A Frosty Day in December

Plus Size Style, Style

BRRR! It has been so cold outside this past week! I have been loving it and I’m hoping it sticks around for a while longer. And, I wouldn’t be disappointed with a bit of snow either! The frosty weather has been so beautiful, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for some photos. It didn’t get above freezing the day I took these and while it was cold, it was still such a gorgeous setting!

I’ve been going back and forth on the idea of leather leggings for a while now. I knew I didn’t want completely solid leather leggings, but wanted the front half to be leather and the back half to be knit. After weeks of searching I finally found the perfect pair by NYDJ however, they then sat in my closet. I would pick them up, look at them, and set them back down again, always too afraid to wear them. Then last week fellow Seattle fashion blogger Alix Rose wrote this post about wearing leather leggings to work and I felt inspired to finally try mine out!

A crisp white blouse (which I promise WAS ironed, but sitting at my desk all day caused major wrinkles), a sweater with leather trim, and a festive necklace was the perfect combination for wearing my leather leggings to work! How do you wear your leather leggings?
