Do you see a theme here? Everything is on sale! Hello Cyber Monday! I usually wait to do my online shopping until today - anyone else with me or do you knock it all out on Friday? Anyway, I recently picked up this cable knit sweater and striped shirt on sale. I thought they would be great closet staples - especially for layering. I love this sweater so much (it's not itchy!) that I might pick it up in more colors. 

I'm also stealing a style idea from last year's J.Crew catalog and wearing this silk scarf layered under my sweater. I admit - I kinda thought it was weird when I first saw it but a year later it's kind of grown on me. I also think it looks good under a blazer

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Mine weekend is being spent with family in Colorado. It's actually snowing here guys! I get to wear my winter clothes! This outfit post is obviously from back in California but I'm sure I'll be shooting some in the snowy weather here this weekend. 

Since it's after Thanksgiving now does that mean I can start wearing all of my holiday outfits?! Here's a look that I really hope I get to wear to a party this year. I love it because it works for Christmas AND New Year's Eve. If you aren't a big fan of dressing in red and green - neutrals with some sparkly is always a good idea.

Mixed Prints

Burgundy Jeans, Walter and George Clutch, Joe Fresh Blouse
Speckled Leather Clutch, Oxblood Skinny Jeans, Nude Lace Up Flats, Printed Blouse
Leather Clutch, Walter and George, Joe Fresh Pinted Blouse
Walter and George Leather Clutch, Purple Gap Jeans, Gap Lace Up Flats
Speckled Clutch, Walter and George Speckled Clutch

It's always fun to mix prints and this clutch from Walter & George makes it easy! The speckled pattern goes great with geometric prints, stripes and even florals. It also goes great with other natural leather pieces like these lace up flats from Gap. I've been thinking about getting a pair since the summer and I finally found some that work for me. I feel like it's kind of a trendy shoe so I didn't want to spend a lot. So I was super excited when I found a leather pair under $25 (on sale) from Gap! They also come in three other colors. Score! I also picked up these burgundy zipper jeans and a cream cable knit sweater on sale! 

Has anyone else started their Black Friday shopping early?? I got all of the Gap items for 50% off which I feel is basically the same deal you'll get on Black Friday - so why not start early and get it out of the way? Thankfully, I'll be in Colorado for Thanksgiving weekend. Black Friday shopping in Los Angeles is just madness! 

And can you believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving?! I hope you all have a relaxing weekend with friends and family. The Flashback Fashion Friday Link Up will still be going on if you'd like to stop by and link up your posts!

Joe Fresh Shirt (old)(fun option)(floral option)(patterned option)

Flashback Fashion Fridays #22 + Holiday Picks

Banana Republic Tux Tank, Leather Leggings, Marias Mules
Tuxedo Vest, Bannana Republic, Date Night Outfit
Tuxedo Vest, Black and White Outfit, White Mules
Banana Republic Vest, Black Vest, White Shirt
Black and White Mules, Black Tuxedo Vest, Black Jeans

Funny story about this outfit photo shoot - I was just minding my own business setting up my tripod when a van with two older guys inside shows ups and tells me they could be my models if I needed some! Haha... They also decided to give me some tips on poses, which you can see in my last photo. What do you think? Is it a keeper? 

THEN a girl pulls up in a car and asks me if I'm a photographer because she is looking for a shooting partner. So I had to go into a whole spiel about how I just take photos of myself for a blog. She still wanted my contact info so we could get together and do something "creative". The point of my story is - I wish my husband still wanted to take my outfit photos so I didn't have to talk to strangers! Haha. 

(You can also catch the whole story on my snapchat: jeansandateacup)

ANYWAY - onto the outfit! I think Banana Republic has been killin' it lately. I picked up this tuxedo vest recently and I love the menswear inspired vibe. It's actually more of a loose shell since it doesn't open in the front. And you can wear it without a shirt underneath. I added a white shirt underneath to go with my new Marais black and white mules. Can you believe they are under $50?! 

Outfit Details:
J.Crew Factory Button Down (similar)
American Eagle Coated Denim
J.Crew Factory Necklace

I'm also loving Banana Republic's holiday collection. During the holiday's I usually like to dress in metallics and different textures - like tweed, fur and feathers! I just picked up the "feathery" fringe skirt below and can't wait to wear it to a holiday party! 

You can find links below in the widget along with my other holiday picks! And the great news  is everything is 40% off right now with code "BRFRIENDS"

Black And Gold

Now onto Flashback Fashion Fridays! Here's a look from November 21, 2014. I think this skirt is so fun! It was a splurge at Anthropologie last year. I usually only get things from Anthro if they are on clearance. But I thought this skirt was really unique so I bought it on sale. Still not full price but not exactly $20!

Fair Isle Socks

Grey Gap Jeans, Purple Loft Sweater, Grey Scarf
Jord Watch, Grey Scarf, Loft basketweave Sweater
Grey Denim, Boot Socks, Grey Snood
Boot Socks, J.Crew Socks, Black Booties
Grey Knit Snood, Purple Knit Sweater, Fall Outfit

Sorry for my lack of posts lately. I came down with a cold last week and just did not feel like doing anything! I've also been in kind of a funk too. It hasn't really been a great month.

Anyway, I'm finally back at it with a new outfit! It's FINALLY been a little cooler here so I got to wear some layers! And by layers I mean an open knit sweater and a scarf. But I'll take what I can get at this point. Since I'm still kind of limited with my layering options because of the weather I've been looking to fun socks and booties to add some interest to my outfit. I really love the fair isle designs that come around this time of year. I usually get a few pairs as Christmas presents. Not only are they practical they are also affordable so it's easy to pick up a few pairs and switch them out depending on your mood!

Unfortunately, I don't see that many options online. But I got mine at J.Crew last year and there are always more options in store. Especially in the men's section - why is that? I've totally thought of stealing some from the guys section before.
