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

Tom’s 50th birthday was all that and a bag of chips! Thanks to our amazing friends and family for making this milestone so special. The cake almost burned the house down with all those candles 😉 but we survived! Happy birthday to my @tom_sandberg! Love you! You didn’t peak in the 90’s you’re still out here getting cuter! ❤️ #birthdayparty #90sparty

Friday mood…
Join me while I gather eggs and check what’s growing in my veggie garden🪴 🐓 Veggie update: Currently my zucchini is slowing down (praise the Lord! 🙏🏾)Tomatoes are slowly but surely ripening, I have a bed of sweet potatoes and yellow onion, and some butternut squash, eggplant, and bell peppers, and one pumpkin so far! Cucumbers had a moment early summer but seem to be done now. I also tried to do grapes but they were a fail. Every year in the garden is an experiment and a learning experience! #veggiegarden #chickencoop
I like big blooms and I cannot lie! 🌸 🥰 #hydrangeas
Ratatouille with a side of air fryer chicken and some crusty bread 🤌🏾 I called it ‘lazy girl’ Ratatouille but ‘busy girl’ would have been more accurate - because you save a lot of time by cooking the eggplant, zucchini, and peppers separately. Easy, fast, and fresh - give it a try! #dinnerideas
5 years old and already way too cool for mommy!
