Hygge style at home and with clothing

Hello, friends….this post is about the Danish lifestyle called hygge, and how I am implementing it in home and clothing.

I told you earlier in the week that I have been “studying” the word cozy.  

Why?  Because, I desired to keep my home cozy after Christmas went away.  There are two decor styles I like and will discuss more later.

But, while looking over these design trends, I happened upon the word “hygge.”

The more I read about this Danish lifestyle…the more I thought…this is so me!

Hygge Cozy home lifestyle on over 50 feeling 40

The most informative, overall post I found on hygge is from 2017, and on this blog ELBOW ROOM.

They answer the basic questions, but I am drawn to creating a home and personal style that reflects: “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” 

The challenge for me is that I would like to create that feeling not just in the winter, but throughout the year…in a warm climate!  That is a challenge.

It is much easier now and the reason, I have kept some Christmas lights up without seasonal decorations. 

To me this is a joyful, welcoming aesthetic and one that is needed when we are home more often.  I desire to create it all year long.


Hygge Style in clothing

I do not believe hygge style means that I walk around in a faux fur outfit, or bundled up to my hairline.

For me it means, a cozy casual life where I am comfortable, confident, and joyful in what I wear.

Today’s outfit is a good way for me to say those three things and I can easily throw on a topper if I desire.

This color makes me smile…I love it!

Chico's cozy casual style in winter clothing

This Chico’s Zenergy Neema Button Front Shirt in Imperial Blue is a current favorite. I would love to own it in the Ultra Pink as well.

I work in it, relax in it, and smile in it.  The necklace is also Chico’s from a past clearance sale.

Clothing that makes me smile is my kind of hygge all year long!! I have a new slideshow below…



I really want my home to be inviting and warm all year long…so I will continue to look at lifestyles like hygge for ideas…
