Hippie Vibes

Happy Hump Day babes!!!
I can hardly believe we are passed Thanksgiving and just so close to Christmas time. It’s finally hitting me today, as December 1st is tomorrow!!!! And not to mention my bank account officially hates me after all the Black Friday/Cyper Monday sales!! I cant wait to get all the goodies in the mail to share 🙂
In other news, my weekend was nothing short of amazing & exhausting! We made our annual camping trip to Bonham, TX. With little to no phone service, perfect fall temps, and of course pitching a tent with a snoring hubby!! We always have a great time just being together with friends and drinking around the campfire. The kids have a blast!
I am having a serious love affair at the moment with flares and fur, and am in love with this little hippie combo. It’s a perfect mix of hippie, funky and boho all in one outfit! These jeans are beyond comfy and stretchy for all the holiday grub. I snagged this vest last year and I am still obsessing over it. The white one is sold out but there is a grey option here. I paired it with one of my favorite blouses for a boho vibe and hippie feel. And of course, you have to have the floppy hat to complete the look!

Cyber Monday Guide & Sales

Happy Cyber Monday, everyone!
I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with loved ones and lots and lots of food. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and even an better long weekend full of camping with family and friends. It was a little crazy and busy but so worth all the memories! I binge-watched Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: Year In The Life while simultaneously online shopping yesterday. And of course, put the finished touches on our Christmas decor around the house.

But, its back to reality before the Christmas crazyness!

Today, I am rounding up some of the exciting Cyber Monday sales and codes from so many of my favorite stores. There is one piece of advice I will give as far as the best time to shop. The busiest time for shoppers is between 9-10am est. In order to snag everything you are wanting, I recommend shopping early!

HAPPY SHOPPING!!!!! 🙂

Holiday Gift Guide & Black Friday Deals

If you are anything like me then you are super psycho about Black Friday! Once Thanksgiving lunch/dinner is over, I am putting on my fat pants, grabbing my “sippy cup” and grabbing the hubby’s credit card 🙂

Yes, I do agree stores have been a little crazy opening so much earlier on Thanksgiving Day than normal but I spend the entire weekend with family. Being such a short week anyway, I am with a 3 year old most of my time so I am ready to get out of the house by then. Usually me and my mom are out the door by 7-8pm ready to tackle the crowds. The real crazies are usually cleared out by then anyway 🙂 I have done my annual Black Friday research for the best deals and have given you all the details. We usually try to hit up most of these stores for their great deals but sometimes there just isnt enough coffee to keep your eyes and body running 🙂

December Fashion

Wow! We are almost through our first full week of January and first work week of the year! It feels good to be back in routine mode and getting the year started. I start to get super ancy pants when we are out of routine and there is no plan or agenda. Trust me I love long, much needed breaks but I am so used to routine and structure it gives me anxiety when there is no agenda 🙂

Back to reality and back to keeping up with my weekly outfit recaps. I love sharing outfits and awesome deals and steals I find with you. As far as trends and styles, I love a little bit of everything. I LOVE mixing prints and pairing different colors and pieces together.  My outfits consist of comfy/casual to sparkly/blingy and a touch of southern/edgy. I made these up as I dont really have one favorite style but I try to change it up everyday!

Here are some of my favorite outfits from December:

pink

I wore this during some Christmas shopping. It was still in the 70’s in Dallas so there wasnt much need for anything warm yet. Obsessed with cowboy boots and wear them with everything!

Kimono: Francesca’s

Top: Forever 21

Leggings: Target

Scarf: Charming Charlies

Kate Space cup: Swoozies (Dallas)

green

Top: Forever 21

Scarf: SheInside

Shoes: Target

casual

It actually was pretty chilly this day for some more Christmas shopping! This was Christmas eve so I was sporting my “Best Day Ever” mug from Starbucks!

Tank: Old Navy

Cardigan: Nordstrom Rack

Jeans: H&M

Scarf: Old Navy

Shoes: Target

sweater

This is the most comfortable sweater I have ever owned! I found it at Charlotte Russe during a Christmas sale for $20! I have linked it below…. And my clutch was a super find at Old Navy during the Christmas sales for $10!!!  (Please excuse the messy bun, this was the result of a screaming toddler not wanting to go shopping)

Sweater: Charlotte Russe

Leggings: Target

Clutch: Old Navy

Shoes: Steve Madden

I am hoping to continue sharing my outfit inspiration and all of the goodies I find every week.

I would love to know what trends and styles you are loving right now?

Our First Christmas Card

I am so excited to share our very first family Christmas cards!!! These are actually our first EVER professional family pictures together…. Yes it only took 6 years 🙂

We had them done before Thanksgiving and I am so glad we did because I actually ordered them over Black Friday. Vista Print was having a Black Friday special and I actually got 50% off an entire order + 100 free 4×6 prints. WIN!!!! Sometimes timing is everything and this was the perfect time to order cards. They are actually still having cyber deals going on through the weekend so if you are needing to order cards or prints I would take advantage NOW!

Here are some of my favorites from our photoshoot:
