Well, it’s still winter. But, the end is in sight as we approach the month of March! Hooray! I am linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci to share my Five Friday Favorites again this week! This week, I am sharing my personal favorite “cozy” things. While March and spring are near, maybe these will help in the meantime.
Leggings (when worn appropriately *ahem*), are my favorite cozy thing, not only in winter but really year-round. I have certain ones I love for sleeping and lounging and others that I love for wearing with long shirts and sweatshirts. My favorites are actually all from the GAP.
These are GAP’s Pure Body Essential Leggings, and I can’t rave about them enough. They are comfortable, thick enough (not see-through), and hold their shape throughout the day. These are great for both lounging and wearing out. I have three pairs and they have lasted me through multiple seasons, and still look great after many washings. I have a few different brands of leggings and these are my favorite. (P.S. If you are pregnant, the maternity style of these leggings will be your best friend.)
2) Pure Body Tanks
I know what you’re thinking. Why am I highlighting a tank top in the middle of winter? Well, GAP not only has great leggings, but along in their Pure Body line they also have these tanks that I looooove. I wear them under everything and they are great for layering. I have a long torso and these are long enough for me so that’s another reason I love them. They are all super reasonably priced as is, and to make it even better they are on sale right now! They have solids year-round but seasonally they come out with different colors or prints. They have some new ones out for spring now that are really cute!
I wear these tank tops all year long, but I actually find myself using them more in the winter as an additional layering piece. They look great underneath cardigans and sweaters! My two warnings about shopping for these tanks: 1) Size up if you don’t want a tighter look! I normally wear a size small at GAP, but I like this, as well as most Pure Body tops, in a size medium. 2) The white tank is kind of see-through. I still wear mine a lot layered, but on its own, it is kind of see-through.
3) OPI Nail Polish
Painting my nails in the winter always makes me feel like maybe the snow and cold isn’t so bad…I’m not sure why, but take it or leave it, it boosts my mood! I am a big fan of OPI nail lacquer, and have several favorites, but “You Don’t Know Jacques”, is one of my wintery faves. Amazon actually offers a really good price on certain OPI colors, but otherwise I usually buy my OPI at Ulta when they are on sale and with a coupon!
4) Gilmore Girls
I jumped on the Gilmore Girls bandwagon long after the show was over, but I am watching the whole show from start to finish over again this winter. I think part of what I love about the show is the main relationship between Lorelai and Rory. I love my mom and view her as a friend, so I feel like I can relate to pieces of their relationship! Of course the romantic drama and comedic scenes keep me hooked too. All I know is that at the end of the day, I wish I lived in Stars Hollow! You too?
5) The “Make it Happen” Book
I have only just started this book, and I already LOVE it. Lara Casey is a great author and she offers some great insight in this book! If you are looking for something to read, I really recommend this book! “Surrender your fear, take the leap, live on purpose!” Winter is the perfect time to catch up on reading, so check this one out.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my favorites this week!
