Cozy, affordable staples you’ll wear 24/7!

Cozy affordable staples you’ll wear 24/7!

The weather turned this week in Portland, and for the first time since February, it was very very cold! Luckily it has also been sunny, which is a nice little transition before the rain settles in for the next 6 months. Thank goodness for the cozy new staples like fleece, shirt jackets and matching sets that are everywhere this season! There are many stylish options, and since many of us are going to be hanging out at home for the next few months, it makes sense to spruce up our stay-at-home wardrobe. The prices are super reasonable, so grab a few of these items while you can!

Before we get started … a personal note to all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along, especially during this challenging time. My goal is to find new, exciting things you’ll fall in love with, and to help you navigate your online shopping journey.

Cozy Fleece

I bought this cozy fleece from Abercrombie & Fitch a while back, and admittedly, I haven’t ventured in there since my daughter was in 6th grade!! (she’s now 23 😉 )  It was one of the hottest items last Christmas, and it’s shaping up to be popular again this year. I highly recommend it — and it makes the perfect gift for just about anyone. The color combos are really good, and there’s a full zip version and a half-zip too. You can check them all out here. Don’t wait, because trust me, these will sell out!

Pro-tip: If it does sell out, check often because I’ve noticed inventory changes and I’m pretty sure these will come back in stock. So, be persistent!

Shirt jackets

“Shackets” (shirt jackets) are THE must-have piece of the season! Super stylish and comfy, this one piece is the perfect update to the new work-from-home wardrobe. There are many options, including the Madewell style above. I think you’ll like this Abercrombie one, and this plaid style is also really cute. Find one or two and I’m certain you’ll wear them non-stop!

Best selections are at Nordstrom, Madewell, Shopbop and Anthropologie.










Comfy Matching Sets

Matching sets are a thing right now. This easy outfit is an effortless way to look put together while hanging out at home. The ones that really get it right are this one, this luxe looking one by Monrow and this one by Zella. I’ve been living in these, and you will too!

Don’t forget slippers!

The two I’ve been wearing on repeat are these Steve Madden slides – $39.95 – and the fuzzy and super cozy ones by Emu Australia. Both are great, I highly recommend!
