Hat:  California Adventure gift shop
Shirt:  Target
Vest:  Old Navy, thrifted
Jean:  c/o Lee Jeans
Suspenders:  Husband's closet
Shoes:  Macy's
Until a couple years ago, I was not aware that Lee Jeans manufactured anything pertaining to my size, age group, or style preference.  Then during one random trip to Kohl's, I spotted some cute, low-rise, cuffed capri's in Petite.  And I've thought much better of Lee Jeans ever since.

But I still had some concerns when Lee sent me a few styles to try.  These black skinnies are definitely the best fit, but are closer to a slim-straight leg than a skinny.  Based my experience, I would guess that all styles run a bit large as well.  I like the rise - not too low - and the booty is not "mom jean-ish" at all.

I don't know why, but I find black pants so very boring.  I never know how to wear them without looking like a corporate casual drone.  Enter lots of layers, man-ish accessories, and leopard heels.  A little ridiculous, but fun.

Thanks for voting for me yesterday!  Um...would you mind voting again today?  I submitted my photo late in the game, and I'm pretty far behind.  Don't make me Miles beg.  Thanks, friends.

What are the odds that we both posted pics of suspenders today? Slim, I'd say, which is why we are blogging buddies. Love it.

Black jeans are one of my favorite things to style, haha. So versatile! But this whole outfit is great, I love the suspenders with the animal print heels :)
