Guys, everything in this post is on sale. #ILoveCyberMonday. I wanted to do a quick review of an item that is definitely new to me: the flannel shirt. My best girlfriend was in town and her style couldn’t be more different than mine, but she pulled out this blue flannel shirt from Gap and I was intrigued. I kind of love the semi-grunge look and adore how these flannel shirts (from the men’s department) look unbuttoned with a basic outfit. I chose to pair this gorgeous cobalt one with all black jeans, tank and boots and dress it up with lipstick and a gorgeous necklace given to me as a gift.

The look of this shirt is definitely more casual but I think it will be so much fun paired with colored skinnies through the winter.

If you follow me on Instagram you saw this necklace. My girlfriend gave this to me for Hanukkah. It is a repurposed vintage Chanel button, set in a cold plate and put on a gold chain. She picked it up in an antique shop in Paris and I couldn’t love it more. Chanel jewelry for less!

Thanksgiving Recap 2013

IMG_7430-2

This Thanksgiving was absolutely wonderful. We decided to change it up this year and make it a friendsgiving, as my closest girlfriends from college were able to fly into San Francisco from DC for the holiday. My girlfriends and I spent the weekend shopping, eating, and touring around the city, with plenty of time for late-night chats snuggled on my bed. I wore these amazing jeans from James Jeans, my Tieks basically all weekend, and a loose-fitting button-down for the actual feast.

We had such a magical Thanksgiving (see details here!) but I must say, i’m so thrilled that it is December. It is one of my favorite months and I can’t wait to continue decorating my apartment, cooking warm meals and enjoying time with family and friends.

Black Jeans + Black Friday Shopping

J.Crew chambray shirt (favorite, obsessed), James Jeans black denim (here in similar black finish), Superga sneakers, Madewell belt

Just a casual day-off look with some of my favorite pieces. Classic chambray, the best black denim and classic white sneaks. Pulled together with an amazing belt and similarly-colored sunglasses.

This Black Friday there are a few sales i’m eyeing, looking to add some unique, fun pieces to my wardrobe and also shop for upcoming holiday parties. Here are a few things i’ve picked up (the black/white striped dress & black belt) or am stalking, and the sales i’m loving:

Shopbop – up to 25% off (lot’s of larger sizes available)

Saks Fifth Avenue – up to 60% off

Gap – 50% off everything (love for basics)

Banana Republic – 40% off everything (amazing for layering tanks, reviewed here)

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

J.Crew Fluted Skirt, Re-Styled and Steve Madden Intyce Boots

Piperlime sweater, J.Crew skirt (reviewed here), SPANX tights, Steve Madden boots on sale! (a great wide-calf option), Target clutch, Sole Society + Kendra Scott (similar) necklaces

The last time I styled this skirt I was bare legged and definitely a little fancier. True to my comfort-loving self, i’m obsessed with this skirt even more when paired with a slouchy oversized sweater (tucked in for some definition) and slouchy boots.

Doin’ a little jig for ya, naturally. Thanks to Kate for capturing this fine moment

Mixing patterns and textures, always. I’m working on an outfit that mixes 4 patterns. An idea after a challenge from a reader. Challenge accepted.

I also wanted to talk about these boots briefly. After complaining about not finding a high-heeled wide leg option, I did want to mention how much I love these slouchy Steve Madden stunners. I’ve had them for years and I love the oversized fit around my ankle. It adds a bit of texture and proportion to any outfit. Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a lower heel/wedge option!

Can you believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow? I’ll be cozying up with some of my closest girlfriends for our first Friendsgiving/Thanksgiving and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so thankful to have each and every one of you. Truly, thank you for visiting.
