Different variations of this look: maxi skirt, leather jacket and hat have been my “winter” staples so far this month and I think this is my favorite version. There hasn’t been snow and I’m not complaining, I can continue to weary breezy skirts and cropped moto jackets. I wore this for a day of shopping and a chorizo taco dinner with my friend Erin in the Detroit area last Friday. 
I’ve recently figured out how easy it is for stylists to use a blowdryer and a round brush to straighten in my hair in about 30 minutes and so you may see me with straight hair more often. Or not. I don’t have much patience even for that, but it’s nice to have the option, especially in the winter when the weather is dry and my hair won’t be subject to as much fuzziness.

I just realized after looking at the photos that the skirt is a bit see through. Mental note: get a slip.

Back to Midwest

DSC_9172
I’m back from Florida! I never thought I would miss 36 degree weather and cloudy skies so much, but after 90% humidity in St. Petersburg, I’m happy to not be sweaty and sticky anymore. And now I’ve returned to wearing layers once again in shades of red, mint and grey.

Amour

DSC_0043
Last week I thought to myself, how can I make leather leggings acceptable in the workplace, especially in government? The answer came with a chambray tunic and a cozy cape and a lot of meetings that took me out of the office in more creative environments. I met up with my friend and past intern, Naomi and it blew her mind that I was able to get away with it since she can’t at her PR agency. For me, it was just about downplaying the leggings almost as much as I should (I had to wear these snakeskin shoes!) Later that evening, I changed from these heels into snakeskin flats.

My Kind of Holiday

For this year’s holiday parties, velvety mini dresses and anything leather and studs will be my go-to, I suppose no different than any other day! How about you?

Plaid & Leopard

DSC_9783
A couple weeks ago I saw a photo of a girl who wore a plaid scarf and leopard print shoes on Pinterest and I’ve been determined to recreate the look in my own way. Once I found this skirt, I knew I would pair it with the polka dot sweater and the leopard print booties.
Expect some Florida updates, tweets and instagrams later this week and weekend as I’m off to Tampa for a work conference! Woo! I’m excited for some sunshine and warmer weather..and of course the conference. It’s the National Workforce Association’s national legislative conference and I’m actually excited about it.
