There's something about navy that instantly draws me in. It's such a beautiful color going from season to season that's truly timeless. This Wrap cardi from Evy's Tree is one of those timeless pieces that can elevate a casual look from bland to well put together. The Crochet detailing runs the entire span of the collar + hood and seriously is just so stunning up close. I can't wait to continue wearing this cozy piece in the colder and (as evidenced here) very windy winter days ahead.
There are a number of graphic tees and sweatshirts out there, but only a select few truly speak to the heart 🙃 This one here from The Trendy Sparrow, is at the top of my list! For starters, it's about the coziest thing ever since it's lined with fleece inside. Yes, please! It also comes in the prettiest royal blue and is topped off with a fun, "Cocktails, anyone?" graphic, sure to get the day started off on the right foot. It's basically always a good idea!
I decided to let the sweatshirt do the talking by pairing it with neautral pieces like this tailored blazer and black faux leather leggings + boots. Since it happened to be raining on this day (it's seriously been non-stop here in SoCal), I had to pull out a chunky beanie for added warmth. All the layers is the way I'm surviving these storms lately. Yeah, perhaps not total storms. I am exaggerating a bit (a lot), but this is supposed to be California. The flood warnings need to stop ✋🏻 In the meantime, I'm living in this cozy sweatshirt!
Thanks for reading, everyone!
I have to admit that I haven't been the biggest fan of the athleisure look unless one's actually working out. Don't get me wrong, I start my day in leggings + sneakers for a morning run, but wont wear them for activities throughout the day. That is, of course, how I felt until I saw this Allie jogger set from Evy's Tree. When I saw the color block design along with the white ribbon drawstring, I was hooked! I love how feminine it is while still looking sporty. The dressier feel of these pieces together is definitely what sold me on them. I was able to wear them ALL DAY and still feel super comfortable! The material is seriously buttery soft and so so cozy! Best part, is that Evy's Tree is offering 40% off these joggers through the end of this weekend with code: MLK40! You can't beat that deal!
Happy Shopping, everyone!
There's something about a good toggle coat that screams winter cozy to me. It's a classic design that can carry you through the colder weather months year after year. Because it's such a timeless piece, investing in the right one is key. I especially love this one from Santa Fe Apparel because the thick tweed is so warm and perfect for added layers while still maintaining a feminine silhouette. Plus, the removable faux fur collar adds a little bit of glam without it being too much. Yes and yes! A coat that's easy to throw on over basically everything is such an essential. I paired it over a peplum top and skinny jeans, but could be worn a number of different ways. I'm thinking of it paired over a simple tee dress and over-the-knee boots for another casual look sure to make a statement this winter!
There's something about being out in the snow that's so refreshing. The clean air, the crisp white everywhere you look and cozy feel of being out exploring tends to set a reset button for me. I'm able to let go of all stresses and just take in the surroundings even if only for a couple days. This, of course, includes finding the right winter pieces sure to keep you warm despite the low temps. Shearling accents are everywhere right now and I can't get enough! I especially loved the color combo of the one in this post, but also love this one here and here. Sorel boots are also a snow favorite essential with so many adorable color options available! With the right layers, snowy getaways can be the coziest part of winter. I can't wait to add a couple more trips in this new year!
