Life as a blogger can be hectic. Those who are in the greenhouse industry will understand what I mean. They have a “busy” season during the summer, and as a blogger, my busy season is in full swing. That means Joe is having to fend for himself when it comes to food, and we eat a lot of pre-prepared meals. It also means that

you’ll be seeing more sponsored posts than usual. Because it is the holiday season, all the retailers want to make sure that you’re seeing their new arrivals. I’m blessed that I get to pick and choose who I want to work with, and I only work with brands that I think you will like and will benefit you in some way. I turn down hundreds of offers a week, and I hope you like the ones that I choose to work with.

The economy is taking a toll on a lot of households, and I like bringing you ways to save money whenever I can. The post I did on Rakuten might have seemed strange since it wasn’t a “fashion” post, but it is a service I use all the time, and it does save you money. Several of you emailed me asking for the links to the clothing that was in that post, so I’m including those today.


Another way I want to make your holidays a little brighter is by doing weekly giveaways. Each Saturday until the end of the year, I will be giving away TWO $50 Amazon Giftcards. To enter the giveaway, you must live in the US, OR you must have a PayPal account. Since I’m in the US, I can’t buy Amazon Giftcards for other countries, but I can send a $50 payment by PayPal, and you can buy it for yourself.

Entering the giveaways is easy…I’ll be randomly (Alexa) picking the winners from the comments left on the posts throughout the week. The more posts you comment on, the greater your chances are of winning. Each week will run from Saturday through Friday. A winner will be announced each Saturday, and the giveaway will start all over again. Good Luck to all of you!

This outfit generated a lot of interest, and I can understand why. This is one of my favorite outfits that I’ve worn this fall, probably because I LOVE a chunky sweater. Cable-knit sweaters are my favorite, and this Camel Cable Sweater is beautiful. I had a hard time deciding between the camel and ivory sweaters, but I like how the camel looks with my hair and skin tone. I’m wearing a medium, and it fits me great.

I already had these Low-Rise Bootcut Jeans in a lighter color. (See them here) I wanted to get the darker color also, and I wanted to try a smaller size since I felt the light version was too roomy. These are a size 28/6, and they fit better. I like my jeans to fit tighter, so sizing down worked for me. If you like a loose fit, then order your usual size.

The tobacco brown Leather Classic Tote is a good size if you like larger bags as I do. I love the pebbled leather and the deep chocolate brown color; they both make the bag look very luxurious. The tote comes in black and mineral, but the brown color is my pick.

These Low-Rise Wide-Leg Jeans are at a great price. Even though they are calling these two jeans “low-rise,” they aren’t low like you are used to seeing. They are just lower than the high-rise jeans that are trending. I actually prefer this rise for my torso, so I’m glad to see this style as an option. I’m wearing a 29/8 in these jeans, and I can’t tell if they are loose on me or if it is the wide-leg style. Lol! I know the jeans would look better with a slimmer-fitting top or one that is tucked, but I couldn’t wait to show you the sweater.

Calling all you soft, cozy, and cuddly lovers!!! You are going to LOVE this unbelievably soft sweater!!! I like the casual style of the sweater, and I will wear this on repeat this fall and winter. This is a Barefoot Dreams Half Zip Tunic Sweater, and as the saying goes, “if you know, you know!” I thought Barefoot Dreams was just an overpriced sweater until I broke down and tried my first one. OH, MY WORD! My sister is probably still calling me names for introducing her soft, cozy, and cuddly loving daughter to this brand. At least she knows something to include on her daughter’s Christmas list each year. I’m wearing a medium, and it fits me to perfection.

Christmas Decor from Amazon

It won’t be long before I put up my Christmas Tree. I know that most of you are going to wait until after Thanksgiving or even later. But, because of the “photos” I’ll need to take with my Christmas decor and tree, I’ll need to have everything I need earlier. So, while I was busy shopping for Christmas Decor from Amazon, I decided to share items I have in my cart.

Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is showing Amazon Christmas Decor

Battery Operated LED Window Candles with Flickering Amber Flame – I bought some battery candles last year, but I wasn’t happy with them, so I’m trying these instead. They have a lot of great reviews, so I’m ordering three sets for all my windows.

