Tomorrow I’ll be heading on a plane heading back to California! Before I leave snowy NYC, I wanted to put together one last gift guide for the year- the under $10 set. These gifts are perfect little presents to give to family/friends or to use as stocking stuffers. I hope you enjoyed my gift guide series this year and that you picked up a few ideas. Also, don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see which holiday hairstyle I chose!
H&M Mini Cake Stand (in my dreams my kitchen is filled with pretty pieces like this cake stand) // Swedish Dream Sea Salt Soap // Joe Fresh Glitter Skinny Belt (I’ll admit it- I like sparkly things!) // Modcloth Elephant Earrings // Poppin White Small Notebook with Gold Initial (as soon as I saw this notebook, I had to have it, so I bought one for myself!) // Modcloth Lovin Spoonfuls Set // Essie Encrusted Treasures Ignite the Night (I’m thinking this is the perfect NYE polish) // Kate Spade Saturday Morning Mug (this mug is on sale right now and I’m finding it really difficult to resist) // J. Crew Printed Playing Cards (get 30% off these pretty cards with the code GIFTNOW)
H&M Hat and Mittens (love this soft grey color) // H&M Knit Sweater (a perfect winter sweater) // Julep Little Lights Set (this set is way too adorable) // Aeropostale Bubble Dot Scarf (I have this scarf and can vouch for its coziness!) // Furbish Ace Bottle Opener (how fun is this bottle opener?) // Modcloth Write Me Notecard Set (because you can never have enough stationery) // Madewell Sunglasses Case (I’m loving this plaid case) // Nate Berkus for Target Decorative Box (a pretty box for storage) // Target Crossbody Handbag (this bag would be perfect for holiday festivities) // Pretty Polaroid Notes (write on these or use them as decoration) // H&M Glass Bottle (a pretty bottle for your bar) // Gold Stripe Mini Emergency Kit (a cute and practical gift)
Finally, Thanksgiving is almost here! To all my American readers, Happy Thanksgiving! I’m heading over to my friend’s house in Brooklyn tomorrow to do lots and lots of cooking and eating. Then I’m planning take advantage of the Black Friday sales and check off a few gifts from my list. I’ll be taking the rest of the week off so I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you here next week!
Tell me: Will you be doing any shopping on Black Friday?
Izola Dopp Kit (I don’t really know why, but I love the word dapper. A present that’s functional and stylish!) // Topshop Stud Crossbody Bag // H&M Faux Fur Jacket // Kate Spade Champagne Bottle Coin Purse // J. Crew Factory Sequin Bow Cardigan (bows and sequins? this cardigan needs to stop with its cuteness!) // Ted Baker Metallic Bow Tablet Case (so girly) // Biscuit Happy Hour Tray // Sole Society Jocelyn Pump
Looking at these pictures reminds me that sadly the days for bare legs are quickly dwindling. These were taken a few months ago, when the weather was still muggy and the leaves hadn’t changed color yet.
I love the pretty pattern and colors on this dress. I feel like summer is the perfect time to go crazy with all the bright colors in your wardrobe. Now that the weather is significantly cooler, I find that I’m drawn back to darker colors like black and navy. In fact, last week I wore three all-black (or nearly all-black) outfits in a row- that’s just what I was in the mood for.
Tell me: Do you wear brighter or darker colors in the fall/winter?
