thrift star of the day: pants are overrated

cozy layers

Winter inevitably becomes pants-hating time for me. I want, above all, to stay warm, but my inclination is always dresses and skirts.
This year, a life-changing discovery: layered leggings, tights and socks work almost as well as a pair of jeans for keeping warm! This outfit makes me very happy. The ultimate in cozy-chic is born.

    Wow I love the look. And why do all the girls have to be so annoyingly adorable?!

  • Grumble…now i feel like a punk for giving in to jeans today. she is too cute and comfy for words…sigh…and i’m a fashion cop-out.

  • I really love the coat and the over-all look!
    it’s true that 2 pairs leggings are as warm as a pair of jeans and way more comfortable! but i have to admit that i only wear pants when it’s really really cold!

  • This is true for me as well. I’ll wear about three leggings and if possible tights as well. Jeans have become a bit annoying but I still find time to wear them. :)

  • I love the monochrom-esque look! and you are so adorable

  • That outfit has the perfect amount of color. Love the sweater/tights/boots look!

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
