Outside The Box:

Sometimes it’s the unexpected that really looks the best together.  This is one of those outfits that’s loosely based on my favorite faux leather leggings mixed with a yummy mohair sweater and a pair of my most prized patent heels.  Mary Janes can seem a little buttoned-up, or even formal, but I toned it down by pairing it with pants and a sweater.  As we’re …
