Before we get started today, I wanted to pass along the information that I got an e-mail late last night saying that new markdowns had been added at Nordstrom.
NEW MARKDOWNS AT NORDSTROM PEOPLE!
SOMEBODY SOUND THE ALARM BELLS!
I didn’t have time to preview it for you like I normally do, but click HERE and see for yourself.
New items are organized by category, and I’m guessing there are some good deals!
New Markdowns will actually say “New Markdown”.
AND THERE ARE ALSO ITEMS THAT ARE ON SALE THRU TODAY ONLY!
Click HERE for Michael Kors watches that will no longer be on sale tomorrow! HURRY!
There are LOTS to choose from and they are GORGEOUS!
If you’ve been wanting one, forward this e-mail to whoever needs to see it asap with the subject line “BUY ME A WATCH PLEASE! PLEASE! LOVE YOU!”
LOTS and LOTS of Kate Spade stuff also!
Click HERE for Kate Spade sale items! Including watches, wallets, and jewelry!
Check out THIS watch that is now under $200 and THIS pretty pave bow pendant from Kate that is now under $50!
It will look great on it’s own or layered with other bracelets, and it’s fun to give designers for Christmas!
Seriously good deals girls!!!!! Don’t let them pass you by!
So, on the 6th Day of Christmas, I decided to get back to basics.
a classic Pinterest Told Me To recreation.
My sweet little town is COVERED in ice and we were going STIR CRAZY!
(If you follow me on instagram, then you’ve already seen this outfit,
but now you are going to get all of the deatils!)
so you get a graphic expressing my love.
And I just don’t love the outfit……
I love the individual pieces so much that I want to talk about each of them!
***MUST HAVE LEGGINGS***
We all know that the leggings were a MUST HAVE alert several weeks ago.
Well, it’s time to make them a Santa Alert too.
BECAUSE THEY JUST NEED TO BE.
If you have them, you understand why.
They are sooo comfortable, they look great, and they wash well.
It’s time to share the love people and get them for others for Christmas.
At $38 they are a great price point for a gift!
(And let me let you in on a little secret. I wore them to Thanksgiving lunch with my family with a cute Anthro tunic, we drove to the ranch and saw Chris’s family that night, I changed out of my tunic into a college t-shirt and slept in them that night, and then I threw on a sweatshirt and wore them the next day. NO LIE. I wore them for 2 days and nights straight. )
I promise you that EVERYBODY needs AT LEAST 1 pair of these leggings.
I have the grey and the black…and I’m getting the brown for Christmas.
My mom got them for her birthday, and my sister just ordered them for herself.
GET THEM NOW for yourself AND for the girls and ladies on your list.
And then on Christmas morning you can all sit around and talk about how smart I am. 🙂
add the leggings and wrap them up.
When I first got my Hunters, I was soooo nervous about ordering them and must have gone back and forth over 30 times. They were probably in my cart for at least a month before I took the plunge.
Now that I have them, I cannot believe it took me so long to get them.
They are CUTE AS CAN BE, but they are also functional.
I literally don’t know what I did on really rainy days without them.
If you don’t think you need them, check out this collage.
It’s a pretty convincing collage.
And if you need more convincing, look at this blog comment I received this morning:
Hi Sheaffer. I’ve been reading your blog since the summer but this is
my first time commenting. I just had to say thanks for convincing me to
order the Hunter boots. Just like you I had been wavering for a long
time but about a month ago after seeing one of your posts I finally bit
the bullet and bought them in navy. Since I am a Canadian girl, I also
ordered the Stripe Cuff Welly Socks. Today was the first snow day where
I could wear the boots with the socks and let me just say thank you!
Because of you I look cute, and my feet are also super warm and cozy. I
will be wearing these all winter with the socks and then in the spring
without the socks. Love your blog!
Thanks for taking the time to e-mail Shayna!
Also, since I now know how much I love my first pair (and how I wear them ALL the time), I am seriously thinking about asking for a 2nd pair for Christmas.
THESE are the ones I want.
