This post is dedicated to all the ladies out there who only truly like wearing pants if they’re of the yoga variety. If you’re in this pants-hating club with me, you probably understand the struggle between comfort and style. For working ladies, it’s also difficult finding the balance between comfort and professionalism. Luckily, there are so many options where you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other! Joggers, skirts, and culottes are alternatives to name a few.
If you have a good memory you might recall I wore this tank and joggers combo in an old post! By swapping out flat sandals for heels and putting a cardigan over the tank, it’s easily work appropriate. To make it a little more dressy I would wear a blazer instead of a cardigan. If heels aren’t practical for you, I would go with some strappy pointed flats like these. The most crucial tip I have is to avoid anything that resembles sweatpants or cotton. Go for something lighter so the fabric looks more like a dress pant than pajamas.
Outfit details: Banana Republic tank (an embellished button down like this would be cute too!) / Splendid joggers / Abound heels (this cutout version in black is cute!) / Nordstrom BP Cardigan / Rebecca Minkoff bag / Michael Kors Darci watch
Anyone else so excited for the long weekend?? I had a lot going on this week and although a lot of it was fun stuff, I’m feeling kind of exhausted! So looking forward to enjoying some sunshine (with SPF of course) and good food.
Speaking of food, I was going to share my Blue Apron experience in a blog post but now I have very few positive things to say. Essentially, I find the service to be overpriced and impractical. Although it’s fun to try some new recipes, the portions are pretty mediocre. If I put that much effort into a meal, I would want at least one portion of leftovers but so far out of 6 dishes, there was only one noodle dish that made leftovers. I honestly think you could buy all of the ingredients at a grocery store for cheaper as well. The only plus side is there’s no waste since Blue Apron sends you everything in the exact amount.
Last Saturday, they accidentally shipped us a new box of meals and we got charged the full $60 for it. They eventually refunded us but it’s a little frustrating that it even happened in the first place. We had canceled our membership entirely and then they sent us meals we didn’t really want, for a price higher than what we had paid for the first promotional box, and on a date that was inconvenient for us! Have you had a better experience with Blue Apron? I’d like to hear, even if you had a bad experience!
Anyways- off to enjoy the sunshine this weekend! Jared and I are continuing our new year’s resolution to be more spontaneous so we’re not sure exactly where we’ll end up this weekend :) I’ll be sure to share next week!
