December Style Favorites

Happy Friday!  Today is the last day of school for my two and the start of the Christmas break.  We have early dismissal and then both are going home with their friends to start off the holidays.  They were so excited today not only because of a half day and heading to friends', but also to bring their teachers' gifts and to wear their pajamas!  Oh to be a kid again this time of the year :)

I felt like the last couple of weeks (maybe months) I've spent so much time looking for gifts for everyone and now that is done and I've finally shopped a little for myself.  The outfit above is nothing new, but pieces I've finally been able to wear now that our weather is cooler.  I shared on IG a couple of days ago, so thought I would share here too.  I love the red plaid button down in December!  The one I linked is only $12!

I also popped into Loft a couple of days ago and picked up a few things.  They have EVERYTHING 50% OFF using the code GIFTS.  Here's what I found:

I tried on all three and bought the first two.  All fit true to size for me...I bought size small for reference.  The lace bell sleeve top is fun and a little more dressy.  It's more full in the middle, but really cute partially tucked or I also liked it untucked and paired with skinny pants and heels.  The tie neck sweater is so comfy!  Thin, cozy material and fits like a blouse.  Hangs a little longer, so covers if you want to wear it with leggings or skinnies.  It will be one I go-to a lot!  Loved the last top too, just didn't need it.  But it would be so cute for a holiday party or new year's party.  Comes in red too.

I also bought this dress above and it should be delivered today.  I've been back and forth about it, but finally ordered it.  I did order two sizes though because the reviews are all over the place about the size.  But with Nordstrom's awesome free shipping and returns, I'll try them on and return one.  I love the ruffle detail and the three quarter length sleeves. 

*Ruffle Hem Shift Dress Update - Just received this dress today and fits true to size for me.  I ordered a 4 and 6 based on the reviews to size up, but the size 4 was a great fit for me.  Length was good as well...a few inches above my knees and I'm 5'5".

And I ordered these heels to go with the dress.  Love the style and that the heel is not too high.  Those 4 inch heels are no good for me.  With 400+ reviews with almost 4.5 stars and less than $60, I thought I'd give them a try. 

Below are some other December styles I love:

If I have a little time, here are some sales I plan to check out:

J.Crew - 40% off

J. Crew Factory - 50% - 60% off everything, extra 40% on clearance

Old Navy - Up to 60% off

Loft - Everything 50% off

So many good sales!  Thank goodness for online shopping.  There's still time to order and get your items by Christmas with the standard or free shipping at most stores, but will only be for a day or two more, so hurry if you want to take advantage of that.

Have a Merry Weekend!
