Monday Monday

Y'all getting tired of me touting all these dang S A L E S, yet?!?  I kinda can't help myself--they're just entirely too good.  Speaking of good, how great ridiculous is this XMAS SWEATSHIRT?  It's so absurd, but that's exactly why I love it--needless to say, the inappropriate comments were a flowin' between us gals this shoot!
Onto bigger and better things---Cyper Monday Sales!  I'm going to break it down by pieces I'm loving for yourself or think mom, sis, bff (BootiesBags--Oh goodness these TASSLESCoats, & Sweaters)--truly, some of the best prices I've seen yet.  If y"all wanna bypass all my picks and head straight to the goodness, may I recommend:

NORDSTROM--this sale is prob my fave

The Wrap

One of my fave looks as of late is none other than this Wrap paired with (sale) Booties and Distressed Denim.  It's equal parts casual and pulled together.  
Gang, these SALES are all the rage this weekend---I cannot get over how many good deals there are.  Let's take this rig, for instance....rarely do you find these AVIATORS on sale, but sure enough, babies are 30% off in all colors!  In need of BOOTIES?   Sole Society has one of the better bootie sales I've seen (see TasselsNavy, & Flats)--ps:  I have all three of these and can attest to their greatness!  But one of the best sales I've scouted out so far is indeed Nordstrom's--I mean it's a dang Sales Vortex (see BackpackWatches, & Clutch).  It's a bit absurd how good the savings are.  Be sure to check out some of my other Black Friday Deals from Friday's Post!
Alright gang, cheers to a lovely Sunday.  Be sure to swing by tomorrow for more Cyber Monday Deals!  Make it a great one!

But back to the issue at hand, BLACK FRIDAY SALES!!!  Oh there's a T O N of goodin's, gang--many that I already OWN AND LOVE!  This may sound terrible, but I typically take advantage of THESE SALES for myself--mostly because I've already started on the little ladies.  I'm going to focus on several categories that I'm clocking (and have already taken the plunge and BOUGHT)---HOLIDAY DRESSESSWEATERS--I OWN ALL OF THESE AND LOVEDENIM,  SHADES--best price I've EVER seen, ACCESSORIES many good SALE finds it's quite overwhelming, but hopefully this edit will help calm our Black Friday nerves!  See my picks below gang--Happy Shopping!

Black Fridayish

Buckle up, gang.  We ready to do this?  I'm about to get to cooking for me and the babes--we are keeping it low key today with just the three of us as we'll be celebrating with their dad's side of the family come Sunday...then spending Xmas with my folks in Florida.  I'm actually quite excited to stay in our pjs and just chill.  And eat.  And SHOP.  It seems that Black Friday has quickly turned into Black M,T,W,Th---but whatevs, I'll take it.  So I'm sharing some things that I'm eyeing for both Myself and for Gift Recipients.  Sticking with my old faithfuls for Sale Finds, because it's what I know and it's what I like.  SHOPBOP is offering up to 25% off with code GOBIG15--I mean, how great is this gal for your BFF or sis?  I also just snagged a PAIR OF THESE and I friggin' love them---also great for best gal, sister, tween, yourself!  NORDSTROM is indeed serving up some solid sales as well---see SATCHEL for MomTOTE for YOU, or NYE Frock.  And for cold weather essentials, I always go to one of my faves, JCrew is having 30% OFF.  Think Pom Poms & Puffs for yourself or the women in your life!  Sweaters at 50% off with code CORNY from loft---well, hells, that's just a given we should snag a few, am I right?  Alright gang, I say "Let's pace ourselves," every year, but let's be honest, shall we?  That ain't happening.  Never does.  I'll do my best to load us up with solid sale finds and gift ideas leading up to the big day.  Beyond thankful for you all and for stopping by s + s on the regular---truly,'re the best!  Make it a wonderful one with your crew today and soak up the family time!  Hugs and Loves from Kentucky!

cardigan (Gap, old, love this Cableknit Cardi), shirt (Gap), denim (Paige), boots (Sperry ON SALE), bag (Gigi New York), shades (Ray Ban), rings (BcbgAnna Beck)

Well, I'm super excited to report yesterday's POST was a H U G E success as all of the KELLY SADDLE BAGS sold out in TWO HOURS!!!  I cannot thank y'all enough for your kind words of support--truly.  As a way of saying thank you, Gigi New York is offering a 20% off with code SOLDOUT if you'd like to snag something else---say maybe THIS EMERALD BEAUTY or THIS GORGEOUS TOTE---endless (fabulous) options.  
Onto the rig, simply stated--I dig it.  What's not to love with a solid print mix, Zippered Skinnies, and 
PLAID DUCK BOOTS?  It's just one of those looks you can toss on and go but still look pulled together.  Alright gang, I've gotta get the bunnies off to school and prep for my guy to visit us from Indy.  Cheers to a lovely weekend---make it a great one!

The Bag Lady

bag (Gigi New York Inspired by Yours Truly), boots (Stuart Weitzman see STEAL), skirt (Loft), shirt (Jcrew ON SALE), vest (Jcrew), rings (BCBGAnna Beck), shades (Ray Ban)

To say that I'm beyond excited about today's look would be quite the understatement!  Not sure if y'all recall my visit to the Gigi New York Headquarters, but These Beauties were the end result of that fantastic trip.  The Kelly Saddle Bag immediately caught my eye when I visited the design room for several reasons---its classic yet modern shape and size, it's a cross body which is one of my fave shapes, and the name---Kelly is my maiden name and well Saddles...seemed like the obvious choice for me to add some fun touches and Re-Invent the Kelly!  I knew upon visiting I wanted to use haircalf*--it was a non-negotiable and adds that little extra punch.  And after seeing the plethora of options for me to choose from, I narrowed it down to a relatively neutral palette of GraysTansCreams, & Browns.  I cannot tell you how happy I am with the end result and how much I carry MY BAG--no really, y'all are gonna get sick and tired of seeing this bad boy I've shot it so much here lately!  But here's the fun part, each Kelly Saddle Bag is one of a kind--no two bags are alike!  I know this because I got the ole' hands dirty and cut a slew of patterns and made sure to keep each one unique.  Stay tuned for many different ways I'm styling The Kelly  and in the meantime, be sure to shop some of my faves from the collection below!  Cheers to a wonderful Thursday, gang--make it a great one!

** Haircalf is similar to regular leather except a special tanning process is used to preserve the coat.  Top quality hides such as these preserve the natural patterns.  All cowhide leathers are generated by the food industry and the hides are by-products.  No animals are ever raised for the use of their coats.
