Happy Friday Friends! Sorry for the late post! We got home very late last night, and I was exhausted! Anyhow, it’s almost become a tradition for me to be wearing some black for Black Friday! :) I had to show y’all this fun cold shoulder ruffle lace top (can you guess where it’s from?!) and my new favorite button-front jeans from Veronica Beard!

I wore this outfit for a Girls’ Night Out (possibly to celebrate my birthday last month but my memory is the pits)! Of course, the girls were surprised when I told them the lace top was from Target, aka Tarjay, one of my fave places. My friends are always giving me a hard time because they don’t understand the dichotomy of my wardrobe – it’s Target and something like Isabel Marant or Valentino. WTH!! LOL! Anyhow, I like so many different things, and they don’t always have to be a designer brand. That’s the beauty of fashion. It’s FUN! BTW, that’s part of my Manifesto here.

Next, you MUST know about these Veronica Beard jeans. The Veronicas recently launched their jeans collection this Fall, and they are so good! I discovered them when Cathy, Heather, and I were hosting a Veronica Beard event at The Shak. OMG, this pair is amazing. I say this because they ABSOLUTELY keep their shape (even after bending, twisting, crawling, etc. with the kids) and suck me in like I don’t have a muffin top! Haha! I did try the other styles (like the regular skinnies and cropped tuxedo jeans) but like this one the most because of the button-front detail, high-riseΒ waist, and raw hem.

THE STYLE Rx: Take a cue from history and grab a pair of button-front jeans. They are a seasonless staple with added chic factor and sophistication.

What is your favorite pair of jeans? And what is your go-to black piece?

Hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving or Thursday (if you don’t celebrate)! We were at my friend’s family farm for the most memorable Thanksgiving ever! Besides getting to be with my best friends from middle school/high school and their family, my favorite part was the blessing of the food. We each had to share what we were thankful for this season. I want to copy that tradition!

Okay Shopping Loving Friends, here’s the part about sales! As usual, there are some major sales going on today! I’ll probably shop tonight after the kids are asleep! Hope you get to take advantage! Here are FIVE of my favorite retailers:

Rxoxo, Sam

    What a great lace top Sam! :) I’d love a wardrobe like yours, I think mixing high and low is definitely the way to go – it’s nice to have splurge worthy pieces in your wardrobe alongside the more affordable ones I think! :)

    Glad you had a lovely thanksgiving – I had the day off on Thursday to take baby boy to the hospital for some tests and when it was done I dropped him off at his grandmothers with his big brother and I went shopping – haha! Not in the sales, but just running around the stores trying to get everything I needed. Had such a hard time finding nice wrapping paper – I had an idea in my head of what I wanted and I feel like I traversed the entire shopping centre trying to find it, ha! Enjoy your sale shopping this weekend! I spent quite a bit on Thursday so I have to be good and not shop now!

      Hi Mica, hope Baby Boy is doing okay. You are such a good mum, and I’m glad that you took some time to get things done (even if it was for a specific wrapping paper)! I’m sure they enjoyed time with grandmother!

      • Mica says:

        Thanks Sam – they really did! :) I felt accomplished after the trip but I’ve just found out that someone has requested a BLUE police car from Santa, not a white one, so there may be a last minute scrabble to make sure Santa locates a blue one in time. The elves don’t seem to be making any ;)
