Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I am still recovering from a food coma (We had two Thanksgivings!) Saturday night, I hosted a "friendsgiving" and cooked my first ever turkey all by myself. I was quite scared to tackle such a main part of the meal but it turned out well. I'm now thinking about cooking Thanksgiving next year! 

The rest of my weekend consisted of cleaning and shopping. I'm a huge black friday shopper (as well as an anytime shopper lol). It's a tradition every year that my mom and sisters and I go out early Friday morning. I usually focus more on my kids and getting their Christmas shopping done. I have to say, I did score some pretty good deals for myself this year. Pac Sun was buy one get one free on denim, so I just couldn't resist these olive green cargo pants. Express was 50% off the entire store so I made sure to stock up on some of my favorite basics.

Shop my look below (all on sale!) and the rest of my scores from Black Friday! Happy Cyber Monday!





Have a great day!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! 

I needed a fun and playful party dress for a friend's birthday party this weekend and was surprised to find exactly what I was looking for at Target. This blush tulle skirt was calling my name  when it caught my eye and I just couldn't resist it.    I love that it was adorned with a decorative silver waistband, giving it a playful but delicate touch. The lace peasant style top added an extra touch of femininity to complete my overall party ready outfit.

Have a great day!

Pink Knit Cardigan: Target (must buy!)  White Cami: Express (seriously the best cami ever!) | Jeans: Guess (old) similar here and here | Over The Knee Boots: Aldo and here (reference, I sized down half a size) | Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim

I have been searching for the perfect pair of over the knee boots for a few years now. I've been dreaming about the Stuart Weitzman pair, but unfortunately they're a little out of my price range for a boot that I may wear only a few times. One day, as I was scrolling through Instagram, I saw a post from Aldo with a woman featuring these boots and I instantly fell in love. I headed over to their site as fast as possible and tracked down my size at my local mall. These boots are everything I've been looking for in terms of fit and price range. I just love them and I'm glad I held out long enough to find these beauties!

Thanks for stopping by!

Blue and Black Faux Fur Vest: Target (couldn't find it online, check your local store!) linking several alternatives: herehereherehere and here | Black Sweater: Express (must have, comes in a few colors!) | Faux Leather Skinny Jeans: Blank NYC (sold out) similar pair here | Clutch: Halogen (old) similar color options here and here | Heels: Manolo Blahnik

Target is turning out to be one of my favorite places to shop for fun accessories at great affordable prices. (Their accessories department right now hosts the greatest faux fur goodies! Purses, scarves you name it!) My latest find and newest obsession is this blue faux fur shaggy vest by Mossimo. Although, my color seems to be sold out online, my store had plenty in stock, so check your local store for availability! I just love how it pairs beautifully with an all black outfit with matching blue purse and shoes, giving an overall polished look for a day out on the town.


And finally, I want to announce that I am on Snap Chat!! Follow me @ casuallystyled for an inside look at snippets of my personal life, including my kids!

I also want to say a quick thank you to everyone who reached out to me after Monday's post! Your words meant so much to me and I can't thank you enough! <3 xo

Happy Tuesday! Sorry I skipped my normal Monday posting. Sunday, I celebrated my 27th birthday and had a casual outing with friends and family. It was a great day of food, wine and great company. Not to mention I ate more cake in one day than I have all year lol! 

I wore this look over the weekend and I just love casualness of it, not to mention it was super comfy, yet a trendy ensemble. I was contacted by Yoins, an online woman's boutique, selling all the season's must haves at great prices. I was asked to show case a few of their items and one of the items I selected was this black and white striped crop top sweater. It's such a great fall basic to own, it's oversized, extremely comfortable and I just love that it's cropped. Definitely a must have, especially since it's only $17.95! Shipping was also super fast, I received my items in 8 business days, not bad since it came all the way from China! I also have to mention that if you spend over $40 you'll receive free shipping! Definitely take a moment to browse their site, I'm sure you'll find something that you'll love!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
