A cozy outfit for a cold Winter day! I try to avoid wearing coats as much as possible and doubling up on sweaters certainly helps. This is one of 2 turtlenecks I got for a steal at Boscov's back in October. I wear them around the house a lot but I think this is the first time it's been on the blog. Funny how that works, you designate something as"wear at home" so it never makes "real" outfits.

Also really enjoying the mix of teal, burnt orange and cream. Quite nice, yes?

Cardigan: Calvin Klein 'Eyelash Striped Cardigan', Turtleneck: Napa Valley Long Sleeve Solid Mock Neck Sweater in Dark Teal (Boscov's), Jeans: Free People, Boots: Audrey Brooke 'Mirie' (DSW),  Bag: Louis Vuitton Epi Leather Sac D'Epaule (HauteTrader), Sunglasses: Gucci, Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon)

I misbehaved this month and did some shopping when I was invited to a preview of the new Boscov's location in Milford! I got a couple sweaters and cute pearl Mickey earrings! It could have been a lot worse because they have such great deals, so I'm still counting it as a win.

I also bought a couple clothing items on my birthday trip to Disney. But I used gift money on those and am not including them in this update. I got an Epcot Food & Wine Festival tee, Toy Story Land sweatshirt and an Eve hoodie (I bought Christian the matching Wall-E hoodie.)

And I I FINALLY found my backup pair of Vince Camuto Davilla ankle boots on Poshmark. I had to buy them again because my current ones are dying after being VERY loved for 4 years. They've been all over the world and walked hundreds (seriously, at least 100) of miles with me. I used ad money that was just added to my PayPal. Perfect!

Last Friday I was able to attend a blogger preview of the newly opened Boscov's at the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford! Boscov's is a family owned department store and this Milford location is their 47th store. Boscov's is the largest family owned department store chain in the nation; selling clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry, watches, home items, bedding, and toys!

Our day started with breakfast and an introduction to the brand by Jim Boscov himself! He really loves his brand and makes sure that the stores all uphold the family-friendly values of the original store in Reading, PA. Boscov's aims to open one store per year with the reasoning that they take the time to find the perfect location and everyone at the company spends weeks preparing the co-workers at these new stores. They are also committed to the communities they have stores in and make sure to support local charities. At this year's grand opening they had a ribbon cutting ceremony with $100 bills and each one went to a member agency of the United Way of Milford and $1000 for the United Way.

The Connecticut Post Mall in Milford is currently in a redevelopment phase to revitalize the shopping center. In addition to Boscov's, they will also be opening a Dave & Busters, Muse Paintbar and Kidz Klub. Soon The Post will be your one stop shop for activities whether that's going to the gym, seeing a movie or shopping for anything you need!

The store is THREE packed floors of merchandise offering anything you could possible need or want. They have all the brand names you're used to in a department store at even better prices! No one is left out when it comes to clothing. They carry petites, plus sizes, kids, misses, adults, mens and they have an amazing men's suits section!

I walked out with a $29.99 cashmere sweater, $60 Mickey pearl earrings and two $5 long sleeve tees for Christian. In addition to those already low prices we were given a 15% off coupon and a $15 gift card for our purchases! Mr Boscov also treated us each to a pound of DELICIOUS fudge! I got dark chocolate and it's amazing! So smooth and only $5.99 a pound!  Unfortunately I had to return the tees I bought because they were too big and they didn't carry Smalls in the styles I bought. I also ended up exchanging the cashmere sweater for two sweaters (dark ruby and dark teal) that were only $9.99 each and just as soft, haha. I went back with my parent's and Christian yesterday so they could check out the store.

Make sure to head to the store this week to check out all their grand opening sales! In addition, Debbie Boone - of You Light Up My Life fame - will be performing daily at 2pm and 7pm!

The store also has an auditorium where they hold all sorts of classes and events. They even have a Melissa & Doug play area within the toy section!

And, if you plan on doing some holiday shopping, make sure to stop by the courtesy desk for complimentary gift wrapping on your purchases!

*I was invited to a preview of the store and received a 15% coupon and $15 gift card as compensation. I was not required to write this post but chose to because I enjoyed experience.*
