THE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE // FOR THE HOSTESS


Good morning everyone! Thank you for stopping by and for checking out my new gift guide for the hostess. This gift guide was really fun to put together and I think everything here is great for all the girls! Moms, sisters, aunts, grandmas, and best friends. I also included a few things that remind me of my summer trip to Maine, like the sailboat matches, Eberjey pajama set, Aerin hurricane vase, shell bracelet and Tory Burch flip-flops. By the time Christmas rolls around, resort and spring styles will be in full swing and I wanted to give you a head start on vacation planning. The passport book and bright yearly datebook are on my wishlist and maybe a trip or two. Tory Burch just launched some of her new resort looks for 2015 and of course I'm in love with this embroidered caftan. I also wanted you to know that I tried the new fragrance 31, at J.Crew and I love it. Very pretty scent that reminds me of my favorite fragrance Amber Musk. It's the perfect stocking stuffer at $25 and right now you can save 30% off at J.Crew with code GETFESTIVE. Hope you enjoy today's gift guide! Feel free to share it with your friends!

THE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE // FOR HIM


I honestly think I have as much fun putting guy styles together, as I do for us ladies. (See my holiday gift guide for her) There is something about the men looking handsome in something new.

Anyway, he's going to be pleasantly surprised when Christmas arrives and he gets to open a few of these things featured here. Hope you enjoy this list and make sure to scroll through the Get The Look below to shop 25 best gifts for the men in your life.  More to come, so stayed tuned!

LOOKS I LOVE // NAUTICAL EDITION


Hi everyone! Can you believe tomorrow is Friday? This was a busy week for me and I'm looking forward to the weekend, so that I can finish planing out my cooking ideas for Thanksgiving. Those of you who are my closest friends and family know that my husband does most of the cooking and this Thanksgiving I decided that I'm going to cook. So, please say a prayer for me! 

Today's looks are a little nautical and you know I love a chic wintry nautical look. That peacoat is definitely a winner and the shimmery metallic top is party perfect. Oh, and I had to add the adorable metallic anchor tote by my dear friends at Sea Bags! I can't tell you enough how much I love that brand. Honestly, I think everything here is just right for winter and would make perfect gifts for Christmas. Enjoy today's Looks I Love...

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 and enter Chico's giveaway for a chance to win a $1000!



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!
