See how I styled my pleated leather skirt

Leather pleats have an edge

Usually, I am not a big fan of pleats. There are two exceptions tartan sewn down pleads, and leather pleats like in this skirt. Both type of pleats have an edge of street style which I like. Here I styled my pleat leather skirt with a winter white cashmere sweater. I dressed the sweater up with a brooch that once belonged to my late grandmother. In 2010, my father gave me this former brooch of his mother for my birthday.

I also wear a leather and the collier de chien cuff that my husband gave me for the 20th anniversary of my first PhD. I am a big fan of anything studded. I paired this look with my pony hair camouflage booties and sunglasses for an Alaska type spring look.
