I am easily inspired by military-style attire, more so when it comes in the form of a ruffled, leather mini dress. This piece is so easy to style and wear, I literally only needed shoes and a bag. No layering, no fancy jewelry, no extras. The ruffle detail up top and the flounce hem put an oh, so feminine touch to what some might consider a masculine material and masculine color.

Being one who always leans toward femininity in clothing choices, I wasn’t the least bit concerned when I snagged this one. In fact, I knew that it would be easy to dress up in the most fun, beautiful and romantic way.

I chose to pair this dress with a soft gray bag and soft gray OTK boots and kept the jewelry to a minimum. Adding a light color/fabric to the green leather really took some of the edge off and delivered a look that is feminine, frilly and fun.

Now, there’s a lot that can be done with this dress and one of these days, when I’m in the mood to edge it up a bit, I’ll wear it unbuttoned with layers of necklaces, add a pair of spiked booties and a silver, structured clutch. But right now, I’ll just enjoy its fun, frilly, feminine side. I hope you will too!!!

Today’s pick: green leather ruffled mini dress paired with gray suede OTK boots.
