In partnership with Zappos, I styled my new Paige jeans and Freebird boots for a fun holiday look because, well, who say’s ripped jeans and combat boots can’t get dressed up for the holidays too? All they need is a little dash of sparkle and they’re ready to party. To me, this is the perfect outfit to wear to a festive holiday party with friends.
Zappos has become my go-to for holiday shopping…actually, they’ve become my go-to for all types of shopping. I can’t believe that for the longest time I thought they only sold shoes. It wasn’t until last year that I realized they sell shoes, clothing, accessories and more! Please tell me I’m not the only one who has recently made this realization. I am so glad I discovered the world of Zappos beyond shoes because I am in love with the Paige jeans I got from Zappos. At Paige, they believe that every choice they’ve ever made — the big ones, the small ones, the right or the wrong — has led them to this moment. They believe that the best story you can make and share is the one of your own life, and they are passionate about designing pieces that reflect and celebrate it, so it was an obvious choice for me to celebrate the holidays in their jeans 🙂 And the other obvious choice for the holidays? My Freebird boots, duh! I think I’ve mentioned before that Freebird by Steven boots are handcrafted from start to finish, using a traditional Goodyear construction, in which stacks of leather are hammered together and carefully stitched to create a virtually indestructible sole. This technique has been used to create the highest quality boots for centuries. Let me tell you, these boots really are an amazing quality. I put them to the test last weekend when we cut down our Christmas tree. I stomped through the mud and rain, and it didn’t ruin them at all.  They also kept my feet dry which I was super happy about. Dry feet = a happy Kacie 🙂

Let me tell you a little something about my boss…she’s awesome, fabulous, super smart, and she can sing and dance beautifully. Ok, I may have lied about the singing and dancing part. She’s actually a horrible singer and dancer but I lie and tell her she’s great. In all honesty though, my boss is downright amazing! Yes, I’m my own boss so my opinion may be a tad bit biased 🙂 Seriously though, how fun is this shirt (25% off w/code: lovestylelately)?! I love it!

BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING OUTFIT + SALES

I’ll be honest, I don’t actually go shopping on Black Friday. This gal needs all the sleep she can get. I can’t stay up all night or wake up super early, even if it is to go shopping. Also, I’m afraid I might get trampled on in all the frenzy. I imagine Black Friday shoppers like cheetahs in the wild, fighting over a dead animal. I feel like I would be the weakest member of the heard and the first to die. Anyways, if I were brave enough to venture out to the stores on Black Friday, this is what I’d wear. A blanket scarf that can double as a blanket in case I get tired while waiting in the massive lines, hot cocoa because it’s delicious and I don’t drink coffee (but if I did drink coffee, I would want coffee to help keep me awake), and sneakers (with my custom orthotics in them) so I could run through the crowds to get the best deals. Also, a taser so I could taser someone if they try to cut in front of me. Is tasing people allowed? Maybe it’s in everyone’s best interest that I don’t go Black Friday shopping.

THANKFUL

All last week my sister and niece were visiting and it has been so sad not waking up to them these past two days. It was seriously the best week! We kept sending pictures to our mom, making her super jealous that she wasn’t with us. lol. Since Thanksgiving is Thursday, I thought I’d share a list (in no particular order) of some of the things I am thankful for:
1. My niece, Stevie Rae.
2. Limited Edition White Chocolate Covered Oreos. They are so good!
3. All of you! I know I don’t say it enough but thank you so much for reading my blog and for all your sweet comments! I appreciate it more than you will ever know.
4. My nephews, Jake and Ty. (P.S. Happy 8th B-day Jake!)
5. My custom foot brace, aka Bubba The Boot. If it wasn’t for Bubba, I would be in pain 24/7.
6. Plaid…it really is the best print there ever was.
7. All my hair tools/products. It takes a lot to tame this wild naturally curly head of hair. Without my tools/products, I would look like a lion.
8. My amazing family! My two doggies, my parents, sister & brother-in-law, my grandpa, aunts, uncles, cousins, 5th (or 2nd three times removed) cousins, ect. I have the best family!
9. Life
10. Tecnu. I have had a bad case of poison oak and Tecnu is the only thing that helps it.
11. And last but not least, the hubs. He’s an alright dude if you ask me 🙂
What are you thankful for this year?
P.S. Check back tomorrow to see my idea of the perfect Black Friday shopping outfit + some Black Friday Sales!

LEOPARD HEELS

Each year, the holidays sneak up on this little ole’ blog and I forget to post a holiday party outfit. I don’t know if the outfit I’m wearing today counts as a holiday party outfit (because when I think holiday party, I imagine dresses/skirts and a little more sparkle) but it has red in it, so I’d say I’m getting pretty darn close to a holiday party outfit. Speaking of the holidays, add leopard heels to your wishlist. That is not a suggestion, it’s an order. I’ve even found a bunch of cute options for you below with different colors and heel heights. Of course, I highly recommend the ones I have because they’re comfy and I love them!

