STAYING WARM & COZY ON CHILLY WINTER DAYS

STAYING WARM & COZY ON CHILLY WINTER DAYS

Happy Friday! We made it through the first full week in January. #Hallelujah! Even though my brain is thinking Spring (I am going on a girls’ trip to the Bahamas in a couple of weeks), this has been the coldest week yet and we are even supposed to get snow. I hate wearing bulky clothes and coats when I am running errands and lugging groceries. I like to be comfy and able to move around. Also, I am always cold, so my first priority is always to be warm and comfortable. (My husband would call me an expert in this department.) However, style wise, that can present a bit of a challenge, so today I am sharing a cute & cozy outfit idea and some tips on staying warm during these chilly temps.

STAYING WARM & COZY ON CHILLY WINTER DAYS

Wear a hat – Body heat escapes from your head first. A hat is vital for staying warm & cozy, but the itch factor is always huge for me. This one is so warm, but lightweight and feels like nothing at all.  I can wear it for hours. Also, it covers my day-5-on-dry-shampoo hair. It is one of my favorite mom hacks when I don’t have time to wash my it.

STAYING WARM & COZY ON CHILLY WINTER DAYS | I pulled together some of my favorite closet staples to create and cute and cozy mom uniform for running around on chilly days. I layered a long sleeve striped tee, denim shirt, cozy cashmere sweater and puffer vest and paired them with my new favorite leggings and Ugg boots for a cute on-the-go outfit. The haot covers my dirty hair and keeps my head warm without feeliging itchy. I am ready to tackle that Costco run. #momuniform #cuteandcozy #outfitidea #over40style #over40

Layer Up – This is the key to being warm, yet still looking presentable.  Rather than throwing on a big bulky sweater, add layers.  I think I am wearing 5 layers here. I have on a camisole, a long sleeved tee, a denim shirt, a cashmere sweater and my vest. Whew!  At night, it is like peeling an onion when I take everything off to put on my jammies 🤣.

The sweater is my favorite – so soft and lightweight and it doesn’t pill at all.  It comes in tons of colors and some really pretty ones for Spring as well.

Wear form fitting bottoms. – baggy sweats do nothing to flatter your shape. I also find that loose pants let the air in. Choose slim joggers or thick leggings to stay warm. I am currently obsessed with these leggings!

Make sure your feet are warm.  Nothing makes you more miserable that cold feet.  I have had these Uggs for years and they are still my favorite cozy winter shoe.  I put on thin wool socks and slide these on – pure heaven.

Stay warm on the inside.  I always love toting a hot tea or coffee in the car with me on days like these.  It warms up my hands and belly all at once.

I seriously pulled this outfit together from my closet with staples that I alreaady owned.  It just goes to show, if you invest in good staple items, they last for years and you can create a multitude of outfits.

The one new thing I purchased recently,  are these leggings and I am telling you, you NEED them in your life.  They are the most soft and comfy leggings I have ever owned.  I am completely obsessed and have not taken them off since the day I got them.  Also, they are a total bargain and rival my $100 Beyond Yoga leggings.   You must get a pair – I promise you will not regret it. They are great for travel, too.  I will be getting them in a few more colors.  At $22.00 a pair, I can’t afford not to, am I right?!

I have worn the denim shirt twice already this week.  It goes with everything and just adds a bit more texture to any outfit. It works year round, as does this striped t-shirt.  The vest is another item that is on repeat in my closet. Now I can tackle all of my “mom” duties like errands, and groceries without looking like a hot mess.

If you get snowed in, make this chilly. It is super easy and delicious and goes great with my favorite 4- ingredient, homemade bread.  My kids gobble it up. 

Have a great weekend and stay warm & cozy, my East coast friends. If you are living in a warmer climate, send all the warm vibes our way, please and thank you.

XO,
