Happy Thursday, all!! Are you all set and ready for Christmas next week? I can’t beleive it’s just a few days away and we’ll soon be entering a brand new year! Time sure does fly, doesn’t it? I still have a few last minute gifts to purchase and a couple more to wrap, but otherwise I’m ready! I think because we put our tree up earlier this year and I started listening to Christmas music the week of Thanksgiving, the month of December seemed kind of long.
I had mentioned in a previous post that one of my favorite colors to wear after Thanksgiving and all through December is red. I just love how bold and festive it is and even though I wear red throughout the year, there’s just something about this bright and sexy color in the month of December that really pops during the holiday season. Don’t you agree? What’s your favorite color to wear around the holidays?
Side note: My high waist skinny jeans are my absolute FAVORITE jeans. They’re so stretchy and extremely comfortable and I would highly recommend getting them if you’re on the hunt for the perfect black denim. They’re just under $80 and LOFT always has sales so make sure to snag them when you can!
Happy Cyber Week!! There have been so many deals this past week and it doesn’t look like the sales are coming to an end just yet. One of my favorite things to purchase during Cyber Week is outwear! I just love adding new coats and jackets to my collection and the best time to buy them is during Black Friday and Cyber Week or just after Christmas because they’re marked down quite a bit.
You can shop some of my favorite winter coats below including several similar faux leopard print options like the one I’m wearing above.
Can you believe we’re just a few days away from Thanksgiving?! Neither can I. Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday, but it’s starting to feel like it’s almost forgotten with all the Christmas hype already. We usually wait to put our tree up until the day after Thanksgiving, but I’ve been in the festive mood since last week so we went ahead and put our tree up yesterday. Last year we purchased a brand new Christmas tree so we were definitely looking forward to putting it up sooner than later. We still have to get a garland for our fireplace mantle along with a couple more items, but overall we keep it pretty simple with our holiday decor. How about you? Have you put your tree up yet or are you going to wait until this weekend?
Since I’m in the holiday spirit already, I’m sharing my first gift guide of the season with you and what better gift guide than a cozy one perfect for those days when you just want to lounge around at home in front of the fireplace.
It’s Just Another Manic Monday! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend! It’s cold and snowy today so what better day than today to share this edgy winter look which consists of my new faux fur leopard print coat I purchased on sale at H&M recently for $40!! It was right after Christmas and everything was marked down in the store and I just had to have it.
I’ve mentioned before that leopard is one of my favorite prints because it’s classic and can be considered a neutral. It can easily make a simple outfit pop, particularly an all black outfit. It can also be especially sexy against a pop of red; maybe I’ll put together a V-Day look for you and share it next week. I would highly recommend purchasing a leopard print coat to add to your wardrobe. I’ve found a few similar styles for you to shop below.
Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had taken a little break from working on my blog recently and so I finally shot some new outfit photos yesterday for the upcoming week after a two month break. It’s easy to lose motivation and fall out of routine, but I’ve learned in order to be successful in any hobby or job you’re doing, you do have to stay consistent and keep at it even on the days you really don’t want to. It is OK to take time for yourself to recharge when necessary though so don’t beat yourself up if you find yourself struggling to stay motivated. Life happens.
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite winter coats with all of you, the Marla Shawl-Collar Wrap coat by T Tahari. I asked for this coat for Christmas a couple of years ago after seeing a friend of mine wearing it and it’s one of my all-time favorite outwear pieces. I actually just received it in black this past Christmas because I’ve been needing a new black coat and I just love this style. The oversized shawl collar that drapes over the shoulders is what really makes this beautiful coat stand out. It hits just above the knee and has a wrap belt that cinches the waist for a fitted and classic look. It comes in several different colors, but the merlot is my personal favorite.
Macy’s, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s all have several in stock and in different price ranges. Bloomingdale’s carries it in black and mink and it retails for only $85 with their current sale!! Macy’s also has a winter sale and it’s just under $190 while Nordstrom retails it for $229. I know, what the heck?!! I’ll let you in on a little secret though. Most retailers price match so if you prefer one retailer over another, as long as they have the same size and color available as the store with the lowest price, they’ll honor that lower price. 🙂
