Contrary to popular belief, Hawaii does get cold during the winter months, in fact – some of our islands even experience a little bit of snow fall.  While you can find me bundled under a heavy comforter most of the year since we live on a mountain, my sons and husband are quite the Eskimos and normally love the cool, crisp air.  This year however, we have been experiencing mid to high 50s which is not the normal for us and because of this, keeping warm is essential for my household, especially in the early morning when the boys are off to school.  A favorite for my family are Hanes Fleece jackets and hoodies.  They are comfy, easy to throw on and light weight to allow for layering so my guys are warm, but not hot.

Kevin, Luke and Isaiah love a jacket that will keep them warm in this cozy cuddly weather, but not make them too hot.  With a fun graphic design, hood and zipper that moves easily, the boys love their hoodies over a heavy jacket and the Hanes hoodies and crew sweatshirts are warm without being too bulky.

Having active little ones means they need to be able to move freely and these are awesome for that.  This is quite possibly the boys favorite item to throw on in the morning while on their way to school because it’s so comfy.

I love that Hanes sweatshirts are great looking and are comfortable wardrobe staples for my entire family.  Whether out running errands or just lounging around the house, these sweatshirts are so cozy.  Most importantly I find that I can find a sweatshirt or hoodie to match my fashion sense, available in basic colors like grey, black and blue but also bright shades like pink, orange and green.  You don’t have to have just the basic heather grey shades any more and the colors all look great after washing.  Check out that blue in the photo above, no fading and absolutely awesome color after a wash and dry.

Since my days normally consist of errands or mommy duties, it is absolutely essential that I am able to wear clothes that will keep me warm but allow me to be agile.  But these are also favorites of our family to lounge around the house and keep warm.  Since the weather has been chilly, this is great for just hanging out in the yard and spending family time with one another.

The perfect addiction for keeping warm while on a Starbucks run – I love that throwing on a Hanes fleece sweater or hoodie is fast, fun and still stylish.  To embrace my girly side, I can throw on a pink sweater and still have a little dressy flare.

Lightweight, but still soft after many washes – these are the perfect addition for any person or family to keep warm without overheating.  Hanes fleece sweaters and hoodies are definitely perfect for warm weather climates that are experiencing a chill during the Winter months or those looking to layer their warm clothes for the cold season.

These make simple fashion statements but I love that they are just so simple to throw on.  If you are a fitness lover, you will surely love these to put on right after a work out to keep your muscles warm.  Check out the styles and colors available at and at mass retailers near you.

How do you and your family members stay warm during the colder months?  Are you a Hanes lover too?

  1. Yess!! Fleece Is the best. I avoid washing new sweatshirts because that softness is so niiiice 🙂 Lovely family you have, Honey 🙂

    • Yes, Fleece is awesome! I wish I didn’t have to wash them as much here… but I always have a weird feeling about using anything without washing. I am happy these remained soft after the wash and dry. Thanks Liesl – I love my family <3

  2. Omg I need all the sweatshirts and jackets for my family! It’s been chilly lately, and playing outside in brisk breezy weather feels even colder.

    • Girl, they are so comfy and totally affordable. It’s been chilly here too, I’m pretty amazed. I’ve been sitting in a hoodie or sweatshirt all week without feeling hot.

    I love this post, and you and your beautiful family look so cozy and warm! I need some sweatshirts to wear around the house because it is getting cold here in LA as well. In fact, contrary to popular belief it isn’t sunny every day, and it is raining as I am typing this!
