I bought this vintage leather pencil skirt last weekend at Downtown Threads and have been dying to wear it ever since, (I can’t wait to wear it with tights and boots this fall too)! My love affair with this skirt may have started at first sight but trust me when I say that this is a piece of vintage that I’ll be wearing forever.

I love how the burnt orange of the heels contrasts with the olive of the skirt. I wasn’t sure how the two would work together but I’m really happy with how the outfit turned out. Early spring in Vermont means 40’s during the day with temperatures dipping into the low 20s at night so I stuck with my color scheme and kept warm with my BB Dakota coat.
I bought this coat from Urban when it was ridiculously on sale and I was a little disappointed when it first arrived because it was thinner than I expected but it’s turned into the perfect spring/fall coat. It’s warm enough to fight off the wind but thin enough that I don’t overheat. I love this coat and I’m in good company becuase Jen from Jen Loves Kev wore it here and Bonnie from Flashes of Style wore it here. These ladies both have amazing (yet different) styles and are inspirations of mine. I can’t wait to see how they wear this coat throughout the seasons!
What color schemes have you recently experimented with? What did you wear for your birthday?
