I think I’m still full from Thanksgiving and it’s Tuesday… We had more of a Thanksgiving weekend full of eating since we were in Nashville, so this week is cracking up to be a huge struggle. It’s also the end of the work “year,” so just add that into the mix. I’m working on some other posts, including a 48 hour guide to Nashville, but I thought I’d pop up a nice outfit blog post, featuring this Endless Rose Off The Shoulder Sweater that has recently been restocked in all sizes.

Happy Thanksgiving Friends! My belly and heart are full of food, holiday cheer, and wine – just how I like it. First off, I am so thankful for many things – my life, my dad and extended family, Bryan, loving friends who are the family members I have chosen, and so much more. Of course, I am thankful for all of you who read my blog, look at my pictures, comment on my posts and Instagram, and who just CARE. It sure makes a girl feel special. I wish each and everyone of you a blessed Turkey Day. When I get sappy, I just babble, so let’s move onto some shopping.
Can you all believe this week is Thanksgiving?! The Holiday season is truly beginning and after coming back from Disney World (See my IG pics here), I am totally ready for all the festivities coming up. B and I are traveling down to Nashville (our first time!) to meet up with his Dad. This is the first time I won’t be at “home” for Turkey Day, since we are renting a house down in Honky Tonk Country, but I know we will make the best of it!
Since we won’t be at our home base, I can’t hit up the local Target or mall to see the craziness of Black Friday shopping. I usually go out more for the novelty of seeing people fight over TVs. My idea of Black Friday shopping is sitting in my PJs with some leftover pie, scouring the online sales. Friday is our day to explore Nashville, so I am hoping to do some shopping late Thursday night!
Speaking of Black Friday deals, Lauren James, a brand I met this past Summer at TBS Con, reached out to me to preview their Black Friday “Your Day Just Got Better” Mystery Box. I adore the preppy style of Lauren James and am so excited to share this great gift idea with you all. The box is $40 and you don’t know what you’ll get in it, until it arrives at your door. The total retail amount of the box is around $300, so at $40, it’s a total steal! All you have to do is tell them your size. Below, I’ll show you some of my favorite items from my personal box. For reference, I got a Medium in everything. I got a total of 7 items, including 2 outerwear pieces (shown below) and 2 great tees for lounging around.
Free People ‘So Obviously Yours’ Bell Sleeve Top – On Sale! Also available in white and black
Topshop ‘Jamie’ high-waisted jeans
Valentino Rockstud Pumps – great dupe here and here
I LOVE a good bell sleeve, and honestly, who doesn’t?? This groovy trend has been back in style for the past couple of seasons, and I love all the great sweaters and tops. I have had my eye on this Free People ‘So Obviously Yours’ Bell Sleeve Top for the longest time, and when it went on sale, I had to snag it! The top is on the shorter side, which is fine for my non-existent torso. Plus, I think it balances out the ultra long, flared sleeves. The sleeves are super unique and have a bow detail that falls right above my elbow. The bow cinches the sleeve in, for a flattering look. I am usually an XS in Free People, but due to my bicep muscles (yes, I have rather large bicep muscles) I went up to a S so that the clinched sleeve wouldn’t cut off my circulation…
Loft fringe tweed shift dress (super on sale!)
Manolo Blahnik ‘BB’ pointy toe pumps
Work wear for me is a daily struggle. It’s what I wear the most, so I need to make sure I look good in whatever it is! But I just cannot myself to spend a ton of money for work clothes. Especially when I can use my $$ towards bags, shoes, and oh so many other fun things! After a little over 2 years of adulting, and in the true style of this blog, I’ve put together a work wardrobe mixing low-end and high-end pieces. To do this, I’ve put together a list of must-have staples. These are the items you will constantly wear and mix and match with other pieces, so they should be good quality and you can afford to splurge a little.
