Fall Trends // Metallic Coated Denim + Leather Moto Jacket

DSC_0323 Was it love at first sight, with this skirt from Zara... yes! Did I think it would work for me... no.  But after passing it by and walking around the entire store, I decided to scoop it up to try it on, boy was I glad I did.  With it being coated denim, it was obvi that I would be attracted to this piece, but honestly the color is what mesmerized me from the start.  Maybe it's the fact the The Little Mermaid is out of the Disney Vault at the moment and this skirt is so Ariel, one of my favorite  Disney Princesses.  Either way, when I finally got up the courage to try this skirt on, I was pleasantly surprised that a) I could wear a midi pencil skirt and b) actually like it.  So the skirt came home with me and is now one of my new favorites.

I wore this outfit last Sunday for a day of shopping, which is why I went for a downtown cool combination adding the striped graphic tee, mixed media leather moto jacket, and distressed leather booties.  Last minute, I added the second necklace, layering the two, which I feel completed the downtown look.  All day, I felt cool and most importantly confident, which is always the goal with it comes to getting dressed in the morning.

Moral of the story is... when love at first sight hits you, give it a try, even if it's a little crazy, and you might be pleasantly surprised.  You can rock anything, all it takes is the right fit and the right attitude.  If it makes you feel good, that's all that matters.
