Faux leather leggings? I’m not sure I’m sold…

Do you ever have a trend/article of clothing that you really want to work, but for some reason you can’t make it?  Well, that’s how I feel about my faux leather leggings.  I feel weird even typing that out.  Am I too old for faux leather leggings?  Say no!!! 😦  Alas…I might be.

I didn’t even blog the first attempt, it was so bad, albeit COMFORTABLE.  At first I blamed it on the sweater.  I keep trying THAT too, and don’t like the deep V!  Grrr, two wrongs obviously don’t make a right!  Anywho, I realized I shouldn’t hide my “misses”.  So, here it is-first attempt. BlogFauxLeatherLeggingsSweater-5Did I mention how comfortable they are?  So…I tried them again.  This time I chose a different sweater…. Not 100% sold on this outfit either, but I do like it better than the first try.Blog Black HM Sweater Faux Leather Leggings-1Seriously, it’s comedic how much Maya loves the self timer sometimes.

Super Mom Tip-
Don’t be afraid to try new trends or step out of your comfort zone, but don’t spend a lot of $$ unless you try the less expensive version out.  I buy a majority of my “tries” on eBay, but I also love H&M if you like to try things on.  I actually found these Forever 21 leggings at Value Village (new with the tag!) for $2.50.  Can’t beat that for a test drive.  Even if I did crash and burn…twice.
If you find that you love it, then go for a more quality piece that will last/fit better.
