Mint to Be

Today, I paired this faux leather gored skirt with a mint crochet tee and beaded chainlink necklace.

Heels:  Prabal Gurung for Target (Not available on-line; available in some stores; see here)

For work, I kept the look simple (and warm) with a classic black blazer, black mesh tights, and ankle boots.

Tote:  New York & Company (Similar )

I debated whether to wear the cropped blazer or classic suit jacket this morning.  I opted for the longer blazer for work, but after seeing the pictures, I definitely prefer the cropped jacket with this look as the proportions work better together.

I had originally conceived of this skirt and top as part of an evening look.  Floral lace-up heels from Prabal Gurung’s recent line for Target and a straw clutch help make the outfit evening-ready.  

I love the fresh and modern shape of this skirt.  Leather is somewhat unexpectedly a major trend for spring.  Expect to see many leather and faux-leather options in stores this spring.

Necklace:  Target (Sold out on-line; may be available in some stores)

I’m also super excited about all of the mint green items popping up in stores.  It’s one of my favorite colors!

Would you wear a faux leather skirt in spring? Will you be wearing mint green this spring?
