That Time of Year.. (See Jane Save)

I consider myself a professional shopper.  I mean it--I'm pretty good.  Not just clothing and accessories, but everything.  I know, my family is so proud.  But, I DID make a career of it, so there's that. 

Anyway, we all know Black Friday is around the bend but so many retailers get a jump on the competition.  Shopbop is currently running a 'buy more, save more' sale--get on your Christmas gift shopping now!  I love these gifts under $100 as a starting point but also these fashion finds are great for your lady gifts.  (Or if you're really stumped, buy someone a warm beanie (shop HERE)--seriously, they're a no fail gift.)

Also, Nordstrom is having a huge sale right now!  I'll update you all with the sales happening on Black Friday as I see them, too.  Happy shopping!

The Camel Blazer (See Jane Wear)

Manolo Blahnik pumps, Saint Laurent sunglasses, Chanel bag
This camel blazer has popped up on my instagram a few times and it's become an easy favorite.  It has a decent weight to it and can double as a coat--well, during a warm winter, at least.  I'm sorry, but I have to go on a tangent about this blizzard we experienced this past weekend--it went from 60 degrees to snow in a blink of the eye!  I turned 31 on Saturday (officially well into my 30s) and I can't honestly remember the last time there was snow on my birthday.  One year older and lots of snow--this is 31.

PS My husband planned an awesome surprise birthday party at Gogi because I LOVE Korean BBQ.  What a rascal--it was a fun night with my favorite people and also delicious, so if you're in Chicago (it's far north), check it out!

Repurposed Dress (See Jane Wear)

I found this dress in the depths of my closet and decided to give it a whirl.  I bought it while 7 months pregnant with the intent of it being my "cute maternity but not really maternity" dress.  Now, without the bump, it's slightly oversized--but I dig it.  Plus, when you throw a leather jacket on top, it just makes sense.
