Great Sales To Update Your Wardrobe for 2018

Hi! Hope you all had a great Christmas, New Year’s and any other holiday/occasion that occurred during the past few weeks! As you may have noticed, I took a little break from the blog to re-set, spend some time with family and prep for the new year. So excited to be back! I was going to start my first post of 2018 with a feature of a new, fave accessory brand, but since there are some great sales going on right now, I’m sneaking this one in… These sales will end soon. Check them out and get that wardrobe update you wished for during the holidays, right now!

Last spring I received this bag courtesy of Coach. In love with its classic as well as practical style and design, it is a timeless bag that is made to last. Right now, Coach is having an up to 50% off Winter Sale and this bag style is included! Continue Reading →

Stylish Holiday Gifts for Her: Affordable to Luxe

Stylish Holiday Gifts for Her Hi! So every year I tell myself that I’ll get most of my holiday gift shopping done by mid-December… To be honest, I haven’t made much progress, but that’s because there are so many great products to choose from and I had to explore all of my options! I went through all (ok, most) of my fave places to shop online and put together my fave picks of Holiday Gifts For Her. These faves are focused on a ‘stylish Her‘, because aren’t we all deserving a little style in our lives? 😉  Oh, and I also included a range of price points to work with many budgets.

Crossbody Bag for Parisian Chic + OOTD

Chanel crossbody bag for an effortless, Parisian chic look

I’m all about effortless style but it’s not just how you look, it’s also how you feel. Lately my fave bag to carry is a small crossbody bag. Aside from the fact that they’re really cute (they are!), but they’re also so convenient! Large enough to carry essentials (phone, ID, money, make-up), a small size crossbody is lightweight and gives you the freedom to move handsfree without fussing with a bag. Love that!

Earlier this fall I was in Paris for fashion week (check out some of my posts here, here, and here). Walking around the neighborhood of my hotel in St. Germain des Prés, I couldn’t help but notice, as usual, how chic the women looked. I know this can sound cliché but at least from what I’ve experienced, Parisian chic is real! This time though, they all seemed to have one accessory in common… a crossbody bag. Of course, I mostly saw the small classic Céline box bag (I was in Paris after all…), but that may be because I have ‘eyes’ for that bag. Regardless, it was the overall look that caught my attention. A minimal/sophisticated outfit was topped with a moto jacket or blazer (it was a little cold) and a small crossbody. The style looked confident, understated and easy…in other words, effortless.

Standing with legs crossed wearing Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots in black for Cyber Monday Sales

Happy [Cyber] Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. If you didn’t get a chance to take advantage of those Black Friday Deals, there are still a lot of sales going on right now as well as new Cyber Monday Sales. (See my list below.) So take a break with me and update your wardrobe or get those holiday gifts! I also have a list of my fave places to shop year-round in the sidebar (on the right). Don’t forget to check out those sites!

Before I get to the sale list though, I just wanted to share these over-the-knee boots that are currently one of my faves. By Stuart Weitzman, they are comfortable, stay up, and are leg lengthening! Bought these right before the fall season and have been loving them ever since. There is a similar pair at Neiman Marcus available now. If you buy them today, Neiman Marcus is having a promotion for Cyber Monday with code GC4YOU. You will receive a NM gift card for $125. Yay! Continue Reading →
