It’s been another crazy week here but I wanted to get this post out because I know everyone is right in the middle of holiday shopping and what better gift idea then lounge wear? If you have someone in your family who is all about being comfortable and stylish, then they will definitely appreciate any of the items I mention below.
I included items I’ve already owned for at least a year but are still popular and currently available in the stores and some new items I saw (and some I tried on) when I was at Nordstrom’s private holiday shopping event this past Sunday night. How ironic, of course, that I am writing this while sitting on my couch in my lounge wear? Ha!
Make + Model
My favorite ‘classic’ lounge wear items are by Make + Model from Nordstrom. I don’t say this just because I love Nordstrom but because I have multiple items from the Make + Model line from a year or two ago that they still carry and there’s a reason for that – they’re comfortable, well made, in style, and priced reasonably enough (notice how I said that – reasonably enough. Not cheap, just reasonable, lol). For tops, I love the Brushed Hacci tops. They are a really soft material that are not too hot or too cold, making them perfect for lounging in. I also find they layer well over a tank top (I usually de-layer when I get in to bed and sleep in just a tank top so I know this from experience). There are also the Make + Model Jogger Pants (which I have) that are in the same material as the hacci tops, or the Best Boyfriend Version which are the looser pant version. Oh, and if you don’t want a classic style of top, go for this Make + Model fuzzy sweater. It’s so fun and cozy looking!
I also love the Junk Food brand lounge tops. Most people know Junk Food for their sports and kitschy tops but I’m finding they really make great lounge tops, too. I got my first Junk Food top last holiday season, the ‘I Hate Mornings’ top below, and it quickly became a favorite for throwing on with leggings on a Sunday, or even as pajamas when I travel. Then, my daughters got me the gray top below for Mother’s Day. I also love that top for not only lounging in, but for layering over my gym tank top. These tops are just soo comfortable! A slightly similar material to the Make + Model tops but baggier and longer. Also, know that these style tops ran big and were still a bit roomy in the XS.
The Alternative Apparel distressed hoodie I’m wearing above is from last Winter. Last year’s version ran really small. It ran so small that while I am wearing the small, it fit more like an XS. Unfortunately, I waited too long to order it and it was either a small or a large. So, small it was! But, really I wanted the medium. And guess what? This sweatshirt was no where else to be found, trust me, I looked! Fast forward to Sunday at the Nordstrom holiday shopping event and I was so excited to see that they were now carrying it, plus some coordinating distressed jogger pants!
Of course I grabbed one to try on. This year’s version seems to be a bit more true to size, so I grabbed a small to try on and felt it was the right size. This hoodie is just as comfortable as last year’s version, let me tell you! It was tempting not to buy another one. And the jogger sweat pants weren’t too bad either. I really liked how they had the same distressing. Also, they had a slightly different version of this sweatshirt in what they call the ‘Cutout Sweatshirt’ that has the elbows cutout. So, if you don’t want a hood, it’s a good thought.
Other Junk Food Tops
So, there were other Junk Food lounge tops they had in store I really liked. Like seriously liked. And then I couldn’t decide which I really wanted and then felt guilty since I didn’t need any…..Sigh. #toomanychoices
I did try on the Junk Food Stay-Cation Top though. These all seem to run differently then the ones I have, meaning they are more true to size. Less big and baggy but still plenty comfortable! I tried on a small. I also love the little embroidered stars. Such a cute detail!
Other Lounge Wear Items
Below are some other lounge wear tops, bottoms, a few pairs of slippers and socks I saw, too, that would also make great gifts. No pom pom socks for me though – once you have puppies, they’re a nightmare and guaranteed to last a short time. Ha!
So, there you have it. My little wrap up of my favorite lounge wear from Nordstrom!
