outfit // the blues








A quick post with a new outfit and to say I hope you all enjoyed a beautiful Thanksgiving!

I was so glad when Cooper & Ella reached out as I had admired their pieces on Piperlime for quite some time. The pieces are feminine with great detailing like the back zipper on this blouse. I paired it with a cozy and affordable coat from BB Dakota and a favorite pair of booties.

Have you hit the sales yet? Have a wonderful weekend!

merry shopping // the best of sales right now


Happy almost Thanksgiving and happy sale season! This year I’m excited that most of my favorite stores have already started their sales pre-Black Friday madness which means I’m already getting plenty of shopping in from the comfort of my bed (and SANS crowds – win/win if you ask me).

I went ahead and rounded up the best of the sales that are going on NOW and will have an update for those that start on Friday so be sure to check back post-Turkey induced coma. So check out the below (for many of them I also included items I have recently worn that are now on sale and also pieces that are my favorite picks of the sale).

Hope any of you that are traveling arrive at your destination safely – it’s now back to the kitchen for me to figure out how to make a pumpkin pie from scratch (insert Kevin McCallister face here!)
