Turning Heads Linkup – Faux Leather Paperbag Pants with Cashmere Sweater

If I could have bought these paper bag pants in multiple colors, I would have! The comfort level is there and I love the style.

My Outfit

Cashmere, oh how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!

This pretty cardigan, worn here as a top, was a gift from my hubby a few years ago at Christmas. Who can resist the soft, buttery feeling of cashmere as the weather gets colder?

I added some bling with this bow pine green choker, a Zara purchase a few years back, that I continue to take out for the Holidays. I added this to this look for a fun and festive style.

These pants are among my favorite and I do love a paperbag style. These are faux leather and would be a great style to wear for the Christmas Holiday. Add a fitted lace top, an elegant blouse, and some sparkle, there you have it!

Whats going on

I don’t want to bore you guys and sound like a broken record, but I have been having some health challenges lately with medication drops, and have not felt well.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving as we eat outside , distancing 6 feet from my sis and niece who live in South Charlotte. It will be nice however we celebrate. I am almost done with the Christmas shopping, so mom and I will wrap together and play old favorites. I always enjoy setting the mood for Christmas, and we will put up the tree and decor the day after Thanksgiving as tradition.

    Those pants are amazing Jess. You styled them beautifully with the unique cardigan and the fabulous accessories. 🙂 On another note, I hope you feel better soon. I take my health for granted until something goes wrong of course. Then I realize how important it is to feel good from day to today! Sending prayers up!

    Absolutely stunning outfit Jess! I love how the scarf is tied, and how the green mirrors the print of your cardigan. Hope you feel better soon x

My parents are stopping in to pick up some food to take home with them, though… so, we will see them briefly! I LOVE the paper bag style of pants and oohhh these faux leather ones are a beauty! Yes, they will def. be great for holiday looks and I love the cashmere top with them!

    Jess, you outfit is adorable. Those pants, that sweater, but the choker is totally the icing on the cake! What a great accessory! I’m so sorry you continue to struggle with health issues. There is obviously nothing worse. But I am glad you will have your family with you on Thanksgiving. Definitely something to be thankful for. Take care.

    Love the beautiful fall colors and textures of your outfit! Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving holiday. It’s great that you can get together with your family and the weather is mild enough to share the meal outdoors! Hope you are feeling better soon.

    These pants are so darling and a nice eye-change from the Spanx variety. Gosh, friend, I can relate to the health challenges. Recovering from surgery #2 has some “ups”–I know what to expect and “downs”, now I’m dealing with two substandard knees for the time being. Hugs! I’m so glad you get to celebrate with family, it sounds like you have a holiday great plan.

    Love your festive outfit. Tried paper bag pants and didn’t love them on me, but maybe now I have to give them another try. Perhaps it’s the way I styled them. Or maybe they’re just not me, LOL.

    Looking forward to wrapping some presents: all I need now is to get some stocking stuffers and I will shop with a friend, and do a blog shoot at the same time. Hope you will feel better soon!

    Oh wow, Jess, this outfit is magnificent! One of my favorites of yours. I love the colors and your green bow looks amazing against your hair. The colors in your sweater are so beautiful, too. And I love that you have your mom with you now. It seems like it is helping you both a bunch! I am so sorry to hear that you are still struggling with the medication stuff. I am sure it is so frustrating. Sending you lots of virtual hugs, my friend. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    You are not being a broken record in regard to your health challenges. It is a part of your life. And I am really beginning to think I need to get some burgundy in my life. I love the way you’ve been featuring the color in your outfits lately.
