I Wore: Comfortable and Concealed in Leopard and Leggings.

29 December 2011

I thought that with the passing of Christmas I would finally have a bit more time on my hands. I was wrong. Once again I find myself struggling to fit everything in to one day. Last night my family and I took a trip to see a Pantomime, a Christmassy type of tradition for lots of English people.

There was one small problem with the plan though, I've eaten and drunk SO much for the last few days I couldn't face the thought of getting dressed in anything tight or fitted! Honestly, at this point in time I couldn't care less if I never ever saw a chocolate truffle or glass of champagne again. Okay, the champagne maybe but the chocolate, eurrrgh, I feel sick just thinking about it.

There's only one answer in my hard in times like these:

Leggings!

Yes, they are my savior when times get hard or heavier should I say. They may not be the epitome of style but they are great for times like these. It was also the perfect opportunity to get another wear out of my oversized jumper dress too. Pure cosy, comfortable, concealed delight!


Jumper Dress - H&M. Handbag - Bally
If I'm wearing a plain outfit I like to add a printed scarf for a bit more interest. I started tying my scarves in a bow a few years ago. I think it looks girly and cute, like a teddy bear. Perhaps I'm deluded but either way it adds more interest. Along with a nice sparkly bracelet stack!
Leopard print scarf - H&M. Watch - Rolex. Assorted bracelets - Accessorize.
Lipstick colour - MAC 'Angel'
 

At the Panto! :)
Still in the Christmas spirit.

Tonight I'm out yet again and yet again I'm wearing leggings. Ha! Oh Christmas time I love you but I'm glad you're almost over!

Are you glad Christmas is over? What do you turn to in your wardrobe when you feel like you've maybe had one too many chocolates?

  3. I'm also a big fan of wearing scarves to spice up an outfit. I never thought about wearing it as a bow though!

  12. you look really really cute! i love the outfit. although, i'm kind of sad to see Christmas go. i'm already anxious for next Christmas. that's how much i love it. Haha. we all have those times when we feel like nothing fits, so during those days, i usually go for black skinnies an chunky oversized knit sweater and a scarf. definitely like your outfit! i usually stay away from leggings when i have those days just because it makes me feel exposed. i have no idea why.

  24. Thank you for all your comments once again ladies. I really love reading them.

    @Nee, I just tie it like a regular bow, takes a little practice to get it even but it's easy once you know how!

    @Carrie, I know what you mean about feeling a bit exposed. I only wear leaggings with long tops or dresses. I don't think they should ever be confused with pants! Haha.

    Stop by to say hey again soon everyone!
