Jason and I hit West Towne Mall in Madison on Saturday before the snowstorm. I had some really good luck finding clothes, a huge improvement over the previous weekend’s shopping trip during which I proceeded to try on pair of pants after pair of pants without any of them fitting. I was a very unhappy shopper, and I love shopping 🙁 .
For the first time ever, I bought clothes at Eddie Bauer. A cute plaid skirt immediately caught my eye. I think it’s great for fall and winter, and it has a certain “outdoorsy” aesthetic.
At Eddie Bauer, I also found this incredible sweater. It’s casual, comfortable, and very “homey.”
We did make a stop at REI. I just intended to browse, but they happened to have some great sales on apparel. I found two North Face henleys just like the grey one I bought before Yosemite (which you can see here and here). I LOVE my grey shirt and was ecstatic to find the same shirt in a couple of other great colors.
I have always been drawn to what I’ll call the “L.L. Bean look,” but I have never really gone there. However, I think I’ve hit a place where this aesthetic is most appealing to me , based both on my new interests and, well, my age 😉 .
