Tuesday Trends: Ugg Boots Love

Boots // Socks (on sale) // Dress
I know last week I talked about the girls and their love for their little purple Minnetonkas (see the post here) that I got from Nordstrom.  Well, after some thought and the cold weather we had last weekend, my mother-in-law ended up gifting the girls their little Ugg Boots early.

These pics were taken last Friday, before Effie's birthday party.

Wheeler: Dress // Leggings    Effie: Dress // Leggings
For fit, the boots are true to size.  One thing to note is that the taller style in these Uggs, starts at a size 13.  Thanks to the Nordstrom specialist in the shoe section for letting me know about that.  I loved the taller ones, but the girls ended up having to go with the shorter version because they both wear 12s.  Honestly, I'm so glad they did the short style though.  For as much as the girls talk about how warm they are, I can't imagine them being any warmer than they already are.  On how much they love them?  Effie puts hers beside her bed at night, so she can put them on as soon as she wakes up.  She's also been into this thing where she likes to pretend she's an adult, and since she's seen my youngest sister and I wear ours a lot recently, she wants to wear hers too.  I went with a neutral color so that they would go with more of their outfits.  And when they grow out of theirs, the boys can wear them too.
Always their favorite thing to do whenever we visit to the fish and get a balloon.  FYI, in the kids' clothing section, they're currently playing the movie Frozen on repeat.

I hope y'all have a wonderful Tuesday!  Busy but fun day here.  Effie has her Thanksgiving Program this morning.  Wheeler has her Thanksgiving Party this afternoon, where I'm in charge of creating and leading a game.  I'm thinking "Pin the Feather on the Turkey?"  And this evening, we're headed to my parents' house for an early Thanksgiving meal with almost all of my sisters! Cannot wait to see them!!

A big thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post! All opinions and outfit choices, as always, are my own.

Since we're talking about sales, y'all know that Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals will start popping up in your inboxes this week.  I know I probably don't even have to say this, but be sure and check back here throughout the week.  I'll be the first to let you know when any sales go live.  I'll also be back throughout the day (especially Friday-Monday) to update my posts, if new sales have been added.  I know all of these great deals and sales can be a bit overwhelming, so I'll try and organize it all for you the best that I can, sharing my favorites from the sales and/or showing you products I currently own and love that have been marked down.  If any of my holiday gift guides that I've featured in the past few weeks have anything marked down, I'll be sure and let you know about those markdowns too.  Always happy to make shopping easier for you this time year, because y'all know I LOVE to do it!

Today, I'm sharing some great gifts for the men.  Enjoy!

If we're hanging out on the back deck, den, kitchen, we always bring it wherever we are.  We hook up our Pandora app since the speaker has Bluetooth, pick our station and we're good to go.  The kids love being able to play DJ too.) // S'well Water Bottle // Leather Wrapped Stainless Steel Flask // Canvas Laptop Sleeve // 'You Earned It' Bottle Opener // Coin Tray // Folding Barware Set // Frye Logan Messenger Bag // Dopp Kit // Ugg Slippers // Leather Deluxe Wallet // Touchscreen Gloves // Ray-Ban Aviators // Jack Spade Bacon Money Clip // The Monocle Guide to Better Living // The Monocle Guide to Good Business // 4-1 Adapter // WWII Inspired Mending Kit // Household Task Tool Kit // Bocce Set // Horseshoes Set // Cuff Link Box // Carolina Cuff Links // Swiss Army Knife

Love this little stuffed animal Ostrich.  Would make the cutest gift for a little girl!

We're headed to the Garth Brooks tonight with friends!  Cannot wait!  When he was here back when I was in high school, I went to his concert two nights in a row.  I probably haven't listened to him since I was college, but I'm sure I'll know every song.  Should be a fun night!

Hope y'all are having a great weekend!

Fashion Friday: Another Holiday Dress, and it's 40% Off!

