Trending 11.8.2016

I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since my last Trending report! I found some items I just HAD to share! Time for what's #trending in my world. [author's note: just realized this post is super plaid/tartan-heavy! hahah! 'tis the season!]

[1.0] OMG. These tartan monogrammed gloves. I am hyperventilating over these. Currently on sale! Wouldn't they make the perfect stocking stuffer for your sister/cousin/bestie?

[2.0] This festive pleated midi skirt from Express. I LOVE the green and red. Holiday parties, anyone? It comes in black, too, for a polished and practical work staple.

[3.0] This ruffle front henley from Loft.
How cute would that be tucked into a red skirt? Or paired with red skinnies? I actually just bought it in red, and it fits so fabulously! I wore it over black skinny crops when I still had my brace on, but I will re-wear it tucked into jeans for the weekend.

[4.0] My future dressier winter coat from J. Crew Factory.
I have another version of this coat without the hood from a few years ago. It is SO WARM, even without a hood, so I cannot imagine how cozy it will be with a furry hood! I am watching the red one for major sales! I've seen it dip as low as $160. There is an identical J. Crew version of it for $400. #NOPE

[5.0] This Lululemon Scuba hoody in navy.
I've been looking for a navy zip-up for Fridays at work, and this fits the bill! I have had several Scuba hoodies over the years, and they are ridiculously warm and cozy. The hood is epic, too. It literally zips all around your head and ears. Amaze!

[6.0] This Holiday Tartan Ruffle dress for every. single. holiday. event. you have in the books!
Vineyard Vines' Holiday Tartan looks amazing on this vest and this Shep shirt. I love all three! Here is a less expensive (but equally adorbs) version from J. Crew Factory.

[7.0] This J. Crew lace peplum top (loving the magenta!).
It will be perfect with dark, skinny jeans and black pumps for the weekend. Pair it with a tailored blazer for workday wear.

[8.0] My sweet galpal, Taryn, from Pure Barre left this link on my Facebook wall. IT HAD TO BE MINE!  I ordered it, and a few days later it arrived! Emi Jay has adorable graphic tees/tanks/sweatshirts that are one size fits all. They're SUPER comfy and look fab with a strappy, bright sports bra. I'm on week 2/4 of physical therapy, but I'll be back to the barre soon enough! Can't wait to wear this and reunite with my girls.

[9.0] Are you in need of a top to wear for Christmas? Or for Christmas pics with the fam? Look no further! Anna, Ashley-- want to wear these on Christmas? I am like 99.9% serious. HAHA! To match Finn???

I am biased toward loving navy as a Wildcat and former Belle, but seriously, this ruffle and that navy!! For all seasons.

I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.
Are you loving the warmer temps, or are you ready for cozy sweaters?
