So I know if you’ve been following this blog for at least a year or so, you’ve definitely heard me pledge my love for Zella. I mean, let’s be real. I pledge it over and over again. But here’s the deal, this blog is about what I wear, and I’m wearing the heck out of Zella. I wear other athleisure brands on occasion as well, but I definitely own the most Zella.
And let’s be honest, sometimes (more often than not), I just wear it to lounge around the house and run around town doing errands. Sure, on occasion I’ll work out in it, but it’s also just great casual everyday wear.
I’ve got some new pieces to share with you, and I’m also excited to share Carter in some Zella pieces as well! Y’all know Carter is all about cozy clothes, and he’s obsessed with his new Zella gear too.
The tee is thin, a great length, and I love the thumbholes. It’s great on its own, but as you can see here, it’s also a great layering piece. The sweatshirt is on the shorter side and it’s boxy, but I happen to really love the fit. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the tee and a small in the sweatshirt.
This tote is nylon, durable, and machine washable. It would be great for the gym.
My cz diamond earrings make an excellent gift. They are a great size and super sparkly.
The leggings are a great color grey, which is what made me want them. They are so smooth on, have a high waist like I like, and fit well. I’m wearing my regular size small, but all reviewers say to size up. The one complaint I have is that they don’t have a pocket.
These exact sneakers are sold out, but you can click HERE for several different color options.
We took these pics over the weekend, and I have to say, Carter was super impressed with the new gear I got him.
And listen, the boy is P.I.C.K.Y. We didn’t start calling him “Captain Comfy” when he was a toddler for nothing.
You can see here how the hoodie is lined with a light fleece like fabric. It meets his Captain Cozy standards, and he said when zipped up, it kept him super warm. We took the dogs on a walk and it was really windy, so he was happy for the added warmth.
The joggers are lined with same light fleece fabric as the hoodie.
Carter has had these sneakers since this summer. He loves them and they have fantastic reviews.
All zipped up and ready to walk the dogs.
My boys. Aren’t they handsome?
And I of course had to hop in for a selfie.
Here’s an outfit that I won’t be working out in, but I will be lounging around in it, running around town in it, and walking the dogs in it.
This fleece hoodie is sooooooooooooooooooooo cozy and warm. It’s going to be great all the time, but it’s going to absolutely PERFECT for ranch trips. The fleece will keep me super warm, the length is great to cover the bum, and I love the thumb holes and the hood for a little extra warmth. For size reference, I’m wearing a small and there’s still lots of room.
After the weather turns really cold, a beanie is a necessity for the ranch. The one I’m wearing just sold out, but this beanie is from the same maker as mine and is super cute. I actually like the darker colors a bit better I think.
Last year I basically made it my personal mission to convince everybody to try these leggings for themselves. In fact, my love was so strong, I named them a MUST HAVE back in November of 2020. Well, here we are a year later, and they are still a MUST HAVE for me. I’m still wearing them at least twice a week. SO SOFT, SO COMFY, and SO CUTE. I love the wide ribbed waistband and the deep pockets.
I wanted to have all of my recent athleisure outfits in one spot, so let’s take a quick trip down memory lane and look at a couple of outfits from a couple of weeks ago.

This jacket is FABULOUS.
It comes in classic black, a vibrant red, and a gorgeous green. I went with this “grey sparrow”, which I actually think of as more of a neutral than grey. In fact, I think it leans a bit bronze. I wanted something that I could easily wear with a bunch of different athleisure pieces as well as with jeans too!
The jacket has the cut of a bomber, but with a relaxed fit. It’s quilted, and y’all know I love the stand-up collar. It has elastic at the cuffs, an adjustable toggle at the waist, and it’s made from completely recycled materials!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small, and it’s still oversized. I would definitely suggest sizing down.

The full zip hoodie sweatshirt is made of a soft cotton blend, and I reach for it ALL THE TIME. It’s warm and incredibly cozy. This is the “grey porpoise”, but it comes in several color choices. I’m wearing a medium and like the fit.
