So this was meant to be posted yesterday, but the little Mister decided to have lotsa gas or a growth spurt or who the heck knows… So I sit here on my birthday tippity-typing away. I'm so tired and feeling crazy, well, old. So this post is kinda perfect for my mood. I feel like in my early 20's I would've never even thought to rock leather pants, but as a woman of advanced age I think they are the absolute perfect throw on and go piece. Easy Peasy. These faux leather materials are so comfortable and can easily go from chasing around a toddler to date night! They are no different than the plain jane leggings you already rock, they are just more of a statement! And what a killer statement indeed! The key is keeping your look super simple. Don't overwhelm yourself with accessories and trying to look like a bad ass. Wear them exactly how you would skinny jeans or leggings. They pair amazingly well with tunics, long billowy tees, comfy sweaters, etc. I think the key ingredient to making these leggings work is confidence. Seriously. I know it can be hard, especially after having a baby, so much is going on in your head and your body… trust me I get it, but sometimes you have to fake it until you make it! Even on the days where you can barely throw your hair up into a messy ponytail, see above^^ photos as proof, you can still feel good and cool and confident in your clothes! Did this post make any sense!? It's unclear... Time for a birthday nap.
If you are in the market for some faux-leather leggings I honestly think that these Plush are the best way to go, but here are a few others for your viewing pleasure.
