Indulging in Too Many Comfort Foods? These Comfortable Clothes Can Hide That

Just put me in front of some peach cobbler, some fried chicken, or some greens with cornbread and you will see me give those sharks on Shark Week a run for their money with the amount of destruction I cause.

 

We love comfort foods! That is why they are called comfort foods. However, we know that if we eat them all the time, we may start to notice a difference in the way our clothes fit. Don’t worry. I’m not going to tell you to put down that fried chicken leg. I am going to ask you to pick up some more leggings.

 

Most jeans don’t come with elastic waistbands, and most trousers don’t have elastic waistbands. Leggings have elastic waistbands, and that is going to be your ultimate style fix when you have indulged in too many comfort foods. Whether it is just indulging on Thanksgiving Day (you can name a pair of pants your “holiday pants”) or you have been indulging in mini-Thanksgivings on a daily basis (gravy makes everything better), you might have a need for some stretchy pants. However, you can’t quite justify purchasing from the maternity department when you are not pregnant, and you don’t want to be wearing the same pants as your arthritic grandmother who has round-the-clock care. So that leaves leggings as your go-to clothing option.

 

If you need some ideas for how to wear leggings to work, you need to look no further than this article. Here are five ideas for how to wear leggings to work when you have been indulging in too many comfort foods.

 

Five Ideas for How to Wear Leggings to Work:
  1. Wear leggings with an oversized sweater (one that is long enough to wear as a dress by a teenager) with a pair of high-heeled boots. The high-heeled boots dress up the outfit and make it appear more professional.
  2. Wear leggings with an oversized man’s dress shirt and riding boots. Button the shirt all the way to the top and accessorize with a statement necklace tucked under the collar of the shirt.
  3. Wear leggings with an oversized cardigan. Take the long cardigan, wrap it tightly around you, and then belt the cardigan to keep it closed. It will look like you are wearing a wrap-style top, but really, you styled the cardigan into a top (I get so many compliments every time I go out like this—people don’t know I’m wearing a cardigan).
  4. Turn a dress into a top. This can be accomplished with any dress that is loose and shapeless. Add a long necklace and you and your bloated belly are chic, stylish, and comfortable at the office
  5. In a more casual work environment, wear a long t-shirt under a long blazer. Roll up the sleeves of your blazer and add a cuff bracelet.

Why You Need to Look as Good in the Lobby as You Do on Stage

“Hey, is that you?”

 

Those four words can be one of the most terrifying words in the English language. You might even feel a little tingle run up your spine or the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

 

When you hear that phrase, you think, “Who could this possibly be, and what am I wearing right now?” Is it the girl in high school you never liked, and you are about to see her perfectly coiffed while you are dressed like you have been laying manure in the hot fields all day? Or is it going to be your ex-boyfriend that went back to his ex-girlfriend who wasn’t a supermodel per se, though she just did a couple strolls down the catwalk in fashion week. (Oh, how you loathe her Instagram feed!)

 

The phrase, “Hey, is that you?” is even more frightening if you are a public figure, and unfortunately, if you are professional speaker, you are a public figure. This means that you can be recognized at any time. You may be at the level where you nail your style up on stage, but you also have to nail it on the plane to the event and even in the lobby of the hotel of the event because that’s where you will have those four words spoken to you.

 

I know you don’t want to get on a cross-country flight in a tailored suit. It is hard to get in a good nap, with drool included, when you are wearing something uncomfortable. Why do you need to worry about what to wear traveling to a speaking event? You have to worry because everyone has a phone, everyone can post something online, and everything has the possibility of going viral and completely ruining your brand.

 

There are ways you can be both comfortable and cute. You can wear a hoodie, a fleece, or leggings and be very comfortable yet still look comfortable. So please dress in comfy clothes, but consider the complete outfit when you are trying to determine what to wear traveling to a speaking event.

 

For example, you want to wear a hoodie. You are getting up early in the morning when it is dark and cold outside to head to the airport. You’ll have to hit the ground running when you land. You could wear a hoodie under a denim jacket (make sure to pull out your hood so don’t have a big bulge behind your neck) with a pair of white jeans. On the plane, you can ditch the denim jacket or use as a blanket. You can pull the hood up over your head and take your nap. The white jeans help the outfit to look nice and crisp even though you are wearing a hoodie. White jeans is just one outfit idea on what to wear traveling to a speaking event

 

Next time you hear, “Hey, is that you?” you’ll turn around and be ready for whoever it is asking that question…except if it is her—you know, the non-supermodel. If it is her, you can absolutely go off.

