This and That...Debbie's Stylin' Leggings and Tunic!

Leggings, Tunic and More!

Can you tell I'm still in a blue mood? But, this time I'm not creating a tablescape! I'm in a blue mood stylin' with leggings, tunic and ankle booties. And, oh yes, a blue scarf and jewelry for good measure! So, settle back and relax on this day after Thanksgiving and join me as I share this week's stylin' with you. 

To be honest, I was nervous for quite awhile about trying leggings. But after seeing them modeled on so many blog sites and reading up on the appropriate length for tunics to go with the leggings on women my age, etc. I decided to give them a try. I wore this outfit to Thanksgiving dinner with my mother-in-law and I didn't get asked to leave the retirement village because I was inappropriately dressed so I guess I'm OK with the outfit!

I've worn this tunic several times with slacks and have gotten quite a few compliments. I love the blue and tan sequin 
designs on the tunic and how it is loose and comfy. I purchased it on sale at Cracker Barrel. I couldn't find the exact tunic online but you can see other tunics here. The leggings were a Walmart purchase. You can see similar here. These leggings are quite soft and comfortable. The ankle booties were another DSW on sale buy. You can see the exact pair here. I love that these booties are flat and I can wear them all day in comfort and style. A win-win combination!

The blue scarf adds some extra style and warmth to the overall look. I don't recall where I got this scarf, but I think the blue of the scarf compliments the blue in the tunic nicely. Mr.thisandthat was getting creative with this shot, can you tell?

The blue bracelet on my left wrist was a purchase from one of our Colorado trips a few summers ago at a favorite Estes Park jewelry store called Dakotah Jewelry. They usually have sale items that I can take advantage of on our visits there. The bracelet on my right wrist was a cheapie purchase at a local dollar type store. Gotta love those bargains!!

I'm a big believer in stylin' without big expense! How about you? Are you an "on sale" shopper? Do you love finding bargains? Leave me a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Until next time,
