As you may have noticed, I been rather quiet lately. While I finally purchased a new camera to replace the old one that failed to turn on one day, the month of December proved to be too much for me to be able to balance the day job with pretty much anything else in life.
I admit, 2016 started rather slowly, and I was falling into that rut that I seem to be all too familiar with. However, by the end of the year, despite being super busy and super tired, I’m feeling pretty optimistic and looking forward to what 2017 brings.
My one aspiration for the new year? Just, do better. At everything. Including this blog. So on that note, I hope everyone has a healthy and happy 2017!
I had been searching for a good quality cozy, off-the-shoulder sweater for a few months and I finally fount it in this AQUA cashmere sweater. I was a bit apprehensive trying it, because basically all kinds of wool makes me itch, but I had absolutely no problems with this. It is tunic length on me, but a little tucking in of the hem gives it a different look. Right now, this sweater is 25% off at Bloomingdales. It’s still rather pricey, but If you are looking for an off the shoulder sweater that isn’t made of acrylic or an itchy wool material, I absolutely recommend this.
Also a note about my most recent absence from the blog. While work has gotten [a lot more] chaotic, my camera recently turned into a brick, so I’m without a camera for the next little while until I can get a replacement–hopefully sooner rather than later! For now, I’ll have to dig into the archives and see what I can come up with.
Headed out to the pub this weekend for something a bit different. No, you are not seeing double. If you recall, I do have this exact same jacket in blue (see post here). I was looking for a grey suede jacket that didn’t break the bank and when I came across this one by BlankNYC I couldn’t hit the “purchase” button fast enough. Unfortunately, they are sold out in the grey, but they do have it in stock in this amazing burgundy color.
Bloomingdale’s is having their Friends & Family sale and you can grab this amazing suede jacket with an extra 25% off on $198 (use code: FRIENDS). For a suede jacket with that has a good amount of weight to it, this is a really great price and I highly recommend it.
The sleeveless turtleneck tunic I’m wearing under the jacket is made by Ann Taylor. I was fully expecting to return this, but was really surprised at how flattering it was. I took my regular AT size, XSP. It is also currently on sale with an extra 30% off at checkout.
Other notable sales include Theory which is also having there F&F sale. Use code FRIENDS for 25% off. They also offer free shipping and returns if you are unsure about sizing. I’m really loving the this trench coat, and while I’m not normally about ruffles, I really order this blouse.
