Soft/Leather Mix

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Old Town Alexandria is a beautiful, quaint, quiet little neighborhood near us. It's one of the oldest communities still standing (since 1749!), so if you spend some time exploring the area, you're likely to find gorgeous narrow cobble-stoned alleys, tiny original houses and antique brick-lined walls and streets. We were out and about this weekend and came across this gorgeous bike tunnel near the harbor. It was a cool, grey day and you can see the mood perfectly in these pics. I'm wearing one of my favorite oversized cozy grey sweaters (which is now 10 years old!) And paired it with these cool faux leather leggings from Zara. They're not your typical leather leggings because they're cotton/spandex in the back, making them uber comfortable. I love wearing something cozy and soft like a big wool sweater with shiny, faux leather leggings. The combination is unexpected because of the mix of hard and soft. And that's what fashion's all about, really! Trying new things with an unexpected result that's still appealing.

  1. You look so cozy in your knit sweater and knit beanie. Perfect for the chillier weather! I actually took a road trip down south over a year ago and Old Town Alexandria was on my list of places to stop by! It was such a perfect place to spend a few hours. :)
