sweater jacket + a giveaway

    October 26, 2016

    You know how when you go shopping for something specific in mind, you never find it? But when you go shopping with no real agenda, you end up buying one of everything? That’s precisely what happened to me at the Thread fall blogger shopping event at the Cincinnati Premium Outlets a few weekends ago.

    I didn’t feel like there was anything I really needed or was looking for, but of course, as I bounced into a number of different retailers, I found many a thing I was not looking for.

    One nice score of the day was this Ann Taylor Factory Store oversized sweater. It is impossible to resist the coziness of a good knit and this drape option works as both a sweater and a coat. It is thick and soft and tunic length, which makes it a perfect option for casual cocktails and bon fires alike. At an already awesome price, plus an additional sale discount, this sweater came in at under $50 and that makes it all the better. I look forward to this one working all winter long, as long as that winter actually shows up…

    After this one, I might need to be knocked down a peg. Guess what Kenny and I did this past Sunday? Had a licensed massage therapist come to our house, set up shop in our bedroom,…
