Comfortable & Stylish Basics I’m Loving This Month

This month I’ve been all about comfortable basics that I can create multiple chic looks from. The one place I’ve been frequenting for these pieces is Abercrombie & Fitch. I hadn’t shopped there since I was a high school student so I was surprised I found so many items I loved. I had to pump the brakes before it turned into a full-on shopping splurge. My jeans are a new favorite and I’ve been wearing them non stop. They are high-waisted, distressed black denim; the most perfect basic. Black jeans just pair so well with everything and I’m correcting the lack of them in my wardrobe immediately.

The next favorite new item in my closet is waffle style sweater. I love that it has the feel of a sweater but with a much looser fit. I find it easy to create a casual dressed up or laid-back look. The ultimate of stylish basics. Oh, I’m putting the white on hold because it is all about cream for me at the moment. A black and cream look just make my little heart sing. I also really been loving silver at the start of this year. I’ll never stop wearing gold but for now, I’m giving a slight preference to silver.

There is a new section added to the style posts this year called Editor’s Picks. I was trying to find a solution to items being sold out before I get to post links to the blog. Therefore, I’ll be choosing my favorite in stock pieces of the brands I’m wearing, so you can shop them if you so choose. Hopefully, this is something you’ll enjoy.

My Take on the Athleisure Trend


This week has been going by super slow for me especially since I didn’t have Monday off. I’m so thrilled it’s Friday. I just want to snuggle in bed and watch Netflix all weekend. However, I can’t because I have a jam packed weekend of projects and planning.

A few weeks ago I gave some tips about how to make your wardrobe meet your lifestyle. In that post, I mentioned the trend athleisure. It’s basically made wearing workout gear acceptable in any setting. I mean most have been doing this since high school. But you know things don’t become trendy unless adopted by the fashion world. There have been so many brands and designers creating lines geared specifically toward this trend. So for the girl who loves sweats and jerseys looking chic became a whole lot easier.

I must admit I’m not the sweats and hoodie type of girl but I like the whole relaxed vibe around athleisure. When I saw this jersey by Adidas I had a little heart flutter. I mean it’s so fly. I had to get it and add my own twist to this trend.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
