Dressing for the cold weather is a work in progress. I still am figuring it out over here...
|Sweater, H&M. Pants, H&M. Boots, Kurt Geiger (UK brand)|
H&M is hit or miss with me, but I've gotten some fantastic and really affordable pieces there this season.
|Black Cords, AG Jeans. Tank, Target. Sweater, H&M. Bracelet, Links of London.|
I never knew the ingenuity of corduroy pants* until I moved to Chicago. Corduroy pants are approximately 3x as warm as jeans. *Side note about cords....I was teased about wearing cords in 6th grade because someone said that when I wore them, my chubby thighs rubbed together and made a sound (enter impersonation of that person making a sound of corduroy fabric rubbing together). Needless to say, that made me deathly afraid and self-conscious about wearing the fabric for the past fifteen years. Childhood is really fun, right?
|Cashmere Turtle, TSE. Jeans, James Jeans. Boots, Tods.|
This week I had an impromptu girl date with a friend of a friend who I had never met. She was in Chicago for work, and in need of some female bonding....I obliged. Wine and girl talk? my fav.
When I got the call, I was in yoga pants at my desk with dirty hair and a tight deadline. This outfit is not exciting or anything special, but it is something I can throw on without thought and feel comfortable and confident regardless of the venue. Dry shampoo, spin pins, and a shmear of make up and I was out the door in less than 15 minutes.
Finally, the outfits that comprise the other 90% of my life (joking...kinda).
1. normal-ish outfit for Zumba
2. homemade shirt made from this recipe. I don't know where things went wrong, but the neckhole rides up big time and when I run, it becomes a noose and exposes my stomach. I solved the problem with a creative solution...my fitbit as a clip to my sports bra and a tuck into my pants. Pin that...it's the next big thing.
4. Weirder. (Until I arrive at FLYWHEEL and every second person is rocking the boots +workout capri look)
Favorite sweater style? I am loving the off the shoulder sweaters this year, but I have plenty of v-necks and cardis
Ridiculous looking workout wear that you love despite the sideways stares? Compression socks + running skirt.
