You know when it’s just one of “those” days? For me…”thooooose” days happen way more often than normal days, so la de daaaa. Leggings to the rescue!
You might remember my old post on Leggings as Pants (oh, yes). Well, here I am again to wax poetic about…LEGGINGS, my friends.
Not just any leggings, because yeh…sure. A basic pair of black leggings are fine, but they’re nothing to get excited about. Moto leggings is what I am talking about. Yep, I know. As if we all needed another reason to pretend leggings are acceptable for every day wear outside of the house. They have saved me on many occasions, though, when I have realized not a thread of denim is clean and I am late for pick-up. Many…many occasions. In fact, I’m sure the other moms at my son’s preschool think it’s gotta be one of the only articles of clothing I own.
Hey, it’s me…little old fashion blogger, Cams!
I do try, but crap. Raising three kids is honestly like being a zookeeper (with no other zoo people to help wrangle the beasts). Some days I grab those moto leggings and I work those leggings LIKE A MOTHER BLEEPING BOSS LADY.
You do what ya gotta.
Also, ummm. Neoprene sneakers? Hellooooo. I needed you and then there you were. You are the perfect addition to my lazy (but cool!) mom outfit.
Seriously. They are really rad…and comfy, too. I highly recommend giving them a go.
moto leggings + neoprene sneaks outfit details
sweater: Longline Cardigan (comes in several colors) – if you saw my other recent post, you saw this cardigan styled with a bit more dressy of an ensemble. It’s my favorite thing right now, to grab and go. It is one size fits all…which is weird. Not my favorite thing when clothing is sized this way, but it’s worth a try. It’s cozy and the chunky and cute.
top: Free People Split Back Turtleneck (TTS) – a great top for everyday. I usually wear it with my favorite worn-in denim and booties.
leggings: BP. moto leggings (TTS & currently on sale for $26!) – my FAVORITES for everyday. They also come in black.
sneaks: Steve Madden Fashion Sneakers (TTS) – something a little different from the normal athletic sneakers. This one is more for real (not working out) outfits. I love them! They also come in a few different colors, which are all equally as cool.
Note: If I could make only one adjustment to this whole outfit it would be my top – it was a tad too short. I thought it was longer…or something? When I was getting dressed (in a hurry, as usual) that morning I just said whatever, it’s totally long enough and moved on. NOPE. In my defense, I thought it was more of a tunic style and if it weren’t for my being 10 feet tall, it would have covered my nether regions a bit better. In fact, I think I remember S telling me that it hit her right above her knees. Her KNEES. Anyways, I should have worn this long, tunic top instead, but ya know. It probably wasn’t clean and…
Ya gotta do what ya gotta do. amiright?