Christmas Tree Collar – Do you have one of these tree collars for your tree? They are so popular, but I couldn’t figure out how to use one last year. Lol! I’m ordering the gold one (I use gold and bronze for my tree) to try this year. This collar comes in a lot of styles, including raffia, Santa’s belt, drum pattern, etc.

Pre-Lit Artificial Christmas Garland – I made the mistake of ordering garlands last year that weren’t pre-lit. As Pretty Woman would say, “Big Mistake…Huge!” This one is 9 feet long, which is great for fireplaces, doors, and stair rails. I’m going to order two of them to frame my front door with this year.

Set of 9 Assorted Gold Glass Ball Ornaments – I love mercury ball ornaments. I have some red ones, and I’m getting these in gold to go with my existing ornaments.

Set of 3 Christmas Lighted Gift Boxes – I had a couple of sets of these in red that I loved. But I need them in Warm White to go with the rest of my decor. I plan on using them on my front steps or under the tree. I’ll decide that once they arrive.

Decorative Cow Bell with Jute Hanging Rope  – Did you know that I used to collect bells? I still have my bell collection, but I haven’t collected any additional bells in years. I’m going to hang these bells in the wreath on my front door.

Set of 8, Real Wax Battery Operated LED Candles with Flickering Flame and Timer – I have these in ivory, but I love these golden ones.

Lenox Holiday Ornament Cookie Jar – Isn’t this Ornament Cookie Jar gorgeous??? I think it would look nice beside my coffee pot, and since cookies go great with coffee, I think it will be the perfect spot for it.

36-in. Mountain Pine Flocked Wreath with Battery-Operated LED Lights – I love this Flocked Wreath with led lights. It will look great on my front door with the bells.

Spode Christmas Tree Sculpted Octagonal Platter – I was thinking about this Christmas Tree platter for putting out a cheeseball with crackers around it. I love a nibbling platter out while I’m trying to cook our dinner. It keeps the guests satisfied and from getting hangry.

Pre-Lit Snow Flocked Artificial Holiday Christmas Pine Tree – Guess who bought a gorgeous flocked tree last year without lights??? Another big mistake on my part.

18pcs Christmas Tree Decoration Crystal Ornaments – These crystal ornaments look beautiful, and I love adding crystal to my tree to reflect the lights.

Magnolia, Pine, and Berry Holiday Arrangement in Glass Vase – Small arrangements like this are perfect for small tables, bathrooms, or guest rooms. They add a touch of holiday cheer without taking up a lot of space.

Ivory White Knit Christmas Stockings – I love seeing stockings hanging on the mantle. I can’t tell if these will be large enough, but ordering them is the only way to know for sure.

Watercolor Christmas Tree Throw Pillow Cover Cushion Case – Festive pillows make a huge difference. I love adding pillows like this to the white bedding in my bedrooms. I used to put up Christmas trees in all the bedrooms, but this is much easier!

  4. I love your Christmas home décor style. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  5. Tania you have inspired me to try new styles and get outside my box!! Thanks!

  6. Love the chunky knit sweater, I just have a hard time wearing turtle necks. I have a pair of wide leg Jean’s and love the look with boots and a sweater for a fast fashionable outfit. I love Christmas, so as soon as the temps turn and Halloween is done I start decorating the house. Cant wait to see your decorations up.

  7. Phyllis Roberts says:

    You are so beautiful for your age. Thank you for bringing such great ideas at affordable prices to our attention.

  8. I recently started a new job which requires going into the office occasionally. Since I’ve work from home for so long my wardrobe needed a few new pieces and I came to your site to see what you were modeling! It’s so great that you started doing this since being in my 50’s it was hard to find clothing that was age appropriate. Thank you for all you do!

  9. Love your Christmas choices and the brown handbag. I love your style and the fact that your daily blogs are packed with so much information.

  10. Love that camel sweater on you.
    I just bought a camel sweater but not turtleneck and I love this color for autumn.

  11. I love that camel sweater on you!

  12. You say you have the ivory set of 8 candles with the remote…. Do you love them or are they just ok?

    1. Patti, I thought I loved the ivory set, but I just got in the gold set, and it is so much bigger, the ivory set looks puny now. Lol!

