Some days, seriously, you guys, I just really want to be comfortable in my clothes…like I want the closest thing to sweatpants I can find- basically just this side of socially acceptable at work. Am I alone in this? Because I just can’t fathom that I am!
Anywho, every once in a while I feel that way on a day where I have meetings, talks, etc. Well, today I had to give a talk and I felt like sweatpants didn’t give the aura of “this girl is legit.” …fair enough. I decided to compensate for my “Bridget Jones in pajamas on the couch” desire with a seriously legit grown up look. This is my best effort at a “totally legit in tweed” look because nothing says “she’s legit” quite like tweed, if you ask me. How legit? And of course, photocopying and collating stuff set the perfect legit scene to showcase the look…

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I just had to include my commuting shoes photo in this post. I still managed to get my comfort in that day! But in all seriousness, I basically never wear my heels and dress shoes outside in winter. Salt, slush and snow are a recipe for disaster. Word on the street is that you can dry clean your Uggs/winter boots. The cost varies from about $20-$40 and you can ask your local dry cleaner if they clean boots. Had I know this years ago, I would have been able to salvage my other pairs. Oh well, at least now we know that dry cleaners can clean your boots at the end of the season and have them looking brand new again for next winter.
2) I cannot say it enough- I’m all about cardigans for layering. You see the same three cardigans in basically all of my posts when I feature a cardigan. They are all the same, except for being different colors. For long term usage of cardigans, definitely consider dry cleaning. Mine are never washed in the machine, even on a delicate cycle. Even though I didn’t pay very much for them, they are still good quality and could easily lose their shape in the washing machine.
Anyone else have cleaning tips? Dry cleaned their boots?
Thank you, everyone, for stopping by! Happy almost Friday!!

I don’t have uggs but my go-to winter clean up tool for leather boots is baby wipes. Works like a charm
Great tip!! Thanks for sharing!
I love this outfit, you look great!!
Love this look!
YES to this post, and I especially love the commuter shoes photo 😉 Yesterday was such a day for me when I wanted to be comfortable more than anything. I wore these tapered, silky patterned pants that looked and felt like pajamas, and I just slapped on a blazer and pair of heels and called it work appropriate.
Love that!! Pajama-ish pants at work = dream come true!

I couldn’t agree more. I wish that fashion and comfort mixed together, but so far wearing heels are not comfortable at all. I love your outfit very nice 🙂
