Stripes and Track Pants








There are few things that I love more than a good pair of sweats. Seriously. The minute I get home from work, I strip out of my jeans and pull on a pair of pjs; if it were up to me, I would just live in yoga pants and sweats for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, the real world sometimes calls for actual clothing, and thank goodness for tailored track pants because they are as close as it comes to running around in my pajamas. Lightweight (yay) and complete with an elastic waistband (double yay), these track pants are the perfect choice for a spring day when paired with a cozy sweater, and once it gets warm enough they are equally adorable with a loose tank. The question I am most often asked about when it comes to styling a pair of pants like the ones I am wearing is “But what do I wear them with?!” and my answer is always the same: treat them like you would a pair of jeans! Don’t be intimidated by the fact that they are not your usual denim or work pants-it’s so great to branch out and try fashions that are a little outside of your comfort zone.  I promise, you will be so pleasantly surprised when you take little fashion risks! Another little tip: tailored track pants like these always look more dressy with a pair of pointed-toe pumps, but for a more casual look try some simple flat sandals or a pair of summery wedges. So, what do you think? Track pants, yay or nay? Happy Thursday!