  13. Copple Jane says:

    Love your website and look forward to seeing it everyday! You give me great
    ideas how to put different types of clothes together. I also appreciate your sharing the inspirational messages.

  17. Stephanie says:

    Love how soft Barefoot Dreams sweaters are! 🙂

  18. Stephanie says:

    I am actually on the hunt for an unlit tree, so I laughed at your mistake from last year. My man likes hundreds (thousands) of lights, so we need a plain tree. Harder to find.

  19. Love the bootcut jeans. Not sure about the wide leg jeans for me. Can a shorter (5’ 2”) person wear them?

  20. Hi …. First time I’ve left you a comment but I’ve visited your blog many times over the last couple of years.
    Thank you for the precious time and effort you put in daily to bring us such inspirational posts,I love your style !.

    I love Barefoot Dreams too! Can’t wait to see your Christmas decor!

  26. Vicki L Werley says:

    I never bought clothes from Amazon, Banana Republic, etc. I am petite and my go to store is Talbots. I don’t know if I should order a x-small or small from the other stores. Any suggestions?

    1. Vicki, I usually am on the lower end of my size range when I order from Talbots. If I waver between a med and a large, I’ll order a medium from Talbots. I hope that helps.

  27. I love the Christmas decorations, especially the cookie jar!

  28. Judy Thompson says:

    Thanks so much for all the links to those terrific items! I’m definitely holding on to this post to refer to. I also love that you share upscale as well as affordable items. Some bloggers only post things way out of my Social Security income range! Blessings!

  30. Can’t wait to see more of your festive outfits!

  31. I love a chunky sweater every time. And I love camel and ivory so I need these in my life. And I love barefoot dreams… and a zip up …. Shopping in my future…. Thank you I think!!!

    Love the Christmas decor selections! Looking forward to your review on the window candles and the pre-lit garland; I need both this year.

    1. Do you ever carry small cross body purses?

  33. Can’t wait to see pictures of your home decorated for Christmas this year!!

  34. I love the look of the cable sweater but, I am a ‘think’ gal….should I stay away from wearing them?

  35. Cheryll Sampson says:

    I love your Christmas selections and look forward to the pictures. The brown purse is beautiful, also.

  36. Jan Finger says:

    I love the gold candles from you Christmas Amazon list. I just bought more Ivory ones from Costco but I may have to trade them for the gold.
    So much better for Christmas!!

  37. Catherine A. F. says:

    I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner. Love all the decorations.

  38. Teri OBrien says:

    I love looking at all your suggestions

  39. I love the v-neck sweater from Amazon. Wish I could wear the cable turtleneck, but the neck would drive me crazy.

  40. Appreciate the Christmas decor ideas and links.

  41. Linda Kaplan says:

    Thanks for all you do. It was nice to see several of the bloggers I follow in your pics from Dallas at the Influencers conference.

  42. Getting the pre lit garland. I’ve been messing adding my own lights for too long.

  43. Marty Roggenbaum says:

    You have a great sense of style. I’m such a fan of Chico’s that I easily recognize their pieces when you feature them. Plus, all your Christmas picks look like they were taken from my house! Ha! The tree collar really saved floor space for me.

  44. Laura L Astleford says:

    I am so ready for some fall sweater weather!

  45. I love decorating for Christmas, but I do wait till after thanksgiving. Love your blog.

  51. Linda Derrington says:

    I so appreciate when you give info on items, as well as your personal reviews. Thanks, Tanya!!

  52. I just recently found your blog and enjoy reading. As an older mother with teens I’m making that switch from mostly mommy blogs to fashionable and kind older women!

  53. So many great ideas for Christmas decor! I need to start shopping & get some new things for our home!

  54. Be sure to let us know how you like the window candles. I always struggle to find them with white lights, not orange. Thank you, Tanya!

  55. Great Post! I think I need that Amazon V-neck sweater!
    I got the coated denim flare jeans and would love more ideas on how to wear them.

  56. Linda Johnson says:

    I just ordered the lighted gift boxes! They look beautiful! Yesterday I joined Walmart plus! I love all your great tips for saving money!

  57. Brooke Shapiro says:

    Looking for the cow bells to be on sale!

