Pom Poms and Tassels? Check!

I had my eye on this Kate Spade pom pom sweater for months, but I never pay retail for anything Kate Spade because their prices are a bit steep. Plus, everything inevitably goes on sale, so I had to wait a little while to get it. The waiting payed off because I was lucky enough to get this sweater not only on sale but also with an extra 25% off, which, according to my husband, was still too much to pay. Regardless of his opinion about the price, this is a piece that I felt I would get a lot of use out of, so I reasoned that my purchase was totally justified!

I actually wasn't sure if I'd be able to wear this these colorful pom poms until the fall, as it's technically a sweater, albeit a light one. Luckily for me, we have a thing here in Los Angeles called "June Gloom" and last weekend provided some overcast weather and cooler temperatures that were just perfect for a light sweater. I paired my multi-colored pom poms with an equally colorful tassel bag and my new check mini skirt that was a steal from the J. Crew Factory. The under $20 price tag of the skirt, which is what it ended up being when I purchased it in store, helped to make up for the steep price of the sweater. Considering that, the cost of everything seemed to have balanced out, or shall I say "checked" out, in the end!
