Cozy Loungewear

Thomas and I had a relaxing Valentine’s Day at home yesterday. He cooked me dinner and we indulged in one too many treats! It was so nice to unwind together after a busy week. I wore this cozy loungewear for our romantic night in. Cozy LoungewearThis grey cardigan is SO reasonable (it’s under $8!!!) and comes in several colors. It’s made of such a nice, thick material and drapes perfectly. My pet peeve with long cardigans is when they don’t stay on your shoulders, are too thin, or get stretched out. This one stays put and is really good quality! It’s from a line that I buy a ton of my cozy loungewear from; Walmart Fashion’s Time and Tru collection. All of the pieces are so classic, affordable, and high quality. Classic DenimI’ve always loved a stretchy, mid rise skinny jean. They’re so flattering and when you find ones like these black ones – you never want to take them off! I can’t wear low rise jeans anymore – they just aren’t practical for my lifestyle (I’m always bending over to pick up Charlie!) and stretch is a necessity! A few other jeans I like are; these light wash ones, these ripped hem ones, and these light grey distressed ones. Henley T-shirtsI bought 3 of these cotton henley t-shirts because I knew I would wear them all the time. The short sleeve white one I’m wearing here is my FAVE. I also got it in the long sleeve version, and the tan color. It’s a great basic that you can layer or wear alone. I know I’ll wear this short sleeve one all spring/summer long. Spring Transition PiecesSpeaking of spring, Walmart Fashion has a ton of cute items for the upcoming season (which I am COUNTING DOWN until!) I love that their SCOOP collection always has classic yet on trend pieces that I can easily mix and match. I just ordered this white v-neck sweater, this elegant paisley skirt, and this chic sweater tank.

10 Fun Date Night Ideas

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and maybe you’re like me and over the same ol’ dinner plans. Or maybe you’re just looking for a few fun date night ideas. Either way, I wanted to share a few of our favorite date nights and ways to switch things up a bit. (Send this to your hubby! ;0) Fun Date Night Ideas Game Night We LOVE playing Scrabble and got a special edition board from T’s sister for Christmas. I’m insanely competitive and we keep an ongoing score! We drink martinis and have cheese while we play! Cozy Night In Make homemade popcorn (it’s so easy and makes ALL the difference – all you need are kernels, coconut oil, pink sea salt and a pot!), and put on a classic movie like Casablanca, Thomas Crown Affair, or any of the James Bond movies. Whip up an Italian Dish Even if you can’t cook – it’s fun to try with wine flowing and classic Italian music playing in the background. Make a big cheese plate to nosh on so you don’t get hangry before the food is ready! Try lasagna, chicken parm, and turkey meatballs. Staycation Get out of your day to day environment and book a cool hotel for a night! Meet at the lobby bar, and enjoy all of the hotel amenities – from the pool to the spa, restaurants and more. It will totally spice things up. Do Something Sporty Bond with your man over his favorite sport – and let him teach you a technique or two. Think tennis, golf, go-kart racing! Get Fancy Get all dolled up and pick a hotel lobby bar to meet at. Then book a table at a fancy restaurant you wouldn’t normally try, and end the night at a jazz or comedy club. Sushi Night When all else fails, head to your best local sushi spot. Everyone can find something they like at a sushi joint plus it’s a very shareable food. Sit back, relax, maybe order a sake, and enjoy! Channel Your Inner Picasso Head to the closest art store and pick up paint, brushes and canvases. Pick a theme – or throw any boundaries out the window and just paint whatever your heart desires! See where the wind blows ya! Take A Class A cooking class, a wine tasting, an olive oil sampling, or a cheese pairing class are all perfect (and yummy) ways to switch up your typical date night. Couples Massage T and I love to go to this hole in the wall place in West Village for cheap 1 hour massages. I think it’s legit $40 for an hour!!! It’s such a nice treat and way to unwind together.

Shades of Grey

I love a monochromatic outfit anytime of year, but especially in the winter when you can layer layer layer! We need all the layers we can get on the East coast right now because it’s been freeeeezing. My secret to staying warm in the winter is a combination of things, but involves one common factor; cashmere. How To Stay Warm In The WinterCashmere is my secret weapon to combatting the cold. It’s something that is SO worth investing in during the winter. Whether it be a cashmere scarf, a cashmere hat, a cashmere sweater, or a cashmere coat – trust me, you’ll be so glad you splurged. Cashmere is such a high-quality material and really keeps you warm. Some of my favorite cashmere pieces are from White + Warren. I own several of their hats and scarves, and am so impressed at how thick and cozy everything is! I also LOVE Vince’s cashmere sweaters – I own about 7 of them in various colors and they’ve lasted for years. Best Cashmere SweatersIn addition to Vince cashmere sweaters, White + Warren also makes great cashmeres sweaters, as does Intermix and Nordstrom. This cream v-neck Nordstrom Signature sweater is one that I’ve been reaching for all winter long because it’s the perfect length and cut. And this one is a steal for under $50! I bought this Intermix cropped sweater in 3 colors – and love it tucked into pencil skirts and high waisted pants. Winter AccessoriesShop the rest of my outfit – including this grey winter coat, these grey distressed jeans, and these Joie suede booties (which are SO comfy) below!
