Happy Black Friday & I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends!

Holiday Home Decor

  

IMG_5430.JPG

Happy Thanksgiving Week! Today I thought I'd give you a peek into my holiday decor. Harrison does not allow me to put up a Christmas tree until after Thanksgiving (I would literally have a Christmas tree up year round if I could), but I absolutely LOVE how cozy holiday decor is and I love to keep it up (except the tree) from the beginning of November, all the way through February!

I've never been one to do super traditional red & green decor, and especially now with the color scheme in our house. I LOVE color and have it pretty much everywhere so bright red and green is not happening with my blue rug and pops of blush. One of my favorite ways to change up my seasonal decor is with pillows. I found these amazing tartan pillows at TJ Maxx (I love adding tartan around Christmas time, also found these fur-trimmed ones) that pick up the blue of my rug and also add in some warm colors. Then I paired them with these red wine velvet ones (I also just found these from H&M for only $12.99!) and left my other neutral pillows that I have on my couches year-round.

For my garland, I like to do a different theme in each room. I had so many questions on Instagram about where I get my garland and how it is so thick. I think I got it at Michael's or Hobby Lobby awhile back, but the trick is twisting two strands of garland together to make it extra thick, and adding the lights once it's up. Yes, much more of a hassle than pre-lit strands, but looks so much better!

In my living room I added cotton sprigs (I cut up 2 sprigs into little stems and stuck them in) to the garland, and in my entryway I added these gold pears. I mostly keep my mantel the same, but added a boxwood wreath and some gold candles.

I love this wreath from the Hearth & Home collection! I put it in my kitchen and another one in my dining room hanging on a mirror.

These candle holders in my dining room (don't judge my unironed table runner, y'all) are also from the Hearth & Home collection. I love how you can fill the bottom part so they are perfect on your table year-round. Right now I have boxwoods in there, but for Christmas I can do Christmas tree sprigs, pinecones, berries, etc.

This was my first year doing wreaths on each window outside and I've always wanted to, especially since our house is white with black shutters. I've always thought that looked so classic and pretty around the holidays! It was also way easier and less daunting than I thought. I just got wreaths, attached a velvet bow to each, and then hot glued this burlap stripe ribbon to hang them with. I hung them through the top of the window and shut it closed to stay. All in an hour's work!

The best part? All of my holiday decor is under $50! Shop it all ::

You Guessed it... Another Cozy Sweater

   

IMG_5462.JPG

Happy Thursday! One week until Thanksgiving! If you missed yesterday's post on what I'm wearing for Turkey Day, just click HERE to read.

Y'all, I have a serious problem and you can probably tell if you've been following along for the last few weeks. I can't stop, won't stop with the cozy sweaters. This is the last one I'll be sharing with you (at least for a few posts) because I feel like I need to send some content your way that doesn't involve cozy sweaters... or maybe I don't?! Maybe you love them just as much as me and can never have enough? Just let me know. 

This sweater screams fall. The colors are perfect for the season, I love the slouchiness and softness of the chenille fabric, and it's easy to throw on with anything from pixie pants to yoga pants. I pretty much love every sweater Free People has ever made because they are always SO comfy cozy. I love that this one is on the lighter weight side, so it's super versatile. They also make this in fun bright colors and I'm kinda convincing myself I need it for cooler spring/summer nights.

This sweater has already sold out at a few retailers, so jump on it if you want it!

What I'm Wearing for Thanksgiving

   

thanksgiving 2017 outfit.jpg

What? Two blog posts in one day?! I know, I know... I'm feeling a super productive streak as the holidays approach next week and I'm trying my best to create as much content for you as possible! Today I am sharing what I'm wearing for Thanksgiving, because if you're stuck on what to wear, it's not too late for some inspiration & ordering! My Thanksgiving attire will be a little different this year, because I'll be in Palm Springs, California. Nevertheless, it's supposed to be cooler at night there so I didn't have to modify my outfit too much, but I'll share what I would change if I were dressing for cold weather too. 

I LOVE this skirt. It's metallic but not TOO metallic - almost like a soft sueded with metallic flecks. Under $100, this is perfect year-round and especially around the holidays. 

Since I'll be in the desert, I'm wearing these velvet slide sandals. If I were home, I'd be doing my black suede booties or otk boots. 

Depending on the weather, I'll most likely wear this lace-trimmed short-sleeved top and possibly my black leather jacket. The most important thing to note is that you have to do a half tuck in the front... just tuck the front portion of the shirt in and let the rest fall over in the back. 

If I were home, I'd most definitely be wearing one of these wrap bodysuits... So easy for wearing with skirts (no fussing!), SO soft and very flattering wrap shape. 

For accessories, I love these festive ribbon-wrapped hoops. Everyone knows I love a good pop of color, so I could also go with something bold. These are amazing and they're on sale! Burgundy is also a perfect pop of color for Thanksgiving. 

