Madewell is offering an Extra 20% Off Promo-Priced Items & Sale Styles with code META20 at checkout until 11.2.15. Shipping is FREE on ALL Orders, too...YAY! Now as I'm sure many of you already know, a good number of the Sale Items tend to be marked as final sale, but thankfully, the Promo-Priced Items also receive the 20% discount and are NOT Final Sale...gotta love that!

These items are eligible for any extra % off sale or full-price promotions that may occur at any time. The Promo-priced items are also eligible for the Educator and Student Discounts, so if you are a teacher or student you can receive an additional 15% off on them, as well.

As I've mentioned many times before...I absolutely love Madewell. The casual-vibe of their clothing works well with my lifestyle, the styling on the website stays more to the understated side, the prices are often more affordable than a lot of the retailers offering similar styles, and I love that they always offer Free Shipping on ALL orders, too.
The quality has been good on all the items I have ordered, and the pieces are all holding up very well so far. I've shared pics of me wearing a couple of the jackets, shirts, scarves, and a dress on my Instagram.

Cooking Simplified: Pumpkin Patch Dirt Cups

Hello my friends! I hope you're having a lovely week so far! Today I'm sharing a recipe for a super cute dessert that is perfect for autumn celebrations...
Pumpkin Patch Dirt Cups.
How cute are these? I came across the recipe not too long ago on Facebook. I have not yet had the chance to make them, but plan to do so in the next week, or so.
They appear fairly easy to make, and I just know the boys are going to love them! :)

Ingredients:

2 Packages of Oreos

Directions:

1. Make the pudding by following directions on the box
(whisk together pudding mix and 3 cups cold milk).

2. Use a food processor, Vitamix, or Ninja to crush the Oreos until smooth.

3. Layer the Oreos and chocolate pudding in a clear cup.
Oreos, pudding, Oreos, pudding, and top with Oreos.

4. Top with a Green Sour Straw candy cut in half (the pumpkin vine) and three pumpkin candies.

5. Serve with a spoon!



That's it...easy peasy, but so fun and perfect for autumn!
I'm sure the kiddos (and adults) will love them!






Life Simplified...Thankful Thursday

Life can be difficult or stressful no matter your circumstance...where you live and work, whether you're married or single, have a child, lots of children, or no children at all. I believe that in these times it is extra important to think of all the good things in your life, no matter how small, as it really does help to put your focus on the positive. Instead of being caught up in all the 'bad stuff' happening in your life, it can help to change your attitude into one of gratitude, making your present life and circumstances much more enjoyable.

Today I am sharing my list of 10 Things I am Thankful for on this Thursday...

1. God's Unconditional Love.

2. Fellowship with friends.

3. A roof over my head.

4. Food in the pantry.

5. Hugs from my boys.

6. Wool socks.

7. Shearling-lined boots.

8. Chocolate.

9. Campfires.


What are you thankful for today?

Tory Burch Fall Sale - New Styles Added - Up to 60% Off & Free Shipping on All Orders - My Personal Picks

Tory Burch Fall Sale is taking place now, and new styles have been added...YAY!!!
Save up to 60% Off shoes, clothing, handbags, and more, plus there is Free Shipping/No Minimum if you live in the U.S. or Canada.
As always, there is so much to love at Tory Burch, and since her entire line tends to be rather spendy, shopping the sales is the absolute best way to score her pieces for a fraction of the original cost. The Fall Sale currently has tons of lovely items...click here to shop,
and take a peek at my personal picks below:

*Waxed Leather Asymmetrical Zip Jacket - both colors are gorgeous, not to mention perfect for fall.

*Bonded Chiffon Texture Peacoat - always love the peacoat, and what a lovely shade of blue this one is!

*Wool Cashmere Peacoat - one can never go wrong with a peacoat done in basic black.

*Ribbed Collar Jacquard Coat - beautiful color, cut, and quilting.

*Stitched Plaid Coat - really like the color, the plaid, and the vintage vibe.

*Suede-Front Merino Cardigan - such a lovely variation on the cardigan...I really like that color, too.

*Pleated Silk Shirt - absolutely lovely print, plus it's silk...that's a win/win.

