From my desk, a chill reaches my spine. On my feet, fuzzy slippers attempt to keep me warm. The Daily plays on loop as white noise, weighing out the rotating sound of zoom meetings, crumpling paper, and kids chattering through this apartment. Wooden floors carry several small toes and even more voices. I’ve got a good few hours at this desk of mine, in this very autumnal room, and I’d like for it to be the most comfortable. Of course, this can be the desk itself, but I’m talking about smaller purchases that are like tiny investments; cozy slippers worn out of sight in meetings and chunky sweaters for tall backs for the coldest room in the joint.
I don’t need much. Heck, I don’t want much either. But in the spirit of sharing, and allowing my body and mind to accept the things I can not change, I am leaning into what maybe is needed that we have yet to truly broach. Just yesterday, both the kids said that they’d also love warmer socks or fuzzy slippers for comfort during their days around home this season. I agree.
Clothes, slight forms of comfort in corners that I have yet to fully give my attention to, provide quite the support to get through. It seems silly, and the theme of this week seems to be shaping up as one of persisting, and so that’s where I’d like to meet myself and you too.
Can clothes do that? Well, I am certain they can at least help.
Things To Consider:
+ A Ruffle-Neck Pullover over a basic t-shirt or your favorite summer dress.
+ heather gray Vara Slipper that feel cozy and chic
+ a mint green boat neck sweater
+ and worth-the-penny cozy pair for the kids
Are you grabbing a cozy sweater lately ? If so, why is it your favorite?

the power of clothes is real. clothes envelop my body as i attempt to navigate this world and not throw myself on the floor in despair. chunky sweaters that feel like the coziest blanket help. a step further, secondhand clothes remind me that i am not powerless, that i can vote with my money, words, actions and choices every single day. persist we will <3
I am loving the cooler fall weather! It always feel like such an exciting time, like a new year is starting. It’s been so humid here the last month and now I feel like I can reclaim long walks outside again.
My favorite sweater lately is an old, oversized cotton caramel colored gap sweater that I got as a hand me down last year. I went to a friend of a friend’s house party and it turned into a massive clothing swap. I have found that the comforting clothes I reach for most are usually handdowns!
