Classic Pieces For Winter

Thomas and I took my dad to Waveny Park; a gorgeous estate that’s open to the public year round. A former oil magnate donated his incredible former home along with 300 acres of land to the town of New Canaan years ago, and now people from all over the world get to enjoy it! The property is really something – I just wish we had gone sooner so we could have seen it with all of the vibrant fall leaves! If you’re in the area, it’s definitely worth checking out :) Classic Wrap CoatIt was a windy and chilly day, so I bundled up in my new grey wrap coat! This coat is so high quality, comes in tons of different colors (eyeing the taupe color!) and it just went on major sale. My sister has owned it for yearssss in black, and I’m so glad that I finally got it in the grey this season. It runs true to size, is really warm, and lays beautifully open or closed. If you’re going to buy 1 coat this season, honestly this should be it. Faux Leather PantsIf you’re looking for a faux leather jean/pant (basically something more structured than a legging) these will be perfect for you. They run true to size, and definitely give a bit after you wear them for a few hours. They’re snug at first, but hug every curve just right so I wouldn’t go up a size. I love the subtle buttons and pocket detail – and they’re under $70! I have to say, leather pants and leggings are my absolute favorite thing to wear in the winter because they make any outfit look cooler and more sophisticated. Cashmere Knit SweaterThis is such a soft cashmere knit sweater. It’s from Bloomingdale’s Aqua line which I own a ton of pieces from. The line is full of classic staple items that are well made and reasonable. This fringe sweater is really fun from them as well, and I love this faux fur vest which I own in black. You would NEVER know it was fur because it feels sooooo luxurious! Gift IdeasIf you’re looking for a few more gift ideas for the holidays… I LOVE these Dior sunnies (splurge, but they’re on sale!), the faux fur vest I mentioned above, this sherpa teddy coat, this leather moto jacket, this pretty v-neck sweater, the Charlotte Tilbury highlighter I swear by, and Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Discovery Kit.

Casual Holiday Outfit Ideas

This year we decided to decorate for Christmas way earlier than usual! My dad is in town for the next 2 weeks and I’m so excited to show him around our new area. Thomas and I picked up wreaths at a little garden shop called Town & Country in Wilton. They have a great selection of greenery if you’re nearby! I went a bit overboard and got wreaths for every window outside of the house! I’ve been seeing other people do that in our neighborhood and it just adds so much warmth to the home. Faux Leather LeggingsTo pick up our Christmas greenery, I wore these faux leather leggings. They’ve got a good amount of stretch, but don’t slip down when you sit or walk (which is KEY!) They’re from Nordstrom’s BP line and are under $50. I recommend getting your normal size. They have just the right amount of shine (not too much, not too little where they are matte!) Can you tell I’m picky about my faux leather leggings?! Cozy Thermal HenleyI threw on this cute thermal henley with the leggings. It’s a top I know I’ll be wearing all year long. I love the more cropped/boxy fit. It’s sporty and casual. It would also look really cute over a silky slip dress in the spring with white sneakers! I like to wear it with sweatpants around the house too. Winter BootsThese boots are from a few seasons ago, but I really love these, and you can’t go wrong with these. If you’ve been looking for a tan suede bootie these ones are so classic. More Cute + Casual Pieces For WinterNordstrom carries soooo many incredible brands in house which you can find under their Nordstrom Made section. I wear this nightgown every night. It always sells out, so I buy 2-3 at a time!!! These sweatpants are DIVINE and I live in them pretty much all week long. This fringe cream cardigan is so chic and I can see myself wearing it all shades of ivory/white. Not clothing, but this cheese board is kind of perfect isn’t it?!

Best Gifts For Him

I’ve learned a LOT about what type of gifts men like – and don’t like – over the years. It’s funny, they don’t really love getting clothes (unless it’s something classic like a coat), but they do LOVE things like candles and fancy body wash – seriously! You can never go wrong with a bottle of booze, or any sort of cocktail accessory, and any tech item will for sure be a hit. There are a bunch of experiential things men love too, like a pedicure, massage, or a round of golf. Below are Thomas approved gifts for every man in your life! Gift Guide For Him Under $25 Casamigos cocktail mix $19Manicure set $22Kombucha kit $25 (my brother in law would love this!)Position of the day book $13 (LOL!)
