weekend happenings + there is a possibility i might offend you.

  cardi: c/o Boxie Tees / Paris tee: Urban Outfitters / scarf: c/o Ecoshag / leggings: Forever 21 / watch: c/o Feral Watches / rain boots: Hunter Boots (gift from my sister and brother-in-law)

so last week was a whirlwind and a half and i loved every bit of it. the kinds of days where they are full and that made you feel like you earned your weekend. and the weekend was just as perfect, spending lots of it with the husband...including a breakfast run to Mickey Dee's (becoming a weekend tradition), cool evening walks, and catching up on our favorite tv shows. i also got the chance to grab coffee with one of my super duper close friends and like it happens every single time, we never have enough time to catch up and laugh and drink our coffees. those are the best kind of coffee dates, aren't they? 

and let's discuss last Saturday's uniform (the one in the above photos). 

1. it actually was raining when i wore these rainboots - raining cats and dogs throughout Atlanta. on my way to my coffee date, i had to pull over to the side of the road 'cause i could barely see the street. and hey, not like anyone needs know whether or not it was raining, but i know some people have criticized me on an oh-so-unfortunately popular blog about my wearing rainboots when it's not raining. but even if it wasn't raining, i love my red hunter boots and would have probably ran around town wearing these bad boys. they keep me dry and warm (it's actually autumn now - yipee!) and make me happy.

plus they are the best thing ever for some puddle-jumping action. the end.

2. leggings are actually pants. shock! aw! gasp! yeah, yeah. it seems like this time of the season, people tweet or facebook the status about leggings not being pants. but whatevs. as long as you cover your boot-aaaay and hide any awkward butt-crack action, i think anybody can get away with it.

and i might have just officially offended half of you by that paragraph. movin' on.

3. scarves and cardi wearing season. F I N A L L Y ! (and it def helps that i get to finally wear this chunky, amazingly warm infinity scarf from my sweet friend, Tania of Ecoshag!) i seriously cannot tell you how happy this makes me. and you are all probably sick of me talking about the weather around here but it really is about time. the rain all summer long and the sticky, humidity was just getting so old. i was just getting so tired of being all layered up and then having to practically strip while out and about doing errands. 

first would go the scarf. then the cardi. then the pants. just kidding. i'm part of the never-nude club, so you know how that goes. (just gotta find me some blue paint and rip me more denim shorts...)

much love.
{happy tuesday, friend.}

  5. Personally, I cannot do leggings as pants and I think some can rock them as pantaloons, like you! Not offended.:)

  13. I love those boots!! (I think it's completely fine to wear rain boots even when it's not raining!!)

    I personally don't like to wear leggings as pants and I really hate it when I see people wearing them as such but I love this outfit on you because your tee + cardigan is long enough to cover you up!! I don't really like it when people wear leggings as pants with short/cropped tees!! Ugh!! :/

    PS I LOVE your makeup!! xoxo

  15. Love this outfit, it's just so simple and fun. And those red boots are the perfect amount of color in this outfit.

  16. I definitely agree-as long as your tush is covered, leggings are fine!! Not a fan of butt showing leggings wearers though! And those boots are too cute-you should wear them allll the time!

  17. I so agree about leggings. I don't want to see anyone's but but as long as that's covered then it's all good! I've been wearing leggings like CRAZY!

  18. i agree with the leggings bit - but girls here are migrating towards TIGHTS as 'pants'. maybe i'm getting old, but no.

    ReplyDelete
  19. hahaha YES! leggings ARE pants. tights are not! loved this post. rock those boots!

  20. For me, it's more like leggings CAN act as pants so long as, like you said, there's nothing awkward going on. How you're wearing them works -- cardigan covers the back and the shirt obscures the front. Heck yes for cozy fall weather!
    Let those haters hate, Illy. They're just jelly of your cute rainboots!
    Yes yes yes for cardi + scarf season~~!

  21. Okay, okay, okay. I MEANT (on Facebook) that you (not YOU) could wear leggings as long as your tush is covered. ;) Because, seriously - there are some tushes that do not need to be seen - like mine, ahem. YOU ARE ADORABLE!

  22. I just like that you eat McD's unapologetically. Being in the yoga world, I've been indoctrinated to think that McD's is like, the most awful thing ever. It hasn't stopped me from sneaking it from time to time. I mean, those hash browns I had Monday morning were freaking delicious.
