The skirt that make me feel a lil bit like Carrie Bradshaw. She probably wouldn't have opted for black with a casual basic grey top. The great thing about basics is that you can throw them against something that makes a statement and you won't look too over the top because you have made it more casual. I actually ended up wearing my faux leather jacket with the outfit throughout work because I was so damn cold but I think pairing a skirt like this with a leather jacket and a basic tee or crop top looks v good together. Big chunky jewelry would have been great too if you was going out - I just had work though so I didn't want to over do it. I don't even know what jewelry is lately anyway (must invest in some new bling).
