winter sweater

A cozy sweater, omelet and carrot cake pancake, can you think of a better combination on a chilly Monday morning?   January and February are the best months for sweater shopping.  Retailers are starting to get spring styles in so fall and winter sweaters are marked down 50-70% off the regular price. I usually purchase classic styles like basic cardigans and turtlenecks that I know will still be on trend for the next season.

Outfit details:

  • Black and white cardigan sweater / Khols / 10.00 (purchased last February)
  • Black turtleneck sweater / banana republic

We finally got decent weather this past Saturday, I mean really decent, like 69 degrees and sunshine in the winter decent.  So what do I do?  I decide to kill two birds with one stone.  It was a perfect day to take the kids to the park and a perfect picture day.  The stares I got when I walked on the playground in my leopard heels were hilarious!  To be honest I wore my Nike’s and put on the heels when it was time to pose.  My little photographer is so accommodating, she managed to pull herself away from the swings to take a photo of her mom.  You can’t pay for better service anywhere!!!!

  • Cold shoulder sweater / Zara / 26.00
  • Long and Lean Jeans / Gap
  • Leopard Pumps / Gianni Bini

You see them everywhere now, in the latest fashion magazine’s, lining store shelves, on all the major style blogs….”the rain boot”.    What better way to bring some color and light into a dreary rainy day but with a splash of shiny color on your feet.  Not only do they keep your feet dry but a lot of the brands nowadays come already lined so they provide some comfort also.  I remember a time when you wouldn’t be caught dead wearing galoshes (that name doesn’t actually sound like anything I would want to wear) now they are a fashion staple.    They range in colors from candy apple red to robin’s egg blue and the prints you can find are endless.  Of course since I’m a bargain shopper, I’m going to do a little research before I guy out and pay over $100.00 bucks for a pair.  Brands like Ugg and Coach Outlet run sales throughout the year where you can get an additional percentage off.  If you just don’t care about them being designer you can find really cute one’s at Kohl’s and Target for less than $40.00.  Below are a few of my favorites under $50.00!
