Archive for December, 2019

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend – our’s was nice! We celebrated Josh’s birthday, had a family Christmas with Josh’s side, and caught the Christmas parade last night. The weekend flew by and yesterday was so busy that I sort of feel like I didn’t get much of a break, but I guess that’s just December for you. Must push forward. Today’s post is dedicated to gift ideas for the ladies on your list (or for your own wishlist)! I have my eye on a few of these items, like that amazing faux fiddle leaf fig tree and the raffia wrapped earrings!

12 Gifts For Her:

Fiddle Leaf Fig – It’s faux but you wouldn’t know! (See what I did there?) This is on my wish list! It comes in two sizes and won’t die!!

Travel Cosmetic Bag – A fresh cosmetic bag is always fun isn’t it? This one is so cute.

Birthstone Ring – A splurge but these birthstone rings are so special and stack beautifully.

Leopard Card Case – I rarely ever even use my large wallet anymore, these card cases are just easier for me because I regularly switch out my bags depending on my outfit.

Gingham Napkin Set – My friend Meredith just launched the most adorable linens collection called Butter Radish! A new set of napkins makes for a great gift, or for yourself for your holiday table!

Polka Dot Pajamas – LOVE the green piping on these pj’s! These are the cutest.

Gem Earring Set – I love a good earring set, all three pairs are so fun and I couldn’t pick a favorite anyway!

Cozy Plaid Blanket – Not inventing the wheel here, but there is good reason why a beautiful throw makes for a great gift!

Yeti Coffee Mug – These mugs are ALWAYS a good idea. They make great stocking stuffers as well.

Raffia Gumdrop Earring – I mean these are really cute don’t you think?! ON my personal wish list!

Floral Duffle Bag – For the girly girl. The most beautiful duffle bag!

Fur Lined Mules – Okay these leopard faux fur lined mules must feel like Heaven. So cute with jeans and a sweater!

This reversible travel wrap makes a great gift, too! It’s super soft and comes in a lot of different color combinations. I’m wearing it with this cream mock neck sweater, these pintuck cream pants, and these pink velvet loafers. Hope your week is off to a great start!

We just made the CUTEST update in Lilly’s room! I partnered with DucDuc (our favorite furniture line for kids) on a new dresser for Lilly’s clothes that were beginning to bust out of her teeny closet. Putting away her clean clothes is SO much more enjoyable now.

And it doesn’t hurt that this Austin 6 Drawer Credenza is absolutely gorgeous! The fun thing about DucDuc is that all of their furniture it customizable! You can pick your colors, your trim finish, your drawer color, hardware… The possibilities are practically endless. We chose a classic look and went with white with natural oak finish.

And we did a fun orange drawer interior for some color and to coordinate with Lilly’s DucDuc Cabana Desk! Photo below is from a couple of years ago, Lilly has grown!

We chose white ring pull hardware to coordinate as well. I love the look!

I love how it turned out, and so does Lilly! I highly recommend checking out DucDuc’s whole collection. They have the perfect mix of fun yet beautiful pieces, and each piece is hand crafted and made to order in Connecticut! Big thanks to DucDuc for this beautiful new piece!

Today’s post feels extra special to me because it’s all about nostalgia. Do you remember the first brand that you collected that you were excited about? Mine was Vera Bradley. My friends and I collected the many different patterns and colors of Vera Bradley duffel bags, totes, and cosmetic bags. When one friend would get the new pattern, we all needed it. And trust me, we knew about all of the new bags because we lived just a couple of hours south of the Vera Bradley headquarters in Indiana. We were in the know. Their soft and feminine designs were fun for everyday use, sleepovers, and road trips. I could cram SO much into my duffel bag. And bonus, mom could just throw the bag in the washing machine when it needed a refresh!

Well, for Lilly’s birthday this year I gave her her very first Vera Bradley piece. It felt really special to tell her how I started collecting my pieces as a young girl. Of course, she loved it. It’s hard not to appreciate Vera Bradley’s whimsical patterns and bright, bold colors. Lilly is now the proud owner of the Lighten Up Journey Backpack in the Indiana Blossoms print (because obviously). And it’s the Dashing Deal of the Day today on Vera Bradley’s site, so you can buy them for $100 each (reg. $175) with the code LIGHTENUPLOVE!

This Lighten Up Journey Backpack has the most storage of any backpack I’ve seen. From a designated spot for special papers to a ventilated pouch to stash shoes and worn clothes, it’s the perfect kid and adult friendly backpack for school, work, or travel. It has a padded laptop compartment, a hard case top pocket for sunglasses, and a trolley sleeve that accommodates luggage handles. It has even more storage tricks you can read about here.

For as roomy and durable as this Lighten Up Journey Backpack is, it’s actually surprisingly light weight! It’s also water-resistant.

Vera Bradley is an awesome source for gifts this holiday season! Here are a few more great gift ideas from their site!

I have a feeling the Hanging Travel Organizer and the Travel Duffel will be next on Lilly’s wish list. Check out the Lighten Up Journey Backpack today while it’s the Dashing Deal of the day and make some progress on your holiday shopping!

I have been SO excited to share today’s post! There is something for everyone here, and thanks to Lacoste’s big Winter Sale happening right now you can knock out some holiday shopping with 30% – 50% off select styles (some exclusions apply) plus free shipping and returns on all orders from 12/3 to 12/25!!

Lacoste is just that classic, fun brand that everyone knows and loves. I’ve been gifting Lacoste pieces to my older brother for years. It’s always well received. And not only is Lacoste’s collection well-made and well thought out, but giving back to the community is high on their list of priorities. They’re just a cool and kind company, which is why 2 Lacoste products are sold every second of every day.

I’ve put together 3 Gift Guides today: One for women, one for men, and one for kids. Let me warn you though, these gift ideas may result in a real “one for me, one for you” trend.

The Men’s Polo is the perfect gift for any guy. It comes in 40 colors but I love that pink shade the most. The Half Zip Cotton Sweatshirt makes the perfect gift, too! I love the stand-up collar.

You can select your crocodile from over 40 options (even team and flag patterns), choose your personal polo fit and color, and get up to 4 initials embroidered! Head over here to shop Lacoste’s Big Winter Sale with free shipping and returns! Happy holiday shopping and have a great day, Everyone!
