Trying to think of a post to follow up my last one hasn't been an easy thing to do. It feels weird to come back to this space with a post featuring an item I was gifted, but friends, putting together posts like these is what brings me joy. Plugging myself back into the world of social media, sharing my whole truth with this community I have surrounding me, that's what makes me excited to get back to my normal routine ... So, with that, thank you all so much for all of your kind words, messages, and for sharing your own stories with me. I will never be able to fully express how grateful I am for each and everyone of you who continue to lift me up from all over the world.
In the spirit of getting back to normal (whatever that means), I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am that it's finally sweatshirt weather! It's finally cool enough outside where I've put away all of my shorts and summer dresses, and I've traded them out for leggings and anything that just screams cozy!
Before Mindy Mae's Market sent this hoodie my way, I had been eyeing it for months. I had multiple friends (including my mom!) send me the link telling me that I needed this hoodie in my life. It's soft, striped, and neutral. Basically my top 3 things when looking for any new piece of clothing these days. 😉 Can we all just throw up a big AMEN that athleisure is now a thing? The fact that I now look stylish rocking my favorite pair of leggings, nikes, a baseball cap, and a sweatshirt just has me throwing up ALL the praise hand emojis! 🙌
On top of hitting all of my key points for the perfect piece that I just have to have, it does all of the cute fall layering for you! No need to throw anything over or under, the double hood (mixed with the different colors) and zipper details give you more than what you could ever ask for in a hoodie.
WHEN TO ROCK THIS OUTFIT
This is my new go-to when it comes to throwing something on to head out the door when I want to look cute, but don't feel like putting a whole lot of effort into putting myself together. Throw it together with your favorite pair of black jeans, booties to dress it up a bit, and a baseball cap to capitalize on the whole minimal effort thing, and you're good to go! You can wear this look running errands, working in a coffee shop, a day of shopping, or to a laid back weekend brunch!
