Christmas Gifts Under $50.

Happy Tuesday before Christmas babes. 

I am so sorry for not posting anything until now, I was sick again and just now starting to feel better. On the positive side, at least this means that I will be healthy for Christmas. Speaking of Christmas, can you believe that we are only a week away from Christmas Eve? This time of the year just flies by, and in a blink of an eye it is January. And HELLO winter.

However, with Christmas fast approaching, I am here to help with all of those last minute gift ideas. I also know that this time of year we are all spending more money then usual – from holiday parties, to Secret Santa, to gifts for friends and family. Today, I’ll be sharing some of my faves, from cozy sweaters, to jewelry, a wine rack, scented candles, and much more. The best part??? Everything is $50 and under so you won’t be breaking the bank this holiday season.

Hey guys!

I am so sorry that I have been MIA for the past two weeks. First, I had a horrible sinus infection, so I was down for the count. This led right into Thanksgiving week, which is always hectic for everyone. However, I am feeling better, and back on track with everything. This time of year always seems to go by in a blink of an eye, and we sometimes forget to just take a second to live in the moment, and enjoy all that the season has to offer. 

This is also the time of year when we have so many social gatherings and shopping to do. Well, I am here to help make that part a little less stressful. Throughout the month I’ll be sharing some of my fave looks for the season that range from casual to dressy. Did I mention Christmas sweaters and accessories???? Yes, I am not afraid to wear a Christmas sweater, or carry a Elf cross-body. We’ve gotta be festive! 

For today’s look I’ll be sharing  a cute, yet cozy and comfy, outfit to do all of your holiday shopping in. 

Today’s Look:

Oversized SweaterMy sweater is from the end of last winter, but I was able to find a very similar one in the same color and cable knit material. I am one of those people that gets very warm very easily, so this chunky sweater provides just the right amount of warmth for those crazy cold days that lay ahead. 

This sweater comes in sizes S-XL and in several different colors.

Jeans – I am wearing a size 26, and while mine are from last year, I was able to find the same pair just in a different color. I love that they button up the front, so that they lay flatter, and it makes it easier to tuck your shirt in.

They come in sizes 23 – 32.

Pointed Toe Mule – I am wearing a size 7. These mules are so incredibly comfortable, and they provide great support.

They come in sizes 6 – 11 as well as half sizes.

Christmas CrossbodyOkay, so my bag is 3 years old….BUT I was able to find a similar bag that is sure to get you into the Christmas spirit.

I have also linked my favorite clutch company called, “Can’t Clutch This” that I have been shopping with for the past few years. It is subscription based, and you get a new fun clutch each month. They range from pop-tarts, to a pencil, to a glittery disco ball for NYE! Did I mention that they also had a pizza clutch???

Have a wonderful day!

Hello Vintage.

Hello Vintage.

Happy Tuesday! 

What is up with the weather? 60’s in the city yesterday, then freezing temps tomorrow, and then back into the 50’s! We are all going to be sick by the weekend due to the changing temps hahaha. While I do love the first snowfall, I am not so sure if I am ready for it just yet, but at least it will look pretty! The city is already starting to decorate for Christmas, and the snow always looks like glitter on top of all the twinkling lights throughout the city. 

This constant change of weather also makes it incredibly difficult to figure out how to dress. I have all my winter gear out and ready to go. But you bundle up and get hot halfway through the day, or in my case, when I get to the subway…haha. I have the perfect wool coat for days like this, when it still isn’t cold enough to wear your down coat, but not warm enough to just wear a jacket. My mom gave it to me when I moved to the city three years ago (thanks mom), and she had it for over 10 years! I get more compliments on this coat then I do on anything else. While I know this coat is old, don’t worry, I found four similar ones that are also from Ann Taylor. 

Today’s Look:

Coat This coat is almost the exact same as the one that I have photographed. Perfect for those chilly days in November and December, and it is the perfect coat for all of the holiday parties you will attend over the next two months.

This coat comes in sizes XXS – XXL, as well as regular, tall, and petite. 

I’ve also linked three other coats:

Turtleneck  – I am wearing a size medium petite in black. When I was little, I really did not like to wear turtlenecks. I don’t think I liked them because I wore a uniform to school, and during the winter we had to wear them, so I think I just wanted a change on the weekends. Now, I LOVE them and I think they are so comfy and cozy, especially during the winter. They also look great tucked into a pair of jeans. Great for casual Friday and a night out. 

This turtleneck comes in sizes XXS- XL, regular and petite, and in two different colors.

Happy Halloween.

Happy Halloween.

Happy Halloween my boos. 

Can you believe that it is already Halloween? I swear from now ’til New Year’s the time just flies by! That always makes me so sad, as it is my favorite time of the year. I wish these three months would just go at a slower pace, but that just means that we have to love and enjoy every second of it. Are you guys dressing up today or tonight? My sister and I will not be dressing up, but we will be giving out candy. We got the BIG bags so that there will be plenty for the trick-or-treaters…..and of course plenty left over for us hahaha. 

For today’s look I’ll be sharing some of my favorite fall staples – the oversize sweater, cozy vests, high wasted jeans, and the comfiest shoes ever, mules. 

Today’s Look:

Oversize Sweater  I am wearing a size small, and this sweater is so cozy I just want to wear it every day, but I won’t. It looks great with jeans, pants for work, tucked into a skirt, the list is endless. You can even layer by adding a turtleneck underneath when the temps drop. This sweater comes in sizes XS-XL, and in three different colors.

