Bobeau fleece cardigan in “mink,” H&M; leggings (old), Kenneth Cole petite sweater (old)
I’ve gotten a few questions on what to wear while casually at home, such as this from anonymous: “I have trouble finding something to wear at home and not look sloppy…if you could do a post on different outfit ideas for lounging at home, that would be great.” For me, home is a safe place to “let go,” and 90% of the time I’m roaming around in full pajama sets or Nick’s over-sized tees. If there’s anyone other than us then I usually spare their eyes and simply pair a longer top or tunic sweater over leggings. For chillier days, this Bobeau fleece as an added layer is perfect for staying super comfy but still looking put-together.
I also love to layer the fleece under other jackets for insulation, plus the added dimension of the drape front. Here’s this Blank NYC faux-leather jacket again which runs on the smaller side (see my review).
I don’t often post infamous leggings on here, but do think they’re a wardrobe stable and can be chic when paired right! The key of course is to wear a longer top that covers your crotch (my sweater here is borderline a little short for wearing with leggings in public). For going outside, pair with flats/loafers, ankle booties, or my favorite…with over-the-knee boots for an elongating look.
I’m desperately in need of new leggings though – used to stock up on ones from H&M; but there’s an extra foot of material bunched up at my ankles (harder to hem because it’s a knit, and the leg opening is so narrow) and saggy butt and knees. I came across these petite leggings that have a 27″ inseam with good reviews and might give them a try. If you have longer legs, these Hue leggings in ~29″ inseam have a whopping 1,000+ reviews and nearly 5 stars so they must’ve gotten something right! Would love to hear your legging recommendations for shorter legs, with materials that don’t stretch out or sag.
I usually don’t use the button on this cardigan, but it can create a chic poncho-like effect when fastened. When layering under jackets like this that are worn open, it also helps keep the chest area fully covered:
These photos were snapped while we were running errands (had the Sheinside black + white coat in the car as my top layer) and stopped outside Polka Dog Bakery, the cutest shop for canine lovers. Dogs on walks a block away would catch a whiff of the treats and practically drag their owners to the front door. No dog for us, but we’ve become “aunt and uncle” to a few friends’ puppies and have been spoiling them accordingly : )
