The Great Leggings Hunt '11

After months of searching for leggings that were the perfect shade of dark grey, I finally hit pay dirt. The zipper detailing on the ankles is just a nice bonus.



They look black here, but they really are a dark grey. Really.

leggings: TJ Maxx / faux leather shorts: F21 / purse: H&M / cardigan: Gap / t-shirt: Gap / coat: BB Dakota / shoes: Steve Madden

Ohhh, I love the zipper detail. An exposed zipper always seals the deal for me.

Very nice! Leggings are my favorite item. They're versatile and can help many outfits.

I really need to find a decent pair of leggings asap... when did it become this difficult? I just cant find the right shade, or right shape around the waist... you'd think shopping for leggings was simple business, but no. Love your ones by the way,the zipper detail is pretty cute.

Great outfit!! Love the way you styled it. I think I have a crazy passion for zippers on the boots, I love to see that on leggings or jeans.
Love it both with the coat and with out the coat.
