Reader Style: Sweatpants on Date Night! (#nailedit)



Remember a couple of weeks ago, when we chatted about Refinery 29's claim that one could successfully wear sweatpants on date night?  Well. Meet P.  She's an attorney turned stay-at-home-mom to a two and a half year old son, and she just rocked sweatpants on a recent date night.  P wrote:

"I wanted to share a photo of my date night outfit with my new (beloved) Splendid sweatpants. I have been wearing them in both the black & the grey a TON, with t shirts and flats and even sockless sneakers (especially to/from the gym), but I think they also work with heels for a night out. Bonus: I felt like I was wearing pajamas! (I basically was.)"




Soft blazer: Agnes b., almost 10 y.o. and still my favorite clothing item ever. (S's Note:  found a fab option in comfy ponte

Pants: Splendid

Shoes: Jimmy Choo, also almost 10 y.o. (S's Note:  Oooo….or maybe these?  They're no Choo, but under $100)

Tee:  Madewell

Necklace: Stella & Dot Tessa Necklace 

Watch: Casio


I mean seriously wow.  P, I love everything you've got goin' on here (and talk about the power of a well-placed necklace.  Sheesh.  You managed to make both sweatpants and a tee date-night worthy.)  LOVE it.  On a side note, I'm kinda obsessed with your Casio watch to wear with, uh, everything this summer. 

Thank you SO much for the pics and inspiration!

    I LOVE this look! You look fabulous; so happy you sent the photo. I remember the post, and P’s comment, but couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to pull that off- now I do. Thank you!! xo

    So comfy I couldn’t believe it! I just had to wear heels to add some discomfort in there.

    I NEED these pants but they only have one size and color option available now. Bummer :-/
    Any other suggestions?

    Love comfort on date night. However, I could not afford to go on said date if I spent that much on one pair of sweatpants. Any budget option suggestions?

    I hear ya, I struggled with buying these sweats, cause they are just SWEATS, though I’m the kind of person who has a tiny closet full of stuff that I wear to death (hence my 10 y.o. items!) so I don’t second guess myself too much.
    I haven’t seen some of the Aerie ones in person, but they, too, look promising: — it all depends on the fabric and how thin/drapey it is, I think. That said, I had a few of their t-shirts that I liked, but didn’t last long until they wore out, so that may happen, too. But still worth investigating. Report back with any intel!

    Did you check other sites? I got mine at an actual store, maybe one near you has them?

    Totally just went and purchased that Casio watch on amazon for $15 – perfect for the spring & summer. Love the sweatpants look too – so comfy and chic! 🙂
