Those Roving Years Of Endless Jeers

Here are my newish eyeglasses again (technically I've had them for a couple of months now). I have gotten so used to my contacts that I forgot how inconvenient eyeglasses can be: they fog up in the cold, offer no protection from the sun, etc, etc. Still, I like wearing my glasses every now and then.

Also, I think I should hunt down more leather garments. I stumbled across this one in a local thrift shop for $5 and almost passed it up because leather isn't my typical style...I tend to feel like a poser in athletic gear and "tough girl" clothes, like leather. However, the fact it was mustard yellow softened it up enough for me. Now, I really like it and I feel rather powerful (?) in it. As if there's a certain attitude associated with a leather pencil skirt that one can acquire merely by donning the piece. Who knows? Now, I'm on the search for the perfect leather shorts. I might not feel quite ready for the look, but one only grows by trying things out.

  3. I totally agree with you on what you said about wearing leather. It's why I rarely wear my leather jacket. You look so cute though! I think the mustard color on the leather skirt makes it more wearable :)
    you pull it off so well!

  4. I have been on the fence about getting a pair of seychelles oxfords or brogues, mainly because wearing them would put me well over 6 feet- but I think that this post has convinced me I need them in my closet... they look lovely with the outfit. the skirt is fantastic

  5. I missed you wearing that yellow skirt! I think it's a fab skirt! You used to wear it for your supermarket pictures or something wasn't it? It's such a wearable hue :)

  11. i think it totally works for you. it doesnt seem uncharacteristic at all in my opinion! i really like this 'new' look you've got going on here, the glasses really change it up. fabulous, as usual my dear!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I, for one, love it! It doesn't resemble baddass on you, rather your sweetness and the colours are fantastic on you. Perfect, if you will!

    ReplyDelete
  13. That fun color makes the leather approachable! I adore the ring, too.

  15. The skirt is perfect...

    But those glasses ! They're AWESOME !

  16. I love the yellow leather skirt. I know, I feel the same way about leather...it always reminds me more of 80's MTV videos, but yours really works, especially with that plaid shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  17. that skirt is MAGIC. What a way to get ready for spring. Loving the look. Cute specs too!

  19. Fantastic mustard skirt, Rebecca! It suits your beautiful hair color.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I quite like leather - I wear a lot of dresses and I think a leather jacket edges out the look a bit, unfortunately it's been too cold to wear my one recently! and can I just randomly add that your hair has grown SO long!! I remember at the beginning of this blog when you had it bobbed and now it's almost waist-length - looks lovely :) x

    ReplyDelete
  21. beautiful skirt and amazing shoes! I always love your style. Would you like to exchange links?

  23. Great skirt! I can see you wearing this often actually.. so many possibilities! The oxfords and feather fascinator add the perfect touch of vintage.

    ReplyDelete
  24. ive always loved yellow and brown together!!! :D gorgeous as usual! :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's so funny- I found a bright orange leather pencil skirt at a vintage store a few weeks ago and I have been meaning to get around to posting about it. Yours looks great!

    I've been investing more in leather lately too. I really can't get enough of it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've never been a huge leather fan, but I LOVE this skit! Perhaps it's because the color is my favorite : )

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the glasses, and that skirt is so cool! I know what you mean about leather, sometimes I don't feel like it's "me" so I stay away from it. But that color is really nice, and it looks great on you.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The colour of that skirt is magic! I wanna put it on my toast :-)

    That ring still gets me hyper...

  30. Your glasses are cute! I agree, when I'm eating noodles my glasses always fog up, but I can't remove them because I like to see what I'm eating! Your skirt is amazing! The fact that it's a pencil skirt, leather, and mustard yellow mixes so many elements that it makes it great to wear for anyone!

  31. love the twist on the leather skirt.... made it your own :)

  33. Awesome sweet, and not to mention your two fingered ring already makes you tough in my book! I hope you find a pair of leather shorts--I love that look! (Even though I'm too chicken to try it myself.)

  34. aww i definitely love this outfit. i love how it coordinates to everything from your hair to your shoes. and that head accessory.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm glad you didn't pass up the opportunity to change it up a little.

    And when you look at it, it kind of fits in with your whole aesthetic, because of the colour and length.

    I love the way the frames accent your style and make it more Mad-Men-y in a way without making you look nerdy or geeky. Of course, though, this is the TwentyFirst Century. Nerds are IN.

    You skirt is butter. I love it.

