Happy Wednesday, everybody!
Well, I took a little unplanned break from the blog, which is why there wasn’t a post on Monday. I had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend with my little family, and I just couldn’t bring myself to break out the computer. I loved on my boys, they loved on me, and it was pretty dang near perfect.
But today I’m back and SUPER excited about the pieces I’m highlighting. Today’s pieces are DARLING, but they are also extremely COMFY and incredibly COZY. We’re talking stupid cozy. And listen, never has being cozy been more important to me than it is now. To be honest, the fact that these items are also DARLING is really just a bonus.
I’m telling you, these cozy pieces will help you live your best quarantine life. You might as well be comfy AND CUTE when juggling working at home, cleaning the kitchen ALL THE TIME (am I right?), and helping your kids with their e-learning.
Y’all know I’ve always loved the Gibson brand (remember when I worked with them and had a holiday shirt named after me and my picture was ont he Nordstrom site?), but I’ve always been the biggest fan of their cozy line. They are famous for their cozy pieces and have an awesome selection to choose from right now. I don’t know about y’all, but we like to keep our home quite cool, so these lightweight and cozy pieces are PERFECT for me while staying at home (even in the heat of Summer).
And great news! The code SHEAFFER25 will get you 25% OFF all of the Gibson pieces in today’s post and your entire order at Gibson. There’s FREE SHIPPING too!
UPDATE: There seems to be a bit of a loading delay on the Gibson site right now. Be patient, and the item pages will come up. Trust me, these pieces are worth the small wait!
WRAP TOP AND JOGGERS
Gibson’s light weight fleece pieces are what I feel really put them on the map (people are OBSESSED), and I’m so happy to be featuring several of those pieces today!
Let’s start out with this super cute faux wrap top. It’s made of their famous lightweight fleece and it’s great for lounging (you will not believe how soft it is), but it’s also cute enough for Zoom conference calls too.
Here’s the deal on wrap tops… while I love the way they look, they most often don’t work with my chest. I was thrilled when I tried this one and loved the fit! It’s not too low cut, and it’s very flattering. It also comes in grey, black, a dark green, and a grey and white stripe that is super cute. For size reference, I’m wearing a small. UPDATE: Y’all sold the blush top out today in several sizes! Click HERE for a very similar top if you are dying for a wrap top in blush (and you can use the code on it too)!
I wanted to go ALL IN WITH THE COZY FACTOR for this outfit, so I paired the top with their lightweight fleece joggers. I’m wearing the petite small in the joggers here because I wanted them to hit me at the ankle, but the petite also made them more fitted on me. I have a pair of regular small joggers too (not petite) that are a much more relaxed fit if that’s what you are more interested in.
OPEN SWING CARDI
This cardi is a super soft knit with an open front and a high low hem. I love the casual vibe. I think it looks great with the shorts, but my favorite way to wear it is with the joggers which you will see later in the post. I’ll also be pairing it with white jeans.
I’m wearing the mauve (I actually think it’s like a blush), but it also comes in black and grey. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
It really is a perfect light layer.
And if you didn’t grab the neutral wooden tassel necklace last week, you are in luck that the code is still active! Use the code SHOPSMALL for 30% OFF and FREE SHIPPING.
Okay, let’s talk about the joggers.
If you’ve been following for awhile, you are aware that I’m borderline obsessed with joggers. I like thin ones, I like thick ones, I like full length ones, I like capri ones. I JUST LIKE JOGGERS.
This pair from Gibson has always been in my Top 3 pairs of joggers. I love that they are super light weight and although they are great for lounging at home, I also love throwing them on with sneakers to bop around town. This particular pair boasts cozy brushed fleece fabric, a drawstring waist, and front pockets. In the past, I’ve had many readers that say they slip these on every single night after they get home from work. Now that most people are working from home, I’m imagining that these babies are getting worn all day a great majority of the week.
Again, I’m wearing a petite small here (I’m 5’4″), but the regular smalls provide a more relaxed look. BIG TIP: I thought the drawstring was too long, so I cut it on both sides and then tied a knot on both ends.
WRAP TOP AND JOGGERS
Here’s the same outfit I was wearing in the kitchen picture above, just shown in a selfie since I know some of you prefer items shown this way. I think you can see how you could totally be wallowing on the couch as comfy as can be, but you could hop on a zoom call and the top would have you looking all sorts of put together.
