We are officially in 2018 and I am officially back to work after Christmas break. That is one of the biggest benefits of working at a school; I still get a holiday break when the semester ends! We got a little over a week off and man I did not want to go back today! Matt had some days off over the holidays as well and it was so nice to get to do so much together. Even though the holidays and break were super busy it was still so nice to get some time together without work. Going back today means hopping right back into the craziness and for Matt that means lots of work events and soon high school camp. I seriously cherished our time off.

Something super exciting happened over break too! My best friend got married! If you followed along on instagram you saw all the stories. I’ve known her for 8 years know and it was so cool to get to stand beside her on her wedding day! I can’t believe she’s a Mrs!

I got this sweater on Black Friday and my mama bought me the pink version for Christmas. It’s amazing and still such a great deal! Only $18 right now! Loft has multiple colors too. I’ve already worn both colors a bunch of times and gotten tons of compliments! I know this outfit is still a bit of a holiday look, but I think it’s also perfect to wear to the office. I know my office is always freezing and I am always reaching for sweaters to be warmer. The variety of colors Loft has makes it super versatile too!

Raw-Hem Denim with Abercrombie

Moo's Musing Abercrombie Outfit

Y’all know I love my Hollister jeans! They are seriously the only denim I have owned…up until now. The raw-hem on jeans has been becoming popular for quite awhile now, and I am totally on board! However, the raw-hem denim that I was drawn too just wasn’t at Hollister. That was really hard for me! Hollister jeans fit me and when they are on sale they can be a really good deal. Most other jeans were too big or their shape just didn’t fit my body type. I literally never find pants that fit me, hence why I usually stick to what I know. Yet, I had a desire for the raw-hem and I knew I had to branch out.

Welcome Abercrombie jeans! I seriously loved these so much! I really wanted them, but ordering online was going to be a risk. I even had y’all vote on instastories if I should just suck it up and buy them. I measured myself off the measurements they gave in the product details, and I thought they would fit but I was really unsure. I took the plunge though! And I LOVE THEM! They fit amazing, are super soft, and are exactly like what you see online. I still feel shocked that they fit me so well! I’ve ordered other items of clothing from Abercrombie in the last few months and a ton of other bloggers frequently talk about how much the brand has developed over the years. It’s funny to look back and think that Hollister and Abercrombie were brands I always wanted to wear in middle school but we could never afford. Yet here they are totally selling great clothes at much better prices and I am long gone from middle school.

Old Navy Suede Skirt

December 6, 2017

There’s an @oldnavy dressing room diaries up on my insta stories right now! This skirt is seriously to die for and you can get it 40% off. I didn’t buy it this weekend and now they don’t have my size. I’m seriously kicking myself and refreshing the page searching for it. http://liketk.it/2tlmo #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKsalealert
A bit ago I posted this instagram photo, and man did you people love it! This skirt was a huge hit. If you followed along via instagram stories you know the whole issue. I tried the outfit on in the store, but chose to wait to purchase it because I had an online code (ya know…gotta get the best deal!) However, when I went to buy it online they were sold out in my size (BOO). So I spent the next two days continuing to check the old navy website over and over again to see if they were going to restock it. Spoiler alert: They did! I was so stoked and bought it right away.

The second part to this story though is that I bought the wrong sweater. I wanted the sweater I tried on and bought a different one instead. The one I bought is fine, but not my favorite. At this point I’ve removed the tags and now have to keep it. But hey at least I got the skirt!

This outfit feels a little too fall like for December, but I shot it and never posted it so here we are. Not to mention I absolutely love this skirt! I’m so excited to find different ways to style it, so you can expect to see it a few more times. I’ve already been pinning ideas! I also just love that I fit in the skirt. It’s so rare to fit into a dress or skirt for me so I am totally stoked! Another thing, I have been loving Old Navy lately! Like so much it’s bad. I never really shopped there before, but man I have been lately! Their clothes are great and they have sales on sales on sales!

Now onto a more December Christmasy topic…but still…shopping! I’m almost done. This past weekend Matt and I accomplished so much! Mostly because of Bath and Body Works candle sale. Did anyone else score so many from there? I discovered they had a Capri candle that smells almost exactly like the famous Anthropologie Capri Blue one! It’s so close and a much better deal! Who even knew! With hitting there and all of my cyber Monday orders starting to come in I am checking so many people off my list and it feels so good! I actually feel on top of it. There’s still a few people from his family I’m not sure what to get but I do feel great since it is still so early in December. Have you started your shopping yet or do you wait til closer to Christmas?

Moo's Musing Thanksgiving


Target A New Day Cardigan Satin Copper Blouse Casual Thanksgiving outfit Moo's Musing Thanksgiving Satin Silk Blouse Target Textured Cardigan

As someone who doesn’t have a large family holidays are usually kept very small. The most we ever have over is no more than 10. Dressing up for the holidays really has never been a thing in my house because we never had a reason to. We eat our Thanksgiving meal for lunch so the morning is spent preparing that. Then everyone leaves and the last few years we have gone shopping. It’s a very simple and casual day. Over the year’s I’ve worn skirts and sweaters, but this year I am going for a short sleeve. We are projected to have a 90 degree Thanksgiving….I am so not happy about it! I thought this top would be perfect since it’s a cool material, but still an Autumny color.

This is the first year that I get to split Thanksgiving. Thankfully it wasn’t hard to figure out a good split between the boyfriend’s family and mine. I know so many people who struggle splitting holidays and I’m glad our first one together is simple! Since I will be spending time with more than just my own family I want to look nice, but I know we are probably going to do a lot of sitting around and chilling even at his family’s house. Some people still need to look dressier (don’t worry my suggestion for that is coming tomorrow), but here is a good casual option!

This cardigan is literally a dream. I bought this one and a black one. They are so comfy and a really great price. Target’s new line of clothing is a huge game changer! I can’t stop perusing their stuff. It’s so cute! Right now the cardigans are on sale so don’t miss out!
