Inspired By: Chambray And Leather

I saw a cool look while browsing through a fashion magazine (I was getting a pedicure, I’m not a big purchaser of lady mags): chambray shirt with leather skirt.  I really like it for Florida Fall/Winter. It combines two simple, classic pieces and makes me feel a little badass, although I am not. I am a cream-puff, with a steel magnolia underneath.

Here are some fabulous bloggers wearing the outfit:

Clockwise from left: Wardrobe Oxygen; Dadou Chic; Salt City Style.

I’d like to accessorize the look with black tights, maybe with a pattern:

Via Nordie‘s, on sale for $13.

And shooties/booties:

Via Nordstrom Rack, on sale for $140.

And a cool necklace or cuff:

Via Kohls, costs less than lunch!

Do you like and/or wear this combination? Are you also a not-badass like me, except on special occasions? ☺

Have a fierce day, and stay fabulous,

  1. Ha! Will be posting an essay on "The Manifestations of Badassery in the Very Mature Woman" for Visable Monday tomorrow afternoon! Must be in the fall air. Great idea, chambray and leather … more than a bit badass, indeed. But let me get this straight … you got an idea you liked from a fashion magazine, but you felt compelled to disavow paying for it? Huh.
    You are, and always will remain adorable!

  2. I can totally see myself rocking this look! No leather pencil skirt but leather skater skirt all the way! Pinning this and saving it for a time when I'm done with 50 Dresses! Thanks for the ideas. 😀

  3. You could totally rock this look, Patti, although I do see you more in ankle boots rather than sky-high heels. No chambray or leather in my wardrobe though. I'm obviously not at all bad ass! xxx

  4. This just reminds me – why do I not have a chambray shirt? I think I could live without a leather skirt, though. I'll have to show my bad-assness in other ways.

  5. I am with you on the tights Patti. I would only wear the skirt with opaque tights and some awesome booties.

  6. LOL. I though about writing that sometimes I am just a plain ass, but I am so glad you 'fessed up first xoxo.

  7. I am a badass on some days and a quirky ass on others and a non-badass on others. Sometimes I'm just a big ass. You'd look great in this look. I can see it, yup.
