If you are stumped on what to wear to Thanksgiving this year, I’ve got you covered! It might have just started getting “colder” in Houston but I’ve been practicing for months now 🙂 While you may not have all of these items already in your closet, I hope these outfit ideas provide a source of inspiration to create something that you might not normally have thought to put together! Simply click on any of the product images below each picture to shop the items that I am wearing. I also suggest referencing this page come Black Friday as most of my outfits are expected to be on major sale if they aren’t already!
Don’t forget that I am already sharing Black Friday deals that are starting early! You can find all of them listed on my sale page! If any of you do recreate one of these outfits, don’t forget to send me a picture! I always love getting pictures from all of you showing me how you styled your outfit 🙂 Happy turkey day week y’all!
Going to keep this short and sweet because it’s Friday and we all just want to get straight to the point, am I right?! I’ve been searching the internet all week to find the best sales on dresses that could be worn to a holiday event or wedding whether it’s dressy or casual! See below for my top picks under $100 or under $50! My dress (just $72) from Saltflat is an identical dupe of the Self Portrait dress for over $500! While a girl can dream, she can also be saving her pretty pennies on something more affordable (like MORE Chick-fil-a!), especially when the dupe is that good.
Several of my favorite dress retailers are already having great pre-Black Friday sales. I’m talking almost giving stuff away! ASOS and H&M are two of my go-to affordable dress shops and both are having up to 60% off right now. If you want a “splurge-worthy” dress but on major sale right now, Nordstrom or Express is where it’s at. Nordstrom is having up to 40% off and Express is having 40% off + $25 off of $100!
And I know no outfit is complete without the perfect accessories so don’t worry I got you girl 🙂 If you already have a dress and want to make it new, a new pair of shoes, bag and jewelry is the way to go! Linking several affordable options for you ladies!

Not going to lie, I plan on being Waldo for the third year in a row now. I’ve somehow had all of the outfit pieces in my closet all of these years. Don’t ask me how! If you are always a little last minute like me, I bet you have one if not all four of these costumes in your closet! And if you don’t I bet your sister or friend does 😉
If you are here because you are “late to the ballgame”, I rounded up a few Halloween tops above that you can order now and have on hand for next year so even if you are caught without a costume, at least you’re festive! Happy Halloween to you and stay safe friends!
For those of us riding the single train this Valentine’s Day, I think I speak for all of us when I say that it’s not a holiday we care to give too much recognition to. Being single on the day of love is like a huge freaking reminder that everyone else (or so it seems) is happily in a relationship, engaged, or married. As if your grandmother dropping not so subtle hints about your relationship status wasn’t enough, stomaching all of the mushy-gushy romance on this day can be rough to say the least.
This will be my first Valentine’s Day alone in close to 8 years and I’m not sure how I feel about it. On one hand I am pretty excited that I am not having to buy a Valentine’s Day gift for anyone besides myself. And you can bet that I WILL be buying myself something because I have somehow convinced myself that that is how the world should work. My logic goes a little something like this: if I were in a relationship, I would be spending a hefty amount of mula on the one I love. Since I would have spent the money anyway, I might as well spend it on someone that I love just as much… MUAH! So thank you nonexistent boyfriend for that!
So to all of my single ladies out there, instead of spending February 14th feeling sorry for ourselves and our lack of romance, I say we celebrate this special time in our lives! On a day that makes us question “Why am I still single?”, “What’s wrong with me?”, “Will I die alone?”, I’m here to tell you that you are exactly where you are supposed to be and you should celebrate the fact that some day you will look back on this time alone and wish you would have lived it up a little more. So here are a few ways stay happy this love day and to be your own damn Valentine.
Stay off of social media– As if most days besides Valentine’s Day weren’t big enough reminders of just how single you are, social media will surely do the trick. You already know that everyone and their mother will be showing off on social media of just how great their significant other is. Do yourself a huge favor and just stay off of your phone for the day. Nobody wants to see the thousands of Instagrams showing off expensive gifts, romantic gestures, and cliche acts of love (as cute as they might be).
Don’t “play hermit”– It might be easy to burry yourself into a hole of self pity complete with Netflix while you drown your tears into a tub of ice cream but don’t succumb to this ladies! The world is not completely out to get you on this day so embrace being single and know you are not alone!
Splurge on something for yourself– Take the money you would have spent on a Valentine”s Day present for your ex and buy yourself something really nice. Maybe it’s a couple boxes of chocolate (you do you girl) or maybe it’s a new bag. Just do it!
Buy yourself flowers– I’m a big proponent that you should always buy yourself flowers. They don’t have to be a romantic gesture from a guy. For something that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg but brings instant happiness, seems like a no brainer to buy them for yourself!
Pamper yourself– Ain’t nobody going to love you better than you can love yourself! Just like you would have spoiled that special Valentine, you deserve a little loving too! My personal favorite pampering sesh goes a little something like this: a bubble bath, face mask, candles and BIG glass of wine. Don’t mind if I do!
Cheers to all of the single ladies out there this Valentine’s Day and may you be your own best damn Valentine out there.
With Valentine’s Day less than a week away, today I am sharing the perfect gift for all of you ladies out there. Feel free to pass this along to your men, afterall the less subtle the hints, the more apt you are to getting what you want 😉 And what could be more romantic than that?!
Is there anything that you are secretly hoping that you are going to get or something you are excited to give? I would love to hear!
