Tuesday Talk-Hits and a Big MISS


My monthly link-up with Fancy Ashley where we invite you to join us to chit chat about anything and everything!

This week I have family coming into town for Thanksgiving, so I’m working on all the things I should have taken care of on a random week but just never got around to.  You know organizing the pantry, making sure all the closets are clean, ensuring the rooms are looking extra cozy for guests, etc.  We’re hard at work over here.  In the mean time, I thought I’d share some items I’ve ordered lately…some are BIG HITS and I have an AWFUL MISS for you to be sure to skip when you’re working on gifts this Christmas season.  

Okay, I’m sure you’ve seen this pullover ALL OVER THE INTERNET.  I got nervous I’d have to retract my “blogger” title if I didn’t have one in my closet.  😉  They’re everywhere!  I think Abercrombie is who made this pullover first {yes, and half-off right now}, but now there are dupes in every corner.  I found this one on Amazon for under $27.  And it’s fabulous!  I sized up to a medium and it fits great!  It comes in five other colors…I ordered the white/blush combo as well.  They are definitely HITS!  🙂

When these pajamas arrived I couldn’t even wait until there was better lighting the next day.  If you’re looking for a cute pair of holiday pajamas, well look no further!  Gap has hooked us up!  Right now with the code, GIFT, your entire order is 40% off.  These are cute, comfy, and perfect for the season.  I grabbed my typical sizing and they’re perfect.  If you’re coming to my house for Thanksgiving, there MIGHT be a pair of these waiting for you.  #matchymatchy  

This Madewell dress is another hit!  Now I know this won’t work in every area, but here in Texas I can make this dress work almost all year long.  It’s a pretty thin material so in the fall it’ll be absolutely perfect with heels or booties.  On this particular Sunday it was COLD, so I added a fur vest.  In the spring, it can work with wedges.  If you’re watching Real Housewives of Dallas, it reminds me a bit of Leanne’s little black dress that can be worn 175 different ways.  #exceptmaybemorelikethree  #ha

These Stella and Dot earrings were  my go-to earrings in New York.  They’re absolutely perfect for fall/winter.  And once again, would make a great gift!

A lot of you guys asked about my sweater…this mustard cardigan sweater is on sale now {and will probably be on sale Black Friday-I’ll keep you posted}!

This super-duper light retro packable jacket is a new favorite.  Long-waisted ladies…this comes in a TALL!  I ordered a, “Small Tall”, and it fit great!  This is 40% off today as well!  It also comes in one other colorway.  I love the gold, black, and white retro look.  Ebby Lee’s jacket is this one.

Unfortunately, this pullover doesn’t come in the “tall”.  I sized up to medium for a looser fit.  It comes in other colors as well, but the buffalo plaid is PERFECT for the season!  I also grabbed one for Ebby Lee and Britt.  🙂

This jacket was screaming my name.  I snagged it on sale and again-I’m sure Black Friday this one will be on sale too.  {I’ll let you know if I see it.}  Super cozy AND cute!  I ordered my regular size.

This sweater is on sale now for under $50.  I love the colors and the mock-neck.  It’s the kind of sweater some of you super-trendy girls would wear with high-waisted jeans OR if you’re like me, you’ll front tuck it into your regular jeans.  😉

ALERT!  ALERT!  DO NOT ORDER THIS SWEATER!  Well, unless you prefer wearing something thin that feels like sandpaper.  If that’s your jam, then by all means-THIS IS THE SWEATER for you!  I had such great luck with my first dupe, I thought I’d give Amazon and another try.  This one, however, fell REALLY flat!

Okay, what about you?  Have you experienced any HITS or MISSES lately?!

    Cute stuff! I love the Abercrombie mock neck sweater, but is it itchy? I am super sensitive to itchy fabric…like it has to be super soft!
