MaxMara leather skirt, City of Dolls shirt, Banana Republic Wedges

Hello friends! Hope your weeks are going smoothly. I am so excited to share with you one of my latest thrift store finds, this amazing MaxMara buttery soft leather skirt. I picked it up in Hollywood the same day I found my 3/4 length skirt from a few posts back. I was looking for a piece to infuse a little of that minimalistic Celine aesthetic into my wardrobe, and finally I found it. And it's basically brand new and was a total bargain! I think I have a new fall staple on my hands. I wanted to keep things simple with this look because this skirt just speaks all on its own. So I threw on a basic, slightly cropped top (isn't the zipper on the back cute?), my favorite ankle socks, and my Banana Republic strappy wedges. I am totally into autumn-izing my summery shoes with socks right now, so expect to see a lot more of this on the blog in the future. I am still on the search for the perfect pair of black leather lace-up wedges. They are an absolute necessity.

Looking forward to the weekend and the start of a fresh month. Aren't you?

A skirt like that is such a classic, and you've kept it fresh with the crop top- I love the asymmetrical length.

I can't believe it's October already. I'm looking 11 weeks of of solid studying in the face and coming to terms with the extent of my reading lists. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited, but just a tad terrified!

Black lace-up wedges? I got some recently from Steve Madden.

fashion westie said...

I totally adore this look!!! And the fact you went for the ladylike length in the skirt and mixed it with the asymmetric top. Really love it. Sometimes the simpler shapes and colours just get the best outcomes!!

BlueVanilla said...

Wow this is great!

Mistress said...

I LIKE HOW YOU LOOK. THE SKIRT IS GREAT!

jamie-lee said...

I love this look on you - the skirt is very celine like you say, and what I like is that it is knee-length! Most leather skirts I've seen always appear to be mini's so this is a nice change of pace.
The zipper on the back of your top is sweet too x

Merissa said...

I love the skirt! So unique - glamorous and understated at the same time with that subtle bronz-y sheet. The sandals are killer too. But I just don't like ankle socks with them! I know this is a huge fall trend, but honestly I'm not a trendy person. Ah, too bad!

Tendencia Propia said...

Wow Girl you really know how to rock this kind of shirts.

Look amazing, love your outfit!

Kisses!

As I was looking at the photos, I was thinking "Hmm.. Very Celine!" That skirt is gorgeous - I love buttery leather, and it's the perfect caramel shade too.
Great wedges with the socks -adds a slight whimsical edge.
Thanks for the commment!
