thrifted blazer, $3 (similar); thrifted white t-shirt, $5 (similar); Target sweatpants, $18; Target sandals, $8 (similar)

This post is brought to you by thrifting and Target. I got these sweatpants a couple weeks ago and they're all I've been wearing at home (with a t-shirt, gross! {..or is it?}). Can you tell I've been in a be-as-lazy-as-possible-but-still-look-put-together-with-the-least-amount-of-effort mood lately? Ahem. In fact, I'm so lazy that I wore this to work. I'm 97.4% sure that I wore this all weekend too. But that's the beauty of it all... Add high-heels and a blazer and you can't even tell they're sweatpants!! (Work with me here..)

Also, how to dress up cropped sweatpants to wear them to work (at least, my work).

  1. I know this trend is coming. The chic sweatpant. But I just can't do it. Yeah right, that's what said about socks and heels. You wear this look beautifully!

  7. That's so funny because when I look back I think "I can't believe I wore that!" My style is definitely changing. Right now, I think it's leaning more towards simple, comfortable, fast, and effortless (although, I don't think the latter is properly conveyed most of the time).

  9. You know, I couldn't pull it off,but I totally see the appeal and it's tidier than a way too relaxed pair of jeans. So go with your comfy self. And if someone else doesn't like it I say too bad.

  11. I have similar sweat pants. I also wear them all the time. Hmmm...you just put an idea in my head. Time to break out that blazer.

  12. If it's good enough for Marc Jacobs and his runways, then it's good enough for me.  Nice work giving this trend a try!

  13. No.  Are you depressed? Because I don't understand why anyone would wear the same outfit, one that includes sweatpants, all weekend and then to work.

  14. It took me a minute to realize you are actually wearing SWEATPANTS here. They look super classy with the blazer & heels. You look great in this photo.

  17. You just blew my mind!  I didn't think chic sweatpants could be done... but you did it!

  18. Oh i love you're changing style! but i think you look the best when you're dressed slightly more sophisticatedly. i don't know. maybe I'm not used to sweat pants for every day wear yet. For some reason though when J. Crew models wear them they look amazing. Don't we all wish to be a J. Crew model? Anyways--- love your blog :)

  21. If sweats were made of denim, yes.  If sweats were made of anything but knit, yes.  And, don't hate me for pointing this out, but you've got the Mormon equivalent of VPL.  lol.

  25. Thanks! I agree. I think BF jeans here would've been too frumpy.

  29. I still have to try socks and heels...but don't think I ever will. I feel like my legs are too muscular for that trend! You need toothpick legs.
