Pairing Pumps With Sweatpants
Pairing Pumps With Sweatpants. “What do you think about these blue pumps with sweatpants?” I asked the Founder of Holly and Tanager as I walked on set to shoot these looks a few weeks ago. I went on, “It’s kind of a weird pairing — something I’ve never seen with an H&T Bag … ”
“Alex, that’s why we like you!” Lindsay Lingle, leading lady of H&T, said in reply.
Haha! This is the biggest compliment I’ve ever received about my style to date. Thank you, Linds! Truly, I felt my inner Carrie Bradshaw light up in that moment; I couldn’t wait to get the day started!
Holly Tanager, along with Mod + Ethico and I shot three looks recently to highlight the handbag brand’s newest style. That day we shot with master-man-behind-the-camera: Steve Rodich.
Did you know? Mod + Ethico is a sustainable fashion boutique owned and operated by one of Lindsay’s friends: Candice Collison. M + E, the shop, is located in the West Loop (and online: modandethico.com).
Coincidentally — Candice is the moderator of Fashion Group International of Chicago’s upcoming event: Ethically Made — The Human Element Of Our Clothes. Fashion Group is so excited to have her!
This top from M + E is Nation LTD Karen Grey Burnout Slit V-Neck Short Sleeve Tee and the sweatpants, OMG THE SWEATPANTS … they were SO comfy! Click here to shop a similar style.
And then of course! OF COURSE the bag is Holly and Tanager’s famous Professional. I finished this look with a pop o’the good ole’ blue from J. Crew … a pair I pulled from my own closet.
