These days, I’m alllll about my casual wardrobe staples.
There was once a time where I spent a lot more effort (and money) on fashion. Not to say that I considered myself super-fashionable, but I would feel comfortable saying that I’ve typically been pretty good about at least looking somewhat put together, 95% of the time.
My wardrobe is pretty simple now. My day job is pretty casual in terms of attire, and weekends are also often pretty casual since I’m most likely on the floor playing trucks or doing something else that requires little effort on the wardrobe front.
Then again, let me rephrase…I *could* be spending more time on looking fashionable, but I just don’t have the time or desire right now. ; )
If I had to label my “style” I’d probably sum it up in three words: casual, comfortable, and put-together. Is that four words? Ah well. You get the point.
I’d say I’m most comfortable in a good pair of jeans/jeggings and a flowy top. If there’s any sort of layering, even better. It’s just what I feel most confident in, and comfortable – both physically and mentally.
So while these aren’t anything “mind-blowing,” I thought I’d share three of my favorite casual wardrobe staples. And by staples, I mean that I own anywhere between 3-6 of each of them. I mean, when you find something you love…right?
Short Sleeve Vintage V-Neck T-Shirts from Target
These are my go-to t-shirts for weekends, lounging, and even layering. Whenever the warmer weather decides to arrive (c’mon, spring!) I’m sure I’ll be breaking them out a bit more often.
I’m actually shocked I couldn’t find a photo of me wearing one of these (and ironically enough, I’m actually wearing one right now as I type this, but I just finished an impromptu workout, and ain’t nobody got time to snap a photo, edit, upload, and all that jazz at 9pm!) so a stock photo will just have to do. But, trust me…they’re worn all. the. time. I think at one point when I was working from home more frequently, Jay actually referred to them as my “uniform.”
BONUS: All Tees and Tanks are currently on sale, 3 for $20, so stock up!
Luxe High-Neck Swing Tank from Old Navy
I currently own this top in six different colors. All of you Emily Ley/A Simplified Life followers are probably gasping at me right now, but I just LOVE this shirt because it’s truly just so versatile. Not only that, but the higher neck makes it great for when you’ve constantly got kiddos climbing on you and all that jazz.
In the colder months, it’s my favorite layering tank and winds up going underneath pretty much all of my cardigans. I also love pairing them with a nice, simple necklace, too!
Ignore my snazzy socks + rolled jeans – they were hidden underneath boots during the day!
Super Soft Low Rise Jeggings from American Eagle
These jeggings. Ohhh, how I love them. And, surprisingly enough, I wouldn’t have expected that something labeled “super low rise” would be in my wardrobe at this stage of life. But I really don’t feel like they’re *that* low, and I also like how they don’t give all that added “bulk” from a high-waisted pant.
Does that even make sense? Hopefully it does…
I also have and love these AE Ne(X)t Level Denim X Jeggings in black and also strongly recommend those, too.
BONUS: All jeans and shorts are BOGO 50% off right now at AE!
