Cool Weather Casual to #CozyOnDown + Quotes of Whimsy

Pretty sure I coined the #cozyondown hashie and have been stringing those words together in autumn and winter before blogging was a thing. (And that’s a mighty long time, doncha know.) J. Crew even has a collection dedicated to #cozydoesit RIGHT HERE!

Must Have Tartan

Ummmm, if this is not the perfect gift at a reasonable price ($20 as I type this), not sure what is!

Cozy Favs at the Factory

Do you know about J. Crew Factory? I had my doubts, but after multiple orders have been quite pleased with the value. These tissue turtlenecks are fitted yet comfy as they’re lightweight and perfect for layering.

I could live in these pajamas, and the color is perfection!

Keep Those Tootsies Cozy

This Heather Acorn Color Tho!

Cozy Coats With Delightful Patterns

Also, who names the clothing and accessories because I want the job! “Cocoon Coat?” Oui, mon cherie, you sound like an experience and not just outerwear. “

Chateau Parka in Buffalo Checks?” Pure marketing genius to appeal to a very specific Francophile demographic.

Fall Fashion Trends

Just a reminder, yer blogging fairy remains unconcerned with fashion trends. Cropped and flared is not likely to work on me without genetic modifications. And you probably won’t catch me in yoga pants without a tunic.

It’s why I love J. Crew…their timeless pieces hanging in my closet will still be there in two years.

Turtlenecks! Do you wear ’em? I have never taken a vacation from wearing them! And COOL BEANS, this season they’re cool!

Gorgeous Color Teddy Topcoat

While this layered look is very ’90s and maybe not one I would wear, it could be argued that hoodies make EVERYONE look younger. I’m always reminded of this when I see my dad in a hoodie – at least 10 years disappear.

Chic Prescription Lenses That Pair Well With J. Crew

You may recall my love letter to Warby Parker in which you’ll find plenty of reasons to crush on the brand. (Is it possible the same creative genius that names the product for J. Crew also works magic at Warby Parker…swoon?)

Warby Parker Wilkie frames in Whisky Tortoise are my favorite frames at the moment! #warbyparker #bestframes #wilie

P.S. Health Update

So happy to report my post-viral cough is gone, and I have gained some weight. I’ll let you know what I hear after my doctor appointments next week.

Feelin as groovy as this Scary Pockets’ cover of Sia’s famous song…vocalist Stan Taylor is perhaps from another planet (wow!). BONUS: Stan is wearing pajamas as if he knew today’s theme was #cozyondown.

We’ll also need a slow jam to play us out with Stan crooning again. Should your time be limited, do forward to 1:30 when Stan comes in.

    Loved it – I am officially borrowing forever your “cozyondown” term . Friends and family joke me about my use of “comfycozy” but now I have a much more hip term I can use!

    Excuse me while I go cozyondown in my new comfycozy hoodie.

    Love your light side – it lifted my spirits .

    Hey there honey bunny! Just caught up on your posts from this week. So glad prayers on your behalf have been fruitful in Gods loving mercy shown in the healing that continues in your family. Your post on the 27th prompted me to order the fire pit (same as yours!) that l was lethargic about for a very long while. Something I knew my husband and I would find pleasure in. You know the magic that outdoor fire and moonbeam sprinkles on anxieties! I’m grateful for a gentle prompt, to do what I can to find moments of pleasure that are doable! Peace be with you, Kathie

      Great to hear from you, friend. Yes – so grateful for all the answered prayer – so much grace carrying us still. I hope you like the firepit – I only wish I would have ordered it earlier since it is so dang cold now. Thank you kindly for all of the support and kindness.
