january shopping haul and outfit ideas

I’ve been needing an ivory cable sweater, as the ivory sweater I have is a thin material and it’s been in my closet a few years.   I’ve also been looking for a basic white button-up shirt.  I ordered one last month, but it fit too snug, so I returned it.  A couple of weeks ago I went shopping…and racked up on some deals!  I usually stick with my capsule wardrobe, wearing a few trendy pieces.  Plus, I don’t buy several pieces at a time, but the deals I found were hard to pass up!

I started my search
for an ivory cable sweater at Nordstrom Rack.  I remembered that I needed a pair of dark denim jeans to wear to work.  I found these Paige Verdugo Ultra Skinny Jeans.  Even though they are “ultra skinny”, they are a jegging material so they stretch!  I love wearing skinny jeans because they look great with almost any shoe.  While I was a Nordstrom Rack, I spotted this beautiful Melrose and Market white poplin boyfriend shirt.  I grabbed it, tried it on and voila, it fit perfectly!  I also found this Harlow & Graham Soft Gray Sweater, which is the softest material ever!  Of course Nordstrom Rack prices are hard to pass up, so I bought all three pieces.

Next, I went to J. Crew Factory.  While I didn’t find the elusive ivory cable sweater, they did have this Pink Gingham Shirt on one of their tables as soon as I walked in the door.  It’s a SO soft cotton material.  I couldn’t pass it up at 40% off.  J. Crew Factory is one of my favorite stores for wardrobe essentials.  If you aren’t signed up for their emails, I highly recommend doing so.  They have some great sales and they’ll let you know when they have all their sales.  I love J. Crew’s clothes too.  They are more expensive, but it’s another go-to store for wardrobe staples that last for years.

My final stop was Gap Factory.  I found the ivory sweater I was looking for.  It’s not a “cable” style, but it’s similar.  I found a beautiful cable sweater online, the link is below.  It fits perfectly too, just right for layering.  While I was there, I found a pair of burgundy jeans and a “Oui Oui” graphic tee.  I’ve had my American Eagle burgundy jeans for several years and they were fading from wearing them so much, I replaced them with the Gap Factory burgundy jeans.  I couldn’t find them online, so here’s a similar pair.  I can’t find the graphic tee online, maybe it’s a Gap Factory exclusive?  Check your local Factory store.
