leggings

happy friday everyone! we are getting hit with a bit snow storm. they are anticipating about 20-25 cm/10 inches of snow so if it stays, we'll have a white christmas. while the buses are cancelled, i'll still be driving the kids to school. snow days at school always seem more fun, and you just play - especially the last day before the holidays. i'm also not sure if they cancelled the christmas pageant so we will definitely have to head out just in case!

this season, i have gravitated towards oversized tops. i am blaming olivia palermo for this after spotting her with a vince poncho on this fun blog, what she wore. i am also blaming skipping too many workouts. this zara asymmetric sweater is so big, i feel i can justifiably overeat (isn't that what the holidays are about?) and you won't be able to tell that i ate 3 times my weight in food. the vince poncho is also nestled nicely into my closet. thanks, olivia. these are my first pair of leggings and i really liked the seams at the knees. i was a bit concerned with a full faux leather panel at the front being just too.. shiny? i went up to a S in these - sizing up with zara is the norm, if you are ordering online. have a great day and if you are battling snowpocalypse, please be safe! xox P

  12. Love it! I wear oversized things as well---and I have done for the past several years--I think it's for all of the above reasons and because it's just so darn comfy. Please then I can easily wear leggings and not have to worry it they are too sheer because if my oversize sweater/poncho thing covers enough, it really doesn't matter! hehe!
