Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations


I am popping in for a rare Sunday post because there is only three days left in Sephora’s VIB Sale. This is a sale you don’t want to miss. Sephora (and makeup in general) rarely goes on sale, but right now they’re offering 15-20% off of literally everything! Your discount will be based upon how much you have spent in the past at Sephora as part of their rewards program. If you aren’t a member or haven’t shopped at Sephora in the past, no worries! You qualify for the discount too. All it takes is providing your email address before you check out or online HERE.

If you are shopping online, here are the discount codes you need based on the rewards’ tier you are in:

ROUGE: 20% off with code 20FORROUGE
VIB: 20% off with code 20FORVIB
Insider: 15% off with code INSIDER15

2017 Holiday Gift Guide

I am so excited to share Cort In Session’s 2017 Holiday Gift Guide! Yes, it’s only November, but the holidays will sneak up on you before you know it. So no need to stress and brave the crowds, just grab a cup of coffee, curl up on the couch and shop this fully interactive magazine.

This gift guide is easy to shop – click on the white arrows to turn the pages and then click on a product to see it open in a new tab. Plus, the outfits included are shoppable as well! For an optimized full-screen view, click HERE.

This isn’t all of the holiday fun, though! Leading up to Christmas, I will be sharing one gift guide a week. You will always be able to easily find them – just hover over HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE in the navigation and you’ll see all of the categories. So I hope you will bookmark my blog and continue to stop by Cort In Session as I strive to make this season as stress free as possible 🙂 As a procrastinator myself, I hope my fellow Christmas Eve shoppers and I will unite in getting sh*t done ahead of time so we can spend the holidays sharing quality time with our families and loved ones.

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!

Red Sweater Dress for the Holidays



Sweater Dress: ASOS | Boots: ASOS | Scarf: Jess Lea Boutique c/o | Clutch: Clare V. | Watch: Kate Spade c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker

Y’all. Someone send help. Because I am in the full-blown Christmas spirit and it’s only the first week of November. As a blogger (and many other occupations), we plan for the Christmas season a wee bit earlier than most professions. On one hand, it is so fun! But on the other hand, it involves trying to squeeze on layers in a hot car in late September. Haha! But, as of late, I have been putting together my holiday gift guides and outfits and it has me playing the Christmas Pop station on Spotify in the car and driving Jeremy nuts.

So, on the holiday tip, I am so excited to share this must-have sweater dress. It will be your wardrobe workhorse throughout the holiday season because it’s easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I am already picturing it with a leopard coat and cognac boots! I have been drawn to sweater dresses recently because they are so stinkin’ simple and comfortable. We are upon the season of eating and nothing is worse than skinny jeans after a big holiday meal! Plus, at $51, it’s tough to turn down. But be sure to size down one size. I usually wear a US6 at ASOS, but purchased a US4 in this particular dress.
