Tweed Peplum Top

Tweed peplum top c/o Sugarlips // Vintage skirt // Forever 21 polka dot tights // Kimchi Blue cap toe wedges

I have been searching for the perfect peplum top since the trend first came out, but I was never able to find an affordable one. I was beyond thrilled when I finally found this one at Sugarlips! I have a major obsession with tweed, and I love how this top has frayed edge details. I got these wedges from Urban Outfitters while they were having an extra 50% off sale shoes promotion. They were on sale for $20 in store, so I was super excited to snag these for only $10! And just an interesting point to note: these shoes hardly make a sound! I don't really mind the "click, clack" of heels, but it can make it really hard to be sneaky sometimes. Looks like I finally have a pair of stealthy heels! UO 50% off sales are amazing, so I was really disappointed that I didn't have a chance to go to their Black Friday sale. I unfortunately caught a cold over the holiday wasn't able to go shopping. I even had a nightmare about all the amazing Black Friday sales that I was missing! I'll just have to make this year up by shopping twice as much on Black Friday next year!

What to Wear on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Outfits

Thanksgiving Outfits 2

With Thanksgiving coming up, I thought I'd make some holiday outfits! :) I was originally only planning on making three outfits but ended up making six because there were so many great pieces on Polyvore! Thanksgiving is a holiday for quality time with family and lots of eating, so the two most important components of a Thanksgiving outfit are: 1. looking polished and presentable for the family and 2. wearing clothes that can hide the effects of the delicious Thanksgiving feast! Read more for details on each outfit:

Dalmatian and Polka Dots

Lulu's moto jacket // Forever 21 dalmation print long sleeve shirt // Gap Kids polka dot jeans (other prints available here) // Steve Madden 'Grettta' heels

Printed pants again? It actually wasn't intentional, but just goes to show how crazy I am over printed jeans! I unfortunately can't afford any of the gorgeous printed jeans available in women's sizes, so I was super excited to find some affordable pairs at Gap Kids! I also got my leopard print jeans from there, and hopefully I'll get a post up with those eventually. This is probably my first plain long sleeve shirt (well as plain as I can get), and now I'm definitely on the lookout for more because they're so comfy! Also, I absolutely love dalmatian print right now. It's possibly my favorite print of the moment because it goes with everything! My biggest regret of the summer was probably not buying these super cute dalmatian calf hair loafers. I definitely need more dalmatian in my life!

Ikat Jeans

Lauren Conrad jacket // Forever 21 sheer shirt // American Eagle ikat print jeans // Collar necklace c/o Oasap // Wild Rose clear cap toe shoes via Ebay available here and here

I have been obsessed with printed jeans recently! I currently have floral, tartan, polka dot, leopard, and ikat. And it's still not enough! American eagle has a great variety on sale right now. Plus there's extra 40% off clearance! I would recommend going in store because I found these for $20 in store while it's still $40 online. With the extra 40% off, these were only $12! I also have these jeans from American Eagle. It might not be very clear, but the shoes have clear paneling on the sides. I love clear shoes, ankle straps and cap toes, so I was super excited to find these shoes. They also look just like the Christian Louboutin "unbout" shoes. I can't afford anything even remotely designer, so I don't have a problem with look-alikes. Speaking of look-alikes, this necklace is similar to the oh so well known Dannijo collar necklace. I love Dannijo jewelry and can't wait for the day when I can afford the real thing!
