It is finally the last day of school before Christmas break. I swear I thought this day would never come! I cannot wait to sleep in, watch TV, eat myself silly, sleep in, shop,  hang out with family, play cards, & sleep in :)

You know those pieces in your closet that you never know what to pair with? Well let me introduce the most simple solution. Probably so simple you already know. Chambray. I can literally put {one of} mine on with absolutely anything in my closet & call it a day. That might be why you see one in every other Instagram picture I post! ha! So do yourself a favor & join the chambray bandwagon
Ok? Now proceed with enjoying your Friday :)

Joy
I couldn't buy this shirt fast enough when I saw it on J.Crew Factory's site. This word holds such a dear meaning to my heart. This is a season of joy. We have so much to be joyful about. 
My "Gran" absolutely loved Christmas. Our family continues the celebrations & traditions that she started. My Gran's name was Joy. This will be the 5th Christmas we celebrate without her. While I'd love nothing more than to have her here again, I know that when I see the word "Joy" on everything this time of year- ornaments, decor, shirts, etc.- it's just a reminder that she is here watching! 
So I will continue to surround myself with all things Joy-ful & smile every time I see a lovely reminder to celebrate this season. 

Michael {MZ Photography} found a new parking garage in downtown OKC & we were able to get some great night shots! I love how they turned out! If you are in the area and need pictures, please check him out :)

Jane Favorites

Jane.com is one of my favorite places to find fun gifts, decor, and clothes. They have a constantly revolving selection of new things to see! All items are always heavily discounted so I feel like I am getting a great deal :) 

I decided to put together a few of my favorite things you can find on Jane right now. You will have to move fast though, everything has limited stock & is only available for a few days! So many great stocking stuffers & last minute gifts too! {No this is not a sponsored post, I really just love Jane that much!}

Comfort



American Eagle Skinnies {love these}
*{select 'kelsslayt' at checkout to receive a free gift!}

I'm gonna level with you... This is the kind of look I usually prefer. My weekends typically consist of hoodies & jeans. I'll take comfort over fancy almost any day. After spending my entire Saturday at basketball games, I was quite content to spend the rest of the weekend as comfy as possible!

I hope you girls had a great weekend! I've got five days until my Christmas break officially kicks off :)

Francesca's is the ultimate boutique. They have all the latest trends, fun accessories, & the perfect gifts. You can pick up a new outfit & gifts for your friends, all in one stop. They have several locations here in OKC & I always make sure to browse whichever store I am near!

This past Thursday, Francesca's had their friends & family event. They had treats {macaroons- yum!} to enjoy while shopping the entire store at 25% off! I had so much fun looking for new pieces for myself & looking through their extensive gift section.

I absolutely loved this beaded clutch!
So many stunning jewels to choose from!
Francesca's has so many tops & dresses ideal for holiday & New Years parties!


The embroidery detail on this dress was stunning!
My favorite sign :)
The perfect catch-all for your favorite jewels!

Have a great Saturday girls!

Confessional Friday

Whew. We made it! It's Friday & we are one week away from Christmas break folks! Let's celebrate with some confessing :)

1. I confess that J.Crew Factory, Old Navy, Gap, Loft & Forever 21 have had some killer sales lately. It's not just Black Friday & Cyber Monday madness anymore! Some of my favorite pieces {that I wear all the time} like this jeweled sweater, this herringbone vest + puffer vest & this chambray have been on serious sale this week.

2. I confess that the cheer coach life can be rough. Ok, not really but three nights of basketball, a night of community service & a night with a Christmas party {on top of practices after school} all in one week leaves little time for anything else. It's a good thing I love those girls ;)

3. I confess that I am so uber proud of my husband. He had a few stressful finals this week but he has worked his butt off & has been so successful. He was even so proud of himself that he bought himself a reward. After lots of tough thinking & research, he settled on this. Oi.


4. I confess that I had a blast last night at the Francesca's Friends & Family event! The entire store was 25% off & they had treats + drinks to enjoy while browsing for your favorite pieces! Come back tomorrow for pictures & details from the event :)

5. I confess that I may have had a little too much fun browsing for sequin dresses this week. After Monday's post with a black sequin number, I have had several friends contact me looking for their own version! I have found so many options at such stellar prices, I just had to share! Tis' the season!


Well I guess it's time to get on with the day! Go visit Leslie & join the baby watch! Her pretty baby girl should be here any day now :)

Decor Under $50

I don't know if it's all the buying I have been doing for Christmas presents or putting up the decor for the holidays, but I am itching to do a little re-decorating in parts of my house! It's been a while since I've gone crazy buying home decor & fun pieces to spruce up a room so the new year seems like the perfect time to do so! {right, babe?} ;) These pieces are all under $50 too! Clearly I'm on a gold kick along with the rest of the world. #guilty. 
Happy Thursday girls!


Festive Dressing & Emmajoy


   

  
  

I love a good holiday party. However, I don't like to go buy a whole new wardrobe for holiday parties. {Really it's only my bank account that doesn't love that idea} Instead of going crazy, buying lots of new outfits during this time of year, I like to buy one fun dress {cheap... because who can actually re-wear a sequin dress through the whole year?} & a few festive accessories. & $10 polka dot tights are right up my "festive" alley! Paired with a sparkle collar sweater & burgundy booties, I think this is perfect for a night celebrating this wonderful time of year!

Wednesday's can be rough... I know I am dragging but realize I am only half way through the week. Well, today is your lucky Wednesday! I am partnering up with Emmajoy to bring you lots of holiday cheer! If you have't shopped them before, they offer lots of jewelry & accessories at super affordable prices. {You can find them running specials and discounts on their Instagram occasionally too!} Well now you can get even more! At checkout you will find a box asking how you found them... Select the 'kelsslayt' option and you will get a free gift at checkout! That means you get lots of fab new goodies & a bonus on top for letting them know I sent ya :)  I can't wait to see what pretties you score!

Hope that makes your Wednesday just a little sweeter :)
