Style a Friend | Black Friday Edition

Hello friend and Happy Thanksgiving! How has your day been?  Even though this has been one heck of a year, I’m feeling grateful as ever for all of the blessings in my life.  Today was spent with some of my favorite girls- my daughter, Jordan, my Mom, and my dear friend Trisa.  We had a lovely, very chill day, lounging, eating, drinking, and eating some more.  I’m stuffed!

Before we jump into today’s post and all the Black Friday sales, I wanted to offer a sincere THANK YOU to all of you.  Many of you have been with me for years and years, and I appreciate it more than you know.  Your heartfelt messages of love and support helped get me through one of the most difficult times in my life.

And in the day to day, your visits, shares, likes and comments lift my spirits and make our little corner of the internet feel so much brighter!


Today is a fun dressing room style post with our favorite girlfriend, Ali-Shaun.  It’s always a blast when she stops by and it’s even better on Stories, which I’ll be sharing tomorrow!

Ali-Shaun and I beelined straight for Nordstrom and tried on all the cute things we found in our store.  Armed with coffee!

We were feeling quite festive in these fair isle sweaters and they are so incredibly well made. They’re a pima cotton, so they’re more durable and softer than regular cotton.

“Merry” and “Cheers” sums up this time of year for sure!  These sweatshirts look great worn alone or with a collared top peeking out on top.

White Sweater • Cheers SweaterSkirtBlack Heels

Ali-Shaun dressed her sweatshirt up with this navy blue pleated skirt and I showed a more dressy option.  The skirt has a flattering A-line fit and lots of stretch.  It’s party ready with little bits of gold flecks running throughout.

Megan Sweater Fit: XS

This winter white sweater is slightly fuzzy, adding to the cozy vibe. It has dolman sleeves and shorter length, just enough for a mini tuck on me. I also love the boatneck style.

They’ll definitely see us coming in these neon sweaters!  I love the bright pop of color, especially when winter drags on too long and the days feel dreary.  This sweater is nice and soft, but if neon isn’t your thing, there’s a black option.

We both loved the print jeans – mine are leopard and Ali-Shaun’s are camo, but in the same skinny cargo style.  They are by Wit & Wisdom, which is known for their “ab-solution” technology that helps “mold and hold, plus a waistband with interior control and booty-lift construction.” #youhadmeatbootylift

Dare I say everyone looks good in red, especially during the holidays!  This sweater is a soft, stretchy cowl neck in the most gorgeous true red.

Red SweaterYellow SweaterMegan’s Jeans • Ali-Shaun’s Jeans • Knee Boots • Wedge Sneakers

My red cozy v-neck sweater is a dream, and untucked, about long enough for leggings.  It has a deep v-neck that would be perfect for layering a tank or bralette underneath.

Megan Sweater Fit: XXS

Ali-Shaun’s yellow sweater looks amazing on brunettes.  The v-neck on that one is smaller and I adore the balloon sleeves.

More fair isle! – This one has a modern edge to it with the diamond pattern. And of course I adore both color combos.

Now how sweet is this?!  The little feathery bits accentuate the neutral strips in this sweater.  And you can’t go wrong with pink, white and tan! It also looks beautiful with white jeans.

Sweater Fit: XS 

Tunic Sweater • Jeans Boots

When you’re wondering what to wear with leggings, this is pretty much the perfect turtleneck tunic!  It has a shirttail hem (slightly longer in the back), a lightweight material, with a loose fitting cowl neck collar.

Under $50 for this pretty lavender cardigan that hits just at the hips.  It’s chunky goodness, but not super overwhelming.

Megan Cardigan/Tee Fit: XS

Ali-Shaun’s cardigan is so her!  She adored the bubbled sleeves and striped texture on the body.

Button Down TopMegan’s Jeans • Ali-Shaun’s JeansLeopard FlatsWedge Sneakers

A classic button down top is a closet staple and this one comes in several great patterns.  You can wear them now and throughout the year and style them many different ways.  I’m wearing mine casually unbuttoned and untucked with a tee underneath, and Ali-Shaun tied hers- but the trick is to tie it at your waist level, so that it accentuates that smallest part of your figure (as opposed to lower on the hips).

 This sweater is a lovely neutral color with an open v-neck and slight balloon sleeves.  I think it’s a fun take on a traditional cable knit sweater with the unique shape.  Plus, it’s nice and thick so it will keep you cozy.

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. I was just about to post the exact same thing. That dress was made for her. If she didn’t buy it, she should go back and get it!

  1. Hi Megan, hope you had a wonderful holiday. Everything looked beautiful on you gals. This was a labor of love and your readers so appreciate all you do for us. It also looked like a lot of fun. Can’t wait for your Monday post.

  2. Amazing post! Thank you for taking so much time to make this post happen. I love when the two of you get together for the blog…you should do it more often! Ali-Shaun in the wrap dress…yes! And Meagan the little black dresses you tried on are perfection. Thank you for all of the great ideas!
