#CozyOnDown With Cool Sweater Weather Looks + Silly Quotes

Pretty sure I coined the #cozyondown hashie as I have strung those words together in autumn and winter even before blogging was born. (Oooooh, that’s a mighty long time, doncha know.) Another hashtag I love is from J. Crew: #cozydoesit!

Neutral Color to Layer for Years!

Here’s a piece that is so smart and sensible. Imagine a crisp white shirt beneath it or a navy jacket thrown over it.

I might wear a double layer of J. Crew’s tissue turtlenecks (yes, m’am, three sweaters in Northern Illinois sweater weather is reasonable for this fairy). I love the quality and fit of blazers from J. Crew, but I have never had one in corduroy:

Blazer, J. Crew

Remember pre-90’s when getting caught in a velour jogging suit was grounds for fashion jail and suggestive of grandparenthood? Later, it became perfectly acceptable to wear the suit in pink if your booty was tone, and rhinestones boldly bling-ed out a brand’s name. Today? First of all, dressing like your granny is chicer than chic. And leggings (even leggings that are essentially tights) and yoga wear are the norm. I wear these with a long sweater:

If you’re into these blushy-brown neutral colors, you may may also like this fuzzy wuzzy loungey option:

Sweater Weather Favs From the Factory

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

In fact, to me, they are more comfy than a t-shirt with the bonus of keeping my sun-damaged neck warm and covered. I know a neck revealing age is not worrisome. But I also know it takes time to feel at home with the changes brought upon by aging. So I’m learning to be okay with loose crepey skin.

I own this pair of trousers from Jenni Kayne, and their quality means they will look great forever. They pair with absolutely everything!

If you have yet to discover the goodness of Jenni Kayne…oh la la.

Topcoat & a Magic Time Eraser

For a very ’90s layered look, pair a top coat with a hoodie. (My longstanding opinion is hoodies subtract years from EVERYONE who wears them. Is it because gobble gobble necks get covered?

I’m always reminded of this magic trick when I see my dad in a hoodie – at least 10 years disappear.) Just a basic grey one will do:

And a pair of Aviators will never fall from favor:

    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! Iā€™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.
