Jewel Tones and Faux Leather...

So lemme just tell you all that this outfit had an extremely high likeliness of NOT making it here on the blog today.


I wore this to a party that my family threw to raise money for our family reunion which is coming up this summer.

It's definitely one of those 'fits that played out better in my head than in reality.


I was super infatuated with these faux leather pants that I scored from Target's clearance rack and I just HAD to wear them-like IMMEDIATELY!!

I figured they would be perfect for the party because clearly I hate bare legs in the winter and I felt like the pants were super sexy-especially for a party, right!?

 So I paired them with my favorite jewel tones-a royal blue NY&Co turtleneck and plum colored Guess booties-and I went.

Because I didn't want to freeze my buns off I even added my $3 faux leather vest for good measure.

I topped that off with my faux fur.....


And if you can't tell by my above facial expressions....

I hated every moment of it!!!

It was just too much for one outfit.

But I do love the backdrop!!

This outfit further reminded me that this blog is not only just for me but also for my readers. And though I may not be in love with every outfit that I wear, it's important for me to keep it real and not just display the pieces that look great on me but also the bad and ugly stuff in between. Who knows...by some miracle of chance this may serve as inspiration for someone. But I will let you all be the judge of that.

Thanks so much for listening (or reading rather) to my random outfit tribulation.

I can't wait to see your thoughts on this spectacle.

XOXOXOXOXO

  5. I really need to invest in some faux leather pants... I feel like I don't have enough 'long' tops to pull it off though. I guess that means more shopping! lol
