I go back and forth between:
“Seriously? I have no time to worry about fashion!”
“I would like one of everything in the store, please!”
I generally settle somewhere in between at: “I need a few cute pieces that I can dress up or down so I can wear them anywhere.”
I’ve decluttered a LOT of my own clothes over the past few years. That, plus getting my laundry under control has helped me figure out what I really enjoy wearing.
#1 – It has to be comfortable.
#2 – It needs to be versatile.
As a kid, I never put up with itchy or pokey clothes, and the years haven’t made me any more mature in that area. I look for versatile pieces because as a work at home mom, I need things that can be appropriate for running up to the school or for a Girls’ Night Out.
Leggings are perfect for turning a dress into a casual outfit. I can move more freely and don’t have to worry about flashing the world if it’s an extra windy day. (Been there, done that.)
Here’s the outfit I created with No nonsense tights and leggings at Polyvore.com.
I love the casual, comfortable look of the dress, and I think the No nonsense leggings are perfect. While I thought about adding boots (so it would be a little more winter appropriate . . . ), I had to be realistic and choose slip-on shoes. I have started wearing boots some, but honestly prefer shoes that don’t require me to BEND over to get them on and off.
I know. I have issues.
No nonsense leggings and tights can be found at drugstores and mass retailers, and are an affordable addition to my wardrobe.
