What Do You Wear For Saturday Errands?

Well, what do you wear to run your weekend errands?  

If you read me my blog at all you probably know that I am not really the "jeans & t-shirt type" so naturally my weekend look is a little different.

Today, I spent a great deal of time Christmas shopping in addition to the usual stops at the grocery store and dry cleaner.  To finish the day I met some girlfriends for dinner, drinks and gossip.  Fun.  It's tough to beat a day of shopping and time with good friends.

Speaking of Christmas, a fairly large box arrived from mom sometime Friday afternoon but she left me strict instructions not to open it until Christmas.  Ugh!  Mom always sends me something for Christmas but this is by far the biggest box that has had my name on it since I was about 15 years old.  I feel a bit like I am 9 years old again each time I walk by it.  Hee Hee

Okay, on to what I wore...

As I have commented on many blogs, my favorite Saturday look is simply a great sweater and a pair of my leather pants.  Easy.  Comfortable.  Just a bit of edge.  Sometimes I go with the jeans but this time I opted for the slacks for a "dressier" look.  Believe it or not, this really is how you will catch me most Saturdays during the cooler months of the year.


I wish the pictures did the color of the sweater a little more justice as it really is not gray at all.  It is actually a lovely olive shade and quite complimentary to the black slacks, at least in my opinion.

To finish off the look I opted for a pair of my short boots.  I like my shoes but I am certainly a "boot girl", too.

So there you have it, simple.  No bright colors.  No "girly" textures or patterns.  I think the leather pants do enough on their own so when it is a simple day of errands, finished with a relaxing dinner and drinks with friends I like to keep is easy and comfortable.

Well, what do you think?

  1. ive never owned a pair of leather pants, so its definitely not something that i've ever worn to run my errands! i love to still look super cute on my days off because its the one time i CAN wear jeans! so i throw on some skinnies, a hot top and some boots and i'm good to go! i don't wear T shirts.... ever!

    sharde @ the style projects

  2. I love the color combo here and I'm also a fan of something simple, chic and comfortable. Perfect outfit.

  3. Well gray and black are the colors I wear the most, so naturally I love it. I need a good pair of leather pants. I am too cheap to buy some though. lol

  4. I hate when I'm instructed not to open a gift but I have to walk by it every day! I'm way too impatient. Anyway, great look! I actually went on a search for leather pants this weekend and then got sidetracked by a sale at Banana Republic. I guess there is always next weekend :)

  5. This look is simple, comfortable and put together. A perfect weekend look!

  6. Your look is much better than mine! I go for leggings, boots and a long sweater... it's basically sweats :)


  7. Love that you went out shopping in leather pants! I dress up to go shopping, why not make it fun while I'm out.
