Our Holiday Cards with Minted

You have no idea how excited I am to share this post. I’m the worst at preparing things like holiday cards, so the fact that we took photos and already have holiday cards is one of my biggest accomplishments this year, lol. I excel at many things in life, but sending out holiday cards is NOT one of them. Now, let’s just hope I send these out on time, ha! We used Minted last year and I’m excited to team up with them to create our cards this year. We’ve also had the pleasure of working with Minted in the past to create our gallery wall in our master bedroom, which turned out amazing. Other than their beautiful website that’s easy to navigate, I love that everything on the website is designed by an independent artist.

5 Holiday Looks from Banana Republic

Holiday Outfit Ideas

Majestic Filatures turtleneck xs (old, new version), Banana Republic petite 0 (should have gone with a petite 00), Staurt Weitzman boots 5, Isabel Marant belt small, J.Crew earrings

I’ve been getting lots of requests for holiday looks and I’m so excited to have this post ready for you. This post is not sponsored, I just found a handful of cute holiday pieces at Banana Republic and ordered them to show you some options. I know BR has great Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, so I wanted to post these before those sale started that way you can take full advantage. Something to note, if you’re petite and you find a holiday piece you like, snag it fast. Small sizes tend to sell out fast.

4 Go-To Fall Basics + My Favorite Everlane Purchase to Date

Everlane Stole

Every season there’s those pieces that you reach for consistently. For me in the fall they’re typically anything and everything in the color black (black jeans, black leggings, black booties, etc.). But, Everlane is putting that to the test. They honestly have the best basics (I know because I own so many of them) and lately, I can’t leave the house without wearing at least one Everlane piece. Today, I’m sharing details on 4 go-to fall basics you’ll love and reach for all season.

The Best Gifts for Toddlers

2019 Gift Guide for Toddlers

I asked you on Stories what the best cold weather pieces you can’t live without for toddlers were and I received a ton of great feedback. This is our first fall/winter with a busy toddler, so I want to be fully equipped to play outside and run around in the cold and rain. All your feedback items make for great gifts, so I figured I’d do a 2-in-1 post and share my favorite holiday gifts for toddlers, which include your cold-weather favorites. As a mom of an almost 2 year old, I can say, the best gifts to receive are the ones you ACTUALLY USE and NEED. And since the kids are still young, you can get away with gifting necessities rather than toys. My other rule of thumb with gift giving, buy things that people wouldn’t normally spend money on. For example, Ugg boots tend to be a splurge for parents, but you know their kids will wear them and get a ton of use out of them (if they live in cold weather climate). Same goes for something like a The North Face or Patagonia jacket. They’re absolute essentials as we head into winter, but not everyone will splurge on one. In my opinion, these make the best gifts!

15 Ways to Wear Black Flat OTK Boots

Banana Republic blazer petite xxs (old, similar), Everlane t-neck sweater xxs, AGOLDE jeans 23 (old, similar), Marc Fisher boots 5, Staud bag, Quay sunglasses

These Marc Fisher OTK boots are my number one seller this month, so I thought I’d create a dedicated post around them. I’ve had these for about 3 years now and I get a ton of wear out of them every year. I’ve talked about it a couple times on the blog, but in case you missed it, I don’t really wear knee high boots. It’s really hard to find  ones that work on my petite frame (shaft is either too high or too wide), so I stick to OTK boots. I have 3 pairs of Stuart Weitzman OTK boots, which if we’re talking quality, those take the cake. But, these Marc Fisher OTK boots are awesome for the price. They run TTS and are really comfortable. The color, fit, and pointed toe really elongate your legs, which for someone with short legs, is a BIG deal, lol. I wear these like I would any black tall boot – casually and dressed up. If you’re intimated by OTK boots, this post is a great read. You can really wear these with anything. Below, I’m sharing 15 ways I’ve styled them.

Sephora Beauty Insider Sale

Sephora Beauty Insider Sale

I’ve been getting a few requests to share more beauty content, so I thought I’d share my favorites from the big Sephora Insider Event Sale. Rouge members get 20% off, VIB members get 15% off, and Insider members get 10% off your purchase. The sale ends November 11th. I’ve been slowly transitioning to clean makeup and while the initial transition was a little jarring, I’ve been using about 10-12 products consistently and can say, I’m liking the change. I’m detailing a few products I’ve been using that are part of the sale below and also talking about a few I’m excited to try.

The Loungewear Set You Need This Season

Outdoor Voices Cloudknit lounge set

The season of loungewear is here and I could not be more obsessed with loungewear sets right now. I think I’ve bought 4 or 5 sets in the last 2 months. We spend a lot of time at home in the fall/winter, so it’s nice to be comfortable, but also still look pulled together. I love that sets can be worn together, but work equally as well separately (because we all know how I feel about versatility). Speaking of a good set, I’m so excited to introduce you to the new Cloudknit collection from Outdoor Voices. Think lightweight, breathable, and stretchy material that you’ll want to lounge around in all day.

Your Guide to Buying Levi’s Jeans

Your guide to shopping Levi's Jeans

I had my eye on several pairs of Levi’s jeans and then I started to see more I liked. They all had different fits and I wasn’t sure which styles I liked and which styles would fit me best. I have 2 other pairs of Levi’s jeans and I bought them based on 1. The look and 2. Seeing them on another person. I couldn’t even tell you what style they were. This got me thinking… “I should order a handful of different styles and do a review of sort and share my findings with my readers.” And just like that, this post was born. I shared a sneak peak on Stories and recieved many DM’s saying you’re really pumped for this post as well. It looks like I’m not the only one confused by the 100 different washes and fits of Levi’s jeans, lol. Read on for my fit review of 4 styles of Levi’s jeans.