*Madison Cardigan - this is my favorite silhouette when it comes to cardigans. I wouldn't mind having this one in both colors.

*Cotton Collared Tunic Shirt - yet another great print, and of course I love the longer length.

*Poplin Tunic - love this shade of blue. This would be great to pair under a cardigan or blazer this fall, too.

*Printed Crewneck Sweater - I do love tastefully done animal prints, and this one is very lovely.

*Iberia Cashmere Sweater - oh my goodness, what lovely colors, and less expensive than cashmere at J.Crew.

*Matte Jersey Camp Shirtdress - yes please! Love the color, pattern, silhouette, and length!

*Ribbed Turtleneck - turtlenecks are a staple item in my fall & winter wardrobe. Love the color, and slightly longer length on this one.


*Stretch Silk-Cotton Dress - so cute! Wear this one with a cardigan, stockings, and knee boots this fall & winter, then sandals in the spring & summer.

*Junction Riding Boot - a classic staple for every wardrobe. Both colors are equally lovely.

*Printed Cotton Short-Sleeve Dress - love! I would wear this one over jeans or white pants/capris as a tunic.

*Racing-Stripe Logo Jacquard Scarf - wool done in feminine ballet pink with grey...so pretty.

*Pieced-T Patchwork Satchel - beautiful colors of leather on this one...especially love the green olive colorway.

*Canard Stripe Square Scarf - love the colors, and the print is very cute, too.

There is so very much more that I love in this sale, too much to even list...oh how I wish I had an unlimited clothing budget! I'm sure many of you feel the same way as I do, too!

Are you planning to shop the Tory Burch Fall Sale? Is there anything you've had your eye on? Do you own any of the items now on sale, or have you seen them in person?

Anthropologie Perk Alert - Free Shipping, No Minimum Plus First Dibs for November - Take a Peek at What I'm Loving

Anthropologie is offering FREE SHIPPING on ALL Orders for a limited time,
plus they've added first dibs for November to their website, so it's the perfect time to shop! :)

Now I, for one, love, love, love Anthropologie! The boho feel that many of the items have really appeals to my personal style, and I am always, ALWAYS able to find a lot of different pieces to love and long for. That being said, I thought I'd share some of my personal picks with you.
Take a peek at what I'm loving below...
1. Northland Moto Jacket - really like the bouclé done in the moto jacket silhouette, but which color to choose? I'm leaning towards the ivory for myself.

2. Militaria Wool Coat - completely stunning...I love that color!

3. Colorblocked Leather Moto Jacket - I am absolutely smitten with this jacket. The color combo is georgeous, and I love the quilt detail.

4. Knit Field Jacket - I'll take one of each color, please.

5. Buffalo Plaid Vest - yes please!!!

6. Corded Eliel Blazer - I like everything about it...the color, the silhouette, the length, and the elbow patches.

7. Embroidered Sherpa Vest - as you know, I love pretty much anything embroidered, and this vest is no exception.

8. Marled Mockneck Pullover - love. The hardest decision is what color to choose, since they are all equally lovely.

9. Vielle Cardi - yet another one I wouldn't mind having in both colors. I love the length and the silhouette.

10. Embroidered Mosippa Pullover - wouldn't this be so lovely for the holidays? Love the neckline, and the embroidery, of course.

11. Collared Sweater Vest - so very lovely. I adore the length and the faux-fur collar...so chic.

12. Marled Cowl Pullover - the longer tunic length really appeals to my personal style right now. I really like the neckline on this one, not to mention it looks extremely cozy, too.

13. Ribbed Cashmere Pullover - another one with a slightly longer length, this time done in cashmere...why, yes please!

14. Nautical Lace Top - oh my, how incredibly beautiful this is! All 3 colors are equally gorgeous...it really would be difficult to choose a favorite.

15. Lakin Tunic - I really like this tunic a lot, especially in the navy colorway. This would be really cute paired with a pair of skinny jeans and knee boots. You could easily throw a jacket over it, too.

16. Crosstown Dress - yet another one that I would like to have in both colors. The silhouette and scallop detail on this one are so lovely. The red would be perfect for a Christmas party, too.

17. Catalin Maxi Dress - absolutely stunning! The color and bead detail are quite striking, and the overall silhouette reminds me of a Grecian goddess.

