Cute Outfit of the Day: Gray on Gray

Banana Republic cashmere sweater: thrift $4
Forever 21 jeans: thrift $5
Target shoes: thrift $4
clutch: thrift $2
Total Cost: $15

I'm ruined! I've never owned anything cashmere before but now that I've worn this gorgeous Banana Republic sweater I can never go back! It's got the warm of wool but with the softness of cotton! And I got it for only $4! I'm in love!

Today I decided to do a monochromatic look. I paired my gray sweater with my gray jeans and added silver to stay in the same color family but to add a little shine!

I guess I'm not the only one who loves this sweater! While cruising Pinterest I came across actress Nora Zehetner wearing the same sweater!

    1. Thanks Rachel! I like the collar to- not as restrictive as a turtleneck but still covers the neck so I can stay warm!

  10. Oh, I just love this look! I know people say that all the time, but this was pin worthy for me - it's *that* serious! What a great, luxurious looking sweater, and for $4, I'd be doing cartwheels! I love that everything is monochromatic, but different enough to keep it interesting!

  16. I have a few cashmere sweaters and just love them! Yours is gorgeous! I love the lighter gray cuffs and neck of it. The metallic shoes and clutch really accent the gray well.

  18. Yes to all of this! Love the look. The price makes it look even better. Thrifting needs to be my resolution for the year! LOL

  19. Ugh, the thrift store in Italy suck!! But you've inspired me to start going to the weekly market where there are a few thrift vendors. I miss thrift shopping in Canada SO MUCH especially after seeing your great style.

    You have a great eye for finding clothes and putting outfits together.