  58. Love the fall clothing ideas. Thanks for sharing some Christmas decor items.

  59. SOOOOOO many good things in your blog today. Thanx!

  60. Wow what a lot of newsy stuff in this post. I envy all the bulky sweaters, here in S Texas, no sweater weather in sight for months. The crystal decs and the tree collar caught my eye. The tree shirt always get rumpled and frumpy looking, so this might be the neat fix. Needethe verse today – having issue with an associate and I need to get it straight.

  61. Tracy Abraham says:

    Love the cable knit sweater. I might have to get that in ivory! ❤️

    1. Kandy French Donnelly says:

      Ok. I stopped following you for a while because I just order too many things. You have a way of knowing just what I like!! This is a compliment BTW! I do like your variety with your posts and fun posts. I am glad to be back! (You we’re actually first blogger I followed)!

  62. Elizbeth M Provencher says:

    I l love love the looks today. You are rocking them. The shoes bring back memories from the 70’s. Last year I found your blog and started adapting my wardrobe to look more put together. Have gotten many compliments.

  63. Elizbeth M Provencher says:

    Love the looks today. You are rocking them. The shoes bring back memories from the 70’s. Thanks for doing what you do.

  64. Love the tree collar and pillow cover. I love decorating the house for Christmas.

  65. Mary McCoy says:

    I am glad you have included lower priced clothing. Some bloggers only have very high priced items. You look fabulous!

  66. Love the Christmas tree collar and the pillow cover. I love decorating the house for Christmas.

  67. That camel turtleneck is calling my name.

  68. I like the camel sweater on you. It’s color is so flattering. I never thought I would look good in camel but I will have to try, because I have similar coloring. I like the idea of the tree collar. I always have used a skirt for real & artificial trees. I might have to try one.

  69. I’ve been looking for the perfect bootie and thanks to you, I found them in the Scoop design you suggested! Thanks Tania!!

  70. Great post! Love the cableknit sweater and jeans. Thank you for all the work on your posts with the Fall clothing ideas!!

  71. Gina Luebke says:

    Love the cable knit sweater and I’m very excited about the giveaways! I don’t normally comment a lot because I know your so busy but I’m going to start now🤩🥰😃

  72. Love the trouser jeans from Chicos. As a larger woman I forget to check out places like Chicos and I love trouser jeans!

  73. I have to try that Barefoot dreams sweater. Looks great on you! Tania, I love reading your posts. They are so full of great ideas. Glad I found you! Also, love your style – very classy! Thank you for putting so much effort into your posts!

  74. Love all your style tips. Wonderful tips to get us style challenged ladies out of our comfort zone boxes! Have
    a blessed week!

  75. I can’t wait to see your home all decorated for Christmas! I used to go all out for decorating my home for Christmas, but it became just too much. So now I have 3 wreaths that I pull from storage and hang those up. Plenty festive.

  76. Tania – I love all your posts! Looking forward to more great ideas for gift giving, plus maybe some ideas for things to put on my own list!

  77. Love everything about this cableknit sweater and jeans! 😍

  78. Doris Mitchell says:

    Yay for all of the Fall clothing ideas and sales. And thank you, I signed up for Rakuten !!!

  79. I like the idea of the Christmas tree collar. And that it folds flat for storage. I also like the cowl necked cable knit sweater

  80. I’m new to your blog and loving it! So much content and lots of posts I can’t wait to read. Love the early Christmas decor items. Let us know if the stockings are large enough – love the look of them.

  81. I’m really appreciating how. you list all the links in rd multiple times…it makes flagging what I’m interested in exploring so easy! Jut purchased the flannel button down from Old Navy and I love it!

  82. Great post! Love the tree collar idea (the other fashion and decor items were good too)!

  83. Love the camel turtleneck sweater and bootcut jeans!

  84. Tania, the “ber” months is my favorite time of year. I enjoyed looking at the Amazon Christmas decorations that you had in your cart. I’ve been looking at those tree collars the past few weeks. I’m looking forward to seeing your tree all decorated.

  85. Lee Dorner says:

    So enjoy your commentary and style pics.

