What I Wore Wednesday: Meet Mama and More

The sub-heading for this post should be "bronchitis is a bitch." I honestly thought I'd be feeling tons better after my anti-biotics but I'm still just feeling really run down. Luckily the fab Zaz from Mama and More has come along so I can wallow in self pity instead of blogging! She always manages to look edgy and hip while doing the most mundane mommy duties--something I've never managed myself!

When my daughter was just two years old, she had already clocked one of the classic feminine tricks - compliments.  I remember being in a restaurant with her, and she leaned over to an "older" girl next to us (about 8), to stroke her leather jacket, saying "hi, I like your jacket,", and then a few minutes later, "I like your skirt too".  Sure enough, the compliments worked, and soon enough they were fluttering eyelashes at each other.  Basically, we girls like to bond over clothes!  So when I was asked if I would like to guest post here on Transatlantic Blonde's wonderful outfit-gawping linky, What I Wore Wednesday, I jumped in with both stilettos without a moment's thought; after all, I've been linking here from my blog, Mama and More for ages now!

It's just now getting cool enough that most of us are resisting turning on the central heating or wearing full on opaques, mainly to prove a point, and also because the weather is still a bit schizophrenic - chilly mornings giving way to muggy afternoons, and then cooler evenings by the time it's time to go home.  So while I'm still showing a little skin while I can, 'tis definitely the season to break out some leather again, to add a little warmth when needed, and I love a leather skirt!

I love the idea of dressing a leather skirt up and down, for work or for an evening out, adding some sparkle or shots of bright accessories.  I'm a massive lover of wearing brights as the days get colder and nights come in earlier, and definitely think this length is age-appropriate, fun and stylish too.  And how about adding a few pops of colour too?

Great post! I LOVE the fall leather skirt trend...well leather (or faux leather) anything for that matter. It really ads a little spice to any look!

Melaina25 said...

I'm not big into the leather look. I'm struggling to get enough wear out of my leather look jacket (but please bloggers keep the inspiration pics coming!). PS. the photos aren't showing for me...?

Melaina25 said...

Where is the Scotch and Soda made?

Melaina25 said...

I hope you feel better! Something is wrong on my end because I can't see the pictures. Will have to check back later.

I love all the leather trends that are happening now. I just got a leather skirt, and I have yet to wear it (it's still too hot here), but I'm excited to start soon!
ps I can't see your pics either

I think adding leather to your wardrobe is so chic. It really can be dressed up or down and yes, it can be worn to work when word appropriately. Great post!

Unfortunately I don't have a leather skirt (yet), though I'd love to own one someday! When I do get one I want to wear it with a lace top. :) Thanks for the linkup!

Melaina25 said...

hope you got to see them, a minor technical glitch : ( Lucky you that it's still hot where you are, it is most definitely autumn, and thus leather-wearing weather here!

Melaina25 said...

The brand is from Amsterdam, but as I cut out the label (you could see it from the other side) I can't say where it was made...

Melaina25 said...

It's not for everyone, and I've fallen for it a lot more recently!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! Agree, and it's so easy to wear too!

Melaina25 said...

Love the sound of leather and lace!
