Flower Challenge Day 5

Black Blazer- Le Chateau (7+ years old)
Printed Tunic Shirt- Sirens
Black Leggings- DIY Leggings Self Made
Yellow Shoes- Joe Fresh
Black Belt- Winners

I will admit today I really did NOT feel like wearing anything floral...probably because yesturday I picked up a shirt and blazer that I absolutly love but there is no way either would look good with anything I will most likely be wearing one of them on Monday.  After staring at my closet for quite some time I finally settled on this top.  I originally was planning on wearing it with skinny jeans..but desided to be brave and wear leggings instead.  This is the first time I have ever worn leggings as pants...I believe the only time wearing leggings as pants is ok is when whatever you're wearing on top covers your this top is safe.  I would really hate for it to look like I forgot to put on the bottom half of my outfit.  I also think it's a good idea to make sure that you're wearing thick enough leggings when wearing them like this..there are quite a few leggings out there that are a tad see onto the blazer I'm's been years since I've worn it..the biggest reason being the awkward length...I had it on my hemming list..but now I'm thinking that won't be neccessary.  With this outfit I think the length of it is perfect...but when I try to wear it with regular pants it tends to look strange.  I'd love to know what everyone thinks of the length of my jacket...and/or the issue of wearing pants as leggings, so be sure to leave me a comment!!

I personally think you can get away with the leggings as pants. I do however agree that the top should cover your butt, otherwise your leggings become spandex... ewww.. I think the jacket is a good legnth for this outfit, but I could see how it would be funny looking with jeans. You should add some secret snaps on the inside so that you can hem it into a shorter jacket for jeans, and then unsnap it for an outfit like this, then its like you have two jackets instead of one! Haha... I have no idea if its possible, but it sounds like a good idea!

So, I'm also agreeing that tights need to be worn with a longer top, otherwise TMI! Love this blazer, think it looks wonderful on you.
