It was Saturday, it was cold and snowy, and I needed to tackle the grocery store. My preference was to just stay in my pjs. So, what’s wrong with comfy? Nothing, if you just use a little common sense. Here’s an example of how I do it.
Fleece tunic – This top is so soft, and I love the funnel neck. It’s a great length for my age, since I don’t want everything hanging out. (For you younger ladies, you might want to go a little shorter.) American Apparel (downtown Chicago. Check them out online — they have tights in just about every color of the rainbow.)
Skinny jeans — These are SO comfortable. They are stretch denim, but don’t have any zippers or pockets to cause a lot of lumps and bumps. And here’s my big secret — they have an elastic waist! (I once told my daughter that if I ever even go near the elastic waist pants, she should shoot me dead — right here, right now! But these pants are my exception.) Daisy Fuentes at Kohl’s.
Tip: The secret to buying skinny jeans is to make sure the calves aren’t too tight. If you have fuller calves or thighs, try straight-leg jeans instead.
Boots – I love this pair, because they are very loose in the leg, making it really easy to wear them with jeans or heavy socks. Mid-calf boots are also popular and are really cute with leggings or skinny jeans.
Do any of you have any favorites for those “comfy” days? Please feel free to comment.
