Ok so I'm a mom. (duh)
And I like fashion. (obviously) But I'm not a slave to 'of the moment' trends. (For the most part) One of the things I love about Pinterest and Polyvore is that they allow me to explore all my fashion fantasies without any of the commitment.(Financial or otherwise)
I tend to see a trend, and either kind of like it or just flat out skip it and go on about my business. But every now and then I see something that strikes a chord with me and I am compelled to seek it out further.
Example: the ankle bootie. I saw them every where on everyone for so long and I was terrified to jump on that bandwagon. I just knew I would look foolish or I would buy them and have no idea what to pair them with. Thankfully I have a good group of girlfriends who help me when I have a fashion dilemma and they encouraged me to take the plunge. I'm so happy that I did.
But there is one trend I have had my eye on that I just can't seem to let go of. I am also petrified of actually trying this trend in real life.
Leather leggings. (insert shiver/cringe here)
I have posted many a collage utilizing them in everyday life as well as nights out
and pinned many an image of some chic young woman rocking the hell out of them.
but I always wonder: Can a real mom pull those off?
I mean, my life isn't all glitz and glam. Photo shoots for the blog and styled to perfection everyday. I drive carpool, pick up groceries, fold a lot of laundry and chase after babies. Glamorous celebrity, I am not.
I am a real mom with no help and dirty floors. I take my kid to the park and strolls around the shoppes.
But I wonder.........I often day dream about the perfect look and event for me to wear them. I did find a couple of fashionable moms who also blog (clearly) and they have worn them so maybe it's possible?
So......Do I dare?
I mean, I wear leggings a lot and these would just be an amped up pair right?
What do y'all think? Can a regular chick like me rock some leather leggings?
