Happy Black Friday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I'm currently up at the lake, enjoying some shopping online while I digest from the mountain of food that I ate last night.  If you saw my Insta Stories earlier this week, then you know I did a little pre-Black Friday shopping, and today I'm sharing some of my finds along with my favorite sales taking place this weekend.

This is the outfit that I wore last weekend while in Vermont, and I wanted to share it for two reasons. First, because I love the mix of textures and print, and second because my favorite cardigan is on sale!  Although my faux leather pants are no longer available (cry), I did link the updated pair, along with a similar pair for only $49.  I recently got these leopard booties, and love them!  Hurry, they are 40% this weekend!

I've linked all of my favorite Black Friday sales below, along with some of my top sale picks.  Also, many of you know that I'm a LipSense distributor, and I'm running some great sales in my Facebook group.  If you've been curious about LipSense, it's the perfect time to try out the AMAZING lip color.  You can check out the deals here.  Happy Shopping!

Easy Thanksgiving Day Look

Thanksgiving outfits 2017

The countdown is on.  My favorite holiday is less than a week away, and in addition to planning the pies that I'm going to bake, I've been racking my brain with what I'm going to wear.  Being comfortable is key, but of course I want my outfit to be cute and look put together.  I recently got this dress from Charming Charlie, and after trying it on, I realized it would make a perfect option for Thanksgiving Day.  Not only is the trapeze style super cute (and comfy), but the flowey cut will allow me to eat all the food I want, while hiding the food baby!  For extra warmth (because you know I'm always cold), I paired it with a faux fur vest.  I love how it gave the dress a little more shape, while adding a fun texture and a cozy feel (a chunky cardigan would also be a great option).  If you follow my Insta Stories, then you know that this is the fur vest that I found on Gilt for half the price, and I can see myself wearing it throughout the holiday season.

Without the extra layer, I found this dress to be a little shapeless, so I added a belt to make it more flattering.  I finished my look with OTK boots, which are my go-to when wearing dresses in the winter, as they add extra warmth.  When the temperatures drop even more, I'll add tights to finish this look, or I can see myself pairing it with a pair of faux leather leggings.

If you're looking for affordable clothing and accessories, then I suggest checking out Charming Charlie.  It has become one of my favorite places for finding fun, and affordable, statement jewelry.  This dress is my first clothing purchase from them, and for $35 I'm impressed with the quality and fit.  Have you shopped at Charming Charlie?

Burgundy Sweater Two Ways For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving outfit ideas

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week?  It's my all time favorite holiday, and to say that I'm excited is an understatement.  Bring on the stuffing and apple pie!  Which brings me to the task of finding the perfect outfit.  Because I tend to over indulge on the holiday, finding an outfit that is both cute and comfortable is key.  Since we'll be at the lake this year, and our Thanksgiving dinners are on the casual side, I'm thinking that a cute sweater is the way to go.  This ruffle sleeve chenille one couldn't be more perfect!  The burgundy color makes it festive for Thanksgiving, and the ruffled sleeves add a fun touch.

Because I want to be casual, yet still look put together, I'll most likely be wearing black jeans.  I love how a high rise solid black jean can give off a dressier feel.  Plus, I find the high rise cut to be both comfortable, and super flattering, as they suck everything in!  If you'd rather wear an elastic waistband, then I suggest swapping the jeans out for these leggings, which I can't stop wearing lately.  I thought that finishing with a leopard pump would add a fun pop of print, and love the block heel on this pair.  If you don't want to wear a heel, choose a leopard flat or bootie instead.

What I love about this ruffle sleeve sweater, is that is can easily be dressed up.  If your Thanksgiving dinner is more formal, swap out the jeans for pleated midi skirt, and finish your look with a high heel or over-the-knee boot.  For a little extra coziness, wrap yourself up in a plaid scarf.
