Budget Bootcut Jeans & Gifts for the Girlie Girl

Yay for Friday, right?!  We had a weeknight date night last night, which never happens, so I’m feeling like the weekend has already started! AND, I cleaned out my office closet, which was a nightmare and got it all nice and neat and organized!  I should’ve taken before and after pics to share with you but I got so busy in the process that I completely forgot.

Rereading portions of this book gave me the nudge to let lots of stuff go.  The last thing to go through are the boxes of pictures dating back to my childhood that I plan to put into photo albums I’ll want to display on our bookshelf so we can actually enjoy them!  We usually do a massive home organize/purge in January, but I’m trying to do some now before getting knee deep in holiday decor and before the new gifts for the kids.  Our playroom was previously only organized for James, but he better move over and make way for Jordan! 

Today, I’m sharing a Casual Friday outfit that can work for the office if you can wear jeans, and it also dresses up for date night with a fun faux fur vest.  AND, I also created a fun ? GIFT GUIDE? for you girls that you can check out at the end of this post.  ?

Remember these darker bootcut jeans we went crazy for that make your legs look 10 inches longer?!   The budget-friendly pair that are under $90. That dark wash is great, and especially good for the office, but I love the cut so much that I also got the lighter, more casual wash too.

I will say they run big, so size down.  I’m wearing 0P and the length is fine on me even with a heel, but the fit feels like I need to wash them to shrink them just a tad.  They have a lot of stretch, which makes them ultra comfy, but also looser throughout the day. 

If you like prints and patterns, this floral print blouse is a winner.  It’s navy with touches of white, gold, pink and blue.  I liked it with the vest for a change from my typical solids or stripes.
So you can see the detail on the blouse better, here it is without the jacket and with the bags switched up for this crossbody
The blouse has two sweet tassel ties and you can wear the top one tied or leave it untied and hanging.

Y’all know I love my reversible tote (as seen above), but did you see it now comes in red/white combo?!  #Gah!!! And they chose the perfect shade of true, bright red!  I just love it and it’s perfect for the holidays with your red Starbuck’s cup!  Have you gotten yours yet?!  #tallnonfatlightwhipwhitemochaplease! 

Which prompted me to put together my first ? GIFT GUIDE ? collage of the season.  I love creating these and sharing them with you!  My girlfriend and I are hosting a “Favorite Things” party at my house in a couple weeks, so this is getting my wheels turning!
