Outfit: Christmas Tree Farm

Anyone else having the Monday morning blues? With a presentation in a few hours and hours upon hours of class and work today, I most definitely am. I'm already day dreaming about being back at home in Massachusetts with my family for Christmas in just a few few weeks. 

My family got a little bit of a head start on the Christmas preparation since one my of favorite parts of the holiday is picking out our Christmas tree! It's just a bit too late to go to a tree farm when I get home around the 20th of December, so instead we avoided all malls and went on Black Friday. 

A festive outing also gave me the best excuse to break out my buffalo plaid jacket that I've been saving since I bought it over the summer. I found this ahmazing coat at a Second Time Around store on Long Island with all the tags still on it as well as the back flap still sewn shut (aka unworn!!). I got an amazing deal and have been not-so-patiently waiting to wear it ever since then. It seems a little too bright for NYC, but it's perfect for a New England Christmas Tree Farm! 

SHOP THE POST: J.Crew Coat (similar) // jeans // Sperry boots (similar

p.s. I LIVE in Sperry Boots when scary winter weather comes around. They are the best for snow and slush puddles both in NYC and the country.

HOLIDAY 2015: Cyber Sales

Black Friday is here and I have to say, the sales are pretty great this year. For those of you out braving the malls and shopping districts of this country, good luck. I'll be doing all my shopping from my comfortable couch with leftover pumpkin pie in hand.

The distinction between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is growing smaller every year and this year there are already plenty of online sales going on! I've shared a few of my favorite sales and picks from those sales below, but on top of those you must check out Hallie Wilson's Cyber Monday Tips. My two biggest tips are think about shipping costs and plan out your big-ticket purchases. Almost every store either has free shipping or free shipping once you hit a certain price threshold. Always hit that price threshold, you can always return things later.

So without further ado here are a few of my favorite sales:

50% off everything at TOBI with code thankful50:

50% off everything at ANN TAYLOR with code celebrate:

50% off sweaters and 40% off everything else at BANANA REPUBLIC with code brfriday:

Up to 60% off at OLD NAVY:

HOLIDAY 2015: Giving Thanks

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year. I've been lucky enough to be surrounded by family or friends every year around this time, so even when the rest of my life is crazy they remind me to be grateful for everything I have. This year I'll be spending Thanksgiving with both family and friends sitting around a huge table filled with more food than we could possibly eat and that alone is something we need to step back and remember to be thankful for.

Outfit: Staple Sweater

Guys, can we just pause for a moment and think about how close we are to Thanksgiving? SO. CLOSE. I have a midterm this morning and then I'm home free! Not exactly looking forward to tonight's bus ride that will likely be very traffic filled, but the reward of family and puppies on the other side is so worth it.

HOLIDAY 2015: Gifts Under $25 For All Your Friends

So here we are with the gift guide I've been looking forward to the most this year. Whenever I start planning back to school or holiday blog posts the first place I turn to for requested posts is my friends, and I have to say this post was very requested. 

For all of us college students money is definitely tight, but that doesn't mean we can't get both fun and actually high quality gifts for our friends when the holidays arrive. A meaningful gift doesn't have to break the bank, it just has to be something that you know fits the friend. We all have a friend who's constantly tweeting #ratherbeonACK or the friend who's week revolves around wine Wednesdays (or perhaps even Whine About It) and there is a perfect gift for each of them.
