Here's a classy, easy happy hour look that I tried out on Friday night. I got this Belstaff leather skirt at Nordstrom Rack recently. It was much too large for me, but the price was right and it passed my most important test, the "French" test. If I'm shopping for clothing, I ask myself, "would a French girl wear this?" And if the answer is yes, I'm in.
I had this skirt tailored to fit me just right and I am delighted with the way it looks now. I love the clean, high-waisted cut and the edgy side zippers. I can tell it will become a garment I reach for year after year without ever getting tired of wearing it.
For a casual after-work get-together, I paired it with a gray v-neck t-shirt and strappy red stiletto sandals. For a more intense late night look, I would have worn over-the-knee boots. It's such a versatile item! I'm looking forward to styling it lots of ways.
Hope your weekend is going well!
