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!

Happy Monday! I love having easy and effortless basics to take me through every season. There's something about black denim that makes any outfit instantly feel finished and put together. They're a staple in my wardrobe and an edgy base I rely on. 

This Free People pair from Nordstrom is seriously the most amazing steal—only $78. The high rise makes for an easy half tuck and flattering fit and the rips give them that added edge I love.

If you haven't jumped on the high rise trend yet—do. I love love the silhouette they create and they just help keep everything in place. This pair runs tts and is a tight fit with some stretch which is something I love. So far no bagging or stretching and the ankle length will be perfect with booties into fall. For reference, I'm 5'6" and wearing size 25.

I added a new denim jacket to my collection and this one by Topshop is too good. It's a slightly oversized fit and has a slouchy feel. The subtle distressing keeps it casual-cool and it will be such a wardrobe staple. Wearing a US 2 here. 

This black Madewell tee is the second I've added to my collection and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. The black on black is an easy way to feel cool in an instant but I love that you can wear this outfit with literally any top in any color. 

I love buying my staples at Nordstrom and have so much less buyers remorse when I know they're pieces that are so interchangeable, work a multitude of ways and are under $100. I've worn these jeans several times each week since I bought them from day to weekend to a night out—just swap the denim jacket with a moto.

This outfit will be such a go-to for daily wear and can see myself swapping out the sandals for sneakers for on-the-go days or wearing with booties into fall. 

Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend! 

xx, Tyler
