SHOP THE LOOK
If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the last few years of being on my own for holiday shopping (AKA being grown up, married and having to buy Christmas gifts for everyone in the fam on my own), it’s that they key to a less-stressful holiday season is to start buying gifts early. That means as soon as November hits, this girl is crossing those off her nice list. Regardless of how early after Halloween you start shopping, the holiday season promises to be a busy one when it comes to shopping, so feeling comfortable when you’re navigating the parking lots and crowded malls is absolutely necessary. That’s why I’m teaming up with my friends at Hanes for a holiday shopping outfit that’s both comfortable and affordable.

I’ve already talked about how Hanes’ line of cozy and affordable basics for women can help you keep you find your comfydence by keeping you cool during warmer months, and stay cozy all day long, but today I’m talking about on-the-go essentials. Whether or not you’re a yoga fan, we can all thank the popularity of the practice for making stretchy leggings mainstream, and it’s quickly become a wardrobe staple of mine. As much as I love dressing up, when it comes to doing things like grocery or holiday shopping, this girl will always be found in stretchy leggings, sweats and tees. In fact, if I happen to need to run errands after a photoshoot, I will always go home first or bring a cozy outfit to change in. When you’re trying to find that perfect gift for some or crossing every item off your grocery list, the last thing you want to worry about is uncomfortable clothes or shoes, which is why Hanes has become such an essential in my life.
For today’s outfit (which I saved for last in my shoot so I could go shopping afterwards!), I wore amazing Hanes Sport Performance Women’s leggings, which are currently on sale for just $11.99 and come in lots of neutral hues. I love that the leggings are fitted but still breathable. I could literally wear them to sleep! When it comes to finding a top or sweater to wear with leggings, I usually like to find a long one with coverage (ya know what I mean?!) and this Women’s Raglan Long Sleeve Tee by Hanes was the perfect match. The tee is currently only $5 y’all, and I love the loose fit + it’s tag-free so you don’t have to worry about any of those pesky itches! I ordered the tee in a medium because I wanted to ensure a loose fit, but I think I would have loved the small too. While the weather has been a bit confused here in Dallas lately (yesterday it reached the 90’s), it’s always essential to keep a zip up hoodie or cardigan with you when shopping (because even if it’s cold outside, they certainly like to keep it cold in the stores!) I absolutely love this Hanes EcoSmart Zip Up Hoodie. It’s so easy to tie around your waist or carry in your tote, and it’s only $10 right now! Last, but certainly not least, it’s equally as important to be comfortable under your outfit. Lately I’ve been living in the amazingly comfortable Cool Comfort Microfiber Hipster Panties by Hanes.
