Happy Christmas Weekend! Can you believe it’s already here?!?!?聽 I took a few days off work this week to finish up my holiday shopping and have a spa day.聽 I think everyone should schedule a little mini spa day during December.聽 I left feeling so refreshed and ready to continue tackling all the holiday things.

With Christmas pretty much here, it’s time to start planning the perfect NYE outfit.聽 My plans tend to be a more low key, casual night at a friend’s house, so I love a casual New Year’s Eve outfit idea.聽 I went with the super chic all black and this gorgeous gray vest to dress the look up a little and keep that super chic vibe.

This vest was one of my sale splurges during Black Friday from Club Monaco.聽 I have been searching for a great classic blazer style vest I could use to dress up an outfit or pair with my spring dresses to make them more office friendly.聽 I kept landing back on the Club Monaco site.聽 So when I went to order my trench coat, I also checked out the vest section.

This gray color is even more gorgeous in person and is going to pair perfectly with spring pastels.聽 I will be sure to style it again when the Spring weather hits.聽 I also love the length and overall fit.聽 I think it hits at just the right spot on my 5’3 frame.聽 I opted to size down and order an XS to achieve a more fitted look.聽 It comes with a belt, but I don’t plan on wearing it that way.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.聽 I hope every one of you has a very Merry Christmas weekend!

Hello friends! I’m sharing another Black Friday find and one closet must have that I’ve been on the hunt for for several years.聽 A classic trench coat is a major closet staple for anyone.聽 For years, I have been searching for just the right one.聽 Perfect neutral color, right length, classic style, and the right price.

Club Monaco is one of my top places to window shop for classic pieces.聽 The price range is a little out of my usual budget, but it’s one place I always visit during big sales.聽 I found this trench coat on their site a few months ago, and I have been patiently waiting for Black Friday in hopes of a good discount.聽 Ya’ll, I scored this jacket for over 50% off!!聽 The quality of the jacket is amazing too.聽 It’s perfectly cut and lined on the inside.聽 I can tell it’s a coat I will have for decades.

Ya’ll be sure and scroll down to share your latest outfit ideas.聽 Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday! This outfit was inspired by one of my girlfriends who asked me for a casual Christmas outfit idea that featured flat shoes.聽 Apparently it’s hard to chase toddlers around in heels. 馃槈聽 I picked up these Tory Burch travel flats over Black Friday.聽 I’d been eyeing them for awhile in this gorgeous French Gray color.聽 I spotted a friend wearing them, and asked how she liked them.聽 She went on for like 5 minutes about how these were the most comfortable shoes she has ever worn.聽 I agree 100%.聽 They are like walking on clouds and worth the investment!聽 When I see them on sale again, I will probably buy a nude or black pair.

Another Black Friday purchase was this gray cashmere sweater.聽 I love the fit of this sweater.聽 It is fitted but loose. Also it’s cashmere, so really soft and warm.聽 This sweater is lightweight, so all my friends with warmer winters, this would be a great sweater to add to your closet.聽 It comes in a total of 14 color options and is still on sale.

I hope ya’ll have a great weekend and finish all that Christmas Shopping!聽 This really is the last weekend for聽 shipping before having to pay crazy shipping costs.聽 If you still need some ideas, be sure to check out my holiday gift ideas HERE.聽 Thanks for stopping by ya’ll!