V NECK AND JOGGERS
This next top surprised me. I mean, it’s just a long sleeve v neck, but it is definitely one of my favorite things in the post. I don’t know why, but it’s so flipping cute! This little stripe caught my eye, and it has the perfect v, a slightly dropped shoulder, and thumb holes! AND OHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYYY WORD IT’S SO SOFT.
I also just like the way it fits. It lays nicely, and it isn’t too fitted OR too slouchy.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
OPEN SWING CARDI AND JOGGERS
This is the same open swing cardi you saw above with my denim shorts (in the outdoor shot), but I told you I also loved pairing it with joggers.
MUST HAVE DENIM JACKET AND JOGGERS
I would totally wear the above outfit at home as well as out of the house, but the below outfit shows how I most often wear my joggers out of the house. I’m constantly grabbing my denim jacket and pairing the outfit with some cute sneakers. I especially love wearing them with my favorite Amazon slip on sneakers. I couldn’t find them when taking the below picture, so just imagine them on me with this outfit. (They were in the laundry room by the way. Ha!)
I haven’t talked about the mesh sneakers in a hot minute, so I thought I would do a quick review. I have both the 06702 black and the 6701 Apricot (think a nice neutral taupe with maybe a hint of blush) and wear both of them all the time. I’m typically a 6-6/12, and the 6s are good for me in these.
These sneakers are like no other sneakers I’ve ever had. They almost feel like a thick and tight sock when wearing them, but they are obviously shoes because of the soles and the tread on the bottom. One reader said she “wore them all over Europe with no pain” and another said that she “pops them in the washing machine and they come out perfectly“. Another said that she wears them without socks “but they never get stinky like her Converse“. All really good information, right?
They come in TONS of colors and go on easily with just a little tug on the tabs in the back.
They have over 8 THOUSAND 5 Star Reviews, and the price point is $32.99. INCREDIBLE. You can click HERE to see them on me.
PONTE WRAP TOP AND JOGGERS
I’ve got another wrap top and pair of joggers for you, but these are a ponte knit, which is quite a bit more substantial of a fabric than the fleecy items above. The top is very versatile and I think you will find yourself wearing it everywhere, not just at home. It’s a closer fit than the blush wrap top above, so I’m wearing a medium in this one.
Just like the top, these joggers are a more substantial and heavier knit than the fleece joggers. They have a banded top, pockets, and banded ankles too. I’m wearing a small in the joggers.
This wrap jumpsuit is made out of a soft jersey knit, so you definitely feel like you are in pajamas.
I need to add a snap to the top because it does drape open, but the comfort is on another level. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
If wearing it out of the house, I will most likely throw a denim jacket on top.
RUFFLE SLEEVE JUMPSUIT
Another jumpsuit that feels like pajamas! This one has a ruffle sleeve, so click over to the site to see it without the jacket. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
Now I want to show you how I mix and match lots of the cozy tops above with my favorite denim shorts! They’d obviously all work with jeans as well.
WRAP TOP AND DENIM SHORTS
I love this top with the joggers, and I love it just as much with the denim shorts. I’m wearing a small in the top and a 27 in the shorts.
This light blush color of the top goes perfectly with the neutral wooden tassel necklace. Remember to use the code SHOPSMALL for 30% OFF and FREE SHIPPING.
FLEECE V NECK AND DENIM SHORTS
I’ve worn this top 3 times in the last two weeks, twice with the joggers and once with these shorts. It also comes in a navy and a black. I’m wearing a small.
PONTE KNIT WRAP TOP AND DENIM SHORTS
This top is totally casual when worn with joggers or shorts, but you could also dress it up with boot cut jeans and heels! It’s a great top. I’m wearing a medium.
OPEN SWING CARDI AND DENIM SHORTS
What’s not to love.
I’m dying over this cozy fleece off the shoulder top. It’s slouchy, perfectly cozy, and so dang cute! I absolutely love this neutral leopard, but if you don’t, there are several color choices. It’s already on sale, and the code SHEAFFER25 will get you an additional 25% OFF.
If you love the open swing cardi above (I styled it with both denim shorts and the grey joggers), you can get these pants and make it a matching set.
And oh my word at this puff sleeved top. Those sleeves! That neckline!
I hope you enjoyed all of the cozy goodness in today’s post. I know being comfy certainly makes me a happier person, so hopefully today’s pieces will bring a bit of happy to your lives too!
And don’t forget, the entire site is 25% OFF with the code SHEAFFER25.
