I NEED TO BE COMFORTABLE.
There, I said it.
And I know I am not alone (I KNOW you all agree with that above statement!).
So along with wanting fabulous fashions (some trendy looks, other classic looks, altogether stylish), I also look at the comfort level of these pieces.
I was at Old Navy (I know, shocking right?).
So I am perusing the racks of promotional and sale items (we all know I love a good sale) and I found the prettiest dusty rose hued jogger pants. They are chic and BEYOND comfortable! Cue the adjourning wall, with a fab bomber jacket! I grabbed that faster than you can say sleek, which made me the happiest customer around.
Here’s my fascination with a bomber jacket. First off, you can wear it with anything…ANYTHING. A flared skirt, a pair of denim, a leather pencil skirt, tailored shorts, you name it! I have been in the market for one and here I come upon a grey bomber on sale. And need I even mention how comfortable it is?
Do not feel that a comfort level stops at clothing. Not even close. I’m talking footwear, blog readers! I am the first to admit guilt in buying a couple pairs of pumps that hurt after 5 minutes but they look so chic that I deal with the pain. I try to tell myself I am older and wiser now, and I pay close attention to the make of the shoe. I have found that some pointy toe pumps are beyond comfortable on my feet and others are downright painful. It doesn’t only depend on the brand (some BCBG’s fit me perfectly and other BCBG’s squeeze my toes too much), but it depends on the type of shoe. Try it on. Walk in it. Does the ball of your foot hurt a lil too much in this short time? Is the sole padded? Is there enough breathing room in the toe? Can you handle the height and width of the heel?
Trust me, I asked myself all of these questions in regard to these Sam Edelmans, and they really are comfortable. As they should be.
We have enough stressors in our lives. Why should our wardrobe add to that? Choose items that are stylish, chic and above all, comfortable.
