Under $50

LED candles (AA and AAA battery powered) // Sherpa jacket // Black lanterns // Vacuum // Smart TV and mounting

We have a fun family tradition called gift exchange night.  It started with my family as a child.  As my siblings and I got married with kids our exchange night turned into quite the event.  We would all meet at Oakbrook Mall, near Chicago, draw names and give each other a gift limit.  As the years progressed, it got harder and harder to do the gift exchange at the mall.  Sticking to our price limit was a huge challenge.

We then moved away from my family and no longer could carry on the tradition with the extended family, but we started making it a night for our immediate family.  With young kids, we couldn’t do this at the mall so we moved the gift exchange to Walmart.  It is a perfect place for the gift exchange.  There is something for everyone.  Reid loves workout stuff, so Brooks found him a jump rope.  Brooks loves golf, so Mathias found him a new golf hat.  I love anything for the home and Levi bought me a cool star fish and shell for my console table.  Everything was $10 and under!

We have so much fun running around the store and finding something within the limit but also meaningful to that person.  We then rush home and without even wrapping anything, we sit in the living room and starting with the youngest, we exchange our gifts.  It’s a really sweet time.  You must see the video of Levi giving me my starfish.  His face was precious.

With the inspiration of the starfish, I expanded my home décor even more from Walmart.  I found LED “flame” candles and a couple black lanterns.  The LED candles really warm up the living room and dress up the space for both Christmas and throughout the year.  With the fun of decorating, I’m motivated to clean.  With the new beach house, we’ve been needing a new vacuum.  We found this one at Walmart and it has been perfect for our wood floors and soaking up all the sand.

As we love our gift exchange night and making memories, I hope you try this tradition for yourselves.  Check out Walmart and all the meaningful gifts you can find for every budget. I’m thankful our family gift giving will carry into life long lessons of thoughtfulness. We plan on doing this throughout the year to remind ourselves to think of others.

This week has been kitchen install so I’m exhausted but excited for two things: the kitchen to be done and Fall layers!!

Walmart has some of the cutest looks! I’m loving their white jean flares, brown sweater cardigan, and a red lip to finish it off. How cute does brown and red look together?

While Christmas is 29 days away, no worries, Nordstrom has some great gift ideas from $50! I am happy to report that contactless curbside pick up was a breeze and it even came with a free coffee or hot chocolate. I really liked the option to pick up in store as sometimes I need something RIGHT AWAY and can’t wait. My team scoured the Nordstrom site to find only our top favorites under $50. Here’s why we chose them:
I am living in these joggers, I bought them in black and I’m on day 3. Guilty as charged. Now, I want them in dark gray as well. After all, 2020 is the year of the jogger.
This robe is as fluffy IRL as it looks online. The faux fur trim on the hood and interior is sooo soft. While I don’t really use the hood, I feel like ice princess when I wear it, and the kids give me extra hugs because it is THAT soft. Win-win.
If you’re looking for a quality slip-on slippers without the hype or weird fit, look to none other than this $44 pair. Reid almost stole them tonight as I watched him tell me he needs another new pair. Yes, we can share shoes, thats for another blog post!
This bra was in my cart for 5 hot seconds before it was sold out again. It made it to the top 10 because ALL my blogger friends swear by it, its on sale, and that’s why its sold out again! Crazy. I’m going to try and hope for a re-stock. I like the “bronzed” color.
I got so many compliments on this red beanie when I wore it in Omaha to visit my in-laws. There is something about a pop of red, and did I mention its $29?
The Wubby fleece pullover is that perfect pullover to wear after you ate 3 too many slices of pumpkin pie and want to watch the last scene from Love Actually. Comfy and under $40. Bam!
$40 Dog tag necklace, a perfect stocking stuffer for young and old, sold!

Happy Fall!! This is by far my favorite season to dress for.
I met Angela Lanter in LA a couple years ago! She has since moved to TN, but we still have a lot in common, we are moms who like affordable and accessible fashion. Today, we styled this $28 poncho and $50 boots that look like Isabel Marant. Even though were on opposite sides of the US, we are joining forces to style these boots and poncho two ways.
See her blog here for more!
This poncho has arm hoes and is a whopping $28! No, that is not a typo. What do you think, which look is your favorite?
Thank you Angela for partnering today, see both our looks on instagram today!

$35 Pants 4 Ways

by Shalice Noel

Happy Friday! I’m sharing a couple outfits I shared on my IGTV. I was struck how versatile and cute these tan pants are!

Tan Pants under $35 // Turtleneck on sale! // Leopard Belt // Belt similar // Coatigan // Snakeskin Heels // Sneakers similar // Wrap top in size small // Pearl Sandals sold out // Black turtleneck // Leather jacket and similar under $100 // Black Camisole // Fendi Bag

“I don’t need any more versatile pants in my closet,” said nobody ever. Seriously. We can all use pants that have a thousands uses, and these pants fit the bill! I styled them 4 ways to show you just how versatile they are, and to give you a few ideas to get you started. Life has a way of getting busy. For us, it’s gymnastics, on the way to piano, a little Spanish to make things interesting and tutoring on the side. With all that going on, easy outfits are a must. Plus, there is the extra benefit of that super-low cost-per-wear thing that happens with versatile pieces. You’re welcome.
