We have had a couple of days of legitimately chilly (or at the very least cooler) weather here in New York. While I’ve enjoyed breaking out some of my favorite fall clothing a bit early, I must admit that I’m a little glum about the changing of seasons. If we can’t have an endless summer, I would settle for an endless fall. (Fall in the city is my favorite, despite the fact that it’s the preface to winter.)
With the cooler weather underway, it makes me want to start my cozy-hibernation. I’ve been joking that from now until June, you will find me wrapped head-to-toe in cashmere just trying to keep warm! This Florida girl has very thin blood and I get chilled to the bone at the slightest of breezes.
I thought I’d share my top four cozy things:
LEGGINGS | Whether you believe in leggings as pants or not, I think every girl should have a go-to pair. They’re perfect for lounging with an oversized sweatshirt, layered under a tunic with riding boots, or paired under a dress to “fall” it up. My favorite pair is from LOFT and they’re relatively well-priced. (I have a few pairs because I wear them that often!) J. Crew has a fan-favorite pair and Gap’s are great as well.
SLIPPERS | I am all about the slippers. The floors in my apartment get so so so cold during the winter. If I’m inside, my slippers are on. I am the biggest fan of these UGG slippers because they’re comfortable like slippers, but supportive like a shoe with a real sole. If I have to throw something out, I can wear them outside no problem. I’m tempted to get a pair of these this winter… and a bunch of my friends have these and they look oh-so-dreamy.
CASHMERE | Over the years, I’ve been investing in a handful of cashmere pieces every season. In my opinion, there’s nothing more luxurious than wrapping yourself in an insanely soft, cashmere sweater. It’s like a constant hug. One of my favorite sweaters is the J. Crew boyfriend v-neck sweater. It’s a little unexpected because it’s slouchy, but chic. Lilly Pulitzer has a killer cashmere wrap that I love to get cozy in. (For cashmere on a budget, try Halogen’s sweater!)
CAMP SOCKS | I swear by camp socks. They are great for wearing with leggings in the house or with boots– especially Bean Boots! I also wear them with my rain boots when I need a little extra warmth and comfort. Getting a pair in every color wouldn’t be the worst idea.
How do you stay comfy and cozy when the weather cools off?
