Cozy Essentials for Winter

Outfit Details

| White Tee (on sale for $10.50) | Sweater Leggings (40% off) | Slippers (so soft!) | Knit Hat (40% off) | Blanket |


I can’t believe it’s already December! The Christmas season is here and so is the cold weather. As a person who is always cold, I usually have to wear a million layers in the winter especially in Chicago when it can be in the negatives temperature-wise. However, we’re a few weeks away from Christmas and I really love this time of year. I’m all about the cozy life especially in the cold months, because who wants to go out and dress up in the snow and ice? Staying in is the new going out! Being the true leggings girl that I am, I stock up on sweater leggings because they’re honestly the greatest things ever. Also, can we talk about knit hats? Not only are they super cute and warm, but they’ll save you from bad hair days (or for me, an entire week). I rounded up some cozy essentials that will help you get through these cold winter months as well as some items for around your home that can create a cozy atmosphere.


This fuzzy sweatshirt is absolutely amazing and incredibly warm

These plush joggers

These socks are warm and buttery soft! I purchased one pair and after wearing them, I went back for more

These fluffy earmuffs

These slippers (because you can never have enough)



-I think this one is obvious, but Bath and Body Works candles are definitely a MUST

-More home fragrances with Yankee Candles. In particular, these wax melts are amazing and have a strong, long lasting smell

-Blankets, blankets and more blankets! If you’re looking to splurge, Barefoot Dreams is the way to go because of how soft and well-made their blankets are. The one pictured above is from Nordstrom. I also like this and this. I also own this blanket from Target and I got the larger size which is exceptional for cuddling.

-MUGS! The addiction is real. I’m obsessed with collecting cute coffee mugs and it drives my husband Chris crazy. I get mine from all over especially Homegoods, Etsy and Pottery Barn, but since Target has been killing it with the home decor, I’ve seen some cute ones there as well.


I could honestly go on forever about cozy things because with everything I buy, coziness is a factor, but I wanted to share some of my essentials with all of you!

    Awww.. the outfit is so lovely. But in India we do not have extreme low temperature during winter too which I used to face in UK.

      Aww do you miss it? I like it sometimes. The snow is pretty, but can be a pain to drive in.

    You do look warm and cozy! Now I want to put on a hat and drink a warm cup of tea and snuggle up in my blanket as well. I love feeling cozy in the winter

    Good article on Cozy Essentials for Winter. I’m from New York where we have cold winters but always heard that Chicago winters were way harsher.

      Thank you! Chicago winters can be very brutal. Luckily it hasn’t been too bad so far. I want to go to New York so bad! It looks beautiful 🙂
