This isn’t your grandma’s pleated skirt, that’s for sure! The new animal print skirts are light, flowy, shiny, and a little edgy too!  Even me, who typically goes for a more fitted skirt, was hypnotized by this flirty,  leopard print, pleated midi skirt.

There are so many great things about this skirt starting with the length. I love the new midi length. Have you tried it yet? Wearing pants can get monotonous,  but I do like some leg coverage, so this skirt is a nice change. It’s a very comfy skirt, with an elastic band at the waist and…

Booties with a silky midi skirt is a new look – one that I’m still getting used to. It’s a funkier way of dressing, but also very practical for every day. I must admit I’m still getting used to it.

I also traded in my rust belt for a black one, dropped the statement necklace, and added this sporty red Gucci bag.
