Hip Yet Comfy, My Favorite Combo

These pieces work for any age, any size!

I started this blog to share my 20+ years experience in beauty and my passion for learning all things health related BUT, I’m often asked about my outfits so I wouldn’t be serving my audience well if I didn’t occasionally share what I’m wearing. I won’t post links but I will share where I shopped and hopefully someday Liketoknowit will approve me to link items to make shopping easier for you!

I work from home coaching women with their health so I can wear anything I want and that’s usually active wear, but when I freelance doing makeup I like to be equally comfy yet stylish. Friends, we’ve never lived in a better time of fashion! (well, except for the 80s! Where my 80s girls at?) Because I’m 52, I’m mindful of not trying to dress like a 21 year old, but I also like to look youthful and hip because of the industry I’m in. I also work hard on my body and while you’ll never see me in midriffs or miniskirts, I do like to look fit.

So let’s get started: all of these pieces were purchased in the last week so should still be available. My top is Old Navy Activewear. It’s a black sweatshirt that has crisscross panels in the front making for a flattering shape while longer in the back to cover your backside. My ankle boots are from Target and are so easy to slip into due to the deep cut under the ankle. On cold days I might need socks to cover exposed skin but they’re perfect for now, pair these with leggings or skinny pants. My pants were my most surprising discovery. I popped into Rue 21 for my tween daughter and spotted these camo skinny jeans for me. They have lots of stretch making them about as comfy as activewear. I’m normally a size 2 or 4 in ladies pants but because this is a Junior’s store, I’m a size 6. They’re mid-rise so they hide the muffin top but not so high waisted that they are unflattering from the back. I work out hard, especially fighting gravity on my backside, but even super high waisted don’t flatter my booty too well. All of these pieces were around $25 each! An entire outfit for only $75! I’m terrible at accessorizing but you could elevate this outfit to a whole new level with some fun pieces. If you do, send me a photo, I need inspiration in that area!
