After the long holiday weekend, it's back to the work grind. I hope you all enjoyed the family time and endless amounts of turkey and apple pies. It was so nice to be back at home in the suburbs. I almost didn't return to the city...almost. Over the weekend, I spent a decent amount of time deal-searching with my mom. We didn't participate in the Black Friday madness, but we DID go shopping on Saturday and we scored some wallet-friendly deals in every store. Who needs to shop on Black Friday when the specials last all weekend? It's a marathon, not a sprint people!
During this time of year, it's important to shop for quality and worthwhile pieces. It's better to invest in these pieces now while all the sales are still going on. I typically look for items that are transitional. This time of year is extremely unpredictable. One minute there's six inches of snow on the ground, the next minute it's 65 degrees outside. As the temperature begins to steadily decline, you'll want to have these items in your closet: riding boots, ankle booties, oversized scarves, a parka, a blanket poncho, and a few fun knit sweaters. The open-back knit sweater featured above by Charlotte Russe is one of the newest additions to my closet. I'll be wearing it on repeat this season with a variation of statement necklaces and dainty jewelry- like these adorable sapphire stud earrings & long layering necklace from Pink Slate Boutique.
Chunky knits are great investment pieces for your winter wardrobe because they add texture and create depth to any look. Plus, they pair strikingly well with ankle booties. Can we talk about how adorable these Kelly & Katie booties are from DSW? Can't wait to wear them to upcoming holiday parties!
