Thank you to Riders by Lee for sponsoring this post
While winter temperatures have yet to truly arrive here in NYC, I’ve been taking full advantage of the milder temps. Since we can go from warm and sunny to cool in one day, I find pairing light weight pieces does the trick while I’m out enjoying my weekends. In collaboration with Riders by Lee, I’m sharing how I define my style while moving forward this season.
While I love to look polished, comfort and ease plays a significant role when deciding what to wear on the weekends. I’m a soccer mom so I need pieces that I can move around in while I’m on the field or in the stands. Simultaneously, the blogger in me yearns to still look stylish and on trend. Truth be told, a great pair of jeans check off all of those requirements. However, being full-figured can often become an obstacle when shopping for a good fitting pair of denim for different ocassions. Riders by Lee jeans are not only budget friendly, they come in various cuts perfect for both our curves and our various lifestyles. Personally, my go-to are their mid-rise skinny cut which hugs my curves without being restricting. Trust me when I say that their jeans move with you! From cheering my daughter on while running up and down the soccer sidelines (yes I’m that mom) to getting my steps in by walking miles through Brooklyn-they’re so easy to wear and I can see them becoming an all-season staple. While they are traditionally paired with sneakers, how about going the preppy route by pairing it with loafer mules, like I did. It’s a certainly a chic way of updating a denim look.
After soccer practice the other weekend, we took a walk down to the Brooklyn Promenade to grab some lobster rolls from Luke’s Lobster and cleansed our palette with ice cream from Ample Hill all located at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Though the sun was out, being near the water, brought some cooler temps. Thankfully, I paired my velvet blazer with my Riders by Lee chambray button down and mid rise skinny jeans. I love mixing denim washes as I find regardless of the shade, they always go quite well together. I always get excited to find a chambray top that can become a staple that find it’s way into my closet for years to come. It was the perfect detail to the casual tuxedo denim look I was going for.
Another great aspect about Riders by Lee is that they can be found at outlets throughout the U.S. Retailers like Walmart, Kmart and even Amazon sell these pieces and at such affordable prices at that. Not to mention, they also come in plus size too. Mark my words when I say, you won’t be disappointed. Find the nearest store near you here.
