There's a trick to making smart shopping decisions. Are you ready for it? Pinterest.

This is how it works. Pin anything you like, then when it's time to go shopping look at those images and think about what you have selected. Do you gravitate towards skirts? Dresses? Bold prints? Distressed jeans? For me it's a lot of basics. Solid colored sweaters, dark jeans, and simple looks.

That is how I ended up buying this cream sweater. It isn't something that would have normally jumped out at me in the store, but I knew it was something that would be versatile in my wardrobe. Here I've styled it two ways, but you can bet you will be seeing it more and more this winter, because it has quickly become a closet staple.
