Sweatpant Substitute

Since I knew from the moment I woke up that most all of yesterday was going to be spent in front of the computer, a no fuss uniform was in order.  Although sweats were a tempting option for such a day, a stretchy pair of black denim leggings paired with a silky kimono-style jacket proved to be the perfect combination.  Throwing on a pair of sky high wedges instead of basic ballet flats for a brief coffee break and breath of fresh air instantly gave this getup a going-out edge.

    I wish sweats were an option, but I agree black denim leggings are the best alternative and definitely my go to during the week. Luckily I work at a place that allows my flexible style.

      I’m very thankful to be able to wear whatever I want to “work” since my office primarily home based, but sometimes I really do miss the structure of getting dressed for the office. Luckily this blog helps to motivate me to get out of my sweats every morning! :)

    It is too easy to stay in comfy clothes when you know you will be indoors all day long…good for you for getting dolled up! :)

      Working from home seriously makes sweat/lounge pants way too tempting, especially now that it’s getting colder! Some mornings I really have to force myself to get dressed, but I always feel better once I do!

      I went through a phase a few years back where I was close to needing a legging intervention. It was bad, real bad. I haven’t really worn them since except in the form of jeggings or the faux leather, super shiny rock’n’roll style. I’m too worried about a relapse. ;)

      I’m so sorry you’ve been having trouble commenting! But this time it definitely worked, and I really appreciate your comment. I had been hoping to find an affordable vintage version that was similar to this one, but after some searching with no luck, I loved this one too much to pass up! :)

      Thank you! I seriously eyed this kimono jacket up every time I went into H&M for at least 2 months before I couldn’t resist anymore and had to make it mine. (It helped that I had a 25% off coupon)

    I love those wedges! I think I’ve said it to you before. Every time I see them I want them even more. Those red ones are obviously hot, but the cobalt are my favorite! <3

      I LOVE the cobalt color! The only reason I went red is because I already have enough blue suede shoes, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t drooling over them when trying to make my decision. ;)
