I love the holiday season, with one exception… it just flies by so quickly.
Of course, it doesn’t help matters when the local radio station decided to go to an ALL Christmas format in the middle of November (only to get such backlash that they went back to their normal format 3 days later!) I’m a firm believer in as much as I love me some Christmas decorations and twinkly lights, I do NOT unpack them until after Thanksgiving!
However once Black Friday comes around, it’s a free-for-all in Christmas décor all up in the Joules house! And don’t even get me started on my love for Christmas music…
So, before I break out my red and green, let’s take a look back at my November favorite outfits! If you see something you like, I’ve made it easy for you to steal my style with links for each item, as well as some similar styles at different price points. If you want to check out previous My Style posts, you can find them here.
Look #1: Comfy Casual
When I share my outfits on Instagram, I usually just show my workday looks. However, this is what I typically look like when I’m dressed on weekends, or when I work from home all day and then throw clothes on to do kid pick-up. I love this Hustlin Mama t-shirt from Mulberry press and I wear it all the time (I’m wearing a unisex size large).
The flowy cardi that I’m wearing is the Market & Spruce Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan from Stitch Fix (this one from last year) If you randomly knocked on my door on a day that I was home, chances are that I would be wearing this. I wear it ALL THE TIME because it is super comfortable and awfully cute too. Market & Spruce is a Stitch Fix brand, so as much as I’d like to tell you where to buy it… you’d have to ask for them to send it to you in a Fix (if you do, use my referral code and I’ll do a happy dance!) If you want to try one that is similar, check out the Airport Cardigan from Modcloth which has a ton of great reviews and comes in five different colors!
I love Kut from the Kloth jeans and these are called the Toothpick Skinny style. I picked them up at Nordstrom Rack last year. These Jennifer Ultra Skinny jeans look quite similar and are less than $40. If you want to check out the exact pair I have, I found them here on Amazon with free shipping: KUT from the Kloth Women’s Mia Toothpick Skinny Jean.
I talked about these boots in my November Stitch Fix review and I wear them almost every single day that I’m not at work (and some days that I work too…). They are from Clarks and called the Valora Sky in Dark Brown Leather. They are super comfortable, really awesome looking and are even on sale! You’ll be seeing A LOT more pictures of me wearing these this winter.
Look #2: Sassy Suit Combo
The Blouse & Blazer
When I have to wear a suit, I try really hard to keep it from being super boring and stuffy. So when I had to dress up for work a couple weeks ago I decided to try mixing my elephant print blouse (here’s a similar one at Modcloth) with a fun grid blazer that I recently picked up at Target for $34.99! I bought myself the black and white plaid version, but I also really like the Xavier Navy design too.
These are the perfect black shoes that I posted about last month and they are my absolute favorite flats! They literally needed no breaking in time at all and I’ve been wearing them to work almost nonstop since I bought them. The best part is that they are $50! They are called the 14th & Union Alexis Flat and I have them in Black Snake.
Look #3: A Stretchy Outfit for Eating
There is nothing worse than going to a big holiday dinner and being super uncomfortable the entire time you’re eating. Well, bring on the oversized sweater AND seconds, because I’m pretty much wearing this outfit all winter long. This is the Renee C Pullover top from my September Stitch Fix, but I found a similar version at Banana Republic in cotton and cashmere. This long sleeved knit tunic sweater from Old Navy has a similar oversized shape too. I also like the look of stealing an oversized man’s v-neck sweater and have one that is almost identical to this one that I stole from Travis and “accidentally” shrunk
I wear these all the time and have talked about them quite often. These are the Democracy Ab Solution Booty Lift Jeggings and they are totally the bees knees. If you have a Nordstrom Rack by you, I’ve noticed that they’ve been stocked up the last few times I’ve visited. You can also find limited sizes here: in black and in a super dark blue. They also still have them on Amazon here: Democracy Women’s AB Solution and Booty Lift Technology Jegging.
Yup, still wearing my Clarks!
I love this necklace and have worn it almost nonstop since I scored it at Anthropologie on super clearance from $80 marked down to $20. I actually highly recommend stalking the Anthro clearance section, because I’ve gotten some really cool jewelry there. I did a quick check of their sale section online and found this beautiful pendant marked down from $68 to $39 and this pendant marked down from $58 to $29.
