Weekend Steals & Deals + Fall/Winter Outfits

A few girlfriends and I got together last night and were chatting about how some of us are Today Show girls, while others prefer Good Morning America.  Do you fall into one of those categories?  I'm a Today Show girl and have been watching it as long as I can remember.  I put it on each morning and listen to it while I'm getting ready.  I always pay close attention to Al's weather report and think about y'all as he shows how the U.S. is doing in terms of temperature.  It seems like most parts of the U.S. are feeling the cold lately.  Houston went from "I hope it gets cold soon" to "holy sh*t, it's cold!" in about two days.  Of course, we enjoy getting to bust out some of our cold weather clothes.  

This perfect v-neck tee comes in a ton of colors and ranges from only $5.50 - $9.  My 1969 GAP legging jean is a go-to I wear all the time.  Because I like them so much (they are stretchy and super comfy), I have them in two sizes (24 and 25) depending on if I've been eating too much ice-cream.  You know you like your jeans when you buy them in two sizes. ;)  These tall black boots are old from DSW (Audrey Brooke), but I think this pair is the most similar at the same price. 

Since I tend to wear plain tops, I like the pop of pattern this plaid scarf adds.  More plaid scarf options here and here and here.  The striped gloves are a steal from Old Navy at under $7, and help keep your hands warm.  I'm wearing the Kate Spade watch I was telling you last week finally went on sale (20% off!).  And the Renegade bracelet is holding up really well, even though I wear it all the time.  

My French Connection soft packable jacket isn't a steal at $165, but I wanted to show you what I wore to keep warm because it was so cold that day.  This jacket is a favorite of mine because it's slim, so you don't get the bulk that comes with many puffy jackets.  We're heading to NY next month and it will be great for packing, since it folds up to nothing.  

I feel like a lot of days I'm reaching for my leggings, but I need more long tunic-type tops to pair with them (that cover the rear), so I scouted a few on sale.   

Karen Kane Sweater Knit Top ($40,80, $68) comes in other colors. 

Lush Perfect Tunic Henley ($28.90, $44) comes in other colors.  

Trouve Drape Neck Sweater ($39.90, $68) other colors | Caslon Knit Tunic ($39.90, $68) regular and petite, other colors 

And for casual, on-the-go athletic style tops/jackets, here are some great deals in cheerful colors.

half-zip top ($38.40, $64

Zella Haute Jacket ($64.80, $108) | Zella Prism Too Jacket ($58.80, $98)

Finally, these reindeer sweaters aren't on sale, but they're only $39, and too adorable not to share.  The glasses are green sequins people!  I wanted to show you now because they are already down to medium and large only.

  1. I love every single item in this post

  2. Great picks Megan. My oldest would love those tunics. She lives in her leggings when not teaching!

    1. I know why, leggings are just so dang easy and comfy!

  3. Love those gloves and the color of that top! I am currently looking for one that color to wear under a cream poncho!


    1. The red is really vibrant - and only $10! Can't beat it. Will be great with a cream poncho.

  4. Those pics are wonderful, and you're gorgeous! Have you tried the Zella tops? I'm tempted because they're so much cheaper than my favorite Lulu :)

    1. I just ordered a jacket- I'll let you know how I like it!

  5. thanks for this post! I enjoy it every time you do it. Lots of great things.

    1. Thanks for letting me know Kimberly. It means a lot to me!

  6. I'm def a GMA girl! Been watching it since college!

  7. Love, love your posts! In fact, I look forward to your Friday steals & deals post! Quick question for husband and I are going to to NYC in 2 weeks kid free! Do you have any suggestions for coats? i like the idea of something simple and stylish but I need to stay warm. What coat are you wearing when you to NYC? I still want to look stylish but want to be oh so warm. Thanks for your help! Haven't been to NYC in nearly 15 years and cannot wait!!

    1. Thanks for telling me you like these posts! I love doing them. So excited that we'll both be getting away to NYC soon. :) I'm definitely packing the packable coat in this post and I also have a heavier NorthFace brown coat I'll bring. Be sure to bring a head wrap or earmuffs to keep your ears warm (especially if it's windy) and gloves! I bought a pair of heavier duty Ugg boots too- need to share them still, but here's the link: They seem like they'll be comfy and warm for lots of walking, but they were a splurge at $175.

    2. Thank you so much for the reply! I actually just bought a north face white down coat for the trip. So I am glad I got it now! My cousin suggested I buy Ugg boots as well. I don't own a pair because I've never liked the big heavy feeling but I may have to get a pair. I'm going to check out your link. Again, thank you for replying :)

  8. Red is a great color on you Megan! I love the first photo of you. You look very glamorous. I'm a Today show girl, too. How fun to be going to NY next month! I miss NY at this of the year. We lived there for 4 years. The Christmas windows are always wonderful to see. I bet James will enjoy it. Such a magical place during the holidays. Have you been to NY?

    1. I didn't know you lived in NY for 4 years. What an experience! I'm excited to go back, haven't been with my husband in several years. I'm ready to bundle up, I know it will be cold there. But, James will be home with the grandparents! :)

  9. Loving your cold weather style picks!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, I read every one! I try to answer questions in the comment section since many readers are "no reply" and so everyone can benefit from the response- so please check back. :)
