Bag: Johnston & Murphy | Top: Cotton (dress) | Beanie: BP. | Jeans: Similar | Watch: Larsson & Jennings | Bracelet: Bauble Bar | Shoes: Johnston & Murphy 

I’ll probably sound like a broken record all holiday season letting you know what I think would make good gifts but hey that’s what I am here for! This Italian leather reversible tote has been my favorite grab and go and is so practical! These shoes are also Johnston and Murphy and I have worn them all season long. I am so excited to continue wearing them in the winter since they are one of the comfiest skinny heel booties I own. Johnston and Murphy also has a great selection in shoes, sweaters, etc for guys that would be good picks. I actually ordered Ted’s Christmas gift from them! As for the top, whats funny is it’s actually a dress (dummy me)! I was wondering why it looks so funny in the pictures. I must have put it on, assumed it was a top, and didn’t even think to wear it as a dress since it would have been short. If you prefer it as a dress, I recommend sizing up since I ordered a small and it’s a little tiny as a dress.

Happy hump day babes, thanks for stopping by!

I am going to be honest and let you in on a secret, I haven’t started my cyber week shopping yet. Crazy, I know. I just have been SO busy with family and getting back from our trip that I haven’t had a chance to sit down. One thing I am thankful for is Cyber Monday to be able to finally sit in peace and quite and actually shop!

I have updated this list from Friday to make it easier to shop one post! Be sure to click on the links to take you directly to the store. I shared on snapchat over the weekend items I had that were on sale and it went really well! I am hoping to share a few more on snapchat today so be sure to follow along: dederaad

Don’t forget, I am giving LOTS of gift guide ideas above in the “Holiday Shop”  tab in case you are in a rut about what to get your mother in law, brother, etc.

Yall, I can go on and on and on about how grateful I am. Every time I travel I gain a new perspective on life and my mind starts racing. We just got back from a very random trip from Santiago, Chile (where these photos where taken) and we are headed right to our Thanksgiving gatherings.  I can’t tell you how grateful I am for my family (Hubs and Sister above), my friends, my little space on the internet, good health, etc etc. What I do want to spend time telling you all is how thankful I am for you all. For taking the time to stop by everyday and support Dress Up Buttercup. Every comment, every email, every direct message, every outfit question or just sharing an outfit that I helped inspire, really does make my day and I can’t thank you all enough. Being able to connect with so many of you all on a daily basis is the best part about blogging. I AM SO THANKFUL FOR YOU!

On another note, with thanksgiving comes TONS of sales. Some sales have already started so I wanted to share a few below. I always get so overwhelmed with Black Friday sales that I usually just try to avoid it then I super regret it after the sales are done. I always think will better sales come on Cyber Monday? Should I wait or will it sell out? I have seen a few sneak peeks into cyber Monday sales and trust me, they all are pretty much the same. I will be sure to do a HUGE Cyber Week post tomorrow and will be updating it through out the week.

As a thank you for this season, I will be doing a giveaway tomorrow until Cyber Monday and I am so excited for it. See you tomorrow bright and early for the best Cyber Week sales!

Oh & about the outfit real quick: Neutrals in the winter have been my jam. I love wearing all white and I think I wear this tank every other day and is on sale for $15 stinking dollars. I highly recommend snatching it during the sale since it’s the perfect staple item. I also LIVED in this cardigan on the trip and was so cozy. It’s like wearing a robe out of your house but socially acceptable. It’s also currently on major sale and comes in 2 colors. I used it as a blanket on our trip back this morning and loved it. Oh and these comfy booties are also on sale and these sunnies are apart of the Shopbop sale.
