Daytime Leather

2013-10-28 07.37.18It took me a loooong time to feel comfortable with the idea of wearing leather pants during the day, let alone to work.  But fashion is all about taking chances, so I wrangled myself into my leather pants (these babies are NOT easy to get on...or off for that matter) and poured through my closet to try and find a top to balance the look and not make it look like I was headed to the club.  I landed on this long plaid shirt, which is great because it provides coverage (these pants are TIGHT) and a grey cardigan which balances out the harshness of the pants. I finished my ensemble with my fave wedge booties and a statement necklace with just a touch of sparkle.  The end result is an outfit that is edgy, but still professional enough for work.
