Stylish Black Friday Sales 2016

Well, I am still sufficiently stuffed from all that turkey, anyone else with me? Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone it's time to really get into the holiday season and the best way to kick it off is with Black Friday. Do y'all remember that scene from Confessions of a Shopaholic where Isla Fisher's character Rebecca is standing outside a building with like 100 other people waiting for a sample sale to begin and once the doors open they literally trample each other to get in first? That's how I imagine Black Friday and is the main reason I won't be braving the crowds today. Luckily, so many amazing stores offer incredible deals online, so nobody has to wait until Cyber Monday. While I applaud those of you that brave the crazies, I won't be moving from my couch today and I am sharing the best deals with you so you can do the same! I will be adding more sales to this post as they become available so make sure to keep checking back! Happy Shopping and hope everyone has a stylish weekend!

November Stylish Girl of the Month: Meghan Markle

Who can believe that Thanksgiving is already 3 days away, I feel like I have done nothing to prepare. You probably know I unexpectedly adopted a dog over the weekend and well if my life wasn't already crazy enough, it just got crazier. I think the part of that I had no idea I would wake up Saturday and go to bed owning a dog is what throws me off the most, but more on that later. Today it is time to pick my second to last Stylish Girl of the Month for 2016. Who the hell can believe its literally almost December! I know I say this everything month but every month I mean it. While its been quite the month of politics there have been some girls that have caught my eye in the style department. While I secretly hate this months pick for taking away my chance at ever being a princess, Meghan Markle is of course my November Stylish Girl of the Month. 

Red is definitely Meghan's color, especially this Jill Stuart dress.
LOVE this Tracy Reese floral dress!
Miu Miu looks good on Meghan.
Love this sparkly mini, its so flattering!
LBD for the win, love this suede little black dress

Not only am I obsessed with Suits, is a lifestyle blogger herself, and her fashion is out of this world and she is the most perfect pick for this month. Basically, the clothes she wears speaks for themselves an prove she is definitely princess material. Prince Harry picked a good one not only for how beautiful she is but for her damn right amazing fashion! Hope everyone is having a great week so far and isn't running a million miles a minute like mine is hehe.

Stylish Wedding Invitations: Josh + Charlotte

You might remember a few months back I got to be in my roommates (who also happen to be my best friends) wedding in Maryland. What many of you don't know is that I also was the person behind all the paper goods for the wedding. I designed the save the dates, the invitations, the table numbers, all the signage, crab mallets and a few other miscellaneous items. As my gift to the bride and groom I got to play a special part in their day and it was so fun getting to explore a new realm of design. Most of you know that I fell into graphic designing per my former job and while I've done a ton of flyers, postcards and door hangers invitations were a new thing to me. Add in that the client is my best friend and things could have gotten tricky but luckily they went smoothly! I designed the custom design and used Invitations by Dawn to do the printing and used Uprinting for the remainder of the items. While the wedding was back in September, it was such a pleasure getting to see the photos and remembering the amazing day that the wedding was. Charlotte and Josh's wedding went off without a hitch even with the chance of a hurricane.
It was such a special day that I am so grateful to have been a part of. I am sharing with you all the wonderful vendors that helped make the day perfect. I can't wait to plan my very own wedding someday and have this magical moment of my own!

To me, sparkles are necessary all year round but around the holidays they are even more of a staple. With the holidays just around the corner, sparkles seem the perfect way to go for all the upcoming parties we all have on the books and while some of us like wearing sparkles, some like subtle hints of it. A great way to add festive holiday flair to your holiday outfits is with great accessories. As you can see above, I love a great sparkle well anything. I decided to round up some of the best and most stylish holiday accessories sure to make you the star of the party! Hope everyone is having a great week so far! We are halfway there!

Stylish Wardrobe Must Have: The Perfect Slip Dress

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10

I've mentioned before that a fall wardrobe must have is definitely a slip dress. Apparently,  I wasn't even listening to my own advice because I just ordered one. I guess I've been a little preoccupied lately. While I snagged this one, I have decided this is a great layering piece for the winter and then a great dress for the warmer months. I am planning to wear mine for Thanksgiving dinner because well it isn't tight fitting and perfect for me to eat as much as I want. I know some of you are probably like why the heck would I want to wear basically lingerie out, but luckily there are tons of options that are structured and perfect for wearing outside the bedroom! I decided to scour the web and find more amazing slip dress options that won't break the bank and are perfect for the holidays ahead! Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Who can believe that Thanksgiving is two weeks from today!? I swear before we know it, its going to be 2017!

Nordstrom is having its fall clearance and since I shockingly didn't buy any clothes in NYC, I am thinking I deserve some rewards for that! There are still a few items that I have yet to add to my wardrobe including over the knee boots. When I was in NYC I saw SO many amazing pairs on girls around the city I got major FOMO! I decided to round up my favorite items from the sale that is now through November 13th! What items are you dying over? Hope everyone is having a great day, we are almost there!

A Stylish New York Weekend Recap

WOW! What a whirlwind the last 6 days have been! I got back from NYC late Monday night and then yesterday was Election Day and I have been going non stop ever since! I am so excited to share my trip with everyone. If you follow along on Instagram with me, you probably have seen a few snapshots of my amazing trip. We packed so much into a short 4 days and I wouldn't have wan/ted it any other way! From the 9/11 Memorial to finally being on TV at Live With Kelly and being literally 10 feet from Sarah Jessica Parker, I knocked a lot of things off my bucket list in just one weekend! I never thought I could love a city that is so big, but NYC has quickly become one of my favorite cities, especially after not visiting for so long. So instead of me boring you with me chatting, let me show you some snapshots from my trip! Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

It's been a minute since we've had an award show, but rest assured last night that drought came to an end with the 50th annual CMA Awards. It might be because I grew up in the south, but damn I love watching all the best country music artists come together and since I am a HUGE Carrie Underwood fan, a show hosted by her is a no brainer. Can we just talk about how she managed to change 11 times during the show!? Y'all already know I am guilty of embracing my southern roots more often than not and last nights show reminded me of how much I just love country music. The show celebrated its 50th year last night and it did not disappoint, from the red carpet arrivals to the show itself, it was a stylish night. I rounded up my favorite looks from the red carpet and am thinking on my way to NYC, maybe I'll make a pit stop in Nashville!? Who was your favorite dressed star of the night! Hope everyone is having a great week, we are almost there!
