Sometimes a little something goes a long way, and that’s especially true with gifts. Whether you’re buying for friends or neighbors, family or coworkers, one of these simple holiday finds under $50 could be a perfect fit. I love both giving and receiving a surprise present around the holidays, so I like having little goodies on hand for just that reason.
Holidays are meant for making the most important people in your life feel loved and special – which can make gift-giving all the more stressful. When it comes to your best friends, you can often pick them up something you’ve had your eye on for yourself (having the same great taste helps!). Shop my favorite picks for the besties in your life.
It’s finally the time of year that coats are no longer optional. I hate when we get here after fall quickly passes us by, and winter is on the horizon. Having a few options for outerwear makes it a lot less unbearable, as I can wear a nice wool coat to go to drinks with friends, wear my parka to trek to the office, or throw on my puffer for a day in the snow. Shop my favorites from every category for every budget (or add them to your Christmas list).
I can’t believe that we’re already in mid-November. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly summer flies by, but it is always disappointing! The only silver lining is that with fall comes fall fashion. I did love being able to throw on a pair of jean shorts and a t-shirt and have my outfit made, but there is something to be said for getting to pull jeans, jackets and sweaters out of storage.
There are a few key staples that I feel like my wardrobe is missing that need to be fixed before I can be fully ready for the new season.
Suede is one of my favorite materials for fall. There’s something about the sturdy yet soft texture that is perfect for boots, skirts and everything in between. I particularly like finding pieces in nontraditional colors, making for a very fitting statement piece. Shop some of my favorite pieces that will fit perfectly into your fall wardrobe.
I’m always on the hunt for cute glasses, as I get bored easily wearing the same pair day after day. I was so excited when Optically reached out to share the pretty finds they have on their website for budget-friendly prices.
I’m finally starting to get those fall feelings – the temperatures are hovering closer to 70 than 90 most days, and my beloved skinny jeans are very much back in rotation! It has me wearing less of my favorite dresses, and seeking out cute tops more and more.
I have a handful of things I’ve had my eye on to boost my wardrobe for the upcoming season. I like to pick key pieces that will be wearable over and over again, rather than getting statement finds that I’ll only be able to wear every once in a while.
I particularly love jewel tones come fall. One that I tend to overlook is the gorgeous sapphire – also the birthstone for this month.
Happy September! With the start of a new month marks the end of August, and my no-shopping month. I do think that I learned a lot in taking an entire month to take shopping off of the table. Not only did I save money, but I wore some pieces that I haven’t in a long time – or finally cut the cord and donated them.
