Happy almost Friday! Is it just me or has this week been dragging on?! I finally got some stuff in that I ordered on Black Friday and figured I would do a Haul for you. I also did a try on session in my stories on Instagram (@waterandwine_) so be sure to check it out!
Anyway, I was really looking for sweaters and cute but casual tops on Black Friday. Ones that can easily be dresses up and down depending on my mood or my plans. I’ll share all sizing info as well and will do another Haul when the rest of my stuff comes in! I ordered a few more things.
Outfit 1: Top, Jeans, Boots
Outfit 2: Top, Faux Leather Spanx, Booties
Outfit 3: Top
Outfit 4: Jacket
Outfit 1: I was looking for a top I could wear with a skirt for either work or everyday that wasn’t too low cut! Target definitely delivered. I would suggest sizing down in this. I thought it would be tight but it was kind of lose. I also thought I ordered the small but I got a medium so I am going to exchange it! The jeans I have had and I am wearing a 27 (size 4). These boots are so cute! They are Jessica Simpson and go to the shin. They are cute to wear with either jeans or a dress/skirt! They are TTS and I’m wearing my normal a 9.5!
Outfit 2: So I am slightly obsessed with this top. I really wanted it in black as well, but I waited to long and it was sold out. It’s the perfect little sweater top if you are hanging out or traveling. It’s extremely light weight and can be dressed up or down. I’m wearing a small here! The spanx faux leather leggings will likely become my favorite go tos. I’m so glad I invested in them. They really suck you in! I am wearing a medium. Lastly, I’ve blogged about my shoes before but I love these Calvin booties! I’m wearing a size 9.5 and they are TTS.
Outfit 3: Another Target find! Love this little casual sweater. The slits on the side make it a little dressier and it’s so comfortable!
Outfit 4: I wasn’t sure about this coat when I first got it but I LOVE it! I ordered a medium hoping I could layer underneath, and I totally can! I think it would look good with jeans or a dress!
What do you think of the outfits? Also let me know what you think of these blog posts of the hauls in the comments below!

Friday is finally here! I am so excited because we are celebrating my great aunt’s 90th birthday tonight and I can’t wait to be all together with my family. My parents are away and won’t be there so we will miss them but I can’t wait to see everyone! We are also celebrating my friends birthday on Saturday, so we have a full weekend of plans ahead of us.
Since Thanksgiving is less than 3 weeks away, I have started thinking about outfits to wear. My parents host Thanksgiving and we wake up at like 7am to start cooking and preparing. It is something I look forward to each year, and can’t wait for this year. I found this gorgeous embroidered skirt at Francesca’s and knew I had to have it. It works perfect for the fall but I also feel like it works perfect for Thanksgiving with a nice top, pair of boots or booties, and a cute Pea Coat. In the next few weeks I will be sharing some Thanksgiving Outfit inspiration for anyone looking for something to wear, so be on the look out 🙂 I saw while linking the skirt there was only a few left so if it is sold out, here are a few almost identical ones that Francescas has – here, here, & here.
I am wearing a medium in the skirt, which I think is pretty true to size for their clothing. I tend to get mediums in pants and bottoms here because I have wide hips and the small doesn’t look right. The top is from TJ Maxx and I cannot find it online, but I linked some similar ones. Lastly, I am wearing a 9.5 in my Stuart’s (I always size up by 1/2 a size). I linked similar booties for you guys as well. I know I link a lot of Stuart Weitzman shoes. I believe in investing in shoes and items that will last long and are more bang for my buck. They were expensive, but they definitely last longer than most shoes I have. But I will always link similar cheaper versions as well!
What are your weekend plans?

Happy Tuesday everyone!
The weekend is almost over for me because I had a long weekend but go back to work tomorrow. I love long weekends because Monday is always the hardest for me, so knowing the week will be half way over when I go into work will make the week go that much faster.
I love that fall allows you to try different things with your wardrobe like layering vests over outfits, and wearing loafers with ankle jeans. These loafers have become a staple in my closet. I wear them to work often and in my everyday life as well. They are extremely comfortable and go with so much!
These J Crew Loafers have quickly become my favorites and are TTS. This vest is from the Calvin Klein Jean Collections from a few seasons ago, but any vest can work good with this kind of outfit. I love layering it on top of my look for a slightly dressier look, and it keeps me pretty warm. I have linked similar ones above since mine is no longer sold. I am wearing a small in the vest and it is still a bit big so size down. The jeans are TTS and I am wearing a size 27 (4).
What shoes are a must have for you?

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a great weekend so far. Yesterday we celebrated Halloween a bit early and did a tornado escape room. It was so much fun and we beat it with 8 minutes left! My group of friends and I are now 3 for 3 and have beat every escape room we have tried. We love them and can’t wait to try some new ones.
I love staying cozy on Sundays, even if I am out and about or with friends & family and love to dress that cozy outfit up a bit. Off-the-shoulder tops are seriously my favorite and mixing in a sweater is even better. I love the way they look with the exposed shoulder. I am also crushing on these leggings that I got from Macys that are BCBGeneration. The faux leather line on them dresses them up a bit to look like more than just a pair of leggings. I easily dress these up or down.
I am wearing a medium in the sweater which is a little big. I got this sweater as a gift and it’s from Francesca’s fall line from 2017. I linked similar ones since they no longer have this one on their site. I am wearing a medium in the leggings, which fit perfectly. The shoes I am wearing a size 9.5 so that I can also wear socks with them.
What are your Sunday plans? Do you usually spend Sunday’s with family or just hanging around?
