10 Rules for Effortless, Everyday Style

In this series, I share some simple tips for leveling up your daily looks.

Let me start by saying that if there was a top 10 list of my #legitmomstyle essentials, these faux leather leggings would be on it. They are comfortable, chic and practical. And they’re on sale right now all over the Internet! For sizing reference, I’m 5’4″ and typically a 26/27 in jeans and wear a medium in these—I recommend going up one size from your usual size as they run a bit small. I’ve gotten tons of feedback from you guys that you love these posts so I will continue to do them moving forward! If you already are sold on these, here are some quick links so you can go straight to shopping:

Bloomingdale’s (all sizes stocked) / Nordstrom (L and XL available) / Zappos (M and XL available)

As I’m sure most of you know by now, these posts contain affiliate links in them. When you use the links I share with you to make a purchase, I make a small commission (but it doesn’t cost you any extra money). It’s like giving me a tip for my styling services, except the companies you buy from are the ones paying for it. I always want to be open and honest with you about those things so I thought it was a good time to call that out! I never want you to buy things you don’t need, but if I help you find something your wardrobe is missing and can show you how to wear it in a way that you’re excited about, I really appreciate you using my links—it makes it possible for me to be a stay-at-home, work-at-home mom and it means the world to me.

Okay, okay…let’s try these babies on! You can see the try-on video here—otherwise, links to the items (or similar items) are all included below.
