A Day off in Style


“You cannot climb the ladder of success dressed in the costume of failure!”

Working for a National Company, we get today as a Holiday.  It is always a nice, relaxing opportunity to catch up with chores, run errands and spend time with my boys who are out from school.

We got to go for a nice lunch today, and then I opted to catch up on some work for the blog and do a little research.  When you don’t have deadlines or put unnecessary pressure on yourself it’s amazing what you can accomplish.

Even though I was running errands and I wanted to be comfortable, I also wanted to look stylish.  I grabbed a pair of amazing leggings that I recently purchased because they fit both criteria.  Leggings are a perfect wardrobe addition (if you pick the right pair) because they are comfortable, they can be flattering and of course don’t forget, you want to find a pair that is stylish.  I have seen lots of people walking around in leggings that are either worn out, the wrong color or fabric for someone’s body type (they show off ever bump and curve) and finally the worst thing I think I have ever seen is a pair of “flesh” colored leggings that looks like someone isn’t wearing any pants at all…definitely not the impression you want to make EVER!

I paired the leggings with a longer semi-fitted Black blouse and of course a Leather jacket 🙂

The booties have a perfect heel height for lots of walking, shopping and errand running – which is essential for weekends and holidays.  As I have mentioned before, I like to wear shoes with heels a lot more than not, so when I find a pair of boots or shoes that have heels but are still comfortable, I feel like i’ve hit the jackpot!!

What is your ideal street style?  Do you look for comfort first?  Style first?  Or do you just throw on whatever is closest.  The great thing about style and fashion is that it is ever-changing so you don’t ever have to stick with what you have always done, you can change at any time.
