TGIF everyone!! when i went to DC, i tried on the retro jade no. 2 pencil skirt and said to my best friend, "when this goes on sale.." when they had the extra 30% off sale, she reminded me of this. a good friend is someone who knows what you covet and what you never did. how many of you have had a friend say "why do you want this? you've never talked about this before." or "please for the love of all that is sacred, buy this so you can stop talking about it already." my girls K and I know this well.
retro jade is difficult to capture in photos. it is a nice cool mix of mint and teal - more green than blue. the wool feels the same as last year's double serge wool skirts. sizing is the same for me. i think the faux leather sleeves on this tee offset the primness of the skirt. i've been wanting to incorporate edgier items into my wardrobe. i want a leather skirt, but i have to think about that one. i can't wear it to work, and frankly we know on weekends, leather skirts are impractical for mom-gear. i recently got a few leather (2 'faux' leather; 2 'real' leather) and look forward to working these into my wardrobe.
*what do you think of leather clothing? how would you incorporate it into your closet? would you?*
