Before Christmas Sales!

There are many before Christmas sales going on right now, so I thought I would do a post with all of my previous outfits and how there are on sale right now.  Sadly, virtually everything I have featured in the past month or so, is sold out!  So, I searched some of the sales going on right now and found some cute things for you to think about.

I went on the Ann Taylor website to see if the black plaid coat I featured a few weeks ago was on sale and it was sold out, so while I looking around their website, I found this cute tunic.  It looks so comfortable and it is 50% off right now.

 I also found this cute camp shirt and it comes in these two different fabrics.  The leopard print is to in this year and the green one would look great with jeans because of the blue print on it.  The are both 50% off also.  The green one can be found here and the leopard print can be found here.

Anthropologie has a few sweaters on sale right now and this one caught my eye.  This red one really is cute with the denim shirt that the model has on.  It also comes in taupe, purple and dark grey.  You can find it here and it is 50% off!

 I loved the color of this sweater!  It would be fun to wear on gloomy winter days.  It is also 50% and comes in a medium pink color.  You can find it here.

On another note, I received an email from GHD Hair and they had a video for this cute hairstyle.
I tried it out and it was pretty easy and wasn't a total pinterest fail!  My hair isn't as long as the models hair but it was still fun to do.  You can find the written instructions as well as the video here

Have a great day and because of Christmas I will be back in two weeks!

A Fun Festive Top!

Good Morning!  I found this fun festive top the other day and I loved it so much, I thought I would share it with you.  I felt that it could be worn many ways, both casual and dressy.  So here we go!

I started by wearing it with some skinny jeans and my black suede booties.  I felt so festive in this outfit!  You can find the top here and it is on sale right now!  Here are some similar black booties.

I get chilly in the winter when I wear tops like this so I paired it with my white vest and I loved it and felt warm at the same time.  I have had my white vest for around 4 years and have really gotten alot of use out of it.  I found a similar vest here.  It's a little pricey, but I think you would really get your money's worth!

I tried it with my military vest and I liked it but I think I prefer the top with my white vest.

I put it with my jean jacket as another way to keep warm and I loved it this way too!

Then I changed into my black velvet pants for a dressier look and it thought it looked great also.

I took a side shot so you could see that the hemline is high/low which I also loved!

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season as much as I am.  It is a busy time of year, so remember to not be so busy that you feel stressed!

Have a great week and I'll be back next Tuesday!

The Sheaffer Lace Top

I love to read fashion blogs and one that I have followed from the day she started is called Sheaffer Told Me To.  I think she has been blogging for about 6 years and this year she hit it big by teaming up with Gibson to design her own top.  What a lucky girl!  I thought the top was darling so I ordered it in two colors to see how I could style it.

I did both colors with a pair of black velvet pants, a leopard belt and my leopard shoes I bought at an estate sale.  I decided to wear one of my favorite pair of earrings from Kendra Scott.  I thought both colors looked cute styled this way!  The lace top can be found here!

Then, I tried styling them with my green corduroy pants, leopard belt and suede boots.  Loved this look with both colors also!

For a more casual look, I decided to pair the top with skinny jeans, leopard belt and my leopard shoes.  I changed my shoes to my black boots and loved it that way too!

In the end, I decided I shouldn't keep the top in both colors, so I kept the burgundy one.  The white one needed to have a camisole paired with it because I felt that it was a little sheer in the back.  I tend to not wear tops as much if they need a camisole paired with them.  I don't know why, but it is just what I have noticed for myself.  Also, for sizing info, I sized up one size because the lace doesn't have much give to it and I wanted to be comfortable in it!

For colder days(like today!), I would put a blazer on for a dressier look, and a sweater or jean jacket for a more casual look.

Have a great day and I'll be back next Tuesday!

Kansas City Fashion Report!

 Every year my family goes to Kansas City to watch them light the Mayor's Christmas tree at Crown Center.  The Christmas season just doesn't seem as festive when we miss this event.  They have choirs singing holiday songs and after they light the tree there is fireworks.  It is just an awesome way to celebrate the beginning of the Christmas season.  

When I was there, I decided to do a little fashion report from Kansas City.  It seems like they are a year or so ahead of us in style(sometimes) and other times they have things that we would never considering wearing here in Wichita!