Liketoknow.it Tutorial

   

Happy Wednesday, y'all! Today I thought I'd pop on and address something I've been getting tons of questions about lately. So many of you say you want / try to shop my posts on instagram, but don't know how. A lot of you also say you are signed up with LiketoKnow.it, but it's not seeming to work for you. Today I'm going to show you step-by-step how to register, shop each post, and where to shop all my posts even if you don't have Liketoknow.it. 

LiketoKnow.it allows you to "like" a photo on instagram, or take a screenshot of it, to shop the items that the person is wearing. Whenever you see me post a photo with a liketoknow.it link included, it means you can "like" or screenshot this photo to get all the outfit details! Then, you can visit the link OR open your liketoknow.it app on your phone to shop. This is however, only if you have an account and everything is linked up correctly! Here's a step-by-step of how to register, make sure your instagram account is connected, and shop outfits via the app or online.

1) REGISTER WITH LIKETOKNOW.IT
visit https://www.liketoknow.it/ and click "SIGN UP" in the upper righthand corner.

Once you're registered, you'll see your dashboard. You can select from the dropdown MENU in the righthand corner to click on "My Likes" if you already have an account and have liked photos in the past that you want to shop. OR, this will be empty if you've just signed up.

Now, it's time to download the app! Go to the @liketoknow.it instagram page and click the link in their bio to download the new app from the app store.

Once you've done these steps, you should be ready to shop! From now on, simply screenshot or "like" any photo to shop the outfit details. Then head over to your liketoknow.it app and you'll see the photo there, ready to shop. 

If you don't always do this from your phone, you can ALWAYS shop my outfits right here on the website by clicking the "SHOP MY LOOKS" tab! (just make sure you are registered with liketoknow.it - you don't need to do anything else)

Perfect for the Holidays : The Lace Midi Dress

  

IMG_5301.JPG

Happy Monday! I can't believe how quickly November is flying by. With the holidays fast-approaching, I thought I'd share the perfect dress for all your holiday occasions. You've seen this trend sweeping through blogs, magazines etc. over the last couple months and I decided to give it a go myself. I am usually not a "midi" length type of person because I feel like it can be unflattering, but I love the way the lace overlay is see through so it's not necessarily cutting you off at the middle of your calf. Plus, the neckline & waist are flattering on just about anyone! 

IMG_5303.JPG

This dress is perfect for so many occasions - Christmas parties, cocktail parties, weddings, a night out at the theatre, fancy girl's night, fancy date night, New Year's Eve, the list goes on and on. I paired it with my favorite leather jacket to make it a little bit more edgy / casual, and you could also put a fur stole with it, a cozy wrap, or even a blazer. 
 leopard pumps | bracelet | earrings

The Self-Portrait version of this dress is a major splurge at $500, but lucky for you there are SO many lookalikes out there, like the one I'm wearing. I've found this dress at all budget points, in SO many colors (I especially love the burgundy for the holidays!), at different retailers; ranging from under $25, up to $100! So if you've been wanting to try out this trend, I've got them all linked at the bottom of the post.

Happy Holiday Shopping!
Later this week on the blog, I'll be sharing my holiday decor, favorites from Magnolia's Hearth & Home line, a Like to Know it tutorial for those who've been asking, and what I'm wearing for Thanksgiving. Stay tuned!

Loft | 40% off EVERYTHING picks!

Happy Friday and happy S A L E  day! 40% off everything at Loft and this is one of the best ones yet because there are so many new arrivals that I am swooning over. Sometimes when they have these sales, I won't do a post because they don't have much that I really love. Today is the opposite! I'm sharing what I bought, and what I wish I had bought here. So happy weekend & happy shopping, y'all!

How cute is this plaid top (I love plaid that's feminine and the neckline and sleeves on this one accomplish that. Plus, it's tunic length so can go with leggings!)? I paired it under this sweater that I have been eyeing for awhile and WAITING for it to go on sale! (I got an XS in the sweater - it definitely runs big) It can literally layer over anything and I love the color and the sleeves

IMG_5258.JPG

My windowpane LBD that I shared on the blog the other day is also a part of the sale, so if you're looking for a great fall LBD, you're in luck! 

I also picked up this white dotted top because 1) it is a great basic 2) great for layering + holidays and 3) it's one of those pieces that you'll get complimented on and when you tell them it's from Loft, they'll say, "seriously?! It doesn't look like it! (which is a good thing...!)

Another thing I picked up (I wish I'd taken a picture of it on, but here I am in my pjs and well, I'm just too lazy) is this black sweater dress. You know I'm all about flattering, easy sweater dresses and this one is amazing. It really is SO flattering, the material is the perfect weight and I love the 3/4 sleeve with a slit. Perfect for layering! I sized down to an XSP because it was a little long on me (I'm 5/5"). 

I LOVE this herringbone skirt and think it would be amazing with a black sweater and black tights + over the knee boots! 

This blanket scarf would make a great gift for yourself or someone else this season.

This green sweater that has been a go-to this season and I blogged about a few weeks ago is also part of the sale!
