The Sweatpants Skirt

The outfit I'm wearing today has a few new pieces to it, like the chambray shirt and the skirt. But the one I want to focus on, is the skirt. It was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend's sister, and one that I was slightly confused about when I first opened (and no, it wasn't because it was wrapped in Justin Bieber paper, there's nothing confusing about ironic wrapping paper), because I saw the elastic band typical of sweatpants, but there was not enough fabric to be sweatpants... it was a skirt! 

I've got to give it to American Apparel, they do come up with the nicest things in basic and comfy fabrics. The quality of their products always impresses me, so I was happy to try out this little skirt. And it turns out I love it! It's dressy enough I can wear it with a nice shirt and boots and rock it at work, and at the same time, it's warm and comfy like... well, sweatpants! And who doesn't want to work in sweatpants sometimes? 

Mike's sister, Lizzie, said she already has five of those in her closet, all in different colors. I see the appeal. The bad news is, I can't find this skirt on the website anymore, so if anyone sees one of those in the wild, let me know so I can try to hunt another one down for me. They are nifty! 

Skirt: American Apparel (NEW! Christmas gift) | Chambray Shirt: Old Navy (NEW!)

  1. Anita, If you can't find one to buy, I'll bet you could make your own pretty easily.

    1. True, but I'm not a big fan of sewing with jersey knit! :P
