What To Wear When: You Just Need To Be Comfortable

Do you ever have those days when you just want and need to be really comfortable? That was me last week, I really needed it. While I have plenty of basic black leggings, cotton dresses and Birkenstocks, I wanted that comfort to be rooted in a true Brooklyn sort of way.  It felt ike the right move to wear my bantu-knots for a few days and have my style match my need and my borough. Here’s the full look…

Here’s how to recreate this look:

Grey sweatshirt (I got mine from a thrift store a few weeks ago), black knit-skirt, green Pumas, and bamboo style hoops

    Love the Look. Would really like to see more of this kind. I bring my little ones everyday to Kindergarten and back with bike. I want the outfit to be practical but i want to feel like a Woman again. Any ideas ? Thanks you so much for inspiring me to simply be me

      Thank you for commenting, Elodie!

      I think skirts and sneakers always look SO good together. I also love a pair of nice fitted denim pants and colorful sneakers and a trench (for the fall). I realize layers can make a world of a difference. Also, LIPSTICK if you have any! I feel ten times more ME when I run out the door in the am with some on.

    Its so weird how skirts end up being the most comfy things to wear. I have maybe 4 skirts that I NEVER wear and the other day it was crazy hot & I was lazy but I wanted to be cute and run some errands. I wore a pleated skirt, slip ons and a crop t shirt…I don’t think I’ve ever been that comfy in my whole life.
