leather pleat midi skirt_07

It has been a whirl wind week full of interviews (!), pulling looks for the Cattle Baron’s Ball Style Show (I am hosting tomorrow night), birthdays and Valentine’s Day!  (Oh, and my baby who isn’t ready to start sleeping more than 3-4 stretches a night.)  All super fun and exciting things going on, but just letting you know why I was a little MIA last week. 😉

Now, more about this outfit…

I am a big believer in investing in classic pieces for your wardrobe, but some fun accessories can go a long way!  I love the way my grandmother’s leopard purse and these red pumps took this basic black skirt and white blouse to the next level.
