I believe that leggings are not, and never should, be worn as pants. I like to pretend like I know what's going on in the fashion world, just like a million other 20 something girls.
Right now, I am absolutely obsessed with my Jimmy Choo boots. I wear them with skinny jeans and tights and a dress. This fantastic gold clutch from Moda pairs really well with the blue dress. Pops of color and pops of gold can spruce up any outfit.
