Today’s highlights:

  • Has this week been the weirdest week for anyone else? I wasn’t actually convinced it was Friday…until I double checked my phone. I’ll take it, especially since this is my normal Friday off!
  • It is beyond FREEZING here in Indianapolis, so I’m spending most of the day curled up drinking coffee, snuggling under blankets, and obsessively playing this game (Stardew Valley for anyone interested) that my brother got me hooked on.
  • In sadder news, my great-grandmother passed away on Monday. We all knew it was coming eventually, as she was 97(!), but that doesn’t make it any less sad. She was a classy, sassy lady, and a huge Indiana sports fan. I’ll be wearing pearls this weekend and watching football (even though our dear Colts aren’t in the playoffs) in honor of her. Be sure to give your loved ones an extra hug today for me!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

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

  1. Do you think if I buy these ridiculously awesome workout pants that I would exercise more this winter? Or would I just use them to lay on the couch like I have the whole month of December? ;)
  2. Blogger love of the week: Look at how CUTE, cheery, and stylish my friend Nicole is! Because of that, I’ll forgive her for tricking me into liking this outfit so much…before she told me her coat was PINK (and not red like I had previously thought)!
  3. This sherpa lined vest is under $100 and looks like a great layering piece to keep you warm all winter long!
  4. And if that vest doesn’t help you, well then, let J.Crew’s former social media guru give you some tips on how to escape the winter blues!
  5. Just try telling me that this wavy cable knit sweater isn’t perfection! And if that wasn’t enough to sell you…it comes in like 10 different colors!
  6. This stripe tote might be my new favorite item to hit Target’s shelves. Perfect for a beach getaway now and a summer BBQ later (much, much later)!
  7. BRUNO MARS + JAMES CORDEN = Carpool Karaoke Gold (24K, anyone? ;)). Get it, dudes!
  8. Guys, this scarf is like 3 scarves in one since it is reversible! You can wear one side by itself (or try the other side by itself) or mixed it up like shown online! So cute!
  9. Tips on making your holiday extra festive and fun!
  10. Loving these heeled lace-up ankle boots in black…like J.Crew without the J.Crew price tag! ;)

Double your pleasure, double your fun…that’s the statement of the great…print!

Is it a lot? Yes.

Is it slightly crazy? Also yes.

But is it more fun than crazy? I hope that answer is also yes*.

Happy Monday, y’all! ;)

*But if the answer is no, just pretend this coat is a plain black one (like this one).

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

  1. These look like the most perfect boyfriend jeans ever…and they’re under $100!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Love this classy casual NYC look from Sarah, but more than that…you have to read the tragic tale of her hat. RIP, Target hat…RIP!
  3. If you’re a horse lover or just a fan of animal graphic prints, you’re going to need this cardigan! Not quite houndstooth, more like horsetooth! ;)
  4. Someone took their drone out for some crazy aerial shots of fall foliage…and they’re absolutely stunning!
  5. This weekend sweatshirt is under $20 and the coziest thing to wear…well….all weekend long (it also comes in other phrases too)!
  6. I want this dress from Boden in every color and print imaginable.
  7. The Husband and I had the best peanut butter and jelly pancakes in Prague, so the other weekend we were looking to recreate them…this recipe came super duper close, was delicious, and is excellent for a quick at-home-brunch!
  8. This skirt is giving me super Kate-Middleton-vibes…so of course I want it.
  9. I’ve always been one to listen to music when I’m working on a project, paper, or blog post, but I’ve never thought to consider what it does to my brain and it impacts my capabilities. Pretty neat summary here on when it could help! 
  10. I’ve been looking for a great pair of burgundy ankle boots, and these look like real winners!

New Favorite Coat

It seems like every year I have a new favorite coat…which usually ends up being the one that I bought for that particular year (see my camel coat here for my 2015 favorite). Sure, I still love my old standbys, but there’s nothing like a new coat to chase your winter blues away!

Or at least that’s what I tell The Husband. ;)

And yes, that same thing happened again this year with my new plaid coat from J.Crew. As soon as I saw it in stores, I knew I was hook-line-and-sinker gone and committed to making this my 2016 winter coat purchase.

And here it is…in its blog debut! The fit is perfection, the navy/white/green colors are a fun, unexpected mix, and it is heavyweight without being bulky. Plus, plaid is a classic pattern, so you know you’ll be wearing it for years to come.

So if you’re still making your Christmas list, you might want to tell Santa your coat size too! ;) Or just make this your 2016 coat!
