How to Stay Chic & Cute while Getting Cozy + 10 Blush Sweaters Under $100

Happy Weekend LOVEs!!! I hope you’ve got some fun plans going this weekend!!

Seattle has been so beautiful lately and I can’t get enough of it, especially the beautiful sunset.

The other day, I was talking about how lovely the weather in Seattle has been lately with my friend who lives in the East Coast, but she told me it’s still super cold over there and wished that it would get warmer. Omg, that’s right. Even though I am enjoying the lovely almost-spring weather nowadays here in Seattle, somewhere in the world is still frosty or even snowy. And you know, the weather definitely affects our mood on what to dress for a day.

So she inspired me to create today’s post: how you can nail a cozy-chic aesthetic.


1. Avoid dark hues

When the weather is shitty and so cold outside, our mood is greatly influenced by that when it comes to dressing up. All black everything is still cool and edgy, and I LOVE rocking that outfit! But if you want to change things up a little bit, try some pieces that are brighter.
Colored coats have been super popular and I am all about them. If you are a little shy about a colored coat, the best piece for you is a white coat like this one. It will still keep you warm plus out of the “head-to-toe-boring-black” category.

2. Mixing it up with prints

I know it’s tempting to hibernate in a quiet palette of blacks and grays when it’s freezing, but try adding a little print here and there to lift your spirits and your style, like I added a leopard printed skirt and cozied up with tights rather than black skinny jeans.

3. Ditch the Beanie

I’ve been loving a beanie over years and it’s a perfect timeless winter staple hat. But berets are woke. They are taking over the spot and it’s chicer and cuter. Plus it’s wayyy more fashionable. This french hat is not just a hat, it’s a piece that compliments the look. Adding this piece can really elevate your outfit.

4. Add a pop of color

Mixing a color is definitely one of the best ways to stay away from looking dull during the cold weather. Yellow, orange, blue, red, purple, and green; the color choice is endless. But the versatile hue to me is blush. It’s also one of the major colors for spring. Even though you are still battling the chilly temperature, try or swap for a blush colored sweater. I already purchased a bunch because spring colored knits are actually still wearable even after the weather gets warmer with shorts & flowy dresses.

Speaking of blush toned sweaters, I’ve rounded up 10 of them under $100 for you to add to your closet!
