Anything, other than Black!

Blake Lively wore this outfit to Regis & Kelly, this morning. The item of clothing that I am most interested in, is her turquoise/ blue leather mini-skirt. It's very rare to see a leather skirt that is not black. It is a welcoming change. What do you think?



I then went surfing. The Internet, obviously! I have never been surfing in the sea before, something tells me, that would be a disaster! Personally, I wouldn't wear a leather mini-skirt in that turquoise/ blue colour, so I picked out a sweet Khaki faux leather number from River Island at £29.99. I also picked a grey leather skirt from Twenty8Twelve at €252. Sold on mywardobe.



So, will you be saying bye-bye to black leather skirt, anytime soon? Let me know!

I love red leather skirts. So tacky :)

Ines said...

I actually would wear blue one

Aattlee said...

I like her look- but i would call that colour more blue-y than turquoise-y. Anyhow, i will be sticking to leather jackets, not skirts. Leave that to Blake. :)

I'm not a big fan of leather mini skirts (well, mostly because I would look ridiculous in one, hahaha) but I have to admit Blake looks fantastic here. I really do love the blue mini over black. It's cuter and classier. Her shirt is also equally gorgeous. :)

Grit and Glamour said...

I'd totally wear the blue the way it is styled on Blake. But then again, girlfriend can wear ANYTHING with that body!

blake lively has certainly emerged as the next young style icon (if not already). love her style...she takes fashion risks but yet has her own sense of style. agree, the blue leather skirt is a fabulous choice and that top is beautiful

What a gorgeous look on her. Love your picks. Wish they sold pins like hers on the Internet too!!

Niki B. said...

I really like her outfit! And I love black leather skirts, but would get one in a different color for sure too.

but is it just me or does blake lively look unusually skinny in that pic?
