Keeping it Casual.

Recently I’ve been super motivated to clean out the old, worn and unused items in my closet to make room (and money) for things that I actually love and wear. One part of my closet that’s taken a hit is the ‘comfy clothes’ pile: IE sweatshirts, sweatpants and t-shirts. I figured it’s worth the $$$ to invest in polished sweats that I can actually wear outside the confines of the apartment. Let’s be honest, there’s certainly no need to hold on to a high school t-shirt that’s riddled with shameful ice cream stains…

So, where’s the first place I thought to look? Madewell of course. It’s the perfect place for high quality basics with an All-American vibe that never go out of style. Let’s just hope my tendency to spill is gone for good, just like those stained clothes are.

Currently Coveting: Athleisure.

Let’s be honest: athleisure is not a new concept. It’s been at least a year since this trend took over the fashion world and here we still are… passing off sweats as fashion and calling it street style. Don’t get me wrong – I’m obsessed. It’s brilliant – genius even. Anything that makes my most comfortable clothes acceptable in the outdoor world is 100% Jessica Approved. Winking Face on Apple iOS 10.2

So, how do you style your athleisure gear to feel on-trend? Try throwing on fishnets under a pair of sweats or wear a matching sweatshirt and pant with some pointed-toe boots. If you style your casual pieces with something unexpected, you’re sure to look street style chic. (Cliché, yet appropriate!)
