FAVORITE #1: ANOTHER READER E-MAIL
On Monday I dedicated a post to answering some reader e-mails. I got a lot of great feedback, so I plan on making this a monthly series! I did get another e-mail though that I thought I would go ahead and highlight today (in case these babies sell out)!
Hi Sheaffer! I’ve watched you wear camo pants for years, but I never had the courage to try them until this year. (I’m a little bit older than you, and I was always scared I was too old.) But I saw a friend wearing them, and she was too cute in them, so I decided I should try them for myself. I ordered the pair you talked about a couple of months ago, and even though I’m normally a size 6, the junior’s sizing did not work well on me. Do you have any suggestions for grown up camo pants? If there is such a thing? 🙂 Thanks for all that you do. Michelle
There is DEFINITELY such a thing Michelle. I ordered THESE pants because of your e-mail! I don’t need them for myself (as you already know, I own 2 pairs of camo pants), but I thought lots of readers might be interested! They are from Wit and Wisdom, a brand that so many of you already know and love.
Here’s a close up so you can get a good feel for the pattern and color. I’m wearing a 4, which is true to size for me, but I might could have sized down because hey have quite a bit of stretch in them. They also come in a solid dark olive and a solid tan color.
FAVORITE #2: MICHELE WATCHES
I’ve admired Michele watches for several years. My sister got one quite awhile ago (for an amazing deal), and I always gaze at hers with love. 🙂
Click HERE for all of the watches included in the sale (that I think ends tomorrow). I actually put the deal on facebook yesterday and asked for comments from people that have a Michele watch. (They are quite an investment and I wanted to see what people thought!) Click HERE to read the comments. Everybody RAVED about their Michele watches and talked about how timeless they are. A couple people even talked about how they’ve had theirs for over 10 years and still wear it!
FAVORITE #3: THESE EARRINGS
All 3 pairs of the earrings below are on constant rotation with me. I’ve had some questions about the sizing of the earrings, so I thought it was a fun idea to put all of them in a pic together so you could really get a good feel for their sizes. I’ve had the Gorjana hoops for 3 years now, and I still wear them at least 3 times a week each and every week. They are pricey at $60, but WELL WORTH IT in my book. The teardrops are my newest addition, and I really like them too! And the BP hammered hoops are just such a great price. I don’t like them as much as the Gorjana’s, but at $12 they are a fantastic alternative.
FAVORITE #4: MY NEW PLAID TOP
Y’all! Look at this new plaid shirt I got! It’s a classic black and white color combo, but with a super modern feel because of the cut of the top. It’s cropped (but not too cropped!), gathered at the waist with tiny little pleats, and has a contrasting plaid at the neckline and cuffs. It does require me to wear a cami under it, and I wear a black one. If I can get it together, I hope to have several outfits to show you with this top for Monday’s post!

Grey bootie choices (several ON SALE):
FAVORITE # 5: SIGNATURESOFT top
I literally cannot stop wearing this signaturesoft cowl neck top . AND RIGHT NOW IT’S 40% OFF with the code FRIENDS. It’s just so dang cozy and PERFECT for the weather we are having right now. I snapped a quick picture heading out the door to do errands on Saturday. I actually wore the exact same outfit on Saturday night, except with booties and my hair down (and make-up done)…which made it dressier! 😉
I put this image on facebook yesterday to show you several tops I’ve highlighted in the past that are now on sale. All tops are true to size. Remember to use the code FRIENDS for 40% OFF.
FAVORITE #6: DROP WAIST DRESS
Okay…so this dress. I’m wanting it to be a favorite, but I’m not totally sold on the pattern and colors. However, I am 110% sold on the fit. I’m wearing a petite small in the dress, and I’m almost 5’4″. Anthropologie is also offering an additional 25% OFF of items already on sale. I’m totally digging THIS long striped cardigan (with FANTASTIC reviews).
FAVORITE # 7: THIS VEST (IF I WAS TALLER)
I showed this vest to y’all on the blog a couple of Fridays ago. I knew I loved it, but I figured I was going to need to be taller to pull it off. AND I WAS RIGHT. It definitely overwhelmed my frame, and I needed at least a couple of more inches to be able to wear it (without it wearing me). HOWEVER, if I was taller, I think it would be a favorite. You tall girls need to get it. And then I’ll be jealous when you wear it. Warning, the BP white tee I’m wearing should only be worn when layering. It’s a great price, and I like that it’s thin when layering (so I don’t get too hot)…but it’s definitely too thin to wear on it’s own.
Here’s the back of it. The crease needs to be ironed out of it (I had just taken it out of the shipping box), but I wanted you to see the length of the back.
FAVORITE #8: SANTA ALERTS
Well, it’s that time of year! Every blog post (or at least every couple of blog posts) I will be highlighting an item that I think is perfect for gifting. I call them SANTA ALERTS!
I’m going to start out with THE BEST GIFT FOR YOUR HUBBY OR SON. I talk about it every single time I talk about gift ideas for men…but I’m telling you…it’s THE PERFECT GIFT for just about every guy. Chris has had his for over 3 years now, and it still works perfectly.
And talk about WOW FACTOR when he opens it up. If you give it, you will be a hero! He will take it everywhere and can play the music that is on his phone anywhere. We use it on the porch at the ranch house, we take it to the neighbor’s, we use it by the pool, and it’s great when you’re grilling out or tailgating. I plan on having a more comprehensive gift guide for guys sometime in the next several weeks…but this is my #1 recommendation. And I wanted to talk about it today because right now it’s $20 OFF!!!!! Click HERE for the Bose Wireless Speaker.
And if you have a hard to buy for lady on your list, you can’t go wrong with Votivo candles and diffusers. Red Currant is my absolute favorite scent. The diffuser will last for at least 6 months (I keep mine in the guest bathroom), and people will always be asking you what smells so good!
Have a wonderful weekend with your people! See you on Monday!
