style of sam, coat season, weekend sale roundup

Just wanted to do a quick round-up of sales going on this weekend!   It’s Coat Season {at least it will be soon in Texas} so I took advantage of the Saks sales and got this gorge camel coat!  This J.Crew cocoon coat was close in the running too.   Hooray, another item for the FIVE PIECE FRENCH WARDROBE!

I’m stocking up on clothing for Little M at the Gap and Old Navy sales.  Their toddler section is ADORABLE!  I’ve been tempted to get an Old Navy graphic tee for myself, especially this HOLY CHIC one but I’m holding out for the Dream, Believe, Achieve tee by Sincerely Jules.

For winter inspiration, you MUST check out Club Monaco and take a peek at their Winter Campaign and their COATS!  It’s fab how they styled a chunky sweater as a scarf!!  And I’m loving their curated jewely pieces like this open front ring and oversized pearl cocktail ring.

I have a pretty unhealthy obsession with these Kate Spade handbags – the love book clutch, the toyko cat minaudiere, and this take-out box!  And these earmuffs are so “Blaire Waldorf” - I LUUUVVVV!!!  Would be a great Christmas present for a girly girl!  Just sayin’!

So I’m finally showing y’all the bottom half of this amazing suit FROM GRANDMA.  I wore the fabulously puffed sleeve top HERE with some boyfriend jeans.  It was #whatIwore to the Belk Ladies Roundtable Fashion Panel discussion in August.  In case you didn’t know, I LOVE vintage things… clothing, furniture, anything!

The Style Rx:  The secret to wearing something vintage is pairing it with a modern piece!

So this pencil was meant to be worn with my leather crop top {currently on SALE}!  If you aren’t comfortable with a crop top, then you could wear it over a white button down shirt as shown here.  A bold red bag was a perfect pop of color.  The skirt would be fantastic with a bright pink top or even a graphic tee too!

Next week, I will be doing a true tribute post to Grandma with a collective of past FROM GRANDMA WITH LOVE outfits.  Stay tuned… Pssst.  On MONDAY, there’s going to be a FAB.U.LOUS little thang happening over here!  

Rxoxo, sam

For those of you that have just tuned in, this fab collab is exactly how it sounds… a chic chick in her 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s shows you how to style the same item in their own way. I’m working with some of my FAVORITE gals in Dallas!!

This is NO ORDINARY post!  Our Cathy is the founder of She Reigns, a company that makes the MOST FABULOUS rain coats.  I have a raincoat and it’s very-efficient-at-keeping-me-dry-but-not-so-cute!  I’ll stop there.  Besides being an amazing blogger {obviously}, Cathy is also a breast cancer survivor of triple negative breast cancer.  And THIS MONTH, she is giving 25% of all sales to the TNBC Foundation AND there is a 25% off sale on all coats (except the sale coats) for the month of October with code TNBC1014.

What is TNBC?  Just a few facts to know…

The subtypes of breast cancer are generally diagnosed based on the presence or lack of three receptors known to fuel most breast cancers. Those are estrogen, progesterone, and HER2.  Triple Negative is negative of those receptors…hence the name, triple negative.  Depending on stage, TNBC can be very aggressive, and more likely to recur than other breast cancers.  The good news, is that it usually responds well to chemo.

It used to be seen in mostly young black women. Not anymore!!!  Cathy was on the older side of developing it.  Most women are younger, even in their 20′s and 30′s.  She thinks it has to be environmental!

This is a great opportunity to have a super chic raincoat AND donate to the cause.  If anything, please remember to do your monthly breast exams.  I know that I am guilty and haven’t done them in a long time.  Just because a mammogram isn’t recommended until the 40s doesn’t mean you can’t develop it.  Knowledge is Power!!!!

Rxoxo, sam
