My last gift guide of the Christmas season is here!

All of these gifts would make the lady in your life very happy, and the best part... they are all under $50!

J.Crew Blazer















Blazer: J.Crew // Top: Loft (old, similar) // Jeans: J.Crew // Heels: Jessica Simpson 
Bag: Tory Burch // Bracelets: Lily & Laura

Happy Monday! 

I've been so excited to share these photos with ya'll! 
This J.Crew blazer has become a closet staple of mine. I love how it can be worn so many different ways.  For these photos I dressed things down, but most recently I worn the blazer with black work pants and black heels at the office.

Right now is the BEST time to get clothes, shoes and accessories on sale. J.Crew is currently having a 40% off everything sale and the Loft is having a 50% off everything! I always sneak in a couple staples pieces this time of year as a little Christmas Gift to myself. How could I resist?!

Have a great week, ladies! I'm going to be putting up a couple more gift guides this week, so stay tuned!

Lots of love from Boston

Stocking Stuffer Ideas


Philosophy Hands of Hope // Baublerella Bling Brush // Essie Nail Polish // Bobbi Brown Palette
Beauty Blender Makeup Sponge // DryBar Four Pack // Invisibobble Hair Ties // DryBar Hair Clips
Marley Lilly Monogrammed Gloves // Lilly Pulitzer iPhone Case // Lauren James Keychain 
Dawlens WineToGo // Mark & Graham Luggage Tag // Mark & Graham Pill Box // J.Crew Socks
Sephora Makeup Brushes // Sephora Face Masks // Marley Lilly Acrylic Necklace

Ah, the stocking stuffer! One of my very favorite gift guides!
Opening up my stocking has always been one of my absolute favorite parts of Christmas morning and all the credit goes to my sweet Mama! She has always been SO good at picking out those perfect little stocking stuffers that you open and say "wow, I've always wanted this" or "I've been meaning to get one of these!"

What makes opening a stocking so fun is that it ranges from those cute little toiletry items, to candy, to gift cards, to bigger items that you didn't expect to be in there! In our house we usually get one special item at the very bottom of our stocking each year! One year I got a monogrammed necklace similar to the one shown above and I can honestly say that I have worn it just about every day since and truly love it!

What are you hoping is in your stocking? Coming up on Thursday is some fun Red & Green inspired gifts to get you in the holiday spirit!

Loft Cowl Neck Sweater














Sweater: Loft // Jeans: Zara // Crossbody: Rebecca Minkoff // Shoes: Cole Haan

Happy Monday (insert sad face here)
This sweater has been on repeat for the past few weeks. I absolutely love the color, the weight, the quality, the length... you name it, I love it! 

Remember last week in this post featuring my new fav skirt and scarf from the Loft when I said to be on the lookout for another 40% off sale before Christmas?... well, it's here! Head on over to the Loft to see so many of my recent favorites marked down to incredible prices! This sweater was originally $69 and now is only $41!

I hope ya'll have a great week! I can't wait for you to see Wednesday's post with J.Crew! You're gonna love it!

Cashmere and White Denim












Sweater: Marshall's (similar) // Denim: Paige // Shoes: Jessica Simpson // Bag: Tory Burch

I wouldn't exactly categorize myself as a rule breaker, but when it comes to wearing white pants after Labor Day, I guess I am! These Paige Denim pants have been a staple in my closet for so long! They wear so well, never "bag out" and honestly can be used in every season. Unfortunately my cashmere sweater is from Marshall's, so it is not online, but there are tons of similar options at both Nordstrom and Bloomingdales! In my opinion cashmere is always a great investment. I would recommend  checking out the big department stores or even J.Crew during this time of year (when things go on super sale). Now is the time to find a cashmere sweater that you love and will wear all winter!

Have a happy Wednesday! We're halfway there!
