Playgrounds & Lollipops - Creature Comforts

Raglan sleeve tunic: James Perse; Leggings: Gap; Ombre Patent Ballet Flats: Banana Republic
Earrings: Vera Wang for Kohl’s

Who brought the legging back? Whoever it was, I want to track them down and give them a big hug of gratitude. Seriously, it was a genius idea to bring this clothing category back, which had previously been left to gym workouts and dance parties, as a suitable clothing option for women of all shapes, ages and sizes. And the fact that it has stayed on the radar for the last 3 years, proves its longevity. Ladies, I think these babies are going to be around for a while, and I like it.

Feeling more like a size 8 today than a size 6? No problem. Bought a dress that shrunk and is now too short to even wear in a hot nightclub? No problem, we’ve got a legging for that. Feel like rocking that just rolled out of bed look, but know that with that PTA meeting you might be shunned if you actually wore your PJ’s? The legging’s gotcha covered.

I wore my leggings today with a top that is actually made of sweatshirt material. Heaven on Earth.  And hello casual Friday, I like you mighty fine.


  1. I love them too! Although I don't think I pull them off quite like you do :D But they are so comfy that I don't care if my legs do look like the biggest bird legs ever to grace this earth! :D

  2. I love it... the whole ensemble. You rock it! I actually bought a pair of leggings and have worn them twice and am in love. nancy + leggings= True Love!

  3. That top looks so comfy, but this whole outfit still looks work-appropriate. I love that! I saw a similar (less tunic, more shirt) blouse at Anthropologie the other day... Maybe I should have purchased...

  4. Those shoes scream! Love them. And I for one am loving leggings again myself. I personally remember 1986 and the stirrup pant revolution :)
    And I checked out our Target for Tucker and we don't have it. I hope it's just a "not yet" as opposed to "never."

  5. so chic my sweet - i officially covet your red flats, seriously!!

  6. LOVE the flats....very pretty!!

    Have a fabulous weekend!
