Rock on witcha bad self...

Played it pretty safe with the last post. Now it's time to step out again. This past summer, my sis-inlaw gave these faux leather leggings to me after she thought they didn't work for her. I had been wanting a pair for a while, but didn't know if they would work for me either. I figured this was the perfect way to find out. I absolutely love them, but here's the thing... They're hot (looking & temperature wise lol) my legs were sweating a little bit. They're also a bit noisy. I know some of you don't have this problem, but my thighs do a little rubbing! Maybe it's TMI, but it's true. These leggings don't let you forget it, LOL!

The top, is actually the infamous blog world Old Navy sweater dress. When I first wore the dress, I thought... This is one of those pieces that you only wear once in a while because while beautiful, it's so loud and eye catching. When I looked at it in my closet, I wanted to wear it again so bad and thought, why fight it? PUT IT ON. And I did, but as a sweater, not a dress. I feel all rocker chic in this outfit. Until next time...

  2. Yes ma'am...great idea. Because you look so fab, you've inspired me to do the same. Actually, the fabulous Ms. Prissy actually have the sweater and I thought that's what she did (rock out the dress as a sweater) when she recently showcased it. You would have thought I would have figured to do it then...but no. DUH! That's why I love the fashion blog world. You ladies give me so much inspiration.

  14. Where did you hear that? That you should wear it only once in a while because it's an eyecatching print? I've seen that sweater dress from Old Navy on all the blogs but I can't find it. I would be remixing the hell out of htis. Wearing a polka dot skirt over the bottom...wearing a white collared shirt under it with a popped color then another cropped sweater of it....honey....I would wear it out!!!

  19. first - LOVE the hair, your set came out gorgeous!!! i'm gonna scroll down to see if you already gave up the deets before I ask a bunch of questions.

    Second - LOVE the outfit! i really want a pair of "leather" leggings, but I'm so trying to not buy clothes especially ones that aren't work appropriate cause then i really can't justify the expense! lol.

  22. You look amazingly fabulous! Your right, that old navy find is a blogger thang, but I must be the only blogger that can't find it. I've surely tried! Anyway I love your look and the faux leather pants. I recently found a pair I can't wait to wear. I like how you wore the dress as a top too. Great blog!
