let's talk: leather pants

vegan-pants

Blank Label NY leggings (sold out - similar at zara) / H&M blouse (similar) / H&M sweater (similar) Sam Edelman ankle boots / Kenneth Cole flats / j crew pumps

I did it. I bought the leather pants I was eyeing but you already knew that. let's be clear though - they are neither leather nor pants. they're vegan leggings but with pant details (faux besom pockets on the back and seaming details). my struggle has been WHAT to wear with them and WHERE to wear them since I'm not a 'leggings as pants' person. I gave them a dry run last weekend (see below) for the girls' parent teacher conferences with my black silk top from j crew with black patent flats and it worked. and they're super comfortable. (you should know that I have a long history of wearing quasi-questionable ensembles to the kids' teacher conferences and curriculum nights. one year, Bob and the kids told me I looked like velma from scooby doo and I wore it anyway. it's so much fun!)

so - I stopped by h&m the other day and picked up a black chiffon blouse with an interesting tiny star pattern and a great notched V neckline. it comes in ivory and solid black, too which I intend to go back and grab. I found a fabulous, soft, oversized cable knit sweater there, too but of course none of the things I found in the store are available online so you'll just have to take my word for it. (I found 'similar' items to show what I mean above)

I'm thinking about pairing them with a black sequin top for a fun night out in NYC this weekend - I'll see if I can get Bob to play paparazzi for me. proof
