A Couple Holiday/NYE Looks!

I have had a lot of requests for holiday/NYE looks- and while getting dressed up isn’t something I do often, I was happy to put these two looks together! One is definitely more casual- aka ME and the other is definitely more for NYE in my opinion (hello sequins!)

Nordstrom is always my go-to place when putting looks together for any upcoming event. They carry all my favorite brands and it’s so easy to find what I am looking for! I hope you enjoy these looks- keep in mind it was 30 degrees here when shooting! haha- I tried not to look cold but I was freezing!

Sizing- I took an XS in this amazing leopard coat (TTS) and a small in this sweater (sized up for length) It is hard to tell but the sweater has metallic stitching which is why I consider it more of a holiday sweater. Jeans fit TTS for me and are a brand I need to purchase more of- I LOVE them! And lastly- these wedges are entirely sherpa on the inside so they are incredibly warm and comfortable. They run TTS- I actually have them in the antelope color as well!


Like I mentioned above, this next look is definitely more NYE. But seriously how fun is this dress? The sequins are amazing. You will definitely make a statement in this piece. I also just wanted to point out my earrings even though you can’t really see them. Black beaded bows. PERFECTION.

Sizing info- The dress fits TTS- I am wearing an XS. You can make a lot of adjustments to it with the straps that criss cross the back but you can’t do anything about length. So if you are worried about it being short- size up one size and you can always lace up the back tighter! My furry cardigan is a size small- I always go up a size in this particular brand. Heels run TTS, I can’t find this heel height in them but I am linking the exact ones except with a kitten heel! Very similar ones but with a higher, chunkier heel can be found here.

The Best of the Cyber Sales!

Here is a little round up of my favorite things that are on major sale this week! Again- if you see something you love for you or for someone else, snag it before it’s gone. Things sell out SOOO quickly this time of year.

 

 

 

Tory Burch Satchel $333 (33% off)- This is definitely on the pricey side but this bag NEVER goes on sale! It is always excluded from site wide sales so I was shocked to see it marked down! I am guessing it will go back to full price after cyber week is over. I don’t see this bag being phased out yet.

 

Wrap Coat $173 (50% off)- I have major love for this coat. I have owned it for about three years now and it is still one of my very favorites. It’s special and the huge collar makes it unique. I always get compliments on it when I wear it to dinner. Sizing- true to size.

 

Waterproof Hiking Boots $196 (30% off)- I just got these boots this past week but it was love at first site. All my waterproof winter boots tend to me brown or tan so when I saw the grey, I had to have them. 90% of my wardrobe is grey. They seem like they will be very warm without being too big and bulky. Sizing- true to size.

 

Tory Burch Watch $135 (40% off)- I must have a thing for Tory Burch watches because this is the second one I have posted about. They are truly beautiful and classic and who wouldn’t love to receive this as a gift? The price is unbeatable!

 

Ugg Slippers $69 (30% off)- Ugg slippers are one of my favorite gifts to give and receive! I get a pair every winter. This cute pink pair looks so cozy. It comes in a couple other colors as well. I have had this style in the past and they run true to size.

 

Pink Coat with Fur Collar $57 (40% off) I own this coat in tan from last year and LOVE it. The fur collar is removable as well. When I saw the gorgeous pink color and at such a deeply discounted price, I scooped it up immediately. I can;t wait until it arrives. In this particular brand I take a US 2 which is equivalent to a 0.

 

Sperry Boots $72 (40% off)- I know you all LOVE Sperry boots so when I saw these marked down 40%, I knew I had to include them. These make exceptional gifts for college students trekking through the winter to class as well as everyone else that enjoys a comfortable waterproof pair of boots! Sizing- I size down a half size in this brand.

 

Packable Jacket $99 (35% off)- I don’t think I need to tell you how much I love this coat! Its warm but super light weight and is especially great for traveling because it can pack up into a very small pouch that is included. Sizing- true to size.

