As you guys know, casual style is basically all I know right now. With being a first-time mama, it's hard to really want to get fully dressed up and out the door. One reason being, I don't make many plans outside of the home. Second reason being, I had an emergency c-section and leggings are the only comfortable thing right now. Third reason being, I get no sleep and need an easy transition from pajamas. Although all of those resin are true, I'm still a fashion blogger and love to feel put together even if it's only to be at home with my little one. I'm excited to share this casual fall look with you babes because it makes comfy chic way too easy.
Casual Style You Can Live In
I have never been more into casual cute looks before in my life. I am constantly looking at ways to dress up leggings to make myself feel better about wearing them every single day. This XCVI jacket from Zappos is the perfect piece to do just that. I can easily pair it over leggings and a tee to make my basic look way more stylish. I can also pair it with jeans and booties to totally dress it up (while still of course keeping my comfort level high!). Having casual pieces, I can live in is key with being a new mama, especially as my crazy little boy continues to grow.
I have never been a huge leggings wearer for so many reasons. Mainly because I felt like you had to sacrifice style in order to wear them. Learning how to style different looks with leggings has been the key to making me feel good. It's not just leggings and t-shirts or leggings and a tank. I now know to use a statement piece like this XCVI jacket or shoes to bring my look from basic to stylish in seconds.
About the Brand: XCVI
The brand is all about designing fashion you can live in. It was created in by Gita Seltzer who saw a huge issue with casual wear. It was never stylish and usually always ended "sloppy or stale". In 1996 (XCVI in Roman numerals), Gita introduced her first season of the line and never looked back. XCVI is now run by her daughter & son and the line is still all about pieces you can live in.
I love shopping the brand through Zappos for so many different reasons. They have the best selection and make finding the right piece really easy. I also earn back rewards points which is a huge bonus for shopping in the future. Shop my jacket here as well as other XCVI pieces here.
