four ways to wear a pleated leather midi skirt

It’s that time again… CHIC AT EVERY AGE.  This week, we bring you the PLEATED MIDI SKIRT!!

For those of you that have just tuned in, this fab collab is exactly how it sounds… a chic chick in her 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s shows you how to style a piece in their own way. I’m working with some of my FAVORITE gals in Dallas!!

I was excited and nervous when Cathy picked this faux leather pleated midi skirt to style! It was such a cool piece, but what would I wear it with?! My week was really crazy leading up to our photo shoot so I pulled three different looks. I didn’t have a chance to try on things before our meeting and decided on this cold shoulder striped top and choker at the last minute. It’s a super cute find from Macy’s Backstage, as previously mentioned on Instagram.

My other options were a Rolling Stones graphic tee and rhinestone statement necklace or a bodysuit and leather moto jacket. I liked the way it turned out especially for a spontaneous “unseen” outfit.

THE STYLE Rx: A pleated leather midi skirt is such a cute and versatile wardrobe piece. As you can see above, it is an elegant look on everyone and suits our different body types!

Cathy is darling in a bee tee (that benefits the bees!) and leopard cardigan! I LOVE Heather’s velvet bodysuit and need to get my hands on that STAT!! And I love the unexpected pairing that Brooke did with a plaid button up tied at the waist – so casual chic!

ADDENDUM: I forgot to mention that the skirt runs big. I ordered a size small and it needed two inches altered to hit my natural waistline!!!

P.S. Hope everyone’s week is going well! My sweet kitty cat of seventeen years is not doing well, so my heart is breaking into little pieces right now. I know that’s a part of life, but it makes me so sad. :( My other sweet cat passed two years ago when she hit the seventeen-year mark too.

P.P.S. Shopbop is having an amazing SALE right now. You can save up to 30% using code MAINEVENT16. I LOVE shopping from them because Amazon Prime members get free 3-day shipping. (It’s normally 2-day shipping but it looks like they are doing 3-days for the sale probably due to high volume.)

P.P.S.S. Join me and the gals this Sunday at Kendra Scott in Preston Plaza to help promote breast cancer awareness! She created a special pink druzy for the month of October and 20% of proceeds will be donated to Breast Cancer Research Foundation. AND my favorite part is that for each piece purchase, Kendra Scott will gift a Rose Quartz piece to a woman battling breast cancer. It’s a buy one, give one piece that I really believe in! <3

    That is a gorgeous skirt, glad you could get it altered in time, it fits you perfectly and I really like it with the stripes.

    With the stripes and CHanel bag it’s very Parisian! :)

    Sorry I’ve been so behind on my blog reading! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend :) Enjoy that event – it sounds like it will do a lot for a great cause.
