My Cyber Monday Sale PicksΒ 

Hey friends!
I don’t know about y’all, but I am such a fan of online shopping (helloooo Amazon Prime!) I have a body measuring tape I keep at home, and so most times to avoid crazy sale lines and chaotic stores, I just keep my measurements and order based on a stores size chart when they have a good online sale! Now, especially since I am about to be married, I have been on the hunt for far more than clothes, so I wanted to share a list of my favorite cyber Monday sites for a variety of things that are having great sales! These are great sites to shop for people on your Christmas list, or maybe just some early Christmas presents for yourself πŸ˜‰.

1. Lulu’s: one of my favorite sites, they have such adorable, great quality clothes! Get an additional 40% your order (with code 40CYBER) at checkout, applicable to their awesome sale items too! I snagged this beautiful suede trench coat for $33, and loved these corduroy flares

2. Kohl’s: Ah, good ole Kohl’s. I’ve bought pretty much all of our small appliances for our house from here (as well as our groomsmens suits for the wedding) on crazy sales! I got this waffle maker, toaster oven, and griddle for $7.99 each (with rebates), as well as this blender, food processor, and hand mixer for next to nothing with my Kohl’s cash and coupons! Shop today and get 20% off (use promo code DEALSEAKER) plus $10 off $50 or more (promo code MONDAY.) Plus, you get $10 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend, which is awesome! 

3. Nordstrom: I am (sadly) not getting anything from this sale, but this is a really great one to shop to get brand name items on a good sale, which is a rarity! I was drooling over these classic Hunter boots (25% off), as well as these beautiful Vince Camuto over the knee boots (40% off.) 
4. Forever 21: Having a good sale on some beautiful cold-weather staples today, plus an addition 21% off your order (with promo code CYBER21.) Just got this adorable skirt from there recently as well as this sweater in both Olive and Mauve, and I am loving the quality!  

5. MissGuided: Excuse the underwear that pops up with that link, but this site is another favorite of my with great quality clothing and a code for 50% off your purchase today (using code YESYESYES.) They have some really beautiful coats, sweaters, and denim on there so I would take full advantage of that sale if you are in the market for some! 

6. Bath and Body Works: Who doesn’t love like all of their stuff? I’m a sucker for their 3-wick candles. 25% off your order (with code CYBERWOAH) and $12.50 3-wick candles! 

7. Rugs USA: Kicking myself that I didn’t wait till cyber Monday to order our rug from here, because now it is super marker down! Great site for rugs, great quality, and having a up to 90% off sale today! 

8. World Market: They are having a buy more, save more sale today (30% off $200 or more, etc.) and I wish I could buy this beautiful floor lamp! Definitely a great place to shop today for home goods! 

9. Old Navy: 50% off site wide, discount automatically applied at check out! Grab these super soft tees for as low as $8!

10. Sole Society: This site of gloriously beautiful shoes is having a 30% off the entire site sale! All their boots and booties are adorable and rarely on sale, so this is a good one! 

That was my quick round up, there are tons of other sites hosting great sales, but I was impressed with these ones the most! Happy shopping! ☺️

Cozy Fall FindsΒ 

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone!


The holidays were definitely in the air this weekend. Between the family bonfires and the yummy cold weather food, not to mention seeing a Christmas tree lighting at the Avalon (a little too premature for my taste though, I like to take my holidays one at a time πŸ˜‰.) 

Top: Old Navy, Denim: Dress Up (similar HERE), Blanket Scarf: Shein, Boots: DSW (similar HERE), Tote: Altar’d State (similar HERE.) 

This scarf might just be one of my favorite cold weather staples ever. It is seriously so comfy and cute and can be worn an infinite amount of ways! I snagged it off of Shein.com for only $13, and I am really happy with the quality! Also, the top I am wearing is like a fleecy long sleeved tee and it is so. soft. I grabbed it in three different colors because it is such a great layering piece, and they’re on an even better sale online at just $10! Go grab some before they run out, outfit links are above! 

