J.Crew copycat

Friday, November 9

My first favorite part of this outfit was getting to wear my hair normally again. After days upon days of curling, straightening, and hair-spraying it (which ends up feeling like shellac, I tell you) during the show, it felt so great and so perfectly Priya (eh? eh?) to wear it in my typical crazy waves.
 sweater- J.Crew, skirt- J.Crew, tights- Nordys Rack, boots- Rackroom Shoes
 My second favorite part, and the really the only part that matters is THIS SWEATER. I found it Monday as my sister went on our last-Nashville hurrah (for her) shopping trip at Opry Mills Mall (aka, factory stores). 
I was not feeling particularly in a shopping mood (I should say- I was trying not to feel in a shopping mood) and I managed to make it through several stores without anything. But this sweater. Ohhhh I love it. Ask me how many people knew that this was my new sweater when I wore it. 
They had it styled in the store with a floral skirt that had almost the same color scheme as this J.Crew skirt (circa Christmas 2011). I thought, brilliant! I almost have this outfit at home already!
I loved the gray tights, not entirely sure about the boots. Thoughts?
 It's kinda a splurge for me, but: It was from a Factory store. It's a quality item. I adore it. I can wear it forever. It's totally me (this is more me convincing myself that's it's ok, but you can keep me accountable). 

And hey hey it's the weekend. Tonight is our big opener basketball game, tomorrow is Paula's wedding, Sunday I'll be at Donut Den and working on a group project. But it's the weekend!

And one week from today I'll be in California for Thanksgiving for the first time in FOUR YEARS!

That really is a great sweater! And not in a shopping mood? I was going to say no way at first. I think you find the best things when you are "not in a shopping mood" at least it always seems that way. I love this sweater with the floral skirt too. Can't wait to see how else you style it :)

just a helpful hint for future - j crew & j crew factory gives 15% student discount with your student id :D it's great. and i love thise sweater - i almost bought the one in a different color scheme when i was there last (but stuck to buying my cardigans to DIY instead.) and this skirt was perfect to go with it. i have days like that shopping too - where you just aren't really feeling it. it's great to find awesome things on those days

Oh Priya! You look so cute! This is one of my favorite outfits EVER on your blog! I love that sweater so much. I went to that store a little while ago and they have the cutest things! You look darling in this sweater, so it was definitely a great purchase! I LOVE your bangs too. I would never have noticed that they were split in the pictures! haha. So cute that you have a pic form this year and last year. You two are the cutest!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I say "no" and also my friend says "yes" and the looser has to wear a
pair of jeggings to the mall tommarrow. Do you have any suggestions for what shoes the looser should wear with the jeggings?
