With a few more hours in my week for posting it is high time to revive the Friday Favorites post!  This is a random post where I share all the things I’m currently loving (and buying).  They may or may not be related to shoes and fashion but I promise they are always fun (or useful)!!  I also include a weekend sales round-up (with what I bought) because who doesn’t love a good sale!!  #NoOne

Friday Favorites

I’m currently loving COLORFUL leopard.  Especially in cobalt blue or burgundy.  I just can’t seem to get enough.  I’m drooling over everything LEO Red in the Anine Bing Fall Collection.  There are sweaters, dresses, scarfs, skirts … I want them all!  #NeedABiggerBudget

I blame my colorful leopard obsession on my most recent not-so-budget-friendly sweater purchase (seen wearing here).  Or maybe I blame this other not-so-budget-friendly blouse from the same brand.  I mean how gorgeous would that look with velvet pants and sparkly shoes for the holidays?  To  stave off another budget-buster purchase I instead ordered these fun shoes (also available in original leopard) and this budget friendly sweater.  #IHaveALeopardProblem

More Colorful Leopard

If you agree with the notion that leopard and color are a good mix, below are some more drool-worthy options.  #YourWelcome

Getting Holiday Ready

Friday Favorites My 9 to 5 Shoes my9to5shoes.com

Target already has their Holiday decorations on display and they did a Black Friday Sneak Peek sale yesterday.  Nordstrom just released their Holiday gift guides.  I may not be quite ready to acknowledge what the rest of the the world is saying but … the Holidays ARE coming.   One of my favorite things this time of year is all the fabulous Beauty Sets.  I give Nordstrom beauty sets as gifts but I also always purchase a few for myself.  This Clinique ($25) one and this Bobbi Brown one ($39) are already in route to my house for my own Holiday getting ready needs! #GoGlam

This year Nordstrom also added a selection of Advent Calendars into the mix of sets.  We get Lego ones every year for the boys but these beauty ones are amazing!!  I’m picking up one each of the Clarins and L’Occitane for myself as well as getting a few extra for unexpected guests or hostess gifts.  #TooUnique

A Little More Love

With the state of our Nation these days, sometimes I feel like all we need is a little more love (or maybe a lot more love) so I’ve been wearing my heart on my sleeve on repeat.  I purchased this sweater last year but it is back in stock and still perfect.  Another reader favorite from the same brand is also back in stock! #BothUnder50
