Fashion + Fitness Friday

Happy Friday friends!  Another week is almost over.  

One thing I hate about when it gets cold (besides the actual cold) is that I have SO much more stuff.  Coats and scarves and boots… I love to layer, but it can be a pain hauling all of that around, especially after yoga.  

But I do love the cool weather work out clothes.  And Lululemon has some really cute new stuff!  The Lululemon store here in Jackson just opened (we had a showroom, but now we have an actual store), and I am hoping to go by there this weekend to check it out.  So, I did a little pre-shopping online, and picked out a few of my faves!

Have a great weekend!

OTK Boots

Happy Thursday all!  I was so confused, and I kept thinking it was Thursday yesterday.  Imagine my disappointment when I realized that today wasn't Friday.  

Today's post is all about my new over the knee boots.  I have been wanting over the knee boots for YEARS.  I have been looking for the perfect pair for I don't know how long.  Most of them are either too expensive or look like maybe they should be on Pretty Woman (before the makeover).  I love the Stuart Weitzman 5050s, but they were way too much.  

So I was really excited when I found these amazing Vince Camuto over the knee boots.  Super cute, a good price, and not too over the top.  They are pretty much perfect.  And also, really comfortable!  They are pull on, and the back is a little stretchy, so they are great for just about anyone.

Turtleneck: J. Crew (similar); Skirt: Gap (similar); Scarf: Lands End; Boots: Vince Camuto
Also, I want to tak a minute to apologize to you all.  Things have been so crazy recently that I haven't had much time to read and comment on blogs.  Ever since I got sick a few weeks ago, I have been constantly about 4 steps behind (who am I kidding… I am always that way).  Now the hubs has pneumonia, so we are dealing with that.  And work has been really busy… anyway, I appreciate all of your comments and support.  And I am trying to get my act together (but I am not getting my hopes up for that…).  Does anyone want to come help me clean my house or do some laundry?

Have a great day!

My Favorite Things

Generally, I don't do any Christmas type things until after Thanksgiving - no decorations, no movies, no music.  I like to give Thanksgiving its time.  It is kind of like the Cinderella of the holidays.  And since Thanksgiving is the hubs favorite holiday, there is no passing it up.

However, Thanksgiving is really late this year.  And I know a lot of people have already started their shopping (not me… truth - I really haven't given it any thought).  So I thought it might be a good idea to go ahead and start sprinkling some gifting ideas into the mix of posts.  No one wants to be at the mall on Dec. 23 with your dad and watch him wander aimlessly around until you (the brilliant 7 year old child) picks out the perfect gift for your mother… 

Anyway, when I was younger, my mom and I LOVED to watch the Oprah's Favorite Things episode.  We would rush home after school, get in our pjs and curl up on the couch and watch.  Some years my mom would write everything down so we could keep up (this was before everything was on the internet, remember?).  It was always so much fun.  

So today, I thought I would present some of MY favorite things - gifts I think are good to give and get. You know there are just some gifts that are always great - my personal go to gifts are books.  There is a book for everyone.  

So here are are a few of my favorite gifts:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 

Besides books, I love to give pjs.  Who doesn't like a new pair of warm, snuggly pjs?  And of course anything monogrammed is always a good gift.  

Today is the last day to enter the $400 Nordstrom giveaway!  You could buy yourself (or me) some nice presents if you win!

Have a great Wednesday!

Tuesday Shoesday Week #118

Happy Tuesday friends!  I hope you all have had a good start to the week.

Yesterday was all about Thanksgiving looks.  Today, I have 5 pairs of fantastic J. Crew shoes that would be amazing for Thanksgiving (or any holiday… or any day…)  I always love J. Crew shoes, but they seem exceptionally good right now.  

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 

And while we are on the subject of J. Crew, can we take a second to talk about Jenna Lyon's outfit to Solange Knowles wedding?  

Seriously stunning, right?  I will take that skirt… and the jacket… and the clutch….

Have a great day!

Thanksgiving Looks

Happy Monday all!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I had said my plan was to be really productive but also get a lot of rest.  I was fairly productive (I never can get enough done), and I got some rest (never enough).  So I suppose it was a semi- successful weekend. 

It is hard to believe but Thanksgiving is a little over a week away.  How did that happen??  I have absolutely no idea.  But according to the calendar, it is next Thursday.  

To be honest, I generally spend Thanksgiving in my pjs, which I really enjoy.  It has pretty much always been like that.  But I realize that most people do get dressed for Thanksgiving.  So I thought it would be a good time to post some ideas for what to wear on Turkey Day.

Haver a great day!  And don't forget you still have time to enter the Nordstrom giveaway

Kate Spade Holiday

Happy Friday all!  I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for the weekend.  I have grand plans to be really productive and also get a lot of rest.  How am I going to do that?  I have no idea.  But that is the plan.

So can we take a minute to discuss the new Kate Spade holiday campaign and collection?  By now you might have picked up that I am a little bit of a Kate Spade fanatic.  I can't help myself.  Everything is amazing.  Just like their new collection and campaign.  How amazing does Anna Kendrick look?  And have you seen the campaign video?  Love it.

Here are some of my favorites from the collection:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Have a great weekend!

Southern Belle

Happy Thursday all.  We are getting close to another weekend!  

I am super excited to show you my new smoking slippers from C. Wonder.  Aren't they cute??  I first saw them on Instagram a few months ago during a preview of their fall collection.  And I knew I had to have them.  Then they sold out really quick.  But luckily, C. Wonder tracked them down in Birmingham, and then they were mine. You just can't keep me away from shoes that are meant to be mine. 

Blouse: Target (similar); Cardigan: Loft (similar); Skirt: Target (similar); Shoes: C. Wonder (also City Girl)

2 Quick thing:
1. Have you entered the $400 Nordstrom giveaway?
