Hi Everyone! Happy Wednesday! I'm so excited to share with you a blogger collaboration today. Over the next six weeks, we will be covering a trend each week where each of us will style it differently. This week's trend is Leather. Leather has been a Fall trend for many years, so it's a no-brainier that it would be back this year. I decided to create an outfit around my faux leather leggings, and coincidentally, Sydney from Sydney's Fashion Diary did too. Sydney uses this pair of leggings and transforms it from a day to night look. You can view her blog post here. I went for a very casual look, but I suppose you can wear this out for date night as well. My outfit consists my most frequent Fall/Winter combination - oversized sweater + skinny bottoms, in this case, faux leather leggings.

When paired with booties, these faux leather leggings and booties together can pass for legging boots, which  I think is a brilliant idea until you have to wash them. I'm not quite sure how I would go about washing legging boots so for now, I will just imitate it by wearing separate pieces.

I hope you enjoyed our blogger collaboration and this week's trend. Don't forget to see how the other girls are styling the leather trend! Feel free to share how you're styling the Leather trend in the comments below. I would love to read how you're wearing leather.
Thank you so much for reading! :)

    I love that we use the same styling piece. Great minds think alike =) I love your over-sized sweater, Christine. It looks so comfy and chic. Looking forward to the next 5 weeks. Thank you so much for putting effort into this. Enjoy your day!

  5. What a great first week for the collaboration! Thank you Christine for putting it together...Everyone looks so amazing! LOVing the way you paid the bootie with the faux leather legging... even down to matching the seam, the whole look was pulled off very well. Looking forward to the next 5 weeks!

  12. Hi Christine!

    Just stumbled onto your website while looking for blog entries about the Express Scuba Legging. I'm glad I found you! I was just wondering... what size did you end up getting? I'm in between sizes and can't decide wether to keep the one which is a bit on the snug side or go with the other which fits more comfortably, but is a little loose on the waist so I kinda have to pull it up once in a while. Do they shrink or get loose at all with wear and with time (after a few washes)?

    Thanks so much in advance (^—^)

  13. Hi there! I ended up with size XS and it fits snug on me. The leggings don't lose shape nor do they lose fit after washing. I would recommend staying with the one you have because the waist can get loose during the day but returns back to normal after washing. I hope this helps :)
