ME & MY CORE COMFORTS

Details: TopShop Rip Elbow Denim Jacket via Nordstrom, here| Aerie Oversized Nomad Pants, here|Converse slip-on sneakers, here |

I love trying out different fashion trends and stocking my closet with clothes, that much you can tell. However, I’ve never been one to sacrifice comfort for fashion. That’s not entirely true. I’ve done that a couple of times, and it’s not worth it. You don’t look cute when you’re uncomfortable. Wobbling around in 6-inch pumps that are cutting into your heels, what’s the point? I always do like to get a couple of garments that are a bit different from the rest of my closet and have that “outshine” factor, but mostly I stick with what’s comfortable and fits well.

I’m not sure what next week looks like, but the mornings have been a bit cooler than usual, and I’m more than okay with that. This weekend looks fairly mild, and today I woke up to crisp cool brink of fall weather…DELIGHTFUL! So, in the spirit of comfort and a new season, I’m sharing one of my favorite outfits. We’ve got, what I like to call, my core comforts: slouchy Nomad pants from Aerie (available in 4 different colors), a sleeveless sweater top, and my oversized denim TopShop jacket…oooh and can’t forget my slip-on converse sneaks! Which way to the apple cider, pumpkin patch, farmers market, (insert most basic fall activity here)?!?

Since comfort and athleisure have become more commonplace and accepted by major retailers, it’s so easy to find clothing that is not only comfy and cozy but looks good too. Take a look at your closet and identify your most comfortable pieces and see how you can elevate them with accessories, a blazer, you name it, it’s possible!

GUEST OF THE WEDDING WEAR

Details: Nordstrom Topshop Tie Front Minidress, sold out here, but similar here, here and… this isn’t similar, but I love this | Tommy Hilfiger Zappos suede heels, here |

I had the pleasure of attending a beautiful wedding this weekend and after seeing some of this year’s wedding fashions in person, I got to thinking about what’s appropriate to wear to a wedding. Things have changed, people seem to be less tied to tradition and I believe the rules of what guests can/should wear to a wedding have changed a bit. Listen, I don’t think that people should be attending a wedding dressed in white with a tiara, but do I think you can get away with ivory, floral with white accents and cream colors? Yes, yes I do. Newsflash! There is no possible way you will upstage the bride unless you decide to wear a wedding dress to a wedding that’s not yours, which would be super strange and inappropriate.  Now, just because I think neutral whites are fine to wear to a wedding doesn’t mean others do. I always feel like dressing modestly, but with some sass is the way to go (save your deep v-necks and high slits for a night out with your beau). Which is why I am SO in love with this dress. It has a beautiful modest sleeve and the tie knot in front is surprisingly flattering. The sass factor of this dress is definitely the length. It’s called a mini dress for a reason! I’m only 5’1″ so the length of this dress wasn’t a factor for me, but I do think it could look really short on someone who is 5’5″ and up. To give you some context, when I bent down I felt like a brisk breeze. Unfortunately, this dress is currently sold out, but I did link to some similar styles and I also included a super cute dress that I just happen to love. There is a possibility it will be restocked so stay tuned!

ACTUAL OOTD…FOR REAL

Details: Top Shop red Wrap Waist top via Nordstrom, here | Dark wash Gap jeans, similar here | Charming Charlie yellow floral earrings, similar here | Tommy Hilfiger via DSW taupe suede ‘Venture’ pumps, here |

Guys, Happy Valentine’s Day! Hoping you took my advice from Monday’s post and have decided to spread some love this month, week or day :). While I’m TOTALLY into wearing heart/V-Day inspired clothing, I decided to tap my sophisticated side and wear this classic red wrap waist top and my favorite jegging jeans (yes jegging jeans from GAP…sue me!) to my Valentine’s Day date tonight. I love this top. You can’t see, but it ties in the back, making the front as fitted as you’d like with some flattering ruching. I love the orange undertones in this red color and how nicely it falls above my jeans. Because I was feeling even MORE color, I popped on these yellow floral earrings and added some beach waves to my locks. Instantly, I felt like I was owning the Valentine’s Day game…sexy red dresses are overrated. Because this look is all about color, I slid on my new taupe suede block heel pumps and voila! Cute comfort at its finest.

Now, if you don’t have a date or you aren’t going out with your Galentines, make sure you spread some love to the ones you care about and then get into something cozy, put on your best face mask and tune in to your favorite shows. You deserve some self-love and relaxation, today and every day!
