Faux Leather Leggings: The Everyday Alternative

I contemplated how to write this post a few times…. had a few different directions I wanted to take it. Then, I got distracted (#MomBrain) and fell upon some old photos from about a year ago when I was very pregnant. The temps were cooling, and I was loving the oversized chunky knits that took over my fall wardrobe. I vividly remember heading out for a date night with TJ and deciding that it was time to bust out one of my oldest, and most favorite, pair of faux leather pants (you know, those classics that come back each season…). I think I must have been in denial, thinking only my belly had grown…. because as I pulled and squatted in an attempt to get those suckers on (you know how that looks ladies!!) I heard a loud rip…. and yes, they ripped in the crotch (insert wide eyed emoji here). Cue #HormonalBreakdown. I ended up settling on my pregnancy jeans that night.

Oh, how much can certainly change in a year. I couldn’t be any less pregnant this year, and I can’t wait to pull those puppies out in due time…. actually, I’m not really sure why I haven’t yet… maybe it’s because when I stumbled across this incredibly stretchy, very budget friendly pair I was able to repress the memory of the last time I tried on my beloved pair. Needless to say, I guess you can never have too many options when it comes to leather pants. Dress them down with a pair of sneakers, dress them up with a killer pair of heels (my all time favorite pair… they’re an investment piece, but a pair I turn to time and again when I want to dress up)…. for a day of errands, toss on a cozy tunic + poncho and you’re ready in under 5 minutes (promise).

I’m sharing a few other poncho + legging favorites below…..
