Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!! Wow, it’s been quite some time since I photographed for a new OOTD. This one was quite spontaneous but something I’ve been throwing on very often. Recently the comfy/casual look has been very popular, specifically in streetwear. I’m personally a huge fan of this since I love a good baggy sweatshirt and a pair of tennis shoes. Outfits that can transform from gym sessions to everyday style is something you simply can’t miss out on! So without further ado, here is my comfy athleisure outfit for a day at the gym and being a straight up Girlboss!
So it’s actually been super rainy out here in California lately…like flooding has occurred. Which is honestly kind of scary seeing this much rain but on the up side, gives me TONS of opportunities to bring out all the hoodies and beanies that I want! It’s a whole new world out here, people!! As a lot of you know, I’m absolutely in love with any black clothing item. For some reason in recent years especially I’ve loved an all black look. I think that’s one reason why I’m obsessing over this simple black cropped hoodie from H&M. I don’t own any other cropped hoodies but I’m honestly super into it. As far as the cut goes, it has the classic hood with draw strings in the front.
I’ve actually worn this hoodie multiple times now to the gym. It’s been perfect for workouts considering I don’t like wearing tops that are constricting. I prefer going with something more loose on the top that I can just throw on in the mornings (which is when I usually work out). I’ll push up the sleeves if I get too warm, but since it’s been so cold and rainy, I love this piece even more. With this sweatshirt, I’ll wear my usual Lulu Lemon high waisted workout pants or another high waisted variation from Nordstrom (usually the brand called Zella).
On this particular day though, I paired this comfy sweatshirt with some high waisted jeans. The fit is a bit looser than normal denim, so I consider these my mom jeans since they’re very high waisted. These jeans have a very unique hemline at the ankle; the front portion is much shorter than the back, giving a cool geometric look or 90% angle (you can see this in the left photo). I get all my denim from a little store in my town that I’ve been going to for years. I’ve mentioned this store countless times on the blog, but I got these jeans at Melrose in the O.C. I’m not sure if you can get these jeans on their site, but I’d recommend taking some time to look around! Literally all of the pieces they offer are to die for!
Alright, on to accessories and the focal point of this look: my red checkered Vans!!! Guys, I’m so in love with this red kicks, I seriously can’t get over it. I’m not normally one to buy red but I got these for Christmas and I’ve been trying to find any excuse to wear them. I think they look best with a simple outfit like this so they have the opportunity to stand out. I’ve had the original black and white checkered Vans for quite some time now and have completely worn them down. It was definitely time for a new pair and these are just SO unique! Plus, they match our blooming bougainvillea plant, which has just been looking so lovely.
As for my necklace, I completely spaced and forgot to get a decent photo of it. However, it’s from Madewell and it’s a simple gold chain with small stars wrapping all around it. I’ve been super into the whole galaxy (moon, stars, constellations) accessory trend recently, so I’ve been wearing it everyday! It’s another piece that really adds a pop of shine to any outfit, especially if it’s a simple look like this.
Let me know what you think of this OOTD down in the comments! How are you staying comfy and cozy (but still killing it) during this chilly and rainy season? I’d love to know! P.S. enjoy this goofy photo of me because I rarely post anything silly on this blog. Maybe we’ll change that up, LOL! Have a great rest of your week and talk to you all very soon! xx
