Faux Leather Leggings - A Simple Edgy Look for Any Season

Hope you all had a lovely Labor Day Weekend! We sure did.  It's was one of those lazy weekends doing nothing which happen to be my favorite! I'm definitely a home body. Although we did take the kids out to eat Sunday and then we went house hunting which was fun....but it just made me long to get out of this rental even more.  Soon enough though.

However, we are in September ....FINALLY....even though it's still technically summer and Atlanta is boiling with temps still in the upper 90's.  Hopefully it will start to cool down soon so we can start layering and really get into the swing of fall fashion!

If it's still sweltering wherever you are this look works for any season really! It's really simple yet still edgy.  I'm so obsessed with leather ....or faux leather leggings right now because you can wear them with just about anything and if you go for faux leather you are more than likely getting a lightweight pair which is what I prefer especially in this heat.  These leggings I purchased at Forever 21 and I loved them so much that I bought several pairs.  They aren't too thick but are still thick enough with a good amount of stretch to them.

My Utility Blouse is from Aeropostale and has a chambray look to it but it's more of a silk material and not so much a chambray.  I also love the longer length in the back because when it comes to leggings I'm a firm believer your bum should be covered, if you are wearing them as pants.  Adding to this look is this amazing faux leather fringe backpack.  I see these almost daily and I actually got this one FREE!  Well, actually, my hubby got it free as a promo item from Victoria's Secret when he bought me some things for Christmas.  This little backpack is the perfect size and if you're a mom like me it's perfect because it fits a lot in it and you can just toss it over your shoulder and go!

The black booties are also one of my favorite parts of this look.  I got these last year in H&M and believe it or not they still have them in some of the stores.  I paid full price but I'm 99.9% sure they are clearance now.  You can't see really well but they are black suede in the front and the back is like a black tortoise shell texture....ADORABLE! These are one of my go to booties for fall and winter because they pair well with jeans, leggings or dresses and can be worn with casual looks or for an evening out!

I'm also wearing my favorite Cat Eye Versace Sunglasses the hubby got me and this amazing tribal style bib necklace.....also from Forever 21! They have several similar style of necaklaces like this one ....but this was my fave!!

Next week I'm hoping to bring you some more fall styles......and hopefully this weather will cooperate and drop a bit! Until then .....I know you are all excited for New York Fashion Week!  It starts tomorrow and now is when I really miss living 10 minutes from Manhattan.  I must admit I'm a little jealous of everyone that will be there in person but you can also watch the events online HERE!
