Inspired by Pinterest: Yellow + Black leather leggings!

10:00 PM

Whenever you fall into a wardrobe slump, Pinterest is definitely the place to go to find that much needed inspiration.  Last week, I was feeling really drained and just didn't have the energy to even think about taking a photo or blogging.  But I'm always online and checking out Pinterest.  

While browsing, I repinned the above.  It's really a simple outfit and I knew I had all of the components to make it happen.
It started out really chilly today and I was prepared to go head first on this look with a knit beret and coat.  But the mercury rose so quickly that I ditched the hat and coat and was damn near ready to peel off the leggings!
So I guess you can say my look is a "modified" version!  And I added wedges instead of pumps.  I had a lot of walking to do today and I was also pushing Isabella around, so I needed more stable footwear.  
Wearing:  J. Crew sweater; bag: Urban Expressions; leggings: McCall's 6404; Steve Madden Wedges.

Sidenote:  I'm currently cutting out pieces for Spring.  When the mercury sticks, I want to be ready!
