Tunic - Mint Velvet
Leather Leggings - Mint Velvet
Ankle Boots - Topshop
Purse - Pull & Bear
I have not always been a fan of leggings, opting to wear them around the house than outside. However ever since I wore my first pair to athletics training and no one made fun of my 'stocky legs' ( for so long I was very self-conscious about my legs being quite buffed up, I know, I know, but I was 12) , I have accepted them into my wardrobe and have fallen deeply in love with their sheer comfort. With that said, these pair of leather high waist leggings from Mint Velvet is one of the most comfortable things I have ever worn. They are like a more classy version of Sandy's leggings in Grease with the comfort level of your favorite tracksuit bottoms.
The tunic itself was something that I am ashamed to say, I did not hold in high regard upon first glance. I mean, I liked the print and style but was unsure of the fit and if it'd flatter my body shape. I gravitate towards clothes that are slimming and lengthening because I am so small and didn't see it giving me that. However paired with these black leggings and cute ankle boots from Topshop that my mother unknowing to her, donated to my wardrobe, I couldn't help but fall in love with it. Above all, I love the dark tones in the outfit contrasted with the white. I added the purse because tan and brown are one of my favorite color combinations of all time and I also wanted to add color that contrasted the black and white while tying it all together at the same time.
How would you have styled this tunic? And what shopping victories have you had lately? I'm currently on the look out for a slip dress, any ideas where I might bag one?
Hope you enjoyed this post, and I'd love to know what you think of it.
