Elbow Patches (and the BEST Cyber Monday Sales!)

I love elbow patch details-whether they are on a cute jacket or cardi-I am always a fan!  And when they are in tandem with stripes?  Forget about it!  It’s also an added bonus when your bag matches the berries on the bushes you are shooting in front of! 🙂

And if you didn’t get your shopping fix over the weekend, don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of the post for a complete list of coupon codes and sales happening for Cyber Monday!!!!! I’m also announcing the winners of the R+F Skincare giveaway-thank you to everyone who entered!!

Booties

Today, I want to talk about booties.  They are everywhere this season and I am absolutely in love with the trend.  BUT I’ll be honest, I find booties very difficult to wear.  I workout and bike and ski a lot, so I don’t have super skinny legs.  I’m also short (not quite 5’4″), so I find that most booties can tend to make me look thick in the legs and even shorter than I already am!  And that is definitely not look I’m going for!  Ha! I’ve tried on countless pairs and always love them on the rack and on other people, but seldom like them on myself.  However, I have finally found the trick to the perfect bootie for all you gals out there who are struggling with this trend like me.  And the secret, my friends? Booties that dip down in the front, or that are a little closer to a pump than a bootie (like the pair in today’s post-a shootie, if you will).  Seriously, I can’t tell you what a difference a little dip in the front will make for you and the length it will give you back in your legs.  So if you have been feeling anything like me when it comes to booties-don’t give up!  I’ve linked up some of my favorite, and (more importantly) flattering booties below!
