The Leather Mini Skirt With Suede Boots

black leather mini skirt with thigh high boots

ASOS Leather Mini Skirt With Thigh High Boots & A Floppy Hat

Even though Autumn has long gone, I felt like I wanted to do an outfit that was more Autumnal than it was Wintry. As you know from me saying (in this outfit) before, I’m a little bit fed up with the cold weather and the layers to keep warm, so again, I braved the cold for a different type of look.

I wore this ASOS Faux Leather Mini Skirt in Black with my ALLSAINTS Alpha Roll Neck Jumper in Alpaca Brown. I thought it made a good base to be chic and fashionable instead of borderline risque, especially since I wore the Aldo Asteille Faux Suede Brown Thigh High Boots (same as the leather boots from this outfit). I kept with the brown theme and layered my Topshop Tan Coat over my shoulders for extra effect, then finished it off with my Celine Nano Luggage Bag in Dune, my Maison Scotch Hat, and a Ted Baker Jewellery Ballerina Necklace.

When it comes to outfits and fashion, I’m very much into experimenting with different looks and even though I have done similar outfits to this before, with different pieces, it’s still incredibly different to my normal looks as I don’t wear skirts very often at all, especially not with thigh high boots. So this outfit here might be one of my favourites with a hat! I think it helps that I love this Allsaints jumper so much, which was unexpected. I never thought I would as it has wool in it and I get itchy skin with wool, but this one didn’t irritate at all, so I even got it in cream as well, as it’s so comfortable and warm. It does run small though, I had to size up to a medium in it, despite being a UK 6 in Allsaints.

I’ve often liked the look of leather mini skirts too, especially when worn stylishly and with an Autumnal look. They can be tricky to pull off because of the stigma leather mini skirts have, but when you wear them with coats on the shoulder and knitwear, it really takes them out of that territory. Plus, adding in a floppy hat and some neutral accessories, really tones it down even more. The necklace is super cute as well, I got it from Ted Baker Jewellery and it’s rose gold and black, with moveable arms and legs. How sweet is that?

Anyway, on a different note, I have an important post coming up after this one in a few days about my health, which I’ve been waiting to share with you for a while, so stay tuned for that. But in the meantime, please enjoy this outfit and do let me know what you think of it as I’d love your thoughts on something more experimental for me, as I’m still trying to push my boundaries this year. Comment and tell me!

    I love the colors in this combination so much! Great outfit. I love the overknees!

    My Celine is a real one, I bought it in a store but I have to say, that I donΒ΄t treat it well the last weeks. A lot of my bags were stapled on it and I donΒ΄t use a dustbag for it. Also, I take my pics with my mobile phone because my cam broke down last year. Maybe thatΒ΄s the reason why it doesnΒ΄t look authentik to you. :-*

      Thank you!

      I wasn’t trying to be offensive in anyway, I was trying to help. Those weren’t the reasons it looks fake to me. The Celine logo is wrong, the font and size of it isn’t correct, neither is the zipper puller on the front pocket, it’s the wrong shape. The size of the bag is too narrow as well compared to the authentic one, and the leather wouldn’t look like that on an authentic one even if it was squashed and mistreated. Which store did you buy it from? I’ve heard of some stores selling fake ones because of someone buying a real bag and returning a fake.

    Dear Lorna, I hope that the next post is a good one, that your health is doing better now! I really hope so! And while we wait for that, on a fashion note you look incredible, so stunning! I loved the mini skirt and the jumper, with the over the knee boots the whole outfit looks amazing! Hat and jacket, a fine complement, and I also like to experiment – and this look works! Hope you have a nice week and try to relax a little, in case your body gives you the sign to slow down a bit!

    • February 6, 2017 / 9:57 pm

      Thank you so much, Denise! Really glad you like it!

        It’s true. I saw all of your outfits from the beginning. All are original, no one dress like that, superb, fascinating, sexy, beautiful. Still, one more thing. Without you they are nothing. You give life to them. Your heart, soul, energetics, appearance. All these make you beautiful, you a star in personality (I do read sometimes more than just look at photos and see the deepness of your soul), in fashion, in talents. That’s great! Lorna, just be happy πŸ™‚ The only thing you should in this life πŸ™‚

        • February 7, 2017 / 2:10 am

          That’s very kind of you to say! I appreciate it. I listened to the song too, I know it well.

    Wow Lorna, what a beautiful outfit. I really love the boots, so sexy. The jumper with the sexy leather skirt is such a good combination. I do like the entire outfit so sexy, but I hope to see your wellies soon.

    • February 7, 2017 / 1:22 pm

    Hi Lorna you always look good in this style of dress , I have a passion for floppy hats . You remind me of BB in her hey days . may I ask what size boots/ shoes you take 39/40 ? Take care and stay well Ian

    • February 8, 2017 / 3:23 pm

      Thank you! I’m glad you like it. Yes, I’m a 39/40. It varies between the two. Well guessed!

    • February 9, 2017 / 1:58 am

      Thank you πŸ™‚

  14. February 9, 2017 / 4:33 pm

    The colors compliment each other very well and that floppy hat is superb.

    • February 9, 2017 / 5:41 pm

      Thank you so much!

    That wall could almost have been built for the sole purpose of complimenting this outfit! πŸ˜€ I wonder how long it’s been waiting for this moment? πŸ˜‰

    Anyway, as for the outfit itself I think it looks great. My favourite element to it is actually the jumper which I think is such a gorgeous shade of brown (alpaca??? Oh well… whoever thinks up the colour names has a fun job) and a beautiful shape too and well as looking luxuriously warm. πŸ™‚ The hat is just magnificent! πŸ˜€

    • February 9, 2017 / 5:42 pm

      Thank you so much, Steven πŸ™‚ I know! The names are funny, but I guess some Alpaca’s can be that brown? Really glad you like the whole outfit though πŸ™‚ I think the wall was a good one. It was actually the 3rd location we chose as the others weren’t working.

    Wow this look is very foxy Lorna! I love the way you styled the mini skirt to give it a sophisticated look, using refined colours, so the overall look is polished and grown-up. The ballerina necklace is so pretty and it’s amazing that the arms and legs are movable, just like an actual doll! I adore this outfit on you, and it’s great that you’re being extra creative with your outfit choices.

    Lots of love Saba xx
