15 Nov Jess in a Sporty Style! Styling Spanx Faux Leather Leggings
I finally fell for the “hype’ and bought the Spanx faux leather leggings this year and decided to style them in a sportier way.
Street Style or Sporty Style
I styled them in a “street” or “sporty style” today – which I do admit, is not something you see me wear often. The purchase of these faux leather leggings has been well worth it, as I have already worn them several ways on the blog-

I did size up one as I don’t like things tight or compression on my gut.
I know you might find this hard to believe, but I didn’t have any leggings until last year with a pair from Soft Surroundings. I had workout “gym” leggings, but those don’t count as fashionable staples as we don’t go anywhere after working out ( cause I work up quite a sweat!)
So, I have been wanting to wear my Vince Camuto leopard sneakers for a bit now, and thought this was one way to do it!
I loved the knit leopard design and thicker sole. Since it has gotten colder, I layered my thicker leopard cardigan over my chocolate brown turtleneck. Remember when I talked about combining brown and black in this post? This is another example.
This is such an easy combo for running errands, going out for drinks, whatever the occasion where you want to look put together, but at the same time, dress a bit more casually. Here you are replacing the skinny jeans with the leggings, and layering using a basic turtleneck. The sneakers are considered “fashion sneakers”, so you could easily wear a pair of leopard slip ons or something similar.
We had 2 very nice dinners last week, as my brother and sister bought a house near us and are going to move here in Jan. My hubby is in Real Estate, ( and IT) so that was nice too! To celebrate, we went to a restaurant we haven’t been in awhile, and I had a crab cake salad. I do think I could eat crab cakes every other day! We also met my sister one afternoon in the “Hip” area of town, as there are many new restaurants to explore .We decided on “STIR” ( don’t you love the one word named places?) and they have an extensive mixed drink menu, ( hence the name) but we ordered wine and beer. Fried green tomatoes, oysters and fish tacos followed.
