Sept 8, Camo Leggings

Today I’m dressing super casual in my camo leggings and a top. I actually went on Instagram for inspiration again, and this time wasn’t very lucky. I found a ton of photos of women posing in camo with their butts, their boobs or their rock hard bellies! Not really what I was looking for…

In my before outfit I tried a black v neck top with the camo leggings. I’m fine with the black, but the length is too short and overall it just seemed a little too dark. I decided to try a white tank instead. I like the contrast of the bright white with the leggings, but this top is also a little short, so I needed to add this grey cardigan to cover my butt! To add a little interest, I threw on a long necklace and my black tennis shoes finish the outfit. Definitely not my favorite outfit of all time, but it’s warm and comfy and will have to do!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Jan 26, Camo Leggings

I have had camo jeans for years, I have both a camo sweatshirt and t shirt that I love, a camo hat that I adore… but these camo leggings are my absolute FAVORITE!

I originally saw these on a blog that I love (Pinterestingplans) and immediately wanted them for myself. Then, about a day later I was at Anthropology and saw the exact leggings she was wearing. However, they were about $75. YIKES! So as much as I loved them, I was not about to spring $75. Fast forward a few days and I was at my all time favorite store- Nordstrom Rack- and lo and behold, there they were (different brand) for $20, now that’s more my style!

I immediately snatched them up and came home and started playing around with all the different tops I could think of to wear these with. These leggings are so soft and comfy- I just know I’m going to get a lot of use out of them. Plus, I read on another blog that camo is the new black- which means they go with everything!

Today I’m playing it safe, pairing them with white, black and grey

In my before photo I am wearing a tight V Neck white sweater with the leggings. While I love this sweater, it doesn’t work with leggings. When you are in your 40’s (or older) it is essential to cover up your lady parts. The younger gals can get away with a crop top and leggings, but for us more mature women, we need to keep it covered! Front and back. Just saying.

In my after look #1 I have replaced the white sweater with a cute loose fitting tank from Ann Taylor. I love this tank because it has a built in extra little chiffon layer at the bottom- which adds detail and length. Underneath I have on this cute lace bralette from Target. I added a necklace for variety, and since I’m living out of a suitcase for a few days, I will re-wear my giant grey sweater that I wore on the plane. This covers my parts, adds warmth and looks cute.

Another option is to pair the leggings with a white top.

In this option I am sticking with a white top, but instead of the sweater I have chosen a cute waffle shirt. These shirts seem to be all the rage right now. This one is OLD and needs to be replaced, but it works. The cute button detail and neckline add interest, the length is better and the thermal fabric will keep me warm. The only change I will make it that I will add a tank underneath, I don’t love that you can see the leggings underneath.

 

So… which would you suggest I wear? Option #1 or Option #2? Chime in- I’d love to hear from you, or hear what you pair camo with.
