Weekend Steals & Deals | Last Minute Gift Ideas

And our Christmas vacation officially begins now!  We're off this morning to go see some cutie pie Kindergarteners perform the songs they've been practicing for weeks (O Christmas Tree & Hark the Herald Angles Sing) at the school Advent concert.  My son has been belting them out around the house lately and his little boy scratchy voice singing those high notes gets me every time! Then, it will be a family fancy lunch out and our son is out of school until January 5th!  Woo hoo!!!

The inlaws will be here Wednesday and Christmas is next Friday! Holy cow, how in the world does it sneak up on me every.single.year?!  Of course, I'm still not done shopping (or decorating), but I got a great start on our master sitting room and will show you Monday!

The Star Wars movie is on the weekend agenda for my husband and son - they're going to a 6:40 a.m. version on Saturday in 3D (please don't wake me, I'm sleeping as long as I can!), but we'll all be going together next Wed to a showing when their firm rents a theater.  Is your family into that movie? Crazy how it's still so popular after all these years!

weekend steals & deals 

So excited to see my Kate Spade bag go on sale - and it's a good one - 33% off!   I'm loving the two zippered compartments on this bag and the middle opening too.  The straps are also a great length for carrying on your shoulder or at the handles.  For a brighter option, the red and pink bag is also 33% off.

Pink Kate Spade bag just the right size with scarf and pink 'cocoon' cardigan.

Plaid scarf - multiple looks.

And this plaid reversible scarf is similar to the one I'm wearing below, but better because it's reversible with Glen plaid and fringe.

cozy lined jean jacket (30% off) - size up on this one, it runs small

We have both been crazy for this faux fur infinity scarf (40% off, now $11.98), and if you haven't already picked up one for yourself or a friend, now's the time with this sale price.

Super soft faux fur infinity scarf, watch, rings and cluster bracelet.

Have you been living in sweaters lately? Our weather is cuckoo, and can't seem to make up it's mind, but today's chilly forecast definitely calls for sweaters. Along with the yellow sweater I showed up above, the sweaters below are also great deals and so cozy cute!

You know by now I'm crazy for my faux leather reversible tote (have the aqua/tan and navy/ivory combos) and love them for running around with and often do actually switch up the colors by turning them inside out.  The tote is 33% off now and makes a great gift.  My first one was was a cherished gift last Christmas from my parents.

Do you have your festive holiday sweater ready?  My snowman sweater is still available and there are lots of other cute options too.  | similar scarf 

 Here's the dress I wore to my hubby's holiday party last week - got so many compliments on it.  It's non-maternity, but the rusching on the sides is very forgiving.  I'm wearing 4P.

Jackets are also in high demand lately.  I'm especially fond of two in my closet - the military jacket (great casual layering piece) and my faux leather jacket (have been eyeing this one since last year and finally picked it up!)

Military style jacket.

I searched high and low for the perfect military jacket, so many I tried were way to boxy or not the right color.  I love this one and I did order the smallest size so it would fit closer to the body- XXS since I found it runs large.

Military style jacket, striped v-neck top and plaid scarf.
military jacket | striped v-neck top (regular & petite, 4 colors) | similar scarf

Faux leather jacket, top and Michael Kors bag.

This jacket runs small, I'm wearing size Small and I can no longer zip it, so I'd order one up from your regular size.  But it's meant to be fitted, so don't go too big. 

Faux leather jacket, top, Michael Kors bag and black booties.
My exact booties are old, but I found this Sam Edelman pair that looks exact and is 30% off.  I wear these all the time, and especially like them with black tights and dresses or skirts. I'm happy to see them in the Sam Edelman brand because I have other heels that brand and they fit well and are very well made.

I'm not one for piling on the jewelry, but my few staple detail pieces do make me feel more dressed up and stylish.  This middle finger ring (currently price matched) is a favorite that I wear often and it's bare enough to not bug me, but cute enough to add style to your hands and show off your holiday manicure! 

Gorjana ring, faux fur vest, striped top, black maternity leggings, black boots, necklace and watch.

I'm crazy for my Barrington tote bag- I use it all the time, especially for traveling because mine is pretty big to be carrying everyday.  You can't beat the quality and cute factor of their products! I think this faux fur bag is next on my list! They have several bags stocked in inventory on sale with code MERRY10 that you can get in time for Christmas if you order by December 22 (this Tuesday).  The code works on all items, but only the ones stocked are guaranteed by Christmas.

I had fun designing this Barrington Monogram Strip tote bag.  You get to pick your pattern (stripe, dots, plaid) then the stripe color and monogram style and pattern.  The site is really easy to use, so it's cool to see how your different options look before you order.  This pic below is making me long for my summer tan! I'm a pasty ghost right now!
