2013 Black Friday Style: No-Sweat Sweater Shopping!


In my day-and-a-half blog-athon quest, my first post is featuring the must-have item of the season- a sweater! Of course, you can wear something really basic & dress it up with fabulous accessories, but sweaters are one of those items that you just need to have each season. I’ve been hearing so much about all of the big Black Friday deals, so I’m starting off with these four sweaters that have caught my attention on the web!

Dress Barn - V-Neck Sweater $19.99, The Limited - Heart Sweater $59.95, Old Navy - Mock Turtleneck Sweater $30.00, & New York & Company - Striped Sweater $25.00.

Here are the details on each sweater: roz & ALI cashmiracle v-neck sweater ($19.99) in fuchsia @Dress Barn, Intarsia heart sweater ($59.95– 50% off with code THANKS) in blue @The Limited, mock turtleneck sweater ($30.00) in black combo @Old Navy, & Waverly v-neck striped sweater ($25.00) in cherry blossom @New York & Company.

Sweaters are the perfect separate to mix & match with basics for any occasion, like skinny jeans, trouser pants, a pencil skirt, or leggings (if it’s a tunic sweater, that is). Also, try accessorizing with knee boots, a crossbody bag, & a long chain link necklace for a trendy casual look. What kind of sweaters do you shop for? Which stores do you think have the best holiday sales on sweaters this weekend?

Quickie Darling Deal & Steal: No-Sweat Sale Prices on Sweaters @LOFT!


Thankfully, the weather in New York has been pretty mild this winter, but I know I’m a little sad since I haven’t been able to go all-out winterized with my wardrobe.  However, the bright side is that some of my favorite stores has really amazing & classic sweaters on sale now, especially since they’re clearing out their racks in preparation for spring.

Right now @LOFT, there are some especially affordable deals on clearance items for women, petites, maternity apparel, & accessories. I picked out these 3 cozy sweaters that caught my eye & are perfect for pairing with dark wash skinny jeans & riding boots- just a suggestion!

The cowl neck long sleeve sweater ($12.88), my favorite of the trio, is available in black, camel, gray, & cream. The shoulder zip cable knit sweater ($12.88) is perfect for layering over a tee, tank, or with this season’s best trend: boldly colored jeans!  If you’re a fan of stripes, then check out the very Americana stripe cozy cable v-neck sweater ($12.88) for a weekend getaway ski trip or B&B runaway.
