What I’m Loving Right Now

A handful of my favorite things right now… 

Some for my closet and a few for gifting! 

ONE

Fuzzy socks are key this time of year! I always like to keep a few pairs

on hand for easy stocking stuffers that are always put to good use!

TWO

An expensive looking bag with a not so expensive price tag.

This Sole Society find is under $65 and comes in two versatile colors.

THREE

Holiday time means great beauty gift sets and MAC does not disappoint this year.

I love this boxed lipgloss wardrobe. A great gift for your favorite makeup junkie!

FOUR

Full disclosure– I am OBSESSED with these booties! I am partial to the black and the grey,

but every color is fabulous. They are cool, edgy and will complete all your holiday outfits.

FIVE

By now we all know my love for plaid blanket scarfs. I love this color combo plus

they make a great “one size fits all” for any person on your list.

SIX

Buy these now and thank me later! A thick fleece-lined legging with a silky finish will take you

from the office to date night and all your holiday gatherings. No judgement

here if you decide they are your “Thanksgiving pants” — they have super stretch!

SEVEN

How holiday is this sweater? Mushy, cozy, and warm this knit will carry you well

into the colder winter months. I want one in ever color!

EIGHT

Pair this cape with the Marc Fisher booties from above,

those fleece leggings and a silky black top… instant outfit!

NINE

These are sneakers. And they are merlot. And leather. There is nothing more to say!

Go get ’em! And maybe a pair for your most stylish BFF!

Which is your favorite?! What are you buying this month?! Let me know!

What I am loving right now!

It’s been a while, STYLEglossies! I took a week off from blogging for a super exciting reason; my husband and I bought our first house! As you can imagine, things are a little nuts right now. But not to worry, I will be back in full swing once my new office is set up. Be on the look out for photos of our new place along with lots of home decor and design posts!

Today I have six key pieces that will never go out of style– all great additions to your fall closet! Enjoy!

::ONE::

Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bare Beige is my go to color for all seasons and reasons. It looks great by myself but can also be layered on top of your favorite lipstick. It is the perfect everyday gloss. 

::TWO::

Call me old-fashioned, but I still believe in notebooks. I write everything down (or else I would literally forget it ALL). This cute gold foil book is the perfect size to keep in your bag. You never know when inspiration might hit! 

::THREE::

I am seriously in LOVE with personalized jewelry. I already have an engraved disc necklace from S & D but I am itching to add this bar to my collection. I love the idea of adding your child’s name (or children’s initials), your wedding date or the coordinates of a special place. This is truly something that will NEVER become off trend. 

::FOUR::

The quest for a perfect poncho resumes each and every fall. I am always on the look out for one that doesn’t add too much bulk, goes with everything and can be worn multiple ways. This super affordable option (UNDER $40!!) from BP fits the bill. I love that you can wear it open or belt it for a sleeker. 

::FIVE::

There are two kinds of boots in this world. There are the cheapies that you snag on sale at places like Marshall’s and DSW. Those are the trendy, great buys you find when you are never looking for boots. And then there are THESE kind of boots. The kind that have the most AMAZING, buttery leather. The kind that make your heart literally skip a beat when you think about all the outfits you could wear with them. And then when you finally put your foot into a pair of said boots trumpets sing and you hand over your credit card, only to fall flat on the floor when the cashier tells you your total. Yep– these Vince Camuto beauties are NOT cheap, but they are also worth every penny. They are well made, comfy and timeless. Plus, they are just as soft and well made as other brands like Tory Burch (seriously, the leather is nearly the same), but cost half as much. So worth it!! You will wear them all season! 

::SIX::

I love a good canvas tote. They are easy to clean and will hold everything– and I mean everything! A great tote will hold your laptop when you are headed to Starbucks or it will make for an eco-friendly shopping bag when you are at the market. This one by Street Level happens to be stylish and functional- plus it comes in three color combos!  

Hands Free

When it comes to handbags my motto has always been “the bigger the better.”

But here is my gripe with big bags… they are literally bottomless.

Sure, a huge purse allows me to carry a lot more, which is great for when I am working. But for the days when I don’t need my planner, makeup bag and laptop I am happy to lighten my load with a crossbody bag.

The LAST thing I want to be doing is digging through my bag to find my keys, especially during the winter months when it is freezing outside. I am usually that girl standing in front of my door, fishing around my bag for what seems like an eternity before I can find my keys. This also usually happens whenever it is raining, snowing or windy with gusts of up to 50 MPH. Without fail.

That is why I love “hands free” bags. They are not just for traveling and can totally be a part of your everyday style. Here are a few of my picks, which by the way, have all passed my requirements for an acceptable CBB (wide opening, zipper or secure closure, adjustable/comfortable strap and big enough to fit my iPhone 6).

#StellaDotStyle

Each time Stella & Dot introduces a new line of jewelry I basically drool and obsesses over my iPhone as I scroll through Insta looking at ways to style the new collection. Their Fall 2015 line is no exception. Here are my favorite stand-out pieces that I will be adding to my jewelry box this season. You can shop the entire site by clicking here or scroll down to directly shop my picks.

Make a major statement with the stunning Natalie Necklace. I love cobalt blue, especially for fall. Mix it with black for an unexpected, luxe look. This is a piece that will dress up all of your basics– everything from a LBD to a white tee.

There is no cooler look than a set of stacked rings. I have tons of sets but I sometimes shy away from wearing them. Not because I don’t LOVE the look– I just can’t stand the thickness of 4-5 bands stacked up on my (usually) swollen fingers. That is why I am OBSESSED with the Maylee Ring. It gives you the look of stacked bands but without all the bulk.

 I am a big believer in simple, delicate pieces. When you are in a rush to get ready you can easily mix and match no-fuss jewelry for an eclectic look. I also love layering, and I think the Bianca Lariat makes it so easy to tackle that trend. I am planning on picking this necklace up and wearing it with my monogrammed disc.

This Waverly Bag is everything! I love the contrast of the tan suede against the black leather. Plus, you can easily convert it to a larger cross body bag if you need a little extra space. Super chic and great for all seasons.

Another great layering piece! I love how rocker-chic the Legend Pendant is. I can see myself also layering this with the Bianca Lariat from above.

One thing that I love about Stella & Dot is that they donate to women’s cancer research annually. You can give back by purchasing this bracelet, which benefits the Noreen Fraser Foundation. From the S&D website: “From September 10th, 2015 until October 31st, 2015, Stella & Dot will donate 20% of the purchase price of eligible customer purchases of the Resilience Cuff, which constitutes our determination of all net proceeds for this item, to the Noreen Fraser Foundation.”
