At some point I decided leggings were a Fall/Winter item only. I’m not sure why, probably because I associate them with layering for warmth, but the truth is, my leggings are actually really thin un-layered, and they make a number of shorter tunics and dresses more work appropriate*
Like this mark tunic which previously I only wore on weekends with pettipants, or during the colder months. Leggings worked perfectly, and I find that on my particular body shape, the fact that they stop above my ankles does no harm to the line of my body.
I wore my snazzy new super bargain jean jacket. All jean jackets are not created equal, and this one (and its sister friend in the light wash) is perfect for my office. Just enough to take the edge off the chill, but not so hot they stifle me. Plus I really like how it dresses things down a little…but not too much. Friday my boss and I went shopping on our lunch break** and she picked up the same jacket! But I bet she only wears it on Fridays.
Still love these shoes. I’m wearing them nonstop and have already begun to worry about the inevitable time coming when they will have worn out and I will have to let them go. Crazy or the mark of a truly loved item?
*In my situation. I realize I am in a pretty lenient dress code situation, I’m glad of that and take full advantage of it.
**I Bought Pants. Like normal pants. Or almost normal. They are cropped, but they are NOT skinny fit. Tapered, but not skinny. I was excited. They were on super sale at Kohl’s and I spent the last little bit of money I had made selling things to get a couple pair. More on this tomorrow.