 

Pom Pom Hat $12- I was looking everywhere for a good pom hat with a HUGE pom but didn’t want to spend a ton of money. I found this one for $12 and LOVE it. It also comes in tons of colors and would be great to give as a small gift for someone, as part of a bigger gift or even a stocking stuffer!

 

Cyber Week Sales- Nordstrom!

I feel like the cyber week sales are starting earlier and earlier every year but that’s okay! Who doesn’t love a good sale?! The Nordstrom cyber sale is the best I have ever seen- with many pieces up to 60% off!! Here are two looks I put together- almost all of which is marked WAY DOWN! I have a feeling, with prices this low, things will sell out FAST. So if you see something you love and in the size you need, I would order it immediately! You don’t want to have any regrets! We all know how much it stinks to have missed out on that item you’ve had your eye on!

So I ended up buying this tunic in every single color! It’s 60% off, making it just $15!! The price is unreal. It’s made out of that super soft brushed material that I just love and it’s actually tunic length so you can wear it with leggings too. (Ps. spanx leggings are on sale right now!!) Also you guys know my love of packable coats and at less than $100- this one is amazing! It has a big collar which I love and it can pack up into a little baggie that comes with the coat! I can’t believe these jeans are still on sale. They are so flattering and comfortable and the price is unbeatable. I got my regular size 25 so stick with your regular size. Lastly can we discuss how cute these faux fur boots are?! They are part boot/part sneaker and the fur is just UNREAL. I have had these since last year but you can score them on sale now! They run true to size and come in three colors.

Here’s another packable jacket option for you- I believe this off white color is sold out but the light pink is SO GOOD. My ivory fuzzy sweater is beautiful. I have worn it so many times since getting it a month or so ago. The sleeves are a fuzzy material and it has the slightest mock neck- which you know I love! I ordered it in a small for a little extra length. Lastly, these waterproof hiking boots were a bit of a splurge but I saw them and had to order them! They are waterproof which is great for Maine winters and the treads are pretty substantial. I didn’t have any light grey boots so these seemed like a good option- no regrets so far! They run true to size and there’s still room if I want to wear heavier socks!

The Comfiest Sneakers EVER- Allbirds!

I got my first pair of Allbirds about a month ago and I haven’t looked back since. I had heard over and over that they were the comfiest sneakers ever but I didn’t take the plunge until my dad asked me what I wanted for my birthday. Allbirds immediately came to mind! You guys- I’M OBSESSED. They are made of wool and can be thrown in the washing machine! And you don’t have to wear socks with them if you don’t want to. (I hate wearing socks!). These would make a great gift this holiday season as well! Husband, mom, sister?
Sizing- They only have whole sizes so if you are in between then size up. If you are normally a whole size, just stick with that size. I am an 8 and the size 8 fit me perfect. My husband is a 9.5 and the size 10 is just right.

Bedroom Update with Serena and Lily!

For me, my bed has always been a special place. When I was a little girl I would put powder in my sheets so they would smell nice. Later in high school and college, I would put a foam egg crate and a feather bed on top of the mattress to make it as high and squishy as possible. Then a little later on in life I started splurging on nice linens and really haven’t looked back since. I justify it by knowing how much time I spend in my bed and how important sleep is- why not spend a little more to get the best of the best? Like I said, my bed has always been one of those special things that I really treasure. So I was so excited to be able to partner with Serena and Lily on this little bedding makeover. Their linens are absolutely beautiful and they really stand out in quality. From October until about April we sleep with flannel sheets on the bed (hello Maine is freezing!) so I was really eager to try Serena and Lily’s new flannel sheets. Let me tell you- they do not disappoint! If you have never tried their bedding, now is the perfect time to do so. They are running a 20% off everything promotion with code: Gather!
Just be aware that you will spend oodles of time on their website looking over all their beautiful linens. I know I went back and forth a lot. I ALMOST went with these gorgeous scalloped ones because I have never seen anything like that but I needed the flannel warmth this time of year. Anyways- here is my newly redone bed with my typical grey and white theme. And before you ask- my wall color is Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter. I can’t tell you how many times I get that question! 🙂
