Can you guys believe we are already halfway through January!? January is always a month of mixed emotions for me. I can’t help but be sad that the holidays are over and that I have to take down my Christmas tree and put away my lights. On the other hand, I always feel excited to begin a new year! I feel like everyone is always a little more inspired in the month of January. Positive vibes, new mantras and motivating personal motto’s fill my news feeds, while people I’ve never seen before fill my gym! Hehe

The one thing that seems like it’s always trying to bring us down from our “New Year, New You” high? The weather! It’s usually pretty grim here in the Midwest, and if we’re not careful, the gloomy cold days can really put a damper on our moods. Not today Chiberia! Today I am combating this depressing January climate by stocking my closet with the softest sweaters on the market. It seems only necessary that I share my favorites from this season with you all!

The sweater I’m wearing is from Zara, but isn’t available online anymore (sad face) so check your local store to find it. I did however find this one with adorable bell sleeves which are super on trend right now! The pale pink color would be perfect for Valentine’s Day AND the soft fabric is perfect for snuggling up on a date.

This fleece one by Gibson at Nordstrom is SUPER comfortable, is only $44 bucks and it comes in Petite sizes too! I have it in Navy, but it also comes in Grey and Black too. The twist front gives a fun little detail while helping to create a waist for you.

This open cardigan option is also from Nordstrom (Regular and Petite sizes) and comes in 3 colors. It has the most adorable peplum detail in the back, making this Bobeau soft sweater one of my favorites to throw over any basic tee or tank. PS It’s currently 30% off!

Express has some SUPER soft and cozy options this season too (and they are having a 40% off sale right now). This one has the cut out shoulder detail and comes in an striking red plaid. The style of this sweater is a little shorter, but don’t size up because it ends up just looking too big and boxy (trust me I tried it haha). Instead just stick with your usual size and style it with high waisted denim or throw a tank/bodysuit under it!

This one from Express is by far one of the softest options listed. However, it comes with a disclaimer: it sheds more than my dog. Keep a lint roller nearby, this lace-up sweater requires that you do (totally worth it though if you ask me)!

Here is a v-neck option in Navy, Cream and Baby Blue. The Navy is a little brighter than traditional Navy, but it really is gorgeous. This amazingly soft sweater is only $19.90 woot woot!

The cheapest one on my list is from SheIn and is only $9.99! It is a “one size fits all” so make sure you check out their sizing guide!

And there you have it folks- the softest sweaters you can buy right now to help you survive the winter blues!! Happy shopping ladies. Oh, and one more thing, let’s try to keep all those positive vibes and motivating mantras going until the end of the year shall we? I promise it will make for a much better 2017!
