What’s the one thing most people ask for over the holidays—GIFT CARDS! They’re the perfect way to say, “I love you and appreciate you, but I want you to be able to pick out something you’ll really love!” And that’s exactly what I’ve done. My sweet friend got me a Tanger gift card, knowing that I’ve needed a winter refresh for a while.
It’s that time of year when I feel as if I’ve worn the same winter outfit twice a week for the last month and I just need more warmer clothing options. I can only repurpose and layer my fall staples for so long.
So, here are the winter necessities I picked up using my Tanger gift card from my bestie!
First up, a new winter coat! My trusty wool pea coat is on its last leg and I wanted something a little more fashionable. All of the trendsetters have been rocking these army green coats with faux fur collars and I just had to have one! I found this one for a GREAT price at H&M.
H&M | Army Green Coat | $129.00
Next, a great pair of non-distressed jeans. This is critical come winter time. While I love the roughed up look, my holy jeans aren’t the warmest options in my closet. Banana Republic Factory has a ton of jeans on clearance right now. Hurry in before they’re all gone.
Banana Republic Factory | Boyfriend Denim | $59.99
On clearance for $24.99!
Then the given, sweaters! Like I said, I seem to repeat the ones I love regularly. Quality is really important. You want them to be warm and last. Sweaters can be an investment, so look for ones that you think you’ll wear year after year. I think neutrals are the way to go.
J.Crew Factory | Textured Turtleneck | $88.00
I also picked up these super cute booties! I was still wearing my open-toed favorites and well, it was time for a warmer upgrade. These came in taupe (grey-ish) and black. Guess who got both! 🙂
Banana Republic Factory | Suede Booties | $99.99
On sale 30% OFF for $70!
Last but not least, I needed to upgrade my winter accessories! Look at these adorable scarfs, beanies and mittens all from H&M. They have such a wide selection of styles, it was pretty tough to pick out my favorites. You definitely don’t have to sacrifice style for warmth with these finds.
H&M | Fringe Scarf | $17.99
H&M | Cotton Mittens | $5.99
H&M | Knit Beanie | $12.99
