Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is coming. As the holiday arrives, I do everything I can to set the mood. I decorate the house—think leaves and pumpkins everywhere; I light fall-scented candles—apple spice all day; and I wear all the cozy loungewear—even if it is still sunny and seventy degrees outside.
Along with creating a cozy ambiance inside my home, I love updating my wardrobe with three pieces every year. There’s something about wearing specific items during the coziest time of year that gets me in the mood every time.
First up? Pajamas. I love buying a new pair of Christmas pajamas every year. (I’m working on matching with my husband and pup one of these seasons.) There’s something about waking up on Christmas morning (or lounging around on Christmas Eve) in cozy, festive pajamas that amps up the holiday cheer. Target is my go-to for thermal or flannel sets in an array of patterns.
Second? Shoes. A new pair of dressy heels or festive flats is a must. Especially something sparkly, plaid, or velvet. I love a shoe that you bring out only for the holidays. And J.Crew and Kate Spade are two of my favorite places to buy them. A little pricey? Yes. A whole lot of special? Indeed. Like these pointed-toe flats with bow in tartan from J.Crew or these black velvet heels from Kate Spade.
Third? A coat. Living in Southern California, time is limited when you can wear anything warm. So? Make the most out of it. A new coat is a fun way to winterize your typical summer-all-long wardrobe. If you’re wary about spending money on an item you’ll only wear two months out of the year, head to Crossroads. Here, you’ll find a wide selection of coats from various brands—at extremely low prices. Last year, I found one of my favorites—a blue plaid Zara coat—for under $30.
