Comfort Creature

Lately, I have found myself in a rut.  I find an outfit I like and I just wear it over and over and over.  This outfit is a great example of that.  I am not kidding when I tell you that I've worn this at least once if not twice a week since I bought it. Ok, maybe three times a week!
Tank: Yummie Tummie; Leggings: Marika
Chambray top: Hester & Orchard via TJMaxx
Sweater: Cynthia Rowley
Earrings: Blue Nile; Necklace: BaubleBar
Boots: Ugg
My black leggings gave out on me over a year ago and at the time, I thought it was just as well because leggings were my easy way to pretend I was dressed.  I know that they are really only supposed to be worn when you are working out, but I have a mind of my own.  I hadn't replaced mine because I have black yoga pants and multiple capris for walking around the block.  Well, a couple of weeks ago, I was shopping at TJ Maxx for a chambray shirt and I saw these leggings on the clearance rack for $7, so I figured why not?  I also found this chambray shirt for $10 and the sweater for $24 on that same trip.  Yup, the whole outfit was $41.  And now I've completely reverted to wearing leggings as pants. :(
Bag: Chloe
I wore it on the plane to Las Vegas for my birthday and then the whole first day I was there.  The picture below is a self-portrait of me at the Wynn Hotel & Casino waiting for the elevator because I forgot my camera at home and only had my phone.  
This one is of me and my sisters and my friends when we went to try to watch Anna Karenina at the Angelika in Plano. We failed.  Online, it said that the movie started at 12 Noon, when we arrived the manager said it started at 12:40, when we tried to buy the tickets, the first showing wasn't until 1:30 and people had to go to work, pick up their baby, and meet up with other friends for other movies.  So even though we were sad, we were happy to see each other!
What is your comfort outfit? How do you break the rut?


  1. I could live in leggings and uggs!

  2. I have fallen into a winter rut as well...for me it's a pair of jeans and a black sweater. I chuck it up to the cold weather and the fact that if I wore a skirt right now and waited for the train I'd probably get frostbite.

  3. i think leggings as pants are fine as long as one covers up their goods! i can see why you've been wearing this outfit so much. the layering and contrast of colors looks good. my comfort outfit is my boyfriend jeans and black tee with a scarf.

  4. OMG,this is so amazing,I love the combination!

    @Bessie, a pair of jeans and a black sweater sounds like heaven!
