Hi, friends – happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and a very Happy Thanksgiving! Drew & I went back to Dallas for the weekend and my dad’s whole family also came in town to celebrate. We had such a great weekend full of fun, family, and of course the most amazing food! On Thursday evening my mom & I took a break from the Thanksgiving festivities to venture over to Target to try to score some new iPhones with their Black Friday deal. We ended up at the store for about 4.5 hours! In the end everything worked out and we got our phones, but boy was it stressful! Because we were there so late on Thursday, I didn’t end up having time to put together a Black Friday post for you all on here, but honestly I think that is perfectly okay. It is always a tricky this time of year to balance between real life and blog life. For me, it is so important that I take time to be with family & friends during the holiday season (it’s not very often the whole family can be together at once!), and I didn’t want to miss out on that time by sneaking away on Thanksgiving to put a Black Friday blog post together. I love scoring a good deal (obviously), but during this weekend the world is SO overloaded with black Friday & cyber Monday ads (I mean if you follow ANY bloggers on social media, you will instantly know what I mean!) and I just don’t want to add to the noise. So rather than putting together a Cyber Monday post for today, I thought instead I would share a cute & cozy winter look and tell you all about one of my new favorite online boutiques – The Flowerloft!
As many of you know, my professional background is in apparel, and my first “real” job outside of college was working in the buying offices of Neiman Marcus. It was there that I met Lauren, who was definitely one of the most patient & positive co-workers that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Fast forward a few years to present day, and Lauren is now running the Flowerloft – an online boutique featuring a curated collection of the cutest pieces! I love the story of the Flowerloft so much – Lauren’s mom used to own a flower shop in Oklahoma, and when she decided to retire & close up shop a few months ago, Lauren decided to carry on the family business by turning it into an online boutique! You’ll find the cutest collection of apparel accessories, and even home décor at the Flowerloft; the sweater I am wearing today is from there and is quite literally the softest thing that I own in my closet. I never want to take it off! I love the ombre effect of the leopard print – it looks so cute and cozy paired with neutrals & OTK boots and I can’t wait to wear it even more as the weather cools off this winter. Also with the holidays quickly approaching, be sure to check out the Flowerloft – it is the perfect place to find a cute & unique gift for the lady in your life! Also since it is Cyber Moday, after all, the Flowerloft is offering 20% off your purchase all day today!
Thanks for stopping by!
