I don't know about y'all, but leggings are basically one of my favorite things in the world, and I would pick them over jeans 95% of the time. My personal rule for wearing leggings as pants is to pair them with a top that covers my bottom, but I've noticed recently that I don't have many tops that aren't super casual to pair my leggings with.
Enter my favorite trend for 2017 - the long vest. It's the perfect piece for when you want to wear leggings as pants with a certain top, but that top isn't necessarily long enough. The vest only shows the top portion of your top, so you could even pair it with a crop top if you wanted and still be completely covered! The thing I love most about this trend is that I can wear leggings as pants and be totally work appropriate! Just opt for a thicker pair of leggings, and you're all set. I'm also really looking forward to pairing it with an athleisure look and with leather leggings. It's a piece that can do just about anything!
I'm really optimistic that there will be a little more fashion content on here in 2017, so if there are things that you want to see (i.e. examples of business casual, business professional, work to play, etc.), please let me know! When my brother and I went to shoot these photos, we scouted out a ton of new locations, and I can't wait for y'all to see them and to also see a little piece of where I come from.
Today I'm off to the Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area for a late celebration of my brother's 16th birthday! I'm so excited about a couple of days out of the office and for time spent with family. If you want to follow along on the adventures, I'll be snapping my favorites (Snapchat username is Seersuckersass) and hopefully sharing them with y'all on the blog, as well.
Happy Wednesday! What is the one item you see yourself wearing nonstop in 2017?
