Holiday Gift Guide * Men

20161202_01

I’m a whizz when it comes to shopping but not when it involves shopping for a man! I suck at buying gifts for my poor husband. This year, I decided to step up my gift giving game and spent hours browsing my favorite stores for stylish gift ideas. If you are like me and generally stay away from techie things and gadgets (because he prefers to research and buy those on his own), this holiday gift guide might be a good cheat sheet. And I think the man in your life might appreciate the style boost!

For men, a good jacket, amazing accessories and killer shoes are key. I think that men also appreciate basics that feel really nice. Lately, I’ve been giving Chris a mini makeover. He’s not as bold about fashion as I am but I can tell he appreciates stylish elements. We switched out his cologne from the classic Bleu de Chanel to the more modern scent by Carven. We’re trying out some new sneakers. And he recently requested skinny jogger pants and “cool funky dress socks.” I also think he needs a new wallet with a sexy snake slithering across the cover! Definitely!

Black Friday Sales Part II

20161121_01

Ready for more Black Friday sales? This weekend will be a great opportunity to buy holiday gifts or update your wardrobe for the winter season (I’m planning to revamp my sweater shelf this year). As I mentioned in the previous post, many stores are likely to have sitewide promotions and it helps to be prepared. I like to browse in advance and make a list of my favorites. I shared my picks from Club Monaco, Ann Taylor, Express, Banana Republic and Steve Madden. These are a few more goodies on my wish list this weekend:

MADEWELL

ANTHROPOLOGIE

OLD NAVY

BAUBLEBAR

In addition, Net-a-Porter is having an amazing sale right now and things are selling out quickly. You don’t want to miss this one!

Black Friday Sales Part I

20161120_01

Black Friday sales are coming up and I aim to keep my shopping as quick and efficient as possible. (So that I have more time to spend with my family!) Many stores have held sitewide promotions in the past and I expect the same this year. I like to be prepared so I pinned my favorites from a few stores that I visit frequently, which are featured below. As soon as the sales hit the web and I’ve gobbled up my last bite of pumpkin pie, I am planning to handle all my shopping with just a few clicks.

Dressing Up For Holiday Parties

20161114_01

Are you ready for the holidays? It’s coming up quickly and this year, I am determined to wear something other than that lacy LBD that I’ve been recycling for years. I’m crushing on velvet. Feather heels are high on my wish list and statement jewelry is always a must! These are a few of my favorite things, just in case you are planning to take advantage of turkey day sales to turn up that sparkle for holiday parties. Shine on loves! :)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Starts Today!

20160713_01

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today for Nordstrom cardholders! This sale is one of Nordie’s biggest sales of the year and a great opportunity to pick up some new things for fall. Remember these are new season items that are on sale for a limited time and prices will go back up in a few weeks.

SHOP OUTERWEAR

A quick way to freshen up your wardrobe for fall is to add a new piece of outerwear. This drapey coat is sophisticated and modern while this suede moto jacket looks amazing for the price. I love wearing vests when the weather cools down and this leather moto vest could be the perfect thing to layer over flannel shirts and turtleneck sweaters.

SHOP BOOTIES

Booties are a great transitional piece because they look cute with summer dresses and just as cute with sweaters and jeans in the colder months. Stuart Weitzman makes beautiful, comfortable boots so I’m eyeing these berry colored ones to brighten up fall outfits and I’m loving the pointed toe and sleek design of these booties by Ivanka Trump.

SHOP OTK BOOTS

I’m looking forward to wearing my OTK boots again! I have two high heel pairs that I adore and I am now looking for a good low heel version to wear on chilly outings with my family. The problem is, I can’t decide between black or charcoal

SHOP BOTTOMS

When I shop, I’m drawn to jackets, dresses and tops so I have to remind myself to think about my bottoms. Bottoms tend to be basic but this sale might be a good time to try something new like jeans with a cool hem, leather leggings (so good!) and high waisted pants with a kicky cropped leg.

SHOP ACCESSORIES

You know I’m all about the accessories. I’m telling you, good accessories can take a cute outfit to another level! I believe that a good hat and statement sunglasses are worth the splurge and when it comes to jewelry, I love both the classic and the cool.

SHOP HANDBAGS

Aaaaaand… handbags are the ultimate accessory. I can’t believe this popular style is on sale and I love the idea of a soft suede bag in rich colors like berry and cognac.

In the coming weeks, I’ll provide updates on the sale so check back often! Happy shopping my loves!
