I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day! I got to see most of my extended family which was lovely and I am still in a food coma. Ho about shopping? Did you make a dent? I did not. Honestly, I was a little underwhelmed with the Black Friday sales this year and yesterday I made stops at both Best Buy and Target and found them both to be relatively deserted, especially for the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I mean. we’re talking front row parking. Crazy. But although I felt pretty meh about Black Friday, I am super excited about the Cyber Monday deals {see my round up here}! Most actually started yesterday, so if you haven’t started browsing yet, hop to it! I have found that even if I am on the fence about a product, Cyber Monday is a great opportunity to take the plunge, with many retailers offering free shipping and free returns. Now on to the outfit…

I’m a bag girl through and through and this gorgeous leopard print satchel from Vera Bradley has been on heavy rotation as its just such a fab fall and winter style with its structured shape. And what are your thoughts on ruffled sweaters? Are you loving them as much as I am? I have found that simply layering a chunky sweater over a lighter weight dress, creates the same effect and I love the oversized feel. These moto jeans and pointed toe booties complete the look. Best of all, you can probably recreate this look with items already in your closet!

Be sure to follow me on Instagram, for more specialty gift guides. I’ve already rounded up my favorite blanket scarves and throws…next up? You guessed it, handbags:)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
