Yesterday the weather was in the 40s and it had me craving spring. It’s funny how 40 degrees can feel SO warm when you’ve been living in 20 degree weather for the past few months! I am so ready for sunshine and warm weather!
Shopping has been tricky lately as I’m drawn to all of the pretty spring pieces popping up in the new arrivals section, but know I won’t be able to wear them (at least without 10 extra layers) for a few more months. I’ve been trying to put pieces in my cart that I know I can wear now and transition into warmer weather. The moment I saw this pretty off the shoulder sweater I knew I could take it into spring with me! The color is the perfect neutral shade! Cream goes with everything and I love that I can wear it with darker colors now and pastels in the spring! I’ve styled it with faux leather leggings and denim (see below) and plan on pairing it with a skirt soon! I love a good versatile piece! Especially when it’s on sale…snag this cutie for under $40!
This is my first post of 2018! I’ve taken a little time off this winter break, and have enjoyed a little R&R with my hubby and pup! My winter break has officially come to an end though and school is back in session January 3rd. I am definitely going to miss lazy mornings and my comfy clothes, but it will be nice to get back to a routine! I am excited for the new year and all of the new content I am planning to bring to the blog! Look for a post on the most popular items on Twenties Girl Style in 2017 later this week!
It has been SO cold here. I’ve been living in my coziest pieces and bundling up whenever I leave the house. I am looking for all of the ways to stay warm but still look cute! One of my favorite combos? A chunky, oversized sweater, a skirt and over the knee boots. Over the knee boots are one of my favorite ways to stay warm and toasty without losing the style factor. These boots are currently on sale and I have been wearing them non-stop! They come in a few different colors, but this color is so easy to style! It’s not too early to start thinking Valentine’s day, and this outfit is already on my list of contenders for a Valentine’s day date with E!
My winter break officially starts Friday and I could not be more ready! All I want to do is spend the day in my coziest pjs, wrapped up in a snuggly blanket with a cup of hot cocoa and binge watch Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel. Anybody else feel me? There really is nothing better than being nice and toasty inside when it’s so cold outside! With the holidays looming, the never ending list of errands makes this cozy dream impossible. Leaving my house is inevitable, and while dealing with the frigid temperatures is a given, dressing in comfy cozy pieces makes it more bearable!
When shopping for cozy pieces for around the house AND for going out, I always check the Topshop section at Nordstrom. Not only do they carry the cutest knits and outerwear, but they also have a great selection of cute pj sets and loungewear.
My favorite thing about winter break is spending lazy mornings around the house, before running errands in the afternoon. I love waking up, staying in my pjs and enjoying a cup of coffee while catching up on emails or wrapping presents. Enjoying a lazy morning is not something I get to do during the work week, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoy it! After a lazy morning, I feel refreshed and relaxed and ready to take on the rest of the day! This pj set is one of my current favorites! I love that I can wear it year round and I can’t get enough of the print! Paired with this cozy robe, I am all set for a lazy morning! Both of these pieces would make great Christmas gifts!
When heading out to run errands and get lunch with E (another one of my FAVORITE winter break activities…teachers don’t get to go out to lunch during the work week!), I opt for cozy knits that will keep me warm. While I love layering up, I also love a cute sweater dress. It’s one of my favorite ways to feel comfy and cozy all while feeling cute and put together! This sweater dress is SO warm! It’s made of a thicker knit, so it’s perfect for the winter! Styling tip…pair your sweater dresses with over the knee boots in the winter. It’s a great way to stay warm!
There is no other way to beat the 30 degree temperature than layers, layers, layers! Even though winter isn’t officially here (it doesn’t arrive until December 21st), the chilly winter weather has arrived in full force. I’m living the layered life, piling on all the layers I can get my hands on! Winter layers (chunky knits and soft scarves) can get expensive! Today I’m sharing a few bargain buys that are a must for the chilly months ahead!
This cardigan has been a life saver! This chunky knit cardi adds a layer of cozy goodness to my basic tee and denim. It’s SO warm! I’m all for cardigans that are so thick they can double as a coat. It’s the perfect way to stay warm but still look cute when it’s FREEZING outside! This cutie just happens to be on flash sale today for under $50! It comes in 4 colors and would also make the perfect gift!
This scarf has been one of my go to’s lately! It’s ridiculously soft and I love the size. The color also goes with everything! The best part? It’s under $20! This cozy option is just a fraction of the cost of a much pricier option, but the quality isn’t lost! Buy one for yourself and one for your BFF. This makes a great gift item too!
Last but not least, my FAVORITE over the knee boots. I talk about these so often, but the price is just too good for the quality! Read all about why I love them here! Not only are OTK boots a super cute way to spice up your outfit, but they also add an unexpected layer of warmth! I love wearing mine in the winter!