Click HERE for all women’s Hunter boots at Nordstrom.
Click HERE for all women’s Hunter boots at Zappos.
Click HERE for all women’s Hunter boots at ShopBop.
(All have free shipping and free returns. I prefer to order from Nordstrom, but they all have a slight variance in selection and sizing, so I thought I would include all three sources.)
If you want them for yourself, just send this blog post to your Santa with the subject line.
I NEED THE RAIN BOOTS!
I will say that I do think there was one thing that my outfit was missing.
Am I right?
I needed the extra layer of warmth, and I would have loved the extra layer of cuteness! 🙂
***LONG TARGET TANKS***
Let’s talk about my new Target tanks.
Exact grey tank HERE , black, and white /
bright colors and stripes HERE
They are on sale now for $6.
I ordered black and grey, but now that I know how much I love them, I’m also getting white,
red, and the stripes.
Just think about the fact that you can order 5 tanks and only spend $30.
Fyi…I got mediums.
I hate that I can’t find the reader’s name who initially tipped me off to them.
THANK YOU FRIEND!
And here’s a tip.
If you hop over to target.com, don’t just get the tanks.
Target is having A TON of sales right now.
Click HERE and see all of the deals on their homepage.
ex.: save up to 25% on KitchenAid, save up to 40% on Canon Cameras,
buy one get one 50% off on toys.
Click HERE to shop the brands that are included in the toy sale. See below.
It’s on sale!
I’m 5’4″ and my tunic is a small. If you are taller or have a long torso you might want to consider sizing up if you are planning on wearing it with leggings!
Plus, J Crew Factory has a deal of the day.
Today it’s an additional 20% off your purchase!
And make sure you use the code 12DAYS for free shipping!
I’m also loving THIS one from Anthropologie right now!
And just think how much cuter this outfit would be if one of my new Target tanks (see above) was peeking out from under this shirt!
***SOFTEST SCARF EVER***
And you guys.
This is really and truly THE SOFTEST SCARF EVER.
Exact scarf HERE (my color is the pink smoke which is now sold out).
The scarf is an infinity scarf (so it styles itself).
And if you still haven’t jumped on the scarf bandwagon, this would be a perfect one to start with.
It’s light and airy and still has volume (but not too much).
Just wrap it around your neck twice and you’re good to go.
And I had a great idea last night!
HOW MUCH FUN would it be to not just give 1 scarf to a loved one…but 3!
The below 3 would be awesome. They are ALL infinity scarves and they are all greatness.
So, after I copied the above look, I hit up Pinterest to see if I could provide you with some more inspiration pics. I typed in “denim shirt with black leggings.”
I’ve got lots more denim looks in me.
For instance, and this is just off the top of my head…..
Maybe I’ll wear it belted at the waist with a pink belt with silver
hearts, white pleated shorts that hit just above the knee, and laceless
white keds with some white and blue plaid socks scrunched down around my
that’s been done……
since around 1986
I think the pic above was the first day of 6th grade.
And NOTHING says I own 6th grade like white pleated knee length shorts.
We’ve got another great one ladies!
$150 to Milk and Honey
(If Milk and Honey sounds familiar, but you just can’t place it….I first introduced you to Milk and Honey with my military jacket with the sweater back!)
And here’s what I love about Milk and Honey…
they have AWESOME and UNIQUE finds that are SUPER AFFORDABLE!
So, if I won the gift card, these are the 3 things I would get…..and I would still have $ left over!
This is called “dress”, but I would wear it with my leggings as a tunic.
I would also wear it with a cardi or jacket (because I don’t do open backs).
I thought this looked nice and cozy.
Love! Love! Love!
It’s a beautiful necklace for a great price!
I’m betting somebody on your Christmas list would LOVE this too!
Oh! And Brittany (the owner) just let me know that they just got THIS bracelet in!
It’s only $16!!!!
Excuse the giant arm and hand, and just focus on the beautiful and unique bracelet! LOVE!
I think this would look so cute with my MUST HAVE clean cuffed jeans
Oreos AND cheesecake?
