Blue Suede Skirt

February 24, 2016

Forget blue suede shoes, give me this blue suede skirt any day. With a modern slit-front, it’s the perfect multi-season piece. The length and material make it fall appropriate or perfect for winter with tights and boots, and it easily transitions to spring. We had beautiful weather this weekend (upper 70s!), so I wore it to church with bare legs and pumps. It is from Baukjen, a line of clothing new to me. Founded in London, Baukjen’s mission is to “create clothes that inspire and empower the busy modern woman.” Now that is a statement I can get behind. I am all about clothes empowering women. This skirt is definitely one that I can see myself wearing for years to come. I love how adding this striped top (new obsession!) and my Chloe dupe bag gave it a 70s feel.

You may notice I am wearing glasses. I’m actually really blind and wear them about half the time instead of my contacts. I just usually don’t wear them on the blog because it is easier to hide behind sunglasses, grin. I recently joined Ditto’s Endless Eyewear Program for prescription glasses which is like Netflix for glasses. So awesome! If you’ve been a reader for a long time, you know I already use it for sunglasses. I’ll have a full post coming about it soon. If you’re interested, you can use the code STRAIGHTASTYLE for your first month free on either glasses or sunglasses.

    I love a woman in a midi pencil skirt and this outfit is flawless on you because it shows off your curves and your legs too. And girl you look fab in glasses. This pair is fun. I love, love the midi skirt and that striped sweater. And as you know I am a huge fan of red pumps and wear mine often. =)

    I’d have that suede skirt any day, too. I’m LOVING the modern twist with the up-front slit, and you’ve colour blocked so well in this look, Amy. Massive love! x

    That skirt is such a fabulous find! The front slit is a welcome change from the normal back or side splits, and I love how you styled it all together!!

    Such a nice look. I like the high waist skirt meets your well fitted knit brilliantly. Not to mention, the skirt is a perfect fit. If you took it to the tailors to achieve that fit, money well spent. I also appreciate that you went with a modest lady-like pump. Some may have tried to counteract the look with a super sexy open toe heel. I think you styled the look perfectly.