Puffer Vest – I am wearing a size small in black. I love that it is oversized because you can layer a long sleeve tee, sweater, sweatshirt, or oversized sweater underneath. This vest is super comfy, and it comes in sizes XS-XXL. The vest comes in regular, tall, and petite, as well as a wide variety of  colors. I am thinking of getting it in light pink as well.

Jeans – I am wearing a size 26, and while mine are from last year, I was able to find the same pair just in a different color. I love that they button up the front, so that they lay flatter, and it makes it easier to tuck your shirt in. They come in sizes 23 – 32. 

med_res (42)

Leopard Mules – I am wearing a size 7 and these mules are SO COMFY!!!! If I could wear them every day I would. I am not going to lie, I may have been wearing them almost every single day since buying them. They are the perfect shoe for work when you don’t want to wear a pair of heels, and they are perfect for the weekend too! They come in sizes 6-9 and in half sizes.

Happy Tuesday! 

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. The weather was gorgeous on Saturday; a perfect fall day. The city always has so many fun festivals and events during the Fall that all you want to do is spend all your time outside. My sister and I always go the outdoor market by our apartment, and they have the yummiest apple cinnamon bread. It tastes like french toast! The city goes all out during the holidays, from now through Christmas, the city is all decked out, and you can’t help but love it. I’ll be sharing some of those photos later this week, so stay tuned. 

For today’s post I’ll be sharing a Fall fave of mine – oversize sweaters. I swear I could wear them 24/7; not only are they cozy, but they go with everything. 

Today’s Look:

Oversize Sweater – I am wearing a size medium. When it comes to sweaters, I always go a size up. Sweaters tend to fit a bit snug around the chest, especially when you are petite, and have a larger chest like I do. This sweater washes great, and goes perfectly with everything. I’ve already worn mine to work.

They come in sizes XS-XXL and in several different colors.

Leggings – I am wearing a small petite in black, and these leggings are so comfy! I am so happy that stores like Ann Taylor are now carrying leggings, because you know that they are durable, and they will last for a long time. 

They come in sizes XXS-XXL, regular, tall, and petite, and in black and heather grey.

Leopard Mules – I am wearing a size 7 and these mules are SO COMFY!!!! If I could wear them every day I would. I am not going to lie, I may have been wearing them almost every single day since buying them. They are the perfect shoe for work when you don’t want to wear a pair of heels, and they are perfect for the weekend too!

They come in sizes 6-9 and in half sizes.

Sunglasses – I have so many sunglasses. I love all different styles and shades, but these sunglasses have become my favorite.

Happy Friday babes! 

Three cheers for the weekend. Are you guys doing anything fun? My sister and I are seeing friends, and of course taking a walk through the park because the weather is supposed to  be beautiful! I will say, that I just LOVED being home last weekend to celebrate our mom’s birthday. The weather was beautiful, and she had a beautiful weekend. It truly was just wonderful to be home. Nothing quite like Rehoboth Beach, especially in the Fall. 

Speaking of Fall, I hate starting to get out my winter coat and accessories for the impending winter. haha. So Fall truly is my favorite time of year because you can layer with cozy sweaters and vests, did I mention the cozy sweaters? hahaha. 

For today’s post, I’ll be sharing the perfect Fall look that you can even transition into the winter for a day where it isn’t freezing outside. 

Today’s Look:

Puffer Vest – I am wearing a size small in black. I love that it is oversized because you can layer a long sleeve tee, sweater, sweatshirt, or oversize sweater underneath. This vest is super comfy, and it comes in sizes XS-XXL. The vest comes in regular, tall, and petite, as well as a wide variety of  colors. I am thinking of getting it in light pink as well.

Leggings – I am wearing a size small in black. I love that you can dress these leggings up or down. Now that retailers like Banana Republic, White House Black Market, Nordstrom, and Ann Taylor are selling leggings, you know they are great quality and will last a very long time. They come in sizes XXS-XXL, and in petite and in grey.

Leopard Mules – I am wearing a size 7 and these mules are SO COMFY!!!! If I could wear them every day I would. I am not going to lie, I may have been wearing them almost every single day since buying them. They are the perfect shoe for work when you don’t want to wear a pair of heels, and they are perfect for the weekend too! They come in sizes 6-9 and in half sizes.

Mellow Yellow on this Rainy Day.

Mellow Yellow on this Rainy Day.

Happy rainy Wednesday. 

When the weather calls for mostly rain, the week always feels a bit longer and drawn out. All you want to do is snuggle up in a cozy sweater or jacket. However, even on rainy days, I love pops of color to brighten the day, or at least cheer you up. Sometimes living in New York Cit,y you feel like you need to dress like everyone else, but I love standing out with a bright bootie or pant. I have a fuscia colored trench coat in my closet, and anytime I wear it I am asked where it is from. Gotta love Zara. 

While I love color, I am also a fan of purchasing pieces that will last a very long time. I have clothes in my closet from Ann Taylor, Everlane, J.Crew, and Madewell that I’ve owned for a few years. Not only do they look brand new, but they never go out of style. The dress that I am sharing with you today is from Madewell, and it makes for the perfect transitional piece, and perfect fall and winter staple. 

Today’s Look:

Madewell Dress – I am wearing a size small, and I probably should have gone down a size as it runs big, but I actually like that it is bigger, so that I can pair it with a long sleeved ribbed top or turtleneck in the winter. Runs in sizes XXS – XL. Reduced from $89 to $59.

med_res (32)

Pointed Toe Block Heel – I am wearing a size 7. Since they have a block heel, they provide more support, and are comfortable to wear all day. I love that you can wear them with everything – from dresses to jeans, and they add the perfect height if you are petite like me. They run in sizes 5 – 11 as well as half sizes, and they are also offered in several different colors and patterns. Only $59. 

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
