The Best Sale to Shop on Thanksgiving!



faux leather leggings // similar booties (pick the "black suede" color) // Michael Kors watch
leopard clutch (same designer, my tote is sold out), similar clutch but way cheaper here
Photos by Alicia White Photography (she's amazing!!)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I love wearing black on black… it's the easiest look to throw on when I want to feel confident, but don't want to put too much effort into my outfit! This Trouve sweater is my new all-time fave. Not only is it long enough for leggings, but it's SUPER soft and comfy… and comes in six different colors! In a few photos I'm also wearing this aztec print cardigan by Caslon. I talked about my love for Caslon earlier this week… it's one of the best sweater brands that Nordstrom carries.

And speaking of Nordstrom… they are having an amazing Black Friday Sale that actually starts today! The majority of products are marked down 49-55%, including Michael Kors watches, Tory Burch handbags and designer clothes. It's by far the best sale going on today so don't miss out!

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, turkey, tight pants (lol), football, and laughter. I am so sincerely thankful for each one of you that comes back to ready my blog each day. Happy Thanksgiving!

Black Friday Sales Have Started! (Tory Burch + More!)

faux fur vest (45% off right now!!) // Christmas plaid shirt // sequin party skirt // black tights
monogrammed necklace on SALE  30% off with code SPARKLE30
my curling wand I always use is HERE

Surprisingly, a lot of retailers have started their Black Friday sales early this year! I think the best one so far is the Tory Burch Sale because when you spend $250, you receive 30% off with code THANKS. This may seem like a lot of money, but most of the handbags and shoes are priced at more than $250 to begin with, so this is actually a great deal. Tory Burch riding boots (including the pair I have) are already marked down, so with the 30% off coupon they end up being HALF OFF. This is almost unheard of!!!

My picks are below (if the item has a heart by it, then I own it)… keep scrolling for some more early Black Friday deals!

From the top:
Tory Burch Perry tote (fits a laptop & more) // Robinson continental wallet // medium flap wallet
pearl drop earrings // Robinson mini pebbled tote in tan // Junction riding boot
Derby riding boot // Robinson medium flap wallet in grey // cable knit pom pom hat
Robinson mini square tote (comes in five colors!)

More early Black Friday Sales… I think the second best sale going on is Nordstrom (they are price matching) so check them out too. xoxo

Design Darling // 20% off with code THANKFUL
GAP // Early access 50% off everything with code EARLY

Dressy Winter Outfit + My First VLOG!

long-sleeve shift dress in maroon // similar faux fur stole // wool blend cape, similar here
Ivanka Trump over-the-knee boots, also love these // Celine bag, similar here
Michael Kors watch // David Yurman link braceletcuff bracelet
Chanel lipstick #145

Edit: Major holiday sales are going on right now - get 30% off on Tory Burch with code THANKS here & get up to 25% off on ShopBop with code GOBIG15 here. Happy shopping!

If you're looking for a dressy winter outfit, I absolutely love the combination of over-the-knee boots paired with a dress or cape. I wore this outfit several times while I was in Europe because I loved it so much! A couple of things you should know about this outfit: first, my over-the-knee boots are a dupe for the Stuart Weitzman ones, but mine are about $700 less! (They would make a great Christmas present.) Secondly, you can't see this shift dress too well because I have on a cape, but it's one of the cutest dresses I own. The burgundy color is beautiful. I have also worn it with a scarf & a faux fur vest!

In other news, check out my first VLOG below! (P.S. Sorry the camera is so shaky for most of it.) You can view it on YouTube here. I am not very good at doing vlogs, but they are fun! If you want me to make more of them let me know in the comments :)



P.S. I don't mean to make light of the Paris attacks with this post, Paris is still in my thoughts & prayers daily. It is truly one of the most magical places I've ever been, and I wanted to celebrate that today.

xoxo
