Weekend Reading: 12.5.15

1 // 2 // 3

This weekend why don't you :: rethink your denim! I love the added touch of the scarves & cozy sweater above!

{what you might have missed on Here&Now}

{1.} Having so much fun with layers this season & my leopard coat is a major player! 

{2.} What I'll be wearing to my work holiday party this evening! Sparkly polka dots? Yes please! 

{3.} Don't forget to enter the $100 shopping gift card giveaway! Ends Sunday & a chinch to sign up! 

{4.} This plaid shirt has been on heavy rotation in my closet this Fall - see how I styled it for both casual errands & a glam Christmas card shoot.  

{5.} The cozies tees & each purchase supports an amazing organization that helps to find homes for dogs in high-kill shelters (discount code in post!). 

{posts I'm loving around the internets}

{1.}  I have never much gotten bought in to the whole thigh high boots trend (unless your name is Julia Roberts), but I love how Shelby styled this pair!

{2.} Color blocked accessories are catching my eye lately. Loving this cape on Emily, scarf on Blair, & poncho on Kristin!

{3.} There are some bloggers that I have followed for so long online that I am convinced we would be real life BFFS (despite never having met) & AJ is one of those people. A fellow pug mother, I love how she styled this pug sweater! #puglife

{4.} What are your feelings on {faux} leather leggings? Kendi rocks them (of course), but I don't know if I can still pull them off!

{5.} Midi skirts have a dear place in my heart & I can't get over how chic this camel midi skirt number is on Emily!  

{what I'm shopping now}

{1.} J.Crew Factory has new arrivals!!! From the women's section, I'm loving this printed blouse (the blue color is so gorgeous!) & the pattern on this fair isle sweater reminds me of feathers (in a good way). If you fit into the kids clothes, I'm obsessed with this sweater from the girls' department & would rock the heck out of this striped hoodie from the boys' section.

{2.} My husband is defending his thesis this coming Wednesday, & after 6 years of being students in Nashville (he has been working on his Ph.D. the whole time, I spent 4 years on my Master's & have now been teaching middle school for the last 2 years) it feels like major changes are coming our way. I like to celebrate new chapters in our lives with art prints & love all of the selections from Rifle Paper Co. - my only black Friday purchase was their "The world is your oyster" print, it just arrived & is perfect! Big things coming for our family in the coming months! 

{3.} After my husband defends said Ph.D., he is traveling to Europe to celebrate, & just got this awesome bag from my sister & brother-in-law, to take with him. It is carry-on size, & can either be worn as a cross body or backpack! What a great gift!

{4.} I know these are all turning out to be dude things, but guys are so hard to shop for & when I find good things, I have to share! My husband needed some new jackets, so I got him this buffalo plaid one from J.Crew Factory & a peacoat from Gap Factory. I love the basic outerwear currently available at Gap Factory - perfect for any guy in your life!

{5.} I have been trying to find new ways to style my shorter length hair & the best tool I have found for straight and curly styles is this 1 inch flat iron from ghd - it is spendy, but is seriously the only hot too you'll need!
