Besides having my best friends living directly above me, one of the biggest things I miss about my sorority house was the epic coziness of it. The way I had my dorm room set up, my bed was a little nest in and of itself, but on a much bigger scale it was so nice knowing that whatever garbage weather New Jersey was throwing at us (and my school was build on a swamp), I could come in, strip down, put on something warm, and roam the halls in my comfy clothes knowing that I could take a nap just about anywhere. Rarely it was in my own room, to be honest. When you live with a few dozen girls, someone somewhere is watching a movie you can fall asleep to, since nobody got enough sleep the night before.

I specifically remember one night, and this is so random, that my sorority sister Joanne walked in after a date with her boyfriend. I was in the front stairs in a pink Rider hoodie and grey sweatpants and she was totally dolled up. She looked at me and was like, “I want to be wearing that. You looks like a marshmallow. Like you would bounce if you hit the ground.” I don’t know WHY I remember this, but I wear this combo of coze clothes to this day and I always think of it as my marshmallow outfit. Somehow that baby pink is so comforting. Who’s curling up in something pink and soft this weekend?

Contrary to one of my favorite sweaters, and this may be an unpopular opinion here, but I’d rather be cold than hot. Cold = more cuddles, more blankets, more lovely layers (perhaps in a nice plaid?). When I’m hot, I’m cranky- and don’t let me get hot, hungry, and sleepy at the same time or else. Granted, I don’t like it too cold, but I can deal. Some people in my life, not so much.

Fixing the side effects from the cold does not just mean warming up. A winter chill can dry out the skin and ruin your mood. If you have friends or family who would rather spend winters where the sun always shines, help them flip it around to enjoy what I like to think of as “snuggle season”. Think gifts to keep cozy: comforting scents, soft textures, skin soothers.

Personally, I love curling up with a cup of coffee, candles lit all over the apartment, and tree decorated to watch a favorite movie. What’s your favorite way to keep warm when it’s chilly?

In case you haven’t noticed, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is kind of like Black Friday for bloggers. We wait for this for a year, strategically plan for certain deals, and share our hauls. In case you don’t understand how the sale works- I’m going to defer you to Ashlee, who did an amazing post on everything you need to know about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Last year, I was pretty unimpressed, honestly. This year, however, I found a bunch of things I love. I don’t really need anything per say, so I didn’t have a strategy. I went page by page to check out literally everything the sale has to offer. True to Caroline form, I love the relaxed, the distressed, and the cold-shouldered. Threw in a couple funky pieces to keep my readers on their toes. Oh hey rose gold hat. How you doin’?

Remember that the items included in this sale tend to go fast, so if you see something you love, grab it. Also of note- my picks are in price order and everything you see here is under $150!

Up until last year, I was a total princess brat about my birthday. With my Year Of Weddings, I just didn’t have the energy and I tried to skip it all together. Even so, I ended up with a low-key bottomless pizza brunch with some of my closest pals and a v silly trip to Mission and Mad Hatter.

It’s no secret that I have a deep and unending love for Mission’s happy hour. Since my birthday is the day before St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to go grab a drink there on the 17th to celebrate. A couple pitchers and a chorizo quesadilla later, we thought it would be brilliant to head down the block and split a Mad Hatter hat full o’ alcohol. I ended up wishing everyone a very happy Patrick De Queso and now I want to make it a tradition to head to my favorite Mexican spot on/ around my birthday/ St. Patrick’s Day. Makes sense, huh? Whatever.

This year, Mission and I are sharing a birthday party on the 16th. I’ll be working all day because it’s, like, on a Thursday, so no uber-cute St. Patrick’s Day gear for me. But if you’re doing something fun that weekend you probably need a fun top or a little something green so you don’t get pinched.

My 27th year has been my best one yet. The way it started honestly set me up the right way- an endless pizza brunch with my closest friends and my new boyfriend, followed by taking that new boyfriend home for Easter to meet my folks- everyone loved him. The boyfriend became the roommate in my sunny new apartment in September in a weirdly seamless transition. Then my roommate proposed to me on stage with my favorite band.

While Kendall has been a huge reason that this year has been so fantastic, I’ve made a lot of personal gains as well. It started with Dani, truly, and her organization of Bubbles & Bloggers. Without the network she started cultivating, I don’t know that I would have had to guts to relaunch my blog. I certainly wouldn’t have the main squad I run with in DC. I am forever thankful for my new friends. I am braver and more confident than I have ever been.

Speaking of friends, my 27th year also saw 3 of my oldest friends marry the loves of their respective lives. April, May, and June were a collective whirlwind of love and celebration.

Of course this year wasn’t all peaches ‘n’ cream, but the hard stuff that life always comes with makes the sweet stuff even better. As always, a huge thank you to my my parents for always being there when I need to come home, symbolically and literally.

My mom and Kendall have asked me what I want for my birthday. Honestly, I just kind of want to go to Mission for their own birthday celebration– yes I am twins with my favorite HH in the city- and celebrate with whoever is around and wants to join. I don’t need anything- I feel like I have it all! But since I’ve been making monthly wish lists anyway-basically craving all things soft + pastel, with a dash of… statement earrings? The funny thing is that I rarely wear earrings but I have been so drawn to several funky pairs recently.
