Currently Craving: Elbow Patches

I don't know what it is about elbow patches, but I want anything and everything that has them on it.  They turn an ordinary blazer or sweater from drab to fab and if I was more of a DIYer, I might try and transform some (all) of my bland old sweaters myself.  But despite my best intentions (and several Pinterest boards), I lack the patience and skill for any sort of DIY project. So instead of attempting to be crafty (and ultimately ruining my sweaters), I have scoured the internet for the best elbow patches for all budgets.  Check out my picks below, and let me know which are your favorite!  Since I sadly can't have them all, help a girl prioritize!

  1. My favorite of the splurge is the dark navy blue J.Crew sweater, and my favorite of the steal is the dark green TJ Maxx sweater with the buttons down the back! Also, may I include another option: - though this seems to be out of stock :(
    I have found one similar: - definitely a splurge!

  2. Haha! It's funny that you mention elbow patches today--I just gave my mom my Christmas list, and one of the items was "anything with elbow patches." I totally get the obsession!

  3. This is another recent trend I can take a pass on (like the critter sweaters). Reminds me of an old man sitting in his favorite chair watching tv lol! But I have to say I've seen many people embrace this trend and look FAB doing it. If I did choose any it would be #6 from Macys. Looks comfy enough and I like the buttons down the front. Anything grey is my friend!

  4. Thanks for stopping by and giving your thoughts!! Still so hard to narrow it down!!! xoxo Danielle

  5. Love it - great minds think alike ;) xoxo Danielle

  6. Omg you are too funny!!! I love that you have your own opinion and don't just jump on the bandwagon because things are "in style" <3
