Faux Leather Skirt x Two

Oh, faux leather, how I do I adore thee? Let me count the ways. You're classic, edgy, feminine, a statement piece, sexy, sassy, affordable and versatile. Should I go on?  I am pretty positive that most of you would all agree. Faux leather is one of the hottest trends this season and hands down my favorite.
Today, Lauren with Fizz and Frosting and I teamed up to show you two faux leather skirt variations. I chose to go with a fun, flirty combination while Lauren went with a sleek monochromatic look. Both styles are perfect for the upcoming holiday party season. Adding tights to my look or sparkly jewels to Lauren's would take you from the office straight to an evening celebration. Yes, I believe leather is 100% appropriate for an office environment.

MORE FAUX LEATHER SKIRT OPTIONS
Make sure you stop by Fizz and Frosting to see more of how Lauren styled her faux leather pencil skirt and see what she thinks about the trend that's taking blogosphere by storm.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We kept things pretty low key; a few volleyball games, baby shower, Rainbow Loom bracelet making, football with friends, church and more football. 

One thing that I finally tackled late Friday night (insert insomniac) was getting my Pinterest boards and pins updated and organized. I know, wild and exciting night in my house. But really, I hadn't updated hardly anything since I started pinning over two years ago. Yes, I pin stuff on the regular, but my board names where so broad that I had over 600 pins in one category. I organized things a little bit better, added a few new boards and deleted dozens and dozens of pins. Oh my stars, I was laughing out loud when I went back through some of the things that I pinned. Woah, my style has evolved and drastically changed over the last couple of years. When I scrolled through and saw some of the outfit inspirations that I "loved" back then, I immediately deleted. It was almost embarrassing.

It felt good to finally get everything in order. New goal: don't click "pin it" and forget about them for two years. I must say I did make these heaven in your mouth brownies, this DIY glitter reindeer and actually tied my scarf in today's post because of this pin. I guess I am putting my pins to better use than I thought.

P.S. God bless all the active military and veterans for being true heroes and all the sacrifices you have made for our country. Dad, I am pretty sure you or mom are reading today. I love you so much, proud of your heroism and honored to have you as my daddy. Happy Veteran's Day. I encourage to shake a stranger's hand today if you see them in uniform. Look them in the eyes and tell them THANK YOU.

Your outfit is so well put together, the scarf is such a great detail and it's tartan, another trend for this season.

So glad you linked that pin for how you tied that scarf! I was going to ask you what you did. I don't have anything in leather yet. And, since I haven't given myself permission to buy anything new for me yet, I'll just have to wait and see if the trend lasts :)

Pair your dressy leather skirts with simple casual wear. Think white t-shirts and cardigans. Anything that you would have thrown on with your favorite pair of jeans, thrown them on with your leather skirt. Casual wear is a great option to tone-down your stand-out leather skirt.
