How was everyone’s weekend? I came back from Miami on Saturday night after a whirlwind two days. It was one of those trips that was so much fun, but I came back even more exhausted. Does anyone else get so wiped out from flying? Whether I’m flying one hour or cross country, it always sucks all the energy out of me.

Needless to say, yesterday, I wore the above outfit. I was craving comfort and didn’t want to be bothered with much makeup or  thinking about what to wear. To be honest, normally, I wouldn’t post this outfit on the blog. I feel like it’s not “blog worthy,” but I’ve gotten quite a few requests for more casual outfits, so here you go.

These Golden Goose sneakers, which I always get a ton of questions on, are definitely a splurge, but they’re pretty much 1 out of 2 sneakers that I always wear. While they did take a few wears to break in, now they’re incredibly comfy! I’m not the biggest sneaker person, but I do like having a pair I love for the days I want 100% pure comfort.

Do you all want to see more casual outfits or nah?

    This all black outfit is so pretty!

  • Samantha

    This outfit could not be any better. I love it!

    I like your relaxed winter style!

    You always look great! But uber-casual isn’t my fave. I gain far more inspiration from your take on amped-up basics, etc. 🙂

    • Helena

      Hi Francine,

      Totally understand that! Thank you for your input – always appreciated!

  • Anika May

    This is so stylish, I absolutely love this look!

    I don’t know if it’s an algorithm, but your ig profile has completely disappeared from my ig account, has this happened to any of your followers before? I am going through Helena withdrawal!

    • Gabrielle

      Me toooo!!! I am so sad – I literally always watched your stories and your IG was always first, and now I have to go find you!! I don’t know what happened. Happy someone else said the same!

      • Helena

        ugh! this makes me so sad! 🙁

        I try not to let the algorithm get to me, but comments like this make me realize it really is the case. I’ve heard that in order for my stuff to show up, particularly Instagram photos, you have to “like” and engage with my content so Instagram shares it. It’s bizarre and annoying, but I guess that’s the thing to do!

        Thank you for for sharing! xo

  • Young

    I’m glad you posted this outfit on the blog, because while I do appreciate the glamorous and pretty outfits, I can totally relate to this.

  • Rach

    I get wiped out too. It’s so funny because in a plane you’re juste sitting and somehow it is exhausting! Your puffer coat is awesome!

  • Janine

    Yes, I’d love to see some more casual outfits! I really adore this black puffer jacket and I am obsessed with Golden Goose sneakers at the moment!

    Just perfect! x

  • lINDA

    Helena, you always look great! even though I get a lot of inspo from your dressy looks, definitely I would like to see more on the casual side which,in your case, has that je ne sais quoi that always, A L W A Y S, look chic! Happy Holidays from Italy xx

    • Helena

      Thank you so much, Linda! Happy Holidays to you!

  • Fortune Dushey

    Love that puffer jacket!

  • ANIA

    Oh sunglasses deets? Please please share

    • Helena

      Hi Ania,
      Sorry about that! They’re Le Specs and I just updated with the link.

  • Lito

    Thanks for sharing this outfit! I love dressing up as well, but with an increasingly active toddler I find myself reaching out for the Goose sneakers more often than I would like. Oh well at least they’re stylish 😜

    How Do you like those Commando leggings? I’ve been eyeing them for a while. How would they look with an oversized knit you think?

    • Helena

      I love them and especially love them with just that – an oversized knit! They’re not 100% comfortable at first, but stretch and get more comfy after 1-2 wears.

  • Vivian Fellman

    Yes yes yes!! I love casual looks too. That makes you real. Kind of sick of seeing some bloggers only do glamorous and lavished looks. I like the fact that we still keep it real because we are the real human beings that’ll deal with the daily sh$t every day. Love you, girl! ❤️

    • Helena

      So glad! xoxo

  • andrea

    Love all your posts, but definitely into casual looks! Keep ’em coming!

  • sam

    Definitely YAY.

    I have the freestyle short down style from SAM and while it’s definitely a casual look, I still consider it an “amped up basic” with the shiny exterior and boxier cut. Elevates any casual outfit.

  • Claire

    Love this outfit! 😍👟 just bought my first pair of GGB sneakers on black Friday and they are worth it! more casual outfits please!!

    • Helena

      So glad you love them! and hearing all of you – more casual outfits!

  • Coretta

  • vanessa

    this looks is so cool!

  • Kristina

    Chic as always! You are the reason I bought my first Golden Goose ( and not only) this past summer and I think a casual outfit on the blog is very refreshing. :)) Mom of 2,5 year old so totally relatable. Kristina

    • Helena

      Hi Kristina,
      I’m so glad you love them!

  • MBI

    More casual outfits!

  • Maria rivera

    Hi Helena.What are your thoughts on Dad sneakers? I wanted to buy a pair of their cute butt I’m also terrified of them LOL. What do you think?

    • Helena

      Hi Maria,

      Ehhh .. not my favorite! Some others can pull them off, but overall, I cannot get on board. Sorry!

  • Kara

    Omg yes! This is so cute and would love to see more posts like it. Mom of a Baby here and I’d love some insiration for true every day looks that are practical, yet stylish and put together. To me, this is the best post in a long time because it’s totally real and helpful. Not a lot of bloggers are doing this.

    • Helena

      Hi Kara,

      Thank you so much for your feedback! Helps so much to know that you all want to see more looks like this!
