Thanksgiving is right around the corning, kicking off the holiday season. On our schedule, Kendall and I have a wedding that Saturday, one of my bridal showers, my office holiday party, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. That’s at least five festive looks that need to be accompanied by some holiday frosting. Bling girls, glitter.

Besides my birthday, this is the time of year that is officially sparkle season, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. My advice for holiday style on a budget- start with a black velvet dress and stock up on fun accessories to change the look so you can wear it at least twice for the season. The same black dress is going to look totally different with heels vs boots and a cardi vs a leather jacket, depending on the occasion.

I’ve been especially into statement earrings recently, which look super pretty with up-dos for those fancier occasions. I wouldn’t really chunk a big necklace with big earrings or a big bracelet with a big ring. Too much bling all in one place can look overdone, but if that’s what you’re going for you do you boo!

What’s your favorite accessory for the holidays?

Halloween is over and November is here! Last night was kind of funny- Kendall started a journey back again to Mississippi for drill and because it was Tuesday most of my friends were either meh about Halloween or had after work plans. SO I put on a onesie and headed to Chipotes for a $3 burrito bol and then it took me three hours to write this blog post because tired and bol coma.

So here we are. Happy November!

the carolove november wish list

My friend was wearing MAC Turquatic Fragrance at a birthday happy hour last week. It smelled AMAZE and I stalked it like the night I got home.

Surprise surprise, my Charlotte Russe perforated booties are totally falling apart after a year and change. Time for an upgrade- perhaps Vince Camuto Kamey Perforated Booties.

I don’t know if I could ever have enough fuzz in my life. I have a great leopard (faux, obvs.) fur coat- pink fuzz may be next on my list, like this MELODY Faux-Fur Coat.

Seeing as how we watched Strangers Things 2 in, what, 2 days? This Netflixing Definition Sweatshirt seems appropes.

I’m not a huge makeup buff, really. But that doesn’t stop me from eyeing pretty things like the new line from MAC, especially the MAC Snow Ball Face Powder.

Holidays are coming (YUP! ALREADY!) which means it’s like 2 months worth of party paws. Check this Deborah Lippmann Glitter Nail Color in Candy Shop.

Kinda just want this ALTERNATIVE Camo Sweater Dress to wear with my thigh high boots.

I’ve been doing some research on chakras and while I’m usual drawn to all things root chakra, it seems like my sacral chakra in in a little bit of imbalance. I feel like I should try 2nd Chakra Balancing Oil.

These Tassel Earrings look a helluva lot like a brand we all know and love… but they’re under $10.

I’m already feelin’ the season’s chapped lips. Enter VASELINE Limited Edition Pink Bubbly Lip Therapy. (Incidentally, I found this one a Millennial Pink list)

What do you have planned for this November?

Target is bae and has been bae since my mom and sister came home from a weekend shopping trip like 15 year ago with wild stories of a store with an escalator just for carts. When I was in college, my mom gave me a Target card because they had everything I could need and they were also far superior to Walmart. Cheese? They got it. Sundress? Check! Storage ottoman? YOU BETCHA! And now you can add discount BaubleBar to the mix with SUGARFIX, the sweetest jewelry collab, only at Target.

I checked out SUGARFIX the last time I was in a Target and was overall very pleased with the quality. The chunky statement necklaces were a little lighter than the original BaubleBar brand, but I can’t even say that’s a bad thing. The price is nice- think about half of what you’d expect to spend with BaubleBar- and a lot of it is on clearance PLUS 20% off clearance with the code SAVE20. ALSO- you can earn cashback shopping SUGARFIX by BaubleBar with ebates!

Happy Friday! Week two down at the new job and I finally am starting to feel settled. Wedding plans have been coming along nicely and my Etsy card is filling up as I find fun details for our special day. I keep dreaming that it’s the big day but nothing is done yet and honestly, between Kendall’s eagerness to plan, my awesome mom, my team of ‘maids, and the fact that I’ve been planning this day forever~ I’ll be fiiiiine.

I also wanted to say thank you again for the amazing support I got on my post about siblings who have lost siblings. I have amazing people in my life who have shown nothing but openness and understanding. Thank you, thank you, for checking out my little slice of the world and letting me totally show my soul.

Climbing Earrings

Lately on The CaroLøve:

There have been some GREAT blog posts from other amazing ladies this week:

Dana talked engagement and why it matters. This is great for both bloggers and people trying to understand bloggers.

Alissa described my. exact. issues. with clothes. It’s hard to be short and curvy and have a big bust and find clothes that fit. It feels like most of the time that clothes are both too big and too small at the same time. It’s great that for this post she’s wearing almost the red version of my engagement dress.

I don’t consider myself a bridezilla- in fact on of my bridesmaids’ mom thanked me for naht being that. Am I super excited and in total plan mode and maybe a little obnoxious? Absolutely. But there is one thing that will make me rage. Shell’s post says it all: DO {CLAP} NOT {CLAP} WEAR {CLAP} WHITE {CLAP} to a wedding that is not yours. Do not wear white adjacent colors to a wedding that is not yours (unless the brides makes you wear an ivory gown as her bridesmaid). If you have to ask if the dress is appropriate, DON’T WEAR IT. I’m saying this to anyone who is coming to my own wedding: my Auntie Steph + Tiffy will kick you TF out. I have been in/ involved in so many weddings and that day is my day. End rant. Love you. ‘Zilla moment over.

I’m on of those crazy people who is holding my breath waiting for fall. Groopdealz already has a great selection for Halloween!

J. Crew Factory is having an extra 50% off clearance sale. But it’s in stores only– so get to one!

TJ Maxx has a new online department: lingerie!

Mini Bags are back (or did they ever go away?) and Henri Bendel has some of the cutest lil thangs I’ve ever seen!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I could not be more thrilled that Stella & Dot, my favorite jewelry retailer, now offers adorable tops. The tops are mostly solid, offering a blank canvas to doll up with their jewelry and other accessories. Although I’m not really a Stella & Dot stylist (I haven’t made it a business~ you can check out my post on that here), I fancy myself a bit of a freelance stylist anyway with my blog, and wanted to show some of the Stella & Dot combos I love..

The best thing about the new Stella & Dot tops is that they’re mostly work appropriate for business casual. Since it’s a brand I already love and have been wearing for years, I can’t wait to try out the clothing!

My personal style leans towards a solid top with a really funky necklace. I’ve created two different all Stella & Dot looks with that style in mind.

Evie Lace Knit Tee||Riva Tassel Earrings||Leyla Charm Necklace||Mini Pouch – Embroidered Lashes


Bianca Knit Tee||Fringe Tassel Earrings||Bora Fringe Necklace||Bowery Versatile Belt Bag
