In honor of the blizzard that we’re dealing with in Milwaukee right now, I wanted to share the discovery that has totally changed the game for me fashion-wise this year. This may be old news to most of you, but every time I’ve mentioned these in the comments on other blogs or in real life, ears start perking up, so I thought I should write up a little post. Are you ready for this?
I’ll tell you again: fleece-lined leggings. The world is just a little bit brighter since they came into my life. I’m someone who really enjoys dressing up, and I always feel at my best in skirts and dresses. But I do not feel my best when my legs are about to fall off from the cold. So every winter, I eventually find myself giving in to the warm allure of pants, abandoning my style principles. It’s a total bummer. This year I resolved to keep workin’ my favorite parts of my wardrobe, even if it meant going cold. Luckily, it never had to come to that.
I bought my leggings at Target, and I wear them practically every day. They are the perfect substitute for tights when it gets cold out. I’m warmer in my leggings than I used to be wearing jeans. They’re comfy and snuggly, and you feel like you’re secretly wearing your favorite pair of sweatpants at work. Now that’s some quality winter wear. As a Wisconsin girl who doesn’t see a move to warmer climes in her future any time soon, these are going to be an indispensable part of my winter wardrobe going forward.
