Hi gals and happy Tuesday! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just two days away??? Where the heck did this month go? Though I hate how fast time passes by, I am pretty darn excited to eat my face off on Thursday and to begin decking our halls for Christmas! I used to be quite the shopping procrastinator (like Christmas Eve) when it came to finding the perfect gifts for my loved ones. And after a few hectic experiences and swearing to myself I would never wait to the last minute again, I have finally got my buns in gear to get my shopping done early! I have the most adorable mom and sister, plus some pretty fabulous galpals, so I created this gift guide with them in-mind. Most everything you see here is under $50, plus free shipping! I can’t get over those emoji earrings (like hello, perfect for your favorite social media lovin’ lady in your life) and those black booties are under $75! Not to mention those darling accent pillows and glitter stemless wineglasses are not only darling, but inexpensive and ideal for a cozy homebody and/or wine lover!
Hello friends! My apologies for being absent for the past week 😦 I began my new job on Monday and I literally have not even had time to eat three meals, let alone blog and be an IG friend. So please accept my apology and I am trying to get back into the swing of things!
Moving on… THESE SHOES! I have been stalking/watching/waiting/praying about these Kate Spade glitter and bow loafers for the past two months and by the grace of God and because I have baby feet; these beauties were marked down below $50 and I got the last pair in the entire store! I had no intention of purchasing that day, but let’s be honest, there was no way in hell I would walk away from these! That would have been crazy; pure nuttiness!
I paired them with my favorite AG skinny ankle jeans (ankle on tall people, regular length jeans on shorties like myself), a candy-colored necklace, a classic gingham button-down, my trusty leopard belt from Target, some armcharm from Mindy Mae’s Market and, of course, my first and favorite Kate Spade bag. On Wednesday we celebrated National Denim Day to support Sexual Violence Awareness & Prevention and I must say, I am so proud and honored to work and belong to an organization where community engagement, support, and programming is of the utmost importance. I am right where I need to be, and that is a priceless feeling!
I have not been able to locate the KS glitter & bow shoes online for as on-the-cheap as I got them for, but I have found some fabulous options for all of my budget-abiding gal pals!
