Stripes, Plaid and Leather

How fun is this combination? A little bit of pattern mixing with a splash of faux leather makes for an outfit with edge. You can bet that I’ll be pulling these leggings out more as the weather cools down. I love that it adds a different texture to a look.

Do you have faux leather leggings? If full leather leggings are a little intimidating, try ones that have leather insets.



While I love the look of this outfit, to wear it out and about I would switch out the sweater for a tunic. It doesn’t quite cover enough of my bum for regular wear 🙂
