Athleisure is everywhere and I feel like it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. I mean who doesn’t love the wear sneakers just about every day…I do and if you say not me then I think you’re crazy! Ok well not crazy, but seriously it’s so much easier to get in and out of places and run around with the kids.
Don’t get me wrong, I love dressing up and wearing heels. But day-in and day-out I am a busy mom with on-the-go and messy kids. We are always running to the store, doing errands, taking the girls around, going shopping, etc… So I tend to lean towards comfort and casual.
Here are the tips I follow when putting together a comfortable, casual, mom life approved look…AND still look put together.
- Build your outfit around the sneaker or slip-on, after all this is what makes the look sporty and casual. I find it’s best to stick with something neutral, whether it be black, white, cream or even a blush. These colors will take you far and go with just about everything. I love this particular slip-on from the Dolce Vita Target Collection.
- Choose a great fit in your jeans. Whatever your style, boyfriend, straight or skinny jeans just make sure they fit well. Nothing throws a look off more than an ill-fitting pair of denim. I have to admit, this is extremely hard for me sometimes because my hips and butt aren’t proportioned well with my waist. So for me, I do best with a jean that has a bit of stretch. If you can’t find the right fit, then talk to a local tailor and to alter them, this isn’t as costly as it used to be.
- Add a denim jacket. For some reason, just by adding this the look instantly looks more finished and polished. It’s great for layering the temps are cooler (plus this is a closet staple, it layers over maxi and shift dresses, pencil skirts and an all denim look). And also looks great tied around your waist.
- Accessories are the ultimate way to polish off any look. I can be as simple as wearing a watch and some sunglasses, or a cute dainty necklace and a hat. Whatever you choose, I say keep it simple, this stays with the casual vibe of the look…Honestly, this was a wash my hair day so it was clean and perfect for a few waves, otherwise, I would have thrown on this faux leather cap (I wear it everywhere and have it in this color too!)
Thank you so much for stopping by!
