In case you hadn’t noticed, I am obsessed with the 1970s this season. Although the fall 2019 season has trends taking inspiration from multiple decades, there is something about the 1970s which is both nostalgic and comforting; that is drawing me into any trend from the era I can find.
While cropped jeans weren’t really a thing in the 1970s, wide leg jeans were. Therefore, I feel like these jeans can cheat a little bit in a 1970s inspired look. The fabric is also really soft; which makes these jeans super comfortable. I definitely need to wear them with a heel though, or else the wide leg and cropped silhouette easily adds weight to my 5’4″ frame.
The athleisure trend is still up and running; with no signs of slowing down. How could it? Everyone loves being able to wear street to gym clothing, as well as comfortable looks which are un-fussy, machine washable, and feature the ultimate IT items. Another thing to love about athleisure? Classic sportswear that doubles as IT items! Love that!
If you have been following along, you may have already noticed how much I love adidas clothing, accessories, and footwear. I have been wearing adidas my whole life, and their quality is unmatched. Another reason I love adidas is that their clothing and accessories have an IT factor; and you know I love IT items!
Adidas Superstar sneakers are a classic street sneaker. They have been around for years, and everyone loves them. They are extremely high quality; I wear mine all the time and they just don’t wear out! In addition, they are the IT street sneaker to own. All the teens and adults around here love them. The teens favor black stripes on white, while adults will grab any color combo they love. These are definitely the shoes to own! I love that the ultimate IT shoe is a comfortable sneaker, and not a pair of 5″ stilettos! Ha!
I also need to give these sweatpants a shout-out. They are classic addias, three-stripe sweatpants. This pair of sweats is very comfortable, washes well, and is another closet staple, everyone owns! If you don’t have a pair yet-you seriously need one! The first time my son’s baseball coach saw me wear these sweatpants he said, “Hey! You’re livin’ that three-stripe life!” Why yes, yes I am!
The black sweatshirt I am wearing in the photo at the top of this post is my favorite go-to sweatshirt. My daughter stole the blue one I own from me, and she wears it all the time. Thankfully I still have this black one! This is another classic IT item worn by both teens and adults. It is cozy, comfortable, and washes well. Love it!
Can we have a moment to chat about this backpack? I know it’s a sports backpack with all the features needed for sports practices, hiking, and camping; but I have another use for it. This is my ultimate carry-on when I fly! The back of the backpack has some padding on it, which protects my laptop. Since there are two sections, I use the back one with the padding for my laptop, iPad, and cords. The front compartment holds my toiletries, a book, scarf, and other items I might carry on the plane. The smaller compartments hold smaller items such as my wallet, keys, ID, and more! It also fits perfectly underneath the seat in front of me whether I am flying coach, biz class, or first class. It’s the perfect size! Plus, it’s nice to have a backpack while navigating the airport!
In addition to using as a carry-on when I fly, I use my adidas backpack for camping (I am a girl scout troop leader), hiking, road trips, and anytime I need a backpack. It’s my workhorse bag-and you know I am a handbag/bag girl 😉 I prefer this backpack over a tote bag any day. Love it!

Now that I have written a six hundred word essay on my love for adidas, tell me about your favorite classic items from adidas?
If you have been following along, you know I am a huge Soma Intimates fan. So when they sent me their new Soma Vanishing 360 Bra, Soma Vanishing 360 panty, and Soma Vanishing Pants, I knew I had to share them with you!
Underwear lines are something women have dealt with for years. There are so many brands out there claiming to have the ultimate products which disappear underneath clothing. While many don’t show thick lines under clothing, there isn’t anything out there that actually vanishes while being comfortable, and staying in place. How many times have you tried panties which don’t show lines, but also move all over the place? If I wanted to wear a thong, I would buy one! I wouldn’t wear a full coverage panty that rides. . .well you know where! Annoying, right??
Soma has always made underwear that stays in place, so when they sent me their Soma 360 Vanishing panty, I had high hopes. My hopes were well placed! These stay put! Yay! They also don’t show lines under pants; another yay!
I also want to give these pants a shout out. They have a hidden layer which helps hide lines, so if you aren’t wearing panties that vanish underneath your clothing, these pants will take care of that for you. They are a great pair of classic black pants which can be worn in any season; casual or dressy. Love that!
