Lazy Girl, Fancy Pants

For someone who loves being dressed up all the time, I have to admit, I'm a bit lazy... I'm the girl who sleeps til the very last second because I'm cranky if I don't get enough sleep (I am not a morning person, haha), but I'm also the girl who refused to wear sweats out of the house (and even in my house, jeggings are pretty much the closest I'll come to sweats like 98% of the time).  My solution?  Pieces that look fancy, but are super comfy...enter modern-day lounge wear.

What's better than rolling out of bed (or off the couch, haha), and being able to get up and go by throwing on a sweater?  Instant presentability at it's finest; lazy girls everywhere rejoice!

The dress I'm wearing today, is actually an Aerie nightie, with a sweater (also Aerie!) thrown over it, and paired with tights and OTK boots (score!)!  It certainly doesn't get any easier for a girl who only leaves herself fifteen minutes to get ready in the morning (oops!  haha).

On the (Overalls) Bandwagon

I'll be the first to admit, when I first saw that overalls were making a comeback, I was skeptical.  I wore the in all sorts of styles when I was younger (I was a 90s kid, so I had multiple pairs, haha).  But a few weeks ago, while I was at work, I spotted these Aerie overalls that had just come in...I had to have them.

Sunday I had to be up extra early (yuck) to babysit.  Running after three kids calls for super comfy, moveable pieces; and having to go to work right after, means that comfy also has to look chic.

This burgundy Aerie hat takes this outfit from lazy Sunday morning to chic and stylish.  I love that this look is fun, and comfortable, and still makes a statement even though it's pretty much made up of all lounge wear (Aerie for the big win on that one!)!

Adding some bold accessories kicks it up a notch: a statement clutch and bold, classic gold watch, adds some interest to what would otherwise just be lazy girl loungewear.

How do you take your lazy girl wear to stylish and chic?  :)

Autumn Shorts + WIWW

This weather has been really funky lately, like Mother Nature's confused whether it's finally fall, or if summer should linger a little longer; the mornings are cool and crisp, but then by the afternoon it shoots up to seventy degrees (ugh!), and then early evening the weather cools down again.  This makes getting dressed a bit of a pain, because I never know what the weather's going to be like.

I love the whole shorts over tights look, it's the perfect solution to the inconsistent weather that is the beginning of fall; you're still wearing shorts, so you won't be too hot, but the tights are great  for the chill early and later in the day!

Confession: I can't tie a proper bow like this for the life of me.  My sister tied this for me, lol.

I'm never without my gold Fossil watch, and I've been wearing it every day since it arrived in the mail!

...and this tassel saddle bag is quickly becoming a staple.  Best ten bucks I've spent at a vintage store. Ever.

OTK boots are everything for fall.  If you don't already own a pair, do yourself a favor and invest in a good pair--totally worth it.  They're sleek and sexy, you can really add some oomph to any outfit just by sliding a pair of these bad boys on!

Menswear meets sleek and chic is such a fun look to wear; it's comfortable, easy for running around, and it's such a fashionable look.  It's a great way to turn that plain while button up into something other than boring, typical office wear.

Insta Round Up: October Faves

So yesterday was Halloween (aka my fave holiday), and what a blast!  I even had three different costumes!

But it's also November first, can you believe it?!  Thanksgiving is close by (so is Black Friday, all my fellow retail workers, I hope y'all are ready for the craziness!), and Christmas is on deck!  So today I'm doing an Insta-round up of my October faves!  :)

What were your October faves?  :)
