LA CATRINA de LA Moda: Outfit: sweats, leather, & leopard

Outfit: sweats, leather, & leopard

like a fella, with the grace of a lady ;)





Hello!
I have to admit that so far this outfit above is one of my favorites from this Fall.  I am pretty sure that there are outfits that you have put together that for one reason or another  stay in your heart forever!;)  Well, for me this is one of those outfits.  The funny part is that this was a very spontaneous outfit.  I was having a sick day where I wanted to look anything but sick. So what better way to defeat a cold than by dressing up, and putting together an amazing outfit ....right?!

-the break down-

the JACKET: This jacket was such an amazing buy from over two years ago! It was somewhat of a splurge for me at $140, but definitely worth it!

the BLOUSE: I recently scored on two of these button downs at the Macys "old lady" department... okay the Missy career wear department for $17 each! I definitely want to go back to get more colors.

the PANTS: these sweat pants are a very hated pair of pants by every single member of my family.  I totally see why, since the shape and fit is not very traditional, but that's why I LOVE them!

WEARING:
GUESS leather jacket, ELEMENTS via MACYS blouse, FOREVER 21 sweats, STEVEN by STEVE MADDEN purse, JEFFREY CAMPBELL mariel wedge

sometimes the best outfits are not planned, and are just born spontaneously at the spur of the moment! :)

Hope you all had an amazing weekend.  I had a very relaxing weekend.  I Got to meet new amazing friends at a Los Angeles Fashion Week event hosted by Fashion Los Angeles and Two Point Oh LA (I will share more on that later) and also got to spend some quality time with my boyfriend and checked out the new Santa Monica Place which I LOVED :) 

have a GREEEEAAAT week

You look so cozy and warm in this outfit! Definitely a perfect combination because you're right- it's not traditional (esp. the pants which I think only you can pull off!)

Can't believe that blouse was $17! I love it!! And as for leather jackets..how can you ever go wrong!

Glad you had a great weekend and hope you're feeling better Ari! :)
