Sometimes, there’s nothing like comfort and ease of sweatpants. While most envision sweatpants with slippers and an oversized hoodie, I find there is a way to style them and look chic rather than sleepy.

Today I opted for sweats with zippers because I think they offer a little something extra to the basic knitwear. Paired with wedges and a simple v-neck, I am ready to take on the day–or curl up for a nap! 🙂 And don’t you know I’m still rocking the clutch!

    I couldn’t agree more. As chic and fancy as us bloggers love to dress, a comfy pair of sweats can melt a girl’s heart. You’ve made this usually über casual look still polished which is key!
