This was one of my toughest photo shoots to date. It was so windy that capturing a pic without my hair in my face or my clothes whipping all over was a miracle. For today’s look I am pairing over the knee boots (OTK) with a leather miniskirt. This is really a very of-the-moment pairing and I love it because it is fun and flirty without showing too much skin. I chose bare legs because the weather here in SoCal will allow for it, but tights are a great option for when the weather is cold.
The key to pulling off this combo is balance. When rocking a miniskirt keep the top covered and loose…a relaxed fitting long sleeve top and chunky sweaters are my fave. I wanted to pick up the leather detail on the skirt so I paired it with a long sleeve top with leather detail and a leather sleeve jacket.
For the jewelry I kept it simple by adding pieces that are relatively dainty, but really adds to the overall look. A bar necklace, like this one from Nialaya, is perfect when you need a little something, but don’t want it to be the the focus of a look. I also love the look of layering dainty necklaces above the bar to add a little more interest. I finished the look with a very cool multi diamond pattern ring and simple gold cuff, also by Nialaya.
