Saturday shopping: gifts for the homebodies

Do you have a homebody on your list? Or just someone who deserves a day of relaxing? These items will fit the bill.

gifts for homebodies

If your homebody is the casual type, they can still be casual and stylish in these gingham check pajamas. (40% off at Loft with code BF40). These fun slippers and pom pom blanket will keep the mood light. Don't forget the coffee and a fun mug.

If your homebody is a little more posh, then give them a comfy robe and these fluffy Ugg slippers. A faux fur throw and a Kate Spade gold striped mug will make them feel all the more luxurious.


Happy Shopping!

Before we launch it outfits and shopping, I want to say thank you to my readers and followers. Thank you for your kind comments and support. I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving day and got to have some quite down time with family to reflect on what's really important.
Isn't this lace top just gorgeous? Like so pretty you're afraid to wear it for fear you will mess it up? I got this during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. It was too hot then to wear it, but I can finally put it in rotation now. While it's pretty for every day, I think the lace detail will make it a pretty holiday top too.
If you are not braving the crowds today and are sitting at home behind the computer like me, then make sure to peruse some of the Black Friday sales. I'm kind of excited that so many things went on sale early this week. No need to be in a mad rush this morning. I've already taken advantage of some things online and in store on Wednesday, so I've got a good chunk of the Christmas list knocked out. 
Here are a few of the deals going on and my picks from each:

Ann Taylor has 50% off everything with code CELEBRATE These pearlized brooch earrings would be great for holiday wear and everyday. This ring set would be fun to have too.

JCrew is offering 30-40% offPolka dot pajamas would be perfect for relaxing after the holidays are over.

Everything is on sale at Old Navy, up to 60% off. I've been eyeing the plaid mock neck sweater.

Baublebar if offering 30% off with code THX.  Free shipping and returns is a plus too! This necklace is gorgeous.

Happy Shopping!

Riding boots and a Thanksgiving outfit

We finally had a day cool enough to wear riding boots. My hubby bought me a cognac pair last Christmas. I have a black pair, and I have tall black and brown boots with heels, but I needed a cognac pair to complete the collection. I guess I could say I need an over the knee pair to complete the collection, but we will leave that alone for now. Unfortunately, the pair I picked out last year didn't fit. I returned them and I didn't replace them until the Nordstrom sale this year. Do you know how long ago that was? I have had to wait all this time to wear these boots, lol.
This outfit was one of the GYPO fall style challenge outfits. Of course that was in late September and October and I didn't get to wear this outfit then. It is nice to have some ideas on hand for later. I wore this for my in-laws Thanksgiving a couple of weekends ago. It's a great outfit for Thanksgiving if you go casual- stretchy leggings or jeans and an untucked shirt and long cardigan to hide that food baby.

I bought this vest a few years back before they were even popular and have struggled to style it and wear it. As long vests and sleeveless blazers  become more popular, it has become a little easier for me to style. Yet, I have several vests of all kinds in my closet and they are not my "go to" pieces. I do like them but just can't remember them or figure them out for me. I like how this outfit turned out. I think it's the color combination I like. I'm a burgundy/oxblood/marsala fan.
Do you have a certain piece of clothing you love but find it to be a challenge for you?

Color change

necklace- Poshmark  option  option

last wore this print top with purple and brown. This time I paired it with lighter colored trousers and chose to accent the teal in the top with the cardigan. The color changes make it look like a totally different top.
Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Have you finished your shopping, or are you yet to start? Will you be Black Friday shopping? There have already been some good deals and sales. I think they start earlier every year, but that's fine with me. Just curious, do you get your gifts on Black Friday or shop for yourself?
