Happy Monday!

Someone recently asked me, faux leather pants/leggings versus real leather and vice versa? I have to say, the curated wardrobe needs both. Here, I’m wearing faux leather leggings for soccer practice, a quick coffee run, and overall comfort. When I wear real leather pants , I’m usually going out. They’re more structured and the material is thicker. I wear them with a drapey tunic, or a sequin top for more drama.

Below are some cute trenches and plus one for the mister in your life:

If you are going to invest in leather pants, opt for high waisted. These are cute and I included some real leather options below:

Here’s my outfit details from today’s post!

You all know I’m obsessed with my faux leather leggings. Lately, to switch it up, I added this wine colored cropped version. Here I styled it with a long vest, turtleneck and a belt to cinch the waist and tie it all together. If I was really feeling playful, I’d add black nikes for the ‘ol school run. What do you think? Do you prefer black or wine? See this post featuring my fave $30 black faux leather leggings.

2 Ways to Elevate your Look

1.Take care of your clothes – press and dry clean them. This may sounds simple, but it makes a huge difference in the long run. 2. Invest in the right accessories, for example, my turtleneck is $30, my belt is $450, priorities. I will get a lot of mileage out of the belt. I save on simple basics but splurge on right high end accessories that will elevate any all black or faux leather legging look.

Feel free to share your tips in the comments, happy Monday!

Don’t get me wrong, some of my favorite outfits are centered around a black moto jacket. However, I’m ready to ditch it for a hot minute while I try the tan version. I’m obsessed with camel, tan taupe, dirt brown, or however you like to call it. It goes with my ever-growing black-out wardrobe and looks great layered. Brown on brown, or dark brown on light brown, anyone? On this occasion, it was our day date; admittedly a rare occasion with work demands, late nights and let’s admit it, we’re just plain tired. So, we left the house for a date at Urth Caffé which included lots of coffee, boba, funky salads and some antique furniture exploring. Fun right? So, in between giving myself a break from the boyfriend cardi’s, and chunky knit sweaters, I’ll be wearing this tan version on repeat. ps. I just bought this cami to go underneath. Cheers to day dates, chillier days and lots of layers. Happy Fall!
