Valentine's Day Outfit Ideas

Valentine's Day Outfit Ideas

Happy Friday, friends! With Valentine's Day around the corner, I wanted to get a quick post up with a bit of my Valentine's Day outfit inspo. I'm really not one for going all-out with red and pink dresses but I think a little hint of color never hurt anyone and I know in the few (read one) time I wore red, my boyfriend did compliment me, so there's that. I just snagged this perfect off-shoulder sweater in red and can't wait to wear it. 

I also added a bunch of tops that will look great with your favorite denim for V-day whether it's celebrated with your beau or gal-pals. For the white tops, just add a touch of pink or red in a shoe, bag or accessory and you're good to go with a moto jacket for the evening. 

Happy month of love, babes!

Holiday Style - Outfit Ideas for New Year's!

Happy holidays! In case you're still shopping for holiday styles I wanted to round up some ideas for you—from trusted denim to sequins and velvet! These would all be great options for New Year's Eve!

If you're a jeans girl (like me), holiday style is as easy as slipping into your favorite denim and adding a festive top. Think holiday tones like burgundy and red or go all-out with sequin styles. A pair of glam heels, sleek flats or booties is the perfect finishing footwear and I would always add a moto jacket to complete the look.

Denim + Glam Top

In keeping with the comfy(ish) theme, I love the idea of a glam (i.e. metallic or sequin) mini skirt paired with a cozy cable knit sweater and booties. 

Mini Skirt + Sequins

There's just nothing like being in pants, so I thought a pair of velvet pants would be a great alternative to denim for a festive twist. Pair with a cozy cream sweater or add a feminine blouse. You could just as easily swap out the velvet for sequins or corduroy! 

Velvet Pants + Sweater

And if you're a dress kinda girl, I love an easy maxi or jumpsuit in a sleek style (or a sequin mini for sparkle!) topped with a moto jacket for added edge and extra warmth. Just add sparkly or metallic heels!

Holiday Dress or Jumpsuit

Thanks for reading and enjoy your holiday season!

Gift Guide for Her - Under $50

Gift Guide for Her under $50

Next up in my holiday gift guide series is a Gift Guide for Her under $50! I wanted to include an assortment of pieces you could gift to almost any lady on your list, whether it's your mom, BFF, mother-in-law, coworker—really anyone! And I kept it under $50 because I think it's a bit more relatable and realistic for real life.

Beauty Gifts for Her

For an easy beauty buy, I love Dior Lip Glow. I have it in 001 Universal Pink and it's a natural, balmy pink that's supposed to color-adjust to your own unique chemistry making it goof-proof in terms of color selecting. I also love the Urban Decay Naked Basics eyeshadow palette because it really is basic and is another one that's universal. The color "Naked 2" is a great crease color and is pretty much the one and only eyeshadow I wear! And, every girl needs a beautyblender and if you don't have one—you're missing out!! I also really love the look of nude, clean nails and while a bit pricey for nailcare, Perfect Formulas Gel Coat is the absolute best of the best. 

You can't go wrong with something cozy and these bear bootie slippers are too cute, cozy and cuddly. I also love the classic color of this plush scarf and would kill to cozy up in this fleece throw blanket from Urban Outfitters

Cozy Gifts for Her

For the home, I think pretty candles always make a great gift and you can't go wrong with a cute clutch or wallet or something for the bar cart!

Gift Guide - For Home

gift guide for home

Happy holiday season! I can't believe it's already December. This year has flown by and we're back to holiday style posts and gift guides. You guys really enjoyed my Gift Guide for Me, so I wanted to do another one with my Gift Guide for Home. I moved into my new apartment last year and have been slowly but surely filling it with all my favorite things, i.e., making it a home. I feel like I'm in a constant state of having things on 'my list', so I thought it'd be fun to share some of my current favorites/general gift ideas for the home. I hope it's helpful!

A few things on the list? 

Coffee/tea anything! I think I've shared before I was on a tea kick after switching from coffee to green tea a few years ago. Well, I'm back on coffee and have found myself reliant on the coffee station in my apartment complex, morning trips to Starbucks, and most recently, instant coffee packets—which I'm not hating on, sometimes you just need to be caffeinated in an instant. BUT, I think it's time to get my very own big-girl coffee machine again and am absolutely loving copper touches. How cute is this Technivorm Glass Coffee Maker from Williams Sonoma? This Cuisinart Coffee Maker from Sur La Table is also super affordable—i.e., under $100! Don't miss an extra 20% off with code GIFT17. It comes out to just over $70. 

Gifts for the Coffee Lover

I think I've also mentioned how terrible I've been at keeping plants alive. Why I didn't get my grandma's green thumb, I'll never know and still cry about to this day. I've been trying to add more 'fake life' as I like to call it to my apartment and particularly love this cute faux fiddle leaf fig tree. It's so easy to grab some sort of terrain gift for the home and they're so very 'on-trend' that I thought something 'green' would make a great gift.

Gifts for a (not-so)Green Thumb

Moving on to the bar area, I've been wanting to try a wine purifier for a while and thought it would make a great gift. From what I've heard, the sulfites (or preservatives) in wine are what can cause allergic reactions like flushing, congestion, hives, etc and (though I don't think it's proven) maybe headaches. I love wine but do often get that next-day headache even after just one glass. I know organic wines are supposed to help but I've also had my eye on a purifier to filter out the sulfites from any bottle. I thought this could be a great gift for a wino—or someone who wants to be but can't hang, ha!

As always, I also still have a bar cart on my list and I love the classic yet antique-y mix of wood and brass on this Mid-Century Bar Cart from West Elm

Gifts for the Bar Cart

Finally, in the unique/random/miscellaneous category...I've mentioned I'm recently very into candles and used to sort off loathe receiving them but now I'd take 100. Consider giving the gift of a good-smelling home with an electric diffuser—be sure to include a few scented oils! I also thought this Planter Phone Dock was just really cool, unique and most importantly, useful. 

Miscellaneous Home Gifts

Whether these are a gift for a loved one, a white elephant or a gift for you (I won't tell), I think there's something for everyone. What are you still shopping for this season? I'd love to know.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your week!