I think this quote by Karl Lagerfeld speaks volumes. Just replace the word over and underdressed with the words insecure. So the phrase reads, one is never insecure with a little black dress.

Uplift Your Wardrobe

We watch movies, binge watch TV shows, and browse through magazines and we see women immaculately dressed and stylish. You may even browse fashion blogs and see stylish women, perfectly posed and perfectly made up in beautiful locales like Maui, Beverly Hills and Costa Rica. The photos are stunning. They are works of art. And, they will absolutely take your breath away.

 

However, how does that make you feel? Do you think I’m not that size? I’m not that young? My passport is expired and I could never dress like that, look like that, or pose like that! And your breakfast and your outfit this morning could only be an Instagram post if it was accompanied by the hashtag #epicfail. Why does the fashion media make you feel like you never… measure up?

 

What if instead of making you feel like you could never measure up, it actually made you feel lifted up?

 

It is possible to uplift your wardrobe.

 

What if it actually helped to teach you what to wear and how to wear it? And, you could learn as much or as little as you like. Whether you need a little pick me up or a complete overhaul.

 

The touchstone of uplifting your wardrobe is going to be our style video series. Each series is designed to help you to start making small changes to your wardrobe. Whether it is learning how to sprinkle in some sexy, or how to use flex pieces, or where to shop to get deals. Small changes that add up to equal BIG results.

 

Your kids have Blues Clues and Sesame Street to learn their ABC’s and 123’s. And now you have your video style series to learn your A-line skirts, Ballet Flats, and Cashmere.

 

The purpose of the video series is:

 

  1. Educate you on what could work for your wardrobe
  2. Inspire you with ideas you can try out
  3. Give you a few laughs
  4. Open your mind and forget fashion rules you were wrongly taught (it’s like in the movie Matrix, “There is no spoon”)
  5. Make you feel like you can do it – you can be stylish!

 

 

 

Uplift your wardrobe,

Can You Be Both Desirable and Comfortable on a First Date?

Your goal on a first date is to be desirable. You want to be sexy but not too sexy. Be flirty but not over the top flirty, where even the waiter asks for your phone number. You also want to have a dash of a little hard-to-get attitude. To produce this perfect blend on a first date, we’ve been taught that it requires tight clothing, sky-high heels, a barrel of perfume, and the removal of all body hair. These ingredients make it very hard to also feel comfortable on a first date. So your flirty ends up coming off as fidgety because you keep pulling at your Spanx all night.

 

You can wear comfortable clothes on a first date and still be sexy, flirty, and a little hard to get. Do you need comfortable outfit ideas for a date? I have you covered. Let’s start with a thermal shirt. It makes you think about camping, warmth, comfort, and outdoorsmen that prefer digging holes in the ground to toilets. It does not make you think “hot first date outfit,” but it can be. Wear a form-fitting thermal shirt that has buttons down the front of the neckline and pair this with boyfriend jeans, and wedges (not uncomfortable high heels).

The way you make the thermal shirt sexy and flirty is to unbutton a few of the buttons to have a hint of cleavage (by only fastening a few buttons and not all of them is how you achieve that hard-to-get appeal). There you go! Now, you have a cool, comfortable date outfit. Need more comfortable outfit ideas for a date, well…

 

We all love the comfort of leggings. To make them first date worthy, pair leggings with a slouchy off-the-shoulder top and boots. You are comfortable, you show off a sexy shoulder, and you get to wear boots on a date. Make this outfit even more flirty and feminine by properly accessorizing this look. You look great, and you have that effortless style look that makes other women crazy with jealousy.

 

If you like wearing a dress on a first date, here is a comfortable outfit idea for a date. You can wear a muumuu (yes, you read that correctly—a muumuu) and belt it. Wear it with gorgeous sandals or wedges (don’t forget your pedicure). Again, you have a look where you don’t have to worry about sucking in your stomach all night and being shaken away on the bathroom floor by the sous chef because you fainted from lack of oxygen. This is a first date dress that will allow you to breathe and even do those deep belly breathes your yoga instructor (or therapist or life coach) talks about.

 

Don’t believe what you see on The Bachelor. There are comfortable outfit ideas for a date that are sexy and flirty. You just need some imagination, some moral courage, and the ideas in this article. So don’t stress out. Just take a deep belly breath because you are comfortable in your own skin and in your clothes.
