Like a month ago I wrote this post about how Farmers had given me this challenge to incorporate clothing product from their department store, into my wardrobe. I put together a bunch of outfits using their stuff and mine – outfits I would genuinely wear outdoors, out of the house, IRL. This is the second half of that post, where I put together outfits I would genuinely wear inside the house, lounging around on an Autumn afternoon type thing. If you read the last post, you may remember me talking about how I was obsessed with Ambra‘s line of what I think are training bras. Whatever they are, they are dope and I swear to you now I wear some kind of Ambra undergarment at least twice a week. The comfort level is V HIGH. Perfect for lazing around in, inside (or outside if you’re brave) these cooler months. Also, relatively inexpensive, great for every day wear.
Anyway, I have incorporated some of the crop tops below. For continuity, James and I decided to use the lovely Saskia from 62 Models again, but this time to mix it up, I took a few shots on Instax to keep life interesting. And for those creeps out there who are wondering – yes, we shot it in my bedroom. That is what my bedroom looks like:
Ambra Body Soft Shaper Bra in Grey Marle, Reg $21.99; Levi’s Straight Leg 607 Jean in Stonewash, Reg $109.99.
You can’t really get past jeans and a tee. This is jeans and a bra/croptop/whatever you want to call it, I know, but you get what I’m saying. I mean, I would fully sleep in this bra (it’s seamless and fully fashioned so you could sleep it in comfortably) and the matching high waisted undies and then wake up Sunday morning, chuck on the jeans and read the paper, ya feel me?
When I shop I always look for the same things – loose tees, crew neck sweaters, flat shoes, black a-line skirts, etc. One of the things I am always keeping an eye out for is the soft, semi-sheer white shirt/blouse. It’s a classic, it can look professional or undone, depending on how you button it or how sheer it is or how oversized it is and whether you roll up the sleeves. You can kind of see in the picture a few down, that this one has a bit of a texture to it which is cool. I mean, maybe it’s a little ‘I woke up and put on my lover’s shirt’ in these shots, but imagine it, sleeves pushed up with and paired with some narrow jeans and flats and a low ponytail – very together, very nice.
Baggy knit sweaters are the key to Winter. This one is kind of lightweight so it’s not exactly for freezing temperatures, but it’s a good coverup and the texture to the knit is pretty dope.
More Ambra, lol. This one is actually my favourite Ambra bra to wear, it’s got hook and eye closures on the back and it’s longline which means it’s maybe okay to wear as a top if you want? My mom saw it and was like, ‘can’t you wear a nicer, fancier bra than that?” and I was all, ‘mate, that’s not the POINT’, because it isn’t – this is comfortwear. It’s sporty, it’s clean, it’s got ballerina vibes which is why I paired it with these flowy, light, wide leg pants and the bun.
Here’s my final look. It’s knitwear on knitwear – a chunky knit cardigan or sweater is my idea of staying cozy and for some reason because of the weight of the knit, I feel like this cardigan could almost double as a way more comfortable to wear coat. Like, you could wear a cardigan under it, double layers and everything.

PPS: If you are unlike me and have Pinterest, Farmers is doing this competition where you pin new season product from their store to your page, and they pick 5 winners who win their pinned product (up to the value of $500). If you’re down with it, I suggest you pin those Ambra bras like crazy. You can find out how to enter, here.
