I was definitely holding back on the shopping this weekend, and to ensure my spending stayed in check, I brought my hubby along for the trip to give me the instant guilt-check. I only purchased candles from Bath & Body Works (2/$20 and new Christmas candles with a 20-off coupon - WHAT?!) and a trip to J. Crew.
Upon learning that sweaters were on in-store promo for 25 off, I decided late into the game that I needed the camel polka dot Tippi sweater, mentioned on SEVERAL blogs including: 1moreshoppingblog, Tweedandtoile, andVeronika's Blushing. The promo plus educator discount influenced me, but also the fact that it was apparently sold out EVERYWHERE (online and in stores). I ended up getting it a size larger than normal but it fits fine, just loose, and I am happy with it. Also bought the silk zebra top in the brown color. That one was on final sale and I was so happy to finally get it in my size. I think it will look great with bright colors!
