How To: Styling Faux Leather Leggings

Hi babes!

Today was my turn to share how I style my faux leather leggings and I’m so excited!! I wear these literally all fall and winter. They are my go to for just about everything and a major staple in my closet.

1. Layering with pieces you already have

An easy way to style leather leggings is to use pieces that are already in your closet. Everyone (ok maybe not everyone but still) has a plaid shirt and plain sweater in their closet. Throw them together and you have the perfect layered look. I paired it with a pair of booties but knee high or OTK boots would work well to!

2. Faux Fur Vest

Another way to style is with a longer sweater and faux fur vest! Such an easy way to keep warm as the weather starts to get colder and the holidays approach. Although not extremely dressy, this is a look i would wear for thanksgiving!

3. Casual Look

Take a long t-shirt (this one was a little longer and looser on my pre-pregnancy), layer it with a graphic sweatshirt , and throw on a pair of your favorite sneakers and you have an easy casual look! I love to run errands in something like this. I miss those days lol

4. Long sweaters and a pop of snake skin

Ugh missing my extensions and lighter hair haha but another favorite of mine is just a long sweater to cover that booty and a pop of color or print. I love the look of the snake skin print on these booties ! Also, this sweater is a MUST. It’s from amazon and can be worn off the shoulder. I wore a bralette underneath since the cuts make it a bit see through.

5. Layering with a faux leather jacket

Who else loves a little leather on leather action? Cause I know I do! This may be a little too matchy matchy but just such a simple outfit to throw together on the fly! Accessorize it with some hair pins or a headband and you are set!

6. Casual with a jacket

This is something I wore so much last year and will do the same this year. Any jacket will do but love the black and brown together.

Try It On Tuesday – 10/22/19

Happy Tuesday! I will switch on and off weekly about what I do try ons for, but for today it is more outfits 🙂 I am always looking for some cute holiday looks and actually love them all fall/winter long! So here we go 🙂

#1 & 2Plaid Skirt & White Ruffle Top

I am wearing a small in the top and medium in the bottom. I usually size up for skirts from here but always do if they are tweed or plaid. They usually run smaller but this actually was true to size and is a bit big on the hips. The top fit perfectly, but I didn’t know it would be see through. You can easily wear a tank underneath or a bralette. I also paired it with over the knee boots for that dressy pop!

#3Tweed Skirt

I love the detail of this skirt. The side lay of the button and the top layer is super cute and flirty. This skirt is perfect for so many occasions. Pair it with your favorite stockings and add the heels and it is perfect. Wearing a medium in the skirt, and a small in the bodysuit. Do not put the bodysuit in the wash haha it shrinks a bit. Wearing a 9.5 in the shoes.

#4Tiered Dress

How freaking cute is this tiered dress?! All I thought was Christmas when I saw it. I got it in a small and it fits perfectly. Another thing I love about it is the high/low detail of it. It hang lower in the back to make sure that bootie stays covered.

#5 & 6Sweater & Skirt

I had a giftcard to Red Dress and became obsessed with this outfit. They are sold out of Small in the skirt, but get on the waitlist. I am also wearing a S/M in the sweater. It is adorable and I will probably wear this for Thanksgiving!

ITEMS SHOWN

Try On Tuesday – 10/15/19

Happy Tuesday! For my #TryOnTuesdayWithWaterAndWine I am sharing items from Nordstrom Rack and Kohls that I recently ordered. I have decided to share things even if they do not work for me, because they might work for you! I will share sizing and everything under each picture. Happy shopping loves!

#1

Skirt | Top | Hat | Shoes | Shoes 2 | Shoes 3 | Rug

So this outfit actually showcases two new items. Obsessed with this look for the fall. Totally something I would wear! The skirt was a bit too thin for what I like, but is really cute and flattering. I also got this top in black. It is the perfect layering long sleeve tee and works with everything. Wearing a small in the skirt, a small in the top, and a 9.5 in the shoes.

#2

Skirt

Another outfit I am LOVING. I usually would pair this with black pieces, but wanted to showcase how you do not always have to! It really lightens it up by pairing it with white. Wearing a small in the skirt and it is still loose. It was bundled up and wrinkly so you cannot see how it really is in that sense. Everything is TTS.

______________________________________________________________________________

#3

Skirt | Boots | Boots 2 | Boots 3 | Jacket | Hat

Ok I love this skirt. Very form fitting, I would say TTS. I ordered a medium but it was baggy around my stomach. If you are curvy like me, this will be very form fitting. I am wearing a medium in the skirt. This is the same shirt as above just in black. Wearing a 9.5 in the boots and the leather jacket is a medium (big for layering).

#4

Jeans | Sneakers | Jacket | Shirt

I love some casual outfits and this for sure is one! I got this jacket from Kohl’s and it is so warm. I got a medium but it is too big/I am not keeping it because I wanted some of that sherpa wool on the outside and thought this would be more like that. I am wearing a 4 in jeans and a small in the top. The top is very oversized so you can size down but I wanted my usual size. Wearing a 9 in the sneakers.

#5

Top

I am seriously in love with this shirt. It is so cute and so flattering. Wearing a small and it is perfect.

#6

Top

Another casual top that is super cute and comfortable. You can totally size down because it is oversized but it covers the bum!

Plaid Vest

Item Details

Vest // Jeans // Similar Booties here, here & here // Shirt // Hat

Today is my first day back to work after having a few days off and it’s definitely rough! But, considering tomorrow’s Friday, hopefully these two days go fast! I have a full weekend planned that I am really excited about!

I always look for cute layering items, as you can tell from my last few posts, and always find myself buying vests. They are perfect to go over a shirt or sweater. I found this cute plaid vest on amazon while looking at some clothes and knew I had to have it. I love plaid for the fall and thought this beige one was so cute!

I am wearing a size medium in the vest so that I can layer it and a small in the top which is also from amazon. I can’t wait to show you guys more amazon pieces because some of their stuff is honestly so cute! I’m wearing a size 4 in the jeans (27) and they are TTS. The boots are Jessica Simpson a few seasons ago but I have linked similar ones for you!

Are you a plaid fan?

Knit Sweater // Leather Leggings // Boots – dupes here & here

Good morning from New Jersey friends! It has been freezing here the last few days (in the 40’s) and I am constantly trying to find ways to stay warm! When did we skip fall and go straight to winter?! Fall is my favorite season and lately I feel like we are skipping fall entirely. The leaves here haven’t been turning their usual orange/red because of how cold it is, which makes me so sad! But, I am happy that we get to light the fire place and enjoy the warmth of the burning wood. My parents fire place pictured, is my favorite. You can sit on the ledge and enjoy the fire. We lit one the other night and it reminded me so much of the holidays.

Anyway, I am so glad I purchased this sweater & these faux leather leggings. I always loved the look of an oversized sweater and leggings and the faux leather leggings really help to dress the outfit up a bit. Throw on some OTK boots and you have the perfect fall to winter transitional outfit!

My Stuart Weitzman OTK boots are always a closet staple for me. I got them when they were on sale one Black Friday and literally always wear them. I usually size up in Stuart’s by a half of size, especially if they are closed toe. I have linked some dupes as well! I am wearing a medium in the leather leggings but honestly they are a bit big and I could have sized down in them. The sweater is a bit big but it’s a one size and I was looking for an oversized sweater, so it worked out!
