Gimme all the Juicy joggers!

IMG_5514To all the ladies in the place who lived out their college years in velour Juicy Couture jumpsuits (or less expensive Express knock-offs, like moi):

They sold out in stores and online over the holidays, and it seems like they can’t keep them stocked for long. I’m waiting for the perfect sale opportunity to pounce on a pair in black, “regal blue,” or “forged iron.”

I’m not one of those style bloggers who will tell you to wear joggers with heels and a blazer to the office. I do, however, advocate throwing them on with a tee and flip-flops to run your weekend errands. ;-)
