A Case of the Lazies




{Wearing: H&M Sweater (old), American Apparel Skirt c/o TeamBuy, Plum Bag, Aldo Pumps}

I took the week after Christmas off work and was suuuper lazy. It helped that I was sick for most of the week so I had an excuse for rarely leaving the couch but regardless I didn't really do much. Now that I am trying to get back into the swing of things I'm finding it difficult to shake the lazies. As I get dressed I stare at my sweat pants with puppy dog eyes and miss their coziness. Since I've already shared that I consider maxi skirts to be my favorite sweat pant replacement option and this sequin H&M sweater is as comfy as a bedazzled house coat, this outfit was a perfect pj replacement. (For the record, I didn't wear heels for very long. My flat boots were waiting for me in my car). 

What's your go-to comfy outfit when you're suffering from a case of the lazies?

  3. I wish my "lazy" outfit was as chic as this one! On my lazy days I tend to go for skinny jeans, leather boots and oversized cozy sweaters.

  4. pretty pretty pretty...I still just love that skirt, and I think the sparkly sweater was the perfect match!
    It is so hard to get back into things after the Holidays...and it doesn't help when it is so gloomy outside! Hopefully the sunshine will be back for us soon

  5. Funny enough...I plan on wearing one of my Spendid maxi skirts today because of the cozy factor. Great minds think alike;-)

  6. What a gorgeous skirt! You look lovely. My lazy outfit is a pair of sweatpants and a hoodie. But of course I only wear these while I'm at home!

  13. Beautiful skirt - simple outfit but very pretty!! My go-to comfy outfit is boyfriend jeans with a big cozy sweater (winter) or brightly coloured baggy t-shirt (summer). Can't go wrong!

    (Love your bag btw, it's a beauty)
