It hard to believe, but Kyle and I witnessed the season’s first snow from our kitchen window in Maine this morning! Yes, that means early morning temperatures are dipping into mid-to-high 20s, and afternoon temperatures are capping out in the mid 40s. Since we arrived in early August and weren’t planning on staying beyond October, I naively failed to pack virtually any warm layers– just bathing suits and a handful of sundresses. I ventured to Augusta yesterday afternoon to do some much-needed shopping for comfy loungewear at Kohl’s, and I left with two full shopping bags full of Cuddl Duds essentials.
As I was checking out, the cashier said, “OMG. I love these things, especially for snow shoeing. They’re the absolute BEST layers!” I haven’t gone snow shoeing (yet), but I did test her theory while playing in the remnants of fallen snow this morning, and I couldn’t agree more. I layered a scarf over this cowlneck tunic, which is secretly layered on top of a stretch crewneck top, and I layered a pair of stretch leggings over a pair of fleece-lined leggings. Head to the bottom of this post for full comfy loungewear details– plus another look and a $50 Amazon gift card giveaway!
Shop the Look: Cowlneck Tunic: Cuddl Duds, layered over Stretch Crewneck Top: Cuddl Duds | Stretch Leggings: Cuddl Duds, layered over Fleecewear with Stretch Leggings: Cuddl Duds | Scarf: Kohl’s | Hat: Cuddl Duds | Lined Sweater Socks: Cuddl Duds
Oh, and the best thing about smart layering is that the layers can be stripped off at your leisure. When I got inside, I cozied up in my favorite chair with my new book The Underground Railroad, which is awesome, and layered down (so to speak) in an evergreen wrap-over tunic, stretch leggings, and (my personal favorite) a pair of lined sweater socks.
