Let me paint a picture of my perfect summertime sleep situation: The AC is turned up to full blast 'til my room reaches Arctic temperatures; I'm wrapped up like a burrito in a warm, fuzzy blanket while frost practically forms on my eyelashes. Ah, heaven.

And while there are plenty of cozy-yet-lightweight summer blankets out there to choose from, this season I have my sights set on the pick that everyone's favorite home-design guru Joanna Gaines has dubbed her very own "adult baby blanket." That would be none other than the famous Barefoot Dreams CozyChic throw ($145; $60), which I just found marked down for nearly 60 percent off at Nordstrom Rack in three beachy, striped colorways—just in time to refresh my bedding (and yours!) for those upcoming air-conditioned nights.

Barefoot Dreams

Gaines named the snuggly throw among her must-haves in a 2022 interview with Popsugar, and if you're a fan of Fixer Upper (or any other Chip and Joanna Gaines show), you know that she has great taste when it comes to all things homeware.

But the design star is not the only one who finds it to be top tier in terms of plush comfort. PureWow's own senior editor, Dana Dickey, penned an ode to the blanket in a PureWow 100 review, while Executive Managing Editor Catrina Yohay has raved, "It's soft, warm and stretchy, while still being incredibly lightweight. I have about ten throws stacked up in my living room just waiting to be used, but this has replaced all of them with permanent residence on my couch." It's also gotten shout-outs from the A-list likes of  Chrissy TeigenKhloé Kardashian, Hailey Bieber and Kate Hudson.

The blanket is made from a super soft polyester microfiber material that's "woven so that it breathes," as one buyer describes it, and "never gets too warm or uncomfortable," so overheating shouldn't be on the agenda. The best part, however, might be the fact that it's machine-washable, and according to reviewers, holds up wonderfully even after multiple rounds in the machine.

Now that it's majorly marked down in a selection of summery stripes (which just so happen to be trending big time RN), I can't imagine a better excuse to score the Gaines- (and PureWow editor-) approved blanket. Time to enjoy the sweetest summer dreams...for a steal.
