Let’s get back in the swing of things with Wear And Share Wednesday with Living After Midnite!  This week Jackie and I picked the mark. Get In the Swing Skirt ($40) a blush toned, faux leather skater skirt!  If that’s not 3 major spring trends rolled up all into one killer spring skirt then I don’t know what is!

The mark. Get In The Swing Skirt offers a basic with interest that you can build many looks around.  I mean just look how Jackie from Living After Midnite paired hers with a fuzzy sweater and pumps for a sweet look.  After I saw Lucy Hale sport it in the mark. magalog I knew I wanted to re-create her look with the mark. Butterfly Bliss Tank ($20), mark. Rebel Chic Moto Jacket ($65) and mark. Bold Moves Bootie ($40).  Sidenote, how did I not have a black leather jacket in my wardrobe before!?!  Regardless this mark. Rebel Chic Moto Jacket is PERFECT!  The fit is impeccable and its not cropped so the small of my back doesn’t get cold!

Pairing a faux-leather blush skirt with more faux-leather seems almost like it would be too much, but because of the neutral tone of the skirt they actually pair really nice together.  Putting a burnt-out style graphic tank underneath helps break up the faux-leather and keeps the look simple and cool.  Lucy Hale was quoted calling this outfit “fiercely feminine” which I think sums it up perfectly!
