Bits and Pieces: Lounge Pants

| , , , , , ,

 photo chambraycroptop.jpg photo silkjoggingpants1.jpg photo silkjoggingpants3.jpg photo silkjoggingpants.jpg photo silkjoggingpants2.jpg Clearly comfort is winning in my wardrobe these past few weeks. First it was boyfriend jeans, now lounge pants. Lounge pants that you can wear outside of your actual lounge – brilliant. I have been eying this style of pants for a long time and wasn’t sure I would really like them once on. Update: I really like them once on. In fact, I LOVE them. So comfortable yet quite stylish if you ask me (you didn’t but it’s my blog so I ask and answer questions). And while I am on the fence about the crop top trend, I felt the high waist needed something shorter on top rather than longer. So I tied up my chambray top and it was the perfect complement. I know mixing patterns is a mystery for many, but I find that shoes and purses are the best way to mix without going overboard. Floral on my feet and leopard in my hands is the perfect combination. Oh and one more thing – you need this Clare Vivier leopard clutch. Not too big and not too small, I fear for everyone around me for how often they will see me wear it. Guess I’ll go ahead and apologize now.

Bits and Pieces: The Ease Of A Sweater Dress

| , , , , , ,

What I miss most about the warmer weather is the ease that comes with getting dressed.  Throw on a cute dress, sandals, grab a clutch and you are out the door.  Bonus if you throw on a bangle or cute cocktail ring.  But winter requires so much more effort – and often so many more layers.  I can’t believe this is one of the first times I am wearing a sweater dress on the blog because I own a ton of them.  Main reason – ease.  I love fashion as much as the next gal but to be honest, if an outfit gets too fussy, or has too many pieces/parts/layers I just lose interest.  I admire the girls from afar that layer like a champ, wear 13,000 pieces and manage to look chic.  But as you already know, I am a bit more pared down.  Frankly, I think it’s so I can spend more time doing my makeup, but that’s just a theory.  I could be wrong. (I’m not)

I have a confession – I am typically not a bow fan. While I consider my style feminine, I see bows as more “girly” and that isn’t
