Faux Suede Skirt & Leather Jacket in the Prettiest Fall Color Palette

My Favorite Fall Color Palette

77-and-sunny in November, huh? We’ll take it.



Yesterday was beautiful. But I imagine I’ll regret saying that in two weeks’ time (or so) when it’s snowing.

Either way, in my quest for prolonging tights season as long as possible (literally, it’s a game to me), I’ve been busting out my favorite suede skirt a lot as of late. Paired with a cropped leather jacket, it’s made for quite the perfect sartorial partner-in-crime for workdays that bleed into the early evening… And beyond. (Game 7 of the World Series is tonight, gah!)

Last week — wearing this ensemble — I met a camera crew in Chicago’s Millenium Park and did an interview with ABC news about how I use (and monetize) Instagram.

The segment will be airing very soon, and along with the video, I’ll be sharing a few of my tips and tricks on how to up your Insta’game. (I did a post on this last year, so consider it a 2.0 of sorts on “how to take better photos.”) If you have questions, leave ’em in the comments below and I’ll include them in the recap next week.

In the interim, I should note: The beige-colored hat I’ve been wearing all season is on sale (in two colors).

… My skirt just sold out, but I’ve had a lot of luck finding some super cute, similar styles on ASOS.

This gold pleated version is the most similar that I’ve found for around $50. Here’s a handful more that are worth browsing, linked below — the price is shown on hover.
