The battle of the leggings

"I like being a woman, even in a man’s world. After all, men can’t wear dresses, but we can wear the pants."
- Whitney Houston
Blair Waldorf would be shaking her head in shame if she saw this outfit. One of her famous lines from Gossip Girl was "leggings are not pants" and I am afraid I have broken this golden rule of hers. Im always trying to push the boundaries of how I can style my leggings, and yes, in most cases I agree with Blair that they should not be worn as pants. For the right black leggings however, I can make an exception. With my new striped peplum top, I felt my black leather panelled leggings had just enough 'pant' in them to pull of this look.  Hopefully I wasn't one off those girls you cringe at when you see them walking down the street in leggings haha!

I actually didn't own a peplum top till now, suprising considering the amount of clothes in my closet ;)
But I particularly love the way this one falls low at the back and high at the front!
Have you had any favourite new additions to your wardrobe lately?

  12. Oooh, I'd say these leggings are so fabulously textured and paneled enough to be worn as pants!
    Also, I got your message on Facebook, and now I'm worried...I did have a malware thing going on a week ago, but I thought I'd fixed it. Its viewable to me and I've had others say they could access it again...please keep me updated on if you can view it!
