Apples & Oranges

Sweater: Gap, $28 // Leggings: Active & Basic via TJMaxx, $8 // Belt: F21, $3.50 // Coat: Silvana Cirri via TJMaxx, $45 // Bracelet: F21, $8 // Ring: Courtesy of Accessorize // Shoes: Payless

Your comments last time I wore this sweater made me feel better, so I gave it another go. This time, I wore it belted over denim leggings. I decided my other denim leggings were too much like jeans and not enough like leggings, so I got this pair and have barely taken them off since I got them. So comfortable, so easy to wear, and they look good too. The orange coat is an old favorite I haven't worn for awhile.

I like the colours in this outfit. And that coat is warm and super cute... a combination not always found in winter jackets.

I feel the jeggings make your legs look stumpy.

I love the colors and the belt is fantastic!

Did you get those at the JCP in town? I almost picked a pair up there that looked very similar. Anyways, good styling of the sweater! Belted it looks tons better, and the color is quite lovely on you.

Emily Kennedy said...

Those shoes ... I love them! I need to remember to check out Payless more often. I've seen some really awesome shoes from them lately. This outfit is great - very cozy but still put together well.

I've been eyeing those shoes at Payless for a little while now, but I was wondering, are they comfortable for walking?

NatalieW -

Yes, the shoes are quite comfortable. The heel is relatively low, and the toe is really round, so it doesn't pinch at all.

Jen said...

oh my goodness igby is such a stunner.

Diana said...

I love the color mix in the outfit. And that puppy is so adorable!

Francine said...

I'm seeing so much of denim leggings lately but I've been so scared of them. Maybe I need to give them a shot...

caramelizedvintage said...

I purchased a pair of denim-like leggings and felt weird about it and returned them. But, you make them look wonderful, so maybe I'll give it another go. I just happened on your blog and I'm loving it so far! You can find me at timeenoughfordrums.blogspot.com. Annie.

Jean leggings are the best! I have a pair in black and they look just like black skinny jeans but they feel like sweatpants! I looooove your puppy too!

I got my first pair from Forever21, but it was awhile ago, and they were on the sale rack. I'm not sure if they still have them, but I bet you can find a similar pair.
