Tis’ The Holiday Season

Processed with VSCO with q3 preset

The holiday season is officially upon us and I could not be more excited to finally say its December 1st!! I have had quite the week between catching up with family over thanksgiving break to my mac’s hard drive crashing in the middle of Black Friday weekend. I have been out of sorts without my laptop but it was delivered to me yesterday and I have been playing catch up ever since.

Now just because Black Friday is over certainly doesn’t mean that the deals are long gone. This month will be jam-packed with sales to get the holiday shopper everything they need on their gift-giving list. I am for the most part done with my own gift shopping but this year I will be taking on my mom’s shopping and I am kind of excited to be able to pick out everyone in my family’s gifts! I have already been wrapping as things start to arrive and under the tree is finally starting to come to life.

Since I had to make my way to a mall over the course of the weekend to visit the apple store I obviously had to stop in J.Crew since they were having their first ever 40% the entire store sale. Having worked for the company before I know just how big of a deal this is! Factory has sales all the time but retail, this was a beautiful first that I could not miss.

I saw this Fair Isle Scarf and I new I couldn’t pass it up especially considering the price. Its the perfect way to add to a simple running-errands/everyday outfit. Plus, its so festive. I am a sucker for anything fair isle, It reminds me of all things winter wonderland. I am a winter baby and over the years I have learned that I actually prefer fall and winter to spring and summer. There is a saying that depending on when you’re born throughout the year determines which seasons you enjoy the most and the saying certainly fits, in my case.

Since I was just running around with Nick for the day I wore a white fisherman sweater that I got a while back from J.Crew Factory, its a great timeless piece that will never go out of style. I wore it with black jeans, and a pair of Michael Kors riding boots. I find that I opt for black jeans before leggings if I am not lounging around for the day because it really makes the look feel put together. I used to love leggings when I was younger and don’t get me wrong, I still love them so much but theres something about a sweater with jeans that just looks so nice and presentable. I decided to mix it up with the boots too, I wore my black boots with a brown trim. This made it so I was able to break up the black throughout the leg. It was the smallest touch to the outfit but made a world of difference.

I also got this little bow, pony-tail, holder as I was looking through J.Crew. I thought it was not only perfect for me because I love bows but definitely something appropriate for the holidays. They had all different kinds solid/patterned and their price point before the sale was only $12.50. I had Nick help me pick one because I just couldn’t decide. We went with red and I love it. It really makes pulling your hair back super cute. I can’t wait to try it on with a top-bun!
