Shirt: Arizona Jeans Co., thrifted;
Leather skirt: Old Navy, thrifted;
Shoes: Naturalizers.

Just a couple of quick notes since I'm balancing dinner and laundry at the moment:

- This outfit was inspired by Jentine of my edit -- I love her effortless use of different patterns and fabrics, like here and here;
- My office is casual enough to allow this kind of outfit experimentation;
- I found this leather skirt at Plato's Closet. I didn't know Old Navy made leather clothing, so hooray for that discovery. I see it becoming a closet workhorse;
- I like how the plaid shirt seems completely different with whatever it's combined with -- my last two outfits are here and here;
- I think I walked two miles total to get to this photo spot because there weren't any good parking spots nearby. I should get into the habit of wearing walking shoes instead of nice work shoes to spots like this because the rocks and tracks scuffed them up a bit;
- And finally, I may or may not be watching "Keeping up with the Kardashians" right now. I contain multitudes.

Happy Tuesday,

signature1 by you.

    I have a leather skirt that I found at a thrift shop ($10 for Laundry by Shelli Segal!), but I've been hesitant to wear it to work. But maybe one of these days, I can work up the guts to wear it for casual Friday!
