what i wore 1.25.12

I wore this on a busy day of errands, meetings and taking the kids to Chuck E. Cheese (gag). It was raining really hard, so I wanted to be warm and comfy. I just picked up this sweater at Old Navy – it was on super clearance and an additional 30% off, so it ended up being like $7. The necklace was also on clearance for $3. I loved the warm colors and that its bold, but not bulky.

jeans: the skinny by 7 for all mankind {buy here – on sale!!}
boots: amazing deal on 6pm last year {similar here}
necklace: old navy {similar here}

I’ve been dying to try a denim on denim look with a chambray shirt… but worried about looking either too 1987 or too country. So I paired my shirt with dark trouser jeans, heels and piled on the jewelry. What do you think?

You may have noticed I have been drooling over a certain sweater from Free People. Since I mentioned it here. And here. And here. Well, it just showed up on Gilt. For like half off! That’s what you call Christmas money well spent right there. The necklace is the same one in the picture above – it has a removable locket, which I just love!
