SAVE vs SPLURGE: VEGAN LEATHER PANTS

Happy Monday! Can you believe it's almost fall? The weather here in Atlanta definitely does not suggest such, seeing as how it's been hot-as-you-know-what these past few weeks! Where was all this sunshine when I wanted to sit by the pool every weekend in July?! Hmmmph. But I digress...

Speaking of fall and cooler temps, one item that's on my "must-have" list for the season is a pair of dark green leather-ish pants. A few weeks ago I posted a pair by 7 For All Mankind in a"How to Wear" post.

As cute as they are, I can't see myself paying almost $200 for anything inauthentic.

So of course I did a little investigating to find a less-expensive alternative. And here's what we have:

Now these faux leather pants for $10.00 at H&M are more my speed! The style is a little dressier than the skinny jean by 7FAM, but they do the trick just as well. I haven't quite figured out what I'll wear them with, but as soon as I do I'll post an OOTD!

What do you think about the leather trend for fall? Is it something you can see yourself wearing? Leave a comment for me below!