  86. Those 2 outfits look great on you! The camel cable sweater is especially nice. Thanks for the giveaways!

  87. Ginger Hiller says:

    I wish that I needed another sweater because I love the chunky camel cable knit one you have. I’m having shoulder surgery on Nov. 18, so I won’t be able to wear it for a while any way, so it’s just as well that I don’t need it! THANK YOU for doing the weekly giveaways. I want to share a mistake I made that hopefully, will keep someone else from making the same mistake. Don’t store the faux candles in your attic or any space where it gets hot during the warm months because it will melt them. Oops! We always decorate for Christmas in late Oct. due to deer hunting season. Have a wonderful weekend!

  88. I love the timer candles and plan on ordering them. I always love your picks in clothes.

  89. Thank you for all the work you put in for all your posts! I enjoy reading each day!!

  90. Thank you for featuring these outfits again. I love the jeans you’re wearing with the turtleneck sweater! The outfit looks great on you, too! I’ve been holding out on buying a pair of flare jeans until I found the perfect wash and fit and I really like these. Unfortunately the product description doesn’t include crucial measurements for me like rise, inseam and leg opening. I can take a chance, of course, but I don’t understand why the retailer fails to provide complete product details.

  91. I like that second sweater. I haven’t shopped QVC in years, guess I will have to check them out.

  92. Loving that camel tneck sweater!!! ❤

  93. Thanks for sharing the Christmas decor suggestions!

  94. Loved looking through your Amazon Christmas cart!! Beautiful decor! Have a great weekend.

  95. Thanks for all the work you put in to share these items with us. You are appreciated.

  96. Totally love the camel/beige sweater, it’s now in my Banana Republic cart. Have a blessed weekend.

  97. Just became one of the Gurls! Thanks for sharing SO much with us – you are appreciated!

  98. I purchased the hooded, lightweight puffer and am pleased with the fit and style. The hood does not have a draw string but does have a little elastic to contour around your face. I also purchased a few of the mock turtle necks from last week, they are a nice weight, and not clingy. Thank you for your hard work!

  99. I love so many of your outfits, it’s hard to choose the ones I really need. Lol
    Thank you for doing what you do!

  100. Love sweaters and sweater weather. Thanks for the great picks!

  101. Tisha Johnston says:

    Thank you for the gift guides. Good ideas as usual!

  102. I like to purchase items from QVC and the Christmas items were good suggestions.

  103. Good morning, Tania. That cable sweater looks lovely on you.
    I am SO not ready to think about Christmas, but yet I checked out everything on your list! 🙂 Over the past few years, I have been gravitating toward pillow covers, instead of purchasing new pillows. Such a smart idea! Love this simple, understated tree design.
    Thank you for sharing.

  104. Love the BR pants, will have to give them a try. Thanks Tania

  105. It is that time to start thinking of decorating for Christmas. I really like those lighted present boxes. Sweater weather also. Going to get into 20’s next week here in Tennessee mountains.

  106. I love the sweater-the color is perfect for fall!

  107. Finally joined Rakuten after you posted, what took me so long! Love the camel sweater and chocolate tote! I love the brown tones so much. Thank you for inspiration.

  108. Great post! Please report back on the knit Christmas stockings when you receive…I love them but we put a lot in our stockings at Christmas so I want to make sure they are big enough. All of my Christmas decor is white, silver and gold…you will love it and we got a flocked tree last year and now I want another for our bedroom…
    Thanks for the giveaway…fingers crossed❤️

  109. Yours is the first place I check each morning. I love your style, and have bought some of the items you show. I really like that you show both high and low end items!

  110. Love the chunky camel sweater on you. Unfortunately, camel is not my color and chunky is not a good look for me. I’ll just have to admire the look on others,

  111. Holly Pickering says:

    Tania, I’ve been one of your gurls for several years and feel like I know you. Lol. Love your posts on different jeans styles. Happy Fall!

  112. Gaylon Scharbor says:

    Love the sweaters you share, but I still hot flash too much to wear them! Lol! Layers for me for a while yet! Lucky for me you share those layered looks, too!

    1. Jacque Abell says:

      Love those trouser jeans! I love jeans and would wear them all the time if I could. love the cable sweater also. God bless you this week.

  113. Hard to believe we are only 10 Saturday’s till Christmas 🎄

  114. Love today’s post. Outfits are so cute and love your Christmas holiday decor ideas. Enjoy your weekend

  115. Bekki Watkins says:

    Love all your picks!

