Style A Friend & Best Black Friday Sales (Gifts Under $25!)

Hi friend!  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I had my family and Brian over and it was a lovely time, pretty casual with lots of good food.  Too much in fact!  I’ve already been eating all the desserts all week!  Is that you too?

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 this weekend!

We ordered lots of things from Nordstrom and are taking advantage of their Black Friday sale- up to 50% off tons of good things and FREE shipping!

Black Friday Sales Start Now! | My Picks from Your Favorite Stores & New Outfits

Hi friend!  Happy almost Thanksgiving!  Can you believe it’s tomorrow?!  I’ve prepped as much as I can already by laying out my recipes and ingredients, and the table was set about a month ago! I just need to tidy the house, figure out what I’m gonna wear, and start cooking!

I’m so looking forward to it.  We did a little play date with the cousins yesterday and it always makes me thankful for how tight our small family is.

We lost my dad many years ago to cancer, but I feel like he would be satisfied to see how close we’ve remained and how we all make efforts to get together often.

Winter Styles Under $50

Winter Styles Under $50

Hi friend!  I’m so happy you’re here!  It’s a great day because: 1) it’s date night, and 2) we have a cold front that’s bringing our 80s temps into the 60s! Yay for that!

I’m so looking forwarding to wearing a sweater, jeans and boots to dinner tonight.  We’re going on a double date with one of my oldest friends, so that will be a great time.  I haven’t seen her since May!

Today, I have a few new outfits to share with you, and you’ll also get a sneak peek of the Christmas decor in my bedroom.

A big YAY for Friday friend!  Do you have any fun Halloween plans?  We’ll be trick or treating of course, but I’m mostly looking forward to catching up on rest!

And, I’ll probably start taking down my Fall decor in preparation for the Christmas holidays!  I like to have a little break between my Fall decor and holiday decorating, so I’ll clear everything out, put it away, and start with a fresh, clean slate!

Since I love to share those things with you in time to decorate your own home, I always start my holiday decorating early.

Sweater Dresses & Booties

Sweater Dresses & Booties

Hi friend!  It’s almost Friday and I’m really looking forward to the weekend!  I still need a break from last week and weekend! 😉

In good news, we had a cool front roll into Houston which took our 90 degree/90% humidity days to the mid seventies!  What a blessing and it feels so good to be outside!  In a few weeks Daylight Savings will end and then it will really start feeling like Fall!

With this change in weather, I’m excited to share several darling sweater dresses and also boots and booties!  For the sweater dresses,

Hi friend!  I hope your week is going amazing!  We just sent out the Save the Date for our Annual Favorite Things party, and I’m so giddy for that one!  It’s always a blast to get together with the girls and laugh, talk and see what everyone’s favorite things were that year.  We’re capping it at $30 this year and I’ll be sure to share all of the goodies with you!

That party is one we wear pajamas to, but if you have any other holiday events or parties, you’ll be so excited for today’s post!

Fall Fashion at Walmart

Fall Fashion at Walmart

Hi friend!  Welcome back to my blog and hello if you’re new here!  It’s a fresh, new week and Houston weather is showing off for it! We had a glorious cool front blow in on Friday night and the weekend was in the mid 70’s during the day and mid 50’s at night.

That was a much needed reprieve from the 90s we had before that!  Houston is always slow to get the Fall memo, but when it does, it feels SO GOOD!

Loft Haul & It’s ALL on Sale!

Hi friend! Yay for Friday!  We had a short week here since the kids were off school for Columbus Day, but that always seems to make the rest of the week busier!  I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend.

We have Jordan’s soccer game on Saturday and the Houston forecast is looking PERFECT!  We’re expecting a cool front tonight that will put us at a high of 75 and low of 55.  That will be glorious! Especially since we were sweating our buns off at last Saturday’s game!

If you missed it this week, I shared a new Loves Giveaway

20 New Items for Your Fall Wardrobe

20 New Items for Your Fall Wardrobe

Hi friend!  We’re back in the swing of things!  My weekend wore me out and I was so pooped yesterday!  It took me all day to recover- but it was well worth it!

