off duty style




I always wanted a job where I could wear pencil skirts & button downs, & I am so very thankful for my role as a teacher & the wardrobe that comes with the territory, but I can't always be "on duty" in my professional gear. In my down time I wear many hats - pug mom, wife, friend, Nashvillian, couch potato, adventure seeker, to name a few - & I need my style to be both comfortable & chic to face what is lined up on my iCal next!

One of my style + comfort secrets? Half of the time, I'm actually wearing a sports bra! I like having the girls under control, but I hate feeling constricted. Hanes has always been my go-to sports bra source (see this pro sports bra post from 2013), but their new updated styles are giving me total heart eyes!

I also have a confession: I have long been staunchly anti leggings as pants, but I might have to take back that stance after meeting these Hanes leggings. They are the perfect base for my style now & I know they will continue to be favorites straight into Fall. I like that they are long, heavy enough fabric to not be see through, & high rise - so I feel fully covered. Even this time of year I am living in a neutral foundation (including these basic Hanes tanks that I have been stealing from my husband for years!), adding accessories with lightweight scarves & slouchy layers (blame the Southern AC blast!). I am totally a Summer girl, but the prospect of adding my boot collection to the mix already makes me seriously giddy!
My down time silhouette? Long tunics, skinny pants/leggings & fun accessories to add color & personality. Style AND comfort are important to me, & I refuse to have to sacrifice either. How do you maintain your style even when you are not fully done up?
