I am sitting here writing this in my office (my dining room table lol,) the sun is shining, and my kids are cleaning their rooms. Life is pretty good! We have a fun week coming up with my daughter’s band concert, basketball games and practice for my son, and then Saturday we are going to the Nutracker! I can’t wait. It is one of my favorite traditions that my daughter and I do (the boys stay home…)
Anyway, let’s chat about my weekly looks (and I’ll go into detail about the new jeans I fell in love with this week that don’t break the bank! #praisehands
For those that are new here…I’ve been documenting my daily looks on video via Instastories and IGTV, and adding them into my Shop My Instagram Looks page each day. You can click on each picture there and there are links to each piece I am wearing. I update it every single day. These are truly outfits I am wearing in my real life, and in real-time. Let’s get started!
***Note! It takes a lot of time to research, link, and write detailed newsletters + posts, and I DO get a commission if you buy something from a link I give you. That being said, some stores are harder to get this commission from. I just ask, if you love something I suggest from Target or another local store, I appreciate if you buy through a link I give you and either ship it to store or to your home. That is how I get paid! I appreciate anything you can do to help me continue to create content for you that helps and inspires you!
This is a little different than my typical daily look, but honestly…this is what I am wearing 5 days a week from 7-11 am. I have these tops from Amazon in a bunch of colors, they are the only workout tops I own and wear right now! I love the higher neck, how they dip down on the sides for air flow, and that they are simple. I love these so much a couple of my gym friends bought them too, and now we all match most days;) And these leggings are from Amazon, too! I wear these mostly to run in, they are NOT squat proof at the gym (they are a bit sheer bending over…) but if you do simple yoga, walking or running, these are great. I wear a size small in the pants and the tops!
***I do wonder if I had the leggings in a medium if they would be as sheer bending over? I feel fine in the small, but just food for thought!
Okay! Let’s chat about these jeans! You guys, I am in love!!!!!!! They are from Old Navy and fit and feel so freakin’ good, I have found that I reach for them daily. I ordered two sizes during (Black Friday) BF week and found that my true size (6) felt the best. They stretch a little bit as you wear them, but not obnoxiously. I LOVE the straight legged style, they have the elongating look of skinny jeans without the super tight fit. These are quality jeans, and I want them in more colors! Get ready to see these A LOT. They are currently 30% off with the code HURRY. They feel comparable in quality and fit to Madewell jeans.
Also, if you don’t own a Barefoot Dreams cardigan and have been eyeing one, they are worth it! I get mine over on QVC when they run deals and Easy Pay. I love the softness of these sweaters and they are just so cozy. I love grabbing them in neutral colors so they last me forever. They are a splurge, but if you can, these are amazing.
I love this thinner one!
This is the exact one I own!
So I saw a fave influencer of mine wearing this sweater, and then immediately went and ordered it! You all KNOW I love a slouchy sweater, and this one is awesome. I am also a big fan of anything that falls off the shoulder. This sweater is long enough to wear with leggings, and you can have it fit on the shoulder as well. If it comes back in stock in black I am DEFINTELY grabbing one! I am wearing the size small and it is perectly oversized.
And these jeans! Another BF splurge that I saved up for during their 30% off sale. I had these jeans in a smaller size and felt it was time to size up. I ordered these in the Curvy size after owning another pair and fell in love. Curvy has a smaller waist and bigger hip ratio, and they fit like a glove. If you have an hourglass figure, you’ll love them. I bought these in the size 28 (6) and love them. My other ones were a size 27, and while they fit, these are more comfortable!
** I am currently selling my Madewell black skinnies (size 27) on Poshmark, username meaganrigney!
Another “real life” oufit for you! I generally wear something like this for half the day, and then get dressed the other half, but figured I share these types of looks as well. I thought this particular fleece pullover was still available this year, but they have really similar versions right now that look just as yummy and comfortable! I have a *slight problem with hoarding cozy pullovers + jackets, I love wearing them to the gym over my workout clothes. My gym (CrossFit) is not heated or air conditioned, so I need warm things to wear until we warm up a bit in class each day this time of year.
And these leggings…I have owned them for 4+ years and they are THE BEST. They are from Victoria Secret Sport, the high rise knockouts, and I love them. However, full disclosure, when I read reviews for them now I see that they might have changed the design and there are mixed reviews. I can’t vouch for what is offered now, but I know that I have about 4 pairs of these high rise knock out tights and they are amazing. They continue to be my favorite and I really hope the ones they are selling now are just as good!
I kinda feel like this has been my uniform lately. When the weather gets chilly here and I want comfort, I reach for my graphic sweatshirt from Target, a pair of jeans, and my Adidas sneakers. I love that I can add in a cute Victoria Emerson wrap bracelet, toss on a crossbody bag, and be ready to go. Also note, the Old Navy jeans I am never going to stop wearing…;)
