Tis the season for SALES! If you’re anything like me, you may be lured into purchasing items just because they are on sale, but in the last few years, I’ve become more disciplined and curated over what goes into my closet. Here are the qualifications for anything I purchase, especially sale items:
1) It has to be a quality item – I don’t disposable wardrobe items!
2) As timeless as possible (trends are fun!)
3) Versatile and work over multiple seasons
4) And most importantly, it must be comfortable to wear for my everyday mom life!
Here’s a perfect case in point: the Tootsies Takes Off sale going on NOW at Tootsies in Houston. You can score up to 75% off on brands including. We’re talking current season, too!
I found these Mother ankle jeans for almost half off and knew they were a keeper. I like a fitted jean because I’m so short, flares do NOT work on me, and the ankle length is a top trend right now. The lighter color will be great to transition into spring, and the distressing appeals to my inner rock star. HA!
I’m pairing these with the softest, most feminine and easy sweater from Eileen Fisher. It feels like a dream, and looks as good with leather leggings and a cami under it as it does with denim. VERSATILE! I was able to get both of these pieces for less of the original price on the denim. Serious score.
If you are in Houston, run, don’t walk, over to Tootsies to get the first run at their biggest sale of the year. AND to make this cold day a little better – I’m giving away a $100 gift card to Tootsies. To enter, head over to my Instagram and leave a comment on this outfit picture – tag 3 friends for extra entries. Winner will be announced today!
XO Good luck!
