Cheers to Friday, friends!! What’s on your holiday weekend agenda? We’ve got all kinds of family get-togethers planned, so I’ll definitely be pulling out my go-to long cardigan from yesterday’s Cute & Cozy style post. Along with whipping up a million calories in the Kitchen! But for now, all I can manage is a brain dump of what’s been rambling through my head lately.
ONE // I always feel so bad when I feature some darling new piece, only for it to sell out quickly. I try to keep an eye out for y’all, and am happy to report some of the more popular pieces of late are now back-in-stock…starting with these darling pajamas, so perfect for Christmas morning. For those of you who prefer to go sans-pants (no judgements here), you may want to know it also comes in a nightshirt.
My favorite relaxed tee (I love it so much I even created a 5 Ways around it!), now comes in a long-sleeved version with 12 color and pattern options! They’re cute worn alone with a scarf, or layered under jackets and cardigans for an extra hit of color or pattern.
You all went cuckoo for the wedge booties, but sadly my beet color sold out quickly. Well, now they’re back in a bunch of new colors, including beet! I’m always game for a little extra height, but the wedge makes these super comfy.
You know my first love is this circle cardigan, but this darling sweater robe comes in a pretty close second! It comes in several fun ‘Wintery’ patterns, but I loved the hearts best…and it’s back to fully-stocked.
This skirt always gets a lot of attention when I wear it, but I’ve had it for years and it’s long been gone. Until now…it’s back! And for a steal. As is the leopard clutch! #rundontwalk
This cute contrasting cuff sweater is both back in stock (with more colors!), but also on sale! That’s what we call #winning. (Fit Tip: Sweater runs large, both Mama SP and I are wearing XS.)
TWO // I try to do most of my shopping online, especially this time of year, but I’ve found myself at the mall a few times. Which of course led to some Dressing Room Diaries…here are a few recent finds that would make great gifts.
Two darling scarves, both $25! The leopard is a neutral black and white, and the buffalo plaid a darling dark pink.
THREE // Without my awareness, or permission for that matter, our son has become a full-blown young man. First, he shot up taller than me over the Summer, and now he’s as tall as Mr. SP. It feels like almost overnight we went from talking about play dates and video games to drivers permits and Homecoming dates!!! My mama heart is still working through this, and I’m struggling to let him go, but I couldn’t be more proud of the person he is, and the choices he’s making! Aren’t these two just the absolute cutest?!?!?
FIVE // Can you believe Christmas is next week?! We actually have our first family get-together tomorrow, so I’ve been scouring Pinterest for new recipe ideas, but I’ll likely default to my Christmas Crack!
I’m using photo tags from Minted for our packages this year, but these felt ornaments were a big hit a few years ago.
EIGHT // I’ve had two fun, and somewhat surprising, features lately! First up, Women’s World magazine included me in their ‘Christmas Shortcuts’ article. And Better Homes & Gardens produced a special ‘I Did It’ issue, featuring tons of great design tips and ideas to implement in your own home. It’s so fun to see our last house featured!
NINE // I’ve been at this blogging thing for almost seven years (7 years!?!?), but I’m continually amazed by the friendships and opportunities that come from it. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of hosting a Mix & Mingle Event at our brand new J.Crew Mercantile, and I was blown away by the people that came out!! Everyone was so nice and darling, and it was such a joy to meet some of you in person! I wish I’d remembered to take pics with everyone!! #badblogger (Find my fair isle sweater here.)
TEN // As the season progresses, the sales start rolling in. Several of my key pieces are heavily discounted, starting with this great work to weekend blouse.
The leopard infinity scarf was already a steal at $25, and now it’s 33% off. My cut-out booties are even on sale!
This classy color blocked dress, featured in a recent Work It post, is marked down under $100 now!
And finally, obviously I can’t bring home everything I find in Dressing Room Diaries, and this fair isle was hard to leave behind. But now that it’s on sale for $38, I feel like the universe is telling me it’s meant to be mine?! (Fit tip: size down…we’re both wearing XXS)
What’s rambling through your head this busy holiday season? I’d love to hear what’s going on in your world! Happy weekend, lovebugs!
