Did I mention I have a new favorite skirt that I wear whenever I can?  Oh, I didn’t?  Well let me introduce you to her.  She’s faux leather and fabulous!  I’ve dressed her up and am showing here how you can dress her down.  This is the perfect look for a brunch date and what I’m probably wearing to brunch this weekend so say hi if you see a girl wearing this exact outfit.  There are so many possibilities that I apologize in advance for the number of times you’ll see this beauty on the blog.

Mondays always seem to spring up on me way too fast.  It’s like I barely get the weekend glow when – BAM – it’s Monday again.  And just like a Monday, the cold weather is sprinting toward us here in the Northeast like an Olympian training for the 100-meter dash.  I feel the need to rock bare legs as often as possible before the chill overtakes us and forces me into my winter sleeping bag coat.

Here, I took the skirt from this post and turned it into a more casual look with a chambray shirt, belt and booties.  If you read this post, you know that I am a new fan of the bootie-with-skirt look.  I never thought I could wear it with my athletic calves.  But, with the right pair (here are some great options) it can be very flattering.  Hoping you get a few more bare leg days!
