Velvet Pants

I didn't do to much this weekend, so I don't have too much to chat about, but the weather was nice and like a proper fall; even though those leaves might be a smidge closer to yellow than red in reality.

Once again I decided to blur the line between leggings and pants. I thrifted these last fall and they were definitely originally meant to be pants - but then I skinnified them, and since the waist band is elastic, they are more like leggings now.

But you know what? I'm calling them pants.

  8. Velvet pants + velvet blazer next? Love it with the chambray, it grounds the dressier feel velvet can have. Nice to see you still wearing sandals, and your new ones at that! I eschewed tights today, although I was wearing over the knee boots.

  17. Velvety goodness. They don't look like leggings so don't fret. :) I think they're opaque enough, to be consider "pants". Tee hee! You look gorgeous as ever, hun. I hope you've been well.
