In what feels like a commentary on my entire week, I’ve spent the last five hours starting to finish this post and then getting distracted. In fact, in this time period I have baked a strawberry cake, made taco soup, helped Caroline with her hair and had two glasses of wine.
All that to say, I was probably a little better five hours ago than I am now.
But a cold front has blown through complete with rain, we have no real plans for the weekend and Alabama is playing LSU on Saturday. All in all, my excitement level is about a fifteen on a scale of 1 to 10.
And I also found some cute things this week that I really love and could make great Christmas gifts if you’re the kind of person who has started thinking about Christmas shopping.
I love a poncho. And I also happen to think a poncho makes the perfect Thanksgiving outfit because you can wear it with stretchy leggings and eat all you want while basically wearing a blanket.
This one is just $24.99 and comes in several color options, although I happen to like this one best and can totally picture it over all black with tall boots. It would also make a nice Christmas gift because one size fits all.
This is such a great basic and it’s on sale for $47.40. It comes in several color options and is long enough to wear with leggings. It would also look great under a jacket or blazer.
I know I’ve featured these before but I continue to love these leggings. I have this green camo pair, a gray camo and a solid black. They are the leggings I reach for over and over again because they are so comfortable.
Best of all they are just $29.99.
In case you’re in the market for a great basic black dress, this one is just $79. I love that it has the ruching on the side because it gives the figure flattering effect of a body-con dress but it also forgiving for the tummy area for those of us who like our wine and/or our pasta.
You could dress this up for a holiday party or just keep it simple for more somber occasions like work.
Remember last year when I found my Sam Edelman boots back in stock at Nordstrom Rack and it was a miracle? I still love those boots so much.
These are really similar and they are just $66 which is a bargain for a great pair of boots. I wear mine all the time because they are a great neutral and go with almost any outfit. They also come in a chestnut color if that’s more your thing.
Okay, I love a winter white outfit. This oversized sweater would look so pretty over a pair of white skinny jeans with the taupe boots up above. Or you could just throw it on with leggings for a more casual look.
It’s just $34.99.
This necklace set is on sale for $49.95 plus an extra 25% off all sale. It would make a great Christmas gift for someone or you could add it to your own wishlist.
Tweed oversize blazers are a big trend right now and this one would look equally great dressed up for the office or just with jeans and booties. You could wear it with a velvet cami underneath and leather leggings for a holiday party.
It’s $150 but 40% off with the code FESTIVE at checkout along with everything at Loft right now.
I love my leopard print slip on sneakers and these are really similar. They are $89.95 and have a great platform heel that gives you a little more height. I’ve found they go with so many things in my closet and I wear them all the time.
They also come in snakeskin and some solid colors here.
Maybe you remember that I have long been on the search for a great pair of faux leather leggings. I even ordered some off Amazon that were listed as “novelty costume leggings” in my desperation. But the search is over because these are so good and they are just $16.
They aren’t as compressive or thick as Spanx leggings and they may not last me past this season, but they fit like a dream and are so comfortable and cute. I ordered the small for size reference and normally wear a 4-6 or 27 in pants and jeans. They fit perfectly.
That’s it for today.
Have a good Friday.
