Wardrobe Diaries: Sweatshirt, Skirt and Stilettos


'













































One of the best trends to emerge in recent years has to be the glamorization of loungewear. Who knew looking stylish could be oh, so comfortable! With the plethora of boyfriend jeans, sweatpants, wedge sneakers, baseball caps, duffle bags gracing the fashion scene, it's hard to ignore the fact that comfort wear is here to stay.

Most street style looks combine loungewear with some other form of urban wear. Think leather, camo, drapey neutrals and lots of black. While I adore the edgy minimal approach to making sweats look chic, I also love the idea of glamming things every now and then with flirty feminine pieces in the brightest of colours. With Spring on the horizon, here's a few things I'll be wearing to get me through these last weeks of winter- a comfy sweatshirt, long line pencil skirt, pointy toed pumps, leather wrap bracelet and my beloved Trio.

So tell me readers, when was the last time you wore sweats out of the house? Have you also caught the comfort bug?

Jenee, you truly made that look your own, I love your wonderful personal style--those pink heels just make the look! A stylist friend of mine recently banned me from wearing sweatshirts (I have quite a collection of Wildfox sweatshirts). I sadly folded them all up and said I'd give them away--of course in less than a week I have snuck them all back into the closet, haha.

Hope you had a great weekend!

I agree! The glamorization of loungewear has totally taken me over. But, it does mean I have to make an effort to glam it up too! =) Love how you glammed yourself. The skirt and those heels are prefect!

Yes, I love comfortable clothes but I rarely wear track suits when going out - only to the supermarket if I absolutely have to... Love your skirt!

Great combination. I also really love the glamorization of loungewear, in part because I don't really wear sweats out of the house so this trend give me the perfect excuse to be both comfortable & stylish.

Jenee i think that yellow is "your" color. You look amazing. If you cannot find that pretty Celine of your's, it is most likely here in Atlanta and be prepared for some ransom money, lol. Happy Monday girl. Lounge wear now a days are not far from the regular blouses and tops.

Oh my goodness! In love with your skirt!!! So unique, original, and amazing:)! Come back to visit my blog soon:)! Miss seeing you around!

Simona lakenmoon said...

Ha! This is my favorite way of dressing right now. I would like to go all out on the loungewear, but it doesn't look good, and by adding something more tailored you glam up your sweats and make the tailored pieces cool, win win. Your outfit is so much more sophisticated than mine would be, you look so stunning! Love the elbow patches too, overall more than win, win: a real winner!

I LOVE the skirt with the pink pumps. Perfect little colorblocking. I also like the laidbackness of the top verses the skirt.
