It’s finally Friday!!! If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you know that I’ve been battling the sickies all week and this sinus situation will not shake. I’ve tried nearly every suggestion, so I’m hoping something kicks in ASAP. So, all of that to say, sorry I missed yesterday’s post! Whoops! I do hope that you guys have had a wonderful week and that it hasn’t been too crazy, as I know the Holiday panic is setting in for most people. Cutting my ramblings short today and getting straight to The Friday Edit…here we go!
What to Wear to a Casual Holiday Party | This post was a total hit and I’m glad that you guys were able to get some casual Holiday outfit ideas from it. I love the pearl collar tunic and would also totally buy that plaid top from the mood board if it weren’t for this belly 😉 See the full post HERE of shop the looks below…

Instgram Round-up November | These Insta roundups are always a big hit, mainly because I feel like most of you are missing SO much content over on Instagram due to the algorithm changes. Such a bummer, but always know that I will recap the looks over here on the blog!
The most loved items from this months roundup were ALL ON SALE! This $33 tunic was #1, faux fur vest for 40% off was #2 and the $27 ivory tunic (that I have on in almost every photo) #3. Shop all 20+ looks from the full post HERE and see MY personal Top 5 from November below…
Here’s a quick recap of my TOP 5 MOST WORN PIECES FROM THE PAST MONTH!
I also posted a few last minute gifts that will still arrive on time as they all ship Amazon Prime, plus I shared Landry’s personal list to Santa…all in THIS POST!
Top Post: Well woah, you guys liked this one! This was definitely one of the most popular Instagrams in recent memory and I kinda like it as much as you do! This buffalo plaid shirt all but jumped off of the rack into my arms and I happily obliged. I paired it with a chunky marled cardigan, my favorite booties and a topped with a worn in hat, for a casual and cute look that’s still comfy.

I just posted this last night, so some of you might be seeing it here first! I randomly picked up this cardigan the other day, because I really did need a few more loungewear pieces. I 100% change clothes right when I get some into something cozy and this felt like BUTTER, so I ended up buying it. What I didn’t realize was this it was a two in one sweater that was going to simply blow my mind. You can wear it as a long cardigan (left) or snap the buttons at the bottom and wrap it up over your neck to make a sweater (right). Pure genius that had to be designed by a woman, right?!! Perfect for busy mamas, weekend wear, expecting women (hiding a 21 week bump under the wrap on right), or even nursing mamas! This is an amazing gift or something to totally treat yourself to. I stayed in my normal size (M) since this bump isn’t getting any smaller, but in real life, I would suggest sizing down one 🙂 Shop it HERE.

Including this one because I thought this it was pretty, lol! Honestly, I know that I have a problem already…so don’t judge 😉

Getting together with friends tonight and I’m in charge of dessert! I’m bringing my moms famous date balls (trust me on this one and stay tuned because I’m sharing the recipe next week!) and I’m also thinking about attempting this red velvet bundt cake! Fingers crossed because sometimes I can never get the dang things out of the bundt pan…but isn’t it a beauty?
I also shared a recipe for the mini cinnamon rolls yesterday on Instastories and you guys seemed to really like them. They are SO easy, kid friendly and take like 5 minutes to put together…an awesome idea for a fun Christmas morning breakfast. The recipe is HERE, but please excuse the photos 😉
Y’all!!!! We booked Disney this week! I planned our trip for February and I cannot even contain my excitement! I still have to tackle dining + fast passes in Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, so please please send me any tips that you might have!!! #immoreexcitedthanmytoddler
I’m sharing this dress on Instagram in the coming days, but trust me and look into it now! It’s under $50 and SO precious on. It was great for a bump, but also great for no bump too. Looked great layered with my fur vest and a felt hat. Seriously this is a good one! Shop it HERE is 4 colors!
I loved this idea when throwing together a beautiful Holiday table. Roll napkins up, place a simple piece of greenery and a fresh cinnamon stick and wrap together with twine…you could even attach a name tag as a place card. So festive and cute! See all of her ideas HERE.
I’ve been eyeing this little embroidered tunic dress since JUNE and it’s finally on sale! It comes in 3 colors and is SO cute with gladiators.
