Things I bought, things I want, cozy edition

8

It’s getting chillier here in Brooklyn, and—because I very much dislike being cold—I’m looking for pieces that impart warmth and chic in equal measure. I’ve been looking for a velour hoodie, but instead found this half-zip number, which comes in a few other good colors, and which I’m very tempted by.

Meanwhile, here’s a plush and well-priced hoodie.

These Haflinger wool clogs are the ideal indoor shoe, and I like the slightly thicker sole on this model.

This merino cashmere puffer won’t get you through the most treacherous days of winter, but for right now it would be ideal.

I love wearing safety orange, but not near my face and not an overwhelming amount of it, so these cashmere knitted gloves from Uniqlio seem ideal for my purposes.


The cutest, fuzziest alpaca blend beanie a lady could hope for.

Not quite so cozy but still pretty standout is this corduroy bucket hat from Madewell.

In my ongoing attempt to wear more color, I’m deviating from my usual only-black-socks M.O. and thinking about bright, fun ones, like these.

And finally: wearing a wool pull-on pant like this is as easy as throwing on sweats, but so much more polished.

    Kim, Bon Maison has amazing fancy socks as well. It’s such a good way to add a little punch to an outfit.

    Love the socks and gloves! I’m feeling a pop of green or orange myself, lately. Those Vince pants are so chic!

    I live in those Haflinger slippers at home. That plus Birks for warmer weather solve a lot of foot/back/hip issues brought on by going barefoot.

    Yes to velour and to the orange gloves – nice find!! … … … Does anyone have experience with acrylic socks? I wonder about those, bc I had some bamboo blend ones once, and my feet slid all around in my shoes, it was annoying. Whereas, for bedding, smoothness might be good. … … … Btw, Mimi A, did you mean the wool socks (in your comment on the podcast page)? Bc Costco is still making them. Did you just mean that they had run out? I usually see them around September or October. Sorry about that, if you can’t find them. (I think they are online still though, I just looked.) I often like the men’s colors better. Or, is there some otherrrrr Costco sock I need to be trying? I could probably use more socks. I don’t like to buy socks because new ones are always too tight in the ankles.

    Uniqlo long underwear! There’s a reason everyone raves about it.
