Amazon Fashion Haul: Last Minute Holiday Outfits

Amazon Fashion Haul: Last Minute Holiday Outfits
Casual Winter Outfits

Sweater Dress | Boots

Earlier this year, I started doing a monthly Amazon fashion haul and it has been such a hit! I search Amazon up and down and purchase about 10 pieces of the best quality, affordable pieces from Amazon. Well,  my December Amazon haul might have been my favorite haul thus far. This order has brought my favorite new winter fashion staples.

Can searching for fashion on Amazon be a chore? Yes, you must search and search some more but Amazon has some really cute items! I am able to find the exact pieces all the popular online boutiques have but on Amazon. The best part is, these pieces are much more affordable on Amazon.

The theme of the December Amazon haul is “cute outfits for a fun night out with your friends from high school”. Who doesn’t want to look their best when they run into the cute boy you sat behind in geometry?  During the holiday season, there are always so many casual meet-ups and a new, cute outfit is exactly what is needed for those nights out.

Okay, lets get to the fun winter fashion.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

The Best Cyber Monday Sales & Deals

The Best Cyber Monday Sales & Deals

Thanksgiving is over so it is officially Christmas Season, yay! Christmas season brings some of my favorite things like watching all my favorite movies, eating all the delicious cookies and ALLLLLL the sales.

Y’all know I freaking love a deal so this season of sales is like my own personal super bowl! I am not a big Black Friday person because who wants to eat a huge meal just to turn around and leave first thing in the morning or even worse at midnight that night. This Black Friday I took my nephew out for ice cream and mini golf, it was a Black Friday well spent. While I don’t love Black Friday I am a big fan of is Cyber Monday, I do 90% of my shopping online so of course, I love a day dedicated to online shopping.

A look into what I was actually doing on Black Friday! Outfit details.

I WAS working on this whole blog post about how Cyber Monday is the perfect time to knock out all of your Christmas shopping (blah, blah, blah) but then I started to look at the sales and what items I was most excited about and turns out Cyber Monday is the perfect time to shop for yourself. OOOOPPPS.

Okay, I have read a ton about the post-Thanksgiving sales and it appears Black Friday is prominently for electronics while Cyber Monday is for FASHION. I’m not sure of the reasoning but if I was to guess I would think it has something to do with the shipping costs, but who really knows? Actually, if you do know the reasoning behind that, let me know!!

I have been reading and prepping and hunting and searching so much for this post so I hope it helps you find exactly what your closet needs this holiday season.

Now let’s get to the deals!

Wood Watch

Let’s be honest, I seldom wear watches because I find most watches too heavy and distracting while I am typing away all day on my computer. Totally not the case with Jord watches, their watches are so lightweight that it makes for a great everyday accessory.

My Jord Watch is my new favorite accessory because it’s so unique but looks great with everything! The wood is so subtle but distinct that it looks great dressed up or with a casual outfit. Jord watches can be worn by itself or with some arm candy, you really can’t go wrong.

My experience with Jord Watches and their customer service has been amazing! I am a very average size girl but for some reason, I have insanely thin wrists, it’s very strange. When I was picking out my new Jord Watch they provided me with everything I needed to ensure the best fit. Once I received the watch there was also additional links to adjust to best fit my wrist.

With the Holidays quickly approaching what better gift to give than a Jord Watch. Why not throw your typical gift card idea out and gift all of your loved ones with this awesome customizable watch. They are the leader in wooden watches with a great variety of men and women’s watches and offer 13 different types of wood that are all completely customizable and engravable.

Now is the fun part!!!  I have partnered with JORD Watches to give away $100 credit towards a unique watch of your choosing (for either you or to gift this holiday season). I have the Cassia series watch and I adore it! Use this link to enter the $100 giveaway and to receive 10% off.  Hurry..contest ends December 9th!

Things I’m Obsessing Over This Week: Faux Leather Leggings

Things I’m Obsessing Over This Week: Faux Leather Leggings

We just returned home from a perfect weekend in Denver, we had the best time in the mile high city! We ate a ton, drank a ton and laughed a ton, it was such a relaxing weekend! Not only did I have a great time seeing all of my friends in Denver I also loved being in cooler temps so I could bust out my favorite fall clothes and fall accessories.

I flew to Denver with just one small personal item, I didn’t want to pay for a carry on so I had to be very strategic in my packing for the weekend away. The way I was able to successfully pack so lightly was incorporating versatile clothing items. My favorite versatile item I packed with me are my faux leather leggings from The Loft. These leggings can be dressed up with heels for a night out or worn out of the house with Nike’s for a casual travel outfit. Any way that you style these leggings they always look great!

Faux Leather Leggings

Faux leather leggings are something I saw nonstop during the Nordstrom. The pair everyone seems to own from the Nordstrom sale are the faux leather leggings from Spanx.  I don’t own the Spanx pair (yet) but I do own a plethora of faux leather leggings.  The first pair that I purchased back in 2013 is made of a thick cotton material with a faux leather stripe down the side, they are a staple item in my closet! Since purchasing that first pair 5 years ago I have invested in tons of similar pairs and I wear this style ALL THE TIME!

Once you purchase this style of leggings I promise you will love them as much as I do!! PROMISE! To help kickstart your shopping spree I did a bit of intense online shopping and found this amazing style of leggings at all different price points from a variety of retailers. My favorite pair of faux leather leggings that I am wearing all over this blog post are from The Loft. They are listed below at $69.50 but if you use the code FALL they are 50% off making them only $35!!! what a deal!!!

I am obsessed with the style of leggings because they look so cute and fashionable but are also so comfortable. I love to wear them while traveling so I can be super comfortable but also still look like I have my life somewhat together.

 

What are your favorite fall clothing items? I’m so obsessed with chambray, faux leather, and leopard this season!

Things I’m Obsessing Over This Week: All Things Leopard

Things I’m Obsessing Over This Week: All Things Leopard

This weekend we had one of these very busy weekends where we drove all over the state; we visited with a friend who is deploying to Japan, we went to my first ever NFL game and we ended the weekend with a BBQ at my best friends house. It was such a fun, busy weekend! While my sweet husband was driving us everywhere I was doing what I do best, browsing through my Instagram. Instagram is my favorite way to stay on top of real-life, casual, affordable trends. There was one trend that inundated my Instagram feed and that is leopard print, it’s everywhere. All my favorite, cute outfits had leopard somehow incorporated; from mules to scarves to work pants, leopard print is everywhere this season. I am SO HERE FOR IT!

I am so excited to add some leopard items to my wardrobe this season. When it comes to Leopard I am going to quote one of my favorite leopard wearers, Teresa Guidice, “love, love, love.”

 Here are my absolute favorite finds:

Steve Madden Trace Casual

Mules they are everywhere this fall, I love them. This fun, leopard pair is only $30!! Heck yes. They are so versatile, they will look great with a dress, some jeans or even leggings.

BP. Long Leopard Jacquard Cardigan

A long cardigan, you can never have enough long cardigans! I love a long cardigan, I feel like I talk about them nonstop. It really is my favorite item for all seasons.

Leopard Wrap Dress

This is such a good fall transitional dress. I would love to see this dress with a leather jacket and heels for a really cute date night or girls night out look.

Leopard Belt

If you are excited about this trend but maybe a full-on leopard look isn’t for you, then this is the perfect accessory. You are able to add some fun to your outfit without overloading on leopard.

The jury is still out whether I consider leopard to be a neutral or not but no matter what I really love this print. What are some fall trends that you will be investing in? Are you as excited for leopard as I am?

Happy Monday!
