Cheers to Friday! I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you it’s the last weekend before Christmas! I did a fair amount of gift shopping online during Black Friday and Cyber Monday (see my sale picks here & here), but that just gave me a false sense of accomplishment, and I haven’t done any since!
So I’ll be scrambling in the coming days to finish up! Fortunately, many retailers are offering expedited shipping, so everything can arrive by next Thursday. (See the end of this post for my list of top sales!)
But, today it’s time for the next installment of Dressing Room Diaries. Y’all seem to like the occasional dressing room snaps I post on InstaGram and Facebook using #HSPDressingRoomDiaries, so I thought it’d be fun to expand it for the blog.
The shots aren’t good, the lighting is bad, and many of the items aren’t a good fit for me…but it’s real life, real girl, real clothes…and hopefully helpful for you to see them this way, instead of perfectly styled on a model. And you’d think I’d bother to put on make-up and comb my hair before snapping these, but you thought wrong. Real life, right? 😉
Sidenote: Everything fits true-to-size unless I indicate otherwise.
This is actually what I wore to the mall one day, but made a beeline for this cross body bag and had to snap an immediate pic. #totallynormalbehaviorright Of course I’m a sucker for a tassel, and I love the fold over style. It comes in gorgeous colors and priced unbelievably low considering the quality. And how cute is the leopard one??
Fit Tip: I happened to be wearing a white tank that day, but I’d layer a dark one under this sweater. Simply because the weave is larger.
Knit Pocket Tunic (on sale!) | Dark Rinse Jeans | Tassel-Tie Booties | Earrings
This sweater dress is a total winner…soft, slightly fitted through the torso, and great length. It’d be so cute with a vest and pendant necklace (like I styled this one). I’d pair it with tights and booties when the weather is chillier.
Distressed Jeans | Tassel-Tie Booties | Necklace (on sale!) | Hoop Earrings
Flannel Pajama Set
Side Slit Sweater Tunic | Jeans | Boots (on sale!) | Watch | Hoop Earrings
Sorry no Mr. SP photobombs this round…no way he was going near the mall during holiday season! And you may have noticed my frequent wearing of the tassel-tie chukka booties…obsessed is all I can say. They are truly the most comfortable shoes I own. Even more than tennis shoes! I’d scoop them up in taupe if I didn’t already have taupe booties. My mom actually has the orange ones and loves them!
So what are your favorites from this installment of Dressing Room Diaries? See anything you want to try for yourself? Are you just about done with your Christmas shopping, or just getting started? Maybe some of these things will be a good match for someone on your list!
We’re hosting our first big party in the new house tonight, and I haven’t decided if I’m wearing this dress, or this one. But as long as we don’t run out of wine, no one will care, right? Happy weekend, lovebugs!
