Style Perspectives - leggings and a scarf look

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

14 bloggers each picked a look that defined their personal style.  The featured blogger on the Blended Blog showcases her signature style (the prompt for that day) and then the other bloggers (on their personal blogs) show how they interpret it AND you get to join in on the fun by linking up!!!

Last week's plaid look stumped the bunch of us, but I we all managed to come up with some cute Alison-inspired looks:

Leggings and a Scarf Look

Can I be honest? I was stumped AGAIN this week. Maybe I'm just generally having a hard time getting dressed since my sick-self has been rocking pjs for the better part of a week. Seriously, I relied on leggings the bulk of my first maternity leave (that's almost a year folks) and haven't been shy of them this time around either.

The thing though? I love leggings. They are soooooo comfy but I think my problem is that I don't have enough "cover your butt" shirts (aka tunics). Note to self: add tunics to shopping list.

I managed to pull something together (mostly because I had to) but I'm not over the moon about it. Also, try not to judge my swollen eyes (which, in all likelihood, you wouldn't have noticed had I not said anything) this sinus infection is causing all kinds of havoc with my face/head (good times I tell ya).

Looking back at this, I realize why I dislike it, my shirt isn't long enough for my liking. Good thing I didn't leave the house (the backyard doesn't count)! Whew, that was close.

Now, as much as I am not a huge fan of this outfit, I have mad love for these leggings. They are more than I would normally spend on leggings (but they go on sale ALL the time) but they are all kinds of amazing (I have Deena and Christy to blame thank for introducing me to them). I own 4 pairs now!!! Best part? High and wide waist band that helps keep in all my post-baby jiggle. YES please!!!
