Zella Girls

Happy Tuesday, darling friends! I hope your week is off to a good start. No question this week is equal parts optimistic and apprehensive, so I hope you’re taking steps to guard your hearts and mental health.

Being with my family is like a salve on my heart, so I’m grateful Mr. College is with us for a few more days. (His university cancelled their Spring Break, so he’s got a longer-than-usual Winter Break.) I’m anxious about his return to an all-virtual world, so I’m savoring the time we have together for now.

Fortunately we’ve had stunning weather lately, so we’ve been able to get outside quite a bit! Y’all loved when Little Miss joined me last month for our Zella Girl picks, so I’m thrilled she agreed to join me again. Zella continues to nail it in the active and loungewear department, which is a good thing since we’re still living in leggings and sweats!

I set her loose on the Nordstrom site, and she chose the cutest combos!

on me: Crop Sports Bra | Cropped Leggings in ‘Green Berry’ | Sneakers

Is it just me, or does your mama-heart clench up every time you see photos of your kids?! She’s literally growing before my eyes!! Many of you have been following me from the early years…can you believe se was only 3 when I started Hi Sugarplum!?

But back to the cute styles…I love this combo she chose, the head-to-toe color is so chic, not to mention, this ‘Blue Marlin’ color is gorgeous on her! She has super-sensitive skin, so she really appreciates the soft fabrics and smooth seams of Zella, and reaches for it more than any other brand.

Fit Tip: She’s petite, so wears a mix of Zella and Zella Girl, but we do recommend sizing down in both.

She’s active in volleyball and track, and these pieces are perfect for all her activities. And since they’re so comfy, she lives in the leggings and hoodies for at-home school.

I work out almost exclusively in tanks, and this one is absolute perfection! I love the softness and light weight, and the length is great for keeping my torso covered. Plus, how adorable is the shirred back?

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS in all my Zella pieces, but I do size down in the jackets and sweatshirts.

This ‘Green Berry’ color is a new addition for me, and surprisingly neutral! The deep hue is flattering with no see-thru, and the color is fresh for all seasons. I love the high-waist for keeping things ‘tucked in’, and always prefer a cropped length since I’m 5’4″.

The sports bra is a longline shape for more coverage, and has built-in cups for great support.

I love this darling girl of mine with my whole heart, and am so grateful to be her mama! You can see our other Zella picks HERE and HERE. I love sharing her teen styles with you and hope they’re a helpful resource. Should we continue with more regular teen styles?
