Happy First Day of Winter everyone! I cannot believe we are approaching the holidays and new year already. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel like the older I get the faster time goes by. I hope everyone is staying warm during the holiday season! It actually has felt more like winter the past few weeks here in North Carolina. We got over a foot of snow two weeks ago. Almost unheard of, especially early in December. I don’t know about you but I love staying cozy in the fall and winter. I think I’ve worn a sweater almost everyday since the temperatures dropped below 50 haha. I love the versatility of a sweater or cardigan and playing with layers. You can get really creative with your outfit, another reason why I love fall and winter! Loft has so many versatile pieces and I put together 2 different looks using the same sweater for you to stay cute and cozy in!
I love me a good cowl neck sweater and this one is OH SO GOOD. I love that it’s more snug, a little unusual for me as I prefer oversized sweaters. I honestly fell in love with the boucle texture. I’ve been wanting to add more texture especially with neutral tones to my closet. I have major “Joanna Gaines” feels in this look and I am not mad about it since I am a country girl at heart. Catch my Instagram stories for the accent.
I played with more textures for this look by mixing Loft’s wool pocket shift skirt and the same sweater. Again, I love neutrals. They’re what I feel most comfortable in and a way I’ve upped the bland look of them is adding pieces with that texture. This look can easily be worn to work, date night or to your family holiday gathering.
Honestly, one of my favorite things about Loft is the versatility of their clothing. I know I mentioned this earlier and you’re going to hear me say it again. When it comes to me investing in clothes, I love things that I can get the most out of. Luckily, my office just switched to a “Dress for Your Day” dress code which allows us to wear more casual clothes. But when I did have to dress business casual for work, Loft was my go-to for pieces that I could not only wear to the office but also wear everyday. It’s still one of my go-to stores when I’m looking to add new pieces to my closet! Plus the staff is always so helpful and friendly which makes the shopping experience even better for me. (Maybe not my wallet haha) I hope ya’ll enjoyed this post and I want to wish you all a Happy Holiday season!
Alright ya’ll, it’s that time of year again. The madness has already began. Holiday shoppers are out and so are the pre-Black Friday sales! I had a friend ask for a post on what I shop for on Black Friday. I’m not one to actually go out and shop on Black Friday. I did it once and I didn’t find that great of deals. Not to mention I HATE CROWDS. What I have learned over time is I find the best deals online. If I can shop from the comfort of my warm bed in my pjs, then I will take that option!
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite retailers with the best deals this week. Things I am hunting for this season are sweaters, boots & accessories. I am also hunting for gifts for the family and him, a gift guide will be up later with ideas! One tip I will give is SIGN UP for email newsletters from your favorite retailers. I have signed up for all of the stores that I frequently shop so I get notifications of when there is a sale. So let’s just get into this already.

I’ve rounded up some pieces that I love from a few of my favorite retailers that are having great sales right now. I will do my best to keep this updated this week in accordance to Black Friday sales! These are all items I would consider buying so I hope you guys enjoy and get you or your family & friends a little something! 🙂
