Come on, ladies, you know what I’m talking about. You get up before sunrise (or later, if you are truly lucky), grab your coffee, and head to your closet. First things first, deciding what to wear. You look bewilderingly at all. the. clothes. There are tons of great choices there. But, it’s 6 am (if you’re like me that is), and it’s just too early. So, you grab the first thing you see, a pretty pencil skirt that you pair with a lacy blouse. You look awesome. You feel good. Let’s get this day started!
*Disclaimer: I realize that many people choose their outfits the night before. That is wonderful and if you are one of those people, then I am in awe of you. However, this post is meant for those of us who just can’t get it together the night before: the dog’s zooming through the house, the kids are playing with your makeup, and it’s been ages since you caught up on this season’s Stranger Things. So, something’s gotta give, and guess what, it’s your outfit planning!
You finally make it home that evening. Your feet hurt from the pumps you wore, your skirt keeps riding up, and that lacy blouse is itchier than you remember! You can’t wait to change into something comfy. Cue loungewear.
But what if you could wear really soft, comfortable clothes all day and STILL look put together! Casual/Lounge wear to the rescue!
Let me explain…you aren’t wearing pajamas out and about to the office or coffee shop. But you may as well be.
I wouldn’t exactly call this look Athleisure, although it is similar. This is just a bit more polished than Athleisure. No hoodies or sneakers. Think leggings: regular, faux leather, metallic, fleece, whatever you want! Pick an oversized shirt with a special detail. In the above pics, I chose a fleece Gibson top with a pretty ballet neckline, and paired it with a red lace bralette for an extra touch of flair.
Add booties (leopard, suede, metallic, etc.), or over the knee boots and you will be both comfortable and on trend!
