It’s not the strangest thing to lose track of what day of the week it is anymore, but this week we really embrace it. Between Christmas and New Year’s Day is a period when time stops…but simultaneously speeds forward. The only thing that makes sense to wear right now is pajamas, the only shoes are slippers, and the only time to take a shower is right in the middle of the day. We want this official coziest week of the year to hold true to its name, so let’s get our pajamas and a cup of hot chocolate. If you have a fireplace, I highly suggest you get that going, too.
The formula is simple. You start with getting into pajamas ASAP. KULE happens to make a really good pair in both long and short. Don’t take our word or it though. Amanda Dobbins from the Ringer Dish Podcast has a glowing review of this chic, incredibly soft, cozy set. You should be wearing pajamas all day.
And with your fabulous pajamas as the base of your ensemble, you need some ultra cozy accessories. Think: cushy and festive socks, super soft shearling slippers, and a blanket to wrap it all up in.
You will also need to keep absolutely fabulous, but not fussy. This week is all about looking great with ease and effortlessness. A must is an original Carrie Bradshaw long pearl strand to wear with pajamas. It gives you the comfort off knowing that you could get up mid-movie or book to grab some extra popcorn from the corner store, and look glamorous doing so. Of course, you will also need a perfect and cool mug, one that fits a heaping serving of hot chocolate loaded up with marshmallows. For some guilt-free indulgence — a seemingly impossible combo, but one I recently found — dark cocoa covered almonds that come in serving size pouches (though I dare you to just have one). And while lounging in pearls, sipping hot chocolate, and snacking on chocolate covered almonds, you will need a face mask! A paste or sheet mask — whichever you prefer — that’s super restorative because this week is all about relaxing and renewing before the New Year, of course.
And of course, fancy but very cool and original champagne glasses with which to celebrate. Cheers 🥂 to a week of cozy relaxation, and a Happy New Year.
