HOORAY, its Friday! I hope you’re all as happy as I am to see the weekend officially arrive. For me, the weekend means casual clothes fit for running errands, being comfortable, and relaxing of course. However, just because you have to do monotonous chores around town or the house that doesn’t mean you have to do them in ratty clothes. I must confess that my favorite thing to wear over the weekends are my beloved “stretchy pants,” more commonly known as leggings. They are perfectly casual, comfortable, and can actually be styled to look presentable. Magazines, the internet, or both are constantly spreading images of celebrities casually running around town and though they’re dressed down, they usually still look very put together.
Meet Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Most of us ladies will recognize her, as she graces the pages of our lovely Victoria’s Secret magazines we get in the mail. Or maybe you’ve seen her in the latest installment of Transformers. Anyhow, being an established model and aspiring actress, we can all agree that she probably has more money to spend on clothes we, or I anyways, dream our closets proudly hung.
Disclaimer – I am and have been obsessed with leather
or imitation leather and am happy that it is here to stay, at least for now! I love how it manages to give any outfit a “rough around the edges,” look without trying too hard. Leather jackets, leather panels, leather leggings, leather peplum… I could go on and on, but for your sake I’ll stop there. As for Rosie, I think that the neutral sweater and flats really balances the leather leggings and gold statement jewelry. For me, pairing flats with leather leggings is unexpected and in a good way! If you know me, you know I love a good pair of flats and am more likely to be found wearing them, than any other type of shoe. My hub appreciates that too.
With the most expensive item priced at $65, here’s how you can recreate her look:
ps. – I wasn’t a huge fan of the bag she was carrying, but I liked the style. So, I found a bag that I liked with a similar style.
Happy shopping lovers. xx
