A friend and I once had a conversation about sleeping positions. He asked me if I preferred comfy over cozy and I said I believed that you could do both at the same time. When I was trying to think of a way to describe this outfit I had to think back to our conversation and the whole comfy versus cozy debate. This outfit is the best of both worlds: sweatpants are the epitome of comfort while the oversized bernadette cardigan is the ultimate cozy piece in my wardrobe. Add comfy All-Star classics and you get the ideal outfit for an afternoon study session in the library.
I’ve been commuting to my old uni campus everyday for the last three months to write on my thesis. Being alone in the apartment while K is off to work really wasn’t something for me. Two weeks into our new life in our own apartment and I was going mad. I need people. I need a break between my home and my (thesis) work. Going to the campus library 1,5 hours away really helps me to have a routine and stay active while in that odd phase between school and my first job. Two of my old class mates are currently working on their thesis as well and they keep me company in the library. Our study sessions are filled with whispered chats and annoying the others in the room. Sometimes we go out for coffee and we always lunch in the campus restaurant. It’s almost like I am still a student, only I never have to go to class. I see my professors and a lot of the same old faces. Nothing has changed, yet everything is different. And I’m not sure how I actually feel about all that.
Life changes are scary.

Need them fancy sweatpants! Dit wordt sowieso m’n dagelijkse outfit (ofja, mijn eigen versie ervan) als ik alleen woon!

Ouh Nikki, je ziet er fantastisch uit! Echt keihard fan van deze <3
It is so difficult to get accustomed to life changes, whether they occur for the better or worse…completely empathize!
And I’m reading this post while procrastinating studying myself and I have to say, I think you nailed the library look which, of course, must be comfy and cozy!!! I mean, all libraries are always freezing!

aaaah looove! Het ziet er zo comfy uit, da ik het nu gewoon wil dragen, in mijn luie zetel, zalig!

Comfy and cozy are the best! I’m definitely all about comfort, especially at home when I’m lounging around reading and watching TV!
That does look like a comfy and cosy outfit! I agree, it’s definitely possible to be both and the outfits that let you do that are always the best to wear! 🙂
It’s good you can still go back to your uni and connect with friends while working on your thesis – I think I’d go crazy stuck at home working on something like that too. I wouldn’t know though, don’t have the patience or skills to attempt such a feat, haha!

Dat zijn zowat de mooiste sweatpants die ik ooit zag! En prachtig gecombineerd ook. Ik ben eigenlijk direct gaan werken toen ik afstudeerde, maar ik mis het studentenleven soms wel héél hard! 🙂 Die onverwachte koffiepauzes en dagen van absoluut zinloze activiteiten mogen nog wel eens terugkomen.. 🙂
Succes nog met je theses, het is hard labeur. I know 🙂

What a good way to put it! Being back on your college campus without actually still being a student. I’ve visited my old college several times but always during the weekends or during times when school wasn’t in session. I bet it’s fun to be there by choice instead of needing to go to class! This outfit looks very cozy indeed!
True that. Scary as hell. Maar ook wel leuk. Enfin, alleszins veel succes met de thesis! De laatste loodjes wegen het zwaarst, zeker in combinatie met zoveel verandering, maar je komt er wel. 😉
Love the sweatpants trouwens! Wil ik al jaaaren maar ik lijk de stap maar niet te zetten ^^

Good for finding some people to be with as you work (and take breaks from work). I find that one of the hardest parts of working from home, even if one is pretty introverted.
This outfit is totally both comfy and cozy (though, I feel like if something is cozy, it is, by definition, also comfy. Maybe that is just me…) and chic and effortless too.
Succes met je thesis! De outfit straalt één en al comfy uit!
