A huge thank you to Kohl’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post!
When I was 19-years-old, I packed up my belongings and headed west to California for my first big life adventure. My first “big girl” job where I worked classic hours, had my own office — and the most important part in all of this — had a chance to curate the perfect professional wardrobe. My absolute favorite pieces in that wardrobe came from Kohl’s, where I fell hard and fast for LC Lauren Conrad blouses and blazers, Vera Wang dress pants, and the perfect outfit accents from Kohl’s jewelry section!
Years later, Kohl’s is still one of my favorite places to go and browse the new edits from LC Lauren Conrad — who has expanded her line into even more dreamy pieces — as well as SO many other favorite brands of mine like Elizabeth & James, Levi’s, TOM’s shoes and Adidas! It’s truly a one-stop-shop for all my favorite things — comfortable sweaters, cute jewelry, athletic wear, home decor….
Kohl’s Is Spot-On For Cozy Winter Outfit Updates
Guys, they even have a massive section right now of the BEST slippers (I almost bought three different pairs last week) — which is why I popped over there recently to curate a few cozy outfit options to celebrate the holidays at home this year.
Instead Of Sweatpants: Levi’s High-Rise Skinny Jeans & The Softest LC Lauren Conrad Sweater
My goal when dressing for the holidays right now is to keep it casual yet put-together. It’s been a loooong year of sweatpants, so I wanted a few options that felt like a step above, yet still comfortable enough to kick my feet up and drink all the eggnog (cause let’s be real, that’s about all that’s happening this year — oh and lots and lots of newborn baby snuggles *dreamy sigh*). Since I also spent the majority of this year pregnant, I made a fast dash towards the Levi’s jeans section, where it felt like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when my hands landed on a pair of 720 High-Rise Super Skinny, and they didn’t have the word “maternity” in the label.
I paired my new jeans with the SOFTEST. SWEATER. EVER. from LC Lauren Conrad’s line. She curated THE perfect holiday edit of festive sweaters, sequined skirts, oversized cardigans, and everything else you may have been dreaming of this year — I wanted every item. I was in love with the “Kiss Me” and mistletoe design on this one, along with the extra long cuff on the sleeves.
Remember how I said I almost bought 3 pairs of slippers? Well, the pair that won out was this smoking slipper — I love how it looks like a normal flat with a hard bottom, but the inside is soft and silky!
I threw on a pair of earrings that felt *oh* so *festive* and a crazy soft beanie to complete my outfit, since styling my hair isn’t high on my list right now. I love the winter white and the pom on top of the beanie!
Keeping It Real With Elevated Loungewear: Wide Leg Pants & A Ribbed Turtleneck Sweater
I also wanted a more relaxed outfit option — whether for watching the ball drop from my couch or when I have to take off the Levi’s from eating too much (hey, just keeping it real) — so I was pumped to find Vera Wang has an entire cozy line, including these pants that are lounge-approved, but with a style that feels chic enough to dress up in heels if one so desires!
Kohl’s exclusive Elizabeth & James line has a bunch of beautiful sweaters for the winter, including this ribbed turtleneck I fell in love with. Found another festive pair of earrings, and knew I could slip on my new smoking slippers to complete the perfect look!
