Stay Warm...

It's warm here in Northern California, but my parents just arrived back in Chicago from sunnier climes to a balmy -6 degrees. Yes, you read that correctly. Now, if you absolutely have to go outside in that weather, what the heck do you wear?

I bought a sweater at Banana Republic a couple of weeks ago, it was marked down and down again so I thought it was a good buy, however after two wearings it looks old and ratty. That is terrible, I don't care how cheap something is, it is not worth it if it doesn't last at least a season. Then I found this sweater at Brooks Brothers, also on sale, but made to last...

Merino Ribbed Turtleneck Sweater


It looks very stuffy and boring in this picture, but imagine it with skinny jeans and boots, then it's fantastic. Or trouser jeans and gold heels, also fantastic. For work with light grey wool flannel wide leg pants, woooo.

These would be great jeans...



I also love these Rich and Skinny Jeans - but NOT with the sweater above,



The buttons along with the buttons on the sweater would be way too much, but these jeans with a simple top would be great - and they are on sale at eluxury which means another 20% off sale merchandise - plus

eLUXURY

Happy Shopping!

i was inspired to check out the jeans above (not the button ones) and was disappointed that they are no longer in stock.

Alison - if you poke around on the site the same style (J Brand Lovestory) is available - on sale also - in another color, Stenson wash. They look great!
