Silky Separates

Silky SeparatesThis outfit is comfy as hell. Honestly it feels like I’m in fancy silky pajamas and that is a feeling I can get on board with.

I picked up these pants from Theory in Vegas last year and oh my – talk about comfy. These are the perfect jogger style pant in a silk-blend fabric that can go from dressy (with a nice top and accessories) to casual (with a tee and sneakers) – no problem. They’ve been such a staple in my wardrobe for the last year. If you haven’t already gone out and grabbed a pair of these, check out my post on Double Duty Joggers for my top picks!

A recent purchase I’m very pleased with myself about is this top from Express. It’s also a silk-blend and intended to be reversible – they have a bunch of color combos to choose from, but this awesome forest green is the same on both sides so it’s really just a perfectly thick, double-lined top. The straps are a perfect length to go day to night and you can wear tucked or untucked; in my case half-tucked since I like things to look a little undone and easy.

I love this look with long layered chains, but I went with this statement necklace from H&M to elevate things a little. Accessories totally change the feel of an outfit, and it generally takes me trying out a few combos before I feel I’ve really struck the chord I’m after.

Let me know what you think in the comments below, and if you have any secretly comfy clothing recommendations I’m all ears.

  Is anyone else totally obsessed with NYX cosmetics lately? I realize I am super late to the beauty party here, but I feel like I need to give them a five-star review. I have always loved matte lipsticks…

Chic Chokers

Currently loving this throwback to the 90’s! I’ve been wearing chokers a lot lately (check out my Instagram for a recent shot of Aldo‘s version). I’m finding they create really cool proportions when layered with long chains, but also totally…
