J. Crew Factory had a major blowout sale in December and I had a camel color sweater and that geometric skirt on my radar for the longest time. It was well worth the wait! The skirt alone was regularly $85—crazy!
Speaking of crazy sales, I picked up the black vest (#8) on clearance as well from Sears. It can be worn so many ways, and I’ve already got a few ideas on how to wear it from Ginny!
I was looking for some black skinny stretch jeans to replace the ones I got from H&M because I didn’t care for the fabric and the rise was REALLY high for me. The ones from Target (#5) are fantastic and oh-so-comfortable! And who doesn’t love a good bow belt? I’ve already worn it a few times….very Kate Spade-esque, but from Target!
Lastly, I picked up some running socks (#9) and had a Cartwheel coupon for them. These socks are affordable and super supportive! Santa may have gotten me some, too so I’m all stocked up! I also returned something at the UA Outlet and found these gloves (#10) for over half off! I didn’t really have any cold weather running gloves so I’m excited to try these out…if I don’t wimp out at the cold too much, right Kim?!

These are all great finds, but I really love that bow belt and the geometric print skirt. So cute!

Those are my two favorite things! I can’t believe how cheap I got that skirt for…so worth waiting it out! Already brainstorming on all the different ways I can style it! :-)
You got so many amazing pieces! I absolutely love that geometric skirt, and I can’t believe you got it for so cheap. Great pieces!
Thanks Kaitlin! I had been eyeing that skirt for the longest time…that’s the price I pay for a skirt at Target– go figure! Needless to say, it was worth the wait! Thanks for reading!
Right! No more wimping out on the cold! It’s going to be a cold winter, it seems! And you haven’t run outside since Thanksgiving?! :P LOL. This week isn’t looking so good to start.
Love that black and purple skirt!
I know I know :-) Typically, no outside running for me until the icy surfaces are gone and I don’t see my breath!! That skirt is probably my fave from the month too- I’ve got several ideas in mind on how to style it!
That belt is sooooo cute! Seriously, I love it! And you definitely scored at JCrew factory – their stuff is usually too expensive for me but you got amazing deals!
I saw it on another blogger and made an impulse purchase…but it was well worth it- especially when it’s under $10! Goes with so much! And yes, JCF had some MAJOR sales throughout the holiday season…it’s worth the wait for these annual blowouts for sure!
