Weekend Steals & Deals + Fall Fashion Ideas + Sugar Paper Giveaway

Anyone here a fan of cashmere?  Let me rephrase that: anyone here a fan of affordable cashmere? The coveted fabric is often out of reach for most budgets (remember that SATC where Carrie asked her friend if she could return the cashmere scarf and take the cash?!) But this Halogen cashmere sweater (in v-neck or crew) is marked down 33%, from $89 to $58.90.  Both styles come in a colorful array of 21 colors and have tons of positive reviews.  I’m a terrible/awesome friend to shop with, can’t decide on a color?  Get two! 😉

I don’t know about you, but I’m still mad for plaid.  The plaid shirts below are a steal from Old Navy and would be perfect underneath one of the sweaters above.
Or paired with a scarf and puffy vest or coat. As much as I wear skinny jeans, sometimes I prefer to wear my Hudson bootcut jeans.  They are just so comfortable, and, although they are 40% off, I noticed their sizes are limited so I found this (more affordable bootcut jean) that looks great and is only $58.  I’m weary of buying jeans from the juniors department (because let’s face it, I’m not a junior and their cuts are often made for people without hips), but I have jeans in this brand (Vigoss) and they are a true fit.  I wear the same size I do in most women’s brands.

This asymmetrical wrap cardigan is on sale and this grey/navy one is just $19.90.  
For something more substantial, I’m kinda crazy about this pea coat by Kristen Blake.  It’s a wool/nylon blend and fully lined with a back button half-belt.  Makes the back so cute without having to deal with tying it in the front. 
And this longer military jacket with faux-leather trim.  Love it!
Is is just me or is it harder to workout when it’s cold outside?  I’m still going to the gym or running a few days a week, but cute workout clothes can get me in the mood.  Women rave over this brand, Zella, of athletic wear and I found all these options on sale.  One of my close friends says the ‘Move pants’ are her very favorite pants she owns.  I like how you can wear them long or scrunched.  I would probably just wear them around on weekends, because I prefer to workout in capris.  You might know my favorite athletic shoe is ASICS and these fun pink pair are 35% off (they come in other colors too).  The jacket and half-zip top are perfect for cold days- comfy and cute!

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. Have really enjoyed your blogs, especially the clothing steals! I have purchased several scarves and some jewelry from your recommendations. You have great taste in clothes. I would love to have the planners. Like most, my life is fairly busy and they would be so helpful in keeping me straight! Thanks for the opportunity. lindadarling24@gmail.com

  2. I love all of Sugar Paper's products. In fact, last year I tried to get some of the ones you showed your blog from Target, but by the time I went to order them, they were all out of stock. Pretty accessories make it so much easier to stay organized. Thanks so much for sharing! Have a great weekend!

  3. I picked up a couple plaid shirts at Old Navy and love them. Very comfy and have washed beautifully. I went into Target a couple nights ago to poick up a Sugar Paper calender and was told they sold out already! I'll cross my fingers on the giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity. Have a great weekend Megan.
