Happy Friday! I hope you all have had a great week so far. This past week has actually been a really stressful one, but I'm incredibly relaxed now that it's at its end and I'm excited for the weekend.
Today's pom pom hat is from New Chic, and it's one of my favorite new pieces. New Chic is an Asian retailer that reached out to me, and at first I was hesitant to try them out because of the bad experience I've had with Asian retailer Shein (read that story here.) However, both their PR team and customer service department are polite, proper, and very helpful. This hat is cozy, the faux fur pom pom is super soft, and it's great quality for the price (on sale right now for under $10!) You can use my code blog20off for 20% off your order.
I never really liked fair-isle sweaters up until last year, and I've been stocking up on cozy nordic knits ever since, trying to build a collection! J. Crew does a ton of great ones each season like this one and this one. I tend to prefer J. Crew and J. Crew Factory's fall/winter releases, since I feel like they are a little more true to what J. Crew used to be. I think their quality used to be much better, their size chart was a lot less confusing, and their pieces leaned towards classic with a preppy twist. I wish they would go back to their old sizing system! Today's XXXS fits like their old XS. Crazy, right?
