Every girl needs this cardigan.

It’s rare that I say EVERY person needs something because I mean c’mon, we all have different styles, budgets, likes and dislikes, but I honestly am not sure of one female who isn’t a fan of a cozy, neutral cardigan. A piece that can be worn while lounging around the house with leggings, over a simple shirt dress to cut the late Winter chill or even to work layered with a blouse and dress pants to keep warm in those frigid office buildings is kind of universal, right?? The moment this Free People Low Tide cardigan was released, I knew I had to get my hands on it. I tried it on while in Texas but could not justify the $128 price tag so I put it back on the rack. Almost on a daily basis I would look for places that might have it on sale, offer coupon codes to discount its full price, etc. but couldn’t catch a break. If it would’ve been September when I saw the cardigan and hadn’t already purchased like 10 cardigans prior to discovering this one, I might’ve pulled the trigger in stores.

Then a miracle happened and Macy’s discounted the Cream to $64.99. On top of that they were running some 20% off sale prices deal so it was coming out to just over $50. Uhmmm, SOLD. But because I like to earn Nordstrom points on my Nordstrom Debit Card, I chatted with their customer service and they price-matched not just the Cream but also the Dark Grey and I got BOTH cardigans for $103.98. I got two frickin’ sweaters for less than every other retailer has a single one listed for. Literally felt like I had stolen them and wasn’t even sorry about it. When Kyle got home from work that night I was so excited to tell him about my bargain shopping skills. He was impressed but also wondered why I needed two more cardigans. Clearly I told him not to worry about that part. Best news…this Low Tide cardi is ON SALE with that additional 20% off again at Macy’s and also includes the Rose color. Get ’em while they’re hot and while it’s still cold outside, babes!

Wear it all the time.

Since I’ve had these cardigans, I’ve worn them almost daily. They’re pretty slouchy and aren’t ones that you want to hang up on hangars so I have them draped over an arm chair which makes them super easy to grab at any time. Over the weekend I layered my cream cardi over the cutest lace tank. I paired them both with my new pair of J Brand jeans that I’m trying to love but I honestly think I just hate. 🙁 I know I am not nearly the same height as the model was but I still expected these to be a bit more cropped; instead I feel like they just made me look kind of heavy. {Side note: if anyone is in the market for THESE in a Size 26, I’ve only worn them twice and I’d sell them for a REALLY good deal!} At least I was casual and relaxed so that’s a positive I guess! Alright babes–lets hope this Monday flies by! xox

FRIYAY is finally here, babes! Unfortunately in Omaha this Friday looks like the twilight zone compared to last Friday. A week ago I was in shorts, drinking a cold beer and soaking up the unseasonably warm and sunny weather. Today I am stuck at home because it’s 25*, winds are gusting 40+ mph and the […]

#1 Scallop Linguini I made THIS recipe for dinner on Valentine’s Day and it was a major hit. Like seriously so good. This was my first time cooking scallops at home and not to brag, but I kind of nailed it. 🙂 As I do with most recipes I added a few things on my […]

Happy Monday, babes! Anyone else not thrilled that weekends go by fast AF? Like c’mon. Just give me an extra day–or two–and I’m sure I’d be better rested and in a better mood. Another crazy week ahead for me but I wanted to start it out with one of everyone’s favorite kinds of posts: an […]

Bright red? Heck yes! All the praise hands for today being Friday! Also I’ll use some praise hands for the color red. Why I don’t have more red in my closet, I’m not sure, but after wearing the bold hue I’m convinced it provides instant cheerful vibes. So this weekend I cannot wait to just […]

Today is Friday, right? Ughhh. Longest. Week. Ever. Maybe it’s the fact that the weather has been super bi-polar and in turn has made my attitude the same way. Yesterday we got like 4″ of snow, today the windchill is 3* and tomorrow the high is 61*. Like what the heck. Combine that with being incredibly […]

Work clothes don’t have to be dull and boring. Although most of them honestly tend to be. I’ve said it before but I am definitely lucky in my professional life because I’ve got a pretty laid-back dress code. Being in the IT industry and then being 1 of only 2 {we recently added a female […]

Give me ALL the pink! Growing up I was kind of definitely more of a tomboy than a girlie girl but despite being super active in athletics and always knowing what was going on in the world of sports, I also always loved clothes. While most of my friends’ high school attire consisted of extremely […]
