My Favorite Leather Pants + How I Style Them

If you are at all into fashion, you have likely picked up on the fact that leather is allllll the rage this season. Up until that point, I had seen a lot of other style influencers rocking their hot pants, and while I do like the look, I don’t see myself wearing them anytime soon (maybe in 2023?) if I was going to be out and about like we would under normal circumstances.

When I go shopping, I try to make sure that whatever piece of clothing I am buying matches my lifestyle. Much of 2020 was spent at home thanks the the COVID-19 pandemic and it is likely that 2021 will look the same. With that being said, recently, comfort has been key.

I purchased my vegan leather cargo jogger pants from Abercrombie for $89 back in November. At the time I wasn’t sure if they would be worth the money, but as a major Abercrombie stan, I had high hopes that I wouldn’t be disappointed.

While my pants are sold out in most sizes, Abercrombie sells a very similar pair for the same price that come in a teal green, a tan, and a black and are in stock in most sizes.

They are so chic, so flattering and comfortable that I cannot recommend them enough.

I have shared a few different ways that I have styled these pants. They are adorable with a sweater and chunky sneakers, as well as with a turtleneck bodysuit and suede booties. I’m excited to style again them in a couple of months with a crop top and heels for a night out.

Most of the items that I styled with my joggers are old or out of stock, so here are some similar ones to purchase if you are interested in stealing my style-

Pink puff sleeve sweater / Chunky gray sweater / Alexander McQueen inspired platform sneakers / Olive green turtleneck / Gray suede bootie

Fall 2017 Favorites

Hi everyone and happy November!

It is so hard to believe that November is already halfway over and that Thanksgiving is next week. This year has been busier than ever — with fall semester of my senior year now in full swing, the pressure is on to apply to jobs and study hard. Not to mention that I am also interning part time at a marketing research firm….

With so much on my (and every other senior’s!) plate right now, it is important to have products that I can depend on. With this in mind,I have come across a few new things this fall that I naturally had to share with you all. So let’s get into my fall 2017 favorites!

An awesome planner 

I got this cute planner on sale at Michael’s and I have to say that it has definitely kept me organized. I would be lost without this thing, and not to mention its adorable marble print!

A great pair of jeans 

As a girl with thicker thighs and a butt, I never loved skinny jeans because I do not find them very flattering on my body type. So when I finally saw straight-leg jeans reappear in stores, I knew that I had to get my hands on a pair. I got an incredible pair from Madewell that I have LIVED in this fall. They are so comfy and I love the cut of them. The only cons are the price tag and the fact that they only come in one color. Madewell, please release these in darker washes!!

A comfy pair of motorcycle boots

Not a riding boot or LL Bean Boots kind of gal? I’ve got you, fam.  These Aquatalia boots are my favorite boots in the entire world, although very expensive. (Psst! They’re on sale for 54% off at Nordstrom Rack right now so snatch them up while you can!) They are so incredibly comfortable, warm and also waterproof, making them the perfect boot for wintertime. My sister and I have both lived in them for the past two years until we decided it was time to part ways with them because they were beaten to death. Naturally, I just repurchased them because of the sale!

A Dark Liquid Lip

While this is a new favorite of mine and have only worn it once or twice on nights out, I have to say that I was blown away by the Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment in Wild Night. Its a very deep purple and I like that it makes my teeth look white. I did not think that I could pull off a dark lip before trying this out!

Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette  

When I spotted this amazing contour palette for $25 at Marshal’s after eyeing the full price item for nearly a year, I knew that I had to pick I up. While the one I just picked up is in its old packaging, which probably explains the difference in pricing, the pigmentation of these powders is incredible. I love using a bit of the middle banana shade to brighten the area under my eyes for everyday and then using the lightest contour shade to chisel out my cheekbones when I want to step up my makeup look.

Setting Spray

The Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray is my saving grace for nights out. After spending half an hour on my makeup, I want to ensure that my time was not wasted so I use this stuff to lock everything into place. It keeps my entire face looking nice for hours. Just make sure to wait to spray it on face after your mascara is completely dry to avoid making a mess under your eyes.

Keyboard cover

After having had to recently replace my computer, I knew it was time to take better care of my new one. With this in mind, I searched Amazon for a keyboard cover, as I often find myself spilling coffee and God-knows-what-else on my keyboard, which probably was something that led to my poor past computer’s demise. This Mosiso one is a great option — I purchased it on Amazon and while it took a day or so to get used to, I barely notice it anymore when I type on my computer. I also love the cool marble effect that it adds to my computer.
