Autumn is just around the corner and to be honest I’m quite glad. I’m excited to get my hands on some of the beautiful new season pieces I’ve been taunted with for the past few months in lookbooks, but also I’ll be glad to be able to actually get dressed weather appropriately in the mornings. There’s nothing worse than seeing a bright, summery day outside, putting on a dress & little else only to find yourself freezing without a jacket come the afternoon. Bloody British weather! As you’ve probably spotted I’ve taken to wearing tights with everything to try and outsmart it. Not that it worked on this day, I left the house cursing myself for wearing tights & a leather skirt because it was so hot, then found myself shivering at the bus stop, praying for the bus to hurry up just a few hours later! Bring on Autumn.

I just couldn’t wait to wear this beautiful new skirt from Reiss though, it’s the most buttery soft piece of leather I have ever laid my hands on & it fits like a dream. The cut & length make it pretty much perfect in my eyes too, making it feel smart & even quite casual, when dressed down like this, steering it away from the overly sexy, too tight or too short trap so many of them fall into. Everyone should own at least one perfect leather skirt, and now I finally have another to replace the hole in my wardrobe the last one left in it’s wake. I know I’m going to wear this to death, just like the last one, so expect to be seeing a lot of it!

    Yum, this skirt looks perfect! I don’t have a leather skirt because I always find they’re too tight/short but this is the ideal length. I also got caught out the other day, I was melting in my A/W get up haha! <3 xo

      Yeah, I saw the most gorgeous one on ASOS a few weeks ago, ordered it & it was soo tight & short, I think you’ve gotta be under 19 or so to get away with that! :( Hah!

    Beautiful and chic! I agree, a wardrobe staple! I wish the weather was cool enough to wear my leather skirt but we are still hitting high temperatures and it will probably last another couple of months…I envy your chilly days!

    Eeeeeee, this skirt is beautiful. So, so perfect. I’m so upset my vintage one doesn’t fit me any more :'( I ordered a Topshop one off of Ebay I hope it’s alrite! If not I think I’m going to have to look into investing in one of these beauties, the fit looks just right xxx

    • Posted 26.08.2013 at 1:28 pm | Permalink

      Oh no, that’s such a shame! I hope your Topshop one is a good one though! Yeah, the fit is just perfect, it’s definitely worth investing in, it’s so well made & will last a lifetime, so definitely worth the expense I think! :)

    We’re about to go into spring in the Southern hemisphere and I’m kind of dreading it. I love A/W clothes too much! Your hair looks incredible as usual.

    It’s simple but very very stylish! I really wonder how you manage so many different styles with just a single shade <3

      Thankyou Rakhshanda, that’s such a nice compliment! ♡

    You look gorgeous Steph. Your leather skirt does look perfect, the perfect length. If I see a leather skirt in the shops I find it hard to judge what the perfect length would be, but this one is definitely it. It’s easy to see from the close-up just how soft the leather is too! I look forward to seeing it styled with more layers :) roll on Autumn, we miss you! xxx

    • Posted 26.08.2013 at 1:33 pm | Permalink

      Yeah, I agree. When this first arrived I thought it was maybe a little too long, being knee length (not a length I’m used to in skirts), but as I got the rest of my outfit on I realised it was perfect :) I think with it being leather, any shorter & it kind of leans into ‘sexy’ territory, and that’s so not me! Hah! And yes, roll on Autumn!

  15. Posted 26.08.2013 at 1:39 am | Permalink

    I’ve been searching everywhere for a good leather skirt too – this one’s pretty close, love the length particularly, i’m always worried things i see online end up too short on me! it looks just right on you x

    • Posted 26.08.2013 at 1:38 pm | Permalink

      I’m the exact same, having a long torso means almost all skirts (particularly highwaisted ones) are far too short on me, I always steer clear of anything labeled ‘mini’ for that reason! Hah!
      This one sits on the waist & is 51cm in length, if that helps :)

    Black on black – you and your outfits are so special! Love the leather skirt in this one :)

    This pencil leather skirt is ‘so you’ and the overall look is great! I’m not ready to give up summer because – even if I went on holiday – I feel I need another break…having said that, I know that in few weeks I will be longing to wear warm, soft cardigans! Actually a friend just brought me the September issue of Vogue UK and I’m sure that after that reading and the beautiful editorials’ inspirations I will be ready for the fall…Take care, Caterina

    • Posted 26.08.2013 at 1:40 pm | Permalink

      Thanks Caterina! I wonder if maybe it’s because I didn’t have a holiday this year that I’m so eager for it to be Autumn? We are looking at maybe a winter break this year instead. All the editorials & lookbooks are what have me excited for Autumn mostly, so I’m sure you will feel ready once you’ve seen all the beautiful new season collections! :)
