Phoning it In

Phoning it In
What I’m Wearing // VAUTE COUTURE Coat // HANES Men’s Tee // AMERICAN APPAREL Winter Leggings // CORNELIA GUEST Bag // CONVERSE Sneakers // NYC STREET VENDOR Beanie // GIFTED Scarf

I’m totally phoning it in on this post.  First off, I was so lazy this weekend this is what I wore out in public when I had to leave the house.  Leggings, tee, sneakers, scarf (thank you Gina!), beanie.  Done.  If I had a choice, I wouldn’t have left the house at all.  I’m that lazy lately.  I took a five hour nap on Sunday I was so tired.

Second I really wanted to make sure I had a post up today but am having the worst day at work ever.  So therefore I’m not really in a writing, telling mood.

But hey, at least there’s an outfit post!

Leggings and Boots

1 Nov

Lazy Leopard
What I’m Wearing / Levi’s Jacket (via Crossroads Trading Co) / Alloy Sweater / Tightsplease Leggings (c/o) / JustFab Keira Moto Boots (c/o) / Cornelia Guest Handbag

All I’ve been wearing lately is leggings and boots.  It seems I get lazier and lazier as I get deeper into my 30′s.  This morning when I was getting ready for work (yes,  I’m even wearing them to work, super lazy) I near had a panic attack when I saw I was down to my last clean pair of leggings for the week.

Tightsplease had contacted me not too long ago and generously offered me my pick of an item from their store to check out. Didn’t take long at all for me to find these leopard paneled leggings on their website and before I knew it they we’re here for me to try on. Perfect choice for me considering they’re leggings plus leopard, which equals awesome.

Another new acquisition I’ve been wearing non-stop are these moto boots from JustFab. I’ve been wearing heels so often the flat boots are a welcome break.

I met the JustFab team at the LuckyFABB event this past September and I was stoked all their products are coincidentally vegan. Not only are they vegan, they’re chic and inexpensive too. Since getting these boots they gifted me with I’ve bought another pair of knee-high wedge boots and a hot leopard and yellow clutch I can’t wait to use.  Those boots go perfect with leggings as well, which means no one will see me in normal clothing while in public for quite some time.

What are some of your new favorite “lazy day” wear acquisitions?

Funday

Puppy Bomb

{What I’m Wearing: Shirt: H&M (thrifted); Moto Leggings: My Bajee Collection}

After taking last week off from blogging and other social engagements, I seem to have finally caught back up and gained control of my life again.  I re-prioritized and set goals for myself both professionally and personally for the next three months, and also over the weekend finally took care of a bunch of household chores I’ve been putting off.  It feels so amazing to check to-do’s off my list!

I’ve decided for the next few months I’m going to try a new strategy to my weekends.  I’m hoping to keep one day, usually a Saturday specifically to do chores and knock off a few tasks to complete long-term projects.    The other day, most likely Sunday, will be completely free to either relax or do something fun!  That way I’m still getting my much-needed downtime without sacrificing any household productivity.

So after getting all my Saturday to-do’s accomplished, I took to the “corner” (what I refer to the corner chaise of my couch) to sit down and read my Kindle.  One of my three-month goals is to have read three books.  I couldn’t get more than a page in without Portia barging in on me, wanting to play fetch or cuddle!

Needless to say, cuddling with Portia and a Real Housewives of New York City marathon wound up taking priority over reading.  But that’s what my Sunday “Funday” is for, whatever I feel like doing at that moment.

How did you spend your weekend?

Vegan Versions / Leather Leggings

30 Nov

There is something about leather leggings that is so chic to me. I love how they have the comfort of a standard legging, but make even a sweatshirt and chucks look super polished and put together.

Most leather leggings are really expensive, but nowadays there are so many great vegan ones on the market that are much less expensive as well as cruelty free. Here’s a few of my picks. I was fortunate enough to pick up the Express pair, albeit a size too large at a local thrift store.

 

Black Denim Vegan Faux Leather Leggings $84.00

Express (Minus the) Leather Legging $59.90

Romeo & Juliette Couture $44.99

Typical New Yorker

I actually took these photos a few weeks ago and never got around to posting them.  I threw this together in a hurry on a Saturday morning.  I realized I had overslept and I was running late to my CSA driver shift.  In order to participate in our local CSA, each member has to volunteer three times over the course of the season.  You have to either volunteer handing out the farm shares or if you have a car, drive the unclaimed shares to the local soup kitchen.

I was driving this morning and didn’t want to be late.  I’ve learned that when you’re in a rush with no time to think, an all black ensemble is the way to go.  Well, technically I’m wearing gray leggings here but you catch my drift.  Wearing all black is such a typical, New Yorker look and considering we’re always in such a rush, I now understand why.  It looks great every time.

This particular outfit was ridiculously comfortable.  It was basically like wearing a sweats but way more presentable.

Yoga

15 Oct

Yoga 1
{Chambray Shirt: Old Navy; Striped Dress (worn as tunic): H&M; Leggings: Forever21: Boots: MIA via After 6; Camera Bag: THEIT; Sunglasses: thrifted}

I wore this last weekend to go to yoga and brunch with Tracy.  I knew we were going to head out to eat immediately after class, so I needed to wear something comfortable, yet put together for going to a restaurant.  For yoga, I obviously left the boots in my locker along with the chambray shirt and put them on again when class was done.  It worked perfectly!

Now I’m on the hunt for more work out gear I can wear immediately after a workout without looking like a gym rat/slob after.  If anyone has any suggestions, throw them my way!

Shlubby

29 Aug

I was feeling pretty ” shlubby” Saturday when I woke up. I had a long week at work and was absolutely exhausted with no motivation to get out of my pajamas.

Being it’s not socially acceptable to roam the streets of Williamsburg in my jammies, this is what I came up with. A simple chambray button down shirt, black leggings and houndstooth flats. As simple as that. All of which are just as comfy as said jammies and at least looked nice enough I could take a walk with the hubby and Portia to the farmer’s market and dog run and for them not to be embarrassed to be seen in my presence.

What I’m Wearing:
Shirt: Old Navy
Leggings: Forever 21
Flats: Stoop Sale Find
Necklace: Simply Vera for Kohl’s
Bag on My Shoulder: Forever 21
Andy Warhol Tote: Find that day at a stoop sale
