Seeing Stars

fuzzy sweater: c/o shein

Oh man.  I said I wouldn't pick another fuzzy sweater, but here we are.  Oops.  It's over-sized, so soft and only $15.  Worth it.   I love the colors on it, and of course that it feels like a blanket. 

workout top: c/o shein    shoes: c/o shein

I love these shoes! I have a lot of actual workout shoes that I love and look cute with leggings, but only one other pair of sneakers that are more fun than the shoes I wear all the time.  I know these is a dupe of the real ones, and did you know those cost over $600? What in the world??? These are WAY cheaper and I've worn them a few times and they're comfortable.   And I can always say that I "need" more workout tops.  Love the color on this one, and would be great for running outside.  Which feels a million months away. 

star hoodie: c/o shein    shoes: c/o shein

This top is definitely my favorite thing from this order.   I wanted to wear the star shoes, but thought that may be just a little much.  I ordered these shoes, as I have been wanting a pair of more high top kind of shoes.  These are perfect.  They have a little bit of fur on the top inside and are only $22. (They run a little small so if you order them go up a size!) 

top: c/o shein

Last is this this top.  Perfect for leggings or jeans and light enough to wear in the spring and summer too.  Plus it's only $15!

A few more December looks . . . .


 cardigan: c/o shein

Fuzziness and leopard print? Feels slightly loud for me, but I like it!  This cardigan is really soft and I love the buttons and the length of it.  


lace cami: c/o shein

I love wearing these under cardigans, and this one is only $12.  And comes in a lot of other colors too. It has adjustable straps which is necessary for these kind of tops for me!

boots: c/o shein

These boots are so cute.  They do run small and my big feet struggle to fit in them, so if you order them I'd suggest ordering a size bigger.   I'm going to deal with the crammed feet because I like them enough.  ; ) 

boots: c/o shein

I've been wanting a pair of over the knee boots but didn't want to spend a lot of money on them because I wasn't sure how much I'd wear them.  But I love these! They are perfect with these leggings and a longer sweater, and if I had them in the Fall I would've worn them with just a dress.  The back has the cutest little bow and they're under $30!

pajamas: c/o shein

For actually pajamas I end up in a soft t-shirt and pair of shorts, but I'm sure like most of us, I put on pajamas the second I am home.  And it has made me happier to have cute matching pajamas.  These ones are only $17 and I love them!

sweater dress: c/o shein

This sweater dress is one size but is quite stretchy, without being baggy.  It is super soft and is under $25.  Plus you can use code Q4forlauren for 15% off anything you order!

I'm off to wrap some more presents! Are you done with your shopping? Wrapping? I'm still in the I love wrapping presents phase and want to finish them before I stop enjoying it!

Slow down!

 sweater: c/o shein

I wore this sweater on Thanksgiving and it is one of my favorites.  It is soft and long enough for leggings and only $22.  Thanksgiving and the day after are my absolute favorite.  We had such a great few days with our family and I wish those days didn't go so fast!  

I can't believe it's only two weeks until Christmas.  I want these weeks to slow down!

Here's few other new looks from shein.  Use code Q4forlauren for 15% off your order!

 sweater: c/o shein

This sweater is only $10!  It is a little itchy but if you wear a t-shirt under it, it felt better.  I love the colors of it.  

 camo tee: c/o shein

This top comes in a few other fun camo prints.  It's long enough to tie at the side, or to probably cover your butt for leggings.  (And is only $16) 

 coat: c/o shein

I kind of hate wearing coats because they're bulky and make me hot, but these are the kind of coats I can handle.  Shorter length and feels more like a big sweatshirt than a jacket.  This one had over 6,000 reviews so I figured it was a safe choice, and I love it!

Hope you have a great start to your week!

SHEIN Cyber Monday

 striped sweater: c/o shein

I think this is my favorite sweater I've ever ordered from shein.  I almost ordered one that looks exactly the same from American Eagle and am glad I didn't.  This one is $20, is the perfect length and is really comfortable. 
turtleneck tunic: c/o shein
Pockets, cozy, leggings length.  Enough said! 
red dress: c/o shein
This dress is really pretty.  I love it with a sweater over it and think I'll wear this for Christmas.  (Plus it's only $18!)

black dress: c/o shein
I picked this out thinking maybe I could wear it for Chris' work party.  I really like it but I definitely need a safety pin or something in the middle.  I love that it has adjustable straps, and it comes in a ton of colors and is only $20.  
polka dot top: c/o shein
This top also comes in a few colors and is only $11.  It's a little longer in the back, which I like and the sleeves are fun!
sweater dress: c/o shein
Another cute sweater dress for $20.  I love it with this scarf ($5 from Old Navy!) and matches the sleeves perfectly.

The only kind of black Friday shopping I'll do (SHEIN Black Friday)

Image Map
 sweater: c/o shein

Are you an out and about Black Friday shopper?  I just have zero desire to be in stores that day. I don't even like to go into stores from now until Christmas because it's so crowded.  Thank goodness for online shopping right? (Or maybe not, because it really feels too easy to just order everything online!)  I got to pick out some new things from Shein and again love all of it.  Starting with this sweater.  I clearly have a consistent color pattern these days.  Give me all the neutrals.  

 sweater: c/o shein

Another super cute sweater.  This one is a little boxier, but does anyway wear anything but high waisted jeans? I love the colors and the wider sleeves.  

 sweater: c/o shein

I wore this sweater for my birthday dinner date, and Chris may have made fun of me for wanting to look like a cheetah, but I never trust his fashion opinion.  I love it and love that I can wear it with leggings or with jeans.  

 top: c/o shein

I normally don't love tops like this because I feel like they aren't the most flattering, but this one had a ton of good reviews, came in a lot of colors and was only $12.  I think it's really cute and think the burgundy or green color would be great for Fall and Winter. 

 sweater: c/o shein

I used to wear leggings and dresses all the time when I was teaching.  Now I just about always wear jeans (the few times I'm not wearing leggings and workout clothes).  But I wanted some longer sweaters that I could wear with leggings and this one is perfect.  

cozy cardigan: c/o shein

Last is this cardigan.  This one had a ton of good reviews and looked so soft.  And it definitely is.  I think I may wear it like a robe over pajamas but I will totally wear it just like this out too.  

Shein has a ton of Black Friday deals and you can use code BF191502 for 15% off anything you order!  
Happy almost Thanksgiving!
