Sweater Expert

I know there is technically no official title of ‘Sweater Expert’, but if there were I would definitely be in contention for that crown.  I have tried sweaters from all over- online shops, brick and mortar stores; high end and low end- searching for the ones that will get me through the miserably cold New England winter.  After such an elaborate search over the past few years, I can say with complete confidence that GAP Inc. brands make my favorite and most reliable sweaters across the board- I know that I can walk into an Old Navy, GAP, or Banana Republic store and be 100% satisfied with their sweater selection at any given time.  I recently wore some of my favorites on the blog here and here!  When I walked into Banana Republic and saw these turtlenecks displayed on the front table, the only question I had was which color to buy it in.  Orange, my favorite color, ultimately won out- but it was definitely a close race!

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing some holiday inspired outfits that began at T.J.Maxx!  Their stores are absolutely stocked up right now for the holidays, and have pieces for every type of holiday gathering.  TJX brands have always been a great place to score designer pieces at affordable prices, but I have to say I was so impressed with their holiday selection this year.  As someone who will wear 95% sweaters for the next four months, believe me when I say their sweater game is strong.  Filled with vague holiday inspiration, they are perfect for the season but versatile enough to continue wearing throughout the rest of winter!  I will wear almost entirely sweaters to get togethers from Thanksgiving to New Year’s because I absolutely hate being cold, but it can be challenging to find new and exciting ways to wear a sweater than with a pair of jeans and riding boots.  So I’m challenging myself to find sweaters this season that I know will look just as cute with a festive skirt as with a pair of jeans!

I bought this LC Lauren Conrad tulle skirt last year and it was absolutely perfect for Christmas Eve, but I wasn’t sure I would be able to find another way to wear it this year.  Luckily as soon as I saw this Ivanka Trump sweater I knew it would be the perfect match, and even appropriate as early as Thanksgiving with a cooler color palette!  I adore Ivanka Trump’s entire line (we are birthday twins, after all!), but I often find it hard to justify the hefty price tags (I bought my favorite black boots at 50% off in February last year).  I’ve spotted so many to die for items at T.J.Maxx from my favorite designers, and the only thing I love more is the price tag.  I was able to find this sweater at Lord & Taylor online, but make sure you check your local store for it and other similar styles!
