I have put together a list of great gifts for men in your life.  With Christmas slowly approaching I always start thinking around this time of what gifts to get for my husband, dad, and brother.  I actually find them easy to shop for because I always go for items that they need and a few items  on their want list.

The list I put together today, I had my husband in mind.  Almost two months ago on a whim we decided to move back to the Midwest from Nashville in order to be closer to family (more on that later).

Happy Monday!



Black Friday Sales

The Perfect Winter Coat

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. If you have not had a chance to shop the Black Friday deals offered this weekend do not fret.  Cyber week is upon us starting tomorrow.  A lot of retailers usually offer the same discounts as they offered on black Friday.

The coat I am wearing in the picture above is one of my all time favorite sale purchases.  I found the coat at Banana Republic for $75.  This is a coat I will have for years to come and will always be in style.

Below are some of the sales I took advantage of this past weekend and also some of the items I purchased. Before I start surfing the net I always make sure I put together a list of items that I need and items that I want. It helps me with narrowing down my lists and make sure my shopping does not get out of hand.

Banana Republic – 50% off everything

I am sucker for a stripes, I got this striped sweater, white buttoned down shirt, black and white blouse, and pants.

J Crew Factory – 50% off everything & extra 40% off clearance

I purchased this pair of wool pants in black, caramel, and summer sorbet (pink). I had been eyeing them all year and hoping that they would go on sale. The caramel and summer sorbet pairs were final sale. I saw them in store and loved the fit and the color of both.

Last year I also purchased some wool pencil skirts in multiple colors. They are definitely pieces that will remain in my closer for a while.

Loft – 50% off everything

I purchased this keyhole dress and this geometric print dress

Anthropologie – 30% off

I only purchased two cardigans that I also had been swooning over for a few months.  Just waiting for them to go on sale. I bought this long cardigan and a kimono sweater (sold out already).

Nine West – Up to 50% & extra 20% off $125+

I have been wanting a pair of grey heels, holiday heels, and nude heels.

Let me know if there are any retailers you need help tracking down the discount codes.


Pencil Dress For The Office

Wedding Guest Outfit

Weddings are fun, but can also be stressful when it comes to trying to find the perfect wedding guest outfit.  One of our friends got married in July, and I had nothing at all to wear. Well, I am sure I could have searched in my closet and pulled out this little black dress.  It’s my go to whenever I just can’t find something to wear.  However, since I had just worn it to the last wedding we had attended prior to this one, I figured I needed to switch it up. Had it been a different set of friends, I probably would have worn by trusted little black dress.
