Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and belated Thanksgivukkah (and everything else I am forgetting) to all!
I hope everyone enjoys their day off spent with family and friends in pajamas and fuzzy socks.

I am officially obsessed with bracelet stacks, especially those of the rose gold variety! They add the perfect amount of sparkle to an everyday outfit.

'Tis the Season

{St. Johns Bay coat (similar) and sweater (love this one!), DKNY jeans, Coach bag, Levity wedges (similar), Target gloves}

Earlier this week my boyfriend and I took a little trip to St. Augustine to check out their Night of Lights downtown. It was magnificent and the perfect thing to put us in the holiday spirit! We even got blessed with cold weather- a Christmas miracle in these parts! (Also, I don't wear jeans very often, but the two pairs I own and love are DKNY petites. They are perfect for shorties like me and keep their shape for years!)

Holiday Bows

{NY Collection sweater (old, but you can shop them at Macy's), Forever 21 skirt, Sofft wedges (patent leather version), Coach bag}

Without veering into tacky sweater territory, holiday dressing can sometimes be a little tricky.  I think the best way to get it right is to add a pop of a festive color, like this green Coach bag (a Cyber Monday steal at $130!). A dash of red or green or sparkle really brings your look into December!

What are you wearing this season?

Black & Blue

{Lily White dress (very old, but you can shop them at Nordstrom), Liz Claiborne bag (this season's version), M by Marinelli heels (on sale!)}

If I told you the last time I wore this dress was when I was 13 at my best friend's bat mitzvah, would you believe me? Yeah I can't believe I'm that much of a hoarder either. But I'm glad I rediscovered this gem! It's really fun wearing old (or in this case, really old) pieces in clever, unexpected ways and teaming them with new accessories, like these booties that I scored for over 50% off at DSW! And they are so, so comfy.

Cheers to that!

Links: The Best Gift Guides

{Kate Spade New York bracelet, a Hanukkah present from Sean 
and Liz Claiborne watch, a gift from my parents from last year.}

Time is ticking as we approach Christmas (and finish Hanukkah tonight!). I can't believe the holidays are already here. Luckily, there is much help available in order to find that perfect present.
Gift guides seem so prevalent this year. I guess with so many pretty goodies to choose from, it's hard not to share! So I thought I'd round up my favorite guides of the season.

In true GG fashion, their collaboration with Kate Spade is chocked full of shiny goodness! Perfect for the girly-girl stationary lover in your life.

Julia has rounded up the best pink accessories on the market. This is probably the gift guide where you'll pick up a little present for yourself!

And finally for the men in your life, pick up a few of Liz's picks.  I personally am eyeing that buttery leather briefcase and lumberjack scarf.

Let me know what you're lusting over!

Cyber [Cynic] Monday

{Kate Spade New York bag snagged for 70% off this past Friday}

I don't know about you, but I am absolutely exhausted from Black Friday, this past weekend, and today's Cyber Monday. Leandra has expressed my sentiments exactly. I woke up to 160(!) emails this morning all from retailers. I. Am. Tired.  (Not to mention the dent all of this perusing online has put in my studying for finals schedule.) The only sale I have given into today is the Coach Factory sale.  I am now three (unnecessary/totally impulsive/oh so cheap/shameless) purses richer. I am lucky to have a mother with a love of luxury handbags as insatiable as my own. 

Merry [crazy shopping season] to all!
