LOFT Fireside Sweater

J.Crew Factory Vail Parka

When I was putting together this post, I had no idea this sweater was called the “Fireside Sweater,” but it’s definitely the perfect name for it. I received this sweater as a Christmas gift, and it’s definitely perfect for this winter days when all you want to do is cozy up by the fire with a great book and a cup of coffee.

As many of you know (or have experienced firsthand), we got hit with a ton of snow this weekend. I hope everyone was safe! I wore this sweater on Friday to work and then for happy hour, which then turned into drinks with neighbors as the snow piled up. This LOFT sweater was perfect for those fun lazy snow days.

I love the way that this navy and black look came together. I almost shot the entire outfit without the coat, but I think the color combo definitely works. Anyone who says navy and black don’t go together is crazy!

Wearing: J.Crew Factory parka (20% off; I was unable to include the Factory version in the widget below, so I included the J.Crew retail version as another option.) | LOFT sweater (on sale; size up for looser fit) | Lululemon pants (size up) | Steve Madden boots (TTS) | Ray-Ban aviators

I’m relieved that the snow came on a weekend when I had zero plans to do anything. After all, we all need weekends to recharge (and do absolutely nothing), right?! I’m thinking one major snow storm is enough for me though.

Let’s move on to the outfit, as most of it is on sale! I’m always kind of bummed when retail stores start getting rid of their winter items so quickly. I get it, but I definitely won’t be putting away my winter clothing for another couple of months.

Anyways, my sweater is currently marked down to $25! It’s definitely a cozy sweater. I recommend sizing up if you want a slightly looser and longer fit. As you can see, it’s the perfect length for leggings.

These Steve Madden boots are 20% off at Nordstrom! I have them in both black and brown, and they go with just about any outfit. I highly recommend them. Bonus, they are really comfortable.

If you’re still on the hunt for a great coat, this J.Crew Factory parka is still available in a few sizes and on sale as well. The J.Crew Chateau parka is another great option (in the widget bel0w), but I know it’s not in everyone’s budget.
