(Faux) Leather Pleats.

Leather (both faux and real) is a huge fall/winter trend. I found this super affordable pleated number at ASOS and started dreaming up ways to work it into the wardrobe. Bought the skirt a size up to take advantage of added length, which meant I could wear it to the office. (I love a mini as much as the next girl, but you cannot rock those in your average 9-5.)

A simple cream blouse (tucked in to give the look some shape), a spiked necklace, and classic nude pumps (also seen here and here) round things out. And for good cheerleader measure: a high ponytail.

Did you miss my guest post over at Running With Racheal? A few tips and tricks for stretching those summery pieces through the fall.

Happy almost-weekend, everyone. With low temperatures dipping consistently into the 40s and 50s here in Kansas City, my weekend plans include starting to roll my closet over from Super Summer to Yep, Finally Fall.

  1. I’m SO into leather right now! I actually had a dream last night that I found the perfect leather skirt in my old home, lol! So random, but clearly my subconscious knows that leather is IN! Your skirt is perfect – the pleats make it just girly enough but still completely edgy, which I adore. Your past few outfit posts are KILLIN it Ashley! Love it!
