Festive Flair

IMG_5430IMG_5473IMG_5421IMG_5441IMG_5423IMG_5481

Hey everyone, happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving Weekend!  In case you missed it, I launched the first set of my gift guides on Saturday, and also wrote about the perfect holiday gift I found for B here!

Today, since the holiday season is in full swing, I wanted to incorporate small amounts of festive flair without feeling overwhelmed by it (since I can hardly believe November is almost over!)  The bright green of the sweater and the bow detail on the back make it perfect for a slow embrace of the Christmas spirit!

Being the main event of Thanksgiving week, family dinner always causes the most outfit stress.  Luckily, I found this amazing Banana Republic skirt almost three months ago during BTS and I knew it would be absolutely perfect for Thanksgiving with my family.  Tights and heels are some of my favorite wardrobe staples, so any excuse to break them out is a good day in my book!

I love incorporating more than one fall hue into an outfit, and this skirt is the perfect neutralizer for the navy and burgundy shades.  I have been holding off on actually wearing it until Thanksgiving, but I can’t wait to see what else I can style it with once the holiday is over.

I always dedicate the month of November to Christmas shopping.  I always enjoy taking the time to find everyone on my list a thoughtful gift that I know they will love, instead of scrambling for something last minute.  Shopping early also helps me stay within my budget and shop around for the best price.  Once the Christmas shopping is done, I have the proper time and focus to appreciate the Christmas season without feeling like I lose all of my weekends to shopping at the mall with the masses.

Of course, no matter how hard you try to find a unique and personal gift, there will always be those people on your list who are just impossible to shop for.  For these people, we have the GAP family.  What I love most about GAP brands (Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Piperlime, and Athleta), is you can shop at all of the brands using one shopping cart.  I love that you can hop back and forth between them so easily and only have to check out once!  Even better: they constantly have online deals running AND if you spend over $50 combined (or buy one item from Piperlime!) you get free shipping!  These awesome perks make it easy to shop for everyone you know in virtually one place, using one shopping cart!   Above are my top ten picks for those guys who are hard to shop for, there really is something for everyone.