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday! πŸ’•

Love,

Project House to Home: DIY Coffee Table MakeoverΒ 

Happy weekend friends!

As promised, I am sharing my latest project for the house! I am so excited about this piece because since adding it in with the rug and the couches, I feel like it’s given the living room such a homey feel. 

Total project cost: about $40

I scored this unique coffee table off of a local yard sale page for $25 because it was very dinged up, but still a solid, quality piece! Plus, I loved how it had sliding doors that we could use to hide remotes and such easily! I used a brush, roller  and primer that I already had and then paid about $13 for paint and a few dollars for some latex gloves (a worthy investment for when it came to painting those little shelves!) All in all, I’m so happy with how it turned out! 

Room deets: Rug (on a Black Friday sale now for even cheaper than I got it *kicks self.) Throw Pillows: T.J. Maxx Homegoods. Fur Throw: Gifted (similar HERE.) Wooden Accent Bowl: Homegoods. Pet Bed: you guessed it, Homegoods πŸ˜‰

The steps I used to redo this piece are the same as for the hutch I redid, with the only difference being paint color! I used a quart of Behr’s Premium Plus Paint and Primer in One in “Burnished Pewter,” and it was the perfect amount for this piece! Now, onto my next project, getting ambitious and gonna try to strip paint and stain, cross your fingers for me! πŸ˜¬πŸ˜…

Love,

Versatile Pieces

Hello friends! πŸ’•

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week! 


This Sunday I was getting dressed for church and put this outfit together, and I just felt like it was so versatile! Not only could the outfit itself be worn to many different things (work, holiday parties, and nice dinners came to mind), but all of the pieces themselves could be worn with a wide variety of things. The blouse looks great dressed up and dressed down, the pencil skirt works with a variety of different tops and shoes (not to mention is great for the whole no shave November thing πŸ˜‚), and the booties can be worn with practically anything! I’m big on functionality, so I love that all of this can be worn a variety of ways! 

Blouse: T.J. Maxx (similar HERE.) Pencil Skirt: Old Navy ($8 clearance buy, similar HERE.) Bralette: Victoria’s Secret (on sale for $10!) Booties: DSW (similar HERE.) Earrings: Altar’d State ($3 clearance buy.) 

You don’t see the bralette I mentioned in the outfit details, but I wore it just in case with the top having a keyhole, and wanted to mention it because they are on sale right now for $10! πŸ™Œ

What are some of your favorite versatile pieces? 

Love,

Matchy-MatchyΒ 

I am not typically a super matchy person, but this was just too tempting! 

It was like the outfit stars aligned. I saw the boots, I saw the hat, I saw the shirt all including that beautiful wine/burgundy color and I just had to do it! 

Plaid: Old Navy (from last fall, similar HERE.) Denim: Dress Up. Boots: DSW (no longer in stock, can be bought in other colors HERE, similar HERE.) Hat: Dress Up (similar HERE, 25% off!) 

I bought all of this last season, so I don’t have all of the exacts to link you, but got everything on major sales! The boots are Marc Fisher, and I got them on sale from DSW and used a certificate I got as a rewards member on top of that to snag them for a great deal! For fellow shoe lovers, DSW has great sales and clearance, and also has a great rewards program, so I would definitely create an account if you haven’t already! 

Happy weekend everyone! πŸ’•

My Favorite Cardigan + a Farewell to Open-Toed ShoesΒ 

Happy Fri-yay y’all! πŸ™Œ 

When you’re trying to keep your hair out of your face and you accidentally become this emoji πŸ’πŸ½


Derick and I decided to break up the long week by doing a little Thursday night sushi + movie date, which always gives me a nice excuse to dress up a bit! We saw The Girl on the Train (which was decent, didn’t quite live up to the awesome book in my personal opinion,) but we had a great time and enjoyed a nice evening out! Despite wanting this weather to turn a little cooler, I’m taking this last little bit of warmer weather to wear some cute open-toed lace-up heels (which I bought for $19 online from DSW’s clearance sale!) before I have to say farewell for a little while.High-low cardigan sweater: Francesca’s (similar HERE.) Ruffle tank: Altar’d State (similar HERE, HERE.) Jeans: Dress Up (similar HERE.) Lace-up heels: DSW (can also be bought HERE, HERE, & HERE.) Bag: Francesca’s (similar HERE.) Earrings: Altar’d State (similar HERE.) 

