Fashion Friday: Loving Skinny Pants and Leggings

Fashion Friday: Loving Skinny Pants and Leggings

I’ve been wearing lots of skinny pants and leggings lately.  To be honest, it’s my go-to fall/winter look because I LOVE wearing boots.

I am all for the “no leggings as pants” rule, but I also have several pairs of actual skinny pants (that are made of a ponte-type material) that have buttons, zipper, belt loops, and pockets (and are thick enough you don’t see my skivvies through them!) so they are a bit easier to wear.

This is a sweater from Francesca’s in the mall, Lucky Brand skinny pants, and black boots from Macy’s.

On our date day to Tulsa, I wore this outfit.  It’s black ponte pants from Gibson & Latimer, a blue asymmetrical top from Dress Barn, and black boots from Zulily.

We went shopping at the Holiday Market and I got this cute vest!  I wore it with some thick black leggings, a black tunic, the vest, and a necklace from Shop Persnickety, a local boutique.  I wore some black booties from Zulily with this.  

On a rainy day, I was feeling blue, I guess.  I wore navy thick leggings from JC Penny, a tunic from Zulily, and brown boots from Macy’s.

Excuse the blurry pic, but you get the gist. I have on skinny stretchy jeans (because it was Worksgiving day!), a black sweater from Dillards, a fur vest (Gibson & Latimer from Dillards- on sale now!!!), and black boots (from I don’t remember where!).

I love the back of the vest is sweater material.

On a casual day at work, I wore a black sweater tunic from a boutique here in town, patchwork jeans from Old Navy.  The Minnetonka fringe moccasins were a steal on Amazon.

More blurry mirror selfies…but this was a switch up for me.  A pencil skirt, which I lovingly called a jumbo marker skirt. ha!  It’s from Loft.  The top is from a boutique in Hot Springs. And the glorious black wedge booties are from JC Penny.  Quilted leather and gold trim, you can’t beat it.

So that’s what I’ve been wearing lately.  I’m sharing to maybe give you some new ideas of putting fall outfits together.  And to be honest, sharing these pics helps with me self-confidence in my body.  Putting it out there isn’t easy, yo.


  1. Hi, I just have to say I love your fashion posts! I love, love the pencil skirt outfit on you, and those booties! Have a good weekend!

  2. As always, I love your picture (my favorite is the patchwork jeans and tunic). I haven’t worn skinny pants hardly, because I don’t know how to do them right. These ideas help. Yay for fall and leggings and boots!
