Sale Shopping

Asos has got a sale going on and of course I couldn't resist at least checking it out. Browsing turned into putting things in my cart which turned into buying...whoops. I just can't resist a good sale! My picks for an upcoming vacation or when the summer sunshine hits.

These boots are made for walkin


Just bought these amazing boots! I've been searching high and low for some winter boots to keep my feet warm during this cold Chicago winter that aren't boring or 'ugg' like. (Sorry ugg lovers) These bad boys are faux fur, have a fleece lining to keep my toes warm, really make a statement and are on sale! WOO!

Great Gift Ideas

I'm always a last min. Christmas gift shopper. It never fails, every year I find myself stressing out and power shopping the final days before the Santa man arrives. I found these adorable mugs yesterday while doing some shopping at Anthropologie. It's a perfect gift that you can fill with other fun, makeup, gift cards, etc. Its a perfect idea for all those fabulous friends you have!

Since winter is now here (blah) it's the season for wearing lots of layers, oversized items, faux fur and all those goodies. I'm obsessed with the blanket cardigan I bought last year, it's still oh so fabulous. But a girl can always have multiple blanket cardies :)
