How I wear a long leather skirt over 40

Today, just a What I Wore kind of post for inspiration. I love leather. Thus, I bought this tea-length leather skirt in spring. I did not get to wear it in summer, because we had an unusual, record breaking warm summer. Thus, it was just too warm to wear a tea-length leather skirt. The skirt was intended for cooler days.

Now that fall is here, I wore this cherry red A-line leather skirt with my fall snake imprinted open-toe booties, a short-sleeve cashmere black knit sweater, and a gray cashmere cardigan. I knotted the tails of the cardi to “shorten” it visually, and to add some shape . For further interest I added my bold necklace that I made in a recreational class when I was in college. The bright cherry red added a pop of color to this rainy fall day. Its leather protected me from the slight wind on the hill.
