The $40 Black Sweater Dress You MUST Have This Winter!









SWEATER DRESS: BP (under $40 - a must have!) | FAUX FUR VEST: old (almost identical HERE) | LEGGINGS: Zella (*must haves*) | BOOTIES: old (similar HERE & HERE) | BEANIE: BCBG | RING: David Yurman | WATCH: Michele | HANDBAG: Chanel (Classic in Maxi) (dupe HERE

Okay, guys! This dress is everything. I ordered it from Nordstrom for our trip to Ohio (to wear to John’s 10 year school reunion!) thinking it would be great for my growing bump, but holy cow! I am going to be living in it this winter - it is flattering and crazy soft & comfortable! I thought I’d share full outfit photo because so many of my girlfriends have wanted to order it. My mom and sis were even fighting over who was going to wear it in NY this weekend. Size wise - it is pretty TTS.. maybe a little big. It’s definilty not body con or short, that’s for sure. It’s a sweater dress that can be worn to work and then to dinner at night!

My sister and mom came to Tulsa the night before we left for NYC to go through my closet and take clothes to wear. My sister was in my closet and asked “Emily! what is this BP brand and where do I get it? I love everything!” And I was relieved to tell her it was Nordstrom and it is all very affordable yet good quality. She sometimes gives me the side eye because I sometimes... (eek) have expensive taste! It’s more of a running joke. Anyway, she’s sold on the Nordstrom BP line now! 

I also got the green version of this dress while in Columbus btw - it’s a dark green color! It looks cute w/riding boots! 

Any who, I’m in the air flying from NY to Tulsa! My mom and sis are sleeping next to me! We loved NYC - it was my mom & John’s first time there so it was fun seeing their reactions to it. My mom is obsessed and is already planning another trip!

Hope you all had a fun weekend!! <3

Also - the winner of the monogram necklace giveaway never e-mailed me! I selected a new winner so e-mail me if it is you! (emilysweetestthing@gmail.com)

Thanks to Nordstrom for sponsoring today’s post.

I thought I’d share photos of our formal living area with the whimsical, fun Christmas tree. Last year was our first Christmas to ever have a tree - thanks to med school/residency moving so I went all out. I wanted a really funky, different tree. I opted for a flocked tree because I love how the colors really pop on it. My sister is a master tree decorator - seriously so good. We are working on a little video to share of how she does all of it! Basically, she lets me pick out my colors and ‘theme’ and then she just puts it all on the tree and it looks incredible. I’ve been getting lots of questions regarding the other tree in our living room - it is a Burberry theme and it is super classic and very traditional. John really likes that tree a lot - he likes Burberry though, lol. I’ll share photos of that room separately along with the video. We shot this super fast yesterday bc John had a little lunch break so he ran home and took these. The lighting isn’t the best, but hopefully you’ll still get the idea. I’ve had so many requests for this posts and I didn’t want to make you all wait too long.

SO.. My sister’s big thing with ribbon is making sure you splurge on ribbon! I bought all Hobby Lobby ribbon last year, not knowing, and she tossed it. (lol). It’s like fashion really - you  can wear a completely F21 outfit but carry a designer handbag and it totally changes the look and brings it up a notch. The nicer the ribbon, the better it holds up and looks on the tree. Utilizing ribbon this way is so different and fun and really elevates the look. The store where I buy all of my ribbon is in Northwest Arkansas and I think it costs about $40 a roll. This white flocked Christmas tree is from a store in Tulsa called At Home and it is 7.5 feet tall. We probably used 7-8 rolls of ribbon for this tree, but honestly, next year I will add more & change it out bc it didn’t look as ‘neat’ this year. I’m hoping to catch it on sale at the end of the month. My mom had to iron the ribbon this year because it got wrinkled in storage. Many of my statement ornaments are also from the store in NWA and other random decor are from there also. We got every October to get what I want before the good stuff sells out. *Edited- the little silver glittery deer are from WALMART! ($10)... the darker, larger silver one was from the store in Arkansas and it was $40!

