Thrifty Thursday: Kray for Kimono

and by ‘kray’ I mean KRAZY of course! Seriously though, I am crazy about this kimono I saw on Free People. This time of year it’s really hard to shop  because you don’t want to waste your money on wintery clothes you can only wear for a few more months of cold but then you don’t want to buy summer clothes that you are going to have to wait forever till you can wear. So, during this time I like to find pieces that I can wear both now and later. Get more bang for my buck if you know what im saying!

Ok so back to my kimono craze! This is from Free People and it’s called the Parisian Print Kimono. It was originally $128.00 but it’s been marked down 70% off and is now only $39.95. The colors in this kimono are gorgeous. The dark background gives it a more fall & wintery feel, but the offset, bright colored florals give you the ok to rock this in spring & summer too. Honestly you are going to wear it all year round.

Right now while you are are waiting for the cold to go away, wear this kimono as pictured above: with leggings and boots. But when warm comes again, lose the leggings for legs and switch out the riding boots for some strappy sandals. And if you want a fancier look, don’t be afraid to layer it on top of a skirt or dress….the layers of flowy will look super pretty and compliment each other if you tie it all together with the right belt!

P.S. Not only is the Parisian Print Kimono accommodating to different seasons, it also comes in red floral! So darling.

Deal Day Thursday! The Juciest Sweater!!!!

There’s only one good thing about cold weather and that one good thing is SWEATERS!!!!! I can’t think of anything better to wear on a chilly winter day than a cozy, comfy, juicy sweater! When I was looking for the deal of the day I couldn’t believe this find!! It’s called the Plaited shawl-collar cardigan and it’s from Gap! Originally $79.95, but in this neutral color it’s on sale for only $34.99!

What I love about this sweater is that 1, it is soooooo soft and 2, it can be worn with so many different looks!! The splash of stripes makes it so versatile! When I was at Gap I tried it on with a really pretty tank top (also on sale marked down 50% to just $24.99!) and these amazing red jeggings to give it a holiday pop! But you can also rock this sweater with a more casual look by layering a thinner sweater underneath and spicing it up with some funky accessories and a beret!

I still hate winter but this sweater does make it a little….ok, this sweater makes it a LOT more bearable!! So, if we must be cold………..let’s at least be cold in a fabulous sweater! Happy shopping and happy Thursday!!!!!
