December always gets me in a red mood, especially the deep reds. I just feel like it’s the perfect color to celebrate the Christmas season. I wanted to share my red finds to help you put a little pep in your step this holiday. 

O-Ring Zip Back Plaid Wrap Skirt

Red plaid is always great but this skirt will help you be more festive, I just know it! Get it for $19 from Shein.

Maybe you’re not trying to dress up too much but you just want a comfy & cozy jacket to wander around in… this one’s for you! The inside has faux sheep fur to keep you warm 🙂 Get it from Bohme for $54.50.

Everyone needs a casual and comfy red sweater in their arsenal, especially for the holiday season! This super cute one is from Piper & Scoot and you can get it for $48.

Halogen Alexa Boot

If you like to dress in all black like I do, then you’ll probably want a red boot to make it pop. This cute bootie is from Nordstrom!

York Puffer Coat

I’ve really gotten into coats and jackets a lot this year and it’s hard for me not to want to buy all of them. This cute puffer coat is perfect for a casual winter day and is screaming your name! Get it from Poppywells 🙂

Again, with all the black I wear, it’s really nice to have a red scarf to finish the outfit. This cute long scarf is $19 from ASOS.

Holiday Dresses

With the holidays coming up, that means lots of parties so I thought I would give some ideas on fun party dresses! This year, Adam’s work party is formal and I was excited to go looking for a new dress. I looked around online first and then went to the mall with Michelle and her sister to check it out.

This was my first pick that I found at Ann Taylor. I’m always a big fan of lace. It says it’s an online exclusive but the store had it. You can find the dress here. It’s a little bit more expensive but their stuff holds up and it’s 40% off right now! I’m waiting for the store to price match me right now because I knew it would go on sale.

The lighting isn’t great but you can see the detail of the lace in the picture above. I think I’ll add a pop of color with some jewelry or a good darker lipstick.

Here are some other options I found at Ann Taylor that are also 40% off.

I don’t love velvet on me but on other people, it looks really good. This dress was pretty in person. Find it here.

Find this beauty here.

Sequin Sheath Dress,                        Main,                         color, MAROON

I’m dying over these sequins! I wish I had a good occasion to wear this to. Find the dress here.

I love an excuse to dress up so I had fun looking around at all the dresses. Shop early so you aren’t stressing at the last second and quickly need a dress!

Have a good weekend!

Gray Mood

I’m a really big fan of grayscale colors. Maybe it’s because dark colors hide all your insecurities and make you feel like a thin & slim goddess. Anyway, gray is one of those colors for me. I love it. I thought I’d share a mood board for all your gray needs!

Journee Collection Vally Bootie

Vally Bootie

A gray bootie is always necessary to have. It’s such a classic color and can really class up your outfit. You can’t go wrong with extra zippers either. Steph has a pair of gray booties that are to die for so I need to get on her level. Get this baby at DSW for $54.99!

Gibson Cozy V-Neck Top

Cozy V-Neck Top,
                        Main,
                        color, HEATHER GREY

V-necks are hard for me sometimes because I’m a little bustier so there’s a fine line between a good v-neck and showing off more than you need to see. Whenever I find a great v-neck, I love it for life. I like this top because the V isn’t too low but it still looks cute and comfy! Get this at Nordstrom for $49.

Curvy Skinny Corduroy Pants

If you’re into the whole corduroy thing right now, these are the pants for you. Everyone will want to touch your legs (if you let them, of course). These are pretty dang cute! You can get them from LOFT for $39.50.

Save Me a Dance Dress

Maybe you’re just looking for a cute heather gray dress to twirl around in. If you are, this one’s for you! It’s a comfy dress that can be dressed up or down. You can get this ‘lil cutie for $35 at Pink Lily Boutique.

CL by Laundry Studio Flat

Studio Flat

I’m a big fan of flats, especially pointed toe flats!! I feel like they’re so slimming and flattering on everyone and they always give you a polished look. These flats have a cute scalloped vibe to them to make your outfit look that much cuter. Get these from DSW for $40.

