6 Cozy “At Home” Pieces I’ve Been Living In–Under $100!

This post brought to you in partnership with Nordstrom and Shopstyle

Happy Wednesday, friends!  

As this year is the year of “not getting dressed” I’m excited to be sharing some of my favorite cozy at-home staples in partnership with Nordstrom today! Nordstrom has always been one of my absolute favorite retailers, and I’m really excited to be working with them again. (This is our first partnership in a long time!) 

I have purchased all of these items over the past few months, and worn them TONS, especially as the weather has gotten colder and basically all I do is sit on the couch in front of our fireplace. ???? Highlighting the best cozy loungewear is by far the leading request I get in terms of style content, so if that’s what you’ve been waiting for–this post is for you! The best news: ALL of these essentials are under $100 at the most (and many are way under that!) 

One of the things I miss most this year is shopping in person at Nordstrom on Michigan Avenue and ending with a celebratory lunch at Nordstrom Cafe. ???? (The tomato soup! The chicken club!) It was always one of my favorite holiday shopping activities ever since I was a little girl. 

Luckily they still have lots of pandemic-perks that you can take advantage of in 2020–curbside pickup, free shipping and returns, plus, if you’re signed up for Nordy Club Rewards (totally free!) you earn points that translate into dollars that you can apply to future purchases! (More info right here!) 

Let’s get into today’s cozy essentials, shall we?

Barefoot Dreams Bathrobe: $99 

I bought a Barefoot dreams bathrobe at the start of the pandemic and it’s honestly one of my most favorite things I’ve purchased all year. It’s SO warm and seriously one of the softest things you’ve ever worn. I know BF gets a lot of hype, but the truth is, it gets all the hype because it’s just that good. If you’re looking to invest in a big super soft robe, this is it! You can’t beat it! Plus: this one is unisex–so if you’ve been looking for a robe for your favorite guy–get him this one! 

Waffle Joggers: $49 

You know that one pair of comfy pants that you look for first? Like you dig through your drawer and if they aren’t there you’re like NOOOO THEY’RE IN THE LAUNDRY!? These are those pants for me.

You remember these from this post but I cannot stop raving about them. They’re SO comfortable. I love the waffle material and the little button detail down the front. They kind of remind me of nostalgic old-school long-john pajamas. For whatever reason I think they’re cuter than a lot of other joggers and therefore I wear them several times per week. 

Butter socks: $9

These socks are one of the top items in my Jess’ Favorite Things Gift Guide because they are the best cozy socks ever. So super soft and fuzzy–and affordable! You’ll want to buy one as a stocking stuffer for all your friends, but a few pairs for you too. ???? 

Ugg Slippers: $89

I have a WHOLE blog post dedicated to these beauties because I love them so much, but just to reiterate again. These slippers are WONDERFUL. (After my most I also got several DM’s saying you loved your pairs too!) I wear them every day. Sometimes in addition to my butter socks for a very “2020” ensemble. 

Chunky Sweater: $65

One of my go-to moves is to pair a sweatpant/jogger with a pretty sweater (instead of a sweatshirt) so I feel a little more pulled together! It helps my creativity and also looks a little better for Zoom meetings. ???? I really love this one from Topshop which has such pretty sleeve and collar details, and I love the oatmeal-camel color that goes nicely with other neutrals! (Topshop makes really great sweaters in general if you’re looking for something different!) 

True & Co bralette: $44

This was my #1 bestseller of last month! I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, if I could afford to buy every one of you this bra, I would. It’s that great. I’m wearing it right now. I got it in three more colors. Honestly a lot of the colors are sold out in certain sizes but it doesn’t matter because nobody is seeing this bra anyway–I bought the bubblegum pink color and I’m totally fine with it because that’s how comfortable it is. ???? I have been looking for a totally wireless bralette that feels like second skin that also has removable cups. This one has all of that AND adjustable straps so you can criss-cross them or wear them regular. Runs TTS.
