Happy Monday!! We are getting so close to Christmas and I am still stunned at how fast it came up this year. I probably say that every year, but this time around it really did come up fast because there were only 4 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I think it's safe to say that most of us like a little more time between the two holidays. I know I do, because I need a week after Thanksgiving to recover from it (salads and smoothies anyone?). And that way there's more time to dedicate to Christmas with all of the baking, shopping, and holiday parties to host and attend. Right?

Speaking of holiday parties (or I guess now it's New Year's Eve parties), I wanted to show you an alternative to a dress for any parties or gatherings you may be attending. Dresses are definitely a great option to wear during any holiday event (so many lovely choices out there), but if you are wanting to try out something different or perhaps you're more comfortable in pants, then these faux leather leggings are the perfect piece to wear to your next fĂȘte. I dressed them up with an on-trend lace peplum top from Anthropologie. It's sold out online, but I suggest heading to your nearest Anthro to the sale section to score this top for under $60. A steal for a classic top that's super flattering.

I picked up these faux leather leggings from South Moon Under. I know what you're thinking. You're saying out loud that those look scary and uncomfortable to wear. But trust me when I say that they are absolutely flattering and comfortable, the most comfortable pair I've ever tried on. And you don't ever have to be worried about these pants stretching out and creating that awful pooch in the butt area. They.don't.stretch.out. Amazing, right? Yes, I think so to.

These leggings can also be worn in a more casual outfit too. I like the idea of wearing them with a pullover sweater long enough to cover my backside and some fun leopard booties. You could totally rock these leggings with moto boots, or over-the-knee boots (I will definitely be doing this sometime soon), or even flats. But these leopard booties were really screaming to me with the rest of the outfit. And the arrowhead necklace was the perfect finishing touch to complete the outfit.

Scored these babies for $21 at J.Crew the other day. Couldn't believe it. Seriously run, don't walk, to your nearest J.Crew to find these.
