I had a great shopping trip to TJMaxx today and came home with a pile of great stuff. Next I’ll try them on, make outfits, and decide whether to keep/return. I’ve been looking for more interesting sweaters in bright colors or light neutrals and toppers, among other things. I like the idea of toppers that are not traditional blazers.

For these two items in particular I would love to hear some YLF-wisdom about whether to keep/return. Both worn with jeans and shoes as shown in finds.

- Orange/grey/blush striped sweater. What looks beige in the find is actually blush. I absolutely love these colors together. The brand is Joie. I’m a little wary of stripes because I’ve had a few basic striped tops that I never wanted to wear, but this is very different. The model is called “Maine” which of course has absolutely NO influence on my decision

- Lucky Brand Tweed Moto Jacket. I have a similar one from Banana Republic that is a little darker, a little shorter, and quite a few years old, but is a real workhorse so I think having another one would be good. Also the older one is getting a little worn. This new one has a slight burgundy thread in it. New one find #2, older one find #3

I was not thinking of wearing these together but never say never

What do you think?
