I finally own some faux leather leggings again! I had a very good pair that fitted so perfectly, and the quality was beautiful. But it was really too ugly to wear any longer, so many times I had worn it. And it was quite a thing to find a good replacement. A lot of them looked like plastic, or they were too low in the waist. But this one is perfect.
I will never wear my faux leather leggings like this again!
Its only honest to say that I have styled these faux leather leggings today as I will never wear it again. Just wanted to try out what it would be like if I were to wear something short on these leggings. And what would it be like to wear boots over the leggings. No! That is clearly not for me. If I wear faux leather leggings, I would like to wear something that goes beyond my crotch. And boots over leggings or pants? No, it just doesn’t feel good to me. This is not my style.
But the faux leather leggings are good
Then why do I show it? Well because I just tried something and I don’t think it worked. That is also allowed! It’s not that every day I put on a outfit and think: Yes, this is a fabulous look! No no, I too make mistakes…..lol. But the items separately are great. I already have the boots in black and the quality is so beautiful. And the color is really gorgeous. It looks like the leafs at the end of autumn, that deep warm red brown color! I have had the blouse for months, but have not worn it at all. Again it are the colors that are so attractive to me. And the cardigan is simply a wonderful simple cardigan. The necklace has brown stones and vintage pink, which I also have on my nails. You know, matchy matchy!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest.
I would love it if you could follow me on Instagram!

You look great in this outfit, Nancy. Like the leggings tucked inside the boots with the cardigan. Great autumn outfit from day to night
Thank you very much!
I really like the look, very chic also really love faux leggings , my mother in law just baught me two new pair!! Thanks for linkup Nancy.
Oh I want a mother in law like that! Thanks love!
So sleek and fantastic Nancy. You look super!
Thank you very much Andrea!
Nancy, you look awesome! I’m not at all modest, but I understand your feelings; I prefer to wear tunics with leggings. I just feel too exposed with a short top and leggings. I love the leggings tucked into the boots. Lovely cardigan!
Also, I think it’s awesome that you posted this outfit despite vowing to never wear it again.
Yes well that is real life too! Thank you very much for your lovely comment!
Yes I like you show it Nancy. I have several style I don’t like so much too. This leggings are great Nancy. You can style it in an other way. I wish you a wonderful weekend!
Thanks Tina, I love to wear them with a tunic!
I totally love the leggings!!!
It’s beyond me why you wouldn’t wear those faux leathers like this again Nancy. I think the whole look is fabulous on you. xx
Thank you very much Laurie.
I completely agree with Laurie. This outfit simply rocks Nancy!
Haha, thanks love!
I know what you mean about finding a good replacement pair, mine are getting old and I’m on the fence about a new pair! You wear these so well Nancy!
Well done you for showing a look that is nor really you. I am not a fan of leggings with shorter tops . i will be keen to see how you style them in a way that you prefer. Many thanks for hosting Nancy.
Nancy, I love the concept behind this post of sharing something that you don’t like so much. Jeff just said to me the other day that we fashion bloggers should start showing what we “really wear”…in reference to me in my sweatpants and bathrobe…all the time! Hahaha. Even though this may not be your style, you look fabulous in these sexy leggings. And those boots are so fantastic! The color is absolutely brilliant! I look forward to seeing the other ways you will style these pieces!
Oh you will see soon! Haha, I don’t think you all want to see what I am wearing in the evening on the couch!
I actually do not think this was a mistake! You rock the leggings and crop top mix Nancy. I appreciate you sharing even though you don’t like it. Thanks for the link up!
You wear this look much better Kathrine!
You look wonderful in your faux leather leggings and the cropped top is flattering on you!
I also won’t wear short tops because I’m not skinny with a flat tummy anymore so I tend to prefer longer shirts.
You’re lovely even if you think you’re wearing a mistake!
Thank you very much Robin!
This is a fun outfit! I like tucking my jeans into boots so I don’t think this was a miss, I think the leggings work well with the boots! 🙂
Thank you for the link up!
