When I'm on the fence about purchasing an item, I abide by a little rule that I created for myself: Leave it in the store and go home. If the item is still on your mind after a few days, then you can buy it. It may sound silly, but this rule has saved me from making tons of lousy impulsive investments. When I initially discovered these leggings on ASOS.com, I was unsure whether I should purchase them or not so I abided by my rule. However, when I re-visited the site to purchase the leggings after a few days had passed, they were gone! Naturally I was devastated, but life went on and I eventually got over it. Fast forward to this summer; I noticed they were back in stock and immediately added a pair to my cart. Moral of the story? For the most part, certainty is more rewarding than impulse.
What I love about this pair of leggings is the versatility that its texture provides. Here I decided to show you how to dress them up by pairing them with a suede pointy toe heel, and one of my favorite jackets. While you start thinking about throwing your own outfits together for this fall, keep in mind another one of my rules: Don't be afraid to mix and match textures!
Stay tuned for a post on how I dress these leggings down!
