I didn’t think I would ever give in to wearing joggers, but the more that I saw them online, the more I was willing to try them. They are a great alternative to that weekend denim. And like denim (and well, everything else), not all joggers are created equal.
I like these particular joggers for the light to mid-weight cotton/canvas material, oversized pockets, and wide elasticized cuff while not running overly large in the width. They run a bit large, so they are sagging a bit on me here, but even so, the length works well on a petite such as myself. And actually, would look even better if it sat a bit higher on the ankle on someone taller like the model.
I have yet to meet a jogger I would be comfortable wearing to work, however, despite their casual nature, they pair well with everything from oversized sweaters to button-downs to simple tees. I already wore the heck out of these during the holidays, and when spring and summer rolls around, I can guarantee they will be one of my go-tos for off-duty wear.
A little slow getting into the swing of things, but I think I’m finally ready to get going! We’ve been fortunate to be having a relatively mild winter this year. Luckily that means that I some days I can wear outfits that are more “fall-like”, and get away with things I’d normally not be able to get away with during this time of year, like say, sneakers without socks! Yes, really!
The other night, I took the puppy outside to do his business and I legitimately angry that it was still this insanely cold with spring (supposedly) approaching. Of course, my tolerance for cold has gone done quite a bit since living in the south, but still, I’m sure all of my fellow Canadians share the same sentiment.
I can’t purport to say that my winter outfits are super creative right now given how cold it is. And admittedly, I’m somewhat a creature of habit when it comes to clothing. I don’t really *need* a lot of stuff (“want” being a completely different story, of course). If I love it, I’ll wear it literally every day, if possible. A good example of that is this Aritzia camo button down that has been part of my weekend uniform since I purchased it back in November. The thick cotton twill material is great for layering and it’s puppy-proof to boot. Pair it with a pair of jeans or leather leggings and a pair of boots (today, my lace-up combat boots) and I’m good to go.
