Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. While I may never understand off-the-shoulder looks or bell sleeves or any other crazy sleeve option looks (seriously, where does one wear this?), I do understand simple white shirtdress…and the need for one in my closet (especially if it is under $50!).
  2. Blogger love of the week: Major fan of this look from Nicole…I mean can you beat a classic early-spring look that involves airy neutrals and a special shoutout to yours truly? No, no you can’t! ;) 
  3. I love classic looking purses with no labels that still have a unique look, and this circle purse from Madewell fits those qualifications exactly! Now, which color to get…
  4. This stunning craftsman home remodel makes me want to put on my painting clothes and get to work on some rooms in my own house. Just simply gorgeous what they did to the place!
  5. While this yellow cardigan might be my new fav, this affordable option from BP looks remarkably cozy and comes in two great neutral colors.
  6. You better believe that these suede espadrille wedge sandals will sell out…so buy them now, because these are definitely a great dupe/look for less!
  7. 3 ways to wear a trench coat this spring.
  8. And just in case you need a trench to wear this spring, here is a great one that is under $70!
  9. 28 things you’ll definitely remember if you were a 90’s elementary kid…Math Blaster, you guys! MATH. BLASTER!
  10. The cutest espadrilles EVER.

Turtleneck Magic Trick

I’ve now found my new favorite trick for turning all my summer dresses into winter dresses.

You know, besides moving to Florida/California where ALL summer dresses are also winter dresses!

My trick (which saves you on moving costs) is a simple turtleneck under a sleeveless or t-shirt dress! Presto, change-o!

You can try a solid color (try black or navy first) or add in some extra fun with a striped option. It adds some warmth without adding a ton of bulk and extends your closet options! It’s like a magic trick for those of us who choose/are forced to live in winter climates.

Abracadabra TURTLENECK!

Ladylike Cable Knit

Let’s face it, chunky cable knit sweaters might not be the most office friendly pieces, but they’re sometimes a necessity depending on the outside temperatures and/or how icebox-like the interior of your office might be (desk blanket, anyone?)!

So to hide some of the bulk and frumpiness that some cable knits may bring, just tuck it into a midi skirt, belt it up, and add some heels. You’ve gone to frump-tastic to ladylike cable knit style.

Which, really, what more could you ask for on a hump day after a holiday week? Where are you weekend?

Today’s fun highlights:

  • I don’t know about you guys, but I’m beyond stuffed today after eating too much and watching a ton of football with my family. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
  • We also ran in our local pre-Thanksgiving charity run (the Drumstick Dash) yesterday morning before heading to my parents, and it was the most perfect weather for a fun run with proceeds going to one of my favorite local organizations! The Husband and I have had a 4-year strong tradition of alternating between this race and volunteering to pack Thanksgiving meals for individuals in need. Perfect way to start the day of thanks!
  • And since it is now the Day After Thanksgiving, I’ll be taking frequent breaks from my schedule of walking (off all those mashed potatoes) and napping to enjoy some online shopping! Is anyone braving the crowds today? Godspeed, and you are seriously braver than me! I’ve been one or two times, and I’m too impatient that I can barely manage the parking lot!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. What do you do when you want to order ALL of the silk scarves? Find ones that are only $14 and come in 7 different patterns (the mushrooms, you guys!).
  2. Blogger love of the week: Can you get any more fall-perfect than Holly’s cozy plaid look?! I think not. That poncho!
  3. This bucket bag in navy (or black or maroon) might have to be one of my five items purchased next month! So chic and affordable!
  4. You really can’t beat a cozy turtleneck sweater on a cold winter day, so here’s how to style a turtleneck 8 different ways!
  5. If I had to wear a look all winter long, I might choose this print mixing outfit (but I’d swap out the shoes for ankle boots)!
  6. Star patterned sweaters are having a moment (see here), but I love this affordable option here. Patriotic to a fault, folks (even now). 
  7. If you need a little sparkle in your step for all the holiday events you are attending this year, might I recommend these beauties? 
  8. And if you need some soothing websites to visit after last week’s news (or any other time that you might be having a crappy day), check out Buzzfeed’s list of soothing websites. Spoiler alert: the giraffe game is the CUTEST!
  9. I loved this heartwarming dinner table ritual, and hope to enact it now and remember it in 5-10 years when I have kids!
  10. This winter wrap coat is stunnnning, comes in three colors, and is under $100. Buy it, before I buy them all! ;)
  11. Bonus: Obsessed with this song from the Hamilton remix album. Sia forever.
