Holy moly, how is it already December? I have to admit, I’m really excited about this holiday season. It’s a time I cherish and love all the festive activities with close friends and family. This weekend I plan to put up the rest of my holiday décor, take Christmas photos and bake some cookies. Hope your weekend is wonderful!
The transition back to reality from a vacation can feel long and tough, but I’ve been trying to combat any post-holiday blues with hot yoga and decorating my house. Also with plenty of layers and coats. The best part about winter coats is that you can basically be wearing pajamas underneath and you still look completely pulled together. I adore this little peacoat, and for the record I’m not wearing pajamas underneath. Just a turtleneck.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! This year has completely flown by. I feel very lucky to be spending a few days in Marco Island with my Mom for some girl time. Now that the turkey comas have passed (or scallop and crab coma, for me) it’s time to shop those sales! I’ve already started shopping for a few gifts this year because these sales are just too good. So today I’ve rounded up of the best Black Friday deals for your shopping ease!
Gap has 50% off everything with code TGIF50. Gap is my go-to for comfy and adorable pajamas. My boyfriend can attest that I’m obsessed with these jogger pants. Softest ever. And I have this robe which is pretty much like wearing a cloud.
Ann Taylor is offering 50% off everything when using code CELEBRATE. I’ve been eyeing some classic work staples like this sweater and this houndstooth scarf would make a perfect gift. And I’m obsessed with this bow-back shift dress. (Hello NYE?!)
Athleta: 20% off your purchase with code BOOST Shopbop: 15% off orders $200+ with code GOBIG16 Madewell: 25% off your purchase with code THATSALE Anthropologie: 30% off with code LETSGO
Holiday parties start happening in full-force after Thanksgiving and it seems like dressing for festive events tend to follow a similar formula… Black sweater or dress (at least for me) with a touch of sequins or sparkle. But for more casual holiday get-togethers of exchanging gifts with friends over wine, I often want to wear something that feels festive and slightly more casual. So I’ve rounded up a few favorites and options for the holiday party season…
When I first purchased this camel blazer, I was on the hunt for a classic and versatile wardrobe piece and it’s been on heavy rotation ever since. Sometimes you’re just in need of something you can throw on and feel instantly polished when you’re having a wardrobe conundrum. Luckily, this blazer looks amazing with a plain white tee, striped shirt (here and here) or a printed blouse. Wardrobe riddle solved.
I’ll be heading to Marco Island this week for Thanksgiving, so follow along with my vacation adventures (and Black Friday shopping, let’s be honest) on Instagram! (@sharingmysole)
Each year when I plan my Thanksgiving attire, two words typically come to mind: No pants. There’s really no need for waist restricting pants when there are so many cute dress options. I’ll be in Marco Island for Thanksgiving, so I plan on wearing this dress or a breezy maxi dress while over-indulging on mashed potatoes.
They say all past fashion trends always make a comeback and I believe that’s the truth with this sweater. I wore this little argyle number to the office and then had the realization I had the same sweater in high school. We had a very flattering high school uniform which consisted of khaki pants and oversized polo shirts, so I made a daily effort of attempting to hide said polo shirt with a strong rotation of sweaters. And I’m certain I had a few argyle pieces in the mix. It’s all cyclical, people.
Wow, what a week. Clearly this was a chaotic and volatile past few days for our country and quite frankly I’m still trying to process everything. Even though there is so much negativity and divide circling, a reoccurring thought that continues to prevail is “what can I do?” What can I do to be a kinder, more accepting and giving person? What can I do to positively impact my community? If the only thing I can control is myself and my actions, then I want to show love and respect to others, always. I’ll definitely be taking the weekend to decompress and relax and look into volunteer opportunities in my surrounding community. Make it a beautiful weekend.
Whenever I try on a plaid shirt, my first question is always “Do I look like farmer?” quickly followed by “Do I look like a boy?” The answer is always no and no. I don’t know where my plaid insecurity comes from, because it’s such a perfect fall staple. I particularly like this one because it’s a slimmer, tailored fit that’s perfect for tucking in to high-waisted jeans. You can also give it a little front top knot tie instead of a tuck. Endless possibilities for a button-down.
