Black Friday Deals!

I’ve rounded up the best deals I could find online, because I don’t think anyone waits for Cyber Monday anymore! Whether shopping for yourself or someone else, there are some great deals this year! I do most of Black Friday shopping for myself, however I do tend to stick to the ‘classics’ or ‘closet workhorse’ products these days. My husband wants running shoes. My family wants ‘nothing’ – so that’s always interesting haha. So, I have to get creative and usually takes me til the week before Christmas! I love to find products that will work for both winter and right into spring. Red and pinks always work this time of year – perfect for the holidays and right into February for Valentines Day! I also love to scope out any ‘new arrivals’ that will work for both winter and spring. Think warmer/rosy tones that aren’t quite pastel, but also aren’t heavy on the holiday colors.

Kate Spade

My first big find was 40% off these Kate Spade satchels! I usually treat myself to a nice bag on my birthday. It’s been a tradition, but this past year I had purchased a few Target and Sole Society bags (which I feel good about since they are vegan), but I’ve really wanted to a nice structured bag to carry that’s fresh and new. These Kate Spade bags caught my eye right away since they are a classic design. They come in 3 sizing options and multiple colors! I fell in love with the ‘frosted spearmint’ color (bottom left). It’s a beautiful hue for winter and spring. That specific color is available in the medium and large sizes – I ordered the medium.

Casual Outfit: Vegan Leather Jacket

I’ve been on the hunt to add ‘unique’ things to my closet lately – whether a sweater in a pattern or style I don’t have, jeans in a cool color, or a ‘leather’ jacket that I’ve missed finding in my closet since we moved to Florida 4 years ago and I purged all the warmth! #jokesonme #inthe40stonight

My only purchase so far during all of these Black Friday sales (crazy, right?! – it’s the reason I haven’t posted much lately!) is this vegan leather jacket from Express. I’ve had this sucker on my wish list for 2 years I swear, and right now everything is 50% off everything at Express if you are a rewards member (it’s free)! It was a no brainer to order this right away. And I added the sweater and scarf to my cart and called it an outfit. ☺️ This jacket comes in several color options and there is also a non-peplum version available here.

*sizing: I sized up on the jacket for layering (I’m wearing a size medium), but if you have no plans to wear a thick sweater or zip up the jacket fully, your normal size should fit fine. I usually wear petite tops and ordered the regular size in the jacket. The sleeves are a tad long, but not enough to return or exchange. However, if you can’t decide and normally wear petite tops, I would go with petite for a cleaner look.

Friday Favorite Flatlays

Time for another Friday roundup! I’ve been posting a lot over on Instagram lately (here), with a mix of flatlays and #ootd photos. Some are new items, some are just my regular everyday outfits (that might not be that exciting haha) – I figured I would pick the top 4 flatlays for the week and share with you! My flatlays always feature at least one new item and how I styled it with new – and mostly old items in my closet – so they are usually an IG favorite! As always, if the item is older, I will find the best similar option out there for you to create the same look! 🙂

Fall in Florida

Our fall weather has finally arrived in Florida! However, I know it’s at the expense of the freezing cold weather up north, so maybe we can just share a happy medium together soon. 😬 Today’s outfit is a flatlay come to life! It’s the perfect outfit for our 50-60 degree breezy, cloudy days. Florida winters are very similar to weather in early fall up north. You start the day out needing layers, and by afternoon the sun might come up and warm everything up. I have probably 10 vests in my closet along with 3 baskets of scarfs, and that’s pretty much my winter uniform on my days off work. It’s so easy to just peel off the layers and stay comfortable all day.

My sweater is available in 5 color options and is on sale! It’s actually a 3/4 length sleeve, but fits me almost as a normal sleeve would. I usually take petite sizing, so note the sleeves will be likely fit you as a normal 3/4 fit if you have a longer torso. My booties are also on sale and fit TTS!

Sunday Wish List (… on Monday!)

Hi guys! I’m a posting a day late here from my norm for my start of the week wish list. My style has been all over the place lately with this weird ‘heat record’ and now a few days later it’s 30 degrees in the Florida panhandle. However, it’s still 72 degrees this morning where I live (south Florida). I think we need to move 3 hours north. But not farther, otherwise I will freeze to death! 😆 I’m so happy our temps are finally beginning to dip a little. Our ‘winter’ doesn’t ever really start til December anyway, but all of these are on my wish list! The color block sweater, jeans, and scarf are all still 50% off through today and the teal green sweater is 40% off!
