I instantly fell in love with it when I saw it at the Michael Kors outlet at the Woodburry Common Outlets. Pairing a chunky sweater with a leather skirt has been big this season and I took full advantage of it. I also absolutely love the boots I found at Zara during the after Christmas sales. They were originally $119, but I paid $49, and I couldn’t believe it when I found them in my size. I usually supplement my closet during sales time, especially with timeless pieces, as they will be in style for a while. Even this gorgeous sweater was $19 instead of $49! And being a neutral, even thought with some visual interest, I will be able to wear it for many years. In cold weather, just throw on a down coat, scarf, hat & gloves, and you’re ready for a 5 @ 7!
