WIW : Joggers

 Hi Ladies,

Now that I am only in an office two days a week, I felt I would like to add a couple of things to my wardrobe for days working at home (still running the community meal and have a couple of other projects on the go) that are comfortable and warm and can be easily spruced up with jacket/coat, scarf, footwear etc to do errands and/or school pickup on those days.

So, I bought these 'joggers' or 'sweat pants' yesterday.  I know acid wash can be divisive on the forum but I liked these immediately.  So they are sweats that are meant to look like an acid wash jean.  I am now keen to buy one or two more pairs, maybe in a black and dark wash blue denim look.  Even if I don't leave the house, I have plenty of sweaters and tops that will work and be comfortable for home but still make me feel 'put together'.  I also have my leather look slip on sneaks for really casual look.

Thought I would try them out this morning as I have some errands (a skirt to return).

Thanks for looking, what do you think?

xxx Deborah

    Oh man I love them :D Looks super with your drapey black layers.

    I think they are gorgeous! The "acid wash" actually makes them look quite luxe to my eye -- almost like crushed velvet. Really cozy, practical yet ultra stylish.

    Amazing Deborah ... You have such great taste!

  • Deb replied 5 years ago

    Very nice, very you, very practical. I really like this 'casual' look Deborah.

    Great pick, i like the acid. It kind of completes the look.

    Adding a bit of plush, comfy fun to your wardrobe is always a "do!"

  • Laura replied 5 years ago

    The acid wash pants look really cool. Big question I've got to ask you, are they also super comfy??

  • always trying replied 5 years ago

    what a great way to style them!   really super outfit. I have a pair of ligh tblue joggers that I bought for my dog training and maybe agility trials.  Now you give me an idea to try them with some sandals ant a drapey t for other casual activities this spring.

    LOVE. Totally you.

    Nice! Does the back have faux pockets?
    What ever happened to the blue topper that was advertised with an acid wash finish?

  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    Thank you!  Glad I wasn't off with the fairies thinking this was ok.

    Laura, they are comfy like PJ's :)

    AJ, the acid wash topper wasn't as acid wash in real life, more a 'washed' effect.  I loved it and I have kept it.  Just waiting for it to cool down enough to start wearing it as it's quite a heavy jacket.

    Oh, these are perfectly stylish for what you meant! You cannot go wrog Debs!

  • carolbee replied 5 years ago

    Great casual look. The sneaks look more like booties. I have decided I need a pair of "dressy/luxe" sneakers to wear with my jogger pants. Low vamp shoes just don't look right to my eye.

  • Adelfa replied 5 years ago

    You look really cute!

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    I love them, they look really comfortable plus have a fun stylish quality to them.

  • Lyn D. replied 5 years ago

    Oh, very nice the way you have styled them Deborah!

  • frannieb replied 5 years ago

    Those are amazing.

  • Olivegreen replied 5 years ago

    Darn it, second hit to the "don't like joggers" opinion today. Love them. Perfect for home and volunteer work.

  • texstyle replied 5 years ago

    I think you made a great choice - really nice with black too!

  • Rambling Ann replied 5 years ago

    Want to start exporting some of these great things you are finding?

  • rachylou replied 5 years ago

    Oh big yep! I'm really liking your style tweaks / freshners.

  • Marina replied 5 years ago

    It's the first time I see someone looking elegant in joggers. Awesome combination. I usually think in joggers as something you use inside your home only, but you totally proved me wrong :)

  • shedev replied 5 years ago

    Looks good. I like that they are a dark acid.

  • Carole replied 5 years ago

    Love! You have exquisite taste:)

  • Staysfit replied 5 years ago

    I really like them! They look great and if they are comfy for work at home they get extra bonus points! I really never thought I would be saying that about a pair of sweats but all I typically see are the kind with a sports team logo.......

    You wear them well, Deborah!
