Super soft chenille sweater

This chenille sweater, you guys. So soft. I walked by it on a clearance rack at Charlotte Russe, it looked soft, so I reached out and touched it. Or the pink version of this sweater. I immediately picked it up.Then traded it for the blue when I realized I already have a soft pink sweater.  It was an additional 40% of the clearance price, so I got it for a little over $7. Score! I love getting a good deal on anything. Clearance racks are my jam!

This is not the first time I’ve walked by something made from a super soft material and immediately knew I had to have it. If it looks soft, I have to feel the softness. If it’s on someone I may even ask if I can touch it. Can’t. Resist. Softness. My poor soft kitties know this. They see me coming and run. Well, maybe not the bigger of the two kitties, she’s too lazy to run, but the other one does. They are softness personified.

Does anyone else do this with things that look soft? Or am I the only one? I can’t be the only one. Somebody out there also reaches out to touch soft looking things. I just know it.

It has been super cold this week, and for some reason, we ended up by the river in Troutdale taking these photos. Even colder there with the wind whipping down the river. I am so ready for winter to be over. Just say no to snow from now on out! March starts tomorrow and I’m asking the snow to please go away now. Spring is almost here. The time for snow is passing. Move along already.

Since this chenille sweater is on clearance, I’ve linked up a couple more that look just like it below.

Bejeweled off-shoulder knit top – #fashionfriday

This purple bejeweled top was definitely calling my name when I went to scour Kohl’s clearance racks to find something to use my $10 off savings coupon and 20% off discount. Coming in at just under $10, I had to find something else to go with it so I could use my whole $10 savings card. I found these soft olive green skinny jeans on sale for $10 as well. Armed with my savings card and discount that I pulled up from my e-mails on my phone, I headed to the registers. The grand total for this outfit was $8.16 – a savings of $89.84. Oh how I love a good deal!

The top is made out of smooth, shiny t-shirt material with shoulder cut-outs lined with big diamond-like jewels. How fun is that? On a side note, I wore this with my hair down, and kept having my hair get stuck in the enormous shoulder bling. But they are still a nice touch.

The jeans are so soft. They feel almost flannel like, they are so soft! My cats hair decided it really liked this material, so if you notice tufts of cats hair sticking to them, just know, no cats were harmed in the wearing of my fashionably furry pants. My cats just want me to remember them everywhere I go. In fact, sometimes if I lay my outfit out somewhere they can get to it before wearing it, they really like to lay down right on top of it. They just want their kitty mama to wear a nice soft kitty hair outfit – just like them – without having to turn into Cruella De Ville to get it.
