The Real Deal

January 25, 2016 5 Comments


Guys, if you run into me on any given Sunday, this is what you’re going to get. Comfortable kicks, dirty hair concealed by a cute hat, and many, many layers. The more layers I have on, the higher the carb count at brunch. This was two three pancakes + butter level layering.
Is butter a carb? (10 points for you if you get that pop culture reference 🙂 ).



So, this is what I wear when I just can’t even. Yes, I have those days too! Even though styling my wardrobe is one of my favourite things to do, sometimes I’d rather spring for comfort over style. But being comfortable and looking good are not mutually exclusive – the key to looking presentable and being comfy are these Banana Republic Sloan Ankle pants. I’ve raved about these before, but I swear they are magic. They are so flattering, they come in a variety of colours and patterns, and the price is right.
I used to struggle with finding nice pants – I loved my jeans, but all my dress pants were…too dressy. These BR Sloans are the perfect length for a pump or a flat and as you can see, they’re easy to dress down too. Win!


I bet you’re thinking  “Wow, Jocelyn. Sneakers, a baseball cap, and comfy pants. You just wore the equivalent of loungewear and called it an OOTD”. Well, you wouldn’t be wrong. This is the real deal! I try to stay as genuine as possible on the blog – I don’t wear heels to go for pancakes and then to the mall, and I’m not going to pretend like I do. Besides, “athleisure” wear is in 😉 and it’s not going anywhere, anytime soon!



Happy Monday, friends!

    […] do like the athleisure trend, but I can’t pair sneakers with all my outfits. Enter – platform wedges. I love […]

    Hi, Friend!

    I'm Jocelyn: a daydreamer and fashion lover disguised as a finance professional. My head may be in the clouds, but my stilettos are firmly planted on the ground ;)
