Oh guys, it’s really starting to dawn on me (as I leave work at 430-5PM) and it’s PITCH BLACK out already. Just last week when I would leave I’d at least see the sunset but now it’s just flat out dark. It’s definitely that time when the sun engages in a quid pro quo with the moon real early on 😦
You’d think that at 27 years old and having endured 26 winters (soon to be 27) and as a New Englander all my life that I’d be ready and prepared for this weather change- but NOPE, never have and never will. I dread the cold.
Needless to say, its indisputable that you need to dress with the seasons.
Today I’m sharing some of my favorite warm, comfy, and cozy attire.
Scarves. I have two blanket scarves that I bought last year that I loved yet really had no idea how to wear them because they’re so bulky but a fabulous blogger actually posted 3 ways to wear a blanket scarf [you can read Sarah’s post here]
So I attempted and improvised and this was the turn out.
To which I wore today; like so
And, leg warmers
I probably wear both of those EVERY DAY of the winter. I also love leg warmers because with skinny calves it helps fill in some of that extra space.
For some reason I hate pants; I’m for sure a shorts, skirts, dress kind of girl. Even in the winter on some of the coldest days you can see me wearing skirts and dresses with some tights and leg warmers to work.
So comfy to me is a pair of shorts and a baggy T.
I’m not one to splurge on Lululemon (unless I had a wallet stuffed with cash) but one year Britt and I went to their warehouse sale and I snagged a pair of these for can you believe it $25! Instantly sold. But really, any pair of leggings/yoga pants- def a must!
A good paid of Nikes or sneakers for that matter. Sneakers are definitely the most comfortable on but you can see me wearing them probably 5% of the time because unfortunately sneakers are not appropriate for the office.
Baggy T and sweatpants/PJ pants.
Nothing screams cozy than an off the shoulder baggy sweater.
And a nice warm sweatshirt that you can cozy up inside of.
Those are my favorite go-to warm, comfy cozy items!
