How pretty are these gold + diamond star earrings?! Okkkk I think I need these fur fingerless gloves!!! Beauty Gifts For Her Upgrade your blow dryer game with this compact, travel friendly T3 dryer. Everyone could always use a new set of brushes – and the professionals rave about Sigma brushes. A jade roller with a fancy face oil is the perfect gift for the skincare lover. Charlotte Tilbury makes the most aesthetically pleasing beauty palettes and I am swooning over this eyeshadow palette. Her lipsticks are also incredible and best sellers for a reason!

A Plaid Pantsuit

A pantsuit is polished, sophisticated and chic. It’s also a flattering style that looks good on any body type. You can bring it to life with a lace cami, a fabulous pump, a turtleneck, or even a red coat like this one. I had a holiday party to head to and didn’t feel like wearing a skirt or dress – so these plaid pieces were perfect. The pop of red brought the look from corporate to festive in under 2 seconds. If you don’t already own a red coat, I love this one, this one and this one. I’ve styled red coats SO many different ways over the years – a few examples are here, here, and here. It’s especially fun to bring it out in December and throw it over a simple all black outfit or classic neutrals. If you’re hesitant to try a pantsuit or feel it’s too formal, then just go with a great plaid trouser. I love a wide leg or tapered plaid trouser – this one is really fun and has sort of a 70s vibe, and this one is affordable and can be worn countless ways. I’m almost done with all of my holiday shopping which is such a relief! If you still need a few last minute gift ideas be sure to check all of my gift guides here! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Winter Whites

I love a winter white outfit – especially for holiday parties. It’s fresh, feminine and a welcome change from the sea of black and sparkles everyone is wearing! I basically haven’t taken off this beautiful white Ann Taylor coat since I got it a few weeks ago. I’m so impressed with the quality – it’s kept me nice and warm despite the chilly temps! FYI I found that it ran true to size. I’m wearing a small here which was perfect with a thick sweater underneath. If you’re on the shorter side, and want to wear only a light blouse or cami with it – you would definitely be ok sizing down! *It sadly just sold out, but I LOVE this light grey wrap coat which has a similar look/feel. The Perfect White TrousersI paired this gorgeous winter white coat (this is also a great coat!) with these tailored white trousers that fit like a glove. I found that they ran pretty true to size, BUT if you’re in between sizes, I’d size down. I’m wear a size 2 here and normally wear a 2 or 4. These perfect white trousers are SUCH a versatile piece that every woman needs in her closet – no, seriously. They’ll be perfect in the spring with a silk cami, T-shirt, or light button down. This holiday season, I’ll be pairing them with camel sweaters like this one, chunky knits, and elegant tops like this one. Holiday Outfit and Work Attire IdeasIf you’re looking for holiday outfit inspiration, or even cute work attire, pair these trousers with this sweater and these pretty pumps. Add a pop of leopard to mix things up or an elegant pearl hoop earring (so unique right?) I also LOVE the idea of adding a subtle accessory like this classic printed silk scarf around your neck or tied to a simple black leather bag. I would even get super creative and have this scarf framed for my office or living room! So chic. Festive Accessories and GiftsAnn Taylor has such great accessories which would make great gifts for yourself or your loved ones! In addition to the printed scarf I mentioned above (need!), I highly recommend getting this cashmere beanie, these cashmere gloves, this lucite clutch, these pearl drop earrings and these suede heeled booties. Shop my entire look below along with all of my fun holiday outfit and gift picks!

This gift guide is for the beauty lovers in your life and of course you! ;) It’s a roundup of my absolute favorite makeup items that I re-order time and time again from Nordstrom. These are my beauty cabinet staples, and will make perfect gifts for your loved ones. Most of them are under $100, and several are under $50 making them great stocking stuffers. PS if you love my robe you can get it here! Beauty gifts from Nordstrom: Fragrance My favorite perfume of all time is Diptyque “Eau Duelle.” It’s got a rich vanilla bourbon smell, and I get compliments on it from men and women everytime I wear it. For room spray, I love Diptyque “Baies.” I keep this in my bathroom, as well as our guest bathroom. For diffusers, I can’t get enough of the Antica Farmacista Vanilla, Bourbon and Mandarin reed diffuser. It’s not overpowering and makes your entire home smell divine. Candles My favorite candle is by Diptyque – it’s the Vanille scent. I talk about it nonstop for a reason – it’s pure heaven. If you’re over Diptyque, then I suggest Byredo’s Bohemia scented candle. It’s the chicest candle next to Diptyque and smells really subtle and sexy. Body I am constantly re-ordering this Aesop hand + lotion duo. It smells SO good and everyone comments how much they love it when they come over. It’s earthy, and nourishing. I recently bought the Necessaire body wash and lotion and let me tell you – it lives up to the hype. It left my skin SO soft, smells incredible, and is also a CLEAN beauty product. Win, win, win. Face I’m obsessed with the Tata Harper resurfacing serum. You notice an immediate glow right after using it. Plus it’s all natural. I also love the resurfacing mask. I got the gift set for my sister! For the woman who has everything…get the Sisley face mask. Google it and you will see the thousands of positive reviews. It instantly works, and leaves your skin feeling SO soft and supple. I’ve been using it for years. This Indie Lee face oil is also a clean product and a great stocking stuffer. It’s only $14 and super gentle. For the girl who is prone to breakouts and always traveling, get her this gem from Sunday Riley. I bring it on every trip and it immediately clears up a zit within minutes. I’ve been using the Dermalogica Microfoliant 2x a week for 8 years. It’s gentle, effective and makes your skin stay bright + clear. This little gift set is perfect for the skincare junkie!