Hope that your week has been good and you have a nice weekend ahead of you! There’s a lot of smoke again around here but we are safe from the bushfires.
Thanks Mica, have a good weekend!
I’m glad you still shared this outfit because I love it on you! You look fabulous!

Oh thank you very much, that is very kind of you Jill!
I think your outfit looks great. Love the boots. But I know what you mean about a shorter top over leggings. I do prefer longer tops over leggings myself. The proportions seem off to me when a top stops right at my hip area. It doesn’t work for my shape. Your black faux leather leggings remind me that I’ve been wanting a pair for a while now. Must continue my search for the perfect ones! Thanks for choosing my outfit as your fav. That was so very kind of you!
It is totally my pleasure!
Dear Nancy. I personally think this outfit is a stunning one. The colour scheme makes the outfit just perfect for fall and although I do agree with you that longer tops will ad some comfort, you can easily get away with wearing short tops too so I see. The whole outfit rocks and is classy as well. Styling job well done dear! Love, Lieske
Thank you very much Lieske! I do love the colors together!
I know what you mean about outfits not coming together the way you think they will! Still great pieces that I know you’ll get styled to perfection!
I really like the way you’re wearing your leather leggings in this post Nancy – please do wear them like this again!!!
I have worn mine with mountain boots – see my last fashion post on http://www.FunkyForty.com.
Have a fabulous Friday
No not like this Yvonne, but I will wear them again! Thanks!!
The leggings look fabulous! But I know what you mean about “covering your crotch” I so agree, I prefer something longer in front, as well as the back, when I wear leggings too.
Yes that feels so much better doesn’t it!
You look great in leather leggings. I have a few pairs, but don’t wear them often. I want to try the Spanx ones but I dont like compression., so well see! Those cognac boots are gorgeous! I think it is fun to try new things even just to try!
Yes I think so too, on the trying part. Because sometimes it turns out pretty good!And sometimes not so!
Loving the little button details on your cardigan. Those little additions really add polish to the look. You are totally rockin’ those coated pants. I’m envious you can pull those off – even though you said they are not for you. I’m afraid my hips and rear can’t handle the attention. Maybe if I wore them over a tunic length top….. Your necklace really complements the outfit so well. The colors bring out the best and pull the whole thing together. Stellar outfit. Great job trying something outside your comfort zone and nailing it! Happy Friday Nancy!
Thank you very much Shannon, that is very kind of you! Have a great weekend!
Fabulous outfit Nancy. I have a pair of faux leather pants which I bought from Zara. Like you I searched for a pair which looked like the real deal. I love to wear them. This is my kind of outfit. I love leather pants so much so, I’ve been looking at the real leather ones. I have a real leather pair which are very, very old but are way too small now!! I may treat myself in the January sales – the price would have to be right though as they are so expensive. Don’t stop wearing them as they look fabulous on you.
Thanks Alison! I love to wear them but then styled in a different way!
I love that legging! I normally do not like them to plastic! But this one really is like leather!
Yes it is. Thanks Sonja!
Nancy, as everyone has said, this outfit looks good on you! But you have to feel good in it, so I totally get what you mean. I am pretty selective about how to style my faux leather leggings, too. They do sort of show everything! Lol!
Have a great weekend,
Haha, yes that’s why I feel a bit exposed!
I think the outfit looks great on you as it is, but the main thing is that you feel great wearing it! Loving those fabulous boots! xxx
Yes I love those boots too, I also have them in black. They are super simple but such a fine quality!
Love that cardigan! What a great look!
I just ordered a pair of faux leather joggers. It’s hard to find a pair that doesn’t look fake and cheap, but they’re much more affordable than the real thing!

Yes and I don’t want the real thing anyway.
I love the color combination, even if the outfit isn’t a fave!
Yes I love the color combination too. Thanks Liz!
I have to say I like this look. You may not think it’s you because you never wear things this way, but it looks very modern and chic.