Speaking of sales, this entire outfit is comprised of things I have gotten on clearance/during sales! I got the tank at Altar’d States clearance sale for $1.79 (that’s not a typo, you read right!), the earrings from there as well for $4, the bag and the cardigan from Francesca’s on sale/clearance awhile back (both for under $20 I believe,) and the jeans from Dress Up when they had a $19 sale on denim! It is an incredibly rare thing for me to buy something if it isn’t on a sale of some kind, and that is my number one shopping tip I always give. I know it is super tempting to buy the new, adorable full-priced thing that just came in the store, but I can almost guarantee you that it will go on a sale of some kind within a month or two, or the store will have some kind of promotion, so if you can be a little patient and resist, it pays off a lot! This whole outfit retailed at about $250 and I bought all of it (over time) for about $78! Since some of the items are less recent (like the cardigan unfortunately,) I wasn’t able to find it anymore online, which I was so bummed about because I wanted to share it with y’all since it’s one of my favorite pieces! I did link similars for the ones I couldn’t find the exacts of, I hope you enjoy! 😘 

What are some of your tips and tricks for dressing on a budget?

Love,

70’s Vibes in FlaresΒ 

Hello + Happy Monday!

I have no doubt that many of you are suffering from the Monday Blues like I am, and longing for the weekend that seemed to go by wayyy too fast. I spent most of my weekend soaking up this beautiful fall weather at Derick’s family’s River House and enjoyed leaving the world behind for a little while! A little recharge in nature always comes exactly when I need it. 

A huge staple in my fall closet this year is my collection of flare jeans! Not only are they super cute and flattering, but so incredibly comfortable. I love my skinnies, but they can definitely feel a little suffocating at times and I often opt to just wear leggings instead. These flares especially have a really nice stretch to them and the high waist has a surprisingly nice feel to it, not to mention it’s super flattering since it hits at the smallest part of your waist! However, flares can be a little tricky if you are on the shorter side like myself. I went into Express a little while ago and asked the salesperson where the flare jeans were, to which he responded, “Girl, are you even tall enough for flares?”

 …Which elicited this face haha! A blooper take that worked too well with the story not to use!

As much as I hated to admit it, he did have a point though! Standing at 5’3″, I wasn’t exactly the leggy model they always show sporting flares. Despite my loving the comfort aspect of flare jeans, I would have to sacrifice a few other things to have well-fitted, good looking flares! 

Cardigan: Altar’d State (on sale, similar HERE.) Tank: Altar’d State (sale, similar HERE.) Jeans: Abercrombie (out of stock, identical pair HERE.) Booties: Altar’d State (sale, similar HERE, HERE.) 

The first thing you need to be prepared for when getting flares as a shorty is that you will most likely need to have them hemmed. I bought three pairs and needed 2 of 3 hemmed. I took them to my trusty seamstress and got them done for $10 a piece, so you do need to be prepared to invest a little money into these jeans when you get them (totally worth it though!) When you get them hemmed, keep in mind you probably don’t want the hem any higher than 1/2″ off the floor from the back of your leg, and you need to wear the type of shoe you will most often wear with those jeans when you get them hemmed! Which brings me to my next point, that as someone on the shorter side, if you want that leggier illusion and don’t want to look swallowed by your jeans, you probably need to wear something with a heel (I know, I know, it can never just be easy right?) I’ve opted to wear my flares with wedges and booties with chunkier heels that are pretty comfortable and offer more support than skinny heels, plus I love the look! These are a wider-leg flare, I cannot wait to try out the bell-bottoms soon! 😍

Hope you get out there this week and rock the jeans you thought you couldn’t rock, and hope everyone has a great start to their week! ☺️

Love,

Konnor with a K
