I’m a huge fan of leggings! They are perfect to wear while you’re running errands on the weekend! I mean, you still want to be comfortable and look cute! That’s why I love this necklace from RPM Creations. It’s the perfect addition to an otherwise boring outfit. RPM Creations also does my hair, love me some Robert Moore!

Here’s a couple things about leggings, I have searched and searched for a t-shirt long enough to wear with leggings, it’s kind of a pet peeve of mine. Anyway, this t-shirt from ZARA is perfect. I’m telling you ZARA has some good tee’s! Here’s another thing, when shopping for leggings make sure you can’t see through them. Do a quick check, bend and if you can see skin, move on down the road.

    Not everyone can wear leggings you know :)… YOU look fab in them!!! Long and lean. Love the way you have this simple, comfortable outfit styled! I lived in leggings during my second pregnancy… perhaps I will snag a pair to wear now that I’m not pregnant. Thanks for the inspiration! PS– SOOO wish there was a Zara near me!!

    Love the tip for t shirts at Zara. I love wearing leggings to work when I’m not feeling up for scrubs and long shirts are a must….

    Great, casual but snappy look! I’ve not purchased anything from Zara before- can you tell me what size this t-shirt is? …I typically where a 2, sometimes a 4, on top.

    Hi Kim, The shirt is a medium and I’m typically a 4 on top. Hope that helps.

  10. I stumbled upon your blog via Pinterest. Love the write up about leggings and I love Zara! I make special trips to DC twice a year to go to Zara because sadly North Carolina isn’t big on amazing stores like Zara. Looking forward to reading your blog. BTW I also write a blog and would love your insight. I won’t post my blog here because that would be tacky but I will follow you. I can also message you my blog if you are interested.
