Thank you to ShopStyle and Express for sponsoring this post.
Here we are during week five of going no-where. While it’s been a journey to say the least, I’ve experienced enough highs and lows to figure out the pattern. My best days are the ones where I wake up before my kids, make my bed, workout, and get dressed. Are we surprised? Lounge-y days can be great days too, but usually just not as productive. My at-home style has shifted a bit since the beginning of quarantine when I binged on sweatpants. But in the spirit of keeping things as “normal” as possible, I’ve started dressing more like my normal self (almost) every day.
When I polled you all about shopping at Express, the response was overwhelmingly positive! Many of you swear by their jeans, other’s love their not-so-basic staples, others a huge fan of their work-wear and date night options. I am so excited to partner with Express for this post to share a few pieces from their new arrivals that I have been wearing at home and feeling my best doing so! Also, everything is 40% off right now so take advantage of these amazing prices!
It’s a Great Day for a Great Day: Summer Weight Sweater + High-Rise Cropped Denim
Sweater + Jeans (more similar styles here)
If I think about my all-time favorite looks, it would probably be some combination of a white top and distressed jeans. When it saw this open-stitch dolman sleeve sweater as part of the Express sweater collection, it was true love. It’s a perfect layer to throw over a tank for chilly nights. I also love it with shorts, or heck, even with sweats! It’s meant to be sheer so a tank underneath is a must, but dare I say that makes it a little sexy?
Many of you told me I had to try Express jeans and they did not disappoint. The pair I got are a stretch denim, but they hold their shape. Sadly my pair is sold out, but you can shop the same style here and you can check out all of their denim styles here. I love that they come in short, regular and tall. I am wearing my normal size (25) in short for reference. They are a bit cropped, so I would say if you are 5’4 – 5’7 you should stick with regular sizing.
Zoom in on This: Puff Sleeve Tee + Jeans
Puff Sleeve Tee + Jeans (more similar styles here) + Flip Flops
If you asked me in January if what to wear for a Zoom conference was even on my radar, I would probably look at you and say, “What’s Zoom?” Wow how times have changed fast. My favorite thing to wear during any kind of video chat whether it be for work or with friends is something with a puff sleeve. It’s like you tried without trying. Staying on trend while staying comfy. This tee is a no-brainer.
Everyday is like FRI-YAY: Romper + Fun Lightweight Earrings
Satin Romper + Earrings + Sandals
Rompin’ around….. my yard? My house? My laundry room? Feels like wearing pajamas, yet somehow I also feel like a million bucks. And during these days, there is something to be said for that. Looking for a date-night at home outfit? Just add these fun earrings (light as air) and this fun, flirty romper!
Backyard Staycation: Hi-Lo Maxi Dress
If I close my eyes and imagine real hard, my backyard transforms into a tropical resort. Ok really, I just play reggae music, make a fun cocktail and wear a beachy dress. It’s equal parts comfy and chic and we all deserve to get some vitamin D in style. This might be my favorite version of self-care these days… relaxing outside!
And because I couldn’t stop there, here are a few more pieces from Express that will enhance your at-home life…..
