This past weekend I took some much needed “me time” and headed out on a mission – shopping for some new clothing for myself for winter. My closet is filled with a mix of office professional clothes, fun going out clothes, some workout clothes and some grungy old sweatshirts and pajamas. This mix is just not meeting my needs right now.
I’m home from day to night, teaching my kids and playing, joining video conferences for work, and running some limited errands in addition to school and activity pick-ups and drop-offs. I need a whole new kind of “day to evening” attire – not the little black dress you can dress up or down! Instead, the wardrobe I need looks stylish and put together but feels like cozy loungewear!
I think we all need an extra helping of cozy and comforting in our lives this winter! Pants that are comfy and let me move, tops that envelop me like a warm hug, yet look presentable and put together to others.
I had such a successful shopping trip at Lands’ End! They have mastered the art of blending comfort with stylish clothing. More important still, Lands’ End clothing is made so well. I’ve had some Lands’ End shirts for years, and they still look and feel like new! The fabric has held its shape and color so well, and the classic style is still on point! Plus, Lands’ End makes some pieces that are great for layering, letting you build different looks with a few treasured pieces!
Two of my favorite tops that I bought are below — the black and white plaid cardigan on the left and the gorgeous wrap shawl on the right. These pieces both looked and felt luxurious to me. The fabric on both was so soft and inviting, but the styles scream sophistication! Great with jeans or leggings, these items perfectly represent my required range of dressing up or down this winter!
Slightly more casual and irresistibly cuddly is this pink sherpa sweatshirt – it feels like wearing a blanket, and I love the color! This will look great with my new Lands' End jeggings. I’ve lost a considerable amount of weight and need some pants that fit. Jeggings fit the bill! Stylish like skinny jeans, but stretchy and ultra-comfortable for all my days’ varied happenings.
Finally, we just got our first big winter storm warning in our area so I picked out a gorgeous puffer coat with a fur hood. The fabric and fit are luxurious, and I loved the jewel tones – especially this purple! I’ll be spending even more time outside with my family this winter than usual, and I can’t wait to wear this new coat! Sporty and stylish and really warm, my new Lands' End coat is perfect for long walks with our Sheepadoodle, Murphy, and trips to the park to let my kids run off some of their boundless energy! Speaking of the dog, Lands' End makes some adorable sweaters for your favorite pooch, too.
