Styling a Leopard Skirt



Sweater: SheIn c/o | Skirt: Sanctuary (Only $44!) | Vest: J.Crew Factory (Under $50!) | Boots: Goodnight Macaroon c/o | Bag: SheIn c/o | Earrings: BaubleBar c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker

I’ll get to this outfit in just a minute, but first I need some real talk. Does anyone else have Taylor Swift’s new album on repeat? I can’t get enough. In Delicate, King of My Heart, & New Year’s Day, the lyrics literally speak to my soul. I love Taylor in love! But seriously… if anyone is as obsessed as me, please reach out. I need someone to chat with about it! Jeremy is so over it – ESPECIALLY when I try to serenade Gorgeous to him.

Now that that’s out of the way (yes, I’m aware I have a problem), on to the fashion. Y’all – everything I’m wearing is under $50, minus the boots!! I am shocked that this skirt isn’t sold out yet because it is THAT GOOD. For only $44, it is such high quality jacquard fabric and even has pockets. I am wearing a size small in it, but if you are a size large, I found it here for only $22! This sweater is also only $22. You have seen me wear it in this post too and it is just perfect for pairing with skirts and vests thanks to its shorter length and adorable ruffle-tier sleeves. It is one size fits all, but fits like a small/medium.


10 Outfits to Recreate this Thanksgiving



Sweater Dress: Goodnight Macaroon c/o | Scarf: Charming Charlie c/o (Only $18!) | Boots: Goodnight Macaroon c/o | Earrings: J.Crew | Bag: SheIn c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker

The countdown is on to Thanksgiving 2017; only ten days to be exact. Luckily, that is plenty of time to shop for an outfit. I tried to make sure that each of these pieces are still in stock, but quite a few of these looks are simple to recreate with pieces you already have in your closet.

To be honest, I always wondered why people cared to dress up for Thanksgiving. Y’all may not know this about me, but I have an adorably tiny family. My mother and I are BOTH only children, while my dad has one sibling who never had children. So I have no siblings, cousins, or fellow family members under 60. There are five of us in total and I love it that way! Holidays are a big deal in our family – we’re very close – but they’ve never been fancy affair. I am always worn leggings and an oversized sweater in the past.

That is, until I married into Jeremy’s enormous family. I now have nieces and nephews (something I always prayed to have), four siblings, cousins, and an amazing new set of parents. That’s not including all of their families! As our first Thanksgiving as a married couple approaches, we are prepared for holidays to be overwhelming in the best possible way. So naturally, I want to look a bit more put together and I rounded up ten of my favorite recent looks that are comfortable, inexpensive, and perfect for your packed schedule!


The plaid shirt will take you to this exact one.

Keep scrolling for my favorite retailers to shop for outfits and gifts, plus my picks from each!

Quick Links for Simple Holiday Shopping

NORDSTROM: Nordstrom is your one-stop shop for holiday gifts. They have an unmatched selection of shoes and outerwear – hellooo beautiful booties – and this season, they have created fabulous gift guides like this under $50 guide.
OLD NAVY: Old Navy has been my go-to as of late for affordable fall and winter fashion. They have adorable, inexpensive pieces that would work perfectly for Thanksgiving like this plaid shirtdress and this mock-neck sweater.
LOFT: If you are on the hunt for cozy knits and classic pieces, look no further than LOFT. They run an amazing 40% off sale every other week and have the most gorgeous sweaters. I have this and this in my cart right now!
SHOPBOP: If you have followed my for any length of time, you know ShopBop is basically my favorite retailer. I love perusing their Gift Shop for unique presents and their selection of Zac Posen bags is unmatched. Plus, they have the BEST sales! My advice – wait until Cyber Monday to score designer pieces for a steal.
ASOS: ASOS is the only place I shop for party dresses. I am ordering this one and this one for some upcoming parties. The best part is that they have free two-day shipping and an amazing return policy so it’s impossible to go wrong.
TRENDLEE: Yes, she may love designer bags and shoes, but you don’t have to pay full price for them. Trendlee is the best luxury consignment boutique I have found. Their bags are in pristine condition and priced thousands lower than retail. This is my dream Chanel bag.
J.CREW FACTORY: For inexpensive but well-made outerwear, J.Crew Factory is your store. This herringbone vest continues to be a favorite year after year and this bow sweater will match every wool skirt in your closet.
LULU & GEORGIA: This is THE site for home decor. I want literally EVERYTHING from here! When you are browsing the site, be sure to keep in mind that this is the season of giving because it is too easy to spend all of your money here. I have this rug and love it.
TARGET: We obviously all know and love Target, but you may not think to shop here for affordable jewelry. Thanks to Sugarfix, Target is now packed with tons of trendy baubles at a fraction of BaubleBar’s price. This statement earring set and this necklace will make the perfect stocking stuffers.

There is no better time than Thanksgiving to let y’all know how much I appreciate each and every one of you who stops by my little corner of the web. I love having the opportunity to chat personally with you guys be it in the comment section on this blog, over email, or on Instagram. But for those of whom I haven’t yet connected with, I want to give you my sincerest thanks for reading. Happy Holidays, loves!
