Amour

Last week I thought to myself, how can I make leather leggings acceptable in the workplace, especially in government? The answer came with a chambray tunic and a cozy cape and a lot of meetings that took me out of the office in more creative environments. I met up with my friend and past intern, Naomi and it blew her mind that I was able to get away with it since she can't at her PR agency. For me, it was just about downplaying the leggings almost as much as I should (I had to wear these snakeskin shoes!) Later that evening, I changed from these heels into snakeskin flats.

I cannot find a cute chambray shirt for a good price! :( Thought I did at Sears, but when I tried it on, I noticed it had weird poofy sleeves.

very impressive; pushing the styling limits in the professional arena is one of my favorite hobbies! i have yet to try to get away with leather leggings (not sure my figure can get away with those anywhere, unfortunately...) i always feel satisfied when i can almost-appropriately style long maxis or super silly vintage dior or oscar de la renta professional pieces from the 70s.

This makes me happy. I often wonder how I can wear my leather leggings to work and not make a scene. This inspires me!
