Leggings and Flats

Leather leggings are super cool

I’m always surprised and how much I wear flats and leggings, it’s such a 80s thing. I feel almost ashamed to wear this combo because sometimes I think it dates me. Flats and leggings are an easy outfit to wear, they’re comfortable, generally better than a pair of sweatpants and if you switch out the flats for a pair of heels at the end of the day, they can go out at night. There aren’t many outfits that fit the comfort bill and can still go out at night if needed.


Today’s outfit, if the weather cooperates will be a pair of black leggings, a black camisole and a baby blue silk tunic. I will get to wear my black cropped leather jacket which is why I’m leaning towards the leggings today. If the weather is a little cool, I’ll probably wear my Frye boots, if things are pleasant, I’ll go with the black ballet flats.  Both footwear options will be kind to my tired feet.


Comfy enough for lounging, yet you can answer the door
It’s the end of the week and I’m exhausted. I really want a day of just lounging around in a pair of sweatpants doing nothing more strenuous than getting Ben and Jerry’s from the freezer, but I don’t see that happening. There is always too much to do, to many errands to run and besides, I think I’m out of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.


So if I can’t lounge around in sweats, I’m going for the next best thing. A pair of comfy stretchy leggings and a loose tunic, if I have to run out on a moment’s notice I think it’s best to try and look presentable. There is nothing worse than going to Starbucks and running into someone you haven’t seen in eons and you’re wearing a pair of sweats. When you can’t dazzle at least you can blend into the scenery comfortably.
You won't be mortified if a long lost friend see you at Starbucks in this outfit