18. Cabled Colorblock Dress - Maeve is one of my favorite designers when it comes to dresses, and this one has been added to my wishlist.

19. Paige Verdugo Coated Skinny Jeans - great option for wearing under those tunic length tops and sweaters.

20. Paige Shelley Moto Jacket - what post would be complete without some plaid included? This one is indeed quite spendy, but still very cute. Perhaps on super sale?

21. Jean Shop Flare Stretch Jeans - such a flattering fit and wash.

Of course there is much more that I love than this...I didn't even make it to the bags, shoes, jewelry, and accessories, but those will have to wait for another day.

Are you planning to take advantage of the Free Shipping, No Minimum promo at Anthropologie?
Are there any items you've had your eye on? What do you think of the first dibs for November?
Please do share...I always love to hear from you! :)

Sundance New Arrivals - My Personal Picks

At the beginning of last week, Sundance sent out an email to let shoppers know that over 200 New Arrivals have been added to their website. As always, there is much to love, so I thought I'd share some of my personal picks with you...take a peek at what I'm loving:


1. Call of the North Moto Jacket - absolutely love the jacquard embroidered detail combined with the ruggedness of the leather. I would absolutely wear this in a heartbeat.

2. Natasha Coat - love this, especially in black. I am a sucker for anything embroidered, and this coat is no exception.

3. Wolf Creek Zip Sweater - Yes please!!! I really wish I had this to wear right now...sadly out of my budget at the present, but will be hoping to catch it on sale.

4. Breathtaking Moments Cardigan - love the colors, length, silhouette...everything about it.

5. Merida Turtleneck - I want one in all three colors.

6. Everdeen Top - I'll take one in the 'fig' colorway, please.
Absolutely gorgeous, and a perfect piece for fall.

7. Through the Woods Tee - I absolutely adore these style of tees! I already own the
Folk Art Paisley Tee, and it is just so lovely in real life. That specific tee I do find to run tts/slightly large, so my guess is that this particular tee will be the same as far as fit goes. I suggest that you go with the size you normally wear if you're purchasing.

8. Wild Flora Tee - So very pretty with all the seed beads, appliqued yarn, and soft, matte sequins on the floral embellishment. This is a great layering piece, and will work well for the springtime, too.

9. Brilliant Sky Top - Love this...such a fun tee for the wintertime! This would be cute on Christmas morning with a pair of plaid PJ pants, too. :)

10. Dulcet Tones Tee - I would seriously love to have one in all 3 colors. Absolutely beautiful, and a great piece for creating a 'casual chic' look.

11. Raine Tunic - I do not yet have an aversion to mohair (I haven't had much of a chance to wear it a lot), but I know some people do. I would definitely be willing to give this one a try, as I love the color, length, and large turtleneck

12. Velvet Shadows Skirt - Absolutely gorgeous! Perfect for Thanksgiving Dinner, a Christmas play, dinners out...unlimited possibilities really.

13. Duotone Jeans - Really, really like these a lot! I imagine they would be extremely flattering on, as the dark panels on the inner and outer thighs should have a very slimming effect on your leg overall. I, for one, can use that extra added help. :)

14. Artist's Palette Necklace - So lovely with all those gemstones, not to mention extremely versatile. The perfect accessory for a casual chic look consisting of a tee, cardigan, jeans, and boots.

15. Infinite Charm Necklace - pretty, pretty, pretty...love the double-tier and handcrafted charms.

16. Revels Necklace - So stunning! I am just such a fan of longer length necklaces, and this one is no exception. The price tag is pretty spendy, so it would have to be a definite sale purchase, but oh what a lovely investment it would be!

17. Snowdrift Necklace - I really like the contrast of the pearls and garnet on the leather cord. Quite the statement piece, yet still feels delicate at the same time.

18. Snowdrift Earrings - So very lovely...designed to go as a set with the necklace above. I think the two pieces together would be quite stunning.

19. Skydive Earrings - Absolutely gorgeous color, and I especially love that they combined it with sterling silver.

20. Artist's Palette Bracelet - Companion to the Artist's Palette Necklace, and equally lovely. Not sure I would wear them together, but anything's possible. ;)

21. Serenade Bangle Set - What a lovely addition to any woman's wardrobe.

22. Congruence Ring Quartet - Isn't this set just so pretty? I have a couple different sets of stacking rings that I purchased from Madewell, and really like the versatility the sets offer.