Do you really think so? I can’t see it. But I never liked this look, even not so when it was trendy in my teens.
I love the contrast between your leggings and boots! You look fantastic!
Thank you very much Laura!
These look great Nancy. I have some lovely ones but they are a little bit tight at the minute. Hopefully, after Christmas I can work hard to make them comfy again.
Thanks so much for sharing your post with us at Welcome To The Weekend Blog Hop. Have a great weekend and we hope to see you on Monday for our next linky.
Haha, everything starts again after Christmas!
Ha! So true 😉
Thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays 🙂
Hooray to you Nancy for still showing an outfit you are not totally happy with. True fashion blogger you are! However the color mix is really well done. And you got killer legs. The leggings show them off just right!!! Wear those pants more often :)))
Such a relieve you went first with that posst because I got a similar coming up in which there will be the most dreadful look…one of those that make you go: What was I thinking? Well, nada apparently 😉
Fijn weekend from chilly Frankfurt. Staying on the sofa this bum I am telling you…xo Sabina
Haha, I am wearing them a lot now but totally different. Yes it’s cold here too and I hate it so much! Have a great start of the week dearest Sabina!
Your outfit looks great on you… you look so lovely…❤️
Thank you very much!
I picked a pair of faux leather leggings recently and I have been wearing them like crazy!!! Love love love!!!
I know what you mean, I wear mine a lot ! Thanks love!
I think it looks nice Nancy, but I get you. I also appreciate that you share something you personally didn’t love! It’s best to keep it real! I still haven’t ordered a pair of faux leather leggings. maybe it’s time.
You really should, they are so cool and so comfortable!
I think it is always good to figure out what work and doesn’t work for oneself! You got to be comfortable and like the way it works.
Yes otherwise you don’t feel confident!
I’m totally with you on wanting to wear a longer top with leggings – even if they’re faux leather ones. I like seeing “failed looks” too, because maybe it will prevent somebody else from buying something they thought might work together. Your look definitely has some great structure – you only have to change a piece or two and it’s a great look. And I do love the burgundy and black together. And it’s made me realize that I really would love some faux leather pants!
I’m sorry that I’m just now getting back to you and I’m hoping somebody else already did. We’ve had a few problems with our server passing the online contacts to our e-mails. If you would still like a quote, please let me know and I’ll get one to you quickly. Just as a quick quote, our VibeCore comes with cable to allow it to core to 30m and has taken core samples up to 9m. in length. Its cost is $10,950. That comes in a shipping crate and with a spares toolkit. We do have quite a few options available too. I’ll also be happy to forward the operator’s manual to you. Meanwhile, I’ve attached a write-up about the VibeCore and another about safe lifting.
Let me know how I can be of help.
Wow! Can I un-do that? I just sent something to someone and copied it to send the same thing to somebody else. Then I pasted what I thought was going to be my blog’s address and this is what came up. And I missed all of that other stuff. Really – I haven’t even had any caffeine this afternoon. Maybe I need some! LOL!!!
Hahaha, yes you need coffee!
I’m with you on this, in principle, Nancy. I will never wear leggings like pants – I need that crotch area covered! However, I do like the faux leather leggings with boots, and this outfit does look great on you. I like that you showcased an outfit that you didn’t like – brave girl!
Haha, thanks Sheila!
I have very mixed feelings about faux leather leggings for myself. I bought some at Loft last year and they were too loose but I wore them once or twice anyway. I just didn’t feel very confident in them. Now they are way too big so I gave them away. But I am debating whether to get another pair. Would like to try the Spanx brand but they are so expensive. Will I wear them enough to spend that money?
I like your outfit and think the fit on your leggings is very flattering. Your boots look great over the leggings, in my opinion. Bravo for trying something outside your comfort zone.
Could you try a cheaper one to find out if it is something for you?
Gorgeous look and so classy !! Love the color of your boots and perfect with the leggings 🙂
