Remember our mothers saying, “put on your play clothes and go outside”? In my mother’s case, she probably just wanted to get us out from underfoot 😆 but I was happy to oblige. (Even if I sometimes grabbed a book 📕 on my way out, and spent several hours curled up with it in the shade.)
This post is sponsored by Nordstrom. All ideas and opinions are my own.
My childhood “play clothes” were usually fun, colorful, and (most of all) comfortable. I think we adults need our own version of play clothes too: easy and comfortable styles for hanging out, playing with grandkids (or the dog), gardening, or whatever else constitutes “play” in our lives.
I could never get excited about most loungewear; so much of it just seemed so drab and lifeless. But add color…and you’ve got Play Clothes!
For this post, Nordstrom asked me to feature pieces from their Nordstrom Made brands.
- The top is from Zella, an activewear line. It’s generously cut, and I’m wearing the X-Small here. (I’ve previously purchased other Zella tees for working out, and they tend to run TTS.)
- The linen joggers are Caslon (Plus here), and I really like these. I’ll wear them as a jeans alternative on hot days. I’m wearing the Petite Small in Navy Peacoat. Several other colors available too.
- The slides are also Caslon, and wow, are they comfy!! Really well cushioned and “smooshy,” like slippers but for summer. The yellow color is on the cool side, but I’m keeping them anyway. (Disclosure: all items were purchased, not gifted.)
Nordstrom is always my first stop when I’m shopping for something specific. They carry a wide range of brands and sizes, shipping is free, and returns are easy. And you can often order online and pick up at your local store if you need something sooner.
