Wardrobe Challenge # 1 - Mix at least 2 textures



I came across this interesting challenge on Who What Wear recently and must say I was intrigued. After much consideration (I made it sound like starting a mortgage or something) I have decided to take it and do it in my own pace.  I can't do all 30 of them in 30 days but I'll try as many as I can. The first one is 'Mix at least 2 textures in your look' and here I was in a leather jacket, French terry cloth sweatpants and glitter dust embellished t.shirt. The jacket has been featured on the blog many times but I just got this sweatpants in January from ShopBop.  I am in love with this pants!  I know, I know, I used to say NO sweatpants outside the comfort of my own home but this one is not the usual sweatpants.  They are tapered with the right amount of slouch and yet oh, so comfortable! The sweatpants trend has elevated its status to another whole level and I was an instant convert :)

  5. I love it! I'm all for casual, and I really am liking the slouchy pant trend. I haven't tried it yet… but it might be something as I ease into this spring (if it ever arrives - we just got another foot of snow!). And as for the coat, please keep wearing it - it's something I love to see on you and I don't think I'd ever take it off!

  18. No surprise these pants are comfy, they look just like that. I like the way you tied up your t-shirt, cool. You look so sporty and so full of energy in this outfit.

    1. Haha! The energy was high for the wrong reason. I was on the way out to have my blood drawn out for visa purposes.. I am not a fan of needle so, my heart was pumping not for the right reason ;)

  19. I enjoy this look, casual but you're very chic in wearing the clothes. Nice to see a simple pair of sweatpants gets "glammed" up by choosing the right pieces to go with it.

  21. This is the epitome of casual cool and I especially love the color of your Balenciaga and tied up Tee! I love doing a lot of different mix-ups too and really enjoyed your leather/terry combo! Btw how do you like living in Dubai? Lots of friends visit for trips and they really enjoyed their vacations there; it's on my list to see as well! XOXO, Elif

    1. Hi, Elif! Thanks for dropping in! I am a fan of your svelte body.. you really look good. Anyway, Dubai is THE place to visit. I am not going to comment on living here, that's another story but if you are planning for a vacation, this is the place. It is truly the center of world now. Let me know if you need some tips about travelling here :)

  26. A Very chic casual look. I want to re-create it. I definitely pinned it. Sweatpants are not just for the house and going to the gym anymore. I love those Burgundy Converse Sneakers also and the beautiful Lush matching Leather Bag. Stunning!!

    Have a Lovely Week!! Looking forward to seeing more of these challenges you will be trying. Ada. =)

  27. That is such an effortlessly chic outfit! I really love how cozy and cozy it looks ( and must be), I don't wear many sporty items, but I would surely love to recreate a similar look! :)
    And this challenge looks awesome, I'll take a closer look at it & who knows maybe I'll give it a shot too! :)

  32. LOVE it! So chic yet casz, the epitome of hi-low dressing done well. I've really been into sweatshirts lately, though I don't look as chic as you. Comfort and ease is the story of my life now! I've even thought of getting some sweats, but again, I wouldn't look this good in them. :)
