Loving Lately: Fleece

Fleece is always something that you can find in my closet and it seems lately that everyone is catching on to the fact that we love all the comfy cozy things! I’m overwhelmed with how many cute pullovers are out there, not to mention the blankets and slippers that are also so appealing. Being warm and comfortable as I run around town from meetings to school and wherever my day may take me, is always a plus. And when you feel stylish on top of that? Well, that’s just a bonus!

I’ve had this pullover for a number of years now and I love that they keep bringing it back because it’s just that good. I added this shorter fleece to my closet this year, going with the leopard print because, why not?! I was so happy to see that they brought this amazing jacket back in grey this year! It was my most worn jacket last year, without a doubt!

I’ve been keeping tabs on my favorites and gathered them for you to check out below. Many of the pieces come in various colors/prints which you can see once you click through. Not only are these great go-to’s for you but they’d make wonderful gift ideas as well!

Mock Neck Sweater

November is here and the weather has certainly followed suit. Colder temperatures are settling in but I can’t say I’m ready to set up my Christmas tree just yet. It feels as though Nov/Dec are completely dedicated to Christmas all of a sudden. Don’t get me wrong, I love the whole season, but I’m not ready to skip over Thanksgiving. I’ll take things a day at a time for now!

I will however, be jumping into all the warm cozy sweaters because well, I’m just not friendly when I’m cold! I need layers and this under $30 sweater is a great option. There are a number of color options, including a stunning red for those upcoming holidays ;) I’m also loving this double breasted coat. Such a chic layer to toss on without adding bulk and great to layer under or over. Olive felt like the perfect color to compliment the pink and grey, so these wide leg trousers were what I reached for to complete the look.

Insta Lately

I’m sure many of you are coming off that sugar high today and feeling extra thankful that it’s Friday! Not only that, but we also gain an extra hour of sleep this weekend! Our trick or treat was delayed until Saturday due to the rain/wind/storms that passed through our area and I don’t think I ever recall that happening before! The good thing is that we’ll have a sunny day to look forward to as the kids load up their baskets tomorrow.

Today I wanted to play catch up on all those iphone snapshots of everyday life. The outfits I pull together and a few other odds and ends that I’ve shared over on Instagram.

shirt / sweater (similar) / pants / mules (similar)

I can’t get enough of these pants lately. They are great year round, but fall is definitely their favorite season!

I keep a bin of faux florals and change out my front door wreath with every season. I love how this one turned out! I have a tutorial that shows just how easy it is to make your own here. All you need is a little inspiration.

sweater / denim

Sweater jackets have been another go-to of mine these past two months and I’m hoping that carries on a bit longer!

sweater / denim (similar) / booties

Another everyday outfit. My wide-leg crops (both these and my Everlane’s) are what I’ve been turning to most often. Makes it easy to pair with a cute, striped sweater.

Jacket (similar) / Shirt / Leggings

I have a number of animal print tops, but these leggings have been such a fun addition and a pair I reach for often.

sweater (similar) / overalls / bodysuit (similar)

This picture was actually taken last year, but I pulled this outfit together again shortly after seeing it. Most of my wardrobe remains classic enough that you wouldn’t know the difference one year from the next. A little tip, bodysuits are great under overalls so you don’t have to worry about your shirts riding up!

scarf / top / sweatpants

I ordered these sweatpants and a matching pair for my 10 yr old son. I can’t get over how cozy they are and my son has been raving about how they’re his favorite pair (and he’s a picky one when it comes to his sweatpants!). Again with this color, one I never realized how often I’d be reaching for!


Another shot from last year that decided to re-share because I came across this sweater (one of my most worn from last year) on sale and fully stocked!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and enjoy your extra hour of sleep!
