Just Reduced.

A few things just marked down.

The Tory Burch Manda Dress.  Love it, had to order it.  I had been patiently waiting for it to go on sale!

The matching horse blouse which I also own is marked down as well.  I am wearing a 4.

The blouse version of my Cora Dress was marked down too.  The pattern is so much more gorgeous in person.  This would be a great blouse that you could wear for work and also on the weekends.

The Fringe adjustable shoulder bag is reduced as well.  I really want this and love all the colors.
Nordtrom just started their Clearance Sale
These Rag and Bone Newbury Booties are 40% off-I know I blog about the Newbury boots often but they are a favorite of mine and you will not find them cheaper than 40% off.

The gray canvas version is also 40%.  I own the tan ones in the canvas style and really like it for a more casual look.

If you need a plaid blouse, I just love this Joie version also comes in Navy.  

Best Zella leggings ever now 25% off.

I love these Alor bracelets.  I borrow my moms all the time.  They are rarely reduced 40% off so a great time to buy one.  They look so good layered!
 The Pave Bar Version is also 40%.  

On Saks this Equipment Star Blouse is marked down.  I always love a star print.  It is full price everywhere else.

 Some fabulous deals, a great time to get a head start on Christmas shopping!

Loaded Potato Dip

I have now made this dip twice in a week.  It's that good.  Plus it is super easy,  it takes like 5 minutes to whip it all together.  Such a great appetizer to bring to a party, would be great for football watching too.  I served ours with Ruffles Potato Chips, but someone commented on my instagram that they serve theirs with waffle fries and I think that is a genius idea.   This seriously tastes like a loaded potato and what is not to love about that??   Bacon + Sour Cream + Cheese = a damn good combo. Try not to eat it by the spoonful I dare you!!

|| L O A D E D  P O T A T O   D I P ||

- 1 16 oz Sour Cream
- 1 8oz block of cheddar cheese grated ( I prefer to grate my own cheese I like the texture better and think it tastes better)
- 8 pieces bacon cooked and crumbled
- 4 green onions chopped
- handful of chives chopped
- 1 tablespoon hot sauce
- salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together, save a little bit of the bacon, cheese, chives, and onions to garnish with.  Best if it can sit in the fridge a few hours before you serve it.

I am convinced I need this dress for the holidays.    The gator print, color, and style make me swoon.

These booties are out of my budget but a girl can dream.   They are gorgeous!!

The girls at Cooper and Ella were sweet enough to send me this blouse and I adore it.  Great for work or play.  Their blouses are a great price point too.

This is a great tunic to pair with leggings.  I own a few Riller and Fount pieces and they are so soft and versatile.

This is hands down my favorite holiday candle.  I am not ashamed to admit I put mine out this weekend and lit it.  Ready for everything Christmas.  It smells amazing.
This is on my Christmas list, such a gorgeous coffee table book.

I am loving this new Joie Blouse.  It comes in such pretty colors!

I am kind of loving the fact that bucket bags are making a comeback.  This is my favorite version I have seen.  The color and gold hardware are just perfect.

If you need a camisole for layering this is a great one. Comes in nude and black.  Great alone in the summer or so cute under a cardigan or leather jacket as well.

These are my new favorite workout pants.  The material is fabulous and they sit higher up and suck you in, plus the colors are awesome.

I have been all about long necklaces lately.  This one is stunning. I like the vintage feel of it and the gold would go with everything!  Extra 30% off right now too!

Lastly Saks just did some major markdows- it is worth taking a browse.  My Rag and Bone Nicole Long Sleeve Tee was marked down.  This is the long sleeve version of the tank one I loved and I have been wearing this one non-stop.  A great buy.

The acid wash V-Neck version of the Rag and Bone Tee is also reduced 40% off.  I wear mine at least once a week.  I am wearing a small in both shirts.

 Also reduced is the striped Miller Tee.  Another favorite of mine (I know so many favorites but I swear by Rag and Bone Tees, they are my go to casual wear).  Wearing a small.

Scenes From Our Weekend

I can't believe is November already.  I can feel myself starting to get stressed out thinking about planning Thanksgiving which we host every year, Frances Moon's birthday party which is two days after Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping.  I have mucho to do in these next few weeks.

We had a fantastic weekend.  It was cold in Charleston, like really cold Saturday but I loved it!!

It was fun that Halloween fell on a Friday this year.  We always go over to our good friends house and trick or treat over there.  They close down the streets and have a big carnival.  Its such a fun tradition.  The kids had a blast.

While I was in Charlotte I bought a new piece of furniture for our dining room. I found the piece at a Consignment Store called Clearing House, if you live in Charlotte check it out they get some awesome pieces in.   I had so much fun styling it, although I think it still needs some tweaking.

I also found a new light for my dining room at Lowes of all places.  It was more the sputnik look I was going for.
 This is so typical I buy something then find something I like better.  But I have a solution the West Elm light will go in Sterling's room,  his light fixture is so old and dim so the light will look great in there.  Hoping to have them both installed this week with pictures to come.

I tried out two recipes out of the new Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, Make It Ahead.  The cookbook is a real winner, I highly recommend it.  Both recipes were amazing and easy, I will be making them again.
Parmesan Kale Chips | Peas With Pancetta

My Rag and Bone Hunter boots arrived and I have to say I love them.  I wore them Saturday,  they were perfect for the yucky weather.  They are still on sale with a few sizes left.

Took some hilarious pics of the kids.
Our new gas station blankets came in handy this weekend with all the cold weather.  They washed and dried perfectly.

 Basically wore the same outfit all weekend. Gotta love lululemon- cute even when you are not working out!
