Goodness, the past week or two has been tough. And it seems it could be just the beginning of a long road as we try to navigate a new normal over the coming months. Emotions are all over the board and stress levels are the highest we have seen in a long time…. Each of us handles these situations differently, and that is OK. We are firm believers in “you do you.” It is so important now – and always – that each of us listens to our hearts and takes care of ourselves.
One thing we know is that simply getting dressed and putting ourselves together each day brings us comfort and a bit more confidence to tackle the minute by minute changes we are experiencing right now. So whether you are staying home with your kiddos, doing your best to be productive around the house (and believe us, we are finding this difficult right now too), taking conference calls from your home office, or heading into work per usual, consider taking a few extra minutes today to care for yourself by “getting dressed for your day.”
We thought it would be fun to share a few casual and comfortable, but “put together” looks for those that are mainly hanging around the house for the next couple of weeks. Think athleisure with a twist!
Getting Dressed: Casual + Comfortable Put Together Looks
Aerie is one of our favorite places to purchase elevated athleisure pieces! The options are endless on their website. And they are offering 40% off of everything plus free online returns right now. We love the feminine vibe of this puff sleeve sweatshirt half tucked into some comfy joggers. Pair with a cute pair of sneakers and some hoop earrings, and you are comfortable yet put together for the day!
Free People is another favorite brand when it comes to casual, comfortable, and put together. This flowy embroidered blouse half tucked into your favorite pair of comfortable denim will bring a smile to your face. We are loving these pull on jeans by Levi’s for casual and comfortable style! Pair with your favorite sneakers (how about all of the new Tretorn options?!) or flats!
Don’t underestimate the power of your go-to jeans and t-shirt! That’s a very functional but fabulous casual look for getting things done around the house! We happen to love Madewell for both of these wardrobe staples, and they are having 25% everything right now. And as a sidenote, check out these new silver and white Vans!
Check back over the coming weeks for lots more fun content on the blog that we hope will spread some happy out there during these difficult times. In the meantime, stay safe and well!
