I think the word “chic” can be slightly overwhelming and intimidating. We think “chic” means a pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos or a bold red lip color. One of my favorite styles right now though is what I like to call “easy chic”. Casual, simple, and yet you still feel your best. My easy chic looks typically incorporate my new favorite pair of flare jeans with a great statement necklace.

When it comes to tops, I have two weaknesses: feminine shoulder details, and anything flowy, which is why I’m obsessed with this off-the-shoulder floral top! Nothing says spring like florals and I love that this one is a soft floral print, and has a subtle/organic look to it. (Also, the price is too good to pass up!)

Boyfriend jeans have also always held a special place in my heart – until I found this pair of “his girl jeans”. First of all, $58 for jeans? Yes. Second of all, the fit is SO comfortable, I don’t even feel like I’m wearing jeans!

I’ll be honest – 99% of my wardrobe does not include prints or patterns, and if it does…it’s something simple like plaid or stripes. I highly value simplicity in clothing. Something about these pants though just caught my eye the second I saw them. I love how 70’s-inspired they are, how comfortable they look, and how they’re an instant attention-getter! They have been such a fun addition to my wardrobe!
I’m such a sucker too for a good chambray top. I have at least 3 button-down denim shirts in my closet. Felt the need to add a fourth though when I tried this one on – it’s so soft, amazing quality and I love how it drapes!

there’s something so wonderful about a good sweater that you can throw on with skinnies and have a complete outfit. yes, it’s always fun to dress up and layer and accessorize, but I think there’s so much beauty in simplicity as well.
Random fact about Lauren: I majored in Apparel Merchandising at Baylor (sic ‘em!) and one of my classes was Trend Forecasting. I remember in that class we talked about the difference between trends and staples. For example – a trend is something that is cool for a season, then goes out. Like, way out. Think jelly sandals in the 90’s. A staple is something that you can buy and wear season to season because it’s classic and timeless. I’m sure you’ve seen tons of plaid this year, paired with fur (or faux fur!) vests. In my opinion, I think this is becoming a classic look and one that we’ll continue to see year after year!
I love this combo (of plaid and faux fur) because it somehow feels cute and comfy, yet chic all at the same time. It’s such an easy look to throw on for running errands, or dress it up with a pair of leather leggings for a date night out.

There might be 12 days of Christmas but there are 3 days of Thanksgiving: travel day, turkey day, and black friday. All of which require their own distinct outfits! Have you planned yours out yet?
Travel day: Whether you’ll be in a car or on a plane, comfort & layers are key. I love this legging pant because it can still look dressed up but they are comfortable enough to sleep in!

For Turkey Day: We all want to look our best on Thanksgiving Day with all our loved ones, but also need something that allows for lots of turkey and lots of lounging. I love this sweater dress look below from Madewell because it looks so chic but so comfortable at the same time!
For Black Friday: If you dare brave the crowds on black Friday, you’re gonna need your sneakers on. Lo’s favorite sweatpant jean is now 50% off and would be perfect for black Friday shopping! Pairing these jeans with a white tee & Vince sneakers is the perfect comfy/chic look
