Skirting around town: Loft Black Friday sale

This year I haven't gone way crazy shopping black friday sales because I usually shop afterChristmas for the really good deals =) When +LOFT has their 50% off everything sale I do get excited!!! I love that most items are under $40 with this sale and Loft has such great quality and versatility. I have quite a few pieces in my closet that are from many seasons ago that I still wear over and over!!! This skirt was something I was waiting for to go on sale!!!! Love it paired with citron!

Thanksgiving outfits for less with Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack

For this post I teamed up with fellow blogger Tiffany Style Blog to do a little shopping for the perfect thanksgiving outfit without spending a lot of turkey ;). We choose to hit +Nordstrom (Tiffany) and Nordstrom Rack. I knew that I wanted to find a flowy dress and vest combo so off to the sales rack I went. I found an adorable floral drop waist number for a steal at $24 now off to locate a vest! Hello beauty! This $39 black vest with shearling liner was PERFECT! Honesty I have been wearing it almost everyday I have to look presentable! The material is perfect for whisking off kid goo. Yay my outfit was complete by adding a neutral bootie. We headed over to Nordstrom to go shopping for Tiffany. She has found a heck of a deal shopping the sales rack with this Topshop jumpsuit! Tiffany knew the perfect way to make the shorts more winter appropriate by adding some black tights and high boots! These ladies are Thanksgiving ready and still have some dough in our pockets!

Best Bra in town

I was looking for a new bra since I am officially done breastfeeding it was time to retire my snap bra and get a new one! I'm not one that likes much help from employees I usually say I'm good thanks but NOT when shopping for a bra. I immediately unloaded what I was looking for on the nice sales associate and she whisked me though the store and into the dressing room for a quick measure and then came back with lots of options! This may not be the bra for super busty ladies but for the smaller  ladies out there this one is perfect! No underwire but surprisinlgy TONS of support and yay a bit of cleavage. They are now on sale for 50% off!!! Not many colors left online but that's not to say your local VS is not stocked!!! Happy Bra shopping!

Holiday photo outfit ideas under $40

It's that time of year again....for your annual holiday family portraits! As a photographer who has taken quite a few family photos over the past several years I know how important it is to COORDINATE but not MATCH. Matching is white shirt and jeans on EVERYBODY which is just a no no to being cool. Coordinating outfits with your family not only keeps you in the 21st century but also really allows your faces to show not just your outfits! I love when families keep it simple and neutral with just two or three patterns. For our family pics this year I choose Gray, brown and navy with just a pop of cranberry for my little guys kicks. As always I kept us under $40 but still fashionable in brands that I love and always have good sales. 


how about 200 photos look ;)
