THIS IS AN ADDITION TO FRIDAY’S POST IN RESPONSE TO ALL THE GIRLS COMING OVER FROM SHAY’S INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT TO LEARN ABOUT THE BLARDIGAN!
KEEP READING TO SEE ABOUT MY NEW RED HUNTERS!
If you missed it earlier, you have to click HERE to read all about it.
Seriously, click HERE to read about this FABULOUS item if you missed it earlier.
Several things that you need to know about the Blardigan:
The arms are fitted and the draping is so SO flattering.
So, even though it’s a roomy piece of
clothing, it still shows your shape nicely. The fitted arms are what I
feel makes it okay to wear it out of the house.
Think about how amazing this would be for traveling.
Since there are only two sizes:
small/medium and large/x-large….the sizing is very forgiving, which
makes it super easy to order it as a gift.
very pregnant friend Nikki (gonna pop any day now) tried on mine and it
looked GREAT on her too! It kind of just molds to your shape! If you’re pregnant, this could be GREAT for
you both DURING and AFTER your pregnancy!
(Several reviewers even said how they wore it home from the hospital after having their baby.)
Notice how long it is in the back. It hits
mid-thigh which means it would totally cover your bootie and would be
PERFECT for layering with leggings!
Thanks Shay for sending your friends my way!
OKAY…ON TO REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING!
Remember when I posted this picture a couple of weeks ago?
Here they are on Christmas morning in all of their glory.
Click HERE for my Pillar Box Red Hunter boots.
(And for another red option, click HERE for Brick Red Hunters available at
Zappos that are on sale!)
I haven’t seen both in person to know the differences in color, but in pictures, I think the Brick Red has orange undertones where as the Pillar Box Red has more pinky undertones.
But I really don’t know. I’m kind of just guessing. I know. I’m sooooo helpful.
By Christmas afternoon I had turned to Pinterest for a little inspiration.
TELL ME THIS COLLAGE DOESN’T MAKE YOU HAPPY.
That’s right. You can’t.
It’s RED Hunters WITH A MILITARY JACKET.

|inspiration via Atlantic Pacific HERE|
This is one of those outfits where I would never have thought of this combination on my own,
but now that I see it together, it just makes sense!
All of the primary colors together just work.
Once again, THANK YOU PINTEREST!
And here’s a collage with a close up of the boots and my bracelets.
BIG BLING bracelet, all sold out 🙁
(But keep your fingers crossed girls! I’ve been exchanging e-mails with an online store who thinks they are going to be getting these exact bracelets in stock sometime over the next couple of weeks.
If and when they get them, I will post them as soon as I know!)
Stella and Dot Renegade bracelet HERE
I’m going to WEAR THE HECK out of these boots.
You are going to be seeing them a lot. Here’s what I’m saying, if it’s raining, these babies will be on my feet. There are so many Pinterest outfits that I already have ear-marked to recreate.
Yes, they’re expensive, but my Cost Per Wear is going to be teeninsy. It’s a word.
I PROMISE you that once you have a pair of Hunters, you will wonder how you ever made it through a rainy day without them.
AND…just like me….many of you will wear them SO MUCH that you will totally
be able to justify a 2nd pair.
WANT TO GET THE LOOK FOR YOURSELF?
Well, I’ve done the work for you…just see below:
blue gingham shirt HERE at GAP (royal blue and navy blue choices AND ON SALE!)
yellow cords HERE (and still on sale!)
Stella and Dot Renegade bracelet HERE
Pillar Box Red Hunter boots HERE
Navy Peacoat HERE
(Only large left. For size reference, I wear a large in this coat.)
You’ve seen me in this coat before in black on the blog. I love it. The collar is what I love most about the coat. It can either be popped up, or it can lay down flat.
(oops…i put the black coat in the collage, but it is available in navy too)
This one has toggles..and you know how I love a toggle.
If you listen closely you might be able to hear Shay putting this coat in her cart as we speak.
It’s 33% off right now, which makes it under $100!
It comes in both regular and petites.
And I’m thinking I’m going to HAVE to get
THIS scarf or THIS scarf.
I love LOVE LOVE them.and I’m thinking one of them (or BOTH of them) will be PERFECT when paired with my new Wellies!
So…what do you think? Black or Navy?
I’m dreaming of a plain grey v-neck, my MUST HAVE skinny jeans (HERE), my new red Hunters, my military jacket , and one of these scarves!
Here’s the look without the cardigan, and with my new bag I from the hubby!
My exact bag seems to be sold out.
Click HERE for a Rebecca Minkoff bag that is the same color (but a bit smaller than mine). The color is called “ash grey”, but I think it definitely has some light green tones in it.
OR Click HERE for a Rebecca Minkoff bag that is the same size and style, but in different colors (scarlet, nude, royal blue, and black).
I LOVE that it can be a crossbody, and I ADORE the studs!
And lucky you guys…..it’s DOUBLE POINTS today at Nordstrom!
That’s just about the only excuse I need to shop! 🙂
Don’t go yet…..
BECAUSE I’M ANNOUNCING A NEW CONTEST!
I thought about this Christmas Eve, and then when one of my favorite readers (Hi Sarah!) e-mailed me yesterday with the same idea, I knew I had to do it.
|image created by Andrea|
I know many of you received Pinterest Told Me To items for Christmas,
so I was thinking……
I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to get pictures of all of you ladies in your new
Pinterest Told Me To goods!
Send me 1 picture for each item. And you have to be wearing the item!
I don’t just want a picture of a scarf laying on your bed. I want to see YOU in the scarf!
(If I receive one picture with 4 items in it, you will only get 1 entry).
I will make collages of all of your entries, post all of the collages, and then draw 1 winner with a random number generator.
I think it will be SO MUCH FUN to see what everybody got!
MAKE SURE YOU SEND YOUR PICTURES IN BY MONDAY, December 30th.
I’m going to post the collages and the winner on January 1st!
This Stella and Dot Wesley pendant.
You have until Monday to e-mail me your pictures to (but please do it as soon as possible):
The collages will be shown and the winner will be announced on Wednesday, January 1st.
Come on girls! Send them in!
(Whenever I do contests like this I’m always scared I’m going to get like 2 entries.)
Have a great weekend everybody!
The enabler in me is coming out.
I was totally done with the post, and then I thought about how I should probably highlight some of my favorite items that are new to the Nordstrom sale.
Click HERE for these Steve Madden booties at 20% off.
I featured this hoodie just a couple of weeks ago.
It’s soooo cozy! A medium fit me fine, but I actually like the roominess of the large on this one.
Click HERE (50% off!)
Here it is on me. I was wearing a medium in the coral and a large in the grey. I preferred the large.
A couple of more colors of the MUST HAVE Shirt went on sale HERE.
Remember to order a size down. For size reference, I am an s-small in this shirt.
40% off, making the shirt under $35!
And I’ve shown THIS before too. Loved it. Now it’s 50% off!
See, here it is on me. I can’t remember if this was a small or a medium. I think it was a medium to make it long enough for me to be able to wear it with leggings.
Oh wait! I just found a picture I took of the tag. I was wearing a small in this tunic.
The clean cuffed MUST HAVE jeans are a part of the sale!!!!
Or if you want to shop broad categories:
This Goodnight Macaroon coat I featured a couple of weeks ago is now 30% off!
Which means it’s UNDER $65! For a FABULOUS coat!
And I just saw THIS on my friend Melanie’s blog just now!
I knew I had to put it on here because I knew you people would love it too!
HOW GREAT would this be with our MUST HAVE leggings?
I even like it at full price, but I adore it now it’s on sale.
