Comfy Casual

Sweater: J.Crew (sold out, similar, similar) | Pant's: J.Crew | Scarf: Gap (old, similar)| Shoes: Keds | Bag: Lululemon (old) | Sunnies: Prada

Hello and Happy Friday!  I can't believe Thanksgiving is only a week away!  I am really excited because I will be hosting Thanksgiving this year.  I feel like I have so much stuff to do around the house before then!  I also need to get my menu together.  I was on Pinterest all morning searching for recipe ideas.  I still don't know what I am going to make!  What are some of your favorite side dishes to make for Thanksgiving?

Anyways, on to today's look!  This outfit is my go-to look right now! There is seriously nothing comfier than an oversized sweater and leggings.  I have been living in my favorite pixie pants from J.Crew.  I have had them for over 3 years and I think it may be time to invest in a second pair.  Another thing I have been wearing on repeat are these sneaker boots from Keds.  Did you wear Keds as a child?  I still remember wearing these white sneakers to school every day.  I even had them in hot pink!  Haha.  I could be wrong, but I think Keds are making a comeback y'all!

Holiday Gift Guide - Stocking Stuffers

Thursday, November 20, 2014

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

I absolutely love stocking stuffers! Opening my stocking is one of my favorite things to do Christmas morning because Santa typically fills it with adorable tiny treasures (and lots of candy!).  I've rounded up some of my favorite stocking stuffers for this holiday season.

I am curious, when do you open your stocking?  Before or after opening all your gifts?

P.S.  If you haven't noticed already, I have changed my blog name from Simple Swan to Simply Mars.  I will explain why I did this in a later post.  I'm still trying to change the name on all my social media accounts, email, etc but it is a lot more difficult than I expected!  I also noticed my new blog posts are not showing up on my Blogger feed.  Anyone know how to fix this?

Hope you have great day!

Green Dress

Dress: Asos (on sale!, runs small) | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Earrings and Necklace: Bip & Bop c/o | Lips: Rebel by MAC

The holiday season is upon us, and with it comes plenty of gatherings, parties, and celebratory events.  I typically wait until the last minute to search for holiday outfits, but this year I started shopping early because all the cute stuff sells out so quickly in my size!  I saw this dress on asos.com and immediately fell in love with the color.  It is currently on sale for $35 which I think is a steal!

Hope you are having a great week so far!

Holiday Gift Guide - For The Little One

I started Christmas shopping early this year and I can't believe I am almost finished!  I have 6 nieces and 2 nephews so I have a lot to buy for!  I did most of my shopping at Nordstrom because they have a great selection of toys for both boys and girls.  They also offer free shipping and returns which I think is wonderful.

Have you started Christmas shopping yet?  There are only 43 days until Christmas!

Dress: LOFT | Boots: Tory Burch (last year, similar) | Handbag: YSL | Necklace: Moon and Lola | Watch: Michele | Earrings: Kate Spade | Lipstick: Bobbi Brown (Pink Mauve)

Hey ladies!  I'm sharing another look with you all today that I absolutely love.  I purchased this dress at LOFT for 40% off and I have to say, this is by far my favorite piece of clothing for fall.  I have already worn it multiple times and I will probably take this dress with me on my upcoming trip to NYC.  I think it would be cute paired with black tights, black riding boots, and my favorite black coat.

Hope you all have a great day!
