Chill Clothes

Tank Top: Target | Zip Up Hoodie: JC Penney | Skirt Leggings: Yesstyle | Boots: Gap | Necklace: Melody Joy 1983 | Baby Onesie & Hat: Target

Being on maternity leave and all, there’s some days when I don’t even leave the house.  And on those days, I surely do not get dressed up in colored jeans, pumps, or any of those other outfits you’ve seen me wear.  But rather, I wear my “chill clothes” (term coined by moi), ya know, the clothes you wear for “chillaxing”.  Really?  Did I just say “chillaxing”?  Oh yes, I did.  They kind of have their own genre of fashion and I’ve discovered the latest trend for them – skirt leggings!  Say what?  How many times have you seen girls on the street wear leggings with a shirt that barely covers their bottom and all you want to say to them is that leggings are not a substitute for pants.  Well, their solution lies in skirt leggings, that’s right, it’s a skirt (that covers your bottom, duh) that’s attached to leggings.  I first saw this trend on Yesstyle and totally bought into it.  Or I guess you could just wear a skirt over your leggings… but hey, it’s faster to put on if it’s just one item.

What do you wear for chilling around the house?

    Seriously Sandy, you look amazing even while hanging at home! Me? I’m currently in old mens PJ flannel pants and a pink t-shirt.

    Love the skirt leggings – it’s the first time I’ve ever heard of these, but can totally see how they could revolutionize the way we think of leggings!

    I am the master of chillaxing – except for I like to call the look “hobo chic” 😉 Over-sized sweaters, comfy boots, leggings, you name it, I’ve got it!

    Super cute. I needed an idea like this. I just went from working full time, to being home with kids and I am already falling into the sweatpants/yoga pants and whatever shirt I find. For teaching, I’m miss fashion lady. Sigh.

    yeeeah leggings do not equal pants. i do wear the legging/shirt thing but just at home. and i also have slippers like that.

    you, i think, look cuter than i do when im chillaxing 😉

    skirt leggings? i’ve never heard of such a thing! but they are fantastic!! and those boots look soooo comfy.

  12. February 22, 2012 / 5:22 pm

    you look so cozy! i heart the skirt. at home i’m usually in pjs or sweats and comfy tops.

  13. February 22, 2012 / 5:41 pm

    lol i totally wear my leggings as pants. oh well. american apparel actually makes leggings that are as thick as pants so i count them 🙂

    i’m more of a big baggy sweats around the house girl. you look fab in your chillaxing clothes (ps i love the fact that you used chillaxing…embrace it!)

  14. February 22, 2012 / 8:36 pm

    u look cute in everything! i wear pj pants and shawns baggy tshirts. so midwestern. ha.

  15. February 22, 2012 / 9:58 pm

    what a cute outfit to wear just at home! you need to wear that skirt out! (i’ve never heard of skirt leggings before) i wear sweatpants and a sweatshirt at home – boring!

  16. February 22, 2012 / 9:58 pm

    As soon as I get in the house i change into my “comfy pants.” Ahhh, that means my pjs. If I am at home then I am almost for sure wearing my pjs. Comfort wins every time.

  17. February 22, 2012 / 10:27 pm

    You look so dang cute and he is just the perfect accessory to that comfy outfit! Hadn’t heard of skirt leggings– feel like I need to go try these on for myself!

  18. February 23, 2012 / 12:01 am

    My chill clothes? Pajamas. They come on as soon as I step in the door.

  19. February 23, 2012 / 5:19 am

    Your chill clothes are actually an outfit I would wear outside. My chill clothes are PJ pants and a tank. 🙂

  20. February 23, 2012 / 8:12 am

    Totally cute & cozy! When I’m at home I tend to just wear comfy shorts & aero tees…not my greatest look. I’m trying to dress in nicer things so my husband compliments me on how I look… 😉

  21. February 23, 2012 / 8:26 am

    I have to say your “chill” outfit looks so much better than any outfit I usually wear at home. Or heck! Any outfit that I usually wear out 😉

  22. February 23, 2012 / 10:29 am

    I love this outfit!! I want to wear it right now! Does it snow where you guys live? Because it does here and this seems perfect. I can’t get over how cute Austin is! I seriously want to scoop him up and give him lovin’!!! You are such a cute little mommy!!!

  23. February 23, 2012 / 3:23 pm

    aw too cute! love ALL of this! i’m either in my VS sweats or boyfriend jeans – both are my faves for lounging around!

  24. February 23, 2012 / 3:53 pm

    Comfy, cozy and cute!

  31. February 24, 2012 / 1:57 pm

    Skirt leggings, who knew? That sounds like a great invention to me! I usually wear jeans around the house, or even some good ol’ cotton pj bottoms. With slippers of course 🙂

  32. February 24, 2012 / 7:53 pm

    I have to say, I don’t look half as cute as you for chilling around the house! Love the outfit, and your little one is adorable.

  33. February 27, 2012 / 1:14 am

    I never look that put together in my “chill clothes!” Mine consist of yoga pants and a tank top most of the time.

  34. February 27, 2012 / 9:42 pm

    you do not want to see my “chill” clothes. some rarely washed sweats and a thermal. not for ANYONE’s viewing pleasure. :]

  35. February 28, 2012 / 11:12 pm

    Super cute! I wear skirts over leggings before but I’ve never heard of skirt leggings! You look a lot more put together than I ever do when I stay home all day 😉

  36. March 1, 2012 / 2:10 am

    Very cute. I love the skirt leggings!

    You look as comfy as can be! I love lounging around in an over-sized sweater and baggy sweat pants. I look like a bum, but I feel incredible, haha.

  38. March 1, 2012 / 4:12 pm
