The sub-heading for this post should be "bronchitis is a bitch." I honestly thought I'd be feeling tons better after my anti-biotics but I'm still just feeling really run down. Luckily the fab Zaz from Mama and More has come along so I can wallow in self pity instead of blogging! She always manages to look edgy and hip while doing the most mundane mommy duties--something I've never managed myself!
When my daughter was just two years old, she had already clocked one of the classic feminine tricks - compliments. I remember being in a restaurant with her, and she leaned over to an "older" girl next to us (about 8), to stroke her leather jacket, saying "hi, I like your jacket,", and then a few minutes later, "I like your skirt too". Sure enough, the compliments worked, and soon enough they were fluttering eyelashes at each other. Basically, we girls like to bond over clothes! So when I was asked if I would like to guest post here on Transatlantic Blonde's wonderful outfit-gawping linky, What I Wore Wednesday, I jumped in with both stilettos without a moment's thought; after all, I've been linking here from my blog, Mama and More for ages now!
It's just now getting cool enough that most of us are resisting turning on the central heating or wearing full on opaques, mainly to prove a point, and also because the weather is still a bit schizophrenic - chilly mornings giving way to muggy afternoons, and then cooler evenings by the time it's time to go home. So while I'm still showing a little skin while I can, 'tis definitely the season to break out some leather again, to add a little warmth when needed, and I love a leather skirt!

I love the idea of dressing a leather skirt up and down, for work or for an evening out, adding some sparkle or shots of bright accessories. I'm a massive lover of wearing brights as the days get colder and nights come in earlier, and definitely think this length is age-appropriate, fun and stylish too. And how about adding a few pops of colour too?
