The holidays have REALLY snuck up on me this year! I mean, the days just keep going by and all of the sudden its the weekend before Thanksgiving! I am so excited for my Thanksgiving meal next week, but one thing I look forward to almost as much is the leftovers. I have a hot turkey sandwich every year on Black Friday, it’s just a given. This year though, I looked for some other great leftover ideas and found a whole bunch! (Yay Pinterest!) I picked my top 10 favorites and am sharing them with you today! Pin away so that you remember them next week, and enjoy! Let me know if you try any of them!
Last night, I met up with the beautiful Lee Ann from Life in ATX to have some coffee and chat. First of all, what a sweet heart she is! We were chatting about all things blogging, obviously, and one topic came up that I have been thinking a lot about lately- how to keep up with the blogging world. Everywhere you look in the blogging community you see $700 handbags, $300 flats, and everything is designer. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my Kate Spade planner and I do have a few (really tiny) designer bags (MK, Kate Spade, and Rebecca Minkoff), but these were purchased either on sale or at Nordstrom Rack. There is a point where I have to draw the line. I feel like a big thing that comes along with blogging is figuring out how NOT to give in to the pressure to buy anything and everything! I take pride in the fact that most of my outfits come from affordable and highly available retailers. I want to show my readers how to style items that they have in their closet or can at least afford to buy! It’s nice to look at that $500 dress with those $1000 heels, but it’s just not realistic to me. Even with all the money in the world I don’t think I could justify those kind of purchases. I would rather have 10 $50 dresses than 1 $500 dress, I like a little variety.

The handbag in this outfit is probably my biggest splurge ever, I used two $50 gift cards I won at work and paid $48 for. I had anxiety even buying that, lol. That being said, if you see anything designer on here, it was debated upon in my head for over a month and it’s GOT to be good! I just have to keep telling myself that I would rather have money saved for the days when we decide to start a family than have those Tory Burch flats. (I think…haha!) Stay strong budgeting ladies, you’re not alone!
Thanksgiving is just over a week away and I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait for mashed potatoes and gravy! I like the turkey and all, but I am more of a side dish girl. Give me green bean casserole, stuffing, and mashed potatoes with gravy and I’m set for life:) Well, obviously I have been thinking about my Thanksgiving day outfit for weeks now and today I’m showing you my ideas! One for the casual Thanksgiving setting, like mine…and one for if you are getting a little more dressed up for the big day! I am in LOVE with the scarf and cardigan in that first outfit…and those shoes! I need some oxfords! The glittery top in the second outfit is something I may need to invest in as well. It could be used for all sorts of holidays:) Enjoy!
This weekend was a leggings and boots type of weekend. It was cold and dreary and I just wanted to cuddle up and watch movies the entire time. Fortunately, I did get to do a little laying around, but let’s be realistic I’m an adult and adults have s*** to do on the weekends. So, to make it all a little more bearable leggings it was…all weekend long.

When The Shopping bag contacted me to collaborate I picked out this tunic because there is NOTHING I love more than bright colors in the winter time. It’s super comfy and I absolutely LOVE that it’s long enough to wear with leggings and cover my tush. Always remember: leggings are not pants! Cover your butt! I say that with the most amount of love possible!
The Shopping Bag has some SUPER cute clothes and I’ve already begun a shopping list for myself (duh!) including this maxi dress…how amazing is the back of that thing? The best part? The Shopping Bag is offering 25% off to all of you All That Glitters readers with the discount code ALLTHATGLITTERS. So get yourself on over to their website and check out what they have to offer!
**I received the tunic pictures above for free from The Shopping Bag. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.**
