Big Plans (See Jane Wear)


H&M blazer (old but love this similar one), Club Monaco blouse, Patterson J. Kincaid skirt, Gap boots, LV neverfull
So, I bit the bullet yesterday and finally ordered some leather pants that I've been wanting for the past year or so (Theory friends and family is going on!).  I'm leathered out this year and this navy skirt is the recent addition to my arsenal.  I had a gift card to Cusp and wanted to buy something a little different--a statement piece, if you will.  However, I have a feeling this skirt is going to get a lot of use this winter; I'm already envisioning pairing it with black tights and a roaring fireplace.

Love this look! I think you look so great wearing this leather skirt for day time. I feel like whenever I try and wear something like for daywear I end up looking a little too vixen-like.

The leather pants you got are GORGEOUS!

I love the different feel that navy leather gives to this look - it's slightly softer than black and the striped blazer is so cute!

Love this look. A grown up twist on "school girl." I've been dying for a leather skirt, and since navy is my black, this one is perfect.

LOVE the navy skirt! It's different to see navy leather... usually everythings mostly black... makes the outfit feel less intense but with a great feel for fall textures!

You won't regret buying the leathers - they've gone from being my most dreaded fashion item to my most worn! xx

good on you! I have a pair of faux leather pants and i love them - waiting to afford a real pair!!

So, i was picking my son up at school today (a private school in Denmark) and one of his friends (a 7 year old) was wearing your tweed jacket - i laughed and immediately thought of you! she looked so cute - wore it with skinnies, high top sneakers and a chunky knit scarf. Since when was I looking to 7 year olds for outfit ideas?!?

xo, Anna.

I love how great the navy looks in leather! And congrats on the leather pants purchase ... I've been coveting a pair of black leather pants but still haven't gone for it. #eek
