Leather 'n Lace (See Jane Wear)

It was Indian Summer in Chicago this past weekend.  Although the leaves have begun to change and fall off the trees, temperatures crept into the 80s.  I've mentally checked out of summer so when I had to pick an outfit for a night out, I drew a blank.  I had my mind set on wearing the J Crew lace skirt so I kept it simple and topped it with a plain black tee and basic brown belt.  As predicted, I love this lace skirt and know that it will be worn many times this winter.  My good friend showed up to the party with the same skirt, but in a pretty, jewel-toned green; the colors were so different that I didn't even realize we were wearing the same skirt until someone else pointed it out.

Also, I took off the socks before I left the house.  They were a little too slippery in those heels.
