Some time ago while shopping at the outlet mall, I found this gem of a top and even better it was marked down to $4.99. If you know me at all, you know I love a turtleneck - I don't care what season it is. I spotted a sleeveless cotton turtleneck in a great neutral color for a great price. At the time I didn't know how or when I would wear it first, but I did know I would wear it. An item you purchase on sale is not a great deal unless you wear it.
On a chilly evening here in West Michigan the Mister and I were heading out for an impromptu dinner with friends. Finally .... time to debut the top. I paired it with my favorite Kut from the Kloth jeans, a black cardigan, and my lace up bootie sandals for the evening. My accessories included my favorite "seat belt" belt, black hoop earrings, and a simple drop necklace. This look was casual, yet put together.
I immediately thought of 2 additional outfits I will make with this sale gem in the weeks and months to come. I have included pictures of all 3 outfits for you to see. The second outfit (located top right in the photo below) is a bit more edgy. I paired my bomber jacket, same belt and earrings, along with mules on my feet. The shoes tie in so well. There is a textured leather band that goes across the top of the foot while portion covering the toe box is a beautiful smooth leather. In the last look (located bottom right in the photo below) I changed the bomber for a green utility jacket, paired that with neutral sandals for another casual, yet put together look. I will add gold jewelry to this outfit to pull it all together when I wear it.
I may try layering underneath this with a very light tissue tee as it cools down here in West Michigan. I may even try a button down underneath with the collar popping out of the turtleneck and adding a black blazer over the layers to finish this look.
I love all the options I am creating with this little bargain. I would say $5 bucks well spent.
I would love to hear of a bargain you bought and found several options for. Better yet, I would love to help with one you are struggling with finding a way to wear now that you saved all that money. Leave your bargain story in the comments !
