Currently Loving .248

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! We are gearing up for another little snow storm tonight and this is our third weekend in a row that we've had winter storms. North Carolina doesn't get a lot of snow so this is really unusual for us and apparently the snow only likes to come on the weekends this year. I do love watching it snow! I'm like a kid when I see the first snowflakes fall!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! This week, we are continuing the theme of comfortable and cozy pieces. I just want to be as comfy as possible in January and really, all winter long. Being cold isn't an option for me!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. J E A N S | If you've been following along for awhile, you know that I love Madewell jeans, especially the Perfect Vintage style. I was in need of a new pair so I recently got these and I love them. They don't have any distressing so they are perfect to wear to work.

2. S N E A K E R S | I saw these fun sneakers on sale and really wanted them but my oldest daughter loved them too so I ended up purchasing them for her. They are even cuter in person, still on sale, and they fit true to size.

3. L E G G I N G S | I recently bought my first pair of flare leg pull on pants and now I am really loving flares again. I was a big fan of flares in the early 2000s and now I remember why. This black pair of flare leggings is on my wish list!

4. B A G | I've never met an animal print Madewell bag that I didn't love. This one is such a great size and I love the print!

5. H E A D B A N D S | These headbands were another purchase for my oldest daughter. I wear headbands often but she wears them every single day. They are apart of her signature look and she's picky about which ones she will wear. If it's just slightly uncomfortable, it's no go for her. We found this pack of nine headbands for under $13 and she has reported that they are so comfortable to wear all day long! Yay for a great budget friendly find!

6. P U L L O V E R | I just got this Target pullover in the mail this week and it's a new favorite. The fabric is so soft, it has zippers on the side, and thumb holes. Also, the turtleneck is so cozy! It's only $30 but feels like a much more expensive pullover. I found it to fit true to size.

7. E A R R I N G S | Heart shaped everything, forever and always. I am loving this dainty heart shaped earrings! They would make a cute Valentine's Day gift, too.

8. S W E A T S H I R T | If it isn't comfy, I don't want it, especially this time of year! This sweatshirt looks so comfortable and cozy. It's also on my wish list and comes in lots of colors!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Friday! Last weekend, I tried ice skating for the first time in my 36 years of life. And wow, it was so hard for me! I thought it would be but goodness gracious, I was so bad it at. I had to hold onto the little plastic whale helper (that's definitely made for children) or the side railing. At one point, I fell down and couldn't figure out how in the world I was going to get up. Lots of fun and laughs!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! It's finally feeling like wintertime here so I have been bundled up in cozy layers along with pops of pink and heart shaped everything. I've also pretty much only worn sneakers the last few months and I'm okay with that. I am currently all about being comfortable!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. T O P | I already have this top in a cream color but I think I need the black one too. It's so soft, cozy, and comfortable! It's also a leggings friendly length and fits true to size.

2. R I N G | How cute is this ring?! Hearts aren't just for Valentine's Day but I always find myself wearing all of my favorite heart shaped things this time of year. I think I need this ring too!

3. J A C K E T | This denim jacket was one of my Christmas gifts and I absolutely love it! I already owned and loved the distressed version of this jacket but I wanted a non-distressed option, especially for wearing to work. I sized up one size for the best fit.

4. B A G | Do I need another bag? Definitely not. Is this one going on my wish list anyway? Definitely. I love the color and versatility of this one!

5. N E C K L A C E | Yes, I included another piece of heart shaped jewelry! This dainty necklace is so pretty. I am a big fan of all of my Madewell jewels.

6. C O A T | I bought a similar coat this year and I think a camel coat is definitely a closet staple. Dress it up with boots or pair it with your favorite leggings and sneakers. It instantly takes you look up a notch and makes you look so put together... and warm!

7. S N E A K E R S | These sneakers have been a game changer for me! I own two pairs of them and they have relieved my heals of so much pain that I was having. They are cute AND incredibly comfortable! Everything that I want in a sneaker. I am tempted to get a third color option!

8. J E A N S | These are the jeans I'm wearing with my denim jacket above and they are my favorite! So comfortable and flattering. I reach for this pair more than any other!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Friday! I'm finally back with a new blog post! I hope you all had an amazing holiday season with your family and friends. This week was back to reality for us with our regular work and school schedules. Being back to a routine is great but I am definitely missing sleeping in every morning and watching the same movie on repeat with the family (Encanto... it's super cute)!

Today, I'm sharing my first roundup of what I'm Currently Loving since the beginning of December. It was a busy month that was focused on shopping for others so today's post was fun to put together since I really haven't shopped for myself recently. Ok, I take that back. I bought my own Christmas gifts but I ordered most of those at the end of November. Does anyone else pick out their own gifts?! It's a win win situation for my husband and I. I do make him wrap them for me though!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. T E E | It's almost time for my second favorite holiday, Valentine's Day! I know most people can take or leave this holiday because it's kind of cheesy but I love it. I love the flowers, the candy, the hearts, and the pink. It's just a fun holiday that I'll always love. This tee screams Happy Valentine's Day to me and I think I need it to wear on repeat for the next month!

2. S N E A K E R S | These sneakers were one of my Christmas gifts (see all of my goodies below). I already own this style of sneakers in another color and I loved them so I had to get this color as well. The black and white is just a classic and goes with so much! I also got them for my oldest daughter and I think she's worn them every single day since Christmas. We are big fans! They fit true to size.

3. B R A L E T T E | I am a big fan of bralettes, especially comfy ones! I ordered this $10 one last week when I was placing an order to try it out and it's a winner. I love it so much that I already ordered a second black one and a white one. The ribbed fabric is so comfortable on your skin!

4. H E A D B A N D | This headband is also one of my Christmas gifts (see above) and I highly recommend it. I am super picky about headbands. If it's uncomfortable within the first hour of wearing it, it goes in the trash can, lol. These headbands are so comfy that you'll forget you even have it on! Bonus: it's currently on sale!

5. B A G | This black leather bag is the same as my animal print one (also from the Christmas goodies pic). It's a small bag but it's perfect for when you just need a few things for running errands or going out. I can find a small wallet, my car key, lip glosses, mints, etc. in my mine with no problem. This black version is currently on sale for 40% off!

6. L E G G I N G S | I have been living in leggings lately (Tuesday was my first day in jeans in a really, really long time) and this pair is one of my very favorites. I throw on leggings every single morning and I have quite the collection of black leggings. My favorites are these and my Lululemon ones but honestly, these are just as good as the Lululemon leggings but they are more than half the price! I highly recommend them to leisure or working out.

7. E A R R I N G S | Ok, these earrings are my favorite pick! I mean, how cute are they?! I love heart shaped everything and this pair is just calling my name. So perfect for Valentine's Day and everyday!

8. S W E A T S H I R T | Since I'm living in leggings, I need leggings friendly sweatshirts to complete the cozy look. I am loving this option and it has pockets! Yes!

Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
