I must say, I’m super excited to dive into 2015. This year will be a good one. So many exciting things in the pipeline. Wedding! Honeymoon! Potentially a new side business venture (or two, or three)! But first, I must get through the Golden Globe Awards. Wish me luck and I’ll be back on the blog after.
I’m so excited, I could do 10 backflips, but I have no flexibility so I’ve just been doing lots of fist pumps in the air and picturing myself doing backflips. Anyway, you know how much I love Madewell. I know how much YOU love Madewell. Seems like a perfect opportunity to hang at Madewell with Jaymee and I! Plus you can do some last minute holiday shopping and maybe buy yourself a treat.
There will be tons of awesome stuff going on too, like free-flowing bubbly, mini-sized pies, DISCOUNTS (!!!!), and a raffle to win a Twig & Twine wreath. Dream night, I tell ya.
We would love for you to come and hang with us. It’s going to be pretty amazing. Here are the details. See ya there!
This is my Harry Styles outfit. When I told Kyle this, he said “Who is Harry Styles?” WHAT IN THE HECK. Who is this person I’m living with and marrying? (Kyle, not Harry)
I’d like to think Harry would wear this outfit around London on his day off, give or take a leather jacket. He probably wouldn’t be hanging out in a dirty alley though, so that’s where we differ. Such is life.
Anyway, I’d wear an oversized sweater + black jeans combo every day if I could (sometimes I gotta do laundry though). I find a seasonal look and I stick to it (see summer look here), and this year I’m almost exclusively reaching for bulky sweaters, skinny jeans, and ankle boots (shocker of the century, I know). I’ll throw a hat into the mix when my hair is looking funky, which is happening a lot lately. If I sleep on my hair weird, it’s game over. Harry knows a thing or two about funky hair, I should really take notes.
DECEMBER! I’m so happy that it’s finally cooling down in LA and that bulky sweaters are now appropriate for everyday use. Yayyyyy!!! More later…

I’ve never been one to indulge in the Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays of the world, but this year really pulled me in, hook line and sinker (is that the term? I really don’t understand fishing). Like holy crap, there are some good deals y’all. I did some research and found all the Cyber Monday sales that I’ll be partaking in today, both for gifts and a little for myself, let’s be real. I’ve rounded them up here so let’s get crazy:
MADEWELL // 25% off purchase with code GIFTON
There are way too many things in my Madewell cart as per usual, but the Transport tote would make such a great gift (especially monogrammed!) so that’s a must purchase. Also, a floppy fedora for myself.
NEED SUPPLY // 20% off sitewide with code CYBER20
I could easily buy all my holiday gifts here this year, but I’m especially loving the Baggu pouches, selection of ABJ Glassworks (remember this ring pyramid?), and festive scarves.
J. CREW // 30% off select full-price with code HOLIDAY
The sweater selection at J. Crew never disappoints and I always find myself drifting toward the super textured, chunky, and cable varieties. So wintery!
Also, puppies who indulge in a little Cyber Monday action is A-OK by me. I snapchatted this last night of my favorite sibling, Jax, who takes after his sister (me) in the online shopping addiction.
If I were to describe the past 2.5 weeks of my life, it would be the title of this post. I decided to snip off about 5 inches of hair (I WANT IT ALL GONE, I said to my hair stylist quite emphatically). You can’t tell as much in this photo but it’s above my shoulders (see here). I feel like ME for the first time in a long time.
Wisdom teeth. Yes, I spent a drug-fueled (sorry not sorry) weekend recovering from getting my wisdom teeth pulled out. I’m still struggling a bit with it but definitely on the mend. Oh but you should’ve seen the chipmunk-cheeked snapchats I was sending out.
TURKEY. Favorite holiday is coming up. I love eating, bottom line. I also love my family. This year, we’re keeping the menu straightforward and classic, but cutting out all bread products for my mom and aunt who are currently Gluten Free (I’m still eating all the pumpkin pie though). Will report back after.
A few other things on my radar:
- Dying over this new Everlane silk camisole and need every color. The chunky knit collection is on point too. Also, HOW CUTE IS CAROLINE?
- Wit & Delight’s living room and dining room and this room and that. Basically the whole house, Kate. THE WHOLE HOUSE.
- This butt. And now I’m on the hunt for some jeans that will give me a butt.
- 30% OFF AT J.CREW. What is this, the best day ever or something? Eyeing this sweater, some high-rise denim (j.crew high-risers are the best), and this coat that I probably don’t need because it’s 79 degrees outside.
- And finally, going to be a back home baller when we go home for Thanksgiving. Who’s with me?
