Often times when I dress for comfort, I think shoes first and my head goes to sneakers. If my head says with sneakers, my heart says with yoga pants But not everyday can include sneaks and yoga pants, so I have to figure out a sneaky way to dress comfortable but still look polished and pulled together. I want to change the idea of comfort dressing; it doesn’t always have to look messy. (Not to offend the weekend version of myself. You go girl with your yoga pants and sweater and sneaks and the carefully crafted messy half pony, half bun.) Thinking about comfort I always start with denim first. If I’m going for comfort I like to think of soft layers, a tee, a jacket, a cardigan. Anything that I can punch up with a few accessories and a pair of comfortable heels. (Style note: this block heel is coming in hot for spring and it’s a godsend. The thick heel is much easier to take on for a full day than a stiletto.)

I like to mix comfort with chic pieces — a slouchy cardigan with strappy heels. Sneaks with a classic blazer. There are so many ways to mix the world of styled and comfort and they all start with denim. Old Navy introduced their newest fit with their super soft denim — it has equal parts spandex and stretch which means you’ve got equal parts style and comfort. You just can’t beat that combination.

(PS: And if you buy a pair of jeans online your entire order ships free! Or if you’re an in-store kind of girl, the “Try-on-athon”  is going on now through 2/22 and Old Navy will pay you $5 to try on jeans that goes towards a $35 purchase! Friends tell friends about good denim and good sales.)

  1. I don’t usually comment, I love your mix of high and low priced items, Kendi. I am certain these are comfortable but they look cheap. Not your best outfit and sort of a little too hussy for heels. Please ditch the cheap sponsor and get back to doing what you do best, making tasteful and sophisticated choices for everyday wear within a budget.

  2. Chunky heels and jeans are my go-to for everyday. Loved these!

  3. This is such a pretty color on you! I always think sneakers too when it comes to comfort; this is a good reminder that they aren’t the only shoes out there on those days!

  4. I loooove this outfit! I too love dressing comfortable but have a hard time looking polished and cute. I usually end up in jeans, a tee, and toms. Great post!

  5. I’m SO happy to hear the chunky heel is evolving from the beloved bootie style to a sandal. Dreams do come true!

  6. Love the cardigan. I bought the beige aND blue in a medium. The sleeves felt much shorter. What size did you end up getting?

    1. I bought the medium. Do you think sizing up would give more sleeve? I tried this one on in store and liked the way it fit, as compared to some of the other ones. I also notice that it loosens as I wear it, so that might help too!
