Jogger pants: the pants you live in every. single. day. Don’t we? They’re the first thing you put on when you change out of your work (or school) clothes, toss them on in the morning to take the dogs out, make breakfast, get the mail etc. and, perhaps best of all, you spend your precious lazy Sunday in them—when you get one. If you’re still reading, then thank you because I’m glad I’m not alone on this. And if you’re not nodding your head, then maybe you need some jogger pants in your life. 😂🙈

I really can’t seem to have enough of this style because they truly get so much wear for me. I’m wearing the Splendid Essentials Field Jogger here. A lot of mine have seen better days and I probably shouldn’t be wearing in public, but it’s always nice to have a quality pair on-hand that will comfortably take you from the couch to a day of errands or even dinner. The key lies in making the look…intentional. Like you know you’re basically in pajamas but you still look good. If I throw mine on with a relaxed (read oversized) tee or sweatshirt, I tend to feel frumpy. And that’s definitely not the goal. So here, I added a fitted thermal top (also by Splendid and so. dang. soft) and layered with a faux leather jacket for a bit of edge but you could also do a denim jacket or military/anorak.

Slip on a pair of sneakers so you can actually wear this for a day on your feet and you’ll be looking cool, casual, effortless and, arguable most importantly,—comfortable!

As always, thank you so much for reading!

I am now fully convinced every woman needs a pair of Spanx in her wardrobe. 💯Faux leather Spanx? 10 times cooler. This is my first pair and I can’t believe it’s taken me so long! I think we all know Spanx are meant to hold things in and, of course, they do just that. But I also love how they’re crazy comfortable and don’t flatten out your, um, other side—ok, your butt—and they’re even center-seam free which means no camel toe. 🙌🏼

Even if you’re not looking for tummy control and all that other fun stuff, a high-quality pair of faux leather/liquid/coated leggings is such a great wardrobe staple. Swap them out for your everyday leggings and they make any outfit look instantly cooler, elevated and edgy. But if edgy style isn’t quite your thing, they still look sleek and chic dressed up with pretty sweaters or blouses and heels this season or you can dress them down with sneakers, as I did here.

You can basically recreate this outfit a thousand times over. I went with a go-to white sweater (this one comes in a few colors and is on sale for $19.97) with this Madewell Surplus jacket tied around the waist, but any color sweater with a denim jacket or chambray shirt works just as well. Since these leggings are so flattering, you can even wear them with shorter tops.

For sizing reference, I’m normally a 25/26 in denim and I’m wearing the size small. I’m also 5’6” and they still have plenty of length but don’t look bad scrunched up a bit at the ankle. They do also come in PETITE! These will look great tucked into boots and booties, too!

I’ve gotten so many messages saying you guys snagged these Nike sneakers and I’m so glad to hear you’re loving them, too!! They’re still on sale for $60.97 and I can’t recommend them enough. They truly go with everything. These are true to Nike sizing!

As always, thank you so much for reading!

Ivory Tweed Sweatshirt with Fall Hat Under $50

Comfy fall style that’s also cute? Yes, please. Sweatshirts you can live in are always a must-have for every season and it’s a total treasure finding styles that are just as pretty for dressing up as they are for lounging at home. I grabbed this Anthropolgie Boucle Sweatshirt to kick off the fall season and it’s officially become my favorite thing. And it’s definitely not your average sweatshirt!

It’s a boucle fabric which is French for “buckled tweed.” Basically, it means it’s textured yet soft and it gives this slouchy sweatshirt style some structure. I love 100% cotton basics that are really not so basic. 💯

The $98 price point is definitely at the top of my typical budget for a sweatshirt but this is also not your typical sweatshirt. I can see throwing this on with cute jogger pants and sneakers, wearing it with denim in any color, dressing it up for the holidays with a bit of holiday sparkle or tucking into sweet little skirts and pairing with over-the-knee boots. 

