What do you throw on to run to the grocery store?
Yesterday, I wore leggings which I have come to love! I didn't even own a pair of leggings until last year. Now I have several pairs. These are from Body Language by Connie. Connie has a real talent for finding good quality at a very reasonable price.
The long faux leather trimmed vest and cowl neck sweater are old from Chico's. The bag is old by Calvin Klein via T.J.Maxx. It has become my everyday bag because it seems to go with anything I wear. I read somewhere that if your bag and shoes match your natural hair color you will wear them much more often than any other.
The loafers are by BCBG via Saks Off 5th. Did you know that BCBG means bon chic, bon genre? In English, it means good style, good sort. It is an expression used in France to refer to a subculture of stylish members of the Paris upper class.
Wearing long tops with leggings and flats is the perfect running errands attire for me in cool weather. I like the long and lean look and enjoy the comfort. I still love to wear my heels but when I know I am going to be walking a lot, I wear comfortable flats.
Our weather can change as much as forty degrees in one day so layers are essential for me. Ruanas and vests are the perfect layers because you can take them off when you need to and still be well dressed but comfortable.
I like to wear a top that stops at about my fingertips over leggings. The extra layer over it can be shorter or longer. The ideal proportion is to visually divide your body in thirds (not in half).