I will make sure and link everything that can be ordered online at the end but for now I’ll quickly tell you all where the other details are from. The tree skirt is from Dillards (last year) and the stockings were custom made from a store in OKC. I actually snapcchatted that I couldn’t find striped stockings and the company reached out and said they can do custom ones! I just sent them a photo of the shape that I like and told them I wanted b&w horizontal stripes. They turned out perfect!

The wrapping paper was all random and last minute, lol. I’ve gotten them from Target, Home Goods, At Home, etc. The ribbon w/the deer on it is from Hobby Lobby. 

FLOOR MIRROR (25% off)
CHANDELIER (sold out - similar here) (I bought this before we even closed on the house - I’ve always wanted it but John says it looks like a a science project!)

Chilly Days...







 SWEATER: BP | SCARF: ILYCouture c/o | DENIM: AG Jeans | HANDBAG: Louis Vuitton (used HEREsimilar HERE) | PUMPS: Manolo Blahnik (similar here) | SUNGLASSES: Celine (similar here) | LIPS: Spice’ + ‘Blankety’ + Plumping Gloss

My family came in for an early Thanksgiving last weekend - since John and I were going to Ohio. The weather was finally starting to get cold so I got to wear this cute fringe scarf! Oh and that camel sweater... just a warning - it goes with everything and you will want to wear it all the time! I find myself constantly throwing it on because the color goes with blacks, browns, etc. It has a cute shape, so you automatically look polished!

Keeping it short today because my house is a wreck (travel probs) and I gotta get to work on Christmas decorations at our house. Just realized yesterday that John hung the weaths on the front door UPSIDE DOWN! Any who, got lots of work to do... my mom and sis are coming to down tonight!

PS. Christmas tree pix coming soon - I had a hard time finding skirts!!!

Our 2016 Christmas Card (20% Off Today!)







HOLIDAY CARDS: Minted c/o (20% off today!) | RED SWEATER: BP (only $36) | PLAID PUMPS: Lauren Lorraine  | MONOGRAM: Love Always | WATCH: Michele

I am usually late on Christmas cards, but this year it was much easier / less hassle since I ordered with Minted (I’ll go into that in a second.) When we got back from Paris, I decided to use THESE photos for our Christmas cards. And then, I got to thinking that was rude to leave Fitz out (I’m crazy!) so I decided to split them up this year! I’m using THESE photos as Christmas cards too and I’ll do half and half. :) I was laughing out loud yesterday because I sat on the ground in our living room to put the stamps on these envelopes and Fitz would come over and lay across them! It was almost like he was saying he didn’t approve of the card!

On a different note, I loved ordering with Minted for a few reasons... First of all, I find it kind of overwhelming to order Christmas cards each year. It is a little intimidating going through all the designs, selecting your photos, font, etc. On Minted it was super easy because you can just select ‘Holiday Cards’ and then you filter what you want either by landscape/portrait/square, price point, font, etc. It basically narrows down your options so it is less intimidating. I wanted a gold foil text on ours so it was easy to narrow it down to this one! I think I spent under 10 minutes (I can be indecisive so thats a big deal.) Anyway, I also love that you can upload your address spreadsheet and it prints your addresses on your envelopes for FREE! I almost died when I saw this. I started a spreadsheet for our wedding years ago and I still use it so it was amazing just adding that in and our envelopes coming addressed. Also,  you can order your stamps from Minted as well and add a photo or design. We just stuck with a “G” for ours but maybe next year the babe will be on the stamp. :) Okay, I’ll try to wrap this up - I am really just a huge fan of Minted!

Also! They are still running their Cyber Monday sale today so the site is 20% off - definitely don’t want to miss that!

Thanks to Minted for sponsoring todays post.

What’s In My Cyber Monday Shopping Cart?! (Pregnancy Items, too!)

this sweater is 50% off here!

 Happy Cyber Monday, everyone!

