Jan 21, Day Off

Let’s talk about the outfits below!

It’s MLK Day, and since I am a substitute teacher- I have the day off! Yeah! I want to be comfy and cute at the same time- and this outfit does that. The before outfit on the left is just a little too sloppy. Mostly my pant legs- see how they bag and gather at the bottom? I bought these pants at Athleta a few years ago and they were expensive and incredibly comfortable. But now looking at the photo- they aren’t flattering. The after ones I just bought at Fabletics, and they are amazing. First of all, they were half the price (I got them on sale), second the fabric is fleece lined. Yum! And third, they have pockets! Oh yeah!

Other changes I made were swapping out the bright fleece for an understated grey sweater. I’m still warm and comfy, but the sweater just brings it up a notch. The detailing on the shoulders make it interesting. It’s simple, yet there is something there. I also did the famous half tuck to break up the straight line across my middle, and switched out the clunky tennis shoes for cute slip ons (which are the most comfortable shoes I think I’ve ever owned. If you don’t know this about me- here you go- my feet hurt ALL the TIME.)  It sucks- and shoes are an issue for me. So, I swear by these!! And- best of all,  I wear socks with them!

And there you go- simple changes, but a much cuter look!

    1. Thank you so much! That is my goal- taking simple stuff that we already have in our closets and making outfits out of them. Stuff that real moms wear on a daily basis! 🙂
