The day I moved into my new NYC apartment, it was approximately 10°F outside. Consequently, whoever controls my building’s heating must have decided that to combat the cold, it would be best to boil all the tenants alive. I spent those first couple weeks sweating indoors, thankful to have my lightweight Parachute bed blanket to keep me covered but not sweltering during the nights. Another bed blanket, this one from Macy’s, stayed unopened and stowed away in my closet. Then one morning, I woke up shivering and shocked over the unexpected drop in temperature. Desperate for warmth, I flung open my closet door, grabbed the Macy’s throw, and tore through the packaging. After laying out my Lauren Ralph Lauren micromink plush blanket, I can say it hasn’t left my bed since. What’s more, I’d seriously recommend this all-season bedding essential to everyone for a number of reasons, the first one being that it’s currently 45 percent off!

You might not choose to keep this ultra-soft blanket on your bed, like I do. Instead, it would also make a great sofa throw — one that movie night guests would fight over, no doubt! It comes in five classic colors, so you can choose the one that best matches your space. What I enjoy most about this covering, though, is that it’s warm and cozy without being heavy. I have no desire to invest in an overstuffed comforter because it would take up too much space in my room when not in use, so this micromink number is the perfect alternative. It’s also plush like a stuffed animal; I keep it under both my Parachute blanket and top sheet simply because I love how it feels against my skin.

If you thought I only use this blanket when I sleep, you thought wrong. Like I said, my room is usually freezing when I wake up in the morning. As a result, I drag the covering off my bed and wrap myself in it while I sit at my vanity. I drink my coffee and do my makeup, and it’s honestly bliss! I’m always reluctant to leave my cocoon afterward. And I have to say, as someone who’s not a big fan of loud prints and colors, I love the simple look of this Lauren Ralph Lauren piece. It’s clean in design, save for a sizable brand monogram at the bottom edge, which is quite bougie. In essence, this is my comfort blanket, and I don’t see myself parting with it anytime soon. If I were you, I’d run to get it, especially now that it’s just $25.
