Hi Friends! Whew, what a week! I’m sending you all a big fat hug…regardless of your side of the aisle, this has been a long, emotional and hard fought election that I think has us all in need of a beach vacation! On to a few fun things that happened on this blog this week for the Friday Edit…
One Dress Worn 5 Ways | Proof that body con works for busy moms!
Thank you guys so much for the love on this post! I started doubting myself (especially at 16 weeks pregnant) on posting about body con, but I am so glad that I did! It seems a lot of you are with me in shifting your mindset to think of it as less “clubby” and more about a base layer upon which to build and layer an outfit to really show off your best Fall accessories! Aside from loving the actual dress, you also went gaga over this poncho…and duh, it’s under $50 and reversible so it’s really a no brainer!

It was a total toss up between the Holiday Dress Review and the Hostess Gift Guide…you guys liked them virtually the same!
The Holiday Dress Review was pretty comical to put together with the bump in tow! Not even going to lie, I struggled zipping up some of those dresses lol. Your favorites from the review included the emerald green party skirt, jewel neck top and velvet burn out maxi dress!
The Hostess Gift Guide is always fun to put together. I love being well prepared with a great hostess gift (only happens about 50% of the time, sadly) because we all know how much work goes into actually hosting a party! You favorite items were the boxwood wreath (now on sale, thanks to the heads up from a wonderful reader), and the darling peter pan collared apron! You can see the full post HERE or shop directly from the board below!
These were the top two Instagrams of the week! The first one was playing it simple and dressing it up with this fuss free statement necklace.
Suede Flats | Statement Necklace (comes in a TON of colors) | Grey Sweater | Distressed Denim
This tunic feels like butter…I’m going to just leave it there.
Leopard Beanie | Tunic Sweater (Under $50!) | Distressed Denim | Cross Body Bag | Suede Booties (40% off!) |Earrings
This is such an easy DIY, but it turned out so cute. Simply take a Dollar Store foam pumpkin, remove the stem and glue a Dollar Store serving trey on top. Perfect for a layered Thanksgiving buffet that’s inexpensive and EASY! See the details HERE.
Did you guys follow along with the One Room Challenge? I kept up with a few spaces that I was excited to come together…here are my favorites:
Burlap and Lace
My girl Shannon nailed this one! She gave her shared living / dining area the most glam makeover, yet I still feel like it’s cozy and livable. This girl knows glam, y’all!
Cassie always knocks it out of the park! Isn’t this colorful dining room swoon-worthy??
Driven by Decor
Kris created this gorgeous and inviting space that looks so livable. I can see an entire family spending time in here and it makes me so happy!
Looking for the perfect sweater to wear on Thanksgiving?? This cold shoulder sweater has just the tiniest bit of sass and style to add some oomph to the Traditional Turkey Day look and is a great under $100 price. Let me know if you want to see me style it this week!
Cold Shoulder Sweater (comes in 5 colors!)
I literally gasped when I saw this mini tassel earring set!!!!! All of my favorite colors of my favorite earrings in one place and the price is RIGHT to buy for yourself or as a gift!!! Seriously, stock up now for your girlfriends or sisters…this is such a great gift, gals!

Have you guys seen this gift wrap collection??? OH MY HEAVENS, I feel like it is making me re-think my entire tree situation! Seriously though, if you have a few special gifts to give, splurge (I mean $5 so not really) on a few of these boxes. Shop the full collection HERE.
Looking for a fun and funky black clutch to tote around to all of your Holiday events?? This $29 faux fur cutie is is my cart and ready for the Holidays! Such a steal and also a fun gift for girlfriends…
