Tis the season to be cozy! With the colder winter weather here to stay, we all know that we’d prefer to be indoors cozy and warm. The reality is that most of us still have to brave the freezing cold to go to work and be social. On those days where you have the pleasure of staying home or you just want to be anti-social, you want to be comfortable. This is a word I use in nearly every single post on my blog – COMFORT! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite sleepwear and loungewear for you all to shop.
Recently New York was graced with a taste of beautiful spring weather. And now the temperatures have dropped. It was such a tease. A tease that made me very angry, especially because on the last day of the gorgeous weather I decided not to take any photos but do attempt to accomplish other things (which later did not work out in my favor). Hence why I look so angry in these photos. Its cold but I am ready for the spring weather. Whether those ground hogs were right or not, I want spring here.. I need the smell of summer, I need its noises in my ear..
After that brief emo high school moment of Brand New lyrics… let’s get back on track to this outfit. These joggers I got from Dynamite last fall, I have really loved wearing them since they are very diverse. From casual to dressy, it is all how you style it. I don’t mind rotating the same items in my blog posts because we all do this. Its realistic, and I love finding 100 different ways to wear the same item. Deciding on which outfit to go with first is a problem I’m still working on. Some days are better than others. Today I decided to wear a sweater with this look, I mean it is pretty cold outside and I am dying to wear my denim jacket on a more regular basis now. My choice of shoes is more spring rather than winter related. Like I previously stated, I am very much ready for the spring weather. Although you can see my ghostly white legs & feet aren’t as ready just yet.
These slip on sneakers are the perfect transition sneaker, from summer to fall and end of winter into the spring. You can get these styles in a variety of different colors. A majority of my shoes are black (sneakers, sandals, booties, heels).. so of course I went with my comfort zone with these. Although I would definitely invest in a gray pair or even taupe. I will link other options below in my outfit details. From head to toe this outfit is extremely comfortable. I am all about comfort…. but without looking like a complete bum 😉

On the weekends I am all about comfort, ok let’s extend that to 7 days a week. On a rare occasion I am willing to dress uncomfortably for a fashionable look. I wanted to take a different spin on a look that I would normally go to. These joggers are AMAZING. I can really wear them in many different ways.. dress them down or dress them up. I love the bang for my buck that I got when I purchased them. Normally I’d like to wear them with sneakers while running around on the weekends. And by running around I mean shopping. Because well obviously I have a problem. Forever chasing the sales… and whatever I stumble upon in between.
To make this look interesting I wore my new fishnet socks that I got. These are extremely strange to wear. They look unbelievably awesome in photos and other people, but when I look at them on my own feet… I’m wondering why my big toe is sticking out of the sock…. Ok, back to the outfit!! I figured why not incorporate this new trend with an “athleisure” styled look. Keeping things basic with the head to toe black is well.. I like wearing all black, its a monochromatic look that works.
This sweater is insanely comfortable too. Each time I wear it I feel like I am wearing a giant blanket. This long sweater can be worn multiple ways too.. I’ve worn it to work on cold days and I have worn it as a more casual look too. Ideally this is perfect for fall or early spring weather to wear as a jacket. Its heavy enough to keep you warm on these “cool days” but light enough where you aren’t sweating.

Athleisure is one of the latest trends being rocked by nearly every celebrity, model, and gal walking down the street. Without realizing it I tend to dress rather sporty, the irony is that I lack any coordination to play any type of sport. Hand eye coordination is not my forte. What I do excel at is finding pieces in my closet to participate in the latest trends. Now everyone has noticed Kim Kardashian’s new style since she stepped back into the spotlight. She has been wearing a lot of Kanye’s new line with Adidas and high ankle booties with a basic tee (short or long). This is a style I can get on board with. I can still be comfortable with my joggers and basic tee but feel a little dressier with the ankle booties.

I decided to pull pieces I already had in my closet and change things up a bit… Any excuse to wear these joggers and I’ll take it. Pairing it with my bomber jacket gave it a more sporty look rather than my typical go to leather jacket. To add a little personality to my jacket, I pinned some funny pins my Mom got me for Christmas. She knows her daughter well… Pizza & beer!
Because it is freezing out, I grabbed my faux fur scarf to translate Kim’s California look to New York style. It is freezing here you know… Lastly, I wore my new suede high ankle booties from Steve Madden. Although Kim has been spotted wearing more pointed toe booties that are laced up, I wanted to work with what I already had instead of going shopping for a particular outfit.
Kim wore these amazing sunglasses to the airport in the look I was inspired by. I do not have a pair that looks like these (yet) but I did want to bring out the red in my pins on my jacket, so I went with my favorite Shop Sonix pair. Who doesn’t like a pop of color to your outfit?
