This spring-weight Soma jogger set (this top and these joggers) has been on repeat. I'm kinda obsessed and I hate when it's in the laundry because I love wearing it so much. it looks pretty ordinary but when you're wearing it, it's a whole different experience.
Soma Jogger Set for Spring
I've raved before about how much I love Soma joggers. They redesigned them and now the tie can actually be cinched, but otherwise, they are still super soft, durable, and look great. The Soma joggers come in three colors: black, an oatmeal shade, and this heather navy. No surprise, I have all three and the navy is my most recent acquisition.
I got this matching pullover, to create a matching Soma jogger set, not expecting to like it as much as I do. It's called the Soft Boatneck pullover and it's not cropped, but hits shorter than most sweatshirts and doesn't have the band at the bottom. However, I find it long enough to do a half-tuck.
The sleeves have a wide elastic band at the cuffs, which is unusual but it's comfortable and adds an interesting style element. While the neck is a boatneck, my bra straps aren't on display.
Why I love this set is how incredibly soft it is. And that it remains just as soft even after multiple washings. This is the kind of set you want to nap in, you want to wear without a bra, you look forward to putting on.
Because the top isn't banded, and has a more refined neckline. Because the pieces aren't stiff or bulky. Because like most Soma pieces, they are shaped for a woman's body and not unisex or juniors… this feels more polished even if you have bedhead and are wearing your favorite comfy wireless bra.
I am wearing a Large in both pieces of this Soma jogger set, and both pieces have been washed and dried at least twice before these photos. The top is available in four colors, but is on sale so sizes are running out. The joggers come in three colors and unfortunately not all the same colors for both pieces.
But Soma has a bunch of other separates like a hooded wrap/long cardigan/soft jacket thingie with pockets, an off-the-shoulder top, tank, and much more in this fabric and complementary fabrics so you can mix and match a loungewear capsule.

I mentioned Friday I got a new pair of Birkenstocks for the spring in white; here they are. Birks need a bit of breaking in so I've been wearing them around the house like slippers, with and without socks. I've been wearing Birks inside all winter with thick socks and my feet thank me for the arch support and structure that is lacking in a lot of slippers. And they're easy to adjust weight by the thickness (or lack) of socks depending on the weather.
Can you believe Oscar was not supposed to be in this shoot? I swear this guy is such a ham. He sees the camera out and just HAS to be involved! You wouldn't believe how many studio photos (the ones where we put up the backdrop and use lights for posts like this) are deleted because of a blurry nose or tail gets into the shot!
