casual basics

I never wanna stay in sweats all day said no one ever! I found a way to still feel super comfy but up the chic factor. I recently found sounds comfy sweatshirts and I love it paired with flared jeans! To make the whole ensemble feel chic and pulled together, I added a hat and floral platform heels. The latter of which I don’t wear when I’m running the kids around, to be honest, I wear pink sneakers daily!

I love how LA designers Lauren Alexander and April Leight keep re-thinking cozy basics. The t-shirt gets an upgrade with a fresh cutout. It’s a modern cut coupled with a cozy fabric. Which is your favorite?

While it may seem like Abercrombie + Fitch is catering more to the younger set (think tweens and teens), a recent shopping trip there was an eye-opener. Abercrombie + Fitch has stepped it up and I’m loving all the colors, enviable basics, and great classic styles that made it so popular in the first place. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll notice I’ve been wearing this trench coat on repeat. Thankfully, this taupe beauty happened to arrive at my doorstep during the heart of LA’s crazy cool and wet February weather. Also, these jeans and gingham top, like most Abercrombie + Fitch items are under $100.
Oh, and did I mention the kids’ section? The selection is melt-your-heart good.  The darling shorts are still darling after lots of active wear–and still in one piece, without holes. They’re cute AND shenanigan-proof. Can you ask for more? And I was more than happy that he actually liked his hat well enough to keep it on. His dad is even jealous of that hat.  It’s the little things in life that make you smile, right? Thank you Abercrombie + Fitch for sponsoring this post and reintroducing me to the brand and new styles. Go find some new favorites!
