Splurge or Steal // Colorblocked Sweaters

November 22, 2011

i have a confession to make: my wardrobe this past week has been much more cozy-knit sweaters than sparkles and feathers.  we packed up all of our belongings over the weekend, and the movers came by last night to load it all into a truck and head to our new home in hoboken just a few days ahead of us.

when i was trying to decide what few key pieces i wanted to keep out until we’re reunited with our clothes, i found that i kept reaching for comfy sweaters in bright colors, leggings & flat boots (plus a dressier look for thanksgiving, natch).

i love that the color blocking trend has extended beyond a season of dresses and summerwear, and so many sweaters can now be found in the fun geometric print, as well.  there are of course, some gorgeous options at a pretty steep price tag, so i thought i’d try and find a steal option for you in case you’re interested in joining the “block party” for less of an investment. :)

    Usually I am ALL for the splurge … but I actually like to steal this time. (I can’t believe I just wrote that!!)

    I love your post! Such a great idea to use those steals. I found that sweater at Old Navy and it looked just like one I saw at Macy’s…only $50 cheaper!

    I’ve been reading fashion blogs for a little over a year, and I finally mustered up the courage to start my own style blog a couple of months ago, and it’s just getting off the ground. If you want to check it out, it would mean the world to me.

    I stopped posting in it for a while because I got discouraged. Then I went back to a couple of years ago when you posted your very first few outfits and I became re-inspired. Thank you for that :)

    my blog url is http://www.livingincolor.blogs…. please, if you any advice, comments or criticisms, let me know! I’m open to all!!!
