Double Breasted Blazer + Leather Pants

Time. Time goes by so fast, it’s almost impossible to do everything we want to accomplish in one day.  I may or may not have added too much on my plate, but I will let you know if I have.

Outfit Details

The double breasted blazer is one of my favorite fashion must-haves of this season. It’s the most chic thing in my closet right now and comfy. My favorite thing about this outfit is that I did not have to try too hard to make this chic and effortless. Since it is still cold out, I decided to wear my leather pants and this beautiful velvet top. A accessoried with black heels and a bold red lip.

T H R E E M I X: The Leather Pants

The Threemix series; this is where I show you how I’ve styled a piece of clothing three different ways. Today’s style piece is the leather pants. Leather pants are as versatile as jeans. The trick about leather pants is knowing when to wear them. If it’s too hot, you are going to sweat all the liquid from your body. If it’s too cold, then you’ll freeze because they are not warm. However, they make any outfit look super cool, that’s a fact. While there are plenty of super cool leather pants out there, you just have to find the right style for your needs. I was fortunate enough to have found these biker/moto style pants at Goodwill for $4.00; retail for $700.

Happy Fashion,

Karla

The Tartan Blazer + Leather Pants

What’s the difference between tartan and plaid? I didn’t know, so I googled and I ended up more confused. However, I like the name tartan more than plaid to be honest AND when the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle wore a similar pattern coat (here) as my blazer, the Brits called it tartan. It’s a cool name, so I stuck with it.

Outfit Details

These are my beloved leather pants and it’s the first time I pull them out of the closet this season. I was going to wear them with this simple long t-shirt and these black boots. However, turns out it was colder outside than I expected and I was going to wear a sweater but something about this blazer looked cooler. I wanted the outfit to look more structured so I added this belt with it. I looked like a complete badass in this outfit and I loved it.

Fall & Winter Round-up

Now that Spring is officially here, I wanted to round up my top six favorite looks for the fall and winter season. There are always outfits that I look back at and I’m like, “yeah, that was a badass out!”. But there are also times when I look back at an outfit and I’m like, “What?!” We all have those moments when things don’t go as expected but then, there are those memorable outfits. So today, we’ll be turning the page back to look at my favorite fall and winter outfits.

FALL

 

WINTER

Oversized Denim Jacket + Leather Pants

I love anything oversized because that means I can wrap my body around it and be cozy all day long. I will admit though this is not  my denim jacket, I actually borrowed it from my husband. Although, I have officially reclaimed it (purchased it at Goodwill for him for $5.00) so the jury’s out on who really owns it now, lol.

Outfit Details

I wanted an all black look because black dominates the winter season. Yes, there’s the dark hues of purple, green, red, orange etc but there’s something so badass about an all black outfit. I like to mix fabrics and love the look of different textures mixed together; for this outfit I mixed wool, leather and denim. At first, I put this outfit together with just the leather pants and boots because I loved how the pants and booties elongated my legs and made this outfit look badass. Since I wanted an all-black look I added this black turtleneck sweater vest and long-sleeve shirt underneath. Once I put the outfit together I knew something was missing to really make this outfit look together. That’s when I saw it staring back at me, my husband shooting this outfit with his denim jacket. I unapologetically asked him to remove his jacket and to hand it over; sorry not sorry.

Puffer Coat + Leather Pants

I use to hate wearing turtlenecks because I could not stand the feeling of excess fabric on my neck. However, I can’t get enough of them now as an adult. They are like a low-key scarf attached to your sweater; at least, that’s how I look at it.

Outfit Details

These leather pants are actually one of my top and favorite thrift store finds. I’ve actually worn them a couple of times but I have to be honest, once it gets too cold, they’re not that warm. I did keep warm with this beautiful olive green merino wool turtle neck that I purchased BNWT from Goodwill. I wanted a more casual look so I kept things simple by wearing a pair of leopard print booties and my gap puffer jacket.

Sweater: Banana Republic Merino Wool Turtleneck, purchased at Goodwill: $4.00 / Leather Pants: Elizabeth & James “Addison” Lambskin Leather Moto Pants, purchased at Goodwill: $5.00 / Shoes: Gap Booties / Jacket: Gap Puffer Jacket / Outfit total: $9.00
