The Creative Closet || Leggings Love

I typically spend my time in cotton leggings normally covered in spit-up, picking up toys, wiping the cutest tushy and dancing around my house like a fool just because it makes my baby giggle, which is music to my ears. So when I saw the prompt for leggings I was super stoked and decided right then and there I wanted to go dressy - something out of the ordinary around these parts.

Can we all agree Jana looks wonderful in hats? I love her dressy/casual outfit with the pop of red from her hat. And Nadia's bold red lip is ah-mazing and completely puts together her whole casual look. These ladies are both fabulous, make sure to check out their blogs. 

Thursday through Sunday we spent staining and painting our deck so I have to apologize for indoor pictures - I was chain and shackled to our house. Also you may notice my hair in the first picture is different from the rest of the pictures. That's what happens when baby doesn't nap like normal, interrupts my photo shoot and I have to restart after my next shower when I'm not covered from head to toe in stain and white paint again. It's trail and error people.

All black is classic and flattering. Wearing leggings this tight post baby means I need all the flattery I can get... #noshame #icarriedhumanlife. So I snagged my favorite tunic from the Old Navy clearance rack because it covers a bit of my tush, my faux leather leggings (a total steal last year from Forever21) and my comfiest black pumps. Add a bold red lip and a simple white clutch and this look becomes classic and timeless.

Bonus, Jon saw this outfit and requested it for our next date night so I think it was a total win!

leggings: F21 || top: Old Navy (clearance) || pumps: Target || clutch: Old Navy (clearance) || bar necklace: ClassyMamaDesigns || chain necklace: F21

I am pretty excited about next week's prompt. Meet my boyfriend... let's see your creativity! 

As always, please take the time to link back to mine or Jana's post to share the love :) Because we all need a little love.

  7. Vavoom! Hot but completely chic - that man better take you on a date night soon :)

  8. BAH! Leather chic and they are SOLD OUT! Nards!! That matte red lip is equally beautiful on you. My hubby HATES red. le sigh. He managed to voice this opinion after I bought 3-4 different shades of red. Figures. :P

  10. Get it, girl - you look like one hot mama in this outfit! I love that you went with all black with the faux leather leggings - so chic!

  11. Stunning! Just stunning! For a while I shied away from gold (in favor of white golds and silvers) jewelry, but lately I've been going for gold. Maybe it's a mix of holding on to what's left of my sun-kissed skin tones and the fall maroons that are creeping back into my outfits!

  12. you look great! i wish i didnt miss those leggings at forever21! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  13. I love that bold lip on you! I also really like your soft waves. And I so get having photoshoots interrupted. Life with kids–so crazy sometimes, but totally the best. :)

  14. Total rocker chick chic, I loved it!

  15. I love all black looks and this is no exception! Love the way you mixed different textures to really make it interesting. You look stunning!
