Friday Fun Stuff Fashion Basics: Flattering Leggings and a Chic Comfortable Loafer


I am so happy loafers are back.  Here are my picks for those that are not only on point but practical if you like to do any walking!

Black leggings are part of my uniform.  I wear them all the time.  At my age a legging has to have some substance to sort of "tuck everything in".  These are my favorites if you like a little support. Note the Target Sarah Blakely version is $24.99. I just picked them up and they are fabulous!!

The Six Most Flattering Leggings of 2015



I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am joining Heather and Jennifer for their Lifestyle Linkup over at Stylemindchiclife.com.

    1. Nancy I feel like t-shirts need to be the same as well...the thicker the better!! Those flimsy numbers are better for the younger ladies!!

  5. I like to wear legging and a long sweater on airplane rides...so not too tight. Thanks for the suggestions. Loafers are so good for these hills...and I'm going to NYC. I need to go shopping! At least online :) Love your fashion posts.

  6. This is a fantastic list, Cindy! I'm going to have to check out your legging favorites. I've worn the spanx brand but some of the others look interesting too. It's always good to hear reviews from my friends.
    Thanks so much for bringing your style to our #stylefocus Lifestyle Linkup today!

  7. I'm a huge fan of leggings. And as said, the thicker the better! They are the most comfortable way to bop around running errands for me, so long as the top is long enough, as Contessa says!

  8. The Contessa knows best!! Check out the Target Sarah Blakely version. They are a steal!!

  15. Cindy,
    I love leggings and loafers. I'm so happy to hear the loafers are coming back. I love my black loafers and have kept them even though it's been a couple of years since I've worn them. Once we're firmly into fall weather I'll pull them out. I always enjoy your great fashion posts...it's nice to read a post from someone closer in age. :-)
    xo,
    Karen

  17. I love loafers and just bought a pair from Madewell. As far as leggings I really can't figure out how to wear them. If I put them with a long white shirt I feel like a nurse:)
