When life gets hectic and you have no time on your hands, you instinctively yearn for comfort. Spending many hours in the office in a constricting attire leaves me with no other desire but to wear something "easy" that I almost won't feel having on. This sweater has been that type of piece for me ever since it was delivered to my front door, and so are these leggings that I find myself wearing way more than any other pair of pants in my wardrobe. A leather jacket, a mini bag with a chunky chain and a pair of knee high boots give you some edge without taking away comfort.
I forgot the day when I wore leggings as a part of my outfit - and I am not talking about my yoga or picking up around the house outfit. I am talking going out outfit. However, lately it's been an obsession of mine to obtain a pair of leather (or pleather) leggings, and, of course when I saw these, I could not hold myself back. It also work out perfectly in regards to unbearably windy Florida February weather - man, I am not even kidding, somehow the wind here by the ocean is the worst!!! Well, if you are thinking of getting yourself a pair - I must warn you - these shiny beauties are quite warm, amazingly comfortable to wear and most pleasant to touch!
I would not be able to describe my love for ponchos (see other post) and capes even if I tried. They are just the comfiest thing on Earth in addition to being so incredibly versatile. This one must be my absolute favorite at the moment just due to its length and neutral color that's has been crazy popular this fall/winter season!
Pairing it with burgundy (the IT color not only this winter, but winter 2014)was a winning choice. I love me a turtle neck and a midi with a twist (see herring bone detail), and of course the structured tote bag - this outfit not only makes a statement, but is extremely comfy and surprisingly warm!
