Ike agreed to be in my outfit of the day pic. I can’t say he was thrilled about it. He’s getting so big and heavy! It’s hard to hold him for more than a minute or two.
My vest is on sale for $14.99 no code needed. I purchased the lilac color, but it’s also available in eight other colors. My second favorite would be white. With a deal this good I’m tempted to order the white tonight.
I hope your Thanksgiving week is off to a wonderful start. I’ll be sharing deals all week so please be sure to check back often (both on the blog and on my Instagram page @sometime_saturday). I will ONLY be sharing items that I myself have purchased. Thank you for following along. It means more than you know!
I purchased this coat last year from Free People. It’s an ivory shade that feels like you’re wrapped up in your favorite blanket. It looks like a lot of retailers have a similar coat available this year. Because mine is from Free People, I wanted to share their brand exclusively for this particular post.
Here are my top picks:
This red top has been in my closet for years. I found it at the Anthropologie in Houston back when I lived in old Htown. They brought it back, and this time it's available in red, blue, and yellow.
Club Monaco just surprised us with an early Thanksgiving sale and is offering an extra 30% off of sale prices. Because Club Monaco prices are always steep, I wait for sales this like to stock up on wardrobe staples. A classic camel coat, a good pair of corduroy pants, and a sweater in gray white or black.
I purchased these pants last year in black and wear them at least once a week in the winter. They're also available in navy and crimson (shown below).
I've had my eye on these houndstooth corduroys waiting for them to go on sale. These can easily be paired with the boots and booties that you already have.
These khakis are so chic. They just kicked my current khakis to the curb.
This maroon sweater is the same one I ordered from Neiman Marcus when they were having a 30% off promotion. Get it here for an even better deal!
This week’s What I Want Wednesday post is dedicated to one particular brand. The brand that I admired from afar and eventually up close in the recent years, Tory Burch.
When I was in college a lot of girls had Tory Burch flats or boots. I didn’t, but that was ok because I knew that one day I would have enough to buy a pair of Tory Burch shoes on my own. Fast forward a little, past college and grad school. There I am working as an auditor for one of the Big 4 and I needed a pair of shoes for work. I took the plunge and bought a pair of camel suede flats at the Tory Burch store in the Houston Galleria.
I wore those shoes for years and years. I was so proud of them, mostly because I got them all on my own. I might not have had them earlier in life, but I definitely don’t take nice things for granted. It’s a good lesson. One I’m happy to have learned.
This weekend we had family in town for a wedding, and I got to see some family members of mine who I adore. Kim and Vince invited me to brunch on Sunday. Without even looking at my calendar I said of course! I later realized that I already had a Kappa brunch and event scheduled for that same day. My schedule is either crazy or completely clear. I was able to make it to both brunches. I'm so glad I didn't have to miss out on anything. Here's what I wore:
I finally found the right kind of lights for my tree. I never knew there were so many options! Warm white, cool white, or clear. I like to look at the lights in person. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what they’ll look like when you only have a tiny picture to go off of.
I looked for lights online at Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Home Depot. Home Depot’s website was the easiet to use, so I ended up going with them. The lights I bought are only $2 a box! Most of the lights were priced around 7 or $8 a box. I didn’t want warm lights because they look a little too yellow, and I didn’t want cool white lights because they look a little too blue. I bought clear white and was wondering what in the world they would look like. I picked up my order yesterday, got home, opened a box and plugged a string of lights in. They’re so pretty!! I’ll link them below in case you’re looking for a great deal on lights.
Home Depot will certainly ship your lights, but they also have a buy online and pick up in store option.
Every year since grad school Christmas time comes around and I bring out my mini tree. It's the cutest little thing, it really is. I got it at Target and it has been in more apartments than you could count. We had a good run.
I decided I wanted to step up my game this year and get a full size tree. Bring a little extra holiday cheer into the house. The full size tree will be here next week sometime. I can't wait to see it in person and get it all set up. I'm currently deciding on lights and ornaments. I also need a tree skirt that isn't so tiny.
Originally, I was only going to share the finished product with you. Once the tree was up, and everything looked perfect. I decided that's not ideal, and that's not real. The truth is this tall tree thing is a process. I want to share that process with you. Just in case you too are in the market for a new tree, or just want some holiday inspiration for your home. So here it is. My new tree : )
Top : use code FRIENDS40 to get an extra 40% off your Ann Taylor purchase. With the promotional code, this top is on sale for $27. They also have it in black.
Pants : These corduroy Levi's' have been a top a hot item at Anthropologie this season. They run a little small. I would suggest sizing up one size. Last time I checked, several sizes had been restocked.
Lipstick 1 & Lipstick 2 : To get this deep pink color lip, I mixed my Nars Heatwave with my Mac Speed Dial. I only have 5 different lipstick colors. I often mix the colors in order to create new shades instead of buying a new tube.
Shoes : A white pair of sneakers are something that can be worn year round. I usually take a pair with me on every trip/weekend getaway just to have as a comfy option. These Tory Burch shoes are on sale right now at Shopbop.
