(SALE ALERT: Starting black Friday – Jan. 1st, the entire Miranda Frye site will be 25% percent off with code MFSEASON! Don’t miss out!)
Something I have been loving lately are midi dresses. For some reason I never used to wear them, but I find them to be extremely comfortable and work for many occasions. Especially black ones. You can add a jacket, some jewelry, and you look totally put together. Especially with the holidays coming up, this style of dress would be perfect for a work party, Christmas Eve, or just a night out.
How is Thanksgiving in a few days?? Are you all ready? Good grief the holidays snuck up on me this year. My parents are going to be out of town so we’ll be spending the day with Andrew’s family. Usually we flip flop between our parents house’s because they both live in the same town. Are any of you hosting Thanksgiving this year? I think once Andrew and I have our house fulling furnished I’ll want to have it here. I’m a sucker for pretty tablescapes! I also wanted to remind you that I’ll be doing multiple gift guides this year so make sure to check back for more! And on Thanksgiving I’l have a list of sales you won’t want to miss! Have a great day!
It is officially time to start holiday shopping! I am going to be posting a series of gift guides to help you through this holiday season. I’m starting off with stocking stuffers. These are smaller items that are fine to gift alone or add to any other gift. Can I put these on my wish list as well?! Also I’ll have a post on Black Friday with all the great deals going on so don’t miss out on that! Happy Shopping!
Ahhh yes colder weather. This morning I took these pictures I was actually freezing. Finally! I’m loving layering different textures and patterns. It adds some interest to your outfit, and as long as the colors complement each other have fun with it. This oversized sweater is an easy piece to throw on top of anything. It is super chunky which is why I love it! This scarf is super chunky too. AND my booties are. (I just drank an energy drink…)
If you guys saw my last Haul video, then you probably remember a few of these pieces. These boots in particular have become an absolute favorite. I got them for a website called ifchic.com. The site has a mix of handpicked items from really great designers. Also, they have a program called #ifchic24 where you can earn coins to use towards your purchases. Each coin equals $1 and every day you visit the site you earn 6 coins. So you have the potential to earn $180 each month. The great thing is that on the 24th of every month you can use all of your coins towards your purchase. Talk about a huge discount! Definitely check out their beautiful pieces, I listed a few of my current lusts on the site below!
Are you guys loving Fall? I honestly can’t believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner. What the heck? I looked at the calendar today and realized all I need to get done!! Decorating a house has definitely taken over my life and I love it. I’ll have some pictures up soon. We have done so much lately, I feel like everything is falling into place. If you want to see some pictures make sure to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (kendraatkins) for more updates!
Sephora’s VIB sale is coming up on the 13th so I put together some things that are on my wishlist and also some things that I think would be great to get during this sale. It’s always a good idea to get things you already love and know you’ll be needing soon. Mascara, beauty blenders, concealer and setting sprays are a few things I always need but hate buying. This sale is the perfect time to save a little on those necessities. It’s also a good time to try out things you’ve been eyeing. Palettes, skincare and hair products can be a little pricey so take advantage now. I’m really wanting to try out the Stila Liquid Liner and the Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette! Have you guys tried either? And don’t forget about gifts. If you need to get someone a Christmas gift who loves beauty, this is the perfect time to do your shopping. It’s already November so I need to start figuring out what I need to get! I hope this gives you guys some ideas for your shopping cart.
Hey guys! I’ve been so excited to share this outfit with you. Forever 21 just launched a new shop section called Forever 21 Now and in honor of it, I have some super affordable pieces for you to shop! They’ll launch new pieces every week based on current trends. Check out their instagram HERE. I love mixing things up and trying out new styles. I decided to wear a darker lip for this ‘mostly’ black look because it’s fall, so why not! The lip color I’m wearing is the color I created in a recent video. You can watch that HERE. I’m loving this dress with the fringe sleeves. I think it adds a little edge to a simple dress. To make it more fall appropriate I added over the knee boots which I am so obsessed with. These are incredibly comfortable and dress up any outfit. I think these would look great with some skinny jeans! Let me know what styles you have been loving this season in the comments! Thanks so much for stopping by!
