J.Crew Factory Skirted Dress Coat + December Shopping Ban

I saw this coat at J.Crew Factory when it wasn't on sale and couldn't justify the $200+ price tag, even though I know that J.Crew is a quality brand and the coat would last me years. Then black Friday happened.. and well, you know the rest...

I got a 00 Regular. I've never gotten a coat from J.Crew before so I wasn't sure what size I would be. This actually fits like a glove! I'm so happy I got it and even though I wanted the bright blue (they were sold out) this color looks great in person and It's a neutral so I can wear it with anything!

Lets also talk about the leggings I'm wearing. They're fleece. I wore them last week during one of the colder days (it was around 30 degrees... brrr) but they really kept me warm! I got mine at and they're for sale right now (here)! (complete coincidence) There are also similar pairs out there.. I linked a few pairs below.
I didn't think that I could wear leggings in the winter without freezing my butt off but these are SOO much warmer than traditional leggings!

PS. I went a tad crazy Black Friday shopping...I got ALL of my Christmas shopping done (which NEVER happens before the week before Christmas...) so I'm proud of myself :)
I did a little me shopping too... Check out all the stuff I got below.

That being said... I'm putting myself on a shopping ban, the whole month of December I will not spend a dime (unless its something I REALLY need, like REALLY...) I've been spending way too much money and I need to stop. 
You can join me if you want.. Misery loves company, so lets be miserable not spending money together!

Necklace: Bauble Bar Buy Here

I have been on the hunt for the perfect emerald blouse since Boyfriends mom wore one for Christmas a few years ago. Green is not a color I would've thought to wear for christmas but the color is so rich and pretty, I'm now a green Christmas convert.

Anywho, my search ended this past weekend while shopping at Banana Republic Factory Store. 
There it hung, in all it's emerald glory... calling me to it... The price tag read $49 (direct quote from me: "If I stare at it long enough maybe it will go on sale..." true story, guys)  
Turns out I had a 40% off coupon and Boyfriend was kind enough to buy it for me (he's cool like that). I didn't try it on in-store but when I got home and tried it on I knew it, emerald blouse and I would be best friends :)

Moral of the story- GO BUY THIS BLOUSE!!! It is perfect in every way and I wish there was a link I could give you guys but I can't, so RUN don't walk to your nearest Banana Factory store!

Are you buying any emerald pieces this season?
I'd love to hear what you got!

Happy shopping!

Ring in...


Rings 1 & 4 are from My Jewelry Box. I was looking through the site and I saw this opal ring, and I realized that opal is possibly one of my favorite stones because it has hints of one of my favorite colors... MINT! It would go perfectly with the pastel trends going on!  As for the Sapphire Promise Ring, you all should know by now that I love the bright blue color that sapphire offers, and this ring is so different I decided that I need it...
Ring 2 is Stella & Dot I've seen this set in a few places and I've always loved the simplicity of them.. Wish listed- CHECK!
Rings 3 & 7 are LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's. I haven't been to Kohl's in a while, nor have I looked online, but I decided to look and, boy, am I glad I did! So many cute and affordable designs!
Ring 5... I've been seeing this Gigglosophy ring EVERYWHERE... I've seen it so much, yes, I've decided that I need it.. It is true, if you see something enough you want it- well played marketing team, well played.
and finally, ring 6. I've had my eye on this Chloe + Isabel ring since my giveaway a few months back. It was sold out at the time but now its back... Isn't it pretty :)

Which ring is your favorite??

As always, thanks for reading! :)
