Casual Days

I first discovered this fountain mural on Instagram; which I will admit was a little surreal because I frequent this park all the time, and hadn't noticed the change! If this art looks familiar, it's because Bud Snow and her work has been featured on A Mused previously. Her murals are all over town; they can be seen from the Highway 12 overpass, outside of Atlas coffee, and in Julliard park.

There are two types of people in the world when it comes to leggings: those that wear leggings as pants, and those who insist that it is never ok to wear them as such. As for me, I think I've formulated my own personal rule; as long as the crotch-seam and my derriere are covered, I believe it's perfectly acceptable to wear leggins as pants. My argument is that most denim companies nowadays sell jeans that are essentially leggings already: with 2% spandex or more, and created to be worn tight, skinny jeans basically look like a glorified legging. Plus, leggings are comfortable, and tend to not get baggy in the knees like jeans do (and baggy-in-the-knee jeans never look cute!). I like that my Spanx leggings (last seen here) add a bit of cool edge to my look. 

My sweater is a long time favorite of mine, designed and created by my friend Kathryn McCarron. I own 3 or 4 pieces of hers, and they are on constant rotation. They make getting dressed so effortless, and always give off a relaxed, effortlessly chic vibe. Plus, any time I can leave the house in a soft knitted material, leggings, comfortable shoes, and still wear a touch of lace and look put together/presentable, is a major win my book!

OluKai, a brand that I have featured previously on A Mused, was kind enough to send a pair of Pehuea slip-ons for spring/summer. I love the color! They're super comfortable and soft, and the color is bright enough to add interest to a simple outfit. Again, I'm keeping things classic and effortless this spring, and these Pehuea slides fit the bill perfectly. 

Happy Monday loves! Be sure to check back this Thursday for a spring makeup feature!

Update: for spring there is now a Spanx Cropped Legging
