Hope everyone had a happy holiday weekend! I spent most of the day visiting Steven at the station since he had to work Christmas Day. Luckily, he was off Christmas Eve so we picked up some last minute gifts, necessary alcohol and grabbed tacos and elote for dinner from our favorite down-and-dirty taco shop, Fuel City. Yes, it’s at a gas station, and yes they are literally the best tacos in Dallas. Trust me. We ate at home and watched Home Alone and Love Actually and ended up knocking out before we even had a chance to make hot chocolate with whipped cream vodka, our Christmas drink of choice. Ugh, we’re getting so old.
Now that Christmas is over (though, we still have 6 days left of Hanukkah), I’m trying to get back into the swing of things and adjust to normalcy again. The holidays interrupt daily routines and I tend to get a bit off track of literally everything – the blog, work, laundry, etc. I’ve fallen behind on a lot so this week I’m focusing on getting everything back to normal. Starting with the blog!
This look is a favorite of mine and is usually what you’ll find me running around in day to day. Loafers, skinny jeans, t-shirt and jacket. It’s just so easy to coordinate a ton of different looks all with these key pieces. This faux suede jacket was a steal at $25!! A few other good faux suede jacket options are this and this – both currently on sale. I also love a good faux fur stole. It’s been unseasonably warm in Dallas, so busting out my faux fur jackets and scarves isn’t exactly ideal. This stole makes it easy to still get the same luxe look, without overheating. I’ve been pairing it with leather jackets, blazers and even my favorite denim jacket. It’s just an easy way to elevate any jacket and make it winter appropriate.
Besides a few of the jackets I mentioned above, there is a ton of good stuff on sale. You guys… a ton. Like, hold my wallet because things are about to spiral out of control lol. I did a little shopping online yesterday online because most of the boxing day sales had started and I was afraid everything I wanted was going to sell out. See everything I scored on sale below – so much good stuff!!
The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is going on right now and O.M.G. there are like, a million things on sale. We’re talking awesome pieces under $50… at Nordstrom. Say no more. A few standout favorites were these jeans and this jacket. Scroll through the widget below to see what items made it to my shopping cart.
I love Boohoo. I don’t think I talk about this retailer enough. Think Forever 21 prices but more basic, trendy pieces that don’t have awkward phrases and patches on the back of everything (so annoying, right?). Also, they almost always have sales going on… off regular priced merchandise. What’s not to love? The entire site is currently 40% off with code TOOGOOD! I immediately grabbed this coat (I’m like, giddy excited for this to arrive) and a few sweater dresses like this and this. See everything I ended up purchasing below as well as a few other amazing picks.
This is a surprising one. I don’t shop at Ann Taylor often, but they have quite a few good pieces right now. The entire site is currently 40% off full price with code SHOP40 and up to 70% off sale! I picked up this bell sleeve sweater and these killer black boots. And I’m still debating on pulling the trigger on this cozy cardigan. See more great sale picks below!
H&M’s sale section is currently up to 80% off and there are some great items available. I’m pretty excited about this jacket going on sale! Also can’t wait to wear this and this. See the rest of my top sale picks below.
With the entire site 50% off, this is the time to go ham. I love Express for their trendy, basics but they’re a little over priced in my opinion. I usually only buy things from Express once they go on sale, and this is one I wait for all year to stock up on great pieces. I fell head over heels for this coat. I’m also obsessed with this jacket.
