Welcome to my very first blog post! I’m so excited you’re here. If you haven’t had a chance to read the “About me” section yet, well then …. let me just briefly tell you a little about myself. My name is Erika and I’m a Fashion/Lifestyle Blogger based out of beautiful Southern Oregon! If you haven’t visited Oregon it’s pretty much like living in a post card. We are lucky enough to get all four seasons which makes the views at my favorite wineries even more breathtaking! Anyways, I’m simply a lover of all things fashion and beauty related, so with that said… let get this post started!
The perfect leather pants!
Now, I love wearing leather leggings and I’ve received a ton of questions on which are my favorite brand. I know how hard it can be to find a good pair of quality leggings that fit just right but are also affordable! Let me tell you I’ve tried them all and I believe I’ve found the perfect pair with just the right amount of stretch that are pretty reasonably priced! But first a little story for you. My husband and I were traveling in New Orleans and were strolling through the French Quarter as we stumbled across a higher end clothing store! I was so excited and just had to go inside and peek around. Long story short I found a beautiful pair of leather pants I just had to have regardless of the silly price! I wore them to a fancy dinner that evening and completely tore the crotch out! (insert embarrassed red face) I couldn’t believe that these high-end leathers just tore! This just goes to show you that spending more money doesn’t always mean better quality! I’ve also had countless inexpensive pairs which either wore out quickly or fit poorly. The price point for my “perfect leather” pants comes in at $135. Now, some of you may be thinking “dang girl… $135 is steep!” but compared to other brands which can be priced starting upwards of $600+ that’s darn good if you ask me, and they are amazing quality!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my pair of Aritzia Wildred Free Daria Pant Ankle cropped, faux-leather leggings and they are one of my staple items that go with ANYTHING in my closet. They are also guaranteed to get you compliments every time you wear them in public, and let’s just be honest for a minute…what girl doesn’t enjoy a compliment every now and then. I styled it above with my white shredded fringe crop from Vici Collection and Nordstrom Clutch with Genuine Calf Hair Leopard Print. I’ll go ahead and link my favorite pair for y’all below.
