Navy blue sweater

I recently picked up my first ever navy blue sweater and I have no idea what took me so long. I am obsessed. It somehow gives this “cool girl” look while not being black, or grey for that matter. And the best part, because it’s a neutral, it pretty much goes with everything.

Boyfriend Coat + Navy Blue Sweater + Destructed Denim + Moto Boots Theory Tollie Cashmere Sweater / Zara Ripped Denim (love these by Paige)/ Rag & Bone Moto Boots / 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute Medium Clutch / Banana Republic Gray Long Peacoat / Forever21 Rings / Club Monaco Striped T-shirt (love this)

This particular cashmere sweater is made by Theory. I picked it up at TJ Maxx on one of my recent trips back to D.C., but there may be a few available online. So far I am impressed with the quality of this sweater and if it continues to hold up the way it is, I will definitely be looking to pick up more cashmere by Theory in the future. For something similar at a lower price point, I suggest the J.Crew Relaxed Merino Wool Sweater which is currently on sale for an extra 25% off from $89.50 with code GOSHOPPING. I generally prefer merino wool over cotton and cashmere, though it can be itchy for us that are sensitive, it is least prone to pilling in my experience. I always swear a cotton layer underneath to provide a barrier between my skin and the sweater.

And because it is that time of year, we can’t forget the notable sales that are going on right now:

Sephora: This sale always breaks my bank. For Rouge members 20% early access ends tomorrow (November 9th). Use code ROUGE20. But we will be able to get the VIB discount again if we missed something starting on the 13th (until the 16th) with code VIB20.

Bloomingdale’s: Friends and Family Sale started today with 25% most items. Use code HOLIDAY. I picked up these oxfords and I can’t wait to see them.

Banana Republic: 50% off up to 5 regular price items for “Family and Friends”. It is actually a unique code found in your email. If you haven’t seen yours, I suggest searching your inbox. Plus 40% off sale items with code BRSALE, or BRCSALE for those of us in Canada. I finally picked up the sister to the coat I am wearing above.

LOFT: Although I’m generally not a huge LOFT fan, they do have a few items right now that have been leaning towards my tomboy-ish style. They are having an extra 60% off sale and some newer items are marked down by either 50% or down to $35. A few  things I picked up:

Nordstrom: Is having their fall clearance sale. I’m contemplating these jeans, since I never have enough denim.

Happy shopping! I know I will! 🙂

Lace-up

I really tried to resist buying these lace-up flats, but alas, I couldn’t help myself. I actually used to have a pair of lace-up wedge sandals years ago. Let me tell you, they were HOT. But not the most practical to walk in. They were basically for sitting and standing still. These Zara flats are a bit better. They are TTS and do require some breaking in, but they aren’t bad and are made of leather, which is basically a requirement if I’m going to buy a pair of shoes. DRESSED ACCORDINGLY BLOG // White leather vest + Blush tea + ripped denim + lace-up flatsZara tie-up flats / Genetic Shya Denim / TNA tee (similar)/ Club Monaco Leather Vest / Michael Kors Runway watch / Aldo rings

Summer Knits

I love the idea of summer knits, though, not always so practical when you live in a hot and humid climate. To some, I may be fortunate to be able to wear these summer-weight sweaters (I think I’m still on the fence, but I do like that fact that I can still wear full-length denim in the summer now that I’m living back home in Toronto).

I wanted to post about this Wilfred Balzac sweater because I’m in love with it and many of the colors are on sale. It has a nice drapey fit with a dolman sleeve without being overwhelming on my petite frame. It is a cashmere/silk blend and not itchy at all for those of you that are sensitive to wool. Note however, that it runs on the large side. I actually went down one size for a not-too-oversized fit. I see only a small selection online, but you may find many more colors in your local store. I believe I counted five different colors including orange and lavender. The prices range from $45 on sale to $95 full price, and vary according to color. I think I may pick up another in Milk!
