Maxi Skirts with Cobalt Leather Jacket And Ankle Boots

I really liked maxi dress and leather jacket outfit formula the few times I did wear it over winter. I didn't get the chance to wear it as much as I liked and thought I'd have to pack away all my leather jackets for spring, but a sudden cold snap did give me the chance to get more wear out of my cobalt leather jacket. This time around I paired it with maxi skirts instead of dresses, although I didn't keep it on for long when I wore either outfit.

TeeJeanswest Flavia foil printed polka dot tee deep iris (recent purchase)
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
ShoesAcne pistol boots in "skin"
BagRebecca Minkoff striped coated canvas mini MAC in berry stripe

Why I wore it:

I liked this outfit so much I actually wore it twice in one week! Put it together to work from home and then wore it again a couple days later to attend my local ABA meeting after viewing a house design. I really like this polka dot tee and chambray maxi skirt together, I'm sure I'll wear them together again at some stage! For an impluse buy this tee has been getting a lot of wear lately. Might just be that I'm excited to have something new in my wardrobe after seven months without shopping.

I did briefly swap out the leather jacket for a softer hoodie to babywear baby boy through the house as it was a building site, and picked flat boots instead of the heeled Pistol boots I'd worn to work from home. I babywear a lot, but babywearing with a heel I haven't attempted!

Last worn: leather jacket, chambray maxi skirt, Acne Pistol Boots, Rebecca Minkoff stripe mini MAC. First time I've worn the polka dot tee as it is a recent purchase.

Why I wore it:

Just like the second time I wore the outfit above, the cobalt leather jacket didn't stay on long this time either. It was a cold morning so I decided on a long sleeve top as well as the leather jacket. Had a few errands to run before playgroup and so by the time I'd got there I'd decided to leave the jacket in the car - it was a really warm day and so nice sitting outside as the boys played.

I've been wearing this recently thrifted maxi skirt with a lot of blue. When I saw it in store while dropping off some donations and realised it was my size, I did a quick mental run through of some outfits I could make with it - all involving neutrals. The first time I wore it I tried it with a blue tee and since I loved it so much, I figured the cobalt jacket would look great with it.

Despite being overly warm on a hot day, I really liked this outfit. I still have so many ways I want to wear this skirt, a great $3 find!

How You Can Wear It:

You can make your maxi skirts work in cooler weather by adding a leather jacket. Good for a snow and rain-less winter day, or a milder spring or autumn day. Ankle boots help keep you warm too.
If you have a colourful leather jacket you could go monochrome like in the first outfit, or a bright contrast like the the red and blue in the second outfit.

  1. The red skirt is such a beautiful piece and what a bargain! I need a new leather jacket for fall and winter but I have plenty of time to find 'the one' since it is still hot here! x


  2. I love this blue look! That moto jacket is especially cool - I don't think I've seen one that color before! Thanks for linking up!


  3. Dear Mica, as you wore the outfit 1 even twice in this short time I see you are convinced! For me it is the same: I really like this look and the 2nd look, too. I love it always seeing you wearing maxi skirts as they suit you very well.

  4. I just love that blue jacket - such a great piece!

  5. Ooh I love both of these looks. I'm partial to bright red right now, so that might be my favorite, but the blue on blue is lovely too! I need to make more use of my maxi skirts. I have a bunch, but kind of forget to wear them. This is good inspiration. I got a moto jacket that FINALLY fits just right, so I bought 2 colors last year, and 1 this year... because I love it so much. I cannot wait to try the new one out. It's navy, one of my all time fave colors to wear. :) XO - Alexandra

  6. That red skirt is such an awesome find--$3!!?? I love it with the blue too. It's nice when a piece turns out to be even more versatile than you expected, and even nicer when it was a bargain to start out with.

  7. Hi Mica! The maxi look is so chic! ..and pairing it with a moto compliment the look perfectly. The tee was a great addition to your wardrobe. Have a beautiful rest of the week!


  8. That skirt is some excellent thrifting. Three bucks for a range of outfits is a win!

  9. Those colors look so pretty together! What a great jacket!

  10. I love that red maxi skirt! The colors are all beautiful together! I haven't ever worn heels and babyworn either....
