How I Wear Flats For Fall

Comfort

it’s a good thing!

the scoop

Since we’ve have been spending so much time here in the city I have been wearing comfy flats a lot. You can see the stairs in our house and imagine the old walking into a room and forgetting why you’re there scenario. So I am running up and down those steps it seems a million times a day. Plus I take our dogs for a least two walks a day to get them out in the fresh air. Also we do a lot more running around here, like going to Costco (so much that the greeter says when we leave, “see you tomorrow!” Ha Ha.) It seems we always forget something we need and my husband loves Costco. We also love to go to thrift shops and explore the area. Anyway flats are in order for a lifestyle like this.

my look

The problem for me with flats is I don’t like the look as much as heels. So I am always on the look for a fabulous versatile flat. I found these a week ago and wear them almost daily. They have a quilted leather look that is so fun and they are black so they go with everything. I wear them with leggings, jeans, and even casual dresses. They slip on and off easily which is nice too.

In this look I also dug out something from my closet that I bet most everyone has. My leather scuba jacket. This thing has been in my closet for at least ten years. I felt like it was out of style the last few years but knew it was a classic that would show up on trend again. This is another basic that you can wear casual or dress up. Obsessed!

I wore my pixi pants from Old Navy (Spring find) and a black cami. The necklace is an old find from a local consignment shop. I have to go visit that shop again now that I am in town.

good for the glutes!

outfit details

I’m wearing Pixi pants from Old Navy. Linked exact style and they come in many colors and prints. Wouldn’t the floral be fun for fall? I’m linking exact flats by Steve Madden. Love these so much I think will get a second color. I also linked my favorite cami from Express. I have these in so many colors. They are lined and very well made. I got my jacket several years ago at Overstock.com. It is a beautiful lambskin leather and very well made. I found similar ones there to link.

  • I am so excited to try out recipes that were sent to me in my last post. Thank you to those of you who sent them!

  • Yesterday I did HIIT outside with a run. I have an app that tells me when to run and when to walk. I run as fast as I can on the run parts. Awesome workout and it was so beautiful outside that I got my runners high in 30 minutes! Today is YMCA day where I do a weight circuit. I use the machines made for children or smaller people so they fit me just right and I move from machine to machine to get my heart rate up. I walk on the treadmill first for 20 minutes to warm up. Forty minutes and I am done!

  • I’m meeting one of my blog readers for coffee tomorrow and can’t wait. She recognized me in a restaurant in our mountain home town a summer ago and we hit it off right away. She lives near me in the city so we are going to get coffee and catch up! I’ve met so many wonderful people through this blog. That’s one of my favorite parts of blogging!

  • Is anyone else spending a lot of time thinking about the big bag of Halloween candy in the cupboard?

  • Today I have to pick up dry cleaning, confirm with the gutter company and plan our trip to the mountains. I also have to schedule vet appointments, go to the Y and oh well the list goes on. Ha ha!

My 2nd Most Worn Pants

More Of The Pixi Pants

This time in a leopard print!

the scoop

I can't seem to get enough of my Pixi pants! I wear them the most next to my jeans. They are so chic and comfortable and versatile! Just right for all seasons but especially spring and summer. On Wednesday I showed you my mustard colored pair and now I am styling my leopard ones. I will wear these with a cute black front tie tee and white tees this summer. I wear heels, flats and sneakers with them too.

my look

I got these pants last fall and decided to make them work for spring too. Read how I styled a mustard pair here. I added this amazing peplum tunic that was all the rage last summer. It is such a pretty top that I have it in five colors! It is easy on the pocket book too. I found it for you on sale and will link up below. There are several colors available. These pants are also available in multiple colors for spring. I carried my black bag and tied a scarf to it for a little more pizzazz! Platform sandals and big hoop earrings completed this look!

Here are several options for such fun looks! I love them all! Obsessed with these pants!

Story Of The Traveling Pixi Pants

Pixi Pants for summer

My second most worn pants other than jeans!

the scoop

Last fall I saw these adorable Pixi pants at Old Navy and thought a pair in mustard and a pair in leopard would be perfect for early fall looks. And I was right I was able to put together pretty outfits with them (see leopard here). 

Fast forward to spring and I am seeing these pants again only in fun spring colors. But I thought with the right top and shoes I could make these colors work for spring too. No need to buy more although I am tempted because these pants are so comfy.

my look

For this look I pulled out this fun top from my closet that I hadn't had a chance to wear yet. The pattern and style was perfect for these pants. Next I added my platform sandals and a brilliant blue bag and I was almost ready. The last touch were my royal blue tassel earrings. Fun, fun look that will be on repeat this summer.

Summer colors
