If these leggings don't scream sass - I don't know what does. I found them recently during one of my daily online window shopping excursions and immediately pinned them to my must-buy pinboard.  While I have been wanting to invest in real leather leggings, I have such a hard time finding ones that fit me well as a gal under 5'4".  Most are too long, too short/high in the rise, and gape at the waist but fit me in the hips.  Le sigh - the trials and tribulations of being a NORMAL woman.  But I grabbed these faux ones the moment I saw them and while I am slightly in between sizes (S and M), I kept the M because they are a tad more comfortable.  I think 10 years ago, I would have kept the small instead and been uncomfortable every time I wore them, so it's a good thing I found them years later. The more ya know.  And topping it off is my new infinity scarf that I cannot get enough of, and wool fedora that surprisingly keeps me much warmer than a traditional beanie.  Finally we cannot bypass my favorite piece of all - the cape!  I have had this cape for at least 4 years and wear it without fail every year over and over and over.  It's so easy to throw on with a pencil skirt, jeans or leggings - it makes any outfit a bit more fancy.  I like to live by the motto - 'when all else fails, put a cape on it'.  Do any of you have leather/pleather leggings?  What brands/fit are your favorite?

Cape - Club Monaco (old but similar here and here) | Leggings - Trouve via Nordstrom | Turtleneck - Banana Republic | Hat - Urban Outfitters | Shoes - J.Crew (old but similar here and here) | Gloves - Club Monaco

  2. I love the top photo - if that's not an "I am freezing my butt off" face, I don't know what is!
