Craving: Madewell Leather Skirt

Alexa Chung for Madewell Maud Skirt — $375

I’m obsessing over this Alexa Chung for Madewell leather skirt. I’ve been searching for leather shorts for awhile but now I’m thinking maybe I need a skirt instead — or maybe both!

The model is wearing a black suede version, but for some reason I’ve never been a huge fan of suede shoes (sorry Elvis). It just feels like too fuzzy and soft a fabric for a shoe.

Luckily for me, the shoe also comes in this fabulous, spotted pony hair version:

I’m loving a pointier toe for my shoes right now and this pair takes the cake.

Now off to find some budget-friendlier alternatives…
