Scout Sale

Scout 4 Boys Bag in Breaking Plaid and Remember the Tartans $52.00 $33.80

Scout has a great Cyber Monday sale already live - 35% off plus free shipping with code MONDAYFUNDAY. I have yet to decorate for Christmas and I'm already thinking about packing it all up. I got a few of these huge zip top bags for storage. I couldn't decide between the plaid patterns so did a combination.

If you aren't familiar with Scout, I recommend checking out "the classics" first. These totes are lightweight and durable, making them great for travel. So many cute patterns to choose from. Bonus - you can have them monogrammed.

Happy Shopping!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Believe it or not, this striped coordination was not planned. I could barely contain my excitement when Ted pulled that sweater out of his bag yesterday morning because he rarely wears it.

We are spending the holiday on the Cape with his family. I don't have the shopping scene scoped out up here but I have the online scene covered. There are tons of sales.. these are the sales that I would check out if you haven't already.

Capri Blue Volcano is my favorite candle scent (tropical fruits, sugared citrus, mountain greens). The giant jar is worth the splurge. I especially love the mercury glass containers.

I took advantage of the Tuckernuck sale and picked out a Barbour Beadnell Jacket for Christmas. I recently tried it on in a store so I would know the size. I am normally a size 0/2 and got this style in a 4. Hurry, they are going fast today. (I'm not sure where they are based, but no tax for me. Even better!)

These Warmmuffs make a great gift for moms with strollers. Hands free when you need to take a picture, or the million other mom things. I'm getting a pair for my sister-in-law. (Thanks to Fairfield County 411 for the tip on these last year.)

Good luck shopping!

Jacket: Old Navy. Scarf: Zara (similar here)

Lehigh University and Lafayette College students and alumni took over Manhattan this weekend for the 150th rivalry football game at Yankee Stadium. I went to the better school :)

I miss watching the games from the sideline. 

Pregame 1: Murray Hill

Pregame #2: UES

Final Stop: Yankee Stadium

Ted didn't go to Lehigh, but happily wears the gear for me. 

Even the Empire State Building was decked out for the game. Unfortunately we didn't win... oh well! Still proud to be a Mountain Hawk.

Go Lehigh!

Blank Space

I often find myself asking others if they seen have the latest ____  music video and either get a polite "No, I haven't....tell me about it" or something along the lines of "When/Why do you watch music videos?" 

My gym, exhale, shows videos during Video Core Cycling class. It helps to fill that early 2000 TRL void in my life. Last week I saw Taylor Swift's latest, "Blank Space", and was blown away. The scenery, fashion and T-Swift's craziness is amazing (not to mention the Mean Girls reference). It's like Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats" meets Town & Country.

Here is a run down of the featured fashions. The video was filmed at Oheka Castle in Huntington, New York. 

What do you think?

Sunday Shopping

Recapping some shopping highlights from the weekend while watching football Anthropologie is offering 25% on all dresses... I picked this one up for an upcoming holiday event. I'm 5'2" so love that they offer this in petite. I typically don't buy petite sizes but in this case the length worked perfectly - the regular couldn't have been hemmed without losing the bottom detail.

I will be wearing this as pictured over a grey tee with black leggings and boots. 

I am going to a football game this weekend and realized I didn't have a warm jacket that I wanted to wear. Great deal! I wore it all weekend.

I have been seeing this vest all over the blogosphere... broke down and bought it. I'm a sucker for plaid.

Now back to cheering on the Pats... Happy Shopping!

Falling For...

Apparently a polar vortex is headed to Connecticut this weekend. Wishing I had this outfit to face it.

I'll probably be curled up on the couch in this snow leopard robe from Tarjay.

P.S. Shoshanna is on Rue La La today at 11AM EST. Perfect dresses for those upcoming holiday parties! If you are in the NYC area, the sample sale is 11/19 & 11/20 (details here). I went a couple years ago and scored some great deals. Happy Shopping!

Weekend Update

This past weekend was spent in Philadelphia visiting my friend Dineen. We woke up early on Saturday morning for yoga and then followed with a bar hopping tour around Philly. Even though I went to college in Pennsylvania (Lehigh) I haven't spent much time in Philly, so it was nice to get a tour of the city.

One of the doors along Elfreth's Alley, America's oldest residential street. I was curious how much these homes sold for and found a listing from earlier this year. Have a peak inside.

I'm happy to say that I completed most of my goals I posted last Monday, including organizing my makeup and products. I did wait until Sunday night but it got done. This is before I put it all back in the bathroom and not pictured is the pile of stuff I threw away. I ordered these acrylic drawers on Amazon about 2 years ago and really like being able to see everything I have in one place. The Container Store has similar drawers for a better price.

That's all for now... have a good week!

Target Alert

A friend of mine tipped me off to Target's online only collaboration with Minnesota-based Faribault that includes blankets, shawls, bags and tech accessories. My picks include the throws and shawls. 

This led me to the Faribault site... love the American flag throw.

And while we are on the topic of blankets at Target...

Threshold Organic Blanket $30.99 - $49.99

These are similar to Maine-based Brahms Mount's signature herringbone styles.

This week I will...
- Get back on a regular gym schedule. I took a week off and feel ready to go again. I was at the gym bright and early at 6AM this morning for spin and barre. 
- Start choosing photos for our wedding album. I aim to have them ready by Christmas.
- Update name on Social Security card. I delayed this because of travel, time to get everything officially switched over. This is where it begins...
- Organize my makeup and skincare. It's time to purge empty, unused and expired products. Sephora's VIB sale (20% off) starts 11/6.

My to-dos have been building up... taking action before the holiday craziness begins. Or has it already? Posting here holds me accountable.

Have a great week!
