Black Friday Haul 2016

Image
This year I didn't get as much as I think I usually get for gifts, no one will tell me what they want and I seriously am having trouble coming up with anything to get them!! Also, most of the gifts that I have managed to get I have ordered and haven't gotten them yet. So, here is what I got this year on Black Friday and most of it was to update my winter wardrobe and will be featured in outfit posts in the next few months.

First I went to Target because I wanted this red knit blanket to add to my Christmas decor that I knew was on sale at Target for only $10, You can find this super cozy blanket here.

Then, I went to Old Navy and went a little crazy...everything was 50% off and I basically used that as an excuse to go a little crazy!
I got these EXTREMELY soft black fleece pajama bottoms, which you can find here.

 These sweaters a so great! I already had two of them and decided to get these three other colors. You can find them here.

 I got this super soft and cozy top that wi…

Snow Day Essentials

Image
Happy Monday!! Today I am actually having a fantastic Monday as I have a snow day! So, in honor of my first snow day this year, hopefully with more to come, I put together a few of my snow day essentials. I have been enjoying my day wrapped in this sweater blanket drinking hot chocolate...wishing it was this Starbucks hot chocolate, from a cute mug similar to this one and wearing my favorite slippers! I could not ask for a better Monday morning.


Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration

Today I am sharing some things that I think would make great outfits for Thanksgiving this year! I just ordered a few of these pieces as well and cannot wait to share my outfit next week! I'm so excited for the holidays this year, I'm usually super happy and all, but this year I'm ecstatic! I have been decorating and Christmas present shopping and writing everything in green and red pens. So, here are my top pieces for Thanksgiving!



1 - Grey booties, these ones are super cute from Macy's, but just in general I think any booties would make a super cute outfit addition!

2 - Flowy lace up dress, this really pretty dress is from Old Navy and is a great price! I love patterned dresses for Thanksgiving for some reason they just seem so perfect for this holiday.

3 - Gold Tassel Necklace, I am obsessed with tassel necklaces and this one is totally on my wishlist!

4 - My Go To Jeans, all year round these are my go to's when I want pretty classic looking jeans, so surprise I…

Dinner with Friends

The other day, when it was still light out at 5pm, I went out to dinner and had delicious gluten free crepes! This the outfit I wore, pretty much my go to for fall, a long sleeve shift dress with over the knee boots, paired with my new favorite Michael Kors tote for a pop of color! I added a statement necklace to dress it up a little more. I have also got my nails done in this bright fun color!
