Fair Isle Love

So how we did our bank accounts fare yesterday on cyber monday deals?
Confession:  I didn't buy a thing.  Extreme sales overwhelm me.  It's too much pressure and I get nervous.  So I sat there all day not buying things at 20% off that I'll most likely buy this weekend with no free shipping.  I'm going to work on that for next year.  Get myself better organized for Christmas.  What are your tips for scoring deals without over buying?

So I'm pretty much currently obsessed with fair isle.
 Not in the obsurd trendy way, but in the warm and cozy perfect for the holidays with family kind of way.  Maybe it was spending five days in the mountains with my in-laws for Thanksgving, but I'm 100% on board with outfiting my whole family in this classic knit.

Here are my top picks for Fair Isle.  See any you like?  I threw a few little girl sweaters in there from crewcuts being they were too cute not to add.  All around, these sweaters are at the top of my list for sure.  Who am I kidding, Wells will get one and rock it for the next two months and I'll be stuck in my same old solids.  Maybe this post will encourage you to buy one for yourself too.   Maybe elevate your own wardrobes to at least equal those of your kids.

  2. I saw the ones at Old Navy this past weekend and they look so cozy and comfy! I'm not an online shopper unless I've already tried it on or own it in a different color...Plus I'm a LOFT kinda girl!

  9. I have that same problem. Too many good deals, I don't know which ones to do, so I end up not doing any.

  11. Honestly... I did the same thing. I had good intentions and wanted to pull the trigger on plenty. I just didn't feel prepared. The holidays (and Black Friday) really just happened quickly this year, didn't they?