So I’m fully aware that it’s still November, but I’m so ready for Christmas. I walked through Target yesterday and couldn’t stop staring at all their holiday decor. If you like metallics and white, you need to go take a look at their new things. I was just scrolling through Joss & Main, which has become a morning ritual now, and got sucked into the Christmas stuff. I even took out some holiday decor pieces I had in storage last night and tried to put them up super nonchalant so Andrew wouldn’t be able to tell. Here is my compromise, I’m decorating ‘wintery’ right now. No santa’s or red and green is up in our home, just whites and metallics. So if you want to start decorating but be secretive about it, I came up with some ‘winter’ picks that will get you in the mood, but won’t make you look like a Christmas freak. (Confession: Michael Buble Holiday is currently playing on my Pandora.)
I am all about boots this fall! From ankle, to wedge to over-the-knee, they are the perfect addition to any look. Since I usually find my favorites shoes from Nordstrom, I rounded up my favorites for you guys. I really do feel like you can never have enough! I especially love black leather ankle booties. They give any outfit a little edge. I also am really into suede boots this year. Nude ones add a feminine touch and can go well with a lot of colors. I just bought those over-the-knee black boots and am in love! Let me know what style boot you like to wear the most! 1-Kristin Cavallari
Happy Thursday! I hope you have all been having a great week so far. I feel like I’ve been all over the place this week! I went up to LA on Tuesday for a dinner with Kevin Murphy and I’m going back up for another event tonight. It’s definitely nice being able to drive to LA for events, but the traffic is so brutal. But tonight I’m lucky because one of my friends is going to drive with me. Time always goes faster when driving with a friend! Something great happened yesterday, it was cloudy all day! Haha, I know all of you who live anywhere other than California are rolling your eyes. This is big news over here! It’s been in the low 80’s high 70’s which I know is still warm, but sadly it feels so much cooler. I’ll take 78 over 105 any day! One other totally random thing, I finished season 6 of Vampire Diaries last night, it was so intense! I am almost caught up! Anyways, I hope you all enjoy today’s outfit. Thanks for stopping by!
It is pumpkin season! My goodness it is everywhere I look! But I am totally fine with it because I love me some pumpkin. So I just posted a new video on my channel showing how to make these pumpkin donut muffins. If you aren’t in the mood to read, come watch the video HERE. These little drops of heaven were super easy to make and got my husband’s approval! (basically they don’t taste gluten free!) I made these first with a little too much batter in each muffin tin, so the next time baking I filled them up only about half way and they turned out much better. I like how these are honestly a perfect mix between a donut and a muffin. Incredibly moist, satisfying and just the right about of pumpkin. I hope you all enjoy!
The other day I went to the pumpkin patch with my friends and I took some pics to share with you guys! Nothing like a rustic pumpkin patch, am I right? I was really hoping for a legit corn maze but there was only a hay maze. Meaning we could see everything over hip-level. Super fun for little kids, not too scary for this 26-year-old. Have you guys been to a pumpkin patch yet? I always try to go every year to get in the fall spirit. Andrew couldn’t go this year because he has his Board exam this Wednesday so he’s been studying like a maniac. Which is great! But I’m ready to get my husband back soon! Once he is done, he’ll be completely done with school and can start working full time! I’m so proud of him for all he has accomplished. If any of you have gone through physical therapy school, you know what a job it is. Being married to someone going through it felt like I was in school for three more years too. (Okay, I know it was harder for him. But still!)
Pumpkin patches are totally acceptable photoshoot locations right? I’m going with yes! I loved how all these little families are walking by me trying to pose… One day I’ll have cute pictures of my little kids, but for now it’s just me haha.
I used to love salt water taffy. But now I look at it and think instant cavity.
Here is our wheel barrel of pumpkins! We later went home and painted them. Way less clean up and mess. And the pumpkins last way longer.
Our super fast and wild hay ride.
I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for stopping by!
