At Fashion Week last February I was obsessing over cigarette pants (Irina Shabayeva’s were A-mazing) and leggings that featured leather paneling. I lusted over a pair of Alice + Olivia ones at Scoop that same week, but they cost no where near what I could justify spending on this sort of item.

Henceforth, when in New York a few weeks ago, I was school-girl silly excited to come across these alternatives from H&M. At just $19 they were a total steal and the compliments received on them has made it feel like they’ve paid for themselves (oh, if only!). They are so comfy and I can’t wait to wear over-sized sweaters with them and curl up under my favorite Cabela’s blanket and sit by the fireplace at home in Chicago!

p.s. these RL riding boots are my favorite boots of all time. So comfortable and classic. I’ve practically been living in them since Fall started to settle in. I always get asked about them so I set out to see if there was a similar style and Piperlime has a pair that are practically identical and also Lauren by Ralph Lauren.

  1. I need you to take me shopping at H&M. I always get discouraged – their stuff can be cute but sometimes the proportions are so bizarre. Mama doesn’t look good in a crop top.
