Ever find an item in your closet that you totally forgot you owned?
That is what happened with this great leopard skirt.
I was actually looking for an different skirt and came across this one just hanging there begging to be worn.
I went pretty neutral with the jewelry,
 but decided to add some pop with the belt and sandals.
Red, camel and leopard are always a good idea together.
This look could easily transition into fall with a quick change of the shoes. 
 I am envisioning a cute pair of booties.
Here is a closer look of the metallic details on my outfit. 
 The sweater has gold metallic threads running through it and the jewelry has major metallic elements. 
 I even painted my nails a metallic gold.

Are you a fan of the metallic trend that is going on right now?
What piece are you dieing for?
I would love a pair of gold metallic loafers.

I love finding forgotten pieces. It's like Christmas morning. This is really cute and definitely would look great with booties for the fall.

I love finding pieces like that! I love this look too - I'll probably be copying it soon or in the fall, which will give me more of a reason to buy new boots haha

What a fun skirt! Found treasure I would say!

You could pair a Chambray shirt with it and heels too. The Red looks great with it.

Lovely look, I can't believe you had forgotten such a great little skirt! Yes, it would look equally good with tights and boots in colder weather, wouldn't it? xxxx

Love the red accessories! I do like the metallic trend, but for me I like it best for bags and shoes.
