Obssessive Sweatpants

Ever since I have received my Isabel Marant x H&M purchased items, what I have been wearing all the time is the sweatpants. Despite the fact that there is some nicer and more interesting items of the collection, the flexibility and effortless style of this soft ash-grey woolen high-waist jersey pants makes it extremely easy to pair up with a simple tank top, flats or sneakers, and a statement jacket. 
Besides Isabel Marant, grey sweatpants are a must-have I can say. The good news is, H&M is having a second round sale of the Isabel Marant exclusive collection tomorrow, saturday, at 8 am. How is this even possible? Well, Lebanon scored record sales for this limited collection (practically entirely sold-out) while other countries in the Middle East didn't do so well. I can simply explain that by the very frenchy and western style clothing of Isabel Marant that arab countries are not very well accustomed to; Arab countries are really all about the glam and the sparkly. Therefore, I am assuming that the non sold items in the rest of the Middle East region will all be combined at a single collection, in Abc Ashrafieh tomorrow morning. (Announcement confirmed by a phone call to H&M.) if you couldn't snatch your favorite item last thursday, are you going to give it a second chance?

At AUB, I wore the 'Isabel Marant x H&M' sweatpants with an oldie Gap tank top, Sandro varsity-inspired jacket, and white Guipure 'The Blonde Salad x Superga' sneakers, plus holding my Fendi tote.

For a more chic twist to the sweatpants, I switched the Superga sneakers with Repetto flats for a sunny Sunday afternoon. I wore them with 'Isabel Marant x H&M'graphic tank top with the tough addition of a simple black leather jacket.
