Welcome Bougie Babes!


If you are a fan of Anthropologie like I am you know that every so often they put their sale items on sale for an additional 40% off. Now is one of those times my Bougie Babes! I often do a haul during these sales because you can get so much bang for your buck. Here is what I am shopping this go round.

Puff Sleeve Denim Bomber Jacket

Regularly $128 Now $47.97

This denim jacket totally reminds me of jackets from the 80s. The 80s is remembered for some outlandish fashion choices, but I love the bold shoulders and details from this over the top era. The bow detail on the sleeves adds to the feminity of this jacket. I can't wait to rock this jackets with skirts and over dresses.

Pleated Wide-Leg Courduroy Trousers

Regularly $148 Now $53.97

I find wide leg trousers to be so flattering on my figure. What I love about these pants is they can be dressed down with sneakers and a sweatshirt or up with boots and a blouse or sweater. I like how they styled the trousers here with the layered tops and sneakers too. It gives that effortlessly chic look. I can see myself pairing these trousers with one of my handknit sweaters!

Collette Metallic Maxi Skirt

Regularly $138 Now $53.97

Metallic silver is definitely having a moment right now and this skirt fits perfectly into the trend. This skirt will easily make any outfit shine. It's giving big main charecter energy for sure! I also love how they style this look with the tall black boots and a black top. I will probably do the same or add in some bright jewel tones as well. I can't wait to add this to my wardrobe!

Deep V Lace Body Suit

Regularly $98 Now $35.97

During one of the earlier Anthropologie sales this year I got a couple of lace layering tops and I am hear to tell you I have been wearing them non-stop! I think they go so well as a layering piece with so many of my outfits. This time I ordered this body suit version in black and red. I love the V neck line on this one and I plan to wear them with a lacey bra or bralette. I think denim and lace is a great combo like they styled it here.

The Maya Ruched Cowl-Neck Lace Edition

Regularly $160 Now $59.97

Ya'll, I think I'm in my lace era. I shopped another lace piece! This dress looks so chic and elegant. I think Anthro again nailed the styling. I can also see myself making it a little less feminine and a little more edgy with Dr Martens or Frye boots and my metallic jacket. However it is styled I think this is another winner!

I hope you enjoyed my little list and I hope if you are in the market for some new clothes or gifts for the holidays you take advantage of these deep markdowns available now through Sunday. If you miss the sale Black Friday is around the corner too and Anthro Insiders has already promised a sale!

As a self-proclaimed autumn enthusiast, I have to admit that nothing quite beats the snap of chilly air, the aroma of pumpkin spice everything, and the endless outfit opportunities that come with the season. If you're looking to jazz up your wardrobe with minimal effort, then sprucing up your shoe game is the way to go! And, let me tell you, Ugg's latest lineup has me feeling like a kid in a candy store. Not gonna lie, I've already added four pairs to my wishlist (okay, fine, I could have gone all Ugg, all the time). So, without further ado, here are my top picks for the season, guaranteed to keep me stylin' and cozy for years to come!

Frye is such a classsic shoe company it's no wonder they have been around since 1863. The quality

of their boots is just top tier and these Frye Harness 8R are no exception. The leather is top quality and just gets softer and seems to mold to your feet as you wear them. At $458 these boots are the mostexpensive on the list, but the style is timeless and you will be able to reach for them year after year.

When I envisioned my Fall activities like going to grab a PSL, the yarn store and the apple festival I saw myself in cozy, warm shoes with a wide-leg sweatsuit or jeans and a fuzzy sweater.When I saw the fuzzy teddy bear like texture of there Uggs I knew I had to have them. I am really feeling platforms and you can’t beat the slipper like feel of the Tazz. I am normally a 8.5. I went with an 8 in these (I usually size down in Uggs) but I think a 9 would have worked too with fluffy socks.

On Wednesdays we wear pink. Where they do that at because I am obsessed with pink and have to literally stop myself from wearing it daily. I love the light pink color on these because they wear like a neutral. If you don’t wear a lot of color the perfect place to add some color is with your footwear. New Balance are so comfortable and the platform just adds that extra oomph that a bougie girl loves.

