12 Things You Need on Your Holiday Gift List

It is that time of year again! Here is my list of great and meaningful gifts for your family and friends. I chose these items that I would absolutely purchase for myself, and that I feel could be used throughout the years (not just during the holiday season). 

Here are my top 12 items for your holiday gift list:

$98 (+ $10 for monogramming)

This bag adorable for when you don't want to carry a lot, and it can add a great pop of color to an outfit. PLUS you can get it monogrammed!


This is a great outerwear piece, especially to stay warm in the winter months.


These horoscope charm bangles make a great personalized gift, and is also classic piece (with a unique twist!) that can be worn for years.


Adorable baseball cap for the winter time.


C. Wonder has a variety of smoking slippers that will add a unique touch to any outfit. 
If you visit J.Crew Factory, they also has a variety of smoking slippers for $58.


Both hilarious books by successful and inspiring women. 


Everyone could use a cute and cozy pair of pajama pants!


A little bit of bling makes a sweater special. They have a variety of pretty sweaters for reasonable prices on their website.

$32 (+ $10 monogramming)

This leather pouch wallet is great for small purses, plus it can also be monogrammed!


I love coffee, and have been using pour overs for years. This handcrafted stone pour over with matching coffee mug is perfect for making a single cup, and makes a unique gift.

Madewell - Pomme Frites Candle Co. Teakwood or Grapefruit Candle


The candles are homemade from soy wax, and smell INCREDIBLE. 


This business card holder is personalized with an initial and comes in a variety of colors. Great for someone who starting to go out into the real world!

I hope you got some inspiration my list of holiday gifts! What is on your wish list this year?


Happy Turkey Day! It is snowing quite a bit, but here is a look at Thanksgiving outfit of the day.

Dress: J. Crew
Button Down: Marshalls

Necklace: J. Crew

Boots: Clarks

Bracelets (Left to Right): Francesca's Collections, Gift

I hope you are staying warm and spending time with your friends and family! I am so thankful to be able to be with mine today. What are you thankful for this holiday season?

Coral Sweater and Statement Stones

I came home this weekend to get my hair chopped off! I cut off about 5 inches, and got some side bangs (which I can't stop playing with). I absolutely love that my hair now looks and feels healthy, and I don't have to worry about my tangled ends anymore.

As it has been getting colder, I have been wearing my heavier water proof Michael Kors coat. This coat was a gift, and it is not only warm and cozy, but classic that I can use for a long time. 

I enjoy having investment pieces, but I am convinced that it does not have to cost a lot to make an outfit look expensive. I am all about shopping sales and knowing when to find the best deals at stores. 

This coral sweater is from Old Navy and I purchased it for $7 (normally $30) after Christmas last year. My cream belt is from J. Crew, and I purchased it for under $10 during an extra 40% off sale, and my student discount.

Finding some inexpensive pieces to add to your wardrobe is all about timing, and if you purchase at the very end of the season you will catch the best deals.

Jeans: Gap
Boots: Old Navy

(both were also sale finds)

 I bought this J. Crew inspired statement stone necklace from Target, which you can purchase by clicking here! It is very similar in design to some of the more expensive J. Crew necklaces, and I actually got mine on clearance for $10 at my local Target. 

Watch: Kate Spade

This watch goes nicely with the necklace, and picks up the same gold and sparkle in the stones. 

I hope you find some great deals this holiday season! I can't believe it is almost Thanksgiving, which also means my semester is almost over. I can't wait to finally finish all these projects and assignments due for finals, and spend more time blogging this winter.

8 Times Taylor Swift Rocked October

Taylor Swift's style has been in the spotlight while promoting her new album 1989. She has become a trend setter this October with her eclectic and chic fashion, and adorable new hair cut. 

1) Jewel Tones

While promoting 1989 on Good Morning America, Taylor Swift wore this jewel toned cobalt and teal two-piece dress. 

2) Black and White Chevron
 (From InStyle)

In London, Taylor wore this black knit chevron patterned two-piece. She brightened it up with these playful pink Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. 

3) Mixing Patterns
(From InStyle)

Taylor rocks a gingham orange and grey jacket overtop a checkered grey and black dress. She tops it off with simple black tights, booties, and Rag & Bone hat.

4) Vintage Florals

Taylor is known for incorporating vintage silhouettes into her wardrobe, and this two-piece top and shorts combo is classic T-Swift style. The vintage floral pattern across the whole outfit is smartly paired with some strappy colbalt heels. 

5) Proportions

Taylor rocks her long legs by wearing this preppy green and black stripped mini dress. She adds a pop of color to contrast the look with these bright pink pumps.

6) Oversized
 (From Taylor Pics)

Taylor wears this oversized burgundy sweater over a grey mini dress and black tights, mixing both feminine and masculine elements. She tops off the look with Jimmy Choo booties and a black bowler hat. 

7) Color Blocking
 (From Taylor Pics)

This color blocked pink and orange crewneck sweater is classic and casual for everyday wear.  Pairing it with these slim tan pants and jeweled Miu Miu flats really lets the outfit pop. 

8) Humor
(From Pop Sugar)

Lastly, Taylor Swift isn't afraid of being herself. Her hilarious "pegacorn" Halloween costume shows that even though T-Swift is busy, she still has time to have fun,

Taylor Swift is rocking this October with her album success and being to queen of social media with her fans. This past year she has transitioned from a country inspired girl to a chic and sophisticated pop star, and I can't wait to see what is in store with her 1989 tour!
