Two Teens And Their Mama: Leggings & Shop My Closet Week 18

Leggings & Shop My Closet Week 18


It's Wednesday and time for another round of Style Perspectives with my friends from The Blended Blog.  I loved all the spring plaid looks from last week. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us and joined in the fun!



Up this week are leggings and a scarf, courtesy of the lovely Katie.  Since I'm tall, and dresses can be too short on me, I'll often wear them with a pair of leggings this time of year. Which was my original plan for this style perspective.

And then I had to go to Macy's to pick up some shorts for my husband, and I accidentally saw this cold shoulder top.  It was calling my name.  I'd been looking for one that could be worn with a regular bra, and the stripes sealed the deal.  Yep, I broke my shopping ban for you, Katie!



Actually, that's a lie.  The floral flats are also new, and I bought them first. Another item I'd been searching for to brighten up my spring wardrobe.



The shirt is longer in the back, so it covers all the important areas.  I can't wait to actually wear it when the weather gets warmer.  Be sure to head to The Blended Blog to see Katie's leggings look, and find out who had the top clicked links from last week.

It was a busy work from home week, so I was loving the graphic tees, apparently. And because I like to keep it real here on the blog, I'm throwing in a picture of the day I never changed out of my workout clothes.  Oops.



Be sure to check out everyone's leggings style today, and come back next week for a blazer, tshirt, jeans & sneakers.  I hope you'll link up below, or join along on Insta/Facebook/Twitter using #theblendedblogstyle.  We'd love to see your looks!

  9. Grinned over your comment that dresses are sometimes too short. I have the opposite problem. Everything has to be shortened - I'm loving those floral flats. SO cute.

  14. You are rocking this trendy cold shoulder look! I've been on the hunt for a cold shoulder top myself. I couldn't help but smile because I am also wearing floral shoes and a J'adore graphic tee in my latest post, so it was cool to see you feature similar items this week.
