TGIF!! I'm glad to see the back of this week. Cold, miserable and wet. Not that it's going to get any better next week though.
Moving on to my outfit:-) Let me introduce you to my favorite Leather skirt! I absolutely love this skirt. I didn't want to jump on the bandwagon and buy a leather skirt for the sake of it because everyone s wearing it or because every blogger in the universe is blogging about them. I like to find statement pieces that's quite unusual and this skirt is exactly that. So I normally don't wear my skirts this short but hey! YOLO!
This leather skirt has got a uneven hem, which is why it look rather short from the front but it's longer from the back ( don't want to walk around with my bum cheeks out now do I?? ) It is quite a comfortable length though so you don't have to risk doing a Britney Spears or Paris Hilton:)
The zip detail on the front give it a edgier, more tougher look. The leather (obviously not real) is really soft and thin and feels really nice on the skin. It was a bit cold but it was so so nice to get my legs out for a change plus leather don't do too well with tights. And I thought its time I put my all year round tan to good use as well:-)
Paired the skirt up with a more softer top. I love lace but it has to be the right design because some lace designs tend to look a bit cheap. This top is perfect because it's so versatile, as you can wear it on a night out, casual or formal and I love that about clothes because you can really get your moneys worth rather than waiting for a special occasion to wear it.
I wore the shoes because the colour blend in with my skin so it makes my outfit stand out more (also make my legs look longer?) I use my leather bag because it pretty much goes with anything and I wanted to keep the outfit monochrome but you can really go crazy with the accessories.

Happy Easter and hope your all have a lovely long weekend!
