What I’m Loving Right Now

Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 3.02.18 PM

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!  

Fall Drugstore Makeup Picks!

Yep. Dropping that F bomb again today.
