One of my favorite lines from the show How I Met Your Mother is when (a pre-#metoo) Barney Stinson calls a plain-looking secretary “eye broccoli.” I use it myself all the time now, but of course never referring to a human being. Today’s pick for Budget Thursday is pure eye broccoli. Not to contradict Marie Kondo, but not everything in your closet needs to “spark joy.” Sometimes you just need to put work-appropriate clothing on your body and not have to put too much thought into it. I like that this sweater is plain but comes in a variety of colors, and looks thin enough to throw a blazer over if need be. Throw it on, match it with pants, you’re done. It is $29.99–$35.99 at Banana Republic Factory, depending on the color selection, and comes in regular (XS-XXL) and petite (XXS-L) sizes. Sweater Polo