  116. I have never shopped from one of the retailers I found on your website. Your glowing comments about a sweater have convinced me to try a new retailer.
    Thank you as I would never have found this retailer if it weren’t for your blog.

  117. Love all the styles you model, especially the cable knit sweater and the blue jeans. Your blog is so informative and the Christmas decor is gorgeous!

  118. Fran Meeks says:

    I love your taste in clothes and decor. You do a great job presenting a wide price point for goods.

  119. I have followed you for a long time and you just keep getting better.Thanks for all you do!! Great post.

  120. Thanks for the giveaway!

  121. I love your choices! I have never used a Christmas tree collar either, may have to try!!

  122. Maribeth Conklin says:

    Great post! What is the purpose of the Christmas tree collar?

  123. Leslie Beckman says:

    You have been motivating me to pull out those fall sweaters! My favorite time of year for sure 😍

  124. Sally Kirk says:

    Love a classic cable knit sweater.

  125. Barefoot dreams! Amazing! Thank you for all you do, Tania!

  126. Love all the Christmas decor ideas, very pretty! That turtleneck sweater looks great on you!

  127. Love your blog! Thank you for offering this generous giveaway.

  128. Love your fashion as always, but really enjoy seeing decorating ideas too. The dinner recipe from Walmart this week was a nice surprise.

  129. Lisa Blohm says:

    Great post, so many nice items. Love the camel color of the turtleneck sweater, so flattering on you. Love flocked trees and candles in the window for Christmas decorations. Nice to see items at every price point with the current economy.

  130. Robin Cohn says:

    I liked the second sweater more. I feel like the first sweater on a bigger chest woman would make me look bigger. I liked the classic holiday decoration ideas.

  131. Great pick, now I gotta have that chunky sweater!!

  132. You are so right, Tania! Barefoot Dreams sweaters are the softest sweaters ever! I look forward to reading your blog daily.

  133. That chunky sweater is gorgeous and paired with those jeans – perfection!

  134. Louise Logan says:

    Love your blog!! Great styles at mostly great prices. Love that you include Walmart, Old Navy, and Amazon!

  135. Patti Belew says:

    Love the camel cable sweater!

  136. Beth Crawford says:

    I love the Christmas items you have picked out from Amazon. I can’t order anything until I unpack my Christmas decor. I have so much now that I’m not sure what I need.
    I love the Camel color also, but I’m afraid that the chunky cable knit will be too much on me. I’m chestyand I don’t want to look any bigger !

  137. I love fall clothing, the sweaters and plaid shirts are my favorites.

  138. A give-a-way! How fun. In this post my favorite is the low rise dark jeans. They’re so flattering. Thanks for all you do.

    I bought a Barefoot Dreams cardigan from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year, and I am so glad I did! It is the softest thing in my entire wardrobe. Now I need to go get the pullover you highlighted today!

  141. I love the jeans you are wearing in the first picture! And the sweater, too!

    Love the cable knit sweater! And the Christmas decor is so pretty! Keep sharing your good Amazon Christmas finds!

  143. Thanks for the Christmas decor. I cleaned out old stuff a couple of years ago and haven’t replaced it all.

  144. I love all of the Christmas decor! I put my tree up before Thanksgiving too and we decorate it the day after.

  145. Love Christmas! These ideas got me thinking of what to do this year. I especially like the candles for the windows. Thanks

  146. Tania, I am glad you are showing these Christmas decorations, because I need to update things. Most of my battery candles are dead or look like they are, haha! You are reminding me to clean things up.

    This post is wonderful. That Tobacco Leather Tote is incredible.Definitely on my Christmas list. There are too many items on the Christmas decorations that I love to choose just one but if I had to the pre-lit garland would have to be it. I love garland on the fireplace. I currently have a multi colored garland but would love one in white lights to trade off from year to year. Love seeing what you have to post every day.

  148. keep the ideas coming! thank you!

  169. I love the cable knit sweater and have my eye on one on Amazon. A few days ago a friend and I were talking about sweater styles and I reminisced about a turtleneck cable knit sweater I had years ago. She said “Oh yeah, what ever happened to that sweater? I told her I LITERALLY wore it to pieces!

  170. I love your taste in decor! Thank you!
