Faux Leather Leggings + Oversized Sweater

Tonight as I write this, it is New Year’s eve, and my plans were to have an intimate dinner with hubby at the Signature Room in Chicago, and then after join some friends for a night out without baby. Instead I’m on my couch, eating pizza, and watching Master of None on Netflix. I woke up this morning sick with a sore throat and barely any voice, so I knew attempting to shout over a lively New Year’s crowd would not be an ideal situation for me.  Actually come to think of it, it’s really not so bad, I’ve got a fire going, I’m wearing my PJ’s, and I’m with my favorite people in the world. Not being able to talk today forced me to only communicate what was absolutely necessary, and for a chatterer like me, it was a good exercise to sit in silence. I’m pretty sure Tom didn’t mind either…

I think 2016 is the perfect time to announce my new found love for wearing leggings. Not just any old yoga pants though, Spanx faux leather leggings with a coated sheen that makes them look like real leather leggings, except they are way more comfortable and have the added benefit of body shaping (they are spanx, after all). Tights and an oversized cable-knit sweater is pretty much the perfect winter weekend outfit, paired with fuzzy slippers for lounging around the house, or with a pair of cute flats and a leather jacket for running errands.

Thanks for visiting as always, and Happy New Year! leopard-lace-up-shoes-cable-knit-sweaterleopard-flats-outfitoversize-sweater-spanx-leggingsLeggings: Thanks to Spanx | Sweater: H&M | Shoes: Zara (on Sale!) | Jacket: Sandro – Similar Style
