Sale Shopping Sunday {Under $25!}

Well hey there! 
With all of these great sales going on I thought I would round up some of my favorite pieces that are under $25. Yes, under twenty-five doll hairs. With such great deals, you can pick things up for yourself, your sister, your friend, or one for each of you! Remember when it was cool to #twin in middle school? ;) I've made it easy as pie {anyone else still have pie on their mind? ...Yum!} to shop- all you have to do is click on the item to be directed to the right page!


Hope you lovely ladies enjoy your Sunday! Cyber Monday deals will be here tomorrow so get your clickers ready!

Gold & Sequins








  


Target Sweater {less than $14!}
Steve Madden Leopard Pumps {similar}
Kate Spade Bow Bag {love this one}

Gold & Sequins? SOLD. I really can't imagine a better combo for the holiday season! 
I plan on wearing these lots of different times throughout the Christmas season. They are basically leggings with sparkle added so they are stretchy & comfortable {a definite must with lots of food around}! I plan on re-wearing them with an oversized turtleneck sweater, a Piko tunic, or under a LBD. Lots of stores & boutiques have them in stock in various lengths & colors so make sure to snap up a pair before the selections are more limited!

I hope you girls had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families! It was so nice to catch up with family & take things slow for the day. Later, I got out & did some Black Friday shopping and pretty much completed all of my Christmas shopping. There were certainly some great deals to find! I am hoping that Cyber Monday will have deals on the last minute things I want, to be 100% done. I will be sharing my favorite sales as they pop up... So stay tuned! 

Have a lovely weekend pretties!

Sale Shopping


Hey there ladies! 
It's the biggest shopping event of the year and I am rounding up my favorite sales! I've included the sales of stores that I frequently shop & the brands you will find most often on this blog. If I come across more throughout the day, I will make sure to add them to the list. It seems that many retailers are doing the same online deals as in-store deals. I plan on stopping by a few stores tonight but will mostly stick to the online business of deal-scoring. Are you braving the madness?

The Ups & Downs











Light Blonde Tee {God is Greater than the Highs & Lows} c/o
American Eagle skinnies {similar}
Mindy Mae's Market Bracelets 1, 2*
*= Save 10% with code 'kelsslayt'

First of all, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! I hope you are all stuffing yourselves silly and enjoying time with family! We will be making the rounds today with different sides of the family, eating, chatting, and playing games. There is nothing I love more than a good card game over homemade pumpkin pie :)

Now before you join the madness known as Black Friday tonight, I would encourage you to pop in to my Instagram! I will be part of a fabulous giveaway where The Light Blonde & I {fitting duo huh?} will be giving away one of these great tees. Her entire shop {check it out here} is full of incredibly inspiring pieces with my favorite messages. The particular G > ^ v tee that we are giving away represents "God is Greater than the Highs and Lows." I absolutely love this concept & my husband thought it was pretty clever too. I cannot tell you how many times I lose sight of what is real, what is important, and what life is all about. This tee, along with the others in her shop, bring it all back to reality. This is the time of year where it becomes so easy to get caught up in the hype of the holidays & shopping that we easily forget what it really is all about. 

Not only are these comfy tees great for layering under your favorite flannels or pairing with floppy hats, but they also make great, meaningful gifts. If you love this shirt as much as I do, check Instagram this evening for your chance to win one {there may even be a discount code available too}!

Have a lovely one girls! XOX

Hey gals!
I don't know about you, but my weekend was absolute. total. insanity. So many things going on & we aren't even to the heart of holiday season! Whew. 
I've received a few comments asking where to get things I've posted on Instagram lately so I thought I would share easy, shoppable links with you on this beautiful Monday morning :) I can't be the only one who needs a big dose of retail therapy to get through Mondays??!

Confessional Friday

Well hey there gals! What a cold & dreary week it has been... Let's perk it up & get this Friday going so we can party for the weekend!

1. I confess that due to the amount of snow Oklahoma received last weekend, I sadly had to cancel the LOFT party I was hosting. Lucky for you, I have rescheduled it for this Sunday at 7pm! Come joint me at the Loft store inside Penn Square Mall for a fun little event. You can expect drinks, desserts, & a sale. When I say sale, I mean 40% off the entire store kinda sale :) You won't want to miss it!! I will be wearing this skirt and hopefully one of these options:
2. I confess that I. WANT. THESE. glitter Keds!!!

3. I confess that I had the time of my life at the Marine Corps Birthday Ball last Friday night. There is nothing better than watching my handsome husband suit up in his Dress Blues and follow the tradition of celebrating so many brave young men & women. I rented this fabulous Badgley Mischka dress from Rent The Runway. You can currently save $25 off your first rental! I had such a smooth experience that I am also planning on grabbing a dress or two for the holiday parties I have in December.






4. I confess that I am conflicted on decorating for Christmas. It is such a crazy time of year and it takes a lot of work to get it all together! Since our families are in Missouri, we usually spend the weeks surrounding the 25th there {& not at home}. Knowing that we won't be here to celebrate & enjoy the decor is making me kiiiiinda want to skip it this year. Unless someone wants to volunteer to do it for me? Yayy for you! ;) 

5. I confess that my head is spinning from the emails about sales this week! It seems that all of my favorite stores are running great deals this weekend! The ones I am looking forward to most? Gap will be 50% off the entire store all weekend & Old Navy will be 50% off the entire store Saturday. I mean... My shopping cart is already full so why not? ;)


Come link up with Leslie & share your confessions from this cold week!

Flare & Floppy




Top: SheInside / Skinnies: American Eagle similar option / Leopard Booties: Sole Society / Floppy Hat: Target / Necklace: Emmajoy {save 20% with code 'kelsslayt20'} / Envelope Clutch: Target similar here

Between the printed booties, floppy hat, & turquoise necklace, this look has several components that I just looooove. 

If you haven't already picked up on my love for SheInside, let me just make it clear here. It is the best place to find very affordable clothing that hits all the latest trends! I scored this black flared top for $17 and that was one of the higher priced tops I was looking at. Several people have expressed hesitancy about ordering from SheInside but I personally have never had any issues. As long as you carefully check the sizing, I would encourage you to jump on those pieces you are eyeballing! 

This week is a stressful one! I am trying to prep my cheer team for our first competition this weekend, finalize our Thanksgiving meals & plans, and wrap up my Christmas shopping. I went to the mall last weekend & the insanity almost instantly drove me right back out the door. The coming weeks will only get crazier & I need to finish up gift buying before I just give up! Hopefully Cyber Monday will have some great deals I can score :)