When I showed these to my niece she said “it’s giving Holland.” And yes, they are giving Holland in the best possible way though. They are so comfortable and warm. I got them in red, but they also come in black and chestnut. Red is the color of the season and it is another one of my favorite colors so I had to go with the ‘cherry pie” in these.

When I saw these shoes I audible gasped. There are three things I loved at first sight about these shoes, the black and white coloring, the buckled back, and you guessed it, the platform. Then I got the shoes and there was one more thing to love about them, they are comfortable right out of the box with a soft leather inside that felt great with no socks. I think I’d wear these almost year round because you can add socks in the fall and winter and go sock-less on warmer days.

Those cables tho! As a knitter I saw these and in addition to wanting to make a sweater with that cable pattern I also wanted to get them immediately! I Remember the classic cardy Uggs from back in the day? I used to love those and I think the Sweater Letter tall are the perfect updated version of them. I am a thick girl and these are definitely wide calf friendly. But they would also work well if you have tiny calves because the top is stretchy and hug your calves. It was finally chilly enough to wear these here in Maryland this weekend and I am in love. They are so warm and cozy I am definitely going to get my money’s worth out of these. These also come in black.

Unlike most Uggs these clogs don’t have a sheepskin lining, but that takes nothing away from the comfort and coziness of the Goldenstar clog. They are like Birkenstock Boston and Crocs had a baby. A cute, adorable Australian baby. the back strap can also be moved to the front just like Crocs.They come in chestnut and black. These are another pair that I think will be highly comfortable and reached for day after day.

Sandals on a Fall shoe list? I have three words, SOCKS AND SANDALS! Yeah, why not? These sandals are sherpa lined unlike the usual Rule Breakers so I think that makes them the perfect transition shoe into Fall. So far I have wore them with jeans and a dress and they added so much flair to both outfits. These are a high 2.5" flatform that some reviewers have found hard to walk in. I am pretty clumsy and I nicknamed them the ankle breakers, but I really haven’t had any issues with them.

Fall is the perfect season to experiment with different shoe styles and add a touch of personality to your outfits. From ankle boots to sneakers, there are countless options to choose from. While I picked out some of my favorites, I would love to hear about your go-to styles as well. Are you a fan of classic pumps, or do you prefer trendy platform sandals? Maybe you love a good pair of loafers for the office, or you can't resist a comfortable pair of sneakers for running errands. Whatever your preference, don't be afraid to mix and match styles to create a unique and fashion-forward look this season. With so many options available, the possibilities are endless!


Your Favorite Bougie Girl,


This is my take on the classic potluck, cookout recipe, Dorito salad. It is super easy, super fast, and super delicious! It is great for a casual weekday lunch or dinner that kids and adults love. Take to a potluck or cookout and everyone will want the recipe, it's that good! This can be made a few hours ahead, but if you make it well in advance save some Doritos and dressing to revive the salad right before serving.


1lb ground turkey or beef

1 packet of taco seasoning

3/4 cup of water

1/2 red onion

1 head of iceberg lettuce

2 tomatoes

1 15 ounce can of beans (pinto, black, or garbanzo work well)

2 cups cheddar cheese

14-ounce bag of Doritos

1 cup thousand island dressing


  1. Brown the ground meat, stirring occassionaly.

  2. While the meat is browning shred and wash the lettuce and add to a large bowl.

  3. Dice the onion and add half to the ground meat.

  4. Once meat is browned (drain the fat if you are using beef) add the taco seasoning and 3/4 cup of water and let simmer until water evaporates.

  5. Once the meat is done turn off the heat and let remain in pan while you prepare the rest of the salad.

  6. Dice the tomatoes then add to the bowl.

  7. Drain and rinse the beans and add to the bowl.

  8. Add the cheese, meat, all but 2 cups of the Doritos, and dressing to the bowl in that order.

  9. Stir until everything is well coated with dressing. (Tip: If you add to much dressing and it appears too moist add another handful of Doritos. If it seems to dry add more dressing until it is just like you want it).

  10. Enjoy!
