Usually when I find an outfit that works for me, I stick to it. Why fix something that’s not broken, am I right? During Fall and Winter, 90% of my outfits start with a great pair of leggings! This look is no exception but there is a twist. These leggings are full (faux) leather! Leather leggings are the perfect compromise between fashion and function. They make such a statement without being as constricting or limiting as real leather pants. If you don’t own a pair yet, you need to! This season, everyone is freaking out over these from Spanx – they’re slimming, on trend, and super comfortable.
Another thing that I cannot stop wearing lately is knit cardigans! They’ve literally become my uniform. This particular one is so cozy and cute that I find myself reaching for it daily. It runs a bit big so order one size down – I am wearing the XS! The color is rich but you don’t have to be to buy it – it’s under $50! Since I really wanted the color to stand out, I kept the rest of the look black – adding interest with different textures and accessories. These earrings, for example, really bump the entire look up a notch. I love what a statement they make without being inherently formal! So many statement earrings are too glitzy to wear during the day but these ones could easily be worn with jeans and a t-shirt on a lunch date. That versatility alone makes them worth the purchase!
