fall style guide :: how to wear leather pants

it’s FALL, y’all 😉

do I talk about this enough?
sorry, I’m too obsessed to stop!

the salted caramel mochas… the crunchy leaves… the amazing fresh air… ❤

one of my favorite things about autumn, though, is the style.

it’s not quite cold enough where I am to be tugging on the sweaters yet (although this weekend is pretty promising, in the low 50’s!), I’m still trying to let autumn influence as much of my wardrobe as possible!

there are several style trends that poke their heads out in the fall, and one of them has always both intrigued and intimidated me… leather pants.

I’ve been staring at h&m’s for probably three years now, unwilling to cave and spend the $40 on something I didn’t really know how to incorporate into my wardrobe. (and, let’s face it, I’m a broke young wife.) but this fall, as I was digging through their clearance racks, I came across the last pair in my size for a whopping $4.50.

yes, you read that right.

it was a sign, for sure.
so, of course I bought the four-dollar leather pants (and a $3 striped tee, because of course.) and floated out of the store on cloud nine. that was three months ago, and for a long while they sat on the top shelf of my “closet” un-worn. 

like I said, I’ve always been kinda intimidated by leather pants. they give off such a “I’m a kick-ass girl boss who has all her junk together.” kind of vibe. and, let’s be real, I don’t always have it all together, so I wasn’t really sure if I was entirely worthy qualified to wear leather pants.

nevertheless, there I was, trying to put an outfit together around these $4.50 leather pants.

after MUCH failure, I figured it out… I think… I guess you can be the judge 😉
