Lately, I’ve been obsessed with Uniqlo. Forget H&M, Zara, Forever 21 – for inexpensive basics, I’ve been heading straight to Uniqlo. This is not a sponsored post by the way – I just realized that I’ve been placing so many orders, and getting such good use out of my Uniqlo items, that I thought I’d share some of my favorite pieces!
Milano ribbed skirt, $15. I’ve gone a bit crazy over midi/long skirts lately. I always knew skirts were more comfortable than pants, which is why I spend most of the summer in dresses and shorts, but always defaulted back to pants in winter, due to the cold. Because I’d always worn shorter skirts, you see….having been told that as a petite person, I needed to keep things at knee length or above.
Well, maybe I’m just older and care less, but I’m all about the longer skirts these days. They cover up, keep you warm, and you never have to worry about bending over. I love this skirt, the perfect weight for fall. And the price!
By the way, as this went on sale, they’re almost sold out, in which case check out the:
Felted long skirt: More or less the same straight cut as the Milano ribbed above, but a heavier, fuzzy fabric. I bought black and can’t wait to wear it with tights in winter. I’d buy more colors of both styles if they had them in stock!
Flare wide pants: $15. I have to warn you, that these pants are not my husband’s favorite. He barely found them acceptable when he thought they were a skirt, and once I started walking and he realized they were actually pants? Not the pants you wear out to the bar to go man hunting, ladies. But I love them. They are so comfortable, don’t wrinkle easily, have pockets, and I just love the flowy feeling when I’m walking around in them, I think it’s a very chic feeling. Totally worth it, especially for the sale price – these would be the most comfortable work pants you could buy I think.
Since going on sale, these have been going fast, so I’d also check out the:
Milano ribbed wide pants, $20. These are in the mail on their way to me. They don’t have the same illusion of a skirt as the flare pants above, but I love the ribbed material, stretchy waistband, and yup – pockets again!
Not pictured, but a few other favorites:
Women’s draped long sleeve t-shirt, $15. The perfect t-shirt over leggings. Excellent quality, nice length, comfortable material…what else could you ask for?
House slippers, $15. Not the sexiest, but warm and a fantastic price. I toss out my winter slippers each year, so I don’t need very pricey versions. I’m a 6.5 US women’s and I bought a size medium.
Ultra light down vest, $50. I wear this vest all the time, I’m going to get another color this year. The perfect extra layer to add. Wonderful quality. Size up (I wear a XS but I’d take even a Small if I wanted to fit a bulky layer underneath).
