I made a quick dash to the mall to return 5 pairs of leggings for my tween along with a few other items that didn’t quite work out. I think we have tried about every legging out there; too baggy, too short, super tight, you get the idea. I found the Nordstrom ‘go-to’ legging HERE | $28.00-success! She wears a 14/16 in girls department, I got the XS in the ‘go-to’ and done! Another great tween legging is the Tucker and Tate high waist legging HERE. | $24.00.
Legging box checked, I had time to grab a latte, take in the festive decor at Nordstrom and try few things on.
Best gift ever – extra time!
My first stop was the sleepwear/hosiery department (remember I was looking for leggings). Once there, I spotted a few new items by Hue and Lysse to try on for myself.
These claim to have light control. I thought it was more than light. They suck you in, are nice and thick, highwaisted and once on are not going anywhere! You can read more HERE
These quilted leggings appear to have disappeared into cyber space! They were online earlier today and I tried them on in the store on Thursday. Since I can’t find a link for you, this label includes the style number in the event you want to call a store or online customer service to order them. Note, I sized up from my regular size small to a medium in order to get these over my calves.
UPDATE!!! THE LINK REAPPEARED TONIGHT AND NOW THEY ARE ON SALE, HERE | NOW $45.56
Sale Alert! A blog favorite, the Hue ‘ultra’ wide waistband legging is currently being priced matched at 15% off HERE | now $30.60, in 3 colors
As much as I love to dress up, when I get home I want some cozy, cute lounge wear. I tried on quite a few bottoms, but these were my favorites.
The ‘best boyfriend” pant was a winner for me as well. SUPER soft and comfy HERE | $38.00
Retailers traditionally start to clear their inventory on sleepwear and lounge wear anytime from now on through the month. If you have your eye on something, keep a look out as markdowns have begun already! For all Make + Model lounge items click HERE.
This is a warm set from Ugg, great for colder areas. I was breaking a sweat with the jacket on. I sized up in the jacket but took my regular size in the pant (which fits like a thermal). Super soft just like you would expect from Ugg. This would be super cute with Ugg boots at a ski lodge-you get the picture!
You know I love my Topshop poncho which has sold out.