I thought I’d quickly round up what sales I am taking advantage of today. The past 4 posts have been all about the best sales currently happening but I wanted to share with you what I actually purchased! Some of it I ordered over the weekend, and am SO annoyed because the sales are BETTER today! Anywho, here we go..


1. TORY BURCH (30% Off Sitewide) 
I love this IVY TOTE because A.) the gorgeous cognac color goes with everything & can be worn year round & B.) I love the shape and functional size. I could fit my laptop inside, yet it doesn’t look like a ‘work’ tote. It can be dressed up or down.

2. BATH & BODY WORKS (25% Off Your Purchase)
It’s no secret I’m a B&BW Candle Queen. They are my favorite! My entire house will smell amazing by just lighting a couple of them. Right now, I am burning “Evergreen” which makes your home smell like a live Christmas tree! The others I really like are Tis The Season, Twisted Peppermint, Salted Caramel, & Vanilla Snowflake. But Evergreen is my favorite. The candles are $12.50 right now - and then 25% off your purchase. (I placed my order on Friday so I missed the 25% off sale, errr!!)

3. RAY-BAN AVIATORS (30% Off) (Part of the huge NORDSTROM sale - more HERE)
I am a huge aviator fan - I have them in SO many colors and tend to wear them ALL the time. I love that they are super causal and sporty, but also look great dressed up.

4. TOTE SAVVY (30% OFF!)
Like woah....... I got so excited when I saw this! You guys know I carry my LV Neverfulls ALL the time. I travel with them constantly and I use them day to day as well. I ordered a real diaper bag this weekend, but I don’t like the idea of only having one designated diaper bag. With this Tote Savvy deal, I have the interior of a normal diaper bag that I can insert into any of my Neverfulls. That way I’ll be able to keep everything organized and neat.

I have an addition. I wear Ugg slippers non stop around the house and so does my dad & John. This year, John’s dad asked for a pair for Christmas! Its such an easy gift idea because I don’t know anyone who does not love a super soft pair of house shoes!

6. LOVE ALWAYS MONOGRAM (30% off SITEWIDE)
The #1 sale question I get year round is “hey emily, do you know when Love Always will have a sale on their monograms?” and they actually don’t run a ton of sales. Today’s sale is the BEST I’ve ever seen - you can get your monogram (or anything on the site) 30% off! John and I both ordered them for our moms! (*I wear the 4xl w/a 16” chain!)

7. BAUBLEBAR (30% Off)
I love the fun earrings on the BaubleBar site! I have SO many of their earrings! I just got on the pre-order list for the black and white striped drops above!!

8. BEACHWAVER ($199.. usually $250)
I saw a popular YouTuber using this the other day and her hair looked like a celebrity’s! I immediately went to check them out and watched tutorials on how to use it. I am so fascinated and can’t wait to give it a try.

9. See By Chloe Snow Shoes (from the SHOPBOP sale up t0 25% off.. more picks HERE)
I have been wanting some snow shoes that had a wedge on them! I have tried different kinds without the wedge and I just don’t love wearing flats, lol! I am obsessed w/these! Because they have a wedge they can be styled dressed up or down!

I literally live in booties from September - March! I like to invest in a few good pair that will match a lot of my wardrobe. I love these because the heel is 3.5” which is my favorite heel height AND the taupe color will go w/SO much of my closet! I am ordering these today!

11. AG MATERNITY JEANS (From Pea in the Pod’s 30% off SITEWIDE sale!)
Hellooooo maternity clothing is not cheap! And not going to sugar coat it, most of it is not cute! I was so happy to find Pea in the Pod and see that they carry designer brands and they are also running 30% off site wide. I have every pair of AG jean that comes in an ankle skinny style so I almost died when I realized they have ALL of my favorite styles in maternity style. Right now, I am still wearing my regular AG jeans but I know that any morning I could wake up and need them. I ordered a few AG jeans and then some yoga pants and some work out clothing.

12. AG JEANS (from the SHOPBOP sale up to 25% off.. more picks HERE)
I talk about these all the time, totally a broken record. But seriously, the best jeans ever! Just always want to give a heads up when they go on sale.
