Floral Sweater Leggings

So these photos were taken quite a while ago. As you can see in the pictures below, the restaurant we went to had Halloween printed mats, so these are from last month. This would be what I wore for my guitar lesson in the morning and then to grab lunch with mom. It was a good day spent frolicking in the leaves, sipping on hot coffee, and munching on some delicious food with a loved one.
Mom and I went to this tiny little brunch place called Kiwi's. They have meat pies, seafood, and some delicious treats that are from New Zealand! I chatted with the waitress a bit about that, and apparently that's where the owners of the restaurant are from. So mom and I ordered a dessert called lamington, a New Zealand treat that's basically a lemon cake dipped in chocolate, coated in coconut shavings, and then has a thick layer of whip cream spread in between. Mmmmm, it was so good!

I didn't give you a very in-depth outfit post featuring these sweater leggings last time, so I figured I had to remix it into another outfit. Besides, they're such a fun and bold piece to play with!
These leggings are not only boldly printed, they're super warm too! I'll be sure to wear them again into the winter.
 And believe me, winter is arriving here. You know that crisp feel in the air everyone loves about fall?
Well, that crispness has plunged into freezing here, and I'm constantly shivering. Then again, I believe I'll always be a California girl in my blood - I've never adjusted to the cold Idaho winters here. I just don't have very thick skin to withstand these temperatures!
Ah well, I'll just have to counter the cold with more layers and coffee!

Anyone have a favorite hot drink to sip on this time of year? I'm open to suggestions!

Oh, I love this! So inspiring for fall/winter weather. And I love how florals can transition from summer to fall, very pretty!

Aren't thrifted sweaters the best?! 9 times out of 10 they're cheap, comfy, oversized and perfect! <3

Marlen said...

aw, your lunch date with momma was so cute- and i like how you dressed up for her :) those floral pants are so cool- i love how bold that print is. and i love even more how you kept it monochrome!

Ali Hval said...

Aweeee, momma and Linda time together! :D How cute! I'm glad you were able to consume delicious food. It's always nice to find lovely lunch places, no? <3

That sweater looks so cozy! And this outfit kind of reminds me of Alice in Wonderland--the pocketwatch is like the White Rabbit's, and the color of the floral leggings reminds me of the singing flower scene... haha. :) You're cuuuuuuuutttttEEE LINDA

I don't know how you always manage to pull off things like floral leggings so well, but you always do so effortlessly! Loving this sweater too, it looks crazy comfy. As for my favorite hot drink, what ISN'T my favorite? I'm really loving salted caramel white mochas right now, but I can never resist a gingerbread latte during Christmas time. Well, that, and my plain old coffee every morning as well :)
