Brocade leggings 2 ways


Today I'm doing my first ever style collaboration with the beautiful and stylish Jenna over at Sincerely Jenna Marie! You may remember her from my Pinspiration post a little bit ago. After further reconnaissance, we realized we both had these awesome brocade leggings (originally worn here.) Naturally we decided to do a collabo, and the rest is history! 

 




Jacket: Express (option, option) | Scarf: The Glittered Owl | "Love" Tee (seen here): Old Navy (option, option)  | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (option, budget option)  | Leggings: Hue | Shoes: Converse One Star (option, option)

Since my original look was a bit dressier with bling and heels, I wanted to dress them down this time around. This was supposed to be my travel outfit for San Antonio last weekend, but since that trip ended up getting canceled, it was a no brainer to pack away for today coming home from a work trip. I didn't have to go into the office today, basically just had to hang out at the airport -- so, this fun pattern and color combo kept me going!

Hope you enjoyed this little collaboration to end your week! Please be sure to hop on over to see Jenna if you haven't already!

  1. I love how you each showed a different style - day vs night, if you will. Once again, that radiant orchid color looks great on you! Thanks for the ideas ladies!

    1. I don't know why I keep reaching for purple for my color pop! I usually do reds, but I've just been loving purple lately, too!
      And thank you! These leggings are great!

  2. Ok, you have made me seriously reconsider my current lack of brocade leggings! I think this look is so cute - and you really look great in purple. (That scarf looks amazingly cozy.)

  4. What a fun collaboration and I love the blend of colors you chose here. It's also fun to see these styled casually vs. a dressier option. I definitely wouldn't have expected brocade leggings to be so versatile! -Gina
