Can you believe that the holidays are upon us?! Thanksgiving is truly right around the corner and Christmas is just under 6 weeks away. I love this time of year...the holiday busyness gets me even more excited and when we are out and about seeing the holiday decor everywhere it just puts me in the spirit!
If you are feeling like me, then you are probably motivated to get your holiday shopping done! I always make my list and then start checking it twice! Santa would be proud. ;-)
And if you are REALLY anything like me, when shopping, you often times create your own holiday wish list to share with others AND you usually buy a thing, two, or three for yourself along the way. I know, I know...it's the time to buy for others but I just can't help myself because the deals are just too good to pass up!
Today I'm partnering with New York & Company to share my top picks for holiday! The pieces that I am sharing are not just great gifts for those amazing women in your lives but they are also great gifts for yourself. Yes, I said that...gifts for yourself!
One of the first things that I picked out was this Queen Bee coffee mug! Peter often time calls me the "Queen B" so I thought this mug was a perfect little gift for myself. I also love this as a gift any and all "Queen Bee's" that you may know in your life. It has a soft pink background and gorgeous foil lettering. This is sure to make sipping coffee even more fashionable!
Secondly, I picked out a couple of pair of earrings that just screamed "HOLIDAY"! They are so cheerful, sparkly, and gorgeous. The multi-color gold druzy earrings are a great addition to the outfit I am wearing and the colorful statement earrings just remind me of how bright and cheerful Christmas is. I know so many women who love fashionable accessories, as I am sure you do, and New York & Company has so many wonderful gifting options!
I also picked out this gorgeous gold clutch bag as an addition to the look I am wearing. This little bag is not only a stand out but it is totally practical for carrying less. Sometimes, less IS more! Think holiday parties and New Year's Eve! I personally think this bag makes a great addition to any lady's bag collection and because of its gold color, it will go with so much. It is sure to elevate any holiday look!
Every year I end up buying myself a new pair of gloves and I could not resist these fun sleek black gloves with a poof accent! How great are these?! These are so stylish yet perfect for every day wear. There is nothing boring about these beauties and they are sure to keep your hands warm while keeping your look put together and polished!
And how about this gorgeous outfit?! This look is so holiday and perfect for wearing to any party that you have plans to attend! The embellished button down shirt fits like a dream and the shoulder detail is my absolute fav! And this gold mesh skirt is funky, fun, and sophisticated all wrapped into one pretty package. I love pairing a classic top such as a button down with a skirt that is a bit more edgy! Wear a pair of great heels (I'm thinking red...even more festive) to elevate your look even more! Wear the multi-colored gold druzy earrings and the gold bag for a finished, holiday party ready, look!
Last but certainly not least...this leopard print fur jacket! It stops me in my tracks, that is how gorgeous it is! Leopard jackets/coats are trending right now and this one is beyond perfect to wear throughout the holiday season. Again, this jacket looks beautiful paired with your holiday looks but it is also a great option to style with jeans too! This may just have to be a gift for yourself...I couldn't resist!
So tell me, who are you shopping for this holiday season and which item from today's gift guide is your favorite?!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
