What I love most about the winter months is the art of layering. I love layers, and while I can’t always keep my layers on in my scorching hot office, I still like to experiment with different pieces. This lapel houndstooth coat from ZAFUL is so light-weight that it feels more like a light sweater or cardigan than a coat. In fact, I would likely wear this underneath my winter coat, instead of as my primary source for warmth. Its houndstooth pattern includes a hint of red, making it a classic staple. I added layered it over a sleek black turtleneck and faux leather leggings, to give it the spotlight it deserves. To break up the leather leggings and avoid looking like a classic cat woman, I slipped on my OTK suede boots which are just as comfortable as my UGGs (not even kidding). So if you’re looking for a classic topper this winter, go with a fun bold pattern and keep the layers underneath solid colors and simple.

REPEAT OFFENDER

I have a confession, I’m a repeat outfit offender. I’m sorry, I can’t get enough of these leather leggings and it’s Friday, I’m exhausted from this week so today I resorted to something classic and comfortable. You can never go wrong with a fitted turtleneck and leather leggings, plus as comfortable as this is, it looks stunning and sophisticated. I’ve already raved about how amazing these leather leggings and featured this turtleneck on Wednesday (ooops!) so I’m going to keep this short and sweet. If you should purchase any two staples for this winter season let it be these two; the leggings are also available in taupe and black making them even more incredible, now you can wear them EVERYDAY (I won’t judge you).

Happy Friday, and stay warm!

A Real World Downfall

Two words: Leather Leggings. Remember the glory days (hey nostalgia!) where yoga pants and black leggings were socially acceptable to wear to and from class? And then that fateful graduation day came along and the real world was all like “no more naps at 2pm, say goodbye to that two minute walk to your besties’, oh and NO MORE LEGGINGS!” and your just left standing there looking pitiful, in tears with your graduation cap and diploma in hand and worst of all—no leggings to comfort you.  Cruel world! But we all got through it, and all because of these beautiful LEATHER LEGGINGS.  The “khaki” pair above from ZARA is sophisticated enough for me to wear to work, but comfortable enough for weekend errands. I paired it with my brand new layered pullover from Banana, and I like this sweater most of all because of its sheer bottom. I like to call this my mullet of sweaters because its all practical, warm, and cozy on top and then a sheer sexy party on the bottom. Day or night, this is your no fuss sweater!

Current college students, if you take away one thing from this post let it be not to take leggings for granted, you truly don’t know what you have until its gone. While you can revisit your leggings on the weekend it’s just not the same…it’ll never be the same. WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD!
