Okay, ladies. I’m sorry to have to do this. I don’t want to sound alarm bells, but I think it’s time to go ahead and sound a couple of alarm bells. Because it’s November 19th. And just in case you didn’t know, Thanksgiving is Thursday. And Christmas is December 25th. And there’s 36 shopping days until Christmas. INCLUDING TODAY.
But don’t worry, I got you.
Today I’ve teamed up with Shopstyle and a family of brands that includes Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, and Athleta. I’m going to show some darling outfits and highlight some great gift ideas from each of the brands. It’s my hope that today I’m going to streamline some of your Christmas shopping for you! Since these brands are a family, you can shop all of them at the same time, and you can checkout with items in your cart from all of them at the same time. It’s so incredibly convenient, and when you’re working with 4 separate stores, you can be sure to find great items for everybody on your list!
And great news! They all have some incredible deals happening today that y’all definitely need to know about. The outfits I’m about to show have pieces from all 4 stores, so I want to go ahead and highlight all the specials that are happening right now, since many of the items I’m highlighting are included in the sales promotions.

Now, before we get to gift ideas, I want to highlight some SERIOUSLY cute clothes. GAP and Old Navy are ALL ABOUT being bright and cheerful this season, and I’m totally on board. I ran to both stores a couple of weeks ago and was blown away by their colorful and happy clothes. Even without being red and green Christmas plaid, their clothes are festive and joyful! All of the bright colors just make me happy!
I got Carter in on the fun for this shoot, and he really hammed it up. Make sure you head over to instastories today for some fun boomerangs. He was FULL of ideas for what he thought would be great ideas for these shots. And you know what, he was right! We had a ball!
My sweater is ONLY $20 today (only today!)!!! It comes in 6 total colors, and I’ve already worn it twice since getting it last week. It’s a good one! I’m wearing a small and it’s still a relaxed fit. The scarf is 40% OFF and my jeans are 50% OFF if you have a GAP card (40% OFF otherwise). TONS OF AMAZING DEALS!
Carter is wearing head to toe GAP and it’s all on sale. Use the code CARDBF if you are a cardholder to get 50% OFF. If not a cardholder, use the code GIFT to get 40% OFF!
The whole wearing the wreath thing was his idea. And what can I say, it worked.
Wreath as a hula hoop? #nailedit
This kid cracks us up all day, every day.
And he’s cute too. He’s also kind, respectful, and just a joy to be around.
And I LOVE it when he wears a button up with a sweater over it. I think it’s such a cute look, and I always make sure it happens for his yearly pictures and for church on Christmas Eve!
We rarely have to get on to him, but Chris *might* have caught me right in the middle of a “mommy moment”. #allegedly
If I recall, I was saying something to the effect of “I’m not kidding, quit singing when you’re supposed to be smiling.”
Let’s talk about my outfit for a minute. The sweater and the scarf are both from Old Navy, and I’m obsessed with both. The sweater is soft as can be and has a relaxed funnel neck that I adore. And the scarf is going to pretty much make every outfit cuter. The jeans are super stretchy and flattering. And the sneaks are from Athleta and are as comfy as all get out. The neutral color of these sneaks will go with everything! Lastly, my earrings are from Banana Republic!
This is the perfect outfit to run around town in. In fact, I wore this outfit just last week running around town. And then again yesterday. Yep, it’s that good. Both the sweater and the scarf would make excellent gifts as well. I’m wearing a small in the sweater, and it still has a very relaxed fit. I’m wearing my regular 27s in the jeans and the shoes are true to size as well.
And just for the fun of keeping it real…don’t worry, not all shots were good.
But we sure did have fun.

And just because there are too many cute sweaters and scarves available right now (good for you AND for gifts), I wanted to highlight several different outfit combos that I put together.
These outfits just make me happy. And they are perfect for running around town during the holiday season. And again, many of the pieces I’m wearing are also perfect for gifting!
This black sweater is a great basic to have in your closet, but it comes in TONS of color options as well. It’s ONLY $18.50 today!!!! And don’t you love how the scarf changes the entire outfit? It makes the black sweater SO! MUCH! FUN! And check out the darling black sneakers.
You can’t get any more cozy than this sherpa popover, and it’s 40% OFF TODAY! And look at the contrasting color hiding in the stand up collar! LOVE! It also comes in navy, grey, white, and a buffalo check!
And do you see my earrings? They are the perfect little blingy hoops and would make a great stocking stuff with the sale price.
A pink and red striped sweater with a multi colored color block scarf? Yes, please!!! Just try to wear this outfit and not smile! And notice the cognac tote/cross body. It’s a dupe of a popular favorite, and it’s an amazing price.
Remember, if you are a GAP cardholder, use the code CARDBF if you are a cardholder to get 50% OFF. If not a cardholder, use the code GIFT to get 40% OFF!
And this chunky scarf is EVERYTHING. It would go with pretty much any top you want to pair it with, but how awesome is it with this pink and navy striped sweater? It’s just a happy look, and the sweater comes in several other colors.
This sweater is ONLY $17.50 today and comes in tons of color choices!
Tell me you don’t want this scarf. And again, it would make a great gift!
And just in case you want to look all sorts of holiday ready…
This bright Christmas red paired with the Christmas plaid will have you singing Jingle Bells in no time! You can’t tell me this outfit doesn’t just get you into the spirit. The scarf is incredibly soft and will go with so many different colors.
Another bright and cheery outfit with a simple sweater and scarf.
And I couldn’t talk about these brands without mentioning these pjs and slippers. The slippers are surprisingly comfortable, very warm, and CRAZY affordable. And you can’t get cuter than these pajamas! I prefer thermal leggings and an oversized sweatshirt to button up flannel pjs every day of the week. I’m wearing a small in the pants and sized up to a medium in the sweatshirt tunic.
The entire outfit is 40% OFF, making all pieces an INCREDIBLE DEAL! We’re talking ONLY $12 for these darling thermal bottoms that come in tons of colors and patterns.
Please take all the time you need to ooh and ahh over the pups.
