In an effort to not default to my white jeans or white blazer EVERY day of the Top 10 Remix challenge, I decided to give my leopard print shirt another try. In fact, I decided to wear it in a way inspired by the creator of the Top 10 Remix Challenge itself: Sarah.

This is originally my third attempt at an outfit. As I laid in bed on Monday night I thought “what am I going to wear tomorrow that ISN’T my white jeans or white blazer?” (Because I’m pretty sure I’m wearing my white blazer tomorrow…)

Le Tote had recently sent me a pair of ponte ankle zipper legging pants with the instructions to throw out the rule that leggings are not pants. Well, I thought, even though I don’t agree why not give it a try? So I tried them on with this shirt and crewneck sweater and heels. Which I wore around the house as I made breakfast and packed my lunch.

And realized that even ponte ankle zipper leggings are NOT PANTS and that I felt really, really uncomfortable. So I swapped the crewneck sweater for this cardigan but the cardigan wasn’t long enough to fully cover my butt. I thought about my long black cardigan but the navy and black wasn’t working for me this morning and it didn’t occur to me to try my long tan cardigan.  At this point I was running late so I decided just to use Sarah as my inspiration and throw on  jeans and my red flats.

This shirt still feels too voluminous but at least I didn’t spend the entire day tugging my shirt down over my butt. Win some, lose some, you know?

    Zipper leggings that should be treated as pants? Yeah, I’m with you on that one, I wouldn’t be comfortable with my butt exposed!

    I love the pops of red with this outfit! It has only been recently that I’ve started treating my purses as accessories. I always used to use just a plain black bag, but now I’m getting fancier options.

    So I’m not sure if I missed something, but I don’t see the winner of your giveaway post on the original post? It just says that the contest is no longer accepting entries?

    I gasped in horror at reading that Le Tote advised ANYONE to “throw out the rule that leggings are not pants.” I followed that link to view these zipper leggings and all I gotta say is, TMI. I am firmly on team Leggings are NOT Pants.

    P.S. I love the bright crossbody bag and flats with this outfit! 🙂
