leather does not always have to be hideous.

See? Keep scrolling for more outfit inspiration :)

Green Leather Skirt 4 Ways

The Breakdown:

Green Leather Runs Some Errands:

Running Errands: Green Leather Skirt

Confession: I own this shirt, and plan to wear it with my skirt ASAP. Mostly because it's insanely comfortable, but also because I have lots of home state pride.

Confession #2: I think that Chucks make any old outfit 10x cuter.

Confession #3: I want to bring backpacks back as a socially acceptable form of carrying your junk.

Confession #4: I put these bracelets on my Etsy wishlist...

Green Leather Goes a'Brunching:

Brunch date with your besties

Ok I personally never really get dressed up for brunch with friends, mostly because I only ever go to brunch with friends when we are all too hungover to make food ourselves. But if I ever become a less trashy version of myself, this is what I'll want to wear. I'm in love with those bow wedges!

Green Leather Goes to Class:

Heading to class: green leather skirt

Ok another confession: In college/grad school, I was 100% that bipolar student who would show up really cute one day and all grubby and nasty the next day. If I ever become a student again, this is how I'll wear this skirt on a good day :)

Green Leather Doing Whatever the Preppy Kids Do These Days:
Doing what prepsters do: Green leather

I am not, nor have I ever been, a preppy person. And yes, I realize it's incredibly cliche and stereotypic to include 3 Kate Spade items in a 'preppy' outfit. But look how 'country club' green leather can be!

EDIT 2-27-13: My skirt arrived and I loooooove it. I actually wore it out to the bars/dancing with friends the day after I got it. I have a 27-inch waist and the size medium fit well, FYI. And I ended up wearing a very similar outfit to the one with the striped shirt! So cute :)

For a few other cute ways to style this skirt, see this post by Bethany of B Soup!

Looooove the heels! Those poms are so cute :)

Green plays nicely with grey!

So have I convinced you that green leather can actually become a closet staple??!
