Totally making up for the Michael Kors debacle; I popped into H & M (after winding my way through J. Crew and their 25% off sale - nothing needed to be added that I didn't already have). I found a similar fisherman sweater at a third of the price of the Michael Kors version, plus picked up a cozy grey sweater & infinity scarf (for our chilly Southern California fall - I jest). Total cost was about $56.
While at Target, I nabbed two super soft, very versatile sweaters (both under $25 each). These are great to throw on, and if they only last one season, I'm happy.
Not shown: the Calvin Klein black wedge pumps I also picked up at Nordstrom Rack. I saw them last week and have been thinking about them all week. It's amazing they were still there!
Now we just need the weather to cooperate and cool off.
