Gifts for the Fashionista {All Under $100}





Sometimes those fashionable ladies in your life can be a little tough to shop for, especially when you're on a budget.  They either already have everything, or the things you want to get them may come with a hefty price tag.  Today I'm sharing some great gift options for a fashionista, and everything is under $100.  If you're looking to get her something cozy, lace up sweaters are a must have this season, and I am in love with this sweatshirt by Sincerely Jules.  She may already have all the it bags, but does she have a velvet clutch?  Since velvet is huge this season, velvet accessories make a great gift option, including these velvet booties, which come in several colors.  In my opinion, you can never go wrong with jewelry, and this statement necklace or a fun pair of earrings will be sure to put a smile on any fashionista's face.  Fashion and coffee table books are always one of my favorite gifts to receive, and if she is into fashion or blogging, this book is a must have.

White Oversized Blazer For The Holidays


Once again, another weekend bites the dust.  Did everyone have a good one?  Mine was mostly spent on the couch taking care of two sick boys.  After a Friday night visit to the doctor's office, we concluded that they both just have colds, but you would think it was something worse by their level of crankiness.  Boys.  Thank goodness I had plenty of wine to help me through the whining.  Honestly though, there is nothing worse than when your kids aren't feeling well, and hopefully these colds will be gone soon.   I did manage to get out Sunday to take some blog photos, and attend a little blogger gathering and brunch the Alexis Bittar store on Newbury street.  The winter collection is gorgeous!  If you're still looking for a perfect gift, and thinking jewelry, I highly recommend Alexis Bittar.  I'm personally obsessed with this collar necklace and these fringe earrings.

This is actually the look that I wore to the blogger brunch yesterday.  Oversized blazers have forever been a staple in my closet, but I only recently added this white blazer, thinking it was perfect for the holidays.   There is something about a white blazer or jacket that can easily dress up an outfit, and make you look polished whether you are wearing a formal dress or a pair of ripped jeans.  I chose to pair it with black high rise jeans and a silk camisole for a relaxed, yet put together look, that was perfect for brunch. (This would also be a great option for a less formal holiday party).  This is by far my favorite camisole in my closet.   Unfortunately, I think it's sold out in the blush, but it does comes in black and red, which is perfect for the holidays.  It is also 20%, but hurry, the sale ends 12/11!  I finished my look with layered gold necklaces and my studded heels, which are back in stock!

Cropped, Cabled, and Tiered + WW Link Up


Happy December my friends.  The fact that we are in the last month of the year has me dumbfounded.  Where did the last three months go?  I just hope time slows down for the next few weeks so we can enjoy the holiday season, and everything that we are thankful for.  Speaking of, one of the little things I am thankful for is finding a bell/tiered sleeve top that doesn't get in my food every time that I eat (as I said, the little things).  I have been loving the bell sleeve style, but the practicality of wearing the trend on an daily basis, being a stay at home mom, has been zero.  That is, until this tiered flare sleeved sweater arrived at my doorstep.  Not only is this cable knit cozy, but because the sleeves are shorter, they aren't constantly getting in my way every time that I eat, or change a diaper.  Although this sweater is not technically cropped, it is on the short side, so I paired it with high rise jeans and grey booties, for a stylish everyday look.  The great thing about this sweater is that it can easily be dressed up.  I'm thinking of pairing it with this skirt and heels for a fun holiday outfit.

PS. Because I am always cold, I wore this sweater last weekend in Killington, Vt with a long sleeve tee under it.  I love how the sleeves to my shirt stuck out, adding a fun texture.

Little Gifts of Luxury





If you're looking for a gift that's going to make that lady in your life (whether it be your wife, mother, sister, or girl friend) feel extra special, then one of these little gift of luxury will do just that.  In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a cashmere scarf, because who wouldn't want to wrap themselves up in one on a cold day, and a great smelling candle will put a smile on any ones face.  Speaking of face, make hers glow with this La Mer gift set, and these Sk-11 face masks will leave her feeling radiant.  If she's been really good this year (hint hint Mike) a designer shoe, bag, or belt will keep her smiling all year long.

Crochet For The Holidays, and Coach's Rexy Wristlet


Did everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and do a lot of shopping this past weekend?  I ordered some fun Black Friday and Cyber Monday goodies and can't wait for them to arrive.  Speaking of, a lot of stores are continuing their sales through today, so it's not too late to grab those items that you have been eying.  This off-the-shoulder crochet top is an additional 25% off until the end of today, making it only $34!  You all know of my obsession with off-the-shoulder tops, but I'm also loving the crochet detailing making such a pretty blouse for the holidays.  Also, the cinched waisted hides the food baby that I tend to get from all the indulging I do during the holiday season!  This top would look great tucked into a skirt or paired with velvet pants for a holiday party, but I wore it with my black high rise jeans and studded heels for a date night with my husband.  

How cute is this wristlet?  It's part of Coach's Rexy Collection, which has become very popular this holiday season.  Although I'm not the largest fan of dinosaurs, I do find Rexy the Dino to be adorable.  Plus, the twins love dinosaurs and get excited every time they see me using the wristlet.  They begin to roar, which always puts a smile on my face.   You can check out the Rexy Collection here, and if you know someone who loves dinosaurs, they make a great gift!