Happy Friday!  I'm so excited to share another holiday look with you today.  And the best part?  My Kate Spade Virginia Dress is on sale at Nordstrom right now for 40% off, $159.20 off to be exact!  As I've stated before, Nordstrom price matches.  Kate Spade is having a sale right now on their site, so Nordstrom met many of those prices.  And even if you see something that they haven't marked down, you can still call Nordstrom, and they'll price match it.  Pretty cool, right?

Dress // Necklace // Ring (on sale, 40% off) // Earrings // Clutch (similar here) // Nail Polish // Sunglasses (same style, different color here) // Lip in Coral Gables // Heels (sold out, similar here, here and here)
Just like the Tory Burch Cora Dress (also on sale) that I'll be wearing this coming Thursday evening for Thanksgiving, I wanted something fancy but comfortable.  I also wanted a versatile dress that I could wear now, and on after the holidays were over.  Enter my Kate Spade Virginia Dress.  I can move in this one and it's not stiff at all.  The lace overlay is great.  This way I'm not having to worry about my dress being staticky and clingy all night.  The sleeve and dress length is perfection, and the back has a subtle cut-out at the top which I love.  That way you can pair it with any style bra you want.  A very classy dress that I can see myself wearing for years to come.  For fit, it's true to size.  The other great thing about this dress is that you can accessorize it with just about anything.  I've paired mine with red heels, but you could also pair it with a bright red clutch or necklace, to dress it up for a holiday event.  And don't forget, it's on sale!

Here are a few other holiday dresses I'm loving too...

We've got Effie's Birthday Party today and if you're in town, South Park's Christmas Tree Lighting is tonight from 5-7.  If it's anything like last year, they'll have face painting, jumpy houses, crafts, in the parking lot behind Symphony Park.  I just hope it's not too cold!
This is from last year's event.  So warm!

TGIF, Y'all!

A big thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

Thirsty Thursday: Apple Cider Fizz + Kate Spade Sale + OOTD + OOTN

Kate Spade is having another sale!  Take 25% off your purchase, enter code: OHJOY at checkout!
Sale ends on Monday at midnight!

I received some of my Kate Spade Sale goodies in the mail the other day.  If you need a great gift idea, this coffee table book is perfect!  The Kate Spade green cover alone will definitely pop on any bookshelf or coffee table.  And I love the size of these little silver pave studs.  They'll pair well with anything gray in your closet.
When I was thinking of what cocktail to choose this week, I thought since I was sharing some Kate Spade love, that I'd find a champagne cocktail to show off these little polka dot Kate Spade flutes.
This week's cocktail is super easy, and perfect for any Fall occasion.  Maybe something simple to have for a Thanksgiving Happy Hour?

Apple Cider Fizz

5oz Champagne
1oz Fresh Pressed Apple Cider (I used White House.)
Raspberries (for garnish)

Pour 5oz of your favorite champagne into a glass.
Add 1oz of fresh pressed apple cider.
Toss in two raspberries.


I'm also loving this Cedar Street Mini Maise Bag too.  I may add this to my Christmas Wish List.  And it comes in six different colors!

How pretty are these pieces by Theodosia Jewelry?  I could seriously own them all!  I met the owner Jenny Thompson a few weeks ago and she is so sweet and friendly!  A mama to three, living in Charleston, she said she's always loved making jewelry, even as a little girl.  After graduating from Rhodes College with an Art History degree she moved to Charleston and began her line, Theodosia Jewelry.  It's named after her great, great grandmother.  While not all of her jewelry is available online, if you see anything that catches your eye, even in the photos above, you can contact her here or email here at, to see if it's still available.  She also carries her jewelry at many boutiques.  See the full list of retailers here.
Jenny has so many original pieces!  The best part?  She's offering all SSP readers 20% off!  When ordering, just make sure and tell her SSP sent you, and the discount will be applied.

What I'll be wearing today...

Heading out for a girls' night.  Can't wait!
Rebecca Taylor Lynx Print Top (on sale, was $275, now $138) // Kate Spade Studs // Kate Spade Cocktail Ring (on sale) // Kate Spade Karolina Bow Pumps (currently 25% off, use code: OHJOY at checkout)
