Happy Friday, friends! It’s Day 5 of 23 Days of Spring Fashion, and I’m styling an elevated sweatshirt and retro runners from Everlane.
This sweatshirt is more elevated than your typical hoodie. It’s made of organic french terry, which gives it a premium feel, and it has some nice details around the zip neckline. It also has a subtle drop shoulder and side pockets.
I really like the length — it isn’t cropped, but it’s not as long as a traditional sweatshirt. It’s really comfortable and easy to throw on with jeans and sneakers for a casual mom-about-town vibe.
This is light heather grey; but it also comes in black, rust (honey), and that pretty light green we’re seeing everywhere this spring. It runs true to size, with a relaxed fit; I have the small.
Just kidding… I promise, I’ll work on integrating some other denim styles into this series, but these really are the perfect compromise between my beloved skinny jeans and the straighter styles that are trending.
I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to fully embrace the wider straight leg jeans. Those just don’t flatter me. Fortunately, we are living in an era of anything goes, and we are free to pick and choose what works for us from the plethora of choices available these days.
These washed black straight ankle jeans have a modern chewed hem, and they’re made of a soft lyocell/cotton/elastane fabric. They were incredibly comfortable right out of the box, and I’ve barely taken them off since I got them.
They also come in a non-distressed version, for those who prefer that, and they run TTS; I have the 28.
These 80’s inspired runners also came from Everlane, and they’re a fun way to do the retro sneaker trend. They’re not as bulky as some, and they’re also very lightweight and comfortable.
These sneakers are true to size, or you could maybe size down if in between. I’m in my usual size 8, and they’re a bit roomy.
Because this look is so casual, I kept my accessories minimal. My 11mm pearl earrings have sold out, but the 9-10mm size is on sale. Amazon also has a pair of faux pearl earrings that will give you same look for a fraction of the price.
And don’t forget your sunnies! Sunglasses are an important accessory, not just for practical purposes, but also for the style factor. Even when you keep your jewelry minimal, or perhaps even more so when you keep your jewelry minimal, adding a pair of stylish sunglasses will make your outfit look more stylish and intentional.
And finally, I carried a casual black shoulder bag. This is also from Everlane, but it has been discontinued, which is so very sad. I love this bag! It’s the perfect size and shape for an everyday shoulder bag. I’m on the hunt for something similar, so stay tuned!
I will wear this outfit for running errands or working from home, and it’s also perfect for attending your kids’ (or grandkids’) sports events… or, in my case, band events. We are so excited that our Covid restrictions lightening up, and we should be able to attend some of R’s indoor drumline competitions this spring!