    Glasses do stink, but I prefer glases to contacts. I have transition lenses so I don't need to worry about the sun, but yes, I hate the fog factor. :(

  41. beautiful skirt, I also found a leather skirt for the same price as yours at a thrift shop only that it is grey and I love it.
    That's my favorite yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  42. so cute in glasses, froma fellow wearer ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. You really suit glasses - wear them more often! As a full-time glasses wearer, I totally understand the inconvenience but they're worth it when they look this chic!

    I've been building up the courage to go for a leather skirt for a few months now. Never thought of a softer colour - good idea!

    ReplyDelete
  44. cute outfit, I love the color of that leather skirt so much

  45. i know what you mean about feeling odd wearing leather (i just got some leather pants.. don't know what the heck i was thinking), but i agree that the yellow color gives the leather skirt a softer look. and the fact that it's cut like a pencil skirt makes it unique. i really love how you styled it with the plaid and the feather fascinator! ~joelle

    ReplyDelete
  46. oh my, you look so pretty I can't even say... Amazing skirt!

  47. I love how this skirt is a fashion stretch for you, but it still is in line with your aesthetic. The bright butter yellow is lovely!

    wow icant believe you almost passed on this skirt for 5 dollars

    ReplyDelete
  53. i love your glasses! this will sound nuts, but i've always wanted glasses. when i was a kid, i'd intentionally try to screw up my eyes (read under covers with flashlight, etc.) in order to get glasses. to no avail. i am cursed with 20/20 vision.

  54. Really digging the yellow leather skirt. I think you've found the perfect complements to it in the plaid shirt and shoes.

  55. love that mustard yellow skirt! i have such a hard time with colours and this is just adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think you look great with or without glasses, love these new retro frames! and the composition of these photos is amazing! risky in the road though haha. I once had a photo prof who told us under no circumstances to lie down in the road for a photo, at least you didn't do that haha

    ReplyDelete
  57. Your outfits always have fantastic contrasts of colour. So inspiring

    ReplyDelete
  58. every once in a while you post a picture that makes me realize just how impossibly tiny you are. it blows my mind every time. also, i do love those glasses but can commiserate about how troublesome they can be. i love the way i look in my glasses but i hardly ever find they are worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  59. You pull it off quite well = )! I love your dreamy, feminine, elegant style. I've been reading your blog for a few months and it has definitely become my favorite!
    I like how often you do red lips. I only do it every now and then, but I want to try it more often. Also, your photo spots are always great, and you never look the least bit out of place in them. I'm excited to see your spring and summer looks.

    ReplyDelete
  60. i really like your glasses, they're endearing. you look adorable, as usual

  69. You look like you're a very cool, tres chic librarian.
    Intelligent, but super fun.

    There's something about the yellow of your skirt and the warm brown of your shoes that makes your hair look extra colourful to me, too. It's awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  70. This outfit is EASILY my favorite you've worn in awhile. I love all of your posts but this one is just PERFECT! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Wow! That might just be the skirt to change all my opinions about leather! Sooo adorable!! And such a bargain!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Glasses can be inconvenient. I haven't worn contacts in about a year, though, since the ones I need are so expensive.

    I just make sure my glasses are extra fabulous to make up for having to wear them. I have three pairs, one of which has a bunch of swarovski crystals on the temples. The sparkle helps offset the annoyance of having to wear them.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love those Seychelles heels of yours!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Oh gosh!, I love your headband is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  75. You look lovely in glasses. I wear glasses a lot too...but have never been very compatible with contacts. Probably about time I gave them another try!

    Love the whole outfit, your shoes are spotless!

    ReplyDelete
  76. your glasses are really cute! All my frames are really nerdy for some reason... :b STILL love your ring!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I think that skirt is one of my favorite things from your wardrobe. It's just the perfect color of yellow!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I'm not usually a big leather person either, but I LOVE this skirt. Of course mustard is pretty much my favorite color too. And your glasses are so cute! I've been wanting to get a pair again since I've been addicted to my contacts for years now. The biggest thing for me is that contacts enable my to wear sunglasses, which is a pretty big deal to me.

    And oh how I love your bird ring!!

  79. I'm loving this, per the usual! That skirt is truly stunning. I'm loving the color on you - fits you perfectly.

  102. that skirt rocks! I agree, there is something about leather skirts (and pants) that makes you feel like you could walk through a seedy neighborhood and be just fine! (I wouldn't recommend acting on these instincts though! ;)
