Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas Under $50: For Him

Valentine'sGiftIdeas

Valentine’s Day is officially 1 week away! Haven’t found the right gift for your boyfriend or husband yet? No worries! We often know exactly what to get the women in our lives but men can be tricky to shop for. For this reason, I’ve compiled a quick gift guide for you ladies. Below are seven gift ideas for the special man in your life, and they’re all under $50. From top to bottom:

Sugarfina Candy Bento Box $28-  For the guy with a sweet tooth! This is the Vice Collection Candy Bento Box, this pretty little box includes three candies. But these aren’t any boring, old candies: they’re alcohol themed! Flavors include Single Malt Scotch Cordials, Bourbon Bears, and Maple Bourbon Caramels. If these flavors don’t appeal to you, you can also make a custom bento box and select whatever candies you want. You can buy Sugarfina candy at your Sugarfina location, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s or Saks Fifth Avenue.

Lush Massage Bar $7.95- Trying to gift him something romantic this year? Try the Melt My Heart massage bar- it contains cocoa butter, shea butter and dried rose petals! Rub this bar directly onto dry skin for the perfect, romantic massage. This is a gift that will make you both happy! Double win. The scent is unisex and made to be used on men or women. Pick this up at your local Lush store. 

J.Crew Factory Whiskey Stones $12-  Perfect for the type of guy who enjoys a glass of whiskey every now and then. Just stick these little cubes in the freezer and use them in place of ice cubes in your glass of liquor. They have no taste, and they won’t water down your drink! These J.Crew ones have cute little anchors on them, but you can find plain ones at most liquor stores. Get them at your local J.Crew Factory store.

J.Crew Factory Heart Socks $6.50- For the guy that enjoys stand-out socks, how cute are these? Super festive for Valentine’s Day, these printed socks are a cotton/nylon blend and machine washable. They would look great peeking out of dress shoes or inside leather boots. Get them at your local J.Crew Factory store.

YETI Rambler 20 oz. Tumbler $29.99- The perfect gift for any guy on the go. Whether he works outside or in an office, he could probably use a YETI. The 20 oz Tumbler is the perfect size for hot coffee or cold fountain drinks, and it is small enough to easily throw in a backpack or stick in a cupholder. I can vouch for the YETI brand, I’ve personally compared it to other similar brands and my YETI outperforms them all. This thing keeps ice frozen for hours on 100 degree Texas days. I swear by this cup! It now comes in 6 colors as well as the original stainless steel version. You can pick one up at Dick’s Sporting Goods, REI or Academy stores.

J.Crew Leather Card Case $39.50- For the guy who hasn’t replaced his wallet in years! He’ll think of you every time he pulls it out. It fits his basic necessities and won’t feel bulky in his back pocket. This card case is made of soft Italian leather (so it will last for another few years) and comes in brown or olive green. Get one at your J.Crew store.

Jack Black Shave Essentials Set $25-  This set of shaving products is perfect for the man that forgets to treat himself. Jack Black specializes in men’s products that are fragrance-free, colorant-free, AND cruelty-free. This is the kind of fancy shaving cream that he would never think to get for himself but definitely needs. The Shave Essentials Set comes with a facial cleanser, SPF face moisturizer, and shaving cream. Get it at your Nordstrom store.

Hope everyone has a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Five Favorites of January

Screen Shot 2018-02-01 at 11.59.49 AM

The first month of 2018 has finally ended! As y’all may have heard me mention before, this is a BIG year for me and one I’ve been looking forward to for a long time because I’ll be graduating college and finally entering the “adult world.” So with January in my rearview mirror, I’m one step closer to graduation- YES!!

Also, you are probably aware that Lilly Pulitzer’s After Party Sale (more info on that here) was this month. Since Lilly Pulitzer’s website does not have a sale section, and the brand only has two sales a year, this sale can get PRETTY crazy. I definitely stocked up on ALL THE LILLY, but to avoid Lilly overload I picked out only two pieces I purchased in the sale to be featured in this blog post.

I normally spend January trying to prepare for spring by stocking up on colorful pretties to wear when warmer weather arrives. In Austin, temps climb into the 70’s and even the 80’s beginning in February. So, whether you’re up north still battling snow or down south prepping for spring, check out my Five Favorite purchases from the month of January below!

Pink Bodysuit- J.Crew’s Ruffle Front Bodysuit features a wrap top and ruffles along the neckline. When I saw it online in December, I immediately fell in love but was worried about the fit. When I saw it at J.Crew while on a day trip in San Antonio, Texas I tried it on and it was perfect. The color is girly and fun for spring and the ruffles add a romantic touch. It has a deep v-neckline, making it perfect for date nights and weekends. The bodysuit has a concealed snap crotch making it easier to take on and off and is made of nice, thick cotton/elastane. This bodysuit does not feel cheap or thin like other store’s versions- one thing I love about all of J.Crew’s products. I can’t wait to pair it with denim skinnies for cool weather and mini skirts for warmer weather. This bodysuit also comes in navy and black, and I loved it so much I also ordered the black too! This was originally $49.50 and has now been marked down to sale (still in stock in all sizes), so order quick! This bodysuit runs true to size, no need to size down.

