I blinked, and Thanksgiving was over. How insane is that?! As sad as I am that the pumpkin days are behind us, I am more than ready to jump full force into my absolute favorite time of year – CHRISTMAS PREP. Even though winter doesn’t technically start until the end of December, I always pretend that the shift from Thanksgiving to Christmas is the same as the shift from fall to winter. I mean, it feels like it, right?
One of my favorite ways to make that shift is by switching up my wardrobe! This is one of the few times a year I allow myself to splurge. I feel like buying myself some new pieces to get in the winter-mood is very necessary, don’t you think? 😉
There are always a ton of sales right after Thanksgiving (hi, Black Friday!), so it’s definitely the best time to shop. Online. I refuse to brave the stores. My daily uniform at this time of year is pretty much leggings, a cozy sweater, and a bralette. At night, I like to curl up in some cute loungewear and then change into an adorable pair of pajamas before heading to bed.
I’m a huge believer in wearing cute lingerie and pajamas. I know a lot of people put more emphasis into their actual clothes, since that’s what most people will see, but I’m kinda the opposite. I prefer to wear similar outfits each day, so I spice up my life with undergarments and PJs. It makes me feel good. There’s something about wearing a cute pair of pajamas that’s a total confidence booster. Yeah, no one is going to see me, but I just feel better when I’m wearing something cuter than a plain old T-shirt. It’s self-care and self-love. What can I say…I like to dress up for myself. And when clothes are adorable and super comfy? Obviously I’m going to be obsessed.
This year I thought I’d share a few of the pieces I recently bought to switch up my wardrobe and transition myself from fall to winter! It’s still warm in Los Angeles so I can’t go too crazy with winter clothes, but nothing will stop me from living in sweaters. I don’t care if it’s 80 degrees outside.
As I’ve talked about before, I’m not a huge fan of normal bras. Not comfy. And when you wear oversized sweaters, you really don’t need one. Bralettes are much more comfortable, and I personally think they’re way cuter. I’d much rather have a lacey bralette peek out from under my shirt than a regular bra.
I recently discovered Adore Me and ordered a bunch of new bralettes from their site. I’m obsessed. It was really hard to stop myself from buying literally everything I saw. If you need some guidance, they even have a short quiz you can take online to figure out what style of lingerie would suit you best! And then I hit up Nordy’s, of course, because it’s my go-to for high-quality, cozy sweaters. I also popped onto the UO and ASOS websites – couldn’t help myself.
I also really really needed some new “cozy clothes.” I’ve been in desperate need of something looser than leggings but lighter than sweatpants to lounge around in. L.A. is still waaay too hot for sweatpants. I have been living in these Lauren joggers from Adore Me.
I meant for them to be my “lounging clothes,” but I can’t lie – I’ve worn these to class multiple times. They’re super light and comfortable, and so freakin’ cute.
Last up – PAJAMAS. These Marcella PJ’s from Adore Me are giving me life. The lace is adorable, and the material is so soft and cozy. I wanted a pair of pajama pants that would be light enough for L.A. nighttime weather, and these are absolutely perfect. Who says you can’t look cute when you go to bed?
Nordstrom, ASOS, Urban Outfitters, and Adore Me are all having amazing Black Friday sales throughout the entire weekend, so it’s the perf time to shop! I know everyone uses Black Friday to get ahead on holiday shopping, but why not treat yo’self?! Show yourself a little love this holiday season – you deserve it!
Anyone else feel like cute PJs and bras are total confidence boosters? XO
