Style Me Friday + Fashionista Next Door



Hi dolls.  Today I am linking up with my girl, Eboni.  She does a Style Me Friday post every single Friday and kills it every time.  She just started a linky link so YOU can recreate the look yourself and show her what you did!  Sounds pretty FUN, huh?  Head on over HERE so you can get in too!!! 

Today’s Style me Friday look was all about Leather Pants and Utility Vests. 

  Penny Pencher Fashion

And here is my shot of pulling this look together & making it my own.  I didn’t pull out my leather pants just yet because… well, they just don’t quite fit me since having Baby M.  But I am determined to get in those babies BEFORE Spring!  hahhhaha  Cross ya’ll fingers for your girl!  LOL   I decided to wear my faux leather panel pants that I also wore here.  You all might get tired of me in these pants because lately they have been my go to pants.  They are super duper comfy and chic and sexy.  I love the fit of them!!! 

pants – H&M / top – GAP maternity / utility vest DIY – ebay / bag – Nine West  / watch – Michael Kors / sunnies – A.B.S / shoes – KLS / necklace – c/o Orchids and Spice

I really loved this look because it also gave me the push to make my utility vest.  Yep, you heard me, DIYer! hahaha  I bought this initially as a jacket on ebay a while ago.  I wore it here as a jacket.  I thought, now would be the perfect time for me to turn it into a vest.  All I did was cut the sleeve and VOILA, its now a vest!!!

My hair is LITERALLY a wash n go.  I washed it the morning I wore this and just threw in some Mixed Chicks Leave-in-Conditioner and Miss Jessies Pillow Soft Curls.  It was that easy!!!!



 What do you think, Did I recreate this look?

Happy Wednesday loves.  I hope your week has been going good so far.  So sorry for the quick post, but I’m super busy with baby M tonight.  I am loving these faux leather paneled pants from H&M and guess how much they were…. $12.95!!  They also came in oxblood but they didn’t have my size in that color, so I just bought the black pair.  I can’t wait to break out my leather pants and skirts!! LOL  Let’s talk about these peep toe booties.  Can you believe I’ve had them for YEARS and never even worn them.  I think I bought  them from TJ Maxx, its been so long, I can’t remember!  This was my first time wearing them… the story of my closet.  I have tons of items still brand new with tags, never been worn.  A shame, I know!!!

I met up with Trina last week to go to a Bloomingdale’s Men’s Fashion Show hosted by Jezebel Magazine.  The menswear was HOT HOT HOT!!!!!  Two looks absolutely caught my eye because I knew the Hubs would be caught wearing them.  I could so see him in these outfits and he loves him some Cole Haan shoes!!