Oversize Fringe Scarf

product

It’s getting super cold outside and you need a scarf so get this one! Pair it with a black leather jacket and you’re golden. You can get it from Gap (the Gap?) for $20.

Super-Long Open-Front Duster

product

I love dusters! I always feel like I’m a really important person when I wear them. I also like whipping it around but that’s just me. Anyway, they’re super comfortable and gives an extra oomph to a t-shirt and jeans. Start out your collection with this duster from Old Navy for $40.

Faux Leather Moto Jacket

You’re cool. I know you’re cool. Because you’re cool, you need a leather jacket. And you’re in luck, I just found you one. Fitted leather jackets are the best. This one is a pretty gray from LOFT and you can get it here.

Cozy Camp Socks

Cozy Camp Socks in Heather Grey - main

I love nice socks, especially in the winter. Marled socks happen to be my favorite to wear around the house (I’m not sure exactly why but that’s the way it is). Therefore, I think everyone should have a cute pair of marled socks and I found the perfect pair for you. Get these for $9.60 from Hanna Andersson.

Nike Dry Legend Hooded Top

main image

If you were in the market for a cute hoodie for your workout (or for lounging around like I would use it for), I found this little baby. I really like Nike clothes because they’re super comfortable so treat yourself with this $40 hoodie at Macy’s.

Go a little gray crazy this month and branch out from the colors!

Steph’s Favorite Places to Shop

I thought I would share my favorite places to shop for clothes lately. I’ve been trying to be good about saving money because I want a new car soon so I have to limit myself somewhat so that means not shopping too much. Sometimes I can’t resist though!

Michelle and I work for a more conservative company and their dress code is “business professional.” My go-to store for work clothes, as you probably guessed already, is Loft. I love their cute tops and pencil skirts. They’re currently having a 40% off sale for friends and family! As I’m writing this, I’m trying to tell myself not to look through the site. The thing to remember with Loft if you’re looking at some of their prices is that they have sales so often that I very rarely will buy anything full price there. Wait for the sale. You can also find some great stuff at their outlet.

I also really love to shop at Nordstrom. Years ago, before I started shopping there, I always thought they were too expensive. Sometimes I would find things at Nordstrom Rack but I didn’t seek them out. After I started reading some blogs, I realized they have some great sales too and you don’t always have to spend tons of money. They always have free shipping and returns too. Their customer service is so great that I will keep shopping there just for that.

A couple years ago, I had ordered a dress and a skincare product from Nordstrom’s website and when it was supposed to be delivered and I hadn’t seen the package yet, I noticed on the order that it had gone to my old house by mistake. I called Nordstrom with low hopes of anything being done because it was obviously my mistake and they were so nice and just shipped me out new products to my current address. They acted like it was no big deal but to me it was huge! Nordstrom is well known for having some of the best customer service.

If I’m looking for more casual clothing to wear when I’m not at work, I love Mindy Mae’s Market. I know I’ve posted about them before but their clothes are so cute! Everyone needs one of their double hood sweatshirts. I wish they had sales more often. They also won me over with their customer service. I had bought a vest from them on a sale and a few days after I ordered, I got an email saying that the vest had been restocked with a slightly different vest. They sent me a picture of the new one just wanting to make sure I still wanted it and to make me aware it would be a little different than what I thought. Unfortunately, I decided not to keep the vest because it wasn’t the color I wanted but I really appreciated them reaching out like that.

I’m currently drooling over this top since I saw it on IG. I love stuff that looks like you’ve put more effort into it than you really have like with these layers. I’m also a sucker for stripes. Give me all the striped tops!

Those are probably my top places right now. I will branch out every once in a while but I really like to stick with companies and brands I know I won’t be disappointed with. Sorry that was really wordy with only one picture but check out their websites and see what you can find!

