Buying Off Season

Posted on: August 1, 2014

As my Regular Followers know I love a Bargain, 

I can hear my mother saying, “That’s your Scottish Heritage” 

If that’s insulting to Scottish people, my apologies…

So I went on the hunt online for some sweaters to buy off season…

This is a wonderful burgundy and pink houndstooth print heavy sweater by Liz Claiborne via JCP

A crisp white also by Liz Claiborne that has a heavy cabled bodice and plain sleeves that makes it perfect for layering under a jacket!

A nice teal striped v-neck from Joe Fresh also JCP

IMG_0893Another JCP find of a striped sweatshirt  that I would say is a medium weight..

The final JCP buy of another sweatshirt, but this one I would qualify as lightweight…

Here is a link to what JCP has on clearance for sweaters right now!

Speaking of Ligtweight , this hoodie version is from the men’s dept of Aeropostle and perfect for continuing the sporty look into FALL…

This one is now sold out…

This sweaterknit is actually a brighter green than the picture shows .

I found this by Cable & Gauge on a Burlington Coat Factory Clearance Rack…

This Carolyn Taylor cardigan is also from Burlington’s clearance rack…

This Petite Valerie Stevens 100% wool Fair Isle sweater is from Best Thrift and was $1.25

This last sweater is also from Best Thrift ans was $1.50 

It’s a marbled black and white number that is fairly heavy weight and still had the small sticker on the chest..

It’s  an American Eagle Outfitters 

In addition to sweaters, I also added two new purses through Just Fab sales special

This is Navy and Black and one I’ve had my eye on for awhile, so when it was half price I coudn’t help myself

With Grey being so big for the upcoming Fall season, I had to get this barrel bag ,

as Ive been wanting a grey purse for two years…

Dear Readers, Have you begun Fall shopping , yet?  Or are you waiting for Tax Free Weekend ?  

I didn’t get out today and had a brief moment of being overwhelmed by sadeness, but managed to snap myself out of it , get dressed and took a walk to the store…. As the Universe provides, I found a $20 bill in the self -checkout and turned it into the cashier in hopes that whoever left it will come back looking and be surprised that someone was honest enough to turn it in…. Remember what I said about faking it til you make it…. well, this is what happens when you do!  A good pick me up!   

Now if this migraine would go away…

Gratitude

I am grateful that I chose this blog post for today , as my photographers’ sleep schedules are meesed up and both konked out for a long nap…

I am grateful for a fun talk with DD today, as we discuseed everything from psychology to her middle school years and even a plan for the best way to schedule the classes for homeschooling….

I am grateful that I was able to fall back asleep after an early awakening…

I am grateful for my angel voice who comforts me with wonderful insights early in the morning. when my brain is muffled and open to it…

You got some great sweaters, Tracey! I too have been shopping for some sweaters recently. Purchased a few the other day and am going after work today to look again. Of yours I particularly like that solid white cable knit, the gray/white striped, and that gray handbag. (I’m into gray right now too.) I just purchased a top almost identical to your v-neck blue stripe. My goal is to find sweatshirts and sweaters that are casual, but can be dressed up with accessories to makea casual sophisticated chic look.
Can’t wait to see you you style your new things! 🙂

great sweater! It would be even worth buying when it weren’t a bargain!

Exactly the point of off season shopping- to not settle but get great pieces!
