Remember last week, when I mentioned that cool weather finally seemed to be here. Well I was wrong!! Last Friday, we were in the 80s, this Friday the 50s, and next Friday is expected to be in the 80s! I can’t keep up from day to day what the weather will be, and sometimes I leave my house in the 40s and it’s 80 by lunch. I am officially in layer mode with my wardrobe! I have a growing collection of long cardigans that are perfect for this fluctuating weather. I own a few in gray and black, and wanted a more beige or cream colored one. I was all about adding basic wardrobe pieces during Black Friday, and this was one of those sale purchases. Apparently, I’m not the only lover of long cardigans because they sold out fast, but I linked some similar options for you above. I love to layer long cardigans over dresses for the office and jeans on weekends. They work great over tops like this tank I bought over the summer from J.Crew. When that mid-afternoon warmth hits, I can quickly take off my cardigan and fold it over my crossbody bag. This is one reason I sometimes prefer a cardigan to a jacket. Since they don’t have as much structure, they lay over a purse much nicer than a jacket.
I also picked up these jeans on Black Friday for only $100!! They aren’t that low anymore, but they are still majorly discounted! I have only worn them once, but they are really comfy and have just the right amount of stretch. I was looking for a lighter shade of blue than my regular ones, I call it normal denim blue. 🙂 I’m always a little nervous about the shading marks, but these are in just the right places that they work perfect for a slight slimming illusion. They also look super cute when cuffed with booties! The fit for me was true to my normal jean size too.
Thanks for swinging by the blog today and Happy Happy Friday!!

I think in Houston we have finally entered fall for good. I can officially bring out my boots and scarves! This blanket scarf is so incredibly soft! If it came as an actual blanket, I would probably buy it! I love how a colorful scarf can take an outfit as simple as a plain white tee and boots and make it feel special. My long sleeve tee is also super soft! This tee was one of my Black Friday purchases. I really wanted a soft long-sleeve white tee. Something I could layer, wear alone, and lounge around the house in. I have heard this Stem tee was soft and comfy. I can confirm this is one of my softest tees!! I am definitely consider buying another white one and one in black while they are still on sale! I’m wearing a cami under mine because they are slightly sheer and I hate if there is even the slightest chance my bra will show through, but around the house I don’t wear the cami underneath because it isn’t that sheer. I’m also excited to welcome my new crossbody bag to my purse family! I have had my eye on this bag since it was released in early fall. I love the saddlebag look to a bag, plus it holds more than some of my thinner crossbody bags. I love the taupe shade because it works with a wide range of colors. This is one of those bags that I can carry year round and for years to come, so definitely worth the investment!

My Black Friday and Cyber Monday purchases officially started rolling in last week! One of my favorite things about online shopping, other than I can do it in my pajamas, is when the packages start to arrive! Even though I know what is in them, it is still exciting to rip open the box and check out the goods! I actually first saw this sweater while shopping at Nordstrom a few weeks prior to Black Friday. I really liked it, but it came in 3 colors and I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to buy. I decided to hold off until I could decide on a color. Fast forward a few weeks later, and I found this sweater included in their Black Friday markdowns!! Bonus, this sweater is STILL marked down to $20!! This sweater is on the thinner side which is often what I look for in sweaters. I mean it’s December and we are finally in the fall season down here in Texas, so I buy the majority of my sweaters on the thinner side. I decided on the teal shade because it’s a color I don’t own too much of yet, but I love this color! The other two colors are burgundy which I’m obsessed with and black also one of my color crushes. Also, just a sizing note. I typically wear a medium in this brand, but ordered in a small after reading reviews. The small fits perfect so I’m happy I chose to go down a size! Also, my boots are on sale again! The second link and wide-calf version needs promo code FRIEND which is good for almost everything on the site not just the boots, but the first link is a price match so no code required. I put both in case you are interested and your size is out at one store. Thanks for starting out your week by stopping by the blog! I hope the rest of year week is AMAZING!

My closet definitely does not hold all my clothes. I am currently super jealous of one of my friends who is turning a spare bedroom into a closet! Until that day comes for me, I will stick with my current system of packing away my seasonal clothes twice a year. It is kind of fun at the start of fall/winter to open up my totes of sweaters, boots, and jackets. Texas fall and winter is all of like 4 months, so I haven’t seen most of these clothes since about April. It is almost as exciting as getting new clothes, almost. 🙂 I also love to start mixing my old and new winter items together. I love to hit up J.Crew for some basic winter sweaters. They have a timeless look to them, and they are great quality. I usually buy 2 or 3 from them every year. This sweater pairs so perfectly with my new quilted vest from Old Navy. I always have to have something attention getting in my outfit, and this necklace is just that. I love how it peeks out from under the vest. I just updated my Shop Page to change the seasonal must-haves from Fall to Winter. Check it out if you are looking for some winter fashion inspiration! Thanks so much for swinging by the blog today!!
