Gold Sequin Tunic Dress





OUTFIT DETAILS

Although I believe sequins are always a good idea, the span of time between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve seems to be the most socially acceptable time to wear them. And since we happen to be right in the middle of that timeframe, I thought I'd bring out my new sparkly sequin tunic in the middle of the day; in the middle of downtown Oklahoma City. My rule with sequins is to clearly keep the rest of your outfit very minimal. I rarely even accessorize when I wear sequins. Maybe that's why I like wearing them so much -- because I am just not a big fan of accessorizing.

This specific tunic dress has quickly become a closet favorite simply because of its quality. As you know, sequins are quite delicate and a lot of garments that include them can fall apart after a few uses. This one has a soft interior lining and the sequins are all sewn flat so you can breathe easy (and dance a little longer) knowing that they aren't going anywhere fast.

Louis Vuitton Alma Handbag









Bag // Beanie // Sunglasses // Scarf // Coat // Top // Jeans // Boots

Have you ever fallen in love with a luxury designer bag, but you didn't have the funds or justification to purchase it? This is an everyday occurrence for me. Don't judge... I'm working on it. But when I do get my heart set on one and actually save up for it, they are typically the only thing I end up purchasing at the retail price. This is due in large part because I never realized I could actually purchase a luxury preowned bag (think YSL not Tory Burch) in new or mint condition for less than the retail price. So you can imagine my surprise (and my wallet's panic) when I discovered Trendlee.

To be brief, Trendlee offers a vast range of luxury handbags at really great price points. I've always dreamed of owning a Louis Vuitton Alma handbag in the multicolor monogram since Jessica Simpson carried them back in the MTV Newlywed's day. So when I saw the price (about 60% off aretail) I had to take a chance. The bag arrived a few days later and looked brand new! I could honestly kick myself now for the other Louis Vuitton bags I own that I paid full price for. Oh well, you live and you learn!

P.S. If you love the Gucci Soho Disco bags as much as I do, they're on major sale here too!

BLACK FRIDAY SALE

Wish List + The Best of Black Friday

Hi friends! First of all, can you believe it's already the day after Thanksgiving? Time is going by so fast. Our entire Thanksgiving went by so fast! We had all of these big plans to go on a bike ride, help my parents get their Christmas tree out of the attic and decorate it, play a soccer game with Brady... but before we knew it, it was 7:00 PM and we needed to get the kids home and to bed. My mom and I looked at each other and said "well, what did we even do today?" Ha! 

Above is my wish list for this year - and absolutely everything on it is on sale today! I've done this for a few years on my blog now and I love it because my husband actually sneaks a peek and gets me a few things from it. But aside from being selfish, I hope it also helps with gift ideas for you or your loved ones! I'll link everything above directly below. And can I also just point out that the peach bellini gummies above are absolutely incredible?! They also come in a rosé flavor. You've gotta get those! Perfect stocking stuffer. 







Also, because it IS Black Friday, I've listed ALL of the online + in-store sales going on today! Some actually go through the weekend too so be sure to check out the dates I've listed in case you aren't ready to pull the trigger yet! I'll be snuggled up in my pajamas all day today so I'll be sure to update this post in real-time as I hear of any new sales. 

Happy shopping!

Most Wanted: Lace-Up Sweater







 OUTFIT DETAILS

(Everything pictured is 25-40% off too!! Follow the links for discount codes on each site!)

Trend alert! This lace-up sweater (under $30) has been spotted EVERYWHERE. So, I had to grab one of my own to see what the fuss was all about. The verdict? I was pleasantly surprised. I'm normally wary of cheaper sweaters, but this one exceeded my expectations. It really feels like it comes from a good fabric family, it's soft and comfortable, and I just love the neckline. I've never been a huge fan of wearing jewelry, so I love when clothes have a little extra pizzazz, making it unnecessary to wear jewelry for fear of looking too gaudy. 

I'm wearing the sweater rolled up and billowed out here, but just so you know, it does unroll and it actually falls down over the booty. So it would be a perfect top to throw on over leggings. 

My coat is (sadly) from two years ago - the color anyway - but it's still available in several other great colors. I personally love the camel color. This is by far my favorite winter coat so I think in a few years I'll pick up a neutral color. It's definitely worth the money - and it's also 40% off right now!






Before we left Classen Curve, I asked my husband to take a picture of me to post on Instagram. My poor husband. Anyway, I liked the picture he took so much, I decided to post it here too! The color makes my coat look orange, but it's clearly a super bright neon pink!

