Leather Pants: Zara
Croc-Embossed Booties: Ann Taylor
The weather remains brutal, but the weatherman promises 50 degree weather by the weekend (that's NYC for you--you never quite know what to expect). These leather pants from Zara are quite reasonably priced, but I admit that the fit is somewhat problematic (you most likely will have to go up a size), and the legs are super tight. Despite that, they kept me warm. This piece from Miu Miu is one of my favorites--it adds some cheer on a blustery, somber day.
The booties are, no doubt, my cheapest pair of shoes as I bought them on sale at Ann Taylor. I like to have a few inexpensive pairs on hand on terrible weather days when slush and ice attack. That way, I don't feel bad if they are ruined.
