Do ever buy something and think “This would go great with X! If only I had X…” Yeah, that happened to me when I purchased this plaid tunic. I’d been wanting a pair of faux leather pants or leggings and when I bought this top I knew it would go perfectly with them. The only problem? I didn’t have any! I bought a pair via Poshmark but they were way too small so a few days before Thanksgiving, when I was off work, I went on the faux leather leggings hunt. I must have tried on 20 pairs.  I really wanted a legging/pant hybrid so I could wear them to work without feeling ridiculous. I finally found this pair by Vince Camuto at Macy’s for 50% off. They have belt loops, a real fly, and back pockets. And, since the back of the pants is stretchy ponte material, they are super comfy. Of course, I had to go to two different Macy’s to find them in my size but I’m lucky enough that I can do that easily in Chicago.

So, I wore them to usher at the first performance of the annual Christmas concert where I work. I also wore this same outfit on Thanksgiving but wore my red sequined shoulder cardigan instead of the blazer.

I’m super excited that I found these pants. I’ve always wanted leather or faux leather pants in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember (even when they weren’t “on-trend” like they are now) and I finally have some! I have lots of other ideas on how to wear them to work this winter so hopefully you guys don’t get sick of seeing them.

    Thanks for the link to this post! You did a fabulous job of styling these pants and keeping the overall look classy. Funny we kind of went in reverse…you had the top and needed leggings. I had the leggings….needed a top to go with them!
