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.

Gifts For Ladies:

1 | 2 | 3

4 | 5 | 6

That Sweatshirt Tennis Dress makes me want to take up tennis. Maybe I need it for pickleball games. Wait, this isn’t about me. This is about gifting. That Zippered Tote comes in 12 different colors and is adorable!

Gifts For Men:

1 | 2 | 3

4 | 5 | 6

7 | 8 | 9

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.

Gifts For Kids:

1 | 2 | 3

4 | 5 | 6

7 | 8 | 9

I mean, how cute are those little Velcro Sneakers!! And that Knit Crocodile Beanie Hat! The crocodiles are really so cute on kids.

And my favorite Lacoste gift of all is The Customizable Polo! 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!

Happy Black Friday!! I’ve rounded up the best sales happening and some favorite finds and suggestions from each. I’ll be updating this post as I come across more so be sure to check back. Happy Shopping!

Shopbop’s Buy More Save More Sale is happening and I found this adorable dress there. I’m obsessed with the colorful birdie print!

My block heel lace up sandals are on major sale and come in a lot of colors.


white birdie print dress, similar bag,

red ankle tie sandals (on sale!), red topknot earrings


TRUE BOTANICALS: 20% off the whole website and this only happens once a year! If you haven’t tried True Botanicals yet then now is easily the time. If you’ve tried them then you’re a devotee like me and now is the time to just stock up! Maybe gift to family. Or just gift to yourself. I swear by the Clear Collection.

SHOPBOP: Buy More Save More Sale – up to 25% off your purchase! If you’re looking for the perfect little black dress for a holiday party, look no further because here it is. This black turtleneck top has a really nice swing to it. And these nude pumps are absolutely gorgeous and would go with everything. And this sweater by Free People needs to be in my closet.

REFORMATION: 30% off of everything! I probably have more Reformation dresses than any other dress brand. I LOVE this wrap dress. And how great is this skirt?!

TUCKERNUCK: Take 20% off site wide, and 30% off purchases over $1,000. I pretty much want everything on their site so I could easily shatter that number. Like some white Tretorn sneakers, this pink knitted poncho, and these ballerina flats in all the colors and patterns!

J.CREW: Take 50% off your purchase, so this sherpa fleece hoodie is a no brainer. I love this vintage cotton terry pullover, especially in the pink color. And these fuzzy criss cross slippers would make a great gift!

MARYSIA: HUGE 75% off mark downs. This South Hampden dress is one of my favorite coverups I own! But we all know that the scallop swimsuits are the best.

NORDSTROM: Cyber Sale and up to 50% off! These high waisted leggings are a great price. This down parka coat looks so cozy. And this Tory Burch bag is a great basic!

MADEWELL: Take 30% off of your purchase! If you’re looking for ideas their GIFT GUIDE is REALLY good. I love this camel colored crossbody bag and this leather jacket! Also, these socks, because I just love cozy cute socks!

ANTHROPOLOGIE: 30% off the whole site! This paloma knit tunic is exactly what you didn’t know you’ve been looking for. And how cute is this ruffled sleeve dress?

AMAZON: The Ring Video Doorbell is one of their best sellers and it’s marked down 52%! Take $100 off of Bose Noise Cancelling bluetooth headphones. I have these and wear them every day. They’re the best. There are lots of toys on sale, like these Hatchimals. And this cute navy trench coat is on sale, too!
