Hi. I am Elizabeth. 

Welcome to my blog. I use this little space to chronicle the adventures of the Noel family!

Staying Warm in these Freezing Temps


Hello all! I hope you are all staying warm. This cold front is nuts!

I thought since the temps are currently frigid, I would share some of my favorite recent purchases. They are all comfy and feel like Pjs, but keep this momma looking put together. Many of them are also less expensive versions of some more expensive items. I mean, I am not paying full or designer prices in order to be spit on or covered in small people’s food.

Target sweater- I am obsessed with this sweater. It is so comfy. It can be dressed up or down, and it’s not itchy at all. I think I wear this at least once a week. The colors are perfect too. I really love the gold thread that runs through it.

Assets Faux Leather Leggings- So I know you have heard about the amazing Spanx leggings, right? I was wanting to get a pair, but at this point in my life and trying to stay within a budget- I decided to try the Assets (by Spanx) leggings from target. And I love them- I never tried on the fancy ones so I can’t tell you the differences. I know that the Spanx leggings are the  faux leather all over, and the Assets leggings are faux leather on the front and a pointe material on the back. They are warm, and comfy and cute- so I love them.

Free People Sweatshirt- Now this is an item I splurged on. It had been on my wishlist for over 6 months and I happened to walk into the free people store when Bryan and I were on a date. aAnd the rest, as they say, is history. It is thick and cozy. It is long enough to wear with leggings. It can be dressed up or down. It can be worn on or off the shoulder. It’s just amazing.

Fuzzy Loafers- Again, I chose the knock off of the very expensive shoe- but I know that shoes lined with fur are not going to be in style forever, so I don’t want to spend the money- but for now, I am loving these and they are so warm! If you get these- size up a half size.

Old Navy Buffalo Check Sweater- I love all things buffalo check! I was unsure of this sweater because it is fuzzy, and I was afraid it would shed. It was 40% off, so I ordered it, and was pleasantly surprised that it doesn’t shed at all. I can wear it over a white shirt and have no red fuzz anywhere. I love the length of this cardigan as well. I have worn it over jeans and dresses and it looks darling either way. (Unfortunately, the Old Navy Cardigan is sold out, but I found this one that is similar on modcloth!)


I would love to hear of any winter budget friendly finds that you love! I am always looking to add to my mommy uniform of sweaters, jeans, tees, leggings and comfy shoes! 

Until next time...