Have a great Wednesday! I'll be back tomorrow with a roundup of Black Friday sales!

Sleeveless Knit Tank





OUTFIT DETAILS:
Top // Jacket (identical versions here and here

So, I turned thirty earlier this year and it was something I had really been looking forward to. I loved my twenties and I can say whole-heartedly that I lived it up during that decade of my life, as one should. But, after having two little ones and becoming a full-time soccer mom, I knew I was totally ready to embrace my thirties. Not that I'm boring now or anything (I kind of am).

With age comes wisdom and a few things have happened this year that already make me feel older and wiser. The most notable of these is the subtle maturation of my wardrobe. I don't know if it's my subconscious or just a completely natural transition, but my style is absolutely growing up. I will always love brights colors, and there is a great big walk-in closet in my heart for all things sequin, but I now see how great outfits can be with simple colors and basic staples. And unless you're a millionaire, raising two kids isn't cheap, so stocking your closet with great staples can really extend the life of your wardrobe.

Now, if you believe in serendipity, you'll love this story. I connected with a fashion designer based in NYC shortly after my 30th birthday named Toni Hacker. Toni is such an inspiration - among a million other things. She understands what women go through every morning when they get dressed. We're busy, we're taking care of everyone around us, and yet, we still want to look good (and feel good about how we look) when we can. She gets it. She's been working in the fashion industry for years and so after all of this time, she decided to blaze her own trail and create her own line for women like me. Her clothing line is called Thacker and it's a collection of 67 modern essentials that you can mix and match together to create over 600,000 different looks. In her words, "it's designed to be the hardest-working 10% of your closet that you'll reach for daily."

***

I love this smog-colored knit tank because it's so buttery soft and a perfect layering piece. I know I'll be reaching for this tank quite often to wear under big cozy sweaters and long cardigans. If you want the layered look of a turtleneck, but don't want to get too hot indoors, this is your piece. It comes in a navy and black too! Check it out here or at the link above.

And when you have a moment, check it all out and let me know what you think! P.S. You will definitely find a sequin tunic and a gold moto jacket (that's on sale!) in the mix! You know I had to get my hands on those as well. More to come on that!

Great Eight: Off-the-Shoulder Tops


One / Two / Three / Four / Five / Six / Seven / Eight

I am just completely in love with off-the-shoulder tops. I don't know what it is about them, but I've always love baring a little shoulder. I'm always on the lookout for new tops and sweaters to add to my growing collection, so I thought, hey, why not share what I'm scoping out with you! 

If you've found some great off-the-shoulder tops, let me know about them in the comments below!

Rainy Day Style















When you wake up in the morning to rain or dreary overcast skies, it's easy to throw your cute outfit plans to the wayside. I've been there many times and I'm sure you have to. It's normal. So away goes the colorful cashmere sweater and leopard high heels, and out comes the gray polyester jumper and those faded black flats that you don't mind getting ruined in rain puddles. Sound familiar? 

Well, that's not going to happen in my closet anymore, because I'm outwitting the weather with the help of the brilliantly British brand Joules! It's about time the rain stopped raining on my fashion parade! To be honest, I've developed a great big crush on Joules in recent months and I'm really excited to be able to introduce them to you. Their Right as Rain collection is incredible and something you've got to check out for yourself. It was created solely to help you battle the elements in style with a great selection of eye-catching colors and prints in waterproof fabrics. Plus, several pieces have great hidden details that make them incredibly functional.

Take my rain jacket for example. The standing collar actually houses a hidden adjustable hood that I can pull out in the event of a downpour. See the long zippers on the sides of the jacket? Those unzip to create side vents which allow a little more movement and airflow.

And how cute are my rain boots? I fell in love with the bright pink ribbons on the back. I love the height of these because they are much easier to throw on and go. My other rain boots are much higher and sometimes I feel like a waddling duck in them. Do you know what I'm talking about? Anyway, these feel much more like actual shoes - perhaps it's the sturdier sole. If you happen to just like taller rain boots, the good news is, these come in other color combinations and heights too!

In addition to the Right as Rain collection, Joules offers adorable sweaters, scarves, vests, etc. - for the entire family! I love their selection of striped shirts, especially the shirts mixed with florals for women. My emerald green turtleneck and blanket scarf are just two examples of how cute the rest of their offerings are. Okay so what are you waiting for... go shop the full collection at joulesusa.com
