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!
I love the idea of summer knits, though, not always so practical when you live in a hot and humid climate. To some, I may be fortunate to be able to wear these summer-weight sweaters (I think I’m still on the fence, but I do like that fact that I can still wear full-length denim in the summer now that I’m living back home in Toronto).
I wanted to post about this Wilfred Balzac sweater because I’m in love with it and many of the colors are on sale. It has a nice drapey fit with a dolman sleeve without being overwhelming on my petite frame. It is a cashmere/silk blend and not itchy at all for those of you that are sensitive to wool. Note however, that it runs on the large side. I actually went down one size for a not-too-oversized fit. I see only a small selection online, but you may find many more colors in your local store. I believe I counted five different colors including orange and lavender. The prices range from $45 on sale to $95 full price, and vary according to color. I think I may pick up another in Milk!
