Tory Burch Holiday Sale

tory burch
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9
Today I am sharing my Holiday pics with Tory Burch. Tory Burch has the most timeless, classic bags that will forever be in style. If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know I am a HUGE fan of Tory Burch. Their construction is superb and every year they come out with the most beautiful colors. I recently got the York Crossbody with a TB Holiday Card they sent me. I ADORE this bag and the this shade of green could not be more perfect for the holidays! What is even better is that the price point is under $250. I may just have to get this pink one too.

Today is the beginning of their Holiday Sale!

Below is one way I styled my new York Cross body this past weekend. I got this coat YEARS ago from Banana Republic, but I have listed a few similar options at the bottom of the post. 

COAT old (love this, this(on sale!) and this) | TOP Kiki La Rue c/o (runs big size down) (love this and this) | JEANS DSTLD c/o | SCARF Loft (love this ) | BAG Tory Burch York Crossbody (love!!!)

Cozy Holiday

SWEATER White Plum c/o (SO cozy!) (love this dress) | BLAZER old (love this and this) | JEANS Vigoss c/o (love!) (love these ($26!)and these ($26!)) | HEELS Christian Louboutin (love these) | CLUTCH Clare V  | SCARF Gap LY (similar, love this and this

Today I have a holiday look with White Plum. This ruffle back sweater is not only adorable, it is super cozy and the perfect color pallet for the holidays. You will want to pour a cup of hot chocolate and sit by the fire (that's what I did haha.)  I paired it with a blazer and scarf, but it would be cute without the blazer too. The jeans I am wearing are my new favorites. Vigoss has always been my go to budget friendly denim and this new design is more comfortable than any pair I own. 

White Plum is having some exciting sales this Friday. Come back friday for my complete round up and a fun post I have been working on for the past couple weeks! 

Sale Alert!
Nordstrom just put SO many items 40% off! Perfect timing for those shopping for gifts before the big rush! Shop a few of my favorites below.

Great Gifts!

#weekendwear (Giveaway)

OVERSIZED PLAID JACKET Lulus c/o (size down!) (love this and this) | DRESS old (very similar, love this too) | BOOTS Ivanka Trump c/o on sale! (love these and this flat version) | HAT Maude (love this and obsessed with this green one) | BAG Tory Burch (similar (on sale!)and this) | 

I think its time to change the blog name to Tartan Plaid Tara haha. But really, I think I have become quite obsessed this season. I adore this over sized jacket from Lulus. I typically shy away from things that are really oversized, but I love the volume of this piece. I paired it with a sleek black dress and my favorite over the knee boots. I topped my look off (literally) with this amazing red hat from Maude. I have the hardest time finding hats to fit me and was thrilled when this one slipped right on. 

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and Happy Thanksgiving week!
xoxo Tara

Weekend Stroll..

JACKET Joa via Lulus c/o (Runs Big, size down)| SWEATER Gap (love this and this) | SKIRT J Crew (love this (size down!) | BAG Tory Burch Fleming (love this and this) | BOOTS Mia (similar) | SUNGLASSES Karen Walker Super Duper

Today I am sharing a fun look with Lulus I have had my eye on this JOA jacket for months. I have been loving pastels this season and of course I am a plaid fanatic. I love how this jacket doubles as a coat. It is thick, yet not too bulky. I paired it with a pink sweater and my favorite ivory J Crew skirt. I plan on wearing it with distressed skinnies and a grey tunic for a more casual look. 

I hope you are having a great weekend! We are supposed to get some rain, which means I will be snuggling with my baby girl and watching Christmas movies... to early? ; )

xoxo Tara
