Silver and Faux Leather

Just last week I shared my silver top (similar).  I dressed it up with my blue pleated skirt, take a look here. I mentioned needing to style it another way and this is where it pays to have friends.  Good friends with good taste.  Yes, definitely.  My sweet friend Mary of The Pouting Pensioner suggested I wear it with my faux leather leggings (similar, splurge). Turnabout is fair play, I boss her around all the time telling her what to wear and I even suggested she take a probiotic! So, I gave it a try and I’d say Mary was right!

I wore this on Friday night for date night with my husband. I should tell you our date nights are all kinds of fun. After a fabulous dinner we hit up Target because we’re wild and crazy like that! Actually we thought of going to a movie but the timing was weird and we wanted to get home to see Collin. He stayed at school until 10 working on his robot for a Robotics competition the next day. See what I mean? All kinds of glamour and fun over here at Chez Rohr!

We always head to the street when we take pictures and today was no different. My husband lovingly teases me and calls me a street walker. Because he’s a comedian. Except not really because I’m the funny one!

After I saw the pictures and gasped at how bad my hair looked we tried taking a few by the front door. Out of the wind tunnel that seems to follow me when we bring the camera out. You can see my sweet Sophie photobombing by the front door!

They turned out better because the sun actually poked out a little more. Natural light and less wind! #winning I wore m black boots with a slight heel, thank goodness they’re fairly comfortable on my finnicky feet. They’re old from Nine West but more of a sock boot which I like because of it’s slim profile. These are similar and under $45!

I wore a lace bralette (similar) under the top this time.  Here’s the deal with the lace bralettes if you’re bigger chested – wear your strapless bra with them.  Most bralettes offer no real support and when you’re not wearing the proper undergarments even the best outfit suffers.

My thanks to Mary for the outfit suggestion, I like the way it turned out and while I may have been a little overdressed for Target I was dressed fabulously well for dinner! I’d rather be overdressed than underdressed anyday by the way!

Yes, it definitely pays to have good blogging friends who know your wardrobe and can give you suggestions.

    Haha! I love your date night! Target sounds like a lot of fun to me, and you are right about the weird movie times. What’s up with the 9:40 time? Anywho, you are killing it in this look!

      Seriously this look took me way outta my comfort zone! I don’t know why, lol! If I went to the 9:40 movie I’d be asleep by the time the 20 minutes of previews were over! Target was surprisingly busy on a Friday night, guess it’s a date night spot for all the wild and crazy couples out there – ha!

    You are totally rocking this look Kellyann—especially for date night. And date nights that include Target are the best kind no matter what you’re wearing.

      Awww thanks Jodie! We used to always end up at Home Depot so Target is definitely a step up. I mean at least I’m not dodging saw dust, right?!

    Well that Mary was right! You look dynamite. I swear, our humor is so much alike, but you are much better about using yours in your writing. I’m verbally funny, but not on paper…oh well. Can’t win em’ all. Y’all date nights sound about like ours as far as ending in Target. Ours starts someplace like Panera though, so no need to get all gussied up. Did you know Nine West has declared bankruptcy? Boooo. Love the boots with leggings and it’s crazy how much more silver the top looks with the black. It had a bluish cast with the skirt. Anyway, you look beautiful as always!. XOXO

      I write just like I talk, which sorta drives Nolan crazy because he’s always trying to edit me but doesn’t want to take away my voice – good luck Chuck – ha! We went to Bonefish Grill (it’s a chain not sure if you’re familiar) kind of a nice-ish place but I was so surprised to see people wearing camo sweatshirts and jeans – just plain bad dressing in general. I know we live in a touristy state but seriously people, have a little self respect!
      I’m not a high maintenance wife at all so I’m good no matter where we go. I make very few demands of my husband and it’s usually me suggesting we knock things off our errand list. May not be the most romantic but it’s worked for us and sounds like it works for you my friend!
      Thanks for always being so sweet!
      Love ya,

    I just pinned this, because now I’m going to have to try wearing my silver top with my leather leggings! Thanks for the inspo!! I love your date night, sounds like my kind of date night. I hate when movies times are weird and you can’t make it work out!

      Yes, wear it! We’ll be twins, ha! Our date nights used to involve lots of trips to Home Depot so I feel a little better at Target, kind of a step up since they have a Starbucks!

    First of all, thank you for the bralette tip. I had no idea but it makes a lot of sense. They’re so cute, but I always thought impractical because, well, you know…

    I adore faux leather leggings. I got a cheap pair from Target, but I really want the Spanx pair. I’ve promised myself a pair as a treat for something (I don’t know what yet).

    And why do men always think they’re the funny ones? The Hubs always says the only person I amuse is my sister. Whatever. LOL I’m funny. You’re funny.

    And, last but not least, yes to Target dates!!!!

      Glad the bralette tip helped, we busty gals gotta stick together or life one another up – ha! See I crack myself up!
      My leggings were $18 from Nordstrom and I love them, the Spanx pair are supposed to be fabulous and worth every penny, treat yourself!!!
      Target dates are the best, a step up from our former Home Depot dates – those were definitely NOT my favorite!
      Hope you have a wonderful day my friend!

      Thanks Darlene! I am so glad Mary suggested this because even though it seems so obvious it would have never occurred to me to put these pieces together. I guess that’s what friends are for – even if we live across the pond from one another – ha!
      I appreciate your sweet comments, thank so much, you brought a smile to my face!

    Wowzers! You’re looking super hot with the top styled that way … and I’m a successful bosser!! Funny cos we were grocery shopping on Tuesday (when you may have be writing this post) and I said to TP “Kellyann tells me up,should be taking daily probiotics” … I didn’t get any cos the choice was just too confusing, but you’re getting to me , girl! Hugs, x.

      Hee, hee, hee guess we’re getting to each other! I like a friend who tells me the way it is and when I get fabulous fashion advice it’s the cherry on top! There are a lot of probiotics out there – my doctor told me to start with Culturelle and I did then I found the store brand that was essentially the same but a better price.
      You are so sweet my friend, keep the style advice coming!

    mary’s suggestion was spot on because this is soooo Fabulous! Love the silver top with your faux leather leggings. I don’t think I have ever tried wearing mine with tall boots, so I need to get on that. Have a great week, Kellyann!
