Splurge or Steal // Chambray Pull-over

June 13, 2012
Elizabeth & James Alex Cotton Parka – $188 (orig. $375) or Men’s Chambray Pop-over Hoodie – $75  

Today’s Splurge or Steal is the perfect representation of what I wish I were wearing on this rainy day (preferably snuggled up on the couch with tea and my puppy), but instead, I’m trying my best to look chic amidst the drizzle for a long day of meetings and events in the city. (… Meh.)

I recently purchased the “steal” you see above from the Land’s End Canvas men’s collection, and can’t wait to show you how I style it up for summer (so many ideas… with a sequined skirt, as a swim cover-up, or patterned palazzo pants!), but I think the “splurge” is just as cute (and not ridiculously expensive because it’s on sale at theOutnet.com!). 

Is it totally outrageous that I bought a men’s shirt for myself?  Please tell me I’m not the only one that ever shops in the men’s section of my favorite stores.  Which of the looks above do you prefer?

Pin It!

    OMG! I like the “steal” one better. I think it this is the first time ever that I go for the cheaper one.

    They would be a great beach cover-up.

    I love so chambray so I’m obviously obsessing over both. But, the men’s Land’s End pull over might just be a little more amazing. xx
