life lately (& fitting room diaries)

Here's a snapshot of my life lately.

We went to the Clemson/Carolina game (our biggest rivalry!) the Saturday after Thanksgiving. You may have seen photos on instagram, but I never posted any photos on here. Love all that orange!
 I wore my new favorite jacket from Ann Taylor with old BDG jeggings (which I'm obsessed with and can't find online anymore, but these look incredibly similar) and Target booties from last year.
 This is how Winston slept on the way home. He's hilarious.
 When we got home, Brandon and I went to cut a Christmas tree. Once we got there, we opted to just buy a pre-cut Frasier Fir for inside, but cut this little one for our porch.

You can see in daylight that I have ivory curtain panels on the left window and white panels on the other. I think I'm sticking with the ivory, but I just don't know. Ivory won the instagram debate by a long shot. The struggle is real.

I went Christmas shopping on Saturday and gosh, I don't know what happened but I somehow ended up in the fitting room trying on clothes for myself. I love, love what Marissa Webb has done for Banana Republic. Here's what I'm loving from there...

This leather cardigan is not online. Boo!! Sorry, guys. But this one is very similar. Worn over this top (xs).

Same top with this skirt (0).

 Black crop top (that wasn't so cropped after all) with these suede pants (4).

I love this black cropped pullover (s) with this long-sleeved tissue tee (s) underneath. Paired them with these ankle pants (2).

The coziest sweater (s).

Love this lace top (xs).

Also loving this waffle turtleneck tunic in black (s) and this leather stud bracelet. So many good things!
