Boho Cognac and Wine - Leather Pants!

Yes, leather pants! I always get excited about wearing them. This calls for exclamation points! 
...and maybe a little less coffee? Nah, it's Monday - can you really overdo the coffee on a Monday?

  • Blouse - Ralph Lauren, thrifted; purchased here for $6.00
  • Pants - Gap, thrifted; last seen here in March with some merlot
  • Shoes - Hilary Radley, thrifted; last worn here in January for a VP visit

"Ignoring your posturing, woman."
I was going for a rock & roll bohemian look - yes? No? I wore this new-to-me blouse over a cami (boobs ahoy!), then layered on the jewelry.
Sure, why not wear leather pants to work? I do it all the time!

The stuff:
I like how the very staid look of these shoes helps tone down any craziness from the leather pants.

Boho bling:
I had another pinky ring on but forgot to photograph it. The bracelets were a waste - they just disappeared under the sleeve cuffs.

  • Belt - Club Monaco
  • Copper/bead necklace and crystal earrings - Plum
  • Choker - vintage 70s, Mom's (it's made of amber and sandalwood)
  • Copper cuff - Matisse by Renoir, vintage 60s, vintage fair
  • Leather cuff - thrifted
  • Copper ring - vintage fair
  • Wood ring - Dots
  • Brass ring (not shown) - P. Sarpaneva, vintage 70s, vintage fair

L and I jammed on going to the gym - we're staying home and snuggling under blanket with Vizzini (yes, it's raining again).


  1. Piles of bling. Yes. That's proper!
    Love the boho rocker vibe. Rain tends to dampen the best intentions.

  2. Leather pants for the office, and everywhere - these are timeless/boho/cool and totally you. xox


  3. Leather pants! Worthy of exclamation points!!

  4. I absolutely love this look! I love any version of a monochrome look and this is no exception. I love the different styles and textures, looks gorgeous!


  5. These are fab! I had a pair way back when, many moons ago before I had children and seeing these now am green with envy. Love the fact you played them down with those shoes - great move! (Did you notice I followed your lead, Sheila, and added lots of exclaimation marks too!)

  6. Love the warm colours in this outfit - and of course the leather trousers! xxx

  7. Great hue…
    I hope to someday come across a pair of leather trousers that fit me really well and that i can pull off and wear like you.

  8. You look great in leather, dear Shelia! This outfit is drop dead cool and so gorgeously autumnal, to boot.
