Fashion Friday- Red Leggings

Hi gorgeous readers and happy Fashion Friday!

I apologize if this is the second time you are seeing this post this week, I messed up Tuesday and somehow had two posts publish at the same time.  It was basically a draft at the time, so I’m sorry if it didn’t make sense.  I’d blame the computer, but I think it was actually human error- DOH!  So sorry about that.  Thanks for hanging with me.

On another blog note, Don’t forget about The Best of the Blogs linkup on Monday!  Linkup your top post of the month.  Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Read this!

Other than my screw up, what a great week! I had dinner with my local blogging buddies Susanna and Jaime AND my in-laws stopped over for a night on there way from Colombia to Pittsburgh.  I’ve been eating all sorts of fabulous dinners this week.  It’s been a nice way to break up the winter monotony!  This weekend, I’m helping with my goddaughter Isabella’s 9th birthday party.  Lot’s of fun up in here!

But it is Fashion Friday after all, let’s talk shopping. 🙂

When I was in Charlotte the other week I stopped by the fancy mall to walk around Nordstom for a few minutes.  I love all the local stores in my town, but there is something comforting about walking into one of my all-time favorite stores.  I’ve always liked that I can look at all the super fancy stuff, but still find some nice pieces in my budget.  I also like to see what’s currently on point fashion wise!

I looked through the sale rack and found this adorable and versatile long sleeve black and white tee.  I thought it would be fun to mix up my regular winter uniform of leggings, tunics and sweaters.  It’s a great tee because it’s long enough to wear with leggings.  It’s even cut with a high-low hem so the back is even longer.

I paired the top with my red leggings!  I’ve had these in my closet for quite some time.  I don’t wear them all the time, but it’s a fun and easy way to mix up a look.

The finishing touch is my super warm and cozy drop sleeve cashmere sweater.  I picked this up on an Ann Taylor clearance sale a few years ago too.

So basically this outfit is a lesson in making the clearance rack work for you! Haha! My favorite way to shop.

But, if you like shopping for the comfort of your own home, here are some links to get you started.  I included links to this perfect BP Nordstom tee.  The black and white stripe one is sold out, but the solids are still available.  I like the fit and versatility of it so much, I’m considering buying  a few more in solid colors.  The price is right too.

Shop the Look:

Red Leggings: INC Macy’s, Similar HERE <– Free People, HERE <True Religion on sale for less than $90 or HERE <– H&M less than $20!

Striped Shirt: BP (Juniors) at Nordstrom’s, Same shirt in solid colors HERE (found the stripes on the clearance rack), Similar HERE <– less than $30 or HERE

note: The BP tee arms are cut slim. Fits me perfectly.

    I’m not sure I can pull of red leggings, but you make me want to try! So cute!

    that is a great pop of color! Looking good lady!

    Ohhh the red makes the whole outfit just POP!! Brown boots go with just about anything, right?

      They do! I love my boots (clearly I wear them in every other fashion post- haha!)

    Yay for red leggings! I actually bought a pair (they were $5 and I couldn’t resist!) late last year, and if I can find them anytime soon, I’m definitely gonna have to break em’ out again! Your outfit is super cute! :]

      Deal! How you you resist those. Hope they turn up soon.

    Looks great on you and I love the red! But I don’t know if I could pull off the red leggings!

    I am not a big fan of red but you pull it off great, love the look!

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:49 pm - Reply

      Thanks Ivanna. I’ve always been a fan of wearing the color for some reason.

    Very stylish! I have tons of legging with wild prints but they’re just for running. I haven’t ventured beyond black in “civilian” life. Happy Friday!

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:45 pm - Reply

      Haha! Love the way you put that. I can be more adventurous with my running clothes too– lots of neon 🙂

    Love the whole outfit, esp. the red leggings! Good luck with the bday party this weekend!

    Those leggings are so cute and black and white striped shirts are my favorite. I always feel so French in them!

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:44 pm - Reply

      Me too! I always gravitate towards them when I shop and forget I have 5+ at home already- haha 🙂

    Love that combo! I have a pair of bright crimson leggings with a shade of magenta in them instead of a true red that I love to pair with neutrals. Have a great weekend!

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:43 pm - Reply

      That sounds like a great combination. I love an unexpected pairing like that.

    I just got a pair of red leggings from I am so excited to wear them while I run and also out and about! And the name of the print? Reddy to Run! I can’t stand it!

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:43 pm - Reply

      Haha! What a fun name. I’m a sucker for things with cute names… especially nail polishes 🙂 Thanks for stopping by this week! Hope to see you again.

    I love the pop of red. I feel like I never look good in red, though! Anything red I ever buy I end up getting rid of. You can totally pull it off though!

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:29 pm - Reply

      I’ve always been drawn to it! It’s a fun color to wear.

  17. Annmarie February 26, 2016 at 8:46 am - Reply

    Um, I need that outfit! SO cute!

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:28 pm - Reply

      Thanks Annmarie! It would look super cute on you.

  18. Jill February 26, 2016 at 8:15 am - Reply

    I love those red leggings! This is such a cute relaxed look!

      Thanks Jill! It’s perfect for this time of year.

  19. I live in leggings and yoga pants but don’t have any red ones cute idea!

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:27 pm - Reply

      I bet they would look fabulous on you. Who needs real pants when you can wear leggings 🙂

  20. [email protected] February 26, 2016 at 7:49 am - Reply

    That outfit looks great on you. I don’t think I could pull the red ones off though. I only have boring black ones.

  21. Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy February 26, 2016 at 6:39 am - Reply

    Oh I am loving these! I practically live in leggings, but they are always just plain black ones 🙁

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:25 pm - Reply

      It’s fun to mix it up sometimes! I have some grey/ black pattern ones that would be a nice touch if you don’t want to go full on red.

    Great overall look ( especially the leggings )
