My Cozy Pandemic Style Basics


October 19, 2020

Well we are still in the pandemic and life is definitely not back to normal, but if you are like me you are finding that you are now leaving the house, but still not going anywhere if you know what I mean. So what does one wear when there is a chance you might get seen in public, but still want to be cozy while mostly at home? For me, it means fewer cords and more sweats.  I mean it’s not all bad! 

So I am stripping it down to basics – basically a long sleeve shirt, a sweater and something comfy on the bottom, maybe jeans if I am feeling dressy! Here are my favorite basics I am loving this fall.  

If you see a trend that most of my objects come from Gap owned companies- that is simply because I have a gap card and had a ton of rewards burning a hole in my pocket, not because they are paying me the big bucks. 

At the time of this post Gap, and Banana Republic are 50% off until midnight on 10/19 and J. Crew also has lots on sale and an extra 20% for J. Crew card holders.

My favorite cozy sweaters this fall.
  1. This Gap Marino wool sweater has been my go-to lately. (I actually think I have worn it every day – don’t tell) It’s cozy and not too warm and even better it’s washable.  I got it in several colors when they were on sale.  buy here
  1. This is J. Crew’s version of the Marino Wool sweater and it comes in 13 colors!!!! It is also washable. buy now
  1. My Favorite cashmere sweater. I go back and forth, but I always come back to the J. Crew Cashmere Crewneck.  I literally wear them into the ground. The good news is that it is under $100 and comes in a ton of colors, the bad news is they rarely put it on sale. buy here

  1. These Athleta joggers are my new fav. I am living in them. buy now
  1. These J. Crew joggers are for when you are working from home. (No one on zoom will even see them). buy now

Stay healthy and cozy and remember this one simple rule – the day you take your kids to school in your jammies is the day you will probably get in a fender bender, so put on your sweats!!!!
