Happy Friday friends! It’s been a whirlwind of events here since I last posted! We celebrated Thanksgiving (twice), a 10th birthday (with a first sleepover), bought a new car, and have been working solidly for the past 2 weeks (Hello full time craziness – I’m reminded why I do not like you!) And, to top it all off, the hubs, too, has been working some crazy, crazy hours & traveling, soooo December has had quite the start for us!
That all said, I was thinking about a conversation I had with a friend about COMFY (cute) clothes. They are basically ALL we want to wear during these colder months here in the Midwest. I see women come into the boutique where I work on Thursdays (State of Grace) & they are immediately drawn to anything soft, longer (to cover the booty if worn with leggings), with a roomier fit. In fact, when I think back to my last couple of purchases, they have fallen in those categories as well! I mean, who wants to wear tight, thin, and uncomfortable fabrics when it’s 32 degrees outside? So ladies….let’s be realistic – comfort is what we want…CUTE comfort, that is!
Here’s a round-up of some of my fave comfy styles! These are all MUST HAVES! Trust me!
American Eagle Aerie City Sweatshirt: Hello American Eagle! Who knew they made such CUTE loungewear? I quickly purchased this slouchy sweatshirt (in camo, of course) after seeing it in a post on Instagram (darn that Liketoknowit app)! I loooooove this style (and so many others)! You NEED to check out their Aerie line. Like head over NOW.
Gap Lace Up Tunnel Neck Hoodie: Sold out in MANY sizes (probably thanks to a combo of Gap’s 50% sale(s) and the fact that this sweatshirt is just SO awesome), but if you can find this – BUY IT! I recommend sticking to your normal size because I tried to size up thinking I wanted it a little more roomy, but I was swimming in the medium! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve already worn this hoodie – with both jeans and leggings. In fact, I wore it on Thanksgiving! Fancy! (Pardon the quality of this pic – click the link to go directly to the Gap’s page.
Pleione Embroidered Bishop Sleeve Sweatshirt: I’m OBSESSED with this sweatshirt! It was such a great find at Nordstrom Rack! In fact, I think it looks so much cuter in person than it does here in the pic! The sleeves are the best part & I get so many compliments when I wear it!
Relaxed Full Zip Fleece Hoodie: Not sure why, but I’m obsessed with these basic zip up hoodies from Old Navy!?!? I wear mine with my PJ’s, over workout clothes & will throw one on when I get home from a long day of subbing (and have to still clean the house). So comfy, easy & inexpensive! Pick up a few colors!
Are you seeing a trend with my color (or lack there of) selection? I am a sucker for grey. I definitely gravitate towards anything and everything grey when I’m out shopping & that “section” in my closet definitely stands out (as it’s the biggest)!!!! Oh well!
Have any fave “comfy” clothes secrets to share with me? I’d love to hear! Send your suggestions my way! It seems like that is the ONLY way I’m dressing these days! Happy Friday!!!

P.S. Here are a few other “comfy” items I’m keeping my eye on:
American Eagle Aerie:
P.P.S My fave leggings? Oh easy….. my Zella Live In Leggings. I literally LIVE in them. Get some immediately & then wear them everywhere like I do! Don’t ask how many pairs (of black) I have! It’s ridiculous! They are seriously THE BEST.
