The simple joys of living in Texas...
Although I've lived in Texas most of my life, I'm always baffled and confused as to what to wear as the seasons are changing. I've had these awesome leggings (I often refer to as spanx) for quite a while but I never think to wear them during the week as I don't consider them business appropriate. However, I was asked to create a look book using these "spanx," so I'm going to give it my best shot.
Since the leggings are so dang tight, I opted to use over-sized items on the upper half of my body to balance everything out. I kept it basic with the jewelry using a watch and sparkling bracelet. Simple stud earrings would have been fine with this outfit but I didn't prefer them with the scarf because it would have been overkill.
Believe it or not, your hairstyle can make or break your overall look. I decided to pull my hair over into a simple side bun to class the look up and finished it off with a pair of black peep toe pumps. Using the same color shoe as the pant elongates my legs and gives the look that extra sass without going completely overboard.
