Happy Thanksgiving + Pre Black Friday Sales!

Black Wednesday Friday starts earlier every year, doesn't it? Still, I can't complain that online retailers are allowing us to get-our-shop-on from the comfort of our homes - and when I say "homes" I really mean "pajamas" ;) 

With so many retailers offering online discounts, it almost doesn't make sense to do BF any other way. So, in the spirit of staying warm (and staying sane) I've curated a round up of the most up to date Black Friday sales.

You can click the retailers names below to be directed to their sites. Or, if you need some gifting ideas, be sure to head over to my Pinterest page where you can check out all my Holiday gift guides, which I'll be updating throughout the season. BTW - Stay tuned to see which retailers will be releasing their sales on the REAL Black Friday (tomorrow).

I must admit, I get sucked right into wearing dark colors, when the colder months come around. (Case and point.) Honestly though, I've been turning to a neutral palette for a while now. There's just something about a mostly earth toned closet, that makes it easy to mix and match your favorite pieces. For example, this cape + turtleneck sweater dress + leather leggings + OTK boots.

Each piece, alone, are some of my favorites and can be worn with so many other pieces. But, when you put them together, something magical happens. 

By the way, is everyone ready for Thanksgiving?! This cape may be the perfect touch to cover up the copious amounts of stuffing I plan to inhale. ;)

I'd love to hear some of your favorite Holiday traditions in the comments below!

Btw-I'll be posting the most up to date round up of Black Friday sales tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Cozy Knits

Lately I can't get enough of cozy knits. I literally have to talk myself out of snatching up nearly every one that I see. (Am I the only one?!) But alas, with colder temps rolling in to stay for the next few months, you really can't go wrong with stockpiling them for the season.

This sweater is quickly becoming my favorite Winter piece. It pairs so well with so many different outfits, and is beyond cozy. Best of all - it's only $35!! I used to have a strict rule about not pairing brown with black, but lately, I can't get enough of the combo. (Remember, fashion rules are made to be broken!)

Likewise, these boots are probably one of the greatest investments you could make this Winter season - and if you need to see a few reasons why, head here and here.

I'm all about the gray, bout the gray, no color. Ok, kidding - but seriously, I feel like I never wear any color! That's fine by me though, because a earth toned pallet allows for more mixing and matching options. 

As you can see, it's been a bit chilly around here lately. Thankfully, warmer temps have resurfaced and brought life back into my cold bones! This H&M coat is the perfect piece to help me stay warm (and fashionable), though. I just love the wool blend and mix of grays, black, and white. It's the perfect touch to an all gray ensemble - and, of course these boots are my a Winter's dream.

Happy Friday!

Print Mixing: Stripes + Plaid

If this scarf looks familiar, it's because I haven't stopped wearing it since I scooped it up at Zara (and I've posted it on Instagram a bazillion times ever since) #sorrynotsorry 

It's versatile, and the color patten goes with just about anything. Trust and believe this isn't the last you've seen of it - or these boots either. ;)

By the way, can we talk about print mixing for a sec? I still can't get enough, and this striped/plaid combo feeds my obsession perfectly. 

What are your favorite print mixing combos?
