Leggings - A Tale Of Two Shoes

Even when staying in, running to get dinner take-out or going for market pickup, you can still make the effort to look nice.  Without opportunities, our escapes are limited. However, let's not forget the skills to coordinate and heaven forbid, loose our nerve / resolve. Jeans, shorts and the latest trend, leggings, may have to be wardrobe of choice for a few more weeks. I like the casual look above.  

The only item of note above is the Dillard's "Intro Stripe Print Indigo Lyocell Long Roll-Tab Sleeve Button Down Tunic".  It is permanently reduced to $16.80 and comes in sizes S to XL.  I like the length especially for leggings.  The roll sleeves and tunic flair at the bottom gives it just the right feminine look.   

Tight jeans and leggings seem to be everywhere this spring.  I love the look and although I do not have perfect skinny legs, the right shoes can go along way to pulling the outfit together. The Trend Spotter Blog helps with selection and provides encouragement to try different looks.

As well as being quite possibly the most comfortable pants ever, leggings are also incredibly versatile. Not only are they perfect for the gym, but they can also suit a range of other outfits, including athleisure, casual and smart casual ensembles. Of course, making your leggings look great for any occasion is all about how you style them. In particular, your footwear plays an essential role in how your leggings are perceived. So, to help you look awesome while feeling comfy, we’ve rounded up a selection of the best shoes to wear with leggings. From classic sneakers to chic loafers, these footwear options have you covered almost any outing.

Here are two of the suggestions - Be sure to check all or her suggestions with some great fashion photos.

Lace-Up Sneakers
    Lace-up sneakers are without a doubt the easiest shoes to pair with leggings. Thanks to the sporty aesthetic of both leggings and sneakers, the combination works perfectly together. Although you can wear the look in a variety of ways, it appears particularly chic when styled with an athletic edge. To nail the style, start with a pair of sports leggings and minimal sneakers. Then, add a fitted, high-neck crop top and cap. You can also add jewelry, such as hoop earrings for an extra dose of attitude.

    Think heels don’t work with leggings? Think again. Pumps can actually partner perfectly with leggings for a stylish look. The key to making the outfit work is to strike a balance. As leggings and heels make your bottom half appear long and lean, try offsetting them with something looser on top. In particular, a long shirt that finishes at the top of your thighs can work fabulously with leggings and heels. You can also add a loose sweater or chunky jacket over the top if the weather’s cold.
