Weekend + Links

Happy Friday and welcome to December, friends! I love having our Christmas tree lit up each night and already know I’m going to miss it once it’s taken down. I’m headed back home to Charleston for the weekend to enjoy some of the low country festivities with my family. We have two tree lightings, trying out a new Italian restaurant, holiday decorating and some baking on the books. A perfectly relaxing weekend that I’m so excited for since the rest of this month is jam-packed.

favorite links:
+ I can’t wait to make Lisa’s ‘swig cookies‘ this weekend
+ Sad to hear that Self Magazine is closing it’s print division
+ I love all the pretty and festive holiday decor sprinkled throughout this home tour
+ It’s almost that time – Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the behind the scenes video are always my favorite

sales & deals:
+ the best over the knee boots are marked down before the coldest months (and when you’ll live in them)
+ a perfect oversized cable knit that’s under $30! I have an xs for a relaxed fit and a small for an oversized fit
+ I’m into mockneck sweaters at the moment and this one looks so cute
+ bold colored workout clothes are always a good idea

    Love those Christmas touches, too, especially the sparkly trees on the fireplace hearth and the white trees…such a neat idea!

    Do you have any Lulu leggings? I am a tried and true fan but wondering how they compare to Zella. Thoughts?!

    I loved all the behind-the-scenes videos and photos from the VS Fashion Show – I’m always trying to figure out how to copy their hair and makeup. Hope you had a wonderful and fun weekend at home!

    Your Snaps from Charleston this weekend were amazing! So pretty! And yay for the VS Fashion Show! Can’t wait! I can’t believe those SW boots are on such a deep discount! I just wish it was cool enough down here to wear them! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
