So, today’s outfit is actually repurposed from this summer look (wow, I miss being tan). I decided to recycle the basic combination – silk maxi skirt + leather – and style it for a different season, since I love this skirt and don’t find many opportunities to wear it. The color is neutral and the silk isn’t really lightweight, so it happens to work for winter/fall. In this case, I was able to swap my usual wool coat for a leather jacket – luckily, the temperature was on the warm side for January.

To further “winterize” the look, I wore these wild Sam Edelman studded booties (the maxi skirt + boot combo vaguely reminds me Stevie Nicks…you know what I mean?), and layered a slouchy oatmeal-colored sweater under my jacket. Plenty of gold accents help to dress up the neutral tones and tie the whole outfit together. I love finding unusual/non-staple items in my closet that can work across seasons – kinda feels like recycling.
