FringeKid received a sizable gift card to Kohl’s for Christmas. I’m always thankful for family who bless my kids with nice Christmas gifts. I really do appreciate them.
As soon as she opened her gift card, she said, “I want you to get something too.”
And she meant it.
FringeKid and I have a little tradition in Kohl’s. Every time we get to go shopping there, I always split whatever money I have with her. We each scour the clearance racks, including the jewelry clearance rack and walk away with something fabulous.
Usually we only go in the store with fifteen or twenty bucks, so we work to dig a treasure out of the 80% off clothes.
That’s why she insisted I get something on this shopping trip. It’s kind of a tradition for us.
As soon as we walked into the store, she spotted this owl sweater, ran over and grabbed it. She gave it to me for Christmas and I love it.
Sweater: Kohl’s, Pants: Sonoma brand from Kohl’s, Necklace: Charming Charlies
My hair blew up over my head. That’s why it looks cooky on top.
Anyway…I’ve had this sweater for years. It’s kind of gross with all the pimples on it, but I love how comfortable it is. I call it my grandpa sweater. One of the seams is coming apart at the wrist, but it will make through this winter.
Sweater: Target (old), T-shirt: Hand-me-Down, Jeans: Kohl’s, Boots: Dr. Marten Becca Engineer boot.
I found this tutorial on Pinterest for turning an old sweater into a circle scarf and boot socks. Just so happens I had an old sweater in my closet. I’ve had this sweater for years and I don’t know where it came from. I didn’t buy it, so it must have been a hand-me-down. Although it fit me, it never looked right. I think it would work better on a tall, thin woman, but not so much on my shape.
It was so easy to turn the sweater into a circle scarf and boot socks. I simply cut off the arms and made leg warmers. Then I cut the torso of the sweater right under the armpits.
Bam! A circle scarf.
No sewing involved. Pretty cool, huh?
Jeans: Same as above, T-shirt: Hand-me-down (I know you can see that I sewed a hole in the front of the shirt. I should probably trash it, but I won’t. I’ll wear it till summer and then I’ll think about trashing it.), Scarf and socks: Upcycled, Boots: Same as above.
That’s it. It’s what I wore this week, or at least what I remembered to photograph.
