Banana Republic Chevron Striped Sweater

One of my favorite buys from last weekend's shopping spree is a simple black & white, chevron-striped cardigan from Banana Republic. I wore my new sweater to work last week, then switched out my black skirt for skinny jeans to go shopping w/ hubby.


I also got this large, floppy hat from BR during my spree. At $16 after sale price and reward points, I couldn't just leave it there!


I don't think I'll actually wear this hat with either of these outfits, but I had fun playing around with the hat for the photos. I also am not loving those boots paired with that sweater. I just wore them b/c it was raining outside. When I tried the sweater on at BR, I was wearing my BR jeans and simple black pumps and I like that look muuuuuch better.

Either way, I am loving this stripey sweater! This was a good buy at $40.99 - I'm sure to get tons of use out of it whether for work or play!

Have you found any good buys in the Christmas sales?

I found men's long sleeve thermal tee shirts at Old Navy for $5.00 each! What a steal! My hubby grabbed one in every color and I liked the weight of the material better than the women's thermal tees, so I bought a few for myself. They come in great colors and are color-blocked. I think the sale was only for one day (Saturday) though. But I think I like your bargains better - especially the hat!!

Ooh, Wendy, that sounds super chic!

Thanks Fashion Therapist!

Oh no...not me!!! You've been doing so well with your budget and stuff...although, perhaps you're due a good reward for all that hard work, eh?

Marie - sounds like you guys got some great deals! I love layering shirts and I like to stock up on them from Gap...I always forget about Old Navy! Too bad it's over, though I may swing by this w/e just to double-check...haha.