We walked around the Plaza on Saturday and went into Anthropologie.  This darling sweater paired with the ruffled scarf just looked so festive with a pair of skinny jeans.  The sweater is pricey, so I would wait for a sale before buying.  The only problem with that is then you can't wear during the Christmas season!  Fashion problems...LOL!

 This jacket is paired with some boot cut jeans and I thought it looked so warm and cozy!

This outfit also looked so cozy with the cream tunic and the warm sherpa lined sweater.  The red mittenssand hat give it a festive flair.

I am not sure how practical these fur lined mules are but I thought they were a cute find at Banana Republic!

On our way out of town on Saturday we stopped at Oak Park mall because, well Nordstrom's is there.  Who goes to KC and doesn't stop there!  I found this rack of leopard shoes, so they are a real thing this winter!

 Here is a closeup of the tennis shoes on the rack.  I probably wouldn't wear them to the Y but they are cute!

Some darling leopard sandals to go to a party in, and the cutest booties with a low heel on them!  I just noticed the booties are on sale right now!

I thought this tuxedo jacket paired with a denim shirt and pleated skirt were interesting and a little different.

These double frayed hem jeans looked so festive with the floral top at the Loft and the jeans are $29.00 today!  Also, the whole website at Loft is 50% off today with free shipping!

This look was at Macy's and I think some boys were getting a little bored at the mall.  LOL!

I thought this look was cute and simple, my favorite kind of outfit!  I don't own a pair of camo jeans, but this might convince me to buy some!

Well, I hope Kansas City style inspired to try new things with the clothing you already have.  I just love to take pictures of outfits and then try to find something in my closet similar and make it work!

Have a great day and I'll  be back next Tuesday!

Sweater Love!

Good Morning!  My post today is about some sweaters that I have recently purchased that I love!  (Well, also a pair of pants!)

Loft has been having a 40% off sale on and off all fall, so during one of those sales, I purchased this cream sweater with lace on the top.  I think that because it has lace on the top, it will work perfectly for the holiday season!

I styled it with this great pair of green corduroy pants that have cute zippers on the side.  These boots I recently found at Famous Footwear and I love them!

 The next two sweaters I purchased from Target and they both look cute with the green corduroy pants.  I also kept the denim shirt on underneath for both sweaters but you could also wear them alone on warmer days.  You can find the leopard one here, and the Fair Isle one here.

This was how the Fair Isle sweater was styled at Target the day I bought it.  I just can't decide if a fur vest is my style or not!

Getting back to the cream sweater, I just couldn't resist pairing with my leopard skirt!  I tucked it in but you could also leave it out for a different look.

On a different note, yesterday I found out that my book, Joyful Daily Stitching, has been recently translated into Spanish.  I am so excited about this and didn't even know it was going to happen, so it was a happy surprise! 

That's it for today, but I'll be back next Tuesday!

Have a great Thanksgiving,

Cute and Cozy

Today's post is about everything cozy!  I work from home, so quite often I wear clothes that are both cute and cozy!

So, I am a big fan of stripes and this sweatshirt was perfect for me!  I bought this at Old Navy about a month ago and this morning I could not find it online.  Maybe it is still in stores, but don't worry, I found another option!   

 I thought this sweatshirt on Amazon would be just as cute and it is a great price at $19.99!

 I paired my sweatshirt with a cozy green cardigan from Target for those really cold days.  I also have my favorite UGG slippers that I got for Christmas last year.  I know they are pricey, but I wear them everyday and they will last for years!

I also love this cowl neck tunic sweater from Loft and it comes in 6 different colors.  The one pictured is Wild Olive Heather.  A bonus for this sweater is that it is 40% off a Loft today with the code FLASH.  

I also own the tunic sweater in the Crumb Melange color and I paired it with the cardigan from Target for colder days.  It is both cute and cozy!  I am also wearing my favorite leopard earrings that you can find here.  The earrings come in 3 different sizes and my pair is size medium.

I was browsing the Nordstrom website this morning and I found this cute sweatshirt that would also be perfect for days you want to be cozy and it is on sale today for $29.40.  You can find it here.

Well I hope this helps you to look both cute and cozy this winter and I'll be back next Tuesday!
