Instagram Roundup

Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is off to a great start! Yay for short weeks that end with lots of delicious food and shopping! I am planning to do all of my Christmas shopping online this weekend. My holiday shopping is actually a whole lot simpler this year since our gift to each other is our trip to Disney! I have been shifting gift giving towards experiences with my children because enjoying places as a family is just way better than tripping over toys any day for me! 

Today, I'm rounding up outfits from Instagram last week. I have been incorporating quite a few pieces from last year's winter wardrobe. I am loving adding back in cozy sweaters and boots!

Hey y'all! Today, I'm so excited to share with y'all again an eyewear company that makes a difference, one pair of glasses at a time. DIFF Eyewear donates a pair of reading glasses to a person in need for every pair of sunglasses they sell. They partner with several organizations to make this happen, including Eyes on Africa, Restoring Vision, and Svosh. They are also able to provide vision care to communities who don't have access to care. How amazing is that?! 

DIFF sent me this gorgeous pair of Scout Light Gunmetal Sunglasses with Green Polarized Lens to share their mission. These sunglasses are high quality, polarized, and adorable! Polarized sunglasses are a game changer for my sensitive eyes. Such a great pair of sunglasses! I also wanted to give y'all a heads about their amazing Black Friday sale (the biggest one they've ever had) that will be starting this Thursday evening and running through next Monday night!

Buy One Pair, 30% off your order (excludes new styles & licensing)
Buy Two Pairs, 40% off your order (excludes new styles & licensing)
Buy Three Pairs, 50% off your order (excludes new styles & licensing)


Also, how amazing are these camo pants?! And they are under $30! I shared them in this Target Try Ons post (you can read all about the fit there) and they are definitely my current favorite pair of pants! I love how the skinny fit makes the camo print more feminine. I paired them with a velvet cami and a cozy cardigan to play in the leaves! This gorgeous fall weather is my favorite!

Budget Friendly Holiday Dresses

budget friendly holiday dreses, party dresses on a budget, what to wear to a holiday party, north carolina blogger, style on a budget

Hey y'all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! As promise, today is all about budget friendly holiday dresses! All of today's picks are perfect for wearing for a office Christmas party, Thanksgiving dinner, a night out with your best friends to celebrate the holidays, or a New Years Eve soiree. But the best part of these dresses is that they are all way under $40! I tried on six great options and I am sharing some additional options at the end of this post. 

You don't have to break the bank to look amazing at your upcoming holiday event this year! 

This leopard dress was my top pick and I had to have it! It's such a great versatile dress because it can be dressed up for the holidays (hello, glitter heels) or dressed down for everyday wear with riding boots and a cardigan! It is made out of the softest ponte knit fabric.

Fit: I tried on an extra small because that's the only size they had available in my store. I could have worn the extra small (even though I am no extra small) but I ordered the small online for a more relaxed fit and a little extra length. For reference, I am 5'5". Also, for the glitter heels, if you are in between sizes, I would definitely size down. I'm a true 8.5 and I needed an 8 in these.

I absolutely love fit and flare dresses for the holidays. With a pair of great heels, this style is so pretty on everyone! I also really loved the texture of the fabric.

Fit: I sized up one size to a medium for this dress for a little extra room. The small also would have worked but I like breathing room in my holiday outfits because food, lol. These black heels are a must have timeless pair of shoes! I will also be ordering these, as soon as possible. They are very comfortable and the fit is true to size.

As you know, I am loving all things velvet this season and I'll always love swing dresses! This velvet fabric takes your average swing dress up a notch. Throw on a pair of heels and statement earrings for a comfortable holiday look!

Fit: This dress fits true to size. I'm wearing a small.

This dress was definitely not something I would normally choose but I love the double ruffle detail and the color. Such an elegant dress and I can't believe it's under $30, y'all! 

Fit: I tried on a medium but I definitely think the small would have been a better fit for me in this one. I would definitely say this dress runs true to size so stick with your normal size. I often size up in this brand but it wasn't necessary for this gorgeous dress.

I unexpectedly loved this dress! It honestly didn't look like anything much on the hanger but this color is one of my favorites for the holiday season so I decided to give it a try. This shift dress is so flattering and has an adorably classy bow back detail. 

Fit: I am wearing a size small in this dress. I found the fit to be very true to size.

This is another super elegant and can you believe it's from Target?! This little black dress is under $30 and has the prettiest lace overlay. I love this one!

Fit: I tried this dress on in a size medium and it was a little roomy on me. I definitely think a small would have been a much better fit in this dress.

Currently Loving

style on a budget, north carolina blogger, mom style, fall fashion, casual style

Happy Friday! I hope your week has been amazing! As I mentioned yesterday, my week has been incredibly busy and I am so looking forward to some downtime this week. I fully intend on sleeping in as long as my children let me on Saturday morning. My body definitely needs the rest!

Today, I am rounding up eight items that I am currently loving. Almost everything on my list today I already own or it's on it's way to me!

1. Leggings | I featured these leggings in my Target Try Ons post earlier this week and I had to get a pair! For the amazing price tag, I was so surprised how good the quality was! The fit is also flattering and they are so comfortable. I found them to be true to size.


2. Turtleneck Tunic | Now that's leggings season, I realized that I have a major shortage of leggings friendly tops in my wardrobe. I ordered this cozy tunic sweater this week and I can't wait to wear it! 


3. Minnie Tee | We go back to Disney next month so I am in full on Disney prep mode now! I have been searching for cute tees that fit my personal style and this one is perfect. It's also under $10!


4. Fleece Jacket | I recently got a fleece vest from this same company and it's the softest, coziest thing ever so I knew I needed a jacket too. This neural color will go with everything! I sized up to a medium to layer with sweaters to stay warm this winter. 


5. Nikes | Y'all, I'm going to be super serious and tell you that these are the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn. I got a pair in this style a year ago and I have probably worn them over 200 times. No joke. I wear them to work, I wear them to workout, and I wear them with everything! I am going to pick up a new pair for our Disney trip because I love them that much. They fit true to size and you can thank me later. Best shoes ever!


6. Hooded Poncho | I absolutely love ponchos! They are perfect for throwing over a long sleeve tee or a dress for an easy, warm look. I also love that this one is pink (hello, favorite color) and it has a hood. I'm adding this to the top of my wish list!


7. Scarf | How cute is this leopard scarf?! I just don't think you can ever have too many leopard print scarves and this one is definitely a great one to add to your collection! I saw in store this past weekend and it's gorgeous!


8. Camo Pants | These pants were also featured in my Target Try Ons and I already own them! I had to have them the day I get that try on session because the fit is just incredible. The rise is somewhere between mid and high so it's super mommy friendly. They are called a jegging but they are much thicker than your typical jegging and the stretch is great while keeping their shape all day long. They also fit very true to size. The gray camo is such a great neutral too!


Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
