unexpected basics



LC Lauren Conrad pleated faux-leather shorts (Kohl’s sale) | Ralph Lauren striped cardi | Chico’s tank | Jessica Simpson Landen pumps | JustFab tote bag


Never did I ever think I’d fall so deeply in love with a pair of pleather shorts. I’ve worn these babies no less than 10 times since buying them the weekend before Thanksgiving (actually, getting them for free with Kohl’s cash; #winning). In fact — beginning on Thanksgiving Day — I shamelessly donned them three days in a row. They just may be one of the most versatile things in my closet right now. And they lighten the disappointment that it’s December and I’m bare-legged and sweating in my black twinset cardigan.

Speaking of legs, one of you has a pair of ASSETS by Sarah Blakely Super Shaper Tights courtesy of jcpenney with your name on ’em…

Katie, you forgot to leave me a way to contact you! Oops! Please shoot me an email by Friday with your shipping information. If I don’t hear from you, we’ll have to draw another winner. Thanks for entering everyone!

  1. I liked those when I saw them but didn’t buy because I thought they would look horrid on me…they look so cute on you! I love LC’s line.


  2. This entry is a wonderful reminder of why I need to move back to Florida, so I can also wear shorts with bear legs in December :-) Those shorts are lovely. I have to check my local Kohl’s. Lovely outfit, as always. Btw, I ended up finding the utilitarian Decree jacket at JCP. $19.99 – $15 off coupon = $4.99 #winning!


  3. I love the shorts!! Almost got them but figured I wouldn’t find enough to wear them with, now I’m regretting that decision! Got some other Lauren Conrad things instead and I totally went back with my Kohl’s cash too :)


  4. I bought the SAME shorts and I am so obsessed as well, but haven’t had the chance to wear them yet!!


  5. I am currently on a shopping ban. But . . . I have been wanting leather shorts forever and I have some Kohl’s cash from Christmas shopping. This should be allowed no? I LOVE these shorts! You look great!


  6. Oh, I love those shorts- what a great pick! I’ve been on the hunt for a neutral pair of dressy-type shorts to wear over tights. Unfortunately our weather here isn’t warm enough for bare legs! lol
