caz with a side of jazz


I wanted to do a quick post today to share this outfit because it is SO comfortable and SO affordable!!  I feel like this outfit is casual with a side of jazz.  It’s a step up from just wearing leggings and a tunic, but it still allows you to pull off wearing tennies.  Anything that can look really cute but feel really comfortable, sign me up!  These leggings are a hidden gem because they look dressy (because of the velvet fabric) but they are comfortable enough to sleep in – and anything that can double as pajamas is a win in my book ;).  And on top of that, they are on SUPER SALE right now.  Hurry and get them because sizes are selling out fast!!! (They run TTS).

I also have to say that my tops are a steal!  The t-shirt itself is only $11 and the cardigan is a whopping $13!  You really can’t beat that price for a cardigan and it comes in so many colors!  (The tee is pretty TTS – I got a XS in the t-shirt butprobably could have gotten a S for a little extra length and got a S in the cardigan and it’s great!).  It has a great length to it, a nice fabric weight that will transition to spring and POCKETS!  And my new kicks?  I LOVE the rose gold in the tennis shoe.  I have been on the hunt for a pair of black tennies for a long time, but I want them for comfort (and maybe one day to work out in) and style.  I finally found these that are black with a rose gold accent, that I think dresses them up a bit and gives them a little more flair. 

Also, if you have an Apple iWatch and are late to the game on switching the bands like I am, there are a ton of great/affordable options here.  I feel like I got an entirely new watch by just switching the band for $11.

Oh, oh oh!  And… I have to note, I recently got a new phone (the X) because my “piece” (my older iPhone 6) basically stopped working.  So because of that, I needed a new case/pop socket.  When I was in the store, all of the cases were like $40 and I was like “um did you see how much the phone itself cost?  Cuz my bank account just did and I’m not trying to spend $40 after what I just spent on buying that phone.”  SO, I got on Nordstrom and found this case that I loved for only $20… THEN I went to Amazon and found this one for only $6 that is SO comparable that I decided to give it a try for the price and I LOVE it.  It is so cute, super sturdy, and just perfect for my new phone!  I ended up still getting the pop socket at Nordstrom because they had the one I wanted to coordinate with my new case and I got it within 3 days of ordering it (gotta love Nordstrom’s fast and free shipping!).
