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 On Tuesday on a Thursday – 11/14/19

Sorry another one that is late haha but I went to target Tuesday night to add some more onto it and they had like nothing and then someone kept asking me if I was okay talking to myself in the dressing room.. then I decided it would be good to put a piece of furniture together myself and it took me hours LOL

I shared some of these last week but wanted to show them styled.

#1 | Buffalo Plaid Sweater

If you want this slightly baggy, you should order a size up! I am wearing a medium. So cute with leggings or jeans.

______________________________________________________________________________

#2 | Black Thermal

Wearing a small and it fits perfectly. Perfect for layering or just to wear on its own. I will get a ton of use out of this 🙂

______________________________________________________________________________

#3 & 4 | White Thermal & Brown Boots

Wearing a small in this white thermal. Is it warm but see through, which I didn’t expect. I wore a black sports bra and high waisted leggings for the try on and you could see it through the shirt. Also this teddy coat is the WARMEST. I got a medium. The boots are TTS.

______________________________________________________________________________

#5 & 6 | Orange Jacket & Lined Hat

This jacket and hat were the warmest combo !!! The hat is fleece lined and perfect to keep your ears warm and the jacket was the same. Wearing a small in the jacket and it fits great with room for heavier stuff underneath.

______________________________________________________________________________

#7 & 8 | Pajamas & Robe

This is the warmest robe!! Also if you are looking for a robe to pair with any pajama this is it. Also love this pajama set. Wearing a small in pajamas and M/L in robe.

Try On Tuesday – Target – 10/29/19

Happy Tuesday! One of these days I’ll do a try on of shoes because shoesday Tuesday rhymes and sounds good LOL. Anyone I ran into target the other day, and I really loved so many of the items I saw so decided to grab them and do a try on. I’ll do a try on in the store with more items soon but was in a rush and couldn’t spare the time to do it there. Anyway, I paired the pieces together so it doesn’t look like much but I will be sharing 5 items!

#1 & 2 | Plaid Shirt & Fur Vest

I’m so sad because this exact plaid shirt isn’t up on their site just yet, so I’ll share similar ones they have and update this when I see it pop on! Anyway, I wanted an oversized look so I got the medium but it’s an oversized shirt so a small would have been perfect too. The vest is a one size. I loveeeee fur vests and plaid for the fall! Such cute items that pair so well together.

______________________________________________________________________________

#3 & 4 | Leopard Sweater & Girlfriend Jeans

I am broad in the shoulders so would prefer to size up in a top like this, but it’s a really cute sweater. I’m wearing a small. It’s a warm sweater and I think this whole outfit is perfect for work. Whether your company has business casual jeans day everyday or just on Friday’s, this is the perfect workday outfit. You could also pair it with closed toe heels and you are good to go! I love these girlfriend jeans which are also not on their site yet so I will share a pair that are. I am wearing my normal size 4 here.

______________________________________________________________________________

#5 | Oversized Sweater

I thought I grabbed a medium in this for oversized but when I took it off after the try on I saw it was a small LOL so you can stay true to size and still get an oversized fit. I love casual outfits that are still a bit dressy. I also wanted to show case that leather leggings can be worn more casually. I would have loved it better If I paired it with my chuck Taylor’s, but they were in my car or at my parents house haha

Target Try On 6/26

Hi Babes. I’m getting a ton of messages that swipe ups are not working correctly on Instagram stories, so from now on I’ll include my try on sessions on my blog too!

I had a quick few minutes so I stopped at Target and decided to do a try on with a few pieces. I’ll also include some items I am currently crushing on below.

 

#1 || Leopard Dress & Black Cami

Not only is this overall dress perfect for the summer, but it can be transitioned into any season. It would look so cute with OTK boots and a long sleeve body suit for the fall or winter. I’m wearing a size S and would say it’s TTS! This cami is perfect as a piece for underneath clothing items or with high waisted shorts/pants. Wearing a S!

 

#2 || Camo Shorts & Brown/ Orange Sweater

It’s so hard to find shorts that aren’t booty shorts. I’m 5’8″ and always have the worst luck! These 4″ long shorts do the trick and cover it all up! They are TTS (I am wearing a 4), and fit so well. The sweater is literally so cozy and perfect for the transitional seasons. Pair it with shorts, jeans or a skirt and you have a cute outfit ! I am wearing a S, and would say this is also TTS.

 

#3 || Maroon Shorts & Twill Shirt

These shorts are the same as the camo just a different color, I seriously love the fit. TTS wearing a 4. This top is honestly the best. I have it in the light pink and love how it looks paired with anything, especially white shorts or jeans. Wearing a S.

 

#4 || USA shirt & Denim Overalls

How perfect is this for the 4th?! This USA tee is a cropped tee and although you can go with your normal size, it’s oversized. I love shirts like this! And these denim overalls, they fit like a dream! I’m wearing a S in both.

Some of my other favorites are:

Black Friday Haul Part 1

Hi Babes!

Happy almost Friday! Is it just me or has this week been dragging on?! I finally got some stuff in that I ordered on Black Friday and figured I would do a Haul for you. I also did a try on session in my stories on Instagram (@waterandwine_) so be sure to check it out!

Anyway, I was really looking for sweaters and cute but casual tops on Black Friday. Ones that can easily be dresses up and down depending on my mood or my plans. I’ll share all sizing info as well and will do another Haul when the rest of my stuff comes in! I ordered a few more things.

Outfit 1: Top, Jeans, Boots

Outfit 2: Top, Faux Leather Spanx, Booties

Outfit 3: Top

Outfit 4: Jacket

Outfit 1: I was looking for a top I could wear with a skirt for either work or everyday that wasn’t too low cut! Target definitely delivered. I would suggest sizing down in this. I thought it would be tight but it was kind of lose. I also thought I ordered the small but I got a medium so I am going to exchange it! The jeans I have had and I am wearing a 27 (size 4). These boots are so cute! They are Jessica Simpson and go to the shin. They are cute to wear with either jeans or a dress/skirt! They are TTS and I’m wearing my normal a 9.5!

Outfit 2: So I am slightly obsessed with this top. I really wanted it in black as well, but I waited to long and it was sold out. It’s the perfect little sweater top if you are hanging out or traveling. It’s extremely light weight and can be dressed up or down. I’m wearing a small here! The spanx faux leather leggings will likely become my favorite go tos. I’m so glad I invested in them. They really suck you in! I am wearing a medium. Lastly, I’ve blogged about my shoes before but I love these Calvin booties! I’m wearing a size 9.5 and they are TTS.

Outfit 3: Another Target find! Love this little casual sweater. The slits on the side make it a little dressier and it’s so comfortable!

Outfit 4: I wasn’t sure about this coat when I first got it but I LOVE it! I ordered a medium hoping I could layer underneath, and I totally can! I think it would look good with jeans or a dress!

What do you think of the outfits? Also let me know what you think of these blog posts of the hauls in the comments below!
