Hello one and all and happy Saturday! It’s a frigid cold eight degrees in Akron, Ohio at the moment. That type of weather calls for bundling up in some cute lounge wear and staying inside!!! I drew inspiration for this look from my sweet best friend Lea, who is super fond of the leggings and long socks combination. After trying this out for myself for the first time, I was shocked that I hadn’t done it sooner, I adore it!!
As usual, here’s the breakdown of the brand of each item in this look and where it was purchased:
- Flannel: PacSun, Gypsy Warrior
- Leggings: PacSun, Nollie
- Knee socks: Target
- Shirt worn underneath flannel: PacSun, Volcom
(All together this look cost me roughly sixty dollars. Keep in mind that an employee discount was used on the PacSun items from when I used to work there. Ballin on a budget 😉 )
I’m gonna keep it real with you guys…I hate leggings. I avoid wearing them at ALL costs…but I can’t exactly wear knee high knit socks with my signature black skinny jeans, believe me, I tried! So I dug my “use if absolutely necessary” pair of leggings that may or may not have multiple holes in them out of the bottom of my pajama drawer and begrudgingly put them on. I don’t hate myself too much for wearing them though, because I feel like this outfit is cute as can be…cute enough that I would be okay with wearing this look in public with a nice tall pair of boots. I guess I hate leggings when they look sloppy, and I like to think I don’t look too sloppy in these bad boys! 😉 As you guys know, I’m SO obsessed with my Gypsy Warrior flannels it isn’t even funny, so of course my red and grey one was a must to tie this look together. To keep the look sweet and simple I have on a charcoal grey three quarter length sleeve shirt underneath the flannel. I absolutely love the knee socks that I have on, most importantly because they’re so warm and cozy but being adorable is definitely helpful as well! When I saw these at Target, I stocked up on a bunch of different colors like aqua, charcoal grey, heather grey, and navy blue argyle. These fun knee socks are a nice little pick me up treat when you find yourself in the accessory aisles while you’re running your errands at Target. (Does anyone else spend way more money than necessary whenever they hit up Target? I know I do -____-) This OOTD goes out to my lovely Lea who taught me the cute way to do comfy cozy!
So there you have it, my Comfy Cozy OOTD to keep me nice and toasty in this nasty Ohio weather! What’s your favorite cold weather accessory? Are you a leggings lover or hater? I’d love to hear from you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Have a fabulous day! -Sarah
