Today, I’m showing you how to kick the winter blues by wearing it… the color BLUE that is. Yes, the weather is dreadful outside, but you know what I hate more than the snow, puddles, and misery of NYC Winters?? How bleak everyone dresses (I.e. all black and no personality). While you can’t control the weather, you can usher in spring by choosing bright colors for your wardrobe. As you may already know, I LOVE colorful leathers in the Spring (and I even showed you how to wear them into the SUMMER last year in this post.) Today, I’m showing you how to cheer up in a blue leather skirt. And, when it does heat up, here is another way I have worn this skirt with a bikini top!
The bright, bold color of the leather skirt stands up well to the energetic pattern of my vintage silk blouse. I tied them together by tying a patterned scarf from Forever 21 around my waist as a belt. I love the ethnic feel that the scarves fringe gives this look. It’s the combination of accessories that make this outfit special. I love the bright royal blue of the tilt hat along side the royal purple of my Dior handbag. The shoes are a favorite by Sam Edelman– I cannot express enough how surprisingly comfortable they are! Despite the height of the heel, I could run around in them all day long. The navy tassel earrings are a cheapie from Forever 21, but the REAL show stopper of the accessories is my GORGEOUS handmade bracelet by Zaafar Jewelry. My very dear friend Saadia is the designer behind Zaafar. Each piece is hand-crafted by an artisan in Pakistan. She was kind enough to allow me to shoot some of my favorite pieces last Spring. This is the first of several outfits featuring these works of art; I can’t wait to show you more of her fantastic works of art. In the meantime, you can check out her full collection HERE.
