Never Settle







Sweater-J.Crew via Poshmark (similar, similar purple) | Pinstripe button up-NY&Co (similar, similar) | Pants-Old Navy (similar, similar) | Boots-Espirit (similar, similar) | Bracelet-Groopdealz, gift

I was so excited when I found this sweater on Poshmark last month. It was brand new and for a fraction of the retail cost was! I had originally purchased this fair isle sweater from J.Crew Factory, but jeweled and navy blue are definitely more up my alley even if I did pay $15 more. Have you ever purchased something only to 'upgrade' a few days later? Just another reason to leave the tags on for a couple days if you aren't completely sure about a purchase. And another reason never to settle!

  2. I have definitely bought something to just find something else days later. Whoops! I am loving both your sweater and your pants! Very cute look girl!

  3. I am the queen of returns! It always helps to have time to think and look for other, less expensive options. So glad it worked out for you! I love how you paired it. That will be a classic sweater you can keep through the seasons.

  8. I did that once with a polka dot top that I bought at Old Navy. The Limited had one that fit me much better and was only $7 more. (But I actually ended up selling that top last year.) I've definitely done the same thing with jeans in the past. I never take off my tags until I know that I'm ready to head out the door. I really like this sweater. You're so crafty with your ways!

  9. Oooh yay for such a great find! I am weird about taking the tags off of things (I leave them on for a really long time) and it usually works out to my advantage. I'm finally at a point in life where I am willing to spend a little more on things that I love that I think I will have a long time!

  13. Love this kind of look! It lasts from Junior high, high school, college till now...., The contrast of your shirt and sweater is a big plus too.

  14. I love Poshmark! I just bought a J. Crew dress for $10.00 yesterday, can't wait for it to arrive! I am actually horrible about returning things, which is why I have items in my closet with the tags still on them, it's just a shame! But I'm working on it :)

  18. Your sweater is striking! I love how you've layered it with a shirt underneath. Your trousers hug your legs beautifully and I love your boots too. Such a great look!

  20. This sweater is so pretty on you, and I love it with the blue oxford underneath!

  21. That's definitely a valuable lesson I've learned over the past few years: saving a few bucks on something that's almost right is not worth it if you don't wear it! I'd say spending the extra $15 on what you really wanted was a wise decision!

  22. Oh I am quite familiar with this - and I'm so happy it worked out perfectly! The sweater is quite lovely.

  23. I love this sweater on you. I wasn't too drawn to this print but with how you styled it - I want it now! I always keep tags on my clothes in case I have buyers remorse which happens way too often.

  25. Gosh, you are just so cute, Laura! I had a huge love affair with fair isle (and argyle) when I was in high school, so I'm not ready to wear it again, but I like how it looks on you!!
