The unitard: a love story.

t-shirt: old navy 
(I seriously LIVE in these tees. They're super soft, a great price, and long enough to wear with leggings. GET SOME.
sweater: hm
boots: clark's (also love these and these)
purse: target
leggings: see story below

One of the best parts about being home is being able to go through all your old stuff and finding new uses, and a rejuvenated love for things you forgot you even had. Since leaving for college, my existence in my parents' house has been reduced to a few bags of clothes and a shoebox full of keepsakes labeled "LAUREN'S CHILDHOOD". Apparently it was a brief, yet fulfilling childhood. 

While rummaging through my bags of clothes looking for something to wear to a wedding (because I'm really good at packing), I came upon a unitard that I may or may not have accidentally stolen from my high school dance department. In case you don't know what a unitard is, it's basically a giant spandex onesie. Awesome, right? I obviously had to try it on again and obnoxiously  prance around my house in it for a good half hour. But then something weird happened. 

I never really took it off. 
I've been wearing it under my clothes the entire time I've been home (including this outfit). Not only is it like a pair of leggings and an undershirt all in one, and it almost acts like a shaper, which is great because I literally can't stop eating during the holidays.

 So just in case you never thought you could feel cool wearing something ending in -TARD, I'm here to prove you wrong. And because I know you're a little curious, they sell them in all different colors at American Apparel. You're welcome.
