Succumbing to Transitional Sweatpants

Since we barely had any winter at all here in LA, I feel as if I've been wearing my same Fall formulas since July, when we first started selling Fall items at NAS. My boredom with my Fall clothes finally won out over my perverse desire to get more wear out of my now-obsolete winter items.

Soooo... these sweatpants came out to play earlier than expected - with black and with booties for now (I'll save the whites and sandals for nearer to the 2nd quarter).

Inspired by Vince's current line:

As an aside, I was super happy to nab these sweats on sale and with a Nordies Note, enabling me to stretch the Spring budget. Woohoo!

My favorite way to wear these pants is with my dark turquoise Muubaa, but I thought I had to save that for a blue focus at work (I was mistaken, but I found that out too late). I do really like the extra soft effect of all the flowy pieces together, though!

Tahari leather jacket - Bluefly
Go Make Noise sweats - Nordstrom
Pleione racerback tank - Nordies (gratis)
Oh! Shoes booties - Amazon
Chunky chain - Ebay
Tiger charm - Florence, Italy
Brahmin bag - Nordies
Silver cuff - handed down from Mom

    You make sweatpants look amazing! Gorgeous outfit. I love the flow of it, the drape, and the fab touches like the kitty necklace. You really were born with the style gene!

    How awesome that something as cozy as sweatpants are work appropriate!  I love all the flowy pieces, too.

    This is so cool.
    I'll have to try my fancy sweatpants with my caramel leather jacket. Thanks for the inspiration.

    You do make sweatpants look chic, Rae. They are not my cup of tea but you surely rock them. Are you allowed to wear them to work? Not too casual for Nordstrom?

    Love that you can make sweats high fashion! It's like getting away with wearing pajamas to work! Looks great with the leather jacket.

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    You look great in this combination, Rae. I love the juxtaposition of the leather with the sweatpants. 

  • Aubergine replied 4 years ago

    You look great! I dream of wearing sweatpants to work, although none of mine are nearly that stylish.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 4 years ago

    Those sweatpants looks sensational on you Rae.

  • gryffin replied 4 years ago

    Rae - what a wonderful outfit on you!!  You do make sweats look so elegant!!  I would never have dreamt of using the caramel jacket with gray and black and the graphic bag but it works fabulously well.  You have a really amazing eye for texture, color and proportion.  I am really awed by it.  Love your tiger charm!!  Just perfect!!  Hope your day is as wonderful as your outfit!!

  • Aquamarine replied 4 years ago fashion-forward. You are totally rocking the sweatpants!
