What To Pack for a Girls Trip

I'm going to share something about me with you all today that even I can't believe.  I haven't been on a girls trip in over six years!  Yep, that's right...I haven't been on a trip with just girls, besides work events, in what seems like forever.  I have three kids, the oldest is six, and it was before he was born that I was able to leave for a weekend get away.  Now don't get me wrong, I've been on plenty of trips with the hubby and friends, I've just never been able to leave all three kids with my husband for the weekend.  It doesn't help that I have a just turned two year old that is literally like an appendage on me, but that's another story.  So, yes, I will be off on a weekender to Chicago with the girls and I'm totally pumped. Question is, what to wear?  I've pulled a few outfits together that can take you from day to night, pack easily, and will have you looking smokin hot on your next vacay.

Day #1
Shopping Trip

Dinner and Drinks Attire

Day #2

Late Night

Day #3

Now, all I have to do is pack!

D.A.S.H. Link Up

Welcome to D.A.S.H.!  D.A.S.H. stands for Deals And Steals blog Hop and today is the inaugural link up that three amazing bloggers and myself have been working on for a few weeks.  Here's how it works...

Every Thursday we will be hosting this link up for you all to link back to your amazing deals and steals you've found recently and want to share with everyone.  It can be a picture of you wearing your deal, or just something on line you want to purchase.  Whatever it is, we want to see your post about it so we can all share in the deal!  The only rule is to please link back to all four of our blogs when you post since your link up will show up on all four blogs. Wine Taste Girl, Pinterest Told Me To, Get Your Pretty On and Found In My Closet.  So link up and check out the other blogs linking up as well.  I bet you come away with some great deals!

On to my latest deal and steal...

I already own a chambray top but I wear it so much that I bought another one.  Do you ever do that?  I know it sounds ridiculous, but whenever I want to wear it, the shirt always seems to be dirty so I really needed another one, right?  Well this one is from the J. Crew Factory store, was 40% off plus I had a special additional 20% off coupon so it was practically free! (Well not really, but almost).  Since not every town has a J. Crew Factory Store, and I'm sorry if you don't because that store is awesome, I found a similar shirt at Old Navy.  Better yet, Old Navy is running a 20% off deal if you enter the code ONHOLIDAY at checkout.  Love it!

Speaking of deals and steals, if you are in the Nashville/Brentwood area you don't want to miss an amazing designer consignment sale going on tonight at 5:30pm and again on Friday at 3pm.  Here's the link if you want to see more information and pics.  Click Here for More Info.  This will be a fabulous sale!

What to Wear to a Christmas Party

Tis the season for all things that sparkle and your outfit for your upcoming annual Christmas parties should not disappoint. When choosing a must have piece, go for something that is versatile, yet festive so you can invest in a piece you can where to multiple events. I choose just such piece this year when I purchased this fun little number I will affectionately call my sparkle shirt

This gush worthy top I found at Saks Off Fifth the other day and it was marked down 40%! Gotta love those sales. What is so great about a shirt like this, is you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion. For dinner and drinks with the girls, pair it with black jeans and stilettos similar to the look I'm rockin here... 

 For the office party, or a dressy cocktail affair, pair it with a short black skirt, tights and pumps. So easy, festive and versatile. Want this look for your next party? 

 Shop It Here!

Old Navy Skinny Jeans

What Are You Doing This Turkey Day?

What To Wear On Thanksgiving...Part 2

On Monday, I brought you all my idea of the perfect dress to wear this Thanksgiving.  Well, today, I'm bringing you a much more casual look...the colored jeans.  If you prefer to spend your Thanksgiving holiday in something more laid back than a cute dress, then you should consider the fall colored jeans.  Whether it be crisp mustard yellow, oxblood, or burnt orange, you can't go wrong incorporating a little fall color flair into your jeans.  This also just so happens to be a great outfit if you are traveling this week.  Here's my idea of the perfect casual Turkey Day look.
Over sized knit, colored denims (in a fall hue of course!), and riding boots.  Stylish and comfortable.

A cream colored roomy knit is so versatile and should be a staple in your wardrobe.  

Top it off with fabulous arm candy and you will be rockin the casual Thanksgiving Day ensemble. 

I'm linking up today for What I Wore Wednesday's. Hop on over to The Pleated Poppy to join in on all the fun.
