Wrapped Up



I've been feeling a bit under the weather this week, but being a stay-at-home mom to 2 school-aged kids means I don't get the luxury of laying low for long.  This outfit was my simple solution for looking polished & pulled together while dropping them off at school & running errands.  The plush coat feels just like wrapping up in a big blanket - perfect for pairing with faux leather skinnies & a simple gray tee on days when I don't have the energy to put alot of thought into my look.




What I'm wearing:
H&M coat (similar here, here or here), StyleMint tee (similar), Xhilaration skinnies (here or similar here), ALDO booties (similar), Earrings c/o Lucky FABB (similar), Target sunnies (similar), Nails: OPI You Don't Know Jacques

I don't think I'd have put on leather leggins on an under-the-weather day! Glad you glammed it up, none of that chunk white sneakers with a thick sweater and leggins for you! You look like you are ready to go out!

Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I hear you about needing days to just be comfy. As a working mom, there are days I wish to be in sweats :)

You look great even if you don't feel well.

Wonderful casual look!

For me... Fall arrives... Saturday arrives... leather pants make an almost weekly appearance.

Just too easy... just too fabulous.

Pair them with a coat like yours... incredible look! I need one. Hee Hee

This is officially my favorite outfit of the day - totally pinning it. And I have tried those pants on twice at Target - what the hell am I waiting for???? They are SO mine. I am bummed the jacket is no longer available. Sads.

One of the nice things about winter is having a fabulous coat. Doesn't matter what you are wearing, just throw on the coat and you look completely polished.

This is certainly not how I dress when I'm feeling sick - think more lululemon yoga pants and a big men's sweater haha. You look so chic and I LOVE that coat!
