i once read somewhere that december is the month of shopping for others, but january is the month you shop for yourself. i'd say that statement applies to me perfectly, but i shop for myself in december too...
anyway, i'm like a moth to a flame when it comes to post-holiday sales. i thought i would share some of my favorite things i picked up!
MADEWELL BUBBLE-SLEEVE SWEATER
cute buttons and oversized sleeves? sold. this sweater is slightly cropped and i love pairing it with high-waisted jeans. i'll admit i'm glad i picked it up on sale: it pills like crazy.
okay, these were not a sale purchase, but lively's bundle deals are so good (3 bras for $75!). the bralettes–i have this one and this one–are so comfortable. i also picked up their lace strapless bra and it's hands down the best strapless bra i've ever worn. all i ask is for a strapless bra to stay in place and this one does just that.
MADEWELL MOCKNECK SWEATER
clearly i'm having a rose-colored sweater moment. this one is soft, thick-knit, and has a bit of stretch to it. this sweater has solved all of my "i don't know what to wear?!" kinda days this winter.
LEVI'S 501 SKINNY JEANS
this winter will be remembered as the winter i fell in love with levi's 501 skinny jeans. this is pair #3. sure, the first day you wear them is nothing short of torture. however, once you break them in, you and your jeans will live happily ever after.
GAP CHENILLE SWEATER
chenille has been huge this winter and you either love it or hate it. personally, it has made me super nostalgic for a sky blue chenille cardigan that i had when i was 7 (it was also from the gap!). i don't think i have ever loved an item of clothing as much as i loved that cardigan. well, almost 20 years have passed and i still have a soft spot for chenille.
