Faux Leather for the Office

The weather has FINALLY seemed to cool down a bit!  The cooler temps have thus begun to inspire some of my daily #ootds – today’s included.  I’m a big fan of faux-leather for the fall/winter, but also for the office.  Some may disagree, but paired with some typical office staples, it can work quite well!

I got a lot of questions about this skirt, so I figured I would put together a quick post with all the details. 🙂

Everything I am wearing is more than a year old, so I had to come up with some alternatives.  I do think I was able find some very similar items though! Check out the following items and see what you think.

Pinspired and Instagrammed

Hi, friends!  Are you on Pinterest?  Are we friends yet??  If not, let’s be friends and pin together!  I not only pin all of my own outfits there, but also pin inspiration for outfits that are office-appropriate.  I also have boards for interior decoration, food, closet spaces, DIY’s and more!

Much of what I pin to my ‘Chic in Academia’ board is content from my Instagram account.  My Instagram feed includes daily outfit posts, including information about where I purchased each item.  So, that’s another great place to seek inspiration for work outfits if you want specific information on day-to-day basis and don’t the patience to wait for me to compile it all into a single post. 😀

Anyway, I’m thinking…we should be friends!!  Dontcha think??  I hope that one or both of these platforms can help provide some additional inspiration for your work/office outfit planning.  I look forward to hearing about your outfit plans and linking up on Pinterest and/or Instagram!
