Leggings As Pants?

I usually spend large chunks of my weekend catching up on everything that I've put off during the week.  Like laundry.  So when I decided to wash ALL of my jeans, I had nothing to wear for the outfit I was planning on!  Duh.  (does anyone say that anymore?) So I cautiously pulled out... the leggings.  I'm always kinda been afraid of wearing them... they look good on most other people, but I feel awkward with them!  Leggings as pants?  Am I really going to go there?  Well, many people wear them like that and they look fine.... So here is the result.  Not bad.  Looks comfortable, that's for sure.

sweater: Sonoma
leggings: Target
scarf: Target
boots: Civico 10
boot socks: Target
clutch: Deux Lux
ring: Stella & Dot
necklace: American Eagle

And what was inside that clutch?  A book of course!  I felt kind of like Rory Gilmore, stuffing my purse with a book.  But the book I happened to be reading for class fit perfectly.  So why not?

^Good read by the way.

In other news, how is the holiday shopping going for everyone?  I have yet to even start!!  Eeek!  I have taken the first step in writing down ideas for people though.  Now I just have to work up the nerve to tackle Somerset Collection with all of the mad shoppers.  Of course, that will happen after I've done all the online shopping that I possibly can!  Funny, for a girl who LOVES new clothes, I really hate shopping.

Have a great day!


  1. adorable look! this is perfect for fall

  2. Love this look Julia! The boots and the socks are so cute!

  3. I love this look! I am okay with leggings as long as your top covers your bum somewhat. If it doesn't, sometimes it looks like girls forgot to finished getting dressed. You pull your outfit off nicely!

  5. Yay! I really like this outfit. I have wore leggings as pants a few times but only if my shirt mostly covers my hiney. I love your sweater and you clutch *swoon*
