Good morning, friends! I wasn’t planning to post today, and then I decided to throw together an Instagram Roundup along with some of the Weekend Sales I’m watching. I’m also trying to share some of my outfits over on my FB Page, as that was requested a few times in my 2017 Reader Survey (which is still open, by the way! I’ll share the results and giveaway announce the winner on Monday!) So I’m also including those outfits in this IG Roundup, making this more of a “What I Wore” kind of post, I guess!
I hate to post duplicate content on FB and IG because I find it annoying when I see the same stuff on both platforms by people I follow, but I realize not everyone is on both or follow me on both so I may be letting up on that policy over the next few months and see how it goes. I will still try to keep the majority of the content on those platforms different, though, so as not to be too terribly redundant.
So anyway, here we go. This is what I wore this week, in no particular order.
I wore this outfit to go shopping one day, I think. Trying to remember. I know I was going somewhere. These boots are still available in limited sizes, and I love them this time of year becasue they’re really warm, super comfortable, and waterproof! Plus they’re 40% off right now at Nordstrom.
The cashmere v-neck is from Bloomingdale’s Aqua line, and I really like the raised seams and rib-knit neck detail. I just wish the neckline weren’t quite so narrow. For size reference, I have the small, but it’s a little snug. I have the turtleneck version in a medium, and I think I prefer the fit on that one, so you if you’re considering this, you may want to size up if you tend to run in between sizes.
Also, this sweater is 50% off thru 1/9/18 PLUS Lloyalists can take an additional 25% off when they shop with their Boomingdale’s Card OR 15% off when they shop with your Lloyalist ID.
Signing up to be a Lloyalist is free, and it gives you free shipping so I recommend it, although you can also use Shoprunner with Bloomgindale’s if you have that. I love Shoprunner because it gives you free 2-day shipping and free returns at a lot of retailers who otherwise charge (like Lucky Brand and Ann Taylor, to name a few.) Plus I love that I can get my Bloomies orders in 2 days, whereas Nordstrom can often take a week or more.
Whew, that was a lot of info on a simple outfit. Ha!
Aqua Cashmere V-Neck 50% off // similar AG Legging Ankle Jeans (earns a $25 Bloomies reward card) // Blondo Olivia Tall Boots 40% off // Rebecca Minkoff Mini Perry // Silpada Duomo Pendant // D Yurman Oval Large Link Bracelet (earns a $75 Bloomies reward card)
I wore this outfit to church a couple weeks ago. It is always cold in our church building, so I bundled up in a cozy cashmere turtleneck, black jeans, black OTK boots, and I wore my Paloma coat, which I kept on for most of the morning. I really like this classic color combination.

This is what I wore for New Year’s Eve. We went to a casual party at a friend’s house, and I knew when I purchased this sweatshirt that I’d be wearing it for NYE. I’ve also worn it a lot of other times. It is just so soft. I know, I tend to say that everything is soft, lol, but it really is remarkably so for a sweatshirt. The material is on the thinner side, but I’m not cold when I wear it. We keep our house pretty warm, I guess. For size reference, I have the 3.
Also, I love, love, love these loafers, and they’re 50% off right now. I featured them yesterday in my January Favorites post, but if you missed that, I love their minimalistic style, and they’re really soft and flexible. Unfortunately, these loafers are low inventory at Nordstrom, but this Halogen pair is similar (and under $100) and I also like the Me Too Audra loafer a lot.
This is a picture I shared on my Facebook Page because this cashmere cardigan FINALLY went 50% off! The blush that I’m wearing is sold out, but they still have it in grey. It’s a gorgeous sweater, so so so soft, great quality, yadda yadda. I think it was 40% off when I got it at the #NSale, so 50% is the lowest it’s been and I expect it to be sold out soon.
I wore this comfy casual outfit on New Year’s Day. We were mostly at home, but we did go to a 3-year-old birthday party in the neighborhood. This sweater is old, but so warm and cozy, and yes, soft. Ha!
I wore this outfit a couple days ago when we had a snow day. I knew I wouldn’t be going anywhere so there was really no need for snow boots, although I did end up changing to slippers when I got back inside.
Here’s at mirror selfie so you can see the outfit better. I put this on my Insta Story. I’ve been trying out some lower priced jeans so I have some I can recommend to you, and I really like this pair by BlankNYC for $88. The material is… wait for it… super soft. Ha! Not, it really is remarkable how soft they are.
They’re a little thicker than the Articles of Society jeans I recommended in a previous post, which I like, and I like the wash and distressing details a little better as well. They’re definitely ripped up, but they’re cute if you like the deconstructed look. That brand does have other jeans that aren’t ripped.
The only weird part about these is the rear pockets are really tiny. I generally like a smaller pocket, like on Paige and AG jeans, but these may be too small for my liking. It all depends on you and your body, though. I know a lot of people who wear and love this brand.
I wore this simple outfit to host my family Christmas party the weekend after Christmas. Nothing new here, but I do love the fit and proportion of this look, and the loafers give it a chic modern vibe.
I’m adding this one in because Fotini reminded me about it in the comments. This La Nuit sweater is so cute for this time of year, and it’s under $12 at Loft right now! Currently it’s fully stocked in all sizes.
I snapped this picture for my Insta Story after my manicure yesterday. I’m trying a new color. This is CND Cashmere Wrap, and it’s such a pretty neutral. My nails are pretty short right now because the cold weather has made them kind of brittle, so I wanted something really light. I have the Shellac but it’s also available in the Vinylux.
Finally, this is what I wore yesterday to get my manicure (see above) and run a few errands afterwards. This sweater is a really stretchy knit, and yes, again, really soft and cozy. I like how long the sleeves are and the rib trim detail on hem and sleeves. Most Madewell sweaters run big, but this one runs smaller and is more form fitting than the others I have by this brand. I have the small, but I wouldn’t mind trying the medium because I’m often tugging it down.
My UGG boots are like 10 years old, but I can’t bear to part with them because they’re so warm, and I really like the styling.
Whew! That’s a wrap! Funny, I thought this post was going to be short. Haha. Who am I fooling? My posts are never short.
Okay, so here are some weekend sales you may be interested in!
