This skirt by Alice + Olivia is a new addition to my wardrobe for spring. I think leather skirts are timeless and I have plenty of black ones I love so when I saw this one in a beautiful nude shade I thought it would get plenty of use. I used a code at Tobi to order it over a month ago. It has a great tulip shape to it and it is slightly longer than a lot of skirts I own, but I really like that about it. It is very feminine and the tan color blends with my skin color. I think Alice + Olivia makes some of the best leather skirts. My black pleated leather skirt by Alice + Olivia is already one of my favorite pieces in my closet. I cannot say I love their leather leggings, but the leather skirts are very well made compared to the leggings.
I am in spring gardening mode and getting ready to plant lot of veggies so I have had the color green on my mind quite a bit. When I saw the skirt I knew a deep tree-like green would be beautiful with it. You have seen me wearing this silk cami before and it is one of those pieces that is extremely versatile. I slipped it on over this lace cropped cami in a mintish green. I also wore my gold byzantine necklace and some nude platform pumps by Prada. These pumps are an investment piece because they are the exact shape and color I was looking for in a nude patent pump. A lot of the pumps out there are described as a nude color, but in actuality they are pink and that was not what I was looking for in my perfect leg elongating pump. I bought these at the end of last summer from Saks and they were pretty difficult to find. I treasure them because I am picky about pumps and this pair is definitely a keeper. I am beginning to think Prada and Miu Miu own the market on comfort in designer shoes as well as these do not pinch my toe box at all and my feet are not extremely narrow.
I wanted to answer a question I get asked quite often. Do I wear high heels all the time? No, I do not wear them all the time. I wear them quite often, but if my feet ever start to hurt I also carry ballet flats in my bag, purse, or car so I can change. I also carry some Converse and some Nike running shoes, as well as flip flops. Sometimes I even carry Uggs in the winter because they are warm, comfortable, and I live in a snowy state. I love high heels and designer shoes, but I also do not want any type of foot deformities. I think you can wear high heels for as many hours as you feel comfortable, but if you are ever in pain you should have some other footwear choices in your car. If you search my blog you can find me wearing ballet flats, Uggs, and Converse in various posts. If you want to see me in flip flops check out my Poodles & Pigs page in the navigation bar at the top.
