Black Friday Haul Part 1

Hi Babes!

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!

What’s In My Bag?

One of my top requested posts is a “what’s in your bag” post, so I figured, why not?! I go into detail about what I am carrying and my thoughts on all the items below:

Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM -Damier Ebene & MM Insert– This bag is just amazing. There is no other word to describe it. It fits so much, can be used for everyday or travel, and just so worth it. I always wanted a Louis but could never justify spending the money on it. I would go and look at it in a store or look online constantly but never take the plunge. My husband surprised me with this beauty for Christmas and I use it almost everyday now. I got the insert to put into the bag to keep everything neat and clean. I actually got the insert from the MM because I wanted it a bit smaller than the bag so that I can bring the sides in if I wanted to.

Small Nail Kit – I always keep this in my bag as a just incase. For the longest time, I always had gel extensions or manicures and sometimes they would easily break and I would have a sharp edge. I love carrying this with me just incase I need it.

Impressions Compact Mirror – I LOVE this mirror. I carry and have it with me at all times, even if I am using a smaller purse. I have the tabletop impressions mirror with blue tooth that I use when putting my makeup on, and wanted one to bring around with me. It has a touch screen where you can tap and the light comes on, so if it is night time and you need to check yourself you have light or if you just wanted some more bright light you have it here. I highly recommend this!

Jessica Simpson Sunglasses & MK Case – I had a pair of Michael Kor’s Aviator glasses that came with the beautiful white case (that is very dirty and hard to clean). Those glasses unfortunately broke while I was on my honeymoon in Bali in September, and while shopping for a new pair, I found these Jessica Simpson sunglasses that I am obsessed with. They are so cute and the perfect aviators that won’t make you go broke.

Black Toiletry Case Set & Apple Airpods– I adore this set. I am currently using the mid-size toiletry piece in my purse but was using the smaller one as well until I got the “Good Vibes Only” bag in the mail from ipsy. I use the large bag for my makeup when I travel, the midsize one for lipstick, lipgloss, medicine, etc, and the smallest bag for my electronics. I always carry a charger, and earphones with me wherever I go. The airpods are one of the best things ever invented. I love wireless headphones for the gym and work and never liked any that were on the market. I got these headphones when they first came out and use them everyday! I also always keep some chapstick, hair ties, and clips with me and store them in here.

Victoria’s Secret Travel Perfume – The scent I have in my purse is “Dark Angel” which they no longer carry. I have the “Bombshell Seduction” scent as well and bring it with me when I travel. It is currently on sale for $7.00!

Lipstick and Matte Lip – I always carry a lipstick and matte lip with me at all times. These are my two favorites and go-tos! The Mac “Velvet Teddy” meshes well with almost any outfit or any plans you may have. I have talked about the tarteist matte lips in my post herebut the “Rose Nude” is one of my staple lips that I carry with me.

Kate Spade Card Case – I forgot to include this in my main picture, but I also carry around my business card case. I never know when I will run into someone for potential business so I always have mine with me. I got this case in gold but they no longer have the gold available. It is super cute though and I always get compliments on it.

Ted Baker Pen & Case – I always like to carry pens and stuff with me but they always end up exploding all over my bag. My mother in law got me this and I love it. I think it is such a cute idea and love that I can store them away without bulkiness. I also like to carry around a little notebook and found this cute envelope one a while back at TJ Maxx.

Misc – Kleenex are a must for me and I always have a small pack with me. I usually buy them from the dollar store! If you cannot find them let me know and I will link them in. I also have a card case that I keep in my bag (the striped case) which holds all of my gift cards and coupons that receive in the mail. That way, if I am ever out and stop somewhere I have everything with me. And of course, I always have my wallet with me (not pictured but I linked the one I use) I left my wallet in my car so it didn’t make the picture.
