Signature Look: Leggings & A Tunic

One of my signature looks is leggings and a tunic or short dress.

The dress in this outfit is another one of those items I recently “found” in my closet. It lives in my “overflow” closet (= one half of my son’s closet that is very hard to access). I bought it about five years ago at Loft. Unfortunately, it shrunk the first time I washed it, and then I put it in the dryer once by accident. It’s therefore too short to wear on its own. I didn’t wear it for a while until I realized that it is perfect paired with leggings.

The weather in Silicon Valley has been all over the place lately - from the 90s to the low 60s, including some rain and wind (which made it seem much colder; and, yes, we are weather wimps here in the South Bay...).

I wore the dress/tunic on a rainy day to run some errands. I paired it with leggings, my denim jacket, and a striped scarf.

I wore the outfit again on Mother’s Day for lots of walking and a casual brunch outing. Since we walked quite a bit before and after brunch, it made sense to wear comfortable and casual clothes. I usually spend “special days,” like Mother’s Day and birthdays doing something active with my boys, rather than getting dressed up. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy getting dressed up once in a while, but birthdays and Mother’s Day are usually reserved for doing some physical activity together.

The best part of the day: Family FaceTime with my parents in Germany!

Questions: What’s one of your signature looks? Again, one of my signature looks is definitely a tunic and leggings.
