So I bought these sweater leggings at Target a few months back. Ah, who am I kidding? I bought them in every color available. Scratch that. I didn't buy one of the color options. That's what's called will power, people.
I've really been loving the idea of pattern/color on my pants instead of my tops. It's like a mullet for your clothes. Business on top, party on the bottom.
I feel like the majority of my tops are solids, so I was getting bored with my outfit choices. Adding these leggings has breathed new life into my closet. (Plus, I'll take any excuse to wear pants with an elastic waistband.)
Since I've been having fun mixing and matching, I thought I'd share today how versatile one pair of leggings can be, even if they're in a bold print. These days, you can usually find me in one of these three outfits.

First up, we've got a look that's a little more bohemian. I bought these booties after I rounded up my stock of leggings. I wanted something easy that I could slip on and were comfortable. These are great, but you may need to add a gel insert (or two) since there isn't much support.

I really love the peach running through these leggings, so that's the color I tend to pick up to match in my tops. I found this hoodie at Old Navy a few months ago and love how it switches up the feel of the leggings. Now it looks like I'm super athletic running around store to store.

Oh, if only I could braid my hair! That would have really made this outfit pop even more. A nice side braid or some sort of braided bangs. Believe me, I've watched all the YouTube videos and pinned all the tricks on Pinterest. It's such an easy concept. But alas, my fingers just aren't able to perform any braided beauty. To be fair, I only give myself one chance, because then my arms get tired and I lose all interest.
Anyways, I like this outfit with its mix of pattern and bright pop of color. Perfect to make you feel happy despite the frigid temperatures.
How do you like to mix and match items in your wardrobe to keep things fresh?
Anyone else feel like just wearing sweatpants all day since it's so cold out?
