Black Friday Sales + Favorites



Every year, I get excited for Black Friday!  I remember as a little girl on Thanksgiving being at my Grandma’s house, and watching the women in my family pour over the ads and plan their attack!  As I got older, I was excited when I got to start participating and joining in on the fun!  We still pour over the ads after Thanksgiving dinner, but with online shopping it opens a whole opportunity for shopping.  I am starting to scour over my favorite sites and hunting for what I cannot live with out.  I decided to share some of my favorite sales, and what I am adding to my wish list.  If you are looking for ideas for your Christmas List check out my Christmas List here.  What is on your wish lists this year?

My Favorite Dress for Fall

There are so many things that I love about this dress!  I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it!  I decided to be good and not spend the money at that time.  Then that weekend Loft had a sale online, and I couldn’t resist!  If you are loving this dress as much as I am check out Loft’s Halloween sale right now!  Everything is currently 40% online only using code MYSTERY40.



Let’s talk about what I love about this dress!  The fabric is thick and soft and oh so comfy!  It literally feels like you are wearing your PJ’s.  There is nothing better than a dress that looks great, but is not constricting.  My other favorite part about this dress is how forgiveness of the shape.  It flows away from the body hiding all the parts I want hidden.  My favorite part though about this dress is the sleeves!  Double bell sleeves that just make this dress a little extra special!  I cannot wait to style this dress with leggings and booties now that it is a little cooler!  So after I wrote this post I realized that it sold out!  Never fear though I linked some of my favorite bell sleeve dresses that are currently on sale.

Stripes and Florals

Outfit Details || Top: c/o Simple Addiction || Skirt: c/o Simple Addiction || Sandals: Old Navy || Necklace:  Kendra Scott || Bracelets: c/o Centered Jewelry || Sunglasses: Loft || Bag:  c/o Vera Bradley

You know how I said last week I didn’t have any cold shoulder items.  Well as of this week this item #3!  Do you ever find yourself not sure about a trend, and then decide you love it and buy everything that you can? Well, that is me and I find myself doing it all the time!  I’ve decided that summer cold shoulder tops are now my favorite thing!  I am still not sure about wearing them in the winter though.

To say I am obsessed with florals and stripes is an understatement!  They are two of my favorite patterns and are the perfect patterns to pattern mix together.  I have a huge section of my closet dedicated to these two patterns.  This dreaming of floral top from Simple Addiction was a must have with new obsession with cold shoulder tops.  This top has so many perfect details.  From the criss cross top, the feminine cold shoulder, down to the flowiness at the bottom.


I have been looking for a striped cotton skirt for a while.  I found this one from Simple Addiction, and I love it!  For sizing purposes this is a medium.  I could have sized up to a large for a slouchier fit.  This one works perfectly though for a more polished look!  I decided to knot the top to give the silhouette of this top a more defined outline.  These two pieces I consider closet staples.  They can be worn with so many other looks, and into other seasons!


Since the humidity has been high in Indiana, I decided to keep my accessories simple.  I decided the colors in my bracelet stack from Centered Jewelry helped enhance the look versus make it even busier.  When pattern mixing, it is a delicate balance to make everything work.  I also added my Elisa Necklace that I won from Tiff and Nicole’s giveaway on Bright on a Budget and What Nicole Wore.  It is the perfect layering piece, but is also one of my favorites to wear on its own.


Simple Addiction is one of the first site’s I found after joining Instagram.  I loved their trendy, but reasonably priced items.  Everything I have ever ordered or received from them have been of the highest quality.  Currently Simple Addiction is having their Anniversary Sale.  There are so many fabulous items on sale and for great prices.  The sale is July 15-24.  You can also use code MANDY15 for an additional 15% off.  What are your favorite pieces?

Summer Trends: Gingham Shorts

Disclaimer:  This post contains affiliate links.  All thoughts and content are my own.

One of my favorite things to look for at the start of each season is what is trending.  So let’s start talking about summer trends!  Gingham is showing up all over Instagram and in stores!  To see some of my favorite gingham pieces scroll down to the bottom of this post!  Most of them are also on sale!

Outfit Details || Top: Old || Shorts: Loft (currently on sale) || Shoes: Amazon || Necklace: Gift || Sunglasses: c/o Vera Bradley || Bracelets: c/o Centered Jewelry ||


I found these shorts at Loft and knew that I had to have them.  These shorts fit true to size.  The length is perfect so you don’t feel like you are constantly having to pull them down.  I decided for the inaugural wearing of these shorts that I wanted an easy and carefree look.



Since I have been trying to mix in older pieces lately, I decided to pull out this boho top from Target.  I love the embroidery details along with the flutter sleeves.  For my accessories, I decided to go for a bolder necklace.  My monogram came from my sweet friend teacherannie.  If you haven’t seen her Instagram page you need to check it out!  To even out the accessories, I decided to add a bracelet stack from Centered Jewelry and my simple Kendra Scott Tima earrings.  What is your favorite summer trend this year?
