If you remember last week on my Laundry Basket post, you'll know that I'm aim for #YOLO this year.
In case you live under a rock, that means "You Only Live Once." That means, I'm wearing my pretty clothes even when I have no where to go. But that may not be the case for you, and even I am not above being practical in our arctic type whether.
Do you remember the "Wear to Where" series hosted by Katy McKinley. Its a fun series where you get a
location prompt and you think of how you'd wear your outfits. I'm going to play a mini version with outfits and locations I need to go to this week.
The Library. There is something about going to the library that makes me think dresses and tights. Too many stereotypes? At least I'm not wearing fake glasses. ;) A Greenstyle Laurel in a comfy cotton knit would be a great option here. Comfy, cute and perfect for knit tights and boots (everything looks better with boots, right?). And if I'm worried about the cold, I could wear any number of of my cardigans. Sounds like the perfect outfit.
Love Notions Sabrina Slims plus my Raspberry Creek Fabrics french terry Patterns for Pirates Slim Fit Raglan should be just enough to combine style and warmth. My SFR even has a nice kangaroo pocket for keeping my hands warm. If the weather is decent, I could walk the 1/2 block to the class without a coat (some days it is 40-50 degrees here in winter). And if not, I can layer on a warm coat.
Love Notions Willow Wrap Dress and either cable knit leggings, tights or regular leggings. No one has to know I'm super comfy.
Love Notions Sabrina Slims and my sweater knit (from Sly Fox) La Bella Donna. Fashionable and no one needs to know I put a yoga waistband on them. Plus my Sabrina Slims are fleece lined, so I'll be warm without being too hot.
Dinner out with my family? (fat chance, our schedule is so full this week, but you can never be too prepared ;) ). This is an easy one to choose. A Sis Boom Carolina Mae and my Paper Cut Coppelia. If I was feeling really serious about this out fit, I'd grab The Wolf and the Tree Gazelle Tights.
Sly Fox Fabrics has the perfect fabrics for this one. A Love Notions La Bella Donna Tunic and 5 out of 4 Ninja Leggings, both in their decadent double brushed poly. Comfy, cozy and perfect for a night in. And if it gets too chilly, definitely add in my New Horizons Harbor Hoodie. For the record though, when I can't be bothered to pick an outfit, this is definitely my go to.
Pirates Slim Fit Raglan in Space Dyed Double Brushed Poly from Raspberry Creek Fabrics and a pair of simple cotton leggings. Plus my fuzzy warm boots if we end up going out. Comfy, cute and at least I can rub the fabric to make myself feel better.
Itch to Stitch Lindy Petal Skirt. And to pair with it, either the Closet Case Nettie Body Suit and a warm cardigan like the Mouse House Creations Julia Cardigan, Peekaboo Cambridge Cardigan or even the Swoon Cardigan.
