Nude Sneakers + Neutrals






Top: Old - Similar here --> Nordstrom Rack, Leggings: Banana Republic - Similar here --> Aerie (Only $10!), Vest: J. Crew,
Shoes: Adidas, Scarf: H&M (Very similar!)

I've been on the lookout for some nude sneakers forever now, and the other day while Kalep was looking for some shoes, these caught my eye. They're so light and the perfect shade of nude. Scarves + quilted vests are other closet staples for the fall/winter. I love to throw them on with a pair of leggings and I'm out the door when I'm not really in the mood to dress up especially with some cute sneaks.  We had a long day on the road yesterday from going to Del Rio which is about 3 hours away to finalize the sale of our trailer at the lake and back then to watch my brother play basketball in a little town nearby, so I was definitely dressed for comfort.

P.S. Don't mind the grandma bun - haven't quite yet nailed down the top knot look!

Cozy Cardigans











Cardigan: Grace & Lace, Jeans: Jessica Simpson, Boots: Vince Camuto - 25% off!, Necklace: Baublebar

I'm usually all about solids, but patterned clothing can add a little fun to your outfit like this cardigan. Btw, it's also SUPER soft & cozy. Yesterday was especially chilly, so it was just enough to keep me warm. I've been stocking up on cardigans lately - knit, patterned, plush. Kalep likes to keep the house cold, so when I'm at home, I usually throw on a cardigan especially during the early morning or late at night when I'm sitting at my desk working on my blog or invites. 

In other news, I took advantage of the Cyber Monday sales, and finally decided to order some clip in extensions again, and I'm so excited for them to get here! I love shorter hair for a bit, but after awhile, I get bored with it. Bellami Hair is my go to for clip-ins. Great quality and so many to choose from! 

Keepin' it short for today because 1) I'm up way too early right now & 2) We're off to Del Rio for a quick there and back day trip!

Grace & Lace & Faux Fur Scarves











Sweater: Express, Jeans: Express, Scarf: Grace and Lace, Bag: Nordstrom
A scarf is a great way to accessorize a sweater or top in the fall & winter - especially one with faux fur. If you know me at all, you know that I absolutely adore anything with faux fur. I had someone on Thanksgiving tell me that anytime they buy something with fur on it for their house, they automatically think of me, so you know this was a must have. You can find this one at Grace & Lace (and it's currently on sale!) I'm so excited to have been chosen as their fashion blogger for this season, so you will be seeing more outfit inspiration with some of my favorite items from Grace and Lace on the blog throughout the season! They are based out of Austin, Tx, and have even been featured on Shark Tank. You know the super popular leg warmers - that was all them! I especially love that Grace and Lace has a heart for Jesus and also gives back through Angel House. You can read all about it here!

After the feast and overindulging that was the Thanksgiving weekend, all I really want to do is wear big comfy sweaters. Luckily, Express has had great deals between Black Friday & Cyber Monday so I picked up a few. The sales have extended to today with 40% off everything, so check it out! 

In other news: Today is Kalep's birthday, and I'm all about celebrating birthdays especially his, so I'm off to make his day special!

Cute But Crazy...but Cute













Add caption

Sweater: Forever 21 (Under $20!), Leggings: Old - love these, Plaid Shirt: H&M - Similar here and here - and just had to share this plaid PJ shirt, Shoes: Adidas Superstars

Keepin' this post short and sweet because what's new...I'm wearing my superstars again! ;) I'm a sucker for tshirts and sweaters with a little embroidery detail and this one was calling my name especially the price point. I would size up because it's a little cropped and I wanted it to fit a little longer so I got a large!

I'm also a sucker for small towns with character and Alpine, TX is definitely that. My brother played basketball there the other day, so we went around town taking a few blog pictures and I wish we had more time because their downtown area was the cutest.

That's it for today - I've also got some cookies calling my name to go finish by lunchtime. Kalep's finally off nights, and he actually wanted to go shop for some new clothes for Thanksgiving. Taking advantage of that because he NEVER wants to shop!

Sales + Sweaters









Sweater: Express, Jeans: Express, Booties: Express

I've been trying to stock up on sweaters, and Express has a great selection. It gets even better - they're all 50% off including this one. In fact, my whole outfit is 50% off, so go ahead and get a head start on your Black Friday shopping! I love big cozy sweaters especially for Thanksgiving when I do not want to be wearing anything that hugs the body too tight! ;) I've linked some other favorites from Express in the widget below. 

In other news, one of my best friends and my college roommate came down for Thanksgiving and I'm super excited because we get to be roomies again for a few days while she's here. Tyce also couldn't get enough of our house guest! He wore himself out from all the excitement. 

I hope you are all having the best Thanksgiving week!

Stylish Comfort








Top: Forever 21 - Almost exact same one here and a hoodie version here! Both are less than $25!, Leggings: Old - Craving these!, Shoes: Adidas Superstars
Some days I just really can't even put on a pair of jeans - much less think about walking around all day in some heeled booties. That's when sweatshirts and leggings come in to save the day! Comfort can still be cute though. I found this sweatshirt at Forever 21 in Austin, and for some reason, I can't find any of those purchases I made there online, but I linked a very similar one above. That's my go to place for affordable comfortable pieces that are still stylish! My superstars are one of my favorite pairs of shoes in my closet. You can obviously tell since I wear them out. They are definitely on the list of stylish comfort shoes.  I think it's time I buy the gold ones! ;) 

Our little hometown football boys get to play at Jones Stadium tonight, so I'm tagging along with my dad and brothers to go watch some friday night football! It's also the perfect excuse to go see my best friend and spend some time in Lubbock. 

P.S. I'm nearing the end of One Tree Hill, and a part of me kind of feels heart broken about it. The other day, I started telling my mom a story and then realized it actually didn't happen in real life - it happened on One Tree Hill (lol). I'm a little obsessed! 

Make the most of your weekend!