I’m happy to be partnering with Nordstrom today to share 20 new items for your Fall wardrobe.  Nordstrom is always one of my favorite places to shop online because of their styles, easy to navigate website and big, clear photos of the items.  I also appreciate their top notch customer service and convenient, buy online, pick up in store option.

I found 20 things that would make great additions to your Fall wardrobe- everything from jeans to tops to boots and sneakers and a soft pajama/lounge set!

How’s your week going friend? I spend most of yesterday trying to get my life back in order after being out of town and it always takes a minute to catch back up.

Also, I realized late in the day that it was Jordan’s first soccer practice yesterday!  It’s her first time playing an organized sport and she’s so excited!  Those kiddos are so cute, I could barely stand it!

I was browsing Loft online and it’s seriously getting me excited for changing leaf colors, Fall lattes, and sweaters! I found some Fall pieces that are gorgeous for this time of year.

Help Me Pack for NYC

Help Me Pack for NYC

Hi friend!  We’ve got rain, rain, rain here in Houston and so much that school dismissed early yesterday and is closed today.  We don’t have good drainage, so flooding is always an issue when we get too much rain too quickly.  I’m hoping everyone stays safe.

I’m heading to NYC on Thursday to meet Brian and, in preparation for packing, I tried on some outfits that I may want to bring with.  On the agenda is two client/friend dinners, Brian’s birthday dinner, and walking around the city just sightseeing and popping into different places.

It’s supposed to be between 70-80 degrees with a 30-50% chance of rain.

A Few New Things & Labor Day Sales

A Few New Things & Labor Day Sales

Hi friend! I hope you are having a wonderful long weekend!

Brian and I had a great time at the camp in Falfurrias, Texas and getting out in the country for a few days did us good!  Things seem to slow down when you get away from the city and it’s a welcome change of pace.

We hung out with friends, ate delicious food (that we didn’t have to cook!), fished in Port Mansfield, and napped.  This was my first time bay fishing for trout and I didn’t catch anything, but Brian did!

Outfits Lately

Outfits Lately

Hi friend!  Can you believe we’re at the  end of August already?  It’s crazy because September to December always seems to go so fast!  But I’m really ready for this time of year.  We could use some cooler temps, that’s for sure.  But, Fall weather is always slow to make its way to Houston.

Today I have a round-up of Outfits Lately that hopefully inspires your own wardrobe.  It’s easy for me to wear loungewear everyday since I work from home, but honestly, I’m so much more productive when I make the effort to put on an outfit!

Old Navy Style

Hi friends!  Are we soooo happy it’s Friday?!  I know I am!  This was our first full week back to school and it came with some exhausted kiddos.  Getting into a new routine is a challenge and my son also started sports, so that’s another change.

Most nights, I went to bed with my kindergartener (early!) so luckily mom stayed rested!

Brian and I had a much needed date night at Savoir last night and it was so good to catch up and talk about everything that’s been going on lately.

It’s been a heavy week with all of the world events.

Target Style | 15 Almost-Fall Outfits

Hi friends!  I hope you are doing well and enjoying your week!  We’ve been having rain, rain, rain and yesterday lost power for a several hours.  It’s always so surreal because, out of habit, you keep switching on lights when you walk into a room, but it stays dark. :/

Brain gave me these battery powered light switches during our winter storm last year.  They are so handy and super bright!

Hi friends!  Happy Monday!  It’s the start of a brand new week, and our first full week of school!

I already know this week will be more challenging and I’m planning to get us to bed early because it’s sure to be exhausting.  We all took long naps on Sunday and it felt so good!  Then, while the kids were still asleep and the house was all quiet, I did my Sunday cleaning- got the floors vacuumed and mopped and finished all the laundry!  #winning!

I’m so glad because, when I went to get in bed on Saturday night,

20 Nordstrom Sale Fall Outfits

Hi friends!  I hope y’all are having a wonderful week!  I can’t believe how excited I was to get my new refrigerator yesterday!  But, it makes such a difference in the whole look of the kitchen, not to mention the layout of the fridge makes me just want to stand there with the doors open, gazing inside!

We’re lucky to have a space inside our pantry that was designed to hold a second fridge, so I put my old one there for now and I’m already loving having the ‘extra’ room.  I kept all the ice cream and frozen desserts in that one!
