With the countdown to New Year's Eve quickly dwindling I was starting to get a little worried about the most important thing--my outfit! Duh. Never mind the fact that I still have no idea what I'm actually doing, I thought I should at least have one of my bases covered. Enter: The Metallic Skirt. I snagged this speckled midi skirt at Nordstrom Rack and thought it would be the perfect thing to dress up or down. Just the right amount of glamour, while still being comfortable, practical, and most importantly, wearable into the wee hours of the New Year. If you're still procrastinating on your New Year's look, swing by Nordstrom Rack or throw on something--anything!--metallic or sparkly and call it a day. ;)

Holiday Wish List

All I want for Christmas is a little extra gold in my life and I would gladly take it in the form of a little gold druzy and a new Michael Kors beauty. I tried on this Kendra Scott ring last month and fell in love, but couldn't pull the trigger and I've been coveting it ever since. I could definitely wear it every day of my life though, so I think it's a good investment. Sign up for their mailing list to get 15% off! (Ahem--mom? dad? anyone?) ;) 

If you're not familiar with H. M. Willow, get in the know! Her bangles are stunning, but I've recently had my eye on her new druzy pieces. I just can't decide if I need a necklace or bracelet--or both!

Finally, is there any reason NOT to want a new Michael Kors watch? I'm going on two years with my favorite Jet Set watch, but I would gladly mix it up with this Lexington

What's on your holiday wish list?

Mad for Plaid...and Houndstooth

With the temperatures dropping and winter quickly approaching, scarves are becoming the easiest and most functional way to accessorize. My simple denim on denim look got an instant update thanks to a pop of... blanket scarf! Last season I completely missed out on the blanket scarf craze and I seem to be on a mission to make up for it this year. I picked up the infamous tartan scarf on eBay last month, but had also had my eye on this one for quite some time. When I saw it on Brina Box I knew I (might as well) snag it, and I have to say... I think I might like it even more than my tartan. Is it weird to say I think the tartan washes me out?! This one is double sided which means you get a mix of two of the seasons trendiest patterns, plaid and houndstooth, and of course, extra bang for your buck. With the multitude of ways to tie a blanket scarf (not to mention, it's actual function as a blanket!) it really is like getting at least(!) 10 different scarves in one.

It's really no secret that I happen to love gold. A lot. My go-to method of accessorizing is always gold, and lots of it. I'm always looking for new ways to add touches of gold to any look and this hashtag plate from TAudrey is literally the perfect thing. It's handmade with lots of love and is one of those wear-with-everything, never-want-to-take-it-off pieces. Delicate, but substantial. Sweet, but sophisticated. All in all classic and perfect, and a great piece to go with any look. 

I had been wanting a nameplate bar necklace for a while and when I saw that TAudrey had customizable plates I knew that their hashtag plate was the way to go. TAudrey says to "rock this hashtag plate to show off what makes you "you"...for a little reminder to celebrate your individuality and elegantly flaunt what means the world to you." I mean...how cute is that? It really is the perfect piece to celebrate YOU and after a little deliberation, I knew I would be happiest embracing my love for gold and got myself a little reminder to always stay #golden.

Ruffled

Cable knit sweaters and fall go hand in hand. Obviously. And now that there has been a steady chill in the air, I am in full-on sweater weather mode and ones that are easy to pull on and go are always a win. I love the classic cream and white versions, but never have I ever found a cable knit as adorable as this one from ASOS. It's pink and it's ruffled and I think that's kind of enough said. It's the perfect blend of classic and feminine, and pairs oh so perfectly with my favorite distressed denim.

The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is start my tea. Honestly, before I even take my dog out. It's that important. And so is having an adorable mug that makes drinking it even better, if that's even possible. Right? I think so. I had been wanting a simple, classic, and adorable mug for a while, and this one from Lola Accessories fits the bill. I mostly work from home, so most of the time I really am NOT so fancy, so I think it's also a little bit hilarious... Sitting at my desk in my pajamas, drinking my tea, with my dog waiting patiently for my last bite of almond butter toast. So fancy. But at least I have my mug. Classic, adorable, hilarious... pink. Win, win, win... win. 

Get 10% off your very own "I'm so fancy" mug (or any other Lola accessories) with code GMG10! They have some gorgeous jewels, plaid scarves, and even the famous herringbone vest dupe (on sale!)

Faux Fall Layers

I'm a big fan of layers and clothes that have built in layers are an automatic win in my book. This Goodnight Macaroon sweater is really kind of perfect and makes layering a breeze. With a knit sweater attached to a plaid flannel, you get the layered look without the hassles of extra bulk and fidgeting that comes along with it. I love that you get a peek of plaid just at the bottom and sides (and not the back), versus having a collar attached, which always makes me feel a little too preppy for my taste. It's the perfect mix of classic and chic with just a touch of fall. 

I paired it with plenty of gold, the most perfect edgy/sweet necklace, and my favorite jeans in the history of ever. Seriously, Jbrand super skinnies are the best jeans ever and I don't know what I'd do without them. If you've never tried Jbrand jeans, you're in luck, because they're on Hautelook today at over 60% off!

Make it POP

One of my favorite things about Instagramming is coming across so many amazing bloggers, connecting with so many sweet girls, and stumbling upon so many unique shops. One shop that instantly POPPED (wink, wink) for me was PoppyClips! If you're not familiar with PoppyClips, do yourself a favor and go check them out. They're basically a little strip of fabric with button and bauble details that when you fold in half are magnetized together, creating the cutest little clip that you can POP onto sleeves, pants, skirts, tops of shoes, scarves...really anywhere you can think of. You can even use them as a temporary hem for those annoying sleeves that won't stay pushed up. 

I have several adorable patterned ones, but was so excited to get a couple solid ones like these black ones with a GOLD honeycomb detail. They're so unique and fun and really do add a great pop of interest to any look. I instantly knew I wanted to pair the black ones against black, so that the gold really popped, and I can't wait to use them to add a touch of gold to sweaters and blouses this holiday season. Because really, I will never have too much gold in my life. Never.

My Jbrand luxe sateen skinnies, Dolce Vita ankle boots and a little leopard finished off this neutral look with a POP.