23. Green Centerpoint Ring - Love the simplicity of this piece.

24. In Alignment Ring - Such a stunning piece! How lovely would it be when paired with the bangle set above?

25. Eternal Joy Ring - Yet another gorgeous piece! Out of my budget, unfortunately, but still added to my wishlist in hopes of a supersale to come.

What are your thoughts on the new arrivals at Sundance? See any items you might want to try, or that happen to be a definite 'must have' for you? Have you seen any of the pieces in person already? Please do share...I always love to hear from you! :)

J.Crew New Arrivals & 25% Off Your Purchase - My Personal Picks

J.Crew recently added another round of New Arrivals to their website, so I thought I'd share my personal picks with you. I must admit that it has been quite a while since I have shopped at J.Crew, or even taken a look at their website. Over the past couple of years I have felt that the quality and designs have been extremely lacking, and just did not have a desire to deal with those issues, or with the hassle of returns...opting instead to shop at my beloved Madewell or Sundance.
However, upon browsing Feedly, I saw mention of a Tippi Leopard Sweater (which of course immediately peaked my interest, as I am such a fan of anything leopard-print), and decided to take a peek at the J.Crew website to see if the new arrivals might offer something to my liking.
To my pleasant surprise, there are actually quite a few pieces that I find intriguing, and may just consider giving a try.

Take a peek at what I'm loving...

*Double-cloth long peacoat - I have always adored the peacoat. Add to that the longer length and gorgeous color options...what's not to love?

*Wool melton military coat with faux-fur collar - My guess would be that this is not actually new this week, but I like it just the same, especially in hthr charcoal.

*Chateau parka in stadium-cloth - I missed out on this one last year waiting to grab it on sale. Glad to see it being offered again in additional colors...love the red, grey, light blue, and black (not the actual color names).

*Nordic parka - Love in both colors! It actually reminds me a lot of my
Canada Goose Trillium Parka

*Regent blazer in red houndstooth plaid - I'm not really a fan of the Regent Blazer silhouette, but the red houndstooth is very lovely...imagine having a Bella jacket done in it!

*Tippi leopard sweater - I actually owned the original version from several years ago, sold it during a closet purge, and have regretted that decision ever since

*Pre-order Collection abstract fair isle sweater - Love the color, print, and the oversized fit...looks super cozy and warm, too!

*Shrunken boy shirt in misty forest plaid - Always love me a new plaid shirt to put in to rotation, and the colors on this one are some of my faves.


*Collection silk and lace blouse - Absolutely stunning! This would be a lovely piece to wear to a Christmas party.

*Collection suede shell top - Love this piece! Of course sleeveless is always tricky during the winter, but I'm sure I could figure something out. It would actually have been perfect for the weather we've had over the past couple of weeks.

*Thomas Mason® stewart plaid shirt - I have a similar shirt from several years ago that J.Crew offered, but it is starting to fade, and even feels a bit tight through the shoulders, so a new version in my wardrobe would be welcome. Not to mention that Thomas Mason® is known for their excellent quality and workmenship.

*Rayner wide-leg jean in black - I have always loved the look of a wide-leg pant, especially when the shorter versions are worn over knee boots.

*Fireside plaid scarf - Absolutely adorable in both colors.

*Collins tortoise loafers - So pretty, and a great way to give a bit of visual interest to your outfit.

*Clustered crystal necklace - This is quite pretty, and not too bold or overbearing, either. It would be lovely worn during Holiday Festivities, too.

*Crystal burst earrings - Love the 'vintage' vibe of this pair.

So that's about it for me, as far as the new arrivals at J.Crew go. What are your picks from the latest additions? Anything in particular that you have your eye on, or that you've placed an order for already? Please do share...I always love to hear from you! :)



**Looks like there's also an Extra 40% Off Final Sale items at J.Crew...click here to shop that deal.

***On another note, I shared a little bit about my Montana small town living and online shopping
in this post...stop by to say hello and share your thoughts. :)
