Hanes: The Key to Comfydence

Hanes: The Key to Comfydence

Thanks to Hanes for sponsoring this post.

A girlfriend of mine recently told me she’s given up wearing thongs for good which not only deepened my respect for her but directly resulted in a feng shui attack on my own underwear drawer. Obviously there is a time and place for certain styles, but day to day I’m on her same page  – comfort FTW.

Fortunately for us, we live in a time where comfortable underwear is not synonymous with parachute pants. Where cute cotton briefs are actually cute and wire-free bras are not just for sport.  We’re in an era of active wear being worn to nightclubs, so why on earth would one subject themselves to anything less when it comes to their underwear? As Hanessays, “Comydence starts from the inside out – literally.”

In continuing my partnership with Hanes, we’re again focusing on more of their pieces that start your day off right, are made to live in and that make a difference in how you feel.

In this post I’m wearing the Hanes Ultimate ComfortBlend T-Shirt Unlined Wirefree Bra paired with the Hanes Ultimate Comfort Cotton Hipster Panties.

Talk French To Me: How To Dress Like A French Woman

Talk French To Me: How To Dress Like A French Woman

Last week I was busy dreaming up a winter escape to Paris when the new Karl Lagerfeld Paris lookbook landed in my inbox for a shoot with Vogue (I say this casually as if it happens all the time, ha!). My daydreaming inspired my outfit selection, which included a beret and some leopard print loafers.

When it comes to style, no one does it like the French with their effortlessly chic, ‘I just threw it on and look this cool’ ability to style.

So what are the ‘rules’?

1. Don’t follow the trends. Keep it simple with solid staple pieces – a leather biker jacket, a casual white tee, skinny jeans, a red lip.

2. Investment pieces. Build your closet with timeless investment pieces that you can pair back with the above – a printed silk scarf, a leather quilted crossbody, statement shoes…

3. Bed head. Roll with it.

4. Keep it neutral. All black, creams, earth tones, basics…and buy a striped t-shirt.

5. Slouchy is good.

The Grey Plaid Trend

The Grey Plaid Trend

If you’ve recently spent any time roaming around for fall essentials (or on Instagram, while we’re at it), chances are you’ve seen a pattern –literally and figuratively. As it is the case with every season, there’s always that one trend that seems to be the golden thread through all shops and brands. By now it’s pretty clear that this Fall, grey plaid (and especially gray plaid suits) are taking over the reigns. Checks and gingham first made appearances during runway season earlier this year, and with my unwavering love for all things Alexander Wang, you best believe I was sold on the spot. Be it oversized and boxy cuts or form-fitted suits, almost every major label incorporated the trend, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that high-street labels jumped on the bandwagon.

Blazers, coats, pants and skirts – the infatuation is real. And if you’re anything like me, you want them all and you want them now. Lucky for you, I did some scouting for all of us and rounded up my favorite pieces to wear this fall:
