Cozy Chic

I love leggings. However, I typically don't leave the house wearing them as anything other than hosiery. It is a rarity for me to find a tunic type garment that is actually long (and wide) enough to go over my hips and provide enough booty coverage for me to wear leggings as pants. So, when I found this flowy gray tunic on super clearance at H&M, I knew I had to have it. I also knew I would layer it under my over-sized, vintage grandma sweater. I love outfits that are as comfortable as pajamas, but still look put together.

I wore this outfit to get out of the house on Sunday while Mike watched foot ball. I ended up going a little crazy at H&M, but since my cold weather professional wardrobe is lacking, I feel I can adequately justify my purchases. 

Outfit: Cardigan- vintage/ thrifted; Leggings and flats- Target; Blouse and Belt- H&M; Jewelry- various 
Maybe I should think about investing in some thicker/ higher quality leggings, so that I can wear leggings as pants more often. 


  1. LOVE this look on you! The belt is adorable! :)


  2. I love the oversized sweater! It looks so warm and very comfy!

  3. Leggings are my Sunday go-to. I always pair them with one of Dave's button up shirts and tall boots to go grocery shopping and run errands. They seriously feel like pjs! Super cute and can't wait to all your H&M haul!

  4. You look so cute and comfy! I love wearing leggings since it's basically like publicly acceptable pajama pants, haha. :)

  5. Super comfy. I think that Vera Wang's brand at Kohl's has some twill leggings on line and I'm thinking about buying a pair. Tons of colors, $28 a pop.

    1. I have some Vera leggings from Kohl's! I really like them, but they run small! (Or at least they did last year. Maybe they've changed this year.)

  6. Granny sweater + leggings = ideal comfy fall outfit <3


  7. I'm always really uncomfortable wearing legging just by themselves, usually I'll wear the as an extra layer of under my maxis. I need to braver and take some cues from you, you look lovely in yours and so confident! I really like this combination of the black tunic and the white cardigan, together they look like a color-blocked top! The little pop of pattern with the leopard flats adds a ton of visual interest as well.
    And wow, what a gorgeous spot to take photos!