I also want to quickly point out this Treasure & Bond panama hat which has become an instant favorite. Normally, I find it tricky finding a fall hat that fits me and stays on comfortably plus feels flattering. I think I have a high forehead, so maybe that’s part of it but I absolutely love this one. It’s adjustable so you can get your perfect fit and the taupe tone goes well with everything plus adds a casual-cool, fall-ready vibe. I will definitely be pulling this one out through winter. It’s a great price at just $39!

As always, thank you for reading!

By now it should be no secret that I’m a big fan of Levi’s. I wear a pair of Levi’s jeans almost every single day and if I could only choose one denim brand to wear for the rest of my life—Levi’s would be it, hands down. Which is why I am so beyond excited to partner with Levi’s for this post!

As someone with extremely picky denim needs (high rise, comfortable, nip in at the waist, room for the bum), Levi’s has become my go-to for flattering, effortless fits—that don’t break the bank. They have everything from 100% cotton, true-denim fit and feel to stretchy, skinny, straight and everything in between. And so many of them are under $100. 💯Levi’s are truly the jeans you will reach for, over-wear, live in. 🙌🏼

Most days you’ll find me in skinny jeans but I personally love the relaxed look of straighter, boyfriend styles. What I don’t like about boyfriend jeans? Feeling frumpy. But does anyone?? Enter my dream denim from Levi’s: the 501 and Wedgie Fit

You’ve seen me in my Levi’s 501 jeans countless times and today I’m wearing these High-Waisted Levi’s Wedgie Fit Jeans. These two styles are pure gold. They’re technically a skinny silhouette (which I love), yet somehow give you that perfectly relaxed, lived-in feel. You know the jeans you can throw on with a tee and also dress up with heels and a blazer and feel just as chic both ways? Yea, these are them. I’m wearing the ‘Higher Love’ wash here but my other favorite is the 501 jeans in ‘Can’t Touch This.’ I am typically in-between sizes (25 & 26) and wear a 26 in both of these. I notice the 100% cotton styles like these do bag out slightly with wear but sizing up (especially if you’re already in between sizes) still works well, otherwise they can be too tight in the thighs and rear. I get asked about Levi’s sizing quite frequently, so I wanted to outline the sizes I wear in my favorite styles below.

My Levi’s Sizing

Levi’s Wedgie: size 26; no stretch

Levi’s 501: size 26; no stretch

Levi’s 721 (99% Cotton): size 25; low stretch

Levi’s 721 (85 - 95% Cotton): size 26; high stretch

Levi’s Mile High Skinny: size 25; low stretch

I love the slightly darker, true-blue wash on these wedgie jeans which will be perfect for the fall season. I paired them with this adorable Levi’s ruffle sleeve top and threw on a shearling lined denim jacket for a little denim on denim action. This is the original sherpa trucker jacket in ‘Extremely Lovable’ and it has a really cool vibe that’s still classic. I can see pairing this with black or colored denim, over an all-black look for an edgy vibe, even over fall dresses. It’s warm but not overly bulky and will be great for layering this season. I’m in an xs but would suggest sizing UP if you plan to wear over sweaters.

As always, thank you for reading!

Shop the Look Below. Free People Top | Levi’s Jeans | See By Chloe Bag | Ray-Ban Sunglasses

You know those tops that make you feel feminine and flattered in an instant? That’s wrap tops. Wrap tops do that. 🙌🏼For me, every time I toss on a wrap silhouette, I feel instantly put together and like my curves are highlighted yet in the most effortless and natural way that’s not overly revealing. Subtly sexy—that’s a wrap top. 

I love this one from Free People because it’s an ultra comfy knit with a touch of elastane for plenty of stretch. This would be perfect for a busty frame or even nursing. Neither of which apply to me but regardless, I think they’re both key attributes so many women need in a top. 

This one comes in a couple other colors (like black and Moroccan spice!) I can see working well for every season. It’s light enough to be a spring staple yet perfect for fall (both day and night) paired with denim (like my current favorite Levi’s worn here), skirts, work pants and booties. 

For sizing reference, I’m in an xs and , as always, thank you so much for reading!
