The holiday season is still upon us with the last few days of 2016 left to soak up. We had a wonderful Christmas holiday up north full of family and much needed R&R. We are still undecided on our New Year’s plans which also means I am undecided on what to wear. It all depends on the atmosphere and location, but this look is at the top of my list of options! Equal parts festive and comfortable- the perfect combination!
Christmas is just about a week away and we still have quite a bit of holiday shopping left to do. With a busy weekend of holiday parties and final errands to run before we head up north, braving the mall is not a viable option. Luckily online shopping is and I am taking full advantage! Many retailers can still guarantee your gifts will arrive just in time for unwrapping in matching pjs by the fire (that’s what we do at least!) If you are a procrastinator like me, you can shop the items I am gifting this year below:

Anyone else suffering from a holiday hangover today?! Back to real life after a glorious Thanksgiving holiday makes Monday just a little bit harder. Luckily the amazing sales aren’t over yet! Today is Cyber Monday and there are still plenty of great gift items and discounts to partake in. But the sales officially end tonight so make sure to take advantage while you can! All details, discount codes and favorite sales listed for you here:

Bloomingdales // 25% off regular & sale items
Urban Outfitters// $50 off orders $150+ or $15 off orders $75+
Target// extra 15% off all orders
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, friends and lots of yummy eats! Holiday shopping is now in full swing. I personally have a love/hate relationship with Black Friday shopping. I love all the deals and discounts, but can’t handle the crazy crowds in store. Thank goodness for online shopping! You can get the same deals or even better from online sales. Its the best time to get an early start on gifts for others and to snag items for yourself at great prices!
Nordstrom is one of my favorite stores year round. They have the best customer service and return policy. I’ve rounded up some my favorite pieces, most of which I own and love that are currently on markdown for Black Friday! There are so many great items at an additional 20% off the sale price now until Sunday. Also, listing all the other amazing sales currently going on & discount codes below! Happy Shopping!

Thanksgiving is days away and I am more than looking forward to it! The last two months have been non-stop with wedding planning and life in general. I’m pretty sure this is exactly the same thing I said in my last post, but this is real life so I have to keep it honest. The holidays are just that much more special this year with our engagement and lots of 2017 babies to celebrate. There is nothing better than soaking up a day full of yummy eats and family.
Hope your week is going well! I have admittedly been a little MIA on the blogging front recently. Between a demanding full time job and my new 2nd full time job (wedding planning!) I have found it difficult to find the time to dedicate to getting posts up! Hoping things slow down a bit soon! Thanks for sticking with me during this BUSY time
Last weekend my whole life changed. Adam and I are now engaged! While it was a long time coming, I was genuinely so surprised when he got down on one knee and asked me for forever. I dreamt of this moment for years and it felt so surreal in the moment. I still look down at my beautiful ring and can’t believe I’m not dreaming.
We are heading out of town for the long weekend and I cannot wait. We will be visiting our old stomping grounds, Austin,TX! The bf lived there for 3 years (long distance can work people!) and we both miss it dearly. I always feel like I should have been born in the South! It is still scorching hot in Austin, so I will be packing for summer weather! The perfect occasion to fit in some final summer looks!
The Fall season is fast approaching and with it fall fashion- hello September issue! Just because stores are filling up with boots & sweaters doesn’t mean it is time to put away summer staples just yet. During this pre-fall transition, I love to incorporate lightweight fall items like this bell sleeve top in a pretty fall hue with my summertime go-t0, denim cutoffs.
Happy Friday loves! I wanted to start a new series where I will be sharing my favorite finds of the week. Since Forever 21 is one of my go-to places to shop, I decided to make this week’s post about budget friendly Fall transition pieces. It is still so hot here, but as the Fall fashion starts to hit stores I am already getting excited for the cooler months ahead. It may seem too early to start buying sweaters, but now is actually a great time to stock up before it cools down and things start to sell out! I found so many cute ones along with lots of other great pieces you can wear now! Hope you enjoy this post & let me know what you think of this new series or anything else you want to see more of here!
Thanks for stopping by!
