Style Saturday | Pleather & Plaid

Hey Beauties!

On my journey of self acceptance I am constantly trying to venture outside of my fashion comfort zone and experiment with styles and pieces I wouldn't otherwise wear. I have tried outfits that have made me feel beautiful and of course I have tried a few that just weren't right but along the way I have learnt to better accept and understand my body. I am a curvy girl, I have hips and a butt and I have never been comfortable in pants and jeans - anything with structure - that made me feel confined because lets be honest most pants are not made with a booty in mind. I am slowly learning to be okay with showing off my assets and these "leather" leggings are a big step in that direction. There is nothing quite like a leather pant and I have had my eyes on a pair for the longest time but I knew if I wanted to take part in the trend I needed to find a pair that were more suited to a fuller figure. These leggings from Suzy Shier were the perfect solution, they have the look of leather without the difficult fit of a pant. I am really happy that I found the right pair for me it helps to remind me that I can make anything work if I stick to it.

  4. Gorgeous, Courtney! The plaid and the pleather look awesome together!

  5. Such a fantastic endeavour to go outside your comfort zone and find pieces that make you feel fabulous :) Love those leather leggings on you :)


  6. You look fabulous!! This is one of my favorite combinations. I use to be very thin but gained a lot of weight due to some health problems. It definitely is all about accepting your body and trying all different types of fashion. I'm the exact opposite: I'm just starting to find skirts and dresses. Looking forward to checking out your blog for inspiration!! Glad I found you on Instagram:)
