Olive Green Vest & Beija-Flor Jeans + Outerwear Wish List

| Photos | Catherine Truman Photo


Winter is coming!  For all of my "Game of Throne" fans, that saying has a completely different meaning to you!  But seriously, prepping for the cold with a thick warm frost fee vest is a MUST!

Although I don't own many "vests", I absolutely LOVE this one.  It doesn't just look cute but it is going to actually serve a purpose...keeping me warm!  There are only a few sizes left in this particular color BUT there are several other colors to pick from.

For a size reference, I am wearing a medium because I wanted the extra space for layering!

Also...I must tell you about my recent experience with Beija-Flor Jeans.  Beira-Flor's flagship store is located in Greenville, SC and they recently opened a store right here in Nashville.  I had always heard amazing things about Beija-Flor so I was thrilled when they invited me to their Nashville location to have a one-on-one consultation.

From the moment I walked in the door until the time I left with jeans in hand, I received a personalized shopping experience, which is something that they do for each and every customer.

The team at the Nashville store was well versed in their denim and was able to help me uncover which style of Beija-Flor jeans was the right fit for my shape.  Their knowledge, expertise, and professional opinions were gladly accepted because let's be for jeans on your own can be torture!

My perfect pair ended up being Aubrey Ankle "The Icon" in navy with Emana!  Emana is a patented skin firming technology that reduces the appearance of cellulite (YES PLEASE) and helps relieve muscle fatigue as well.  The overall result...a much smoother silhouette!

If you are local to Nashville, you must check them out!  They are located in Edgehill Village.  If you are not local, you can still receive a personalized experience as their website is fully equipped to help you uncover your perfect pair of jeans.  You can also call a (1 (800) 540-6241) Fit Master at the Nashville store and they would be more than happy to assist you!  I promise you will be nothing but satisfied!

I've also put together a collage of some gorgeous outerwear pieces that are currently 25% off!  Click on the images below and you will be taken directly to the site and don't forget to use code FRIEND at checkout to receive your additional 25% off!

Now is a great time to buy a new winter coat and enjoy some savings when you do!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great Wednesday!

p.s. starting yesterday, I began a #12daysofchristmas giveaway on Instagram!  Please feel free to enter and stay tuned for the next giveaway, which will be announced Wednesday night on Instagram!
