Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Hope you are having a wonderful day with family & friends!

Black Friday Deals:
At midnight, I will release my shopping sales & deals.
If you are headed out shopping (or staying in to shop online), check here for my sales & picks.

Christmas Party Ideas:
A few Christmas party ideas - mixing casual with dressy.  If you have a party that is not formal, and you want to be casual, yet dressy - these are fun options. And, this fun fringe skirt is 50% off!
(These looks are based off my shopping list where I am showing how one item from each group can be mixed in multiple ways.)

My Instagram Look


Shop My Look:
1. Sweater (similar here) // 2. Rings // 3. Lipstick // 4. Watch // 5. Boots (similar here)
6. Jeans (similar here) // 7. Pouch // Rug (similar here)

This is what I wore yesterday.  I saw a girl wearing a similar outfit a few days ago, and I thought she looked so chic, so when I got home I tried to re-create the look with an ivory turtleneck sweater, cognac tall boots, and dark denim.  
(My husband said I looked good - so it must have been a success!)

If you are wondering - I broke down and bought these boots in red.  I couldn't resist with my coupons & 50% off, I got them for a steal of $39! Now, I am thinking of all the different outfits I can wear them with.

What to Wear: Thanksgiving Day

thanksgiving day, dressy look, casual look, leopard pumps, boyfriend jeans, nordstrom, michael kors watch

DRESSY Look:
 
CASUAL Look:
7. Crystal Earrings // 8. Faux Fur Sweater  //  9. Red Bag 
10.  Boyfriend Jeans  //  11.  Leopard Pumps 

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year.  I look forward to spending time with family and decorating for Christmas.  This year I am trying to be thankful for all that I have.  This has been a difficult year - and lately, it has been easier to complain, rather than be thankful.

So, as you spend time with family and friends - and try to figure out what to wear - I have put together two looks - one more dressy and the other more casual based off my shopping list.  My plan is to show how one item from each group (tops, sweaters, jeans, etc.) can be mixed and matched for multiple looks - like this cozy sweater could easily be paired with the casual look and boyfriend jeans.  Plan to stop by each Tuesday and Thursday leading up to New Year's for help deciding what to wear this season.

One more style idea (not on my shopping list) but is oh, so popular is plaid (as seen in this post).
I love this skirt and my OTK boots.

Sales: 
All the stores seem to be bringing out the Black Friday sales early.  Here are just a few.  One of my favorite sales is Nine West and 50% off all boots.  (I just might have to get these - I have $45 in cash back - so these boots or these would be less than $50 - but I can't decide which ones - thoughts???)


Nordstrom Sales + Free Shipping:


Express - 50% off:


Nine West - 50% off boots (plus up to 50% on pumps):

Shop My Look:
Jacket: Michael Kors (similar here, here, and here - starting at $69)
Vest: Loft (similar here or here)
Blouse: The Limited (similar here)
Jeans: J Brand (similar here or here - on sale - extra 30% off)
Watch: Michael Kors (similar here)
Bracelet: Michael Kors (similar here)
Boots: Nine West (similar here or here)
Lipstick: Nars (Afghan Red)

These pictures were taken as the Acrtic Blast we had a couple of weeks ago was headed our way (as seen with my crazy hair - not sure what is up with it in a few pictures).  There was a cold breeze, so I layered up with my faux fur vest over my leather jacket.  I bought this faux fur vest three years ago at Loft - before faux fur was in every store.  I didn't have enough courage to wear it, so it sat in my closet for a year.  The next year I got up enough courage to wear it and have not stopped wearing it since.  It is so warm, and perfect for layering over a leather jacket in cold weather.



Thanks so much for reading!  Be sure to check back tomorrow as I mix-up a couple of looks based on my holiday shopping list that I shared on Friday.

What to Wear Holiday Parties & Giveaway







This is my holiday shopping list (either store or my closet).  I plan to take one item from each group and mix & match them for all different holiday looks - from Thanksgiving dinner, work party, dinner out with friends, New Year's, etc.  The idea is to show how one item from each group is all you need to create a lot of different looks.  So, check back every Tuesday and Thursday through New Year's as I mix the items above to make multiple different looks.  Hopefully, it will provide you with some holiday style inspiration.   It should be a lot of fun - and a fun challenge. (And, if you are looking for the for an ugly sweater party - be sure to check out these options.)

My Instagram Look

 Shop My Look:
1. Chunky Sweater: Forever 21
2. Watch: Michael Kors
3. Lipstick: Nars
4. Striped Turtleneck: Forever 21
5. Boots: Nine West
7. Jeans: J Brand

This is what I wore last Friday.  I layered a chunky knit sweater over a striped turtleneck. It added warmth - plus it added a little extra style.  I got both of these recently at Forever 21 for a steal.  I have really found some great clothes for a perfect budget price - definitely recommend checking out what they have - plus they are a fast fashion type store - so clothes are continually turning over.

Sweater for Less

These sweaters are very similar.  They both have a mock t-neck and cut-outs on the side.  
The one on the left is a fraction of the cost, and it is an additional 35% off - plus it comes in that new emerald color. Styling tip: if you are wondering what to wear with it - try skinny jeans or leggings (which are only $27 - and get great reviews), riding boots, and socks.

Tribal Print: Copy the Look

 Shop the Look:
1. Sweater: Soulmates (Only $49!)
2. Earrings: Kate Spade
3. Satchel: Ivanka Trump
4. Leggings: Hue
5. Boots: Steve Madden (here or here)

Hope you had a great weekend!

What are your thoughts on the tribal print, poncho, legging trend?  I think it looks comfy for winter but still dressed-up.  I have been looking into getting a pair of leggings - these get great reviews (over 1000 - 5 star reviews),  plus they are only $27.   I would probably wear them with my slouchy boots and either a poncho-type sweater or a layered sweater (like this one that is 40% off today) and a shirt (or even this cardigan or this one - both under $35!).

 Shop My Look:
Sweater: Halogen
Jacket: Victoria's Secret (old) (budget-friendly here, here or here
Cords: J Brand (old) (similar here - on sale $30!)
Boots: Ann Taylor (old) (very similar here)
Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (splurge here or budget here)
Watch: Michael Kors (old) (similar here)

Comfy, warm sweaters are something I look for for fall/winter.  I found this sweater recently at Nordstrom, and it is super soft and warm, plus it is washable - which is something I always look for in sweaters.  I do not want to pay extra for dry cleaning.  I recently tried J. Crew cashmere wash for a few of my sweaters, and it really worked well.  And, it smells good, too.  I got this leather jacket a few years, and I love that the faux fur collar is detachable - so I can wear it year round - and also, attach the collar to other jackets, like my denim one.

My Outtake:
Trying to get my hair just right...
