HOLIDAY GLITTER WITH CHICO'S


Hi everyone! I hope your week is going well so far. Today, I'm excited to share some lovely, holiday gift ideas with you from Chico's. This is the season to sparkle and most of the styles I chose here do just that. The sequin poncho and sparkly sea life key chain are fun gift ideas for the girls and what better to dress up for a holiday party than to wear an embellished dress! Be sure to check out all the looks below to get the details for gorgeous gifts for the girls on your list.



Thank you Chico's for sponsoring this holiday post!

'TIS THE SEASON

In case you missed this post! I gathered a few cheese board inspirations to create this Thanksgiving. I'm more excited about the cheese board than the turkey this year! See the post here.


 I'm so excited that my new Warby Parker glasses are on their way to me! These were the try-ons.

Had a fun mail day last week! New tartan mugs (& here) for Christmas, the most gorgeous blue and white, buffalo check flannel shirt I own, tartan guest towels and a beautiful Nordic log basket gifted from Serena & Lily.

 Enjoying my new buffalo plaid top and tartan mug. The boots are last year Tory Burch (here are similar styles and I really love these and they're on sale) and the distressed denim by J.Crew sold out (love these). I'm also wearing one of the new winter shades from Essie.

Love this scarf! It's a must have! Essie nailpolish.


 A little holiday home inspiration I shared here a few days ago. I working on collecting everything here!

 Sharing a casual festive look on Instagram. Everyone loves this scarf! Shop it here! If it's sold out, keep checking back, because they keep adding more to the inventory.
scarf | long sleeve tee | jeans | coffee mug | heels (sold out) similar | Essie nailpolish

 Buffalo plaid vest from J.Crew and the shirt is from the Gap.
I'm wearing Essie nailpolish.

I took advantage of the Tory Burch sale a couple of weeks ago and bought this embroidered linen cover-up. It's gorgeous and was under $100! Check out what's on sale now at Tory Burch!


I had fun putting together my first gift guide of the season! Stay tuned for more gift guides!

DESIREE'S BIG LIST OF COZY WINTER LOOKS



Good morning! My readers seem to love when I post these big list of favorites. I might have mentioned this before, but this season has been hard for me to keep up with all the lovely looks and include them in a collage. So, my idea was to curate these huge lists each week for you, instead. Now, I must tell you a couple of things, one of which you may think I'm crazy. Well, last year I missed out on purchasing the buffalo plaid jacket from J.Crew, one reason was is was way too expensive for me at the time. So this year, J.Crew came out with this buffalo plaid bomber jacket, which I really love, but wanted something a little more formal. Are you still with me? So, I noticed that J.Crew, had a buffalo plaid jacket in the girls section. Ah huh, yep I did. I bought one in the girls section, size 16. After reading the size info on the jacket, I'm thinking that it might fit. I'm praying it does! Well, I should get it this week and I will give you an update. It was 25% off, so I thought this was a great time to try it out! Moving on... As I was searching for fun things online I found these Joie velvety skinny jeans in deep midnight! GORGEOUS! They are definitely on my wish list! I hope you enjoy these looks!
