Girls Night In with Marshalls

Sam Edelman Top and Booties, Wax-coated Skirt - c/o Marshalls

I was challenged by Marshalls to plan a fun night in. Initially I was thinking of coffee with Nick, but that's something we already to and I wanted to do something different. I went to Marshalls with the plan to buy cozy blankets and pillows for a movie night, but then I discovered a bunch of amazing wooden serving trays and platters. They were such amazing quality and one in particular caught my eye- a thick, raw wood platter with a leather handle. I totally thought it was going to cost a fortune, but when I flipped it over I discovered it was only $14.99. My idea for a movie night in turned into girls night out (well technically in, but you know what I mean!). I thought I would create an amazing charcuterie board and add some yummy treats found in the snack aisle. And yes, there's a snack aisle at Marshalls, and yes, it's awesome. Some of them didn't make it home because Uriah and I ate them while shopping -- we needed fuel! With the money I saved on serving trays and snacks, I picked up some fancy stemless glasses. The festive gold dipped bottom will be perfect for the holidays and dresses up the simplest drink! And at only $19.99 these glasses were hardly a splurge! So I narrowed my list down of what I needed: serving platters, check! pretty glasses, check! yummy snacks, check! I realized I needed some plates for everyone to put food on and found the perfect set of mini olive printed plates for only $7.99. Not only are they the perfect size, but they matched so well with everything else I had in my cart. We made our way to the register and spotted some gold foiled printed napkins to finish the dinner party accessories and tie in all the colors. I was so excited to enjoy a fun night with a few girlfriends- it was full of great conversation, lots of laughs, delicious food, and of course, a stylish spread that didn't break the bank!

All Black

Top- Marshalls 
Bag- c/o Marshalls
Studded Jeans- Crossroads
Umbrella- Nick
Heels- Target

 There's something so cool about all black- it's totally chic, always in style, and a universally flattering color! When I really want to make a statement, instead of reaching for colors, I always style an all black look because that makes a statement without being in your face with patterns and colors. I mixed up the textures by adding these studded jeans; they look like polka dots, but they're really silver studs, cool huh? I have a cozy home post coming Friday so stay tuned!

Entire outfit - c/o Mashalls

Remember last month when I talked about going to New York, well these photos are from the first day of my shoot with Marshalls. This was my absolute favorite outfit and the only reason I took it off is because it was over 90 degrees out, otherwise I would have worn it all day. We shot these at a beautiful location - Grants Tomb. Such amazing architecture and the prettiest tree lined walkways-- if the clothes weren't so amazing the location might have overshadowed it ;)

I can't wait to recreate this look many, many times this fall/winter. 
The best part about capes is that you are literally wearing a blanket and calling it fashion..does it get better than that?! Check out Marshalls for some of these amazing items, like the Free People jeans I have on that were only $19.99 and fit like a glove. I already picked them up in another color (olive), because at a price like that-how can you say no?
