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.

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! 🙂

Poncho

I picked up this Ann Taylor Factory Poncho at the outlet last weekend. My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw it because it is very similar to a poncho I’ve had my eye on at Club Monaco for the last year or so. Although the Club Monaco version is made of cashmere, it’s a hefty $495!

This ATF poncho I picked up for a fraction of the price at $35 after discounts (regular price ~$79).  I actually like the ATF poncho better, despite not being made of cashmere, it has a high neck and each side opening has two-zippers  so I can zip the poncho closed and allow just small openings for my arms, or let the bottom or the poncho be left unzipped so it can be worn as a cape as I’m wearing it below.  Obsessed.

I know we’ve all been seeing posts about the sales lately, but I thought that I would mention at the very last second that Neiman Marcus has a $50 off $200 purchased code available until tonight using: INC50. It appears to applies to just about everything except beauty and jewelry, including the Alexander Wang Gabi boots I’m wearing above, so it’s a great time to finally buy that designed bag or shoes you’ve been stalking for even just the slightest discount that you might not get otherwise. Nordstrom will also price match if you are looking to make multiple purchases, since the Neiman Marcus code only works once per customer. I may take advantage of this code myself pick up these and these to try on.

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!
