Happy Friday, babes!  We made it through!  What are your weekend plans?  We are heading out for a date night tonight and trying a new local restaurant called “Cala Lilly’s” in Gibsonia.  Pretty excited!  Tomorrow we have a bonfire at the neighbors’ house, WHICH is a perfect opportunity to wear my new favorite fleece!  I seriously can’t take this thing off!  Lol!

You have probably seen these sherpa fleeces all over the place.  I am maybe one of the last to jump on this trend, unfortunately.  I just wasn’t seeing what the big deal was?!  Then, I found this one on sale, and I thought it looked comfy, so I tried it out.  Well, like I said before, I don’t want to take it off!  It’s so cozy and warm!  The temps have fallen a lot here and I’m back to freezing all day, every day!  So, I’m really pleased with this purchase.  I found this awesome sherpa pullover at Express during their 40% off sale.  They have sales ALL THE TIME.  So, if you don’t want to pay full price, or don’t have a coupon code, just click the heart on the picture of this fleece below, enter your email, and you will get an email when it goes on sale, which I promise you will not be long.  Anyway, I love that this one is cut slightly higher in the front, and longer in the back.  It’s trendy and comfy!  The fleece is so fluffy and soft.  The soft grey color is really pretty, too.  I wasn’t much into them before because I like to dress up a little more when I go out.  But, you can still look cute in comfy clothes!  You don’t have to look like you just rolled out of bed while you’re wearing a cozy fleece.  Here’s how…

When styling a fleece such as this, you want to be comfortable, but still look stylish and put together.  My three trendy tips to do this are to pair it with some NICE leggings, a fresh pair of cute sneakers, and a chic crossbody.  I’m not talking about your old leggings in the back of the drawer with little fuzzy balls all over them because you’ve washed and worn them a million times! Lol.  We ALL have those!  Save those for lounging around the house.  I would suggest if you’re going to rock leggings in public that you invest in some nice ones, such as a pair of faux leather ones like I’m wearing here.  These are from Spanx.  They are so comfortable and look so chic.  You can wear them with sweaters and blazers and other dressier layered pieces and heels, too, so you’re getting more for your money.  They make this fleece look like you put a little more time and effort into looking nice, and they give it a nice bit of edginess, too!  Another legging option I like to style fleeces with is camo!  Camo is totally trending right now, and you can find some cute camo leggings just about anywhere right now.  They make this look a little more interesting than your regular old leggings.  Camo is like a neutral, so you can pair it with any of these neutral toned fleeces and it will look great!

As for footwear for these outfits, I love a cute pair of sneakers.  My current favorite are slip ons, simply because of the ease of getting them on and off.  I am always running late, so anything I can do to save time is a huge help for me!  I love this pair of suede ones I found at Nordstrom last spring.  I found the same pair now at Nordstrom Rack for less and linked them below!  I’ve also included some other cute slip on and lace-up sneakers that would go great with the faux leather leggings and the camo leggings.

Lastly, a nice crossbody in a solid tone makes this outfit look even more casual-chic!  I love this bag by Marc Jacobs.  It is the perfect size for everything I need and possibly a little more (who knows what you’re going to pick up while you’re out running around, right?!).  It has cute zipper and pocket detailing.  It looks great with casual outfits and dressier ones, too!  I love versatile pieces like this!  I’ve linked it below and another really nice black crossbody at a lower price, too.

I hope this helps you to feel more confident rocking your comfy clothes out on the town. Top this look off with your favorite pair of sunnies and you are set! I’ve linked this outfit, my other favorite fleeces (all under $100), and different leggings, sneakers, and a bag at different price points below.  Stay warm this weekend, my friends 🙂
