You may remember a navy ruffle skirt from last year I wore in this post and as part of my Winter Workwear Capsule Wardrobe?  Well, the skirt is back for the outlet version this year, and available in several colors! I have loved wearing this burgundy one, and I may still be a little tempted to buy this houndstooth one or the faux suede. I've paired it with this sweater I've now owned for 9 years! That's right, I bought this sweater in 2009, during a back to school shopping trip for my sophomore year of high school. It is 100% cashmere and has worn quite well! I found it at a Polo Ralph Lauren outlet, so the best part is that I only paid $30 for it! Gotta love a good outlet find, this sweater still sells for $180 retail. Even for that full price, I think cashmere is worth an investment! On the other hand, a piece I thought would last a long time but have not held up very well are these over-the-knee boots. The next pair I buy will have a drawstring or elastic panel along the back. I bought this pair during the Nordstrom sale last year, and the elastic that goes above the knees was unfortunately wearing out by the end of winter. If anyone knows of a pair that comes in a size 5.5 and under $150, please let me know!

Thanks for reading!
