But seriously though, this day is insane. Not only is it chaotic and literal madness everywhere, but it’s just flat out silly. But on the other hand, to NOT take advantage of THIS day is a little silly as well. So in that case, I’ll partake in the madness and do my best to simplify your black friday chaos.

When putting together this post, I tried to put myself in YOUR shoes. What would be the BEST way to shop ALL the sales and get the most out of the time I spent shopping online. Because let’s be real, nobody has time to shop ALL day long. Or even if we do have time, is that really how you want to spend your day off? I didn’t think so. So I figured the easiest way to lead you through it would be to list the retailer, the deal they’re offering and then (in my opinion) the best STEALS that you don’t want to miss out on! How does that sound?! Ok great. Here we go….

….to be continued – I’m going eat some turkey ;)

Some retailers have decided to start their Black Friday craziness early. And we thank them for it because we can get a head start to all the madness ;)

First up, I wanted to note the sale going on over at Joie. Their stuff is a little pricey, but I will say that it lasts several seasons and is great quality. I wanted to point out a few of my favorites from their site right now and let you know that they’re having a SITE WIDE sale with 25% off until 12/1. Just use code THANKS at checkout!

And next we have another pricey (but awesome) brand, Alice + Olivia – they’re offering 25% off the entire site until 12/1 (no code needed). I’m DYING over that sequin pencil skirt and can already think of several AMAZE looks with it. It’s $390 and then 25% Off….and how pretty is that floral maxi gown?! Love it all, but her stuff is definitely an investment!

Next up is one of my absolute favorite places to shop – MADEWELL and they’re offering 25% off until 11/30 with code GIFTON. Yes, please! I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites from their website below….remember you can click on the products to click them ;)

Next sale I want to mention is Theory – they’re offering 40% OFF! Since like, forever, I’ve been a HUGE fan of Theory. But like many other higher end contemporary brands, their stuff is SUPER expensive. But rightfully so…because it’s SUPERIOR quality. I always snatch a few key items during this major 40% off sale – and they’re always put to good use. Last year, I bought 2 button downs that I wear all the time!

And then of course, I’ve got to tell you about the BIG Tory Burch sale!! See details below!

THEORY: 40% off until 11/30 (NO code needed)

I got home for the holidays (well, for Thanksgiving at least) last night, and I can’t wait (!) for all my siblings to get here! Fun/random fact: right now, my sister and I are the SAME age (we’re both 24)….until I turn 25 on the 29th (eeek! let’s NOT talk about that. Gosh I’m getting old!)

It’s so fun having a sister so close in age ;) and she’s actually the one (if you’ve heard me mention any wedding stuff over the past few months) that’s getting married on NYE. We are all SO excited!

I have a feeling we might be doing some family bonding over a little wedding “prep” (and stuff) while we’re all in town…I’m sure my mom could use some help! She not only hosting the wedding and reception at our home, but she’s also making my sister’s dress AND all the bridesmaids’ dresses AND shoes (yeah, I know. She’s super woman!)

I’m blogging from my iPhone right now because I’m actually sitting shotgun on my way home for thanksgiving :) it’s a long 7 hour drive from Dallas to Baton Rouge, but I find that waking up early and knocking most of it out in the morning makes it a little more bearable :) plus, it’s perfect for catching up on all my sermons (I listen to about 4 different churches. Ha! But I just can’t seem to narrow it down.)

I hope you had a good weekend! One of my good friends got married this weekend….the wedding was STUNNING. The flowers were out if this world….I wish I had photos! And it (the dance floor) SO much fun!

I hate that I’m so behind on all my gift guides and just posts in general, but hopefully you all won’t give up on me….they’re coming! I love making gift guides ;)

I’ve just been playing catch up at my “real” job AND trying to be more social since I’m still pretty new to Dallas. And all this leaves less time for BTD and for being on top of my game. Oh well, something’s gotta give I guess?!

Shop the Post

Poncho: Old Navy cowl neck poncho sweater (on sale for $27 PLUS get 30% OFF right now with code “EARLYBIRD”!!)

Turtleneck: JCrew tissue turtleneck tee – a GREAT basic; it’s super thin and probably couldn’t be worn alone but it’s great for layering!
(There’s a similar one right now at GAP on sale for $24 PLUS get 30% OFF with code HAPPY at checkout!)

Jeans: Gap 1969 – 40% OFF with code SHOP
these fit great! They’re a little low waisted but I love the stretch and the skinny leg!

Coat: Trina Turk Wool Wrap Coat (this particular one is sold out BUT here’s a similar one and see all wool coats here!) // Jeans: Genetic Denim // Shoes: Dee Keller – available in leather and suede

Yep, that’s right. I’m bundled up in the BEST deal I somehow managed to find over at NordstromRack last week. I know, I know. It’s one of those treasures that’s almost TOO good to share, especially considering the fact that this exact coat is actually available right now for FULL retail at $545. Don’t hate me, but guess how much I got it for? …$199 (eeek! I know!) I almost didn’t believe my eyes ;) And the funny thing is, I actually started admiring this coat last season when I saw it on someone in NYC…and mustered up the courage to ask her who made it. Anyway, you can imagine my excitement when I snatched it on Mah-hayyy-ger sale!

I love the feminine cut of this coat and am crazy about the oversized lapel (aka the big collar); it’s so ‘Olivia Pope’ and, like her, communicates such class and sophistication. And the length of this coat makes it just long enough to keep warm, but short enough not overwhelm (slash completely eliminate) the outfit. Wrap coats are ideal for this time of year because they’re easy to layer underneath and are perfect for bundling up tight to fight the cold temps – all the while looking chic as ever ;) For those of you looking to get started on your holiday shopping, I think a pretty coat would make a lovely gift ;)

PS: speaking of great deals, there are a lot of good sweaters up to 60% off I saw!

Thank you to NordstromRack for sponsoring this post. As always, ALL opinions and thoughts are my own.

Good morning!

So I’ve been sitting on these photos for a few weeks now….(oops! hence the long hair!) because I was trying to figure out the best time or “way” to include them in a post. I’ve been a HUGE fan of eberjey ever since I discovered them while in College – remember this post (wearing the sleep shirt) I did back in my Nola home?

Shop the post

Eberjey lace accent romper c/o – also comes in this print // Eberjey shorts PJ set (I added monogram myself!)

I figured that with the holidays coming and all the gift guides I’ve been doing, it would be fun to do a post dedicated to PJs because they really do make such a PERFECT gift. I’m obsessed (even that’s an understatement) with their classic ‘gisele’ PJ’s set and literally LIVE in them – especially during the cooler months!

If you’re looking for something special (and that she’ll actually use!), I recommend getting her something comfy and cute to sleep in ;) I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites in the collage below (click on the product to shop!)

and if you’re wondering about anything else in the post, I’ve created a little collage below (of course, you can click the products as per usual to shop!) for those of you curious about the additional items in the post!
