Lockdown Wardrobe: Outfit Inspiration for Staying at Home

So I was feeling super fashion inspired the other day so I styled, shot and wrote an article on my grad school wardrobe and tips on how to balance comfy and put together style.

There are days when I am super anxious and exhausted, and they are days when the sun is shining, the coffee hits right and TSwift releases a new album. And thus my mental capacity for getting “ready” in the morning also differs wildly. So I decided to break this post into three categories. We have the Extra Cozy for days when only sweats and our softest sweaters will do. Some days you need to be presentable for the camera but still comfortable if you need a lie down mid day. And other days you feel like putting on those jeans, that cute dress and really just relishing in those small pleasures.

I am super excited for the next two years but first wanted to recap what I learned ( from my many trials and errors) for those heading to grad school this fall!
