Holiday Gifting Inspiration

I’m planning on wrapping up my Christmas shopping this weekend, so thought I would share a fun holiday gift guide with you all in case you are looking for a little last-minute inspiration!

Most of these items are on major sale right now, so not only are they all a great deal, but there is definitely something for everyone on this list! And if you aren’t one to brave the crazy holiday crowds, you can get all of these items shipped to you in time for Christmas too, but you’ll have to order soon because time is ticking!  For more inspiration, you can also check out my Monogram Gift Guide here.  Holiday Gift Guideone | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine | ten | eleven | twelve | thirteen | fourteen | fifteen | sixteen

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Holiday Ready

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is dressing up for Holiday parties.  And sequins of course.  Lots and lots of sequins!  So when I saw this darling silver matte sequin swing dress at Fira (one of my favorite online boutiques), I knew it would be perfect for the holiday season!

For today’s post,  I’m styling it with a gorgeous blush jacket (that is UNDER $40, BTW), and my favorite floral crown, by the talented Miss Stevi Marie.  But I already have a laundry list of other ways I plan to wear this dress over the coming weeks.  In fact, I’m thinking of wearing it over a Christmas plaid button down to a party this coming weekend.  And how cute would it look with a black leather jacket?  The possibilities are endless with this one, laides!  PLUS it’s under $80!  As always, details are at the bottom of the post…

December Rain

We have had an unusually warm and dry winter here in the SLC thus far.  So when the rain and sleet started coming down this past weekend, I was actually a little thrilled because I am hoping for a white Christmas (duh!), but also a little bummed because rain and blog photos usually don’t mix.  But we managed to take cover and get these shots done.  And guess what?  I’m rocking green again (in a little different shade than Monday’s post) for the holiday season!  This outfit is an easy one to put together and perfect for a holiday party-especially when paired back a red lip!

There’s No Place Like Home

I adore the Wizard of Oz and would even go as far as to say that it’s my very favorite move of all time. And when I was a little girl, I dreamed of having my own pair of ruby slippers. So when I saw these gorgeous, sparkly, pumps at Macy’s a few months ago, I was immediately taken back to my childhood dream and knew I had to have them. And even though they are silver and not red, they still make me feel like if I click my heels together, I just might wake up in Kansas…

I love my sparkly shoes back to this outfit.  I always  think it’s fun to pair the unexpected together.  And a pair of super sparkly shoes back to a casual plaid button down and cozy knit scarf is just that.

Hope you are all having a great week!!
