Inspiration Monday

Happy Monday.
We had a little surprise snow "storm" here on Saturday.
It came down fast and hard and was so pretty.
It was all gone by Sunday afternoon.
That's my kind of snow "storm."

This Monday our inspiration over on Two Birds is Charlize Theron.
This look was perfect as I continue to work my way back to trying to get my style mojo after being sick.
Very casual, loose and non-structured. 
 Perfect outfit after a bout with the "stomach flu"
I am not usually one to wear leggings as pants,
 but this was super comfortable
 and 
I really didn't have to go out in public.
I would normally wearing this look with a great pair of skinny jeans if I was going to be out and about. 
 I wouldn't want to turn into a Kris Jenner DON'T! 
  You know us women of a certain age have to be careful 
of what we wear.
As you can see I had pretty good butt coverage,
 so I felt ok.


Is this a look you would wear
or
 would you be more comfortable in skinny jeans?

I've definitely donned my leggings in public - but thick fabric and good coverage of your derrière is essential.

I fell pretty darn comfortable in leggings as long as my rump is covered up. I definitely would wear something like this. I love the layering that you did. Looks so comfortable! You did a great job making the inspiration look all your own!

I like your shirt and sweater look better than the inspiration. I like a long tank with my leggings so I think you're good to go. :)

I get where you're coming from. I used denim leggings!
This is Debbie (formerly of thriftygirlvintage, but now at ilovemylemonadelife.com). I feel like Prince now.
Anyway, it's good to see you again. Debbie

I think it looks great - youthful and fun without looking like you're trying too hard.
I'm proud to say I've only seen Kris Jenner for about twenty seconds total. Not even remotely interested in her!

I would definitely be more comfortable in skinny jeans or pants. I don't even own leggings! But you do make them look really cute and comfy for a weekend around the house look.

I'm not a legging person now...I think I wore nothing BUT leggings for at least five years in the '80s. They're fine on other people, but I guess I burnt out!

:) Nope, not leggings for this old girl. Not even skinny jeans but I love to dream of when I could wear them. You always look adorable..enjoy..the year DO fly by.
I wear jeans constantly. Light ones, dark ones..but always the straight leg. I have a BUTT so have to be careful. I know butts are now in style..but olden ladies should not flaunt theirs.
LOVE the top..the layered look. Very comfy looking and yet stylish. In or out...good for both.
Thank you for stopping by. Hugs for that!
