I must admit that I do prefer to be mostly comfortable when it comes to clothing. I feel like if you are uncomfortable it can be distracting and obvious to everyone around you and therefore whatever you are doing can suffer because all you can think about is how much your feet hurt, or tight your pants are, or whatever it is. I do not however, compromise style for comfort — okay except for when it’s freezing cold — I’ll wear anything to not be cold.

So when I find clothing and shoes that are fashionable and comfortable, it’s such a win-win. You know you’ll end up wearing those items so much more than anything else in your closet. Think about it — what items do you reach for most often?

Remember how Birkenstocks got popular again last summer? Well, these leather Isabel Marant Holden leather slides, are a high fashion / mod version of comfy Birkenstocks. They also remind me of when I used to have a pair of these Adidas slides when I was in high school. Everyone who was an athlete had them, and honestly they were freaking awesome. I’d still wear them if I had them (around the house). Back to the Isabel Marant version — I’d wear these almost everywhere.

I love finding outfits that I can wear a white tee with, and dress it up or down. When you wear a baggier pant, especially with flats, you need to keep it tight on the top. To do that with a white tee, just tuck the tee in tight and wear a shrunken jacket. You can easily throw on some black heels, trade out your necklace for some statement earrings and a clutch to dress this outfit up for night.
