leather and plaid


top: urban outfitters (old)  similar here // skirt: h&m (recent) similar here // tights: joe fresh // necklace: zara (recent) // boots: aldo (old) // watch: michael kors // ring: h&m (old) 

I've been on the lookout for a great leather skirt but since most of them were over my price range I was ecstatic when I saw this very inexpensive version at H&M. I also loved how it flared out a bit which is a very different look for me. I'm usually not super girly so I think this has the perfect balance of being feminine yet edgy.
My boyfriend was surprised when I paired it with a plaid shirt and joked that I had embraced being in small town Alberta haha ( for the record, it has NOT happened haha). But of course I had to button it up all the way and pair it with a statement necklace to make it different.

Hope everyone has a easy going Monday!

p.s I purchased Ellie Gouldings "Halcyon" on the weekend.. I highly suggest you do the same! amazing record from start to finish!
