So you take one shirt from the Gap, and then you play. I love this sheer shirt but have struggled with how to wear it, lo and behold, here are two ways. The tights are oll and pretty much kept me warm at school even when the temperature dropped below freezing today. This was my first time wearing shorts in winter and I have to say I really loved the casualness of the look.
I am a bit obssessed with accesories this Christmas and think this coral necklace from the Etsy store Bijoux Designs will add a lot of pop to any outfit. In the end it is all about versatility and I think this can be worn with so many things.
No we didn’t go stand in line or riot, we were happy getting up whenever we wanted to and then heading to the stores. The first store we hit was Anthropolgie which had 50% off their sale items until 11 AM. These two new lovelies found a new home with me, not 100% on the shirt, have to try it with some outfits. I also snagged a blue pencil skirt that was warm and wonderful.
Banana Republic was next where I longingly eyed this plaid shirt – how fun will this be with a blue pencil skirt? And yet, $70 for a buttonwdown, yikes Banana, so I am keeping an eye out on it and waiting for it to go on sale.
Our final stop was Ann Taylor Loft which for me can be a little hit or miss, and this is coming from someone who worked there for several years. Either way I fell in love with this red pencil skirt and top. The skirt I had to order but I do love the pop of color.
So all in all, not a bad Black Friday. The stores had decent sales, nothing crazy, and we picked places that weren’t too crowded. We did also go to J Crew but their deal was pathetic so I will keep an eye out for a better sale.
If you haven’t tasted the goodness that is Christine’s Caramels with Sea Salt you haven’t lived. This Madison based candy maker is my go to indulgence since I found out I was allergic to chocolate. In fact, this has become one of my favorite presents to give to people as well. Apparently I am not the only one that is in love with these treats as they are about to go national. So for Christmas, I wish for Santa to bring me some more for my stocking.
Blazer Forever 21/ Tank Banana Republic/ Jeans Only/ Heels BCBG
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays since it is just about being with family so this features my ever stylish sister as well. I loved the funky take on stripes in shirt/dress. I wanted to be comfortable and have some fun and got this super cool sequin blazer at F21 for a steal, I will be wearing this to school as well. Only downside is that your hair snags in it, ouch.
Whatever you ended up doing, I hope you did it well. Stay tuned for some Black Friday shopping in action pictures.
I love pencil skirts and do like a good leopard if it is done tastefully. I love this skirt from JCrew, in fact, they have been rocking my world for a while even though I cannot afford their clothes. Soinstead I hope Santa brings this my way so I can pair it with a navy blazer and some fun shoes.

Tuesday and the kids are not ready to stay seated. Who can blame them with Thanksgiving two days away? So when I rolled out of bed this morning with my hair all curly due to my braids the day before, I was just going to roll with it. I love this silk top but have a hard time wearing it, and yet this just felt right. Two pastels together and they popped. My jeans are actually pleated at the top – my husband thinks they are the most ugly pants I own and that says a lot – but they are pretty funky. I rolled and cuffed them and wore them with my suede wedge boots. Whatever it was, this outfit is one of my new favorites, who would have thought.
So this won’t post until after Thanksgiving so have a merry one if you celebrate…I can’t wait to show you what I wore to my dual dinners.

I am officially disallowing myself from being photographed wearing this sweater for a while, I will just hide how much I live in it. As a teacher, my room goes fom hot to freezing in one day so I have to layyer up and it is just perfect for it, plus it has pockets which means I can throw my markers and doo dads in it too. But enough is enough.
I wish this outfit was because of something fun but instead I had to go to a funeral right after school to support two very close friend’s in their loss. Worn with my wedge boots I amanged to make it through a 15 hour day and still look somewhat decent. And oh I love navy and black together, this dress is actually not as bright as it looks here.
I am addicted to books and the feeling of reading them but when I heard I can borrow books from Amazon for free on the Kindle (due to my prime membership) I had to rethink it. So this Christmas I wish for the cheap Kindle, I already have an iPad so I don’t need anything but a book reader. And with that, of course, comes a super fun cover…
I love the idea of the owl and I love felt so this handmade pouch from the Etsy store Ohmycake makes perfect sense for me. A little whimsy for my purse.
