January is the month most of us vow to start saving money & I a most def one of them. This month I decided to purge things in my closet that I no longer want in order to learn to appreciate the clothes that I do have. During this closet clean out, I found a long-lost pair of faux leather pants that I scored last year from Target for a whopping $20. I am so mad at myself for just now finding them among all my crap, but I am glad that I did. 

Last week, I decided to wear my faux leather leggings out while running errands around town. They were super comfy & most importantly stylish. Pairing them with a simple white tee, moto boots & some sparkle made it a simple + chic outfit. Later that night, N wanted to grab a bite to eat & I really didn't want to take off these faux leather pants, because they were so cozy. A quick decision to throw on a striped chiffon blouse, black suede heels & the silver Saddle Ring turned the outfit from casual to sexy. (& N didn't seem to mind the leather!) The Saddle Ring is absolutely beautiful with a re-sizable back. They even sell it in gold! Perfect for any outfit!  

I can vouch that these are one of my new favorites in my closet & I plan on wearing them plenty throughout the rest of the winter. & to be on the safe side, I have already started looking for another pair, just in case I wear these babies out. These are some of my current favorites:
