Holiday Wishlist + Black Friday Sales

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

After your belly is full and your family time is over, it's time to gear up for the biggest days in shopping that we see all year...Black Friday & Cyber Monday!

Below is a round up of my personal holiday wishlist. I always have the hardest time telling people what I want for Christmas, but this year isn't a problem. I want so many things. Is that bad? With our upcoming trip to Tahoe, I need items that will keep me warm and cozy & when it comes to beauty additions or anything that sparkles...sign me up.

So, here we go! Let's gooooooo our PJs!!!

FYI...Most of the online deals are EXACTLY the same as the ones in stores and there aren't many differences in Black Friday sales vs. Cyber Monday deals.

Another Way

how to wear a zara tartan blanket scarf

Yes, I am wearing "the" tartan Zara blanket scarf that has been seen on almost every blog, Instagram and pinned Lord knows how many times. I still love it and all the other oversized scarves that I own. You can take a peek at my other posts wearing them here and here. 

I have been playing with alternative ways to wear and style this ever-so-popular accessory and wanted to share the idea with you guys since you most likely own one too. Instead of wrapping or tying the scarf, I chose to neatly drape it around my neck and sort of tuck it under my quilted vest. I opted to belt the vest and scarf to create a less bulky look and to keep both in place. The warmth of the blanket scarf is still there, but this option allows your neck to have a little breathing room.

PSSSSST...Here is a GREAT website with some of the BEST plaid blanket scarf options + some fun jewelry too!

This is a perfect Thanksgiving Day outfit, one for holiday family photos, travel or for Christmas day.

And yes, I am wearing my Spanx denim leggings and Vince Camuto (on SUPER sale) again. I just can't help. I finally found a pair of denim that do not lose shape or form after a few hours. I also do not have constantly adjust and pull my waist up to avoid sagging booty. The boots, well, they just speak for themselves and go with just about anything and everything.

Collegiate Prep

I posted an almost identical outfit here a few weeks ago on Instagram. This striped collegiate sweater was one of the pieces I chose for this month's Golden Tote (You can read more about Golden Tote here). It is currently available in their boutique. The entire style made me feel young I was back at Texas State studying for final exams. Okay, maybe not exactly, because most likely I wasn't wearing oxford shoes or a cute sweater. It was probably more like a sorority t-shirt, sweatpants and flip flops. Regardless, it was a fun look to put together and wear for a day of running errands.
