Fashion OOTD, a few weekend outfit ideas and my latest fun fashion find!

Happy Friday!

Can you believe it's the last day of November?  CRAZY!  The past few months have FLOWN by for some reason...time flies when you're having fun I suppose!  This weekend we have lots going on including game night with friends tonight, and hosting my oldest son's 9th birthday party tomorrow afternoon.  I would like to think my husband will finally put up the Christmas lights outside tomorrow sometime so we don't look like the only scrooges on the block, but since he has to work in the morning and go to a church meeting in the late afternoon tomorrow, I'm not sure that's going to happen.  I've already threatened to call my friend's gardener to have him do it but hubby assures me he wants to do it himself.  We shall see. =)

Oh, and thanks to those who participated in D.A.S.H. yesterday!  It was fun to see what deals and steals others have recently gotten.  I love finding a great deal!

For Fashion Friday today I have a few things to share...up first is an outfit I wore this week that came together by shopping my closet:

See Polyvore Set for this look HERE

Field Game Cardigan-Anthropologie
Floral Tank-J Crew Factory (OLD)
Jeggings-American Eagle
Miz Mooz "Kelsey" Boots-Piperlime
Necklace-Stella & Dot
Frutta Earrings-Anthropologie
Rachel Multitexture Bangles-Nordstrom (BP)
Marc by Marc Jacobs "Henry Chrono" Watch
Ring-Forever 21

That tank is one of the first things I ever purchased from J Crew Factory.  I used to wear it all the time!  Perhaps too much...I think I got a little tired of it.  Now it's like a new shirt all over again though.  I knew I'd want to pull it out again sometime!  =)

Next up, you asked and I'm listening!  I received several requests for outfit ideas so here are a few more comfy, cute looks that would be great options to pull out of your closet for whatever it is you're up to this weekend.  Who knows...I may wear one of them too (I've actually already worn one of them this week)!  All items used in these looks can be found in my own closet...some are newer items and some are quite old.  Shopping your closet and rediscovering an item in a new way really can be fun!

Look #1

J Crew Factory Sequin Striped Sweater/ Gap Always Skinny Jeans/ DV by Dolce Vita "Lujan" Boots

Look #2

Floral Still Life Pullover/ Gap Skimmer Legging Jeans/ DV by Dolce Vita "Pilar" Booties/ Hello Fab Hot Pink Link Necklace

Look #3

J Crew Wildcat cardi Look

Last but not least, I couldn't help but point out this amazing new item I found at Banana Republic this past week:

Now when I saw it online I wasn't totally impressed (it comes in both "black" and "camel heather" by the way).  When I saw it hanging on the hanger in the store I was a little more intrigued.  When I put it on, however, I LOVED it!  

It's quite an expensive item ($140 full price, $115 on sale online now) and I have no intention of pulling the trigger for that price (way too much in my opinion), but I will be keeping my eye on it for an even better sale!  I have some coupons and a rewards card I might use towards it if the deal is eventually good enough. In my experience, Banana Republic has great quality clothing that holds up for years and years.  I have items in my closet from over 10 years ago that I pull out every now and again from Banana and they still look great!  They produce great, classic pieces.

So there you have it...lots of fashion talk this fabulous Friday!  

What do you have planned for the weekend?  Are you dressing up for anything fun and exciting?  Or just hanging close to home?  What do you think of my Banana Republic sweater find?  Have you tried it on?  
Do tell!

Whatever you have planned, I hope you have a great weekend!


  1. I love that J.Crew sweater in your first look! xo

    1. Thanks so much! I'm actually wearing it today! =)

  2. The field game sweater from Anthro - I will always regret not snagging one!


    1. Someone has to be selling one in eBay or the EA trade market!!!

  3. Thanks for the BR tip - you're right - the GAP companies' stock photos are never as cute as IRL a lot of the time. I'm adding the sweater to my cart and waiting for a good sale!

  4. I've always loved that cardi you are wearing...and the J Crew sparkle sweater is great, I have mine from last year :)

  5. Love the outfit and the sets!!!
