November! You’ve arrived!

My dismay over the sky darkening at the ungodly hour of 5pm these days is far surpassed by the joy I feel knowing Christmas is eight. Fridays. away. Can you believe it? In order to get you inspired and prepared for all of the festivities ahead, I’m bringing a new series to the blog called “‘Tis the Season.” We’ll be covering gift guides, outfit inspiration, and lots more! I can’t wait to take on this holiday season together.

I decided for our inaugural ‘Tis the Season post, we’d start with a staple of Christmas cheer – the tacky sweater party. I’ve already got those darling tinsel ballet flats added to my cart. Is it bad if I plan on wearing them in real life too?

While it may feel like we’re jumping the gun on Christmas cheer (is there even such a thing?) getting the ball rolling early on ensure for a stress-free season later on! And that’s worth it’s weight in gold, in my book. So let me know what type of guides you’d like to see this month! Whether it be for that tricky relative you have no idea how to shop for or winter beauty products to get you glam for holiday parties, I’m here to help!

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

    I hear ya girl! We put up or office Christmas tree yesterday and were jamming out to music the whole time. Such cute options! It’s so hard to find that balance between truly tacky and cute. Great choices!

    I would love love love to see an under $20-$50 gift guide! It seems like there’s so many people (hostesses, more casual friends, etc.) that I want to shop for but it’s hard to do cute and affordable for all the special people during this season.

    Love, love those flats!

    Please post ideas for a Yankee Swap gift exchange. My family does one every year as part of our annual cookie swap (combination ugly sweater contest) holiday party. This year the limit is set for $20.00. Looking for unique gift ideas outside of the typical candle, chocolate or wine inspired gifts.
