Happy Monday! Today’s gift guide is for the girl that loves to travel! One category I always find myself gifting for the holidays are travel accessories! Fun, classic travel pieces can be pricey and hard to buy for yourself, so I feel that they make the perfect gift. They’re also fun to personalize, because who doesn’t love a custom monogram?!
The Cuyana cosmetic bags are one of my personal favorite items. I have the grey color with a gold monogram, and I’m gifting the blush color this year. It’s so fun to gift these pieces, but also to receive them! These slippers are on my Christmas list, along with the cotton p.j.s! (hint, hint)
SHOP THE POST HERE:
Hope you all love my picks! What are on your lists this year??
Is it just me, or is it taking everyone a bit longer to get back into the swing of things? I usually unpack the day I get home from a trip, but I’ve had ZERO energy to do anything after I get home from work this week. Hopefully, next week I’ll get back into my regular routine..
One of my absolute favorite trends in the fall is darker, moodier florals. I picked up this dress (on sale!!) before my trip to Arizona and felt like it could easily transition from fall to spring. Since it was 80 degrees in Arizona last week, I was able to wear it with open toe heels and this suede moto jacket, but it would look really cute with heeled booties, (love these) too!
Side note: when Kurt and I were in New York last month, we went into the Club Monaco store on 5th Avenue! (If you haven’t been, GO!) The store is absolutely beautiful, and I want everything! (They have great men’s clothes too!) It’s a little on the pricier side, but they have amazing sales! They usually put items on sale, and then they’ll run promos – (i.e. 30% off sale!) I scooped this dress up while I was there..
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. We both love to shop early for the holidays, but always wait until after Thanksgiving is over. Now, it’s Cyber Monday, and we’re ready to shop! We’ve made our lists so now it is time to start checking some gifts off the list (and maybe something for ourselves, too!)
Here’s some of the sites we’re shopping today:
Is it just me, or did this year FLY by?! I’m not totally sure where 2017 went, but just like most of you, I do loveeee the holidays! It’s just hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that they’re here!!
I typically don’t start my holiday shopping until after Thanksgiving, but I usually start looking for Christmas pajamas. One of my favorite traditions that I do with my family is get a matching pajama set with my mom and Devin.
A lot of the time, the popular sets sell out really fast so the key is to start looking for them early! Below, I linked a few of my favorites. They’re all under $100! (I have my eye on the striped J.Crew set for this year..)
Happy Friday! I’m super excited to share this post with you today because combat boots have been one of my absolute favorite trends this season. It’s such a fun trend, because they are so versatile and can be styled in a ton of different ways.
Last month, Emily and I were shopping in Lincoln Park and we went into Lori’s Shoes. (If you live in Chicago, I highly recommend going into their store on Armitage – they have all the great designers the department stores carry, but they have unique styles!!) I found this pair of maroon combat boots, and I truthfully haven’t been able to take them off.
So far, I’ve styled the boots with jeans and a graphic, t-shirt, but I’ve also worn them with long dresses and skirts. In this post, I’ve styled the boots with this long, ruffled dress and fringe jacket – I thought they brought a fun, edgy look to my outfit.
What do you think of this trend? Would love to hear your thoughts!
The temps have really dropped here in Chicago, making it officially sweater season! I’ve been on the hunt for some fun sweaters. With the upcoming move and the holidays quickly approaching, I’ve been trying to spend less (especially on clothes). I rounded up a few sweaters that I’m currently loving, for under $100! Items linked below:)
Hi friends, happy Wednesday! I’m really excited today because in exactly 1 week, I’ll be moving apartments! It’s not a huge move but, I’m looking forward to some change. I’ve been living in a small studio in the Gold Coast for the past two years. Now, I’m headed to Old Town, still in a studio, but it’s totally different– more spacious, and updated! The best part is that I’ll be super close to Em and Kurt- they can’t seem to escape me (LOL)!
Anyway, this upcoming move has really brought out my creative side. Going into this new place, I decided that I want it to be super glam, feminine and somewhat, over the top! I think this will be my last apartment in the city where I can truly have fun with a space thats totally mine!! To get ideas, I’ve been browsing Pinterest and wanted to share a few of my favorites with you!
Looking forward to sharing pictures of my new place soon! xx
Happy Thursday! I don’t know about you, but I’m having a MAJOR moment with all of the fun, fall trends! It feels that this year, I’ve been shopping more than usual (whoops!!) because there are so many pretty trends happening! I’m loving all things velvet, brocade and embroidered. They’re so fun and different for fall!
A few weekends ago, Devin and I did a little fall shopping at Lori’s Shoes in Lincoln Park, and I found these amazing embroidered mules! For everyday, I normally dress pretty casual – so I thought these were fun, but added a pop of color and some interest to a very simple look.
As most of you know, I’m not one who takes big fashion risks – and these mules are different for me! I’ve had so much fun wearing them so far, and have dressed them up and down.
Hey guys, happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great week!
A few weeks ago, I was in Highland Park and I stumbled across Rock N Rags, which is seriously the coolest boutique, EVER! I ended up purchasing this dress, a fun jumpsuit and the jeans I posted on Monday. Nothing in the store is over $100, how cool is that?
Lately, I’ve been loving wrap dresses because they are so easy to throw on! I paired this polka-dot wrap dress with one of my favorite fall hats (I found this one at Forever 21 last year and wear it all the time!!)
Hi loves! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start.
After a busy weekend, I’m looking forward to having a productive week. Monday’s are always a good day to reset and refocus.. don’t you think?!
I’ve been really excited to share this look with you guys because these jeans are everything. Seriously, EVERYTHING! I found them at the cutest boutique in Highland Park (more to come in Friday’s post), but they are legit the comfiest pair I own. Em and I always have a hard time finding denim that we love, but I found this pair for under $100. Emily went out and bought the same pair..
I paired the jeans with this fun, bell-sleeved top from Target. This Fall, it’s all about the unique detailing – with embroidery, lace, or ruffles. This top comes in black and grey, and I loved it so much, I bought both colors. I know I’ll get SO much use out of them all fall and winter.