Outfit of the Day

Good morning!

I was inspired by Michelle’s post about mustard yellow and by a post by Sheaffer Told Me To and bought this outfit! Loft was having a sale recently where everything was 50% off plus free shipping and I couldn’t resist. Loft is my go-to store lately for clothes, especially for work.

I thought this outfit was so fun and the skirt is not what I would normally wear but when I put it all together, I loved it. My sister actually got the same outfit too!

Excuse my squinty eyes as it was very bright and a little windy.

You can find the top here and it is currently 40% off! This will be great as well with some dark jeans and cute flats. You can’t see it in the picture but the back buttons down. I realized when I got it in the mail that I actually have this shirt in a mint green too that I love.

The skirt is a great mustard color. It’s not something I would’ve picked out normally but I’m glad it got me out of my comfort zone. I love the big pockets and the tie waist adds a cute extra touch. It is also 40% off right now! I think this outfit would be great when it’s colder with some black tights and I have some cute black wedges. The skirt is actually a little thicker than you would think so it’s perfect for fall and winter!

My flats I actually found this summer at Nordstrom Rack but I found them on Nordstrom’s website here. I actually have them in nude as well and they’re a great comfy flat. Sam Edelman shoes will hold up too so sometimes spending the extra money is worth it.

 

Mustard Yellow Mood

Fall is here and I’m so excited! It’s my favorite time of the year. Fall in Utah is gorgeous because the trees are all different colors and it’s rainy, dark, and cloudy. One of the best colors you’ll find in fall is the mustard yellow color on the trees. It really makes everything pop! Just like in nature, mustard yellow is a great color to wear in the fall. I used to hate yellow and I never owned anything this color but I fell in love and now I have three tops.

I wanted to share some great fall pieces of this color that you could get right now to complete your outfit!

Tie Back Pullover Sweater from Charlotte Russe

This pretty thing is only TWENTY BUCKS so you can’t even make up an excuse not to get it. I love the tie back detail. Get this baby here.

Steve Madden Trace Studded Mule

La La Lady Dress from Ivy City Co.

La La Dress

One of the best things about colder weather is long-sleeved dresses! This buttery velvet dress is perfect for fall and will make you want to twirl around to your heart’s content. It’s $62 and I doubt it’ll be in stock for very long. Get it from Ivy City Co. here!

Fern Print Maxi by ROOLEE

For you tall hotties that can pull off maxi dresses, this one is perfect! I love the floral pattern and the ruffled hem. This one is available from ROOLEE and you can get it here for $44.

Your closet will thank you for adding a cute pop of color!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

We both looked through the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to find our favorite things to show you. Early access to the sale started this morning and things are already selling out. You can get early access if you have their credit or debit card. It’s totally worth it just for the sale. I got the debit card a few years ago to help control purchasing so I get all the Nordstrom points to get the $20 notes and then get early access to the sale.

Steph’s Favorite Finds

I found a couple great items and one that I’m excited to try on and see if it gets me out of my comfort zone. I’ll definitely be asking for Michelle’s opinion on this one. I’ll show you it first. It’s a moto jacket with a hood you can remove. I’m interested to see the quality of it in person because it’s not real leather but sometimes that still looks just as good. I could see it being great to wear out on a date night in the fall with some jeans and cute booties. You can find it here.

moto jacket

I didn’t buy these booties but last year on the sale they had a very similar pair that was by Vince Camuto and I got those. They’ve held up amazing and are worth every penny. I get so many compliments on them. The main difference this year is that the pattern is a little different.

booties

I have a pair of tall black Hunter boots and I love wearing them on a rainy day or even if it snows. I have crazy hot feet so I can wear them in the snow with no problems. I was drawn to these boots and I can just see myself wearing them with some skinny jeans and it will look great. I’m so excited to see them in person. Find them here before they sell out!

Hunter boots

You can see the other Hunter boots included in the sale here.

