Faux Leather Pleated Skirt

I admired this skirt all last school year. My friend, Courtney, and I watched it like hawks, until it suddenly disappeared from the ether! We were heartbroken. We both wished we had pounced on it, but it seemed it was too late. WRONG! Fast forward to summertime when I was in downtown Naperville, shopping for back to school clothes. I found the skirt, in store, in this luscious burgundy color.  At that time, I talked myself out of it. "Where would I wear it?" "Is it too risque?" "I don't need another skirt." 
Well, I am pleased to say I was easily able to talk myself back into it when it went on sale for 30% off! hahaha!! I am not too hard to convince to buy clothes, as you can probably tell. LOL.

The length is NOT "lady-of-the-night" style; I will be wearing this skirt to work with black tights and black closed-toe booties come winter. I got a 6 for reference; I am about 5'6, and even with heels, I didn't feel like this made me look inappropriate. 

The fall foliage in downtown Geneva has been ON POINT! I loved the backdrops for these photos. 

I chose to pair the skirt with this shirt. It comes in several different colors; they're all adorable! FYI: it runs pretty large. This is a 4, but I think the next color I'll buy will be a 2. It's now on sale for $39! The back of it and the ruffle make it a 10/10 in my eyes :)

Earrings: old Stella and Dot. Similar here in emerald or here

Update your peep-toe booties this winter for closed-toe ones here and here

Do you love fall? The colors are just stunning around downtown Geneva.
