If you rewind a few years ago here on the blog, I went through a phase where I wore my midi length faux leather skirt from H&M basically whenever I got the chance. The skirt had just the right amount of volume to easily transition from the office to cocktails and I think I remember ponying up $50 for it. $50! My cost per wear was likely around less than a dollar and it was one of the few fast fashion pieces that actually survived the test of time (or in this case, at least 5 years!). So you can imagine my dismay when I realized earlier this year (likely toward the end of our winter) that the skirt had finally seen it’s last final days. The material had started to unravel so to speak and flake at any hint of a crease or movement. The day had come. I had to retire it.
This story has a happy ending though — as you can see I have a new favorite leather skirt du jour, this time from Sezane. It fits the bill for everything I had been looking for as of late: flirty length, a wrap detail and a comfortable fit, slinging somewhere between hip hugging and waist nipping. I’m pretty smitten. I’ve linked a few of my favorites down below!