RAE OF SUNSHINE

Do you see those chubby cheeks on my adorable niece Stevie Rae? I swear to you, they are the most kissable cheeks ever! She was here for my birthday two weekends ago and now my sister and her are here for the entire week while my sister’s husband is out of town. I’ll be spending my week kissing those cheeks…I just can’t help myself! Since I’ll be spending the week with this little Stevie Rae of Sunshine, I thought it was only appropriate to wear my new “Sunshine” bracelet that I had made. Stevie and I both share the middle name of Rae. Growing up, my sister always called me her “Rae of Sunshine” and I was so happy when she decided to name her daughter after me (and my dad, his name is Steve) because now I have a Rae of Sunshine too 🙂
P.S. Happy 29th Birthday to my amazing husband! Love you Cody!

Top c/o Romwe | Unicorn Mug c/o Uncommon Goods 
I didn’t even know I needed a unicorn mug until I saw this one from Uncommon Goods. It’s just so cute and I love it! How did I ever drink my tea without it? (Side note: I’m now a tea drinker. I recently realized that hot chocolate is not healthy for you so I switched to green tea.) But that’s what Uncommon Goods has…all the things you didn’t know you needed. They support and provide a platform for artists and designers, so they always carry the most unique items. Most of the products are made here in the USA and come from recycled/upcycled materials. How cool is that?! With the holidays coming up, it’s the perfect go-to place to find the best gifts for everyone on your list. You know that person who has everything and you never know what to get them?  (*cough* my dad) Uncommon Goods is sure to have something for them. How do I know? Because they have something for everyone. Need proof? Just see the little gift guide I put together below. Or you can see all the Christmas gifts they carry here.
gift-guide

See, I told you they have something for everyone. You can shop the gifts for women here and the gifts for men here. All the other gift items featured can be found here and here
One of the coolest things about Uncommon Goods is how charitable they are. With every purchase made, they donate $1 to the non-profit of your choice. Since they started the Better to Give program (you can read more about it here) 12 years ago, they’ve donated over $300,000 to charities around the world. If you ask me, there’s no better feeling than getting some Christmas shopping done and helping to donate to charities.

This outfit consists of everything I am loving right now. My Paige jeans? Love! My leopard pumps? Love! My tassel bag? Love! Any and all oversized sweaters? Love! Speaking of oversized sweaters, the other day I dug through the hubs’ closet (and when I say “dug”, I do mean “dug” because that boy keeps his closet an absolute mess) to steal some sweaters from him. I only found one sweater to steal from him. It’s grey and big and comfy and he’s never getting it back. I probably should have known I wouldn’t find many sweaters (he’s more of a plaid shirt guy- like he has 30+ plaid items) because I see him in all his clothes and I’ve only seen him in that one grey sweater once (on Christmas when I forced him to wear it and he wore it for one picture and then changed into, you guessed it, plaid). I guess I was just hoping that under his pile of plaid clothes, I’d find a hidden treasure chest full of sweater for me to steal. But by the end of my search, the hubs had an organized closet and I rewarded all my hard work by going to TJ Maxx and buying myself the oversized sweater I’m wearing in today’s post so I guess is was a win-win for both of us 🙂 Plus, he finally doesn’t have to worry about me forcing him to wear that sweater ever again because I’ve now claimed it as my own.

You guys, I have poison oak (again) and it is horrible! I used to get it as a kid when we’d go camping but now I’m really aware of it and stay away. Unfortunately, there is poison oak all over our property and the hubs and dogs bring it into me. Ugh! I hate it so much! I have it on my neck, my shoulder, my butt (how did that happen?!), both ankles, and the back of my left leg. The back of my leg oozes and drips down my leg and it got all over these jeans. Gross! All I think about all day is scratching my leg. Thank heavens for a white button down and jeans! It’s the perfect go-to outfit when you can’t think about getting dressed because all your mind is thinking is I’m so itchy!
Happy Friday! And I’m sorry if I completely grossed you out while you were reading this post 🙂 Hopefully my dad doesn’t read it because he has the weakest stomach ever and would definitely throw-up.

So I have this super awesome wire bracelet that says “sunshine” and I totally forgot to wear it when I took these pictures. I had it on but then took it off when I added another layer under my sweater for warmth and I completely forgot to put it back on. Don’t you hate when that happens? I’ll wear it again soon so I can show it to you because I just love it 🙂 But I did remember to wear my fabulous earrings so that’s good. They’re so fabulous that when I showed them to my mom when she came to visit last weekend, she put them on and didn’t take them off for the entire three days she was here. Now that I think about it, I don’t see them in my jewelry box so she might have taken them home with her. When a mother steals from her child, that’s how you know something’s fabulous.
