Dressed up Denim & a Cyber Monday Sale Roundup

And it’s Monday morning after a 5 day weekend. 
The struggle is real! 
At least we’re all waking up to go back into the real world wearing all of our fabulous fashion finds from the recent Black Friday sales, right? (Or were you holding off until Cyber Monday to shop? If so … head to the bottom of this post for a round up of savings!) 
It being November 30th, it’s safe to say that this is the time of year that it’s finally starting to feel like legitimate fall weather in Houston. 
Which calls for lots & lots of plaid. (& an outfit that’s mostly on sale today thanks to Cyber Monday!)

I’ve teamed up with True Religion today to share a dressed up (but still casual) denim look. 
{PS: True Religion is celebrating Cyber Monday with up to 40% off the entire site!) 
For the past week I’ve been GUSHING about these jeans. (Currently on MEGA sale) If you aren’t lucky enough to have a brick & mortar True Religion in your area, hopefully you have a Nordstrom, because you can purchase these exact jeans (Halle Super Skinny) there too! 
{They’re also available online … but as most of us know, sometimes it’s easier to jean shop in the actual store.}
I have to say, these super skinnies do fit true to size.  There is ample stretch too! (Which is lovely … especially the week after Thanksgiving!) I’ve already washed them once & hung them to dry – without noticing a change whatsoever in their shape.  
Now to get a pair in every color … 😉 
What you might not know about True Religion is that they offer much more than just jeans. 
Plaid shirts and fringe purses for example! 
Please don’t ever let fringe bags go out of style, fashion police, because I truly don’t think I could ever part with my growing collection.  
(I know what I like, apparently!) 

Black heels to go with my black fringe purse give my casual look an extra oomph – and make it ready for an evening with friends.

Something like this is perfect for a casual dinner at a friend’s house or an impromptu weekend get together.  You look all dressed up with the heels, but your look is “perfectly laid back” at the same time.

And now it’s time to talk about Cyber Monday! Which is the lazy girls version of Black Friday.  Or actually … I should say, the smart girl’s guide to Black Friday! I mean who realllllly likes leaving their house to deal with those crowds?! Not I!

Take a peek at some of the sales I’m eyeing below:

  • Amazon: Too many deals to list! But the Kindle Fire HD6 for $69 is a gooood one! 
  • Boden: 30% off & free shipping
  • Henri Bendel: 30% off site wide up to 50% off sale (go get you that purse, girl!) 
  • Topshop: Up to 50% off select items 
As if you need a little more shopping inspiration, some of my favorite items (all on major sale) are linked below: 

In other news, it’s off to the office for me! One cup of coffee down, and several more to go! Happy Cyber Monday!

  • True Religion is my favorite jean. I would love to see you style some Joeys or other flare jeans from the brand. I wish they had more options in these type of jeans. I also wish they had some Swarovski crystal options again. It was the perfect amount of bling. Not too over-the-top. You look wonderful!!

  • What a fun fall outfit and I'm with you on the fringe bag. I'll carry mine to the grave so don't go out of style!
