OOTD: An Easy, Casual Weekend Outfit

Sometimes I want to wear sweatpants all day.  Yes!  I promise.   But because that's not quite realistic on my vain little planet,  I have found the perfect weekend dupe for lazy days: leggings and flowy blouse combo.  This is a tried and tested look that is casual but still a little bit chic.  Flats complete the look.  I topped it of with a fedora but you can easily sub out this style hat for a more on-trend panama hat or accessorize with a messy braid.
Wore this to brunch at the Biltmore Hotel with my family, where my brother took my photos.

How To -  Easy Weekend Outfit: 

1.  Choose a blouse that is longer on the back end and shorter on the front end, but still long enough around that it covers a significant portion of the leggings' waistband.  Leggings are still leggings, a spandexed butt is not cute.

2.  I prefer a long sleeved blouse because you have the option of rolling / pushing up the sleeves for that cool girl vibe.  I love doing this with a light fabric; it is less structured but not sloppy.

3. I prefer leggings that bunch at the bottom, near the ankles, rather than cropped leggings (like mid-calf leggings).  Mid-calf leggings can definitely look sportier, like if you're going to go jogging.  Other cropped variations may work, depending on where they fall on the leg. 

4. A little black flat: is always chic, but really any flat will work.

5.  Minimalism: I accessorized minimally with a stack of tri colored bangles and cat eye sunglasses