I love Zella workout clothing because you can tell it’s high quality, it fits well and it still breathes nicely. I was tempted to buy more of the leggings but I refrained, for tonight at least. They have tons of the leggings and sports bras included in the sale. You can check them out here.

For the past three years, the sale always has Clarisonic brush head refills and I didn’t see any this year. It almost looks like they don’t carry any Clarisonic stuff anymore. I was pretty bummed about that because it’s always a great deal.

Clinique also has some really great deals right now if you’re looking to stock up on any of their lotions. I’m definitely buying the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion set and the Clarifying Lotion. Mine are starting to get low. See the stuff on sale here.

I know a lot of people find Nordstrom to be expensive but they have lots of great sales and it’s really good quality products. I like to watch for the sales and then buy the stuff quick because they sell out. Nordstrom always has free shipping and returns so I never feel guilty for buying only one thing. One time, I ordered a dress and a skincare product and sent it to my old address without realizing it. I didn’t have the new homeowner’s contact information and I didn’t see the box on the porch. I called Nordstrom to see if I could track any info down and they were so nice and just shipped me out the products again for free. I couldn’t believe it but those types of things make me a Nordy for life.

Michelle’s Favorite Finds

Again, I have Steph to thank for getting hooked on Nordstrom. She’s really good at finding great deals and super cute stuff so of course, I wanted to be just like her! Ever since we became friends, we’ve been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale together.

This year, I found a couple things that I’m super stoked about!

Screen Sh

I’ve been wanting this duffel bag from Sole Society for a couple years now and I had no idea it would be on sale until I was looking last night! Isn’t it beautiful? I was going to get it in a brown cognac color but I love this faded brown more. I can’t wait to use this baby on weekend trips. You can find this bag here.

Screen Sh2

I was drooling over these cute Nikes so I had to get them. I thought they were sold out for a second because the website wasn’t letting me see anything when I would click on them and then, lo and behold, this screen popped up and I was able to buy them. Aren’t they soooo cute?? You can get these here.

Just like Steph, I am hooked on Zella, especially their sports bras. They don’t have my favorite in the sale this year but here are some others that are on sale! They’re so worth checking out. You can find them here.

If you don’t have a Nordstrom debit or credit card, you need to have one to shop the Early Access sale! Otherwise, you have to wait until July 20th for the Anniversary Sale to open to the public. But beware… some of your favorite deals might be sold out by the time it opens!

Steph and I will post some pics of our finds once we get them!

What great deals did you find this year?

Earring Obsession

I’ve always loved earrings but recently, it’s become a full-blown obsession. This obsession stems mainly from the fact that I just binge-watched TV Land’s Younger and they have the most KILLER earrings (not to mention, it’s a great show).

Because of this, I thought I’d share my recent earring finds so that you get a great start as well!

I’m a big fan of studs because they’re the easiest way to class up an outfit without necessarily bringing out the big guns. I always love getting new ones! The ear jackets on the right are a recent find from Target (aka Heaven). I tried to find the link on their website for you guys, but I couldn’t find it! Must have been a ‘meant-to-be’ find in store. The CUTE bow on the left is from Charming Charlie. It came in a pack of other standard studs but I had to have them for these little babies.

Processed with VSCO with oc preset

These are the Two-Tier Fan Earrings by BP. You can find these at Nordstrom or by clicking here. These are perfect for spring and summer styles!

Processed with VSCO with c3 preset

These are the In The Loop tassel earrings and I got these from böhme boutique. You can find one of their locations in store or shop online here. Fun fact: I LOVE shopping at böhme! They have the cutest clothes and accessories.

Processed with VSCO with c3 preset

Finally, these are a pair of elegant rose gold earrings from Charming Charlie as well! If you haven’t been, you HAVE to. Their entire store is color-coordinated (meaning it is an organized person’s dream). Stop by with a color in mind and you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for.

I’ll keep sharing my favorite earring finds! If you have any I should try, please share below!
