Chiffon in the Winter

Sheer, light, breezy, not usually adjectives to describe a piece I might reach for in the winter months. Yet, when this leopard maxi skirt arrived at my door (for the second time, I ordered the regular first but then had to exchange for the petite), I was excited to wear it. While I'm not a huge fan of the half slip, I can see how it might be nice in the warmer months - though not a plus in February. I originally added black tights so I wouldn't be freezing, but was daring and removed them for the sake of the photographs.

Being chiffon, the skirt moves beautifully, and the dark leopard easily lends itself to a winter look, and I'm versioning it with even more rich chocolate browns and creamy colored knits until the earth thaws. Then it will be all sleeveless tops and sandals for the summer.

  1. I do love a good leopard print!! I always feel like maxi skirts drown me but you pull them off so well! Still drooling over that bag

  2. This leopard print skirt is sooo cute! I love how you styled this entire outfit. So pretty!


  3. That's such a great skirt - it definitely works as winter piece when you style it the right way. And hopefully you weren't too cold with tights.

  4. This leopard skirt is so cute! I love that it can be worn now with a sweater or with a jacket and in the spring summer with a tank.


  5. What a gorgeous skirt! I love the slit and half slip! It's definitely a versatile piece and I can't wait to see how you wear it for spring and summer!

  6. That is a beautiful skirt and I can see why you had to wear it right away, even if the weather wasn't the best for it! definitely a piece you will get a lot of wear from! :)

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend! :)

  7. This skirt can totally transform from summer to winter. You'll be glad you got it!!

  8. This skirt is so cute and you are wearing it so well! I love the way you styled it! Xo

  9. Absolutely loving this skirt because it pairs well with tanks in the summer and sweaters in the winter. So versatile, and can be day or night. Adding to my cart!

  10. Loving the leopard midi...would think it will be a great transition piece! xoxo, Sarah

  11. I think the half-slip in this dress will be beautiful in the summer. I'm envisionning you wearing it this skirt with a ribbed black tank and sandals and just looking so perfectly summery. But - I also totally get why you wouldn't want to wait fives months after a skirt arrived to wear it, so the fact that you styled it for winter seems perfectly reasonable and natural to me. I probably would have gone with the black tights, but it's also much, much colder where I live and I wouldn't have had much choice ;) I'm super intrigued by your necklace - it's such a beautiful piece and I've been hunting for something similar. Where did you find it?

  12. This is such a chic winter look! Love the skrit dear.
