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!
Christmas is over, and if you are like me, you’ve got a bunch of Christmas gift cards burning a hole in your pocket. With the official arrival of winter just last week, it’s absolutely freezing outside, and I only want to wear the coziest pieces when I leave the house. Therefore, when spending my Christmas gift cards, I’m looking for warm winter essentials that I know I will wear all season long!
At the top of my list? UGG boots! I will FOREVER be an UGG girl! Living in a colder climate during the winter, leaving the house in a pair of UGG boots makes the frigid temperatures more bearable. Nordstrom has a wide variety of UGG boots, which makes finding something you love that is stylish and cozy easy peasy. I usually go with the classic style, but opted for the Bailey button this year because I love that you can wear the cuff up or down! Looking for something with a little more structure, but just as cozy? Give the Quincy boot or the Aysel a try! Browse a few more of my favorites below!
Another cozy winter essential? A fleece pullover! This oversized option has been on repeat since I got it earlier this month. In fact, I love it so much, I just used some of my Christmas gift cards to pick it up in pink! Other great fleece options include this zip up hoodie and this fleece vest, both of which are currently on sale!
This time of year it seems I top off every outfit with a beanie. There is no better way to ensure I’m going to stay warm when I head out the door! This double pom beanie is a fun option that adds a unique twist! Go classic with this oversized pom option or add a sweet touch with this bow beanie. Or state just how cold you are with a graphic beanie like this one (currently in my cart – it’s only $15) or this fun option!

Today’s post is in collaboration with Nordstrom, but all opinions are my own! Thank you for supporting the brands that Twenties Girl Style!
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!
The holiday season is here and with it comes all of the holiday festivities! Unfortunately, the holiday season also means COLD. It’s been freezing outside lately, making getting dressed a little more difficult. I want to look cute and festive, without sacrificing warmth this holiday season! When shopping, I’ve been looking for winter basics with a twist. Pieces that are easy to layer, cozy and warm, but also have a unique touch that makes them stand out! One of my go to’s for basics with a twist is the Topshop brand at Nordstrom! They carry my favorite closet basics, but always put a unique spin on them! I also love their on trend pieces that are easy to wear but still make a statement! One of the reasons I love shopping at Nordstrom, is because they carry the brand I love, like Topshop! It’s always easy to find what I’m looking for!
This Topshop cardigan sweater is a gorgeous shade of green, making it perfect for the holidays! It’s an easy piece to dress up or down, but what really makes it unique is the fun balloon sleeves. This unique spin on a classic style makes for a stand out piece that makes a statement without being too over the top! Pair this over a black mini dress with heeled booties for a party or style it over jeans and a tee for a more laid back affair.
My tee, jeans and booties are other winter basics I’ve added to my wardrobe this season, that each have their own twist on a classic style! I’ve been living in this under $30 twist front tee! It’s the perfect basic for layering, but the twist at the front adds a pretty little detail that I love! This pair of denim is AMAZING. They fit like a glove, are slightly cropped (perfect if you are under 5’4) and are high waisted…a twist on classic denim that I hope is here to stay! It also doesn’t hurt that they are under $100! Last but not least, my new mule booties. Closed at the front and open at the back, this is a shoe I know I will be wearing all year long!
