Hello and happy Friday! With Christmas fast approaching I thought it was time to share another gift guide with you all. This week’s theme is splurge-worthy gifts! While my gift guide is obviously geared towards women, I think the Nespresso machine or Airpods would make a great gift for anyone! The suitcases are also a great universal gift, just maybe not in rose gold (ha!). To shop, just click on the + icons over the images.
Normally I would say happy Monday, but it’s not just any Monday; It’s Cyber Monday! And with that being said, I wanted to jump start your holiday look books with two glamorous holiday looks that won’t break the bank!
If you’ve been following along for awhile now, you know that SheIn is my one-stop shop for trendy, yet affordable pieces. So, of course this is the first place I looked for holiday outfits. When it comes to holiday dressing, I say, the more sequins the better! What other time of year can you break out a full sequin dress? This is your time to shine!
Of course, if sequins aren’t your thing that doesn’t mean that you need to look boring at your holiday parties. The top fabrics, aside from sequins, to keep in mind are velvet, satin, and metallics! You really can’t go wrong with any of those!
Anyway, I wanted to keep today’s post short and sweet. So, you can easily shop these looks below, and don’t forget, you can get these two looks, plus so many more, for 15% off with code BF19639Â forÂ Cyber Monday!
Hello and happy Tuesday friends! You probably have seen this look already when I shared it on InstagramÂ (give me a follow if you haven’t already!) a little while back. But, since the temperature seems to keep dropping (at least where I am), I figured it was time to talk about all things winter coats. I have to say, while I hate the cold weather, I thrive in winter fashion. What can I tell ya? I’m a big coat kinda girl. And with that being said, here are the six winter coat trends to keep in mind this season!
Puffer coats are 100% the “it-coat” this season. With the extremely cold temps, I’m not complaining! If you want to look ultra-chic in this trend, opt for a cropped puffer jacket style in an eye-catching color/style. I’m ready to rock a white puffer jacket, but I’m also loving the leather look versions and even the metallic ones!
When you are dealing with freezing cold weather, nothing beats a nice, quilted parka that goes down to your knees! Here are some fun options I’m loving. Just like with the puffer coats, I’m dying over white parkasâ€”so chic!
There is absolutely no coat more classic than a pea coat. This style has been in my wardrobe for years. If you haven’t invested in a camel pea coat yet, get yourself one ASAP. I promise, this will never go out of style.
Faux Fur Coats
Faux fur coats took the world by storm a few seasons ago and they’re definitely not going anywhere! Whether you want to rock a basic black or white coat, or you’re feeling more adventurous and want to opt for a bright color or animal print, you really can’t go wrong.
While I still agree that puffer coats are the trendiest coat this winter, sherpas/shearlings are definitely a close second! Here are some that I’m loving:
Ahh the trench coat. A closet staple that you’ll go back to year after year. I recently raved about trench coats in my “How to Dress Like a Parisian” post. While this isn’t always the warmest of winter coats, it’s the perfect option to throw over a chunky sweater on a warmer winter day!
That’s all for today. Which coat style is your favorite?
I’m back today with my second gift guide of the season! Last year, my cozy gift guide was a big hit and this year a few of you said you wanted to see it again. So, I’ve rounded up some holiday gift ideas that are perfect for that friend/relative/co-worker etc. who is a total homebody and is all about staying cozy!
Obviously, pajamas, robes, and slippers are a definite must when it comes to a cozy gift guide. The slippers are actually on my Christmas list this year because I’ve heard great reviews and I think they’re sooo cute. This UGG robe is also such a great ideaâ€”a luxurious gift for the person who likes to relax at home.
Two items that I’ve mentioned before and will probably continue to tout as great gift ideas are the Barefoot Dreams blanket and the Diptyque candle. If you don’t own a Barefoot Dreams blanket, do yourself a favor and buy one ASAP. If you’re not too picky about the pattern, this striped one is onÂ majorÂ sale. Unfortunately, the most popular patterns don’t usually go on sale. But anyway, I fight both of my cats for this blanket every dayâ€”it’s so so so soft. On to the candle. Diptyque makes luxurious (expensive) candles that are something a person might not splurge on for themself. Which makes it the perfect gift! There are so many different scents but I’m partial to vanilla.
Two other great gift ideas are journals/notebooks and coffee table books. A personalized notebook is such a cute idea and pairs really well with another gift like a scarf or a mug. And coffee table books are so thoughtful if you really know the person’s interests/aesthetic (obviously I would want to read the Little Dictionary of Fashion!).
So that’s it for this week. What gift guide would you like to see next? Let me know in the comments below!
I don’t think there is an outfit combo that is more on brand for me than a cozy sweater paired with a denim skirt and knee-high boots. This is the epitome of a fall outfit in my opinion. So, while we had a break in the cold-front we’ve been experiencing here in Baltimore you know I whipped this outfit right out!
I’ve been wanting to shoot this sweater for you guys because I’m absolutely in love with it (it’s actually been hanging in my room and I can’t tell you how many times my mom has looked at it and said she loved it). You know white is my go-toâ€”whether that’s sweaters, tees, or blousesâ€”but I love the fun addition of the color block sleeves! Paired with the balloon sleeve silhouette it’s a subtle statement and so, so chic.
Again, at this point you guys know my undying love of denim skirts (check out my fall staples post here), so I won’t go into detail. And of course, the outfit wouldn’t be complete without some form of boots. I wanted this outfit to look classic and slightly preppyâ€”I’d say mission accomplished!
But now that we’ve got the outfit covered, here’s another reminder about the $1,000 Amazon gift card giveaway. Enter below!