Fleece Jacket- Fleece is trending right now. I’ve been seeing fluffy fleece jackets all over my Instagram feed lately. I’m testing this trend out with a sporty, fleece jacket designed from a 1988 best seller. The North Face’s Denali Jacket is made of recycled fleece and features abrasion-reinforced shoulders, chest, and forearms in a contrasting color. It also features Polartec fabric, which means it is insulated and waterproofed to keep me warm and dry. The one I ordered has light grey fleece with a medium grey contrast. I’ll be styling mine with pastels in the spring and dark colors next winter. I think this jacket will be great to throw on with leggings on cold spring days.

Gold Sneakers- These New Balance for J.Crew Sneakers in the color ‘gold salt’ are not something I never imagined myself wearing- but trying new things makes fashion fun! The metallic sneaker trend has been going on for a while now and I’m finally taking a stab at it. I normally only wear sneakers when I am at the gym, but with an upcoming trip to NYC where I plan to do lots of walking, I realized I needed a fashionable pair of walking shoes. These New Balance’s are part of a special collaboration with J.Crew. The metallic gold and cream combination can only be purchased at J.Crew stores or on their website. They fit true to size and are insanely comfortable, providing cushion and support. I’ll be able to walk for blocks in Manhattan in these! I plan to wear them with white skinny jeans and casual tops.

Floral Skirt- This was my very favorite purchase from the After Party Sale. Lilly Pulitzer’s Collette Skort is a style I already know and love, so when I spotted it in the yellow colorway of one of Lilly Pulitzers most famous prints, First Impression, I HAD TO HAVE IT. When Lilly Pulitzer snuck in an older print in a brand new style, never released before online or in stores, it was kind of a big deal. My favorite part of this sale is being able to score some rare pieces to add to my collection. Unfortunately, this skort was only sold during the After Party Sale from January 3rd-4th 2018 and is no longer available for purchase. If you missed out on this skort at the sale, try checking for it being re-sold on eBay.

Blush Dress- This is the second (and last) After Party Sale purchase I’m going to talk about in this blog post. Lilly Pulitzer’s Valli Shift Dress in Paradise Pink is still available to purchase from Amazon (and in stock in all sizes) so if you missed the sale you still have a chance to get it before all those spring social events. My favorite part about this dress is the unique neckline. The metallic detailing across the bust and down the front of this dress is actually white, gold and silver- so you can style this dress with a variety of jewelry and heel options! This shift dress also comes in navy, white and aqua blue (all with the same tri-colored neckline). The fit is true to size, my dress size is almost always a 4 across different brands and the 4 fit perfectly.

Five Favorites of December +1

December Favorites Graphic

December is finally over! Time to take down our Christmas trees and vacuum up all that glitter left over from New Year’s Eve. Between all of the shopping and holiday parties, December always feels like the longest month of the year to me. I’m REALLY excited to say goodbye to 2017 and hello to 2018. This year is going to be a big one for me!

But before we look ahead to all the great things 2018 will bring us, let’s look back at my Five Favorites of December! Plus one extra I snuck in there because I absolutely could not decide between the three different pairs of Tory Burch flats featured in this post. Two of the items in this post were Christmas gifts, the other three were things I picked up myself.

Winter Coat- This gorgeous peacoat from J.Crew was my splurge item this month. J.Crew is based in New York City and known for their cold weather wear, so when I was hunting for the perfect winter coat I knew it had to be from this store! The 2008 Andover Peacot is made of an Italian wool/cashmere blend, making it warm and super soft. I ordered it in the color Dune, which is a light cream color that will pair well with black or brown shoes and bags. This peacoat is actually a re-design of a best selling peacoat J.Crew released in 2008. They made some adjustments to bring it up to date, like the bright gold buttons which I LOVE. This coat also comes in grey, olive green, red and purple.

Almond Toe- These shoes had to be my absolute favorite Christmas present of 2017- they had to make this post! I can’t wait to style these Tory Burch Raleigh Flats with everything this spring. I normally choose round toe ballet flats for myself, but I was happily surprised when my boyfriend gifted me this almond toe flat. The front of these shoes are not quite pointed and not completely round, giving them a bit of a dressier look. These leather flats also have a tiny, half inch heel. My favorite part about these shoes is that the neutral brown leather color will match my favorite Tory Burch bags. I was unable to find these flats in-stock anywhere online, I recommend checking your closest Tory Burch Outlet store for availability.

Navy Ballet Flat- Do you recognize these? They’re the metallic Tory Burch Minnie Travel Flats from my Holiday Gift Guide blog post from a couple weeks ago! In that blog post, I featured these shoes in gold, and just a few days after that post went up I found the navy version for a deal I could not pass up. The Minnie Travel Flats are made of napa leather and the elastic band on the back of the heel plus the split rubber sole makes these shoes super comfortable and flexible. At first, I was worried they would be too glittery but the navy metallic is actually very subtle and adds a nice sheen. The metallic version of the Minnie Travel flats was originally sold in silver, gold, navy and pink but is currently only available in the silver or gold. These flats also come in an array of non-metallic colors.

Block Heel- This is a patent leather pump that looks like a ballet flat with a block heel. I’ve been wanting to try the short, chunky heel trend for a while now and felt like these shoes were a safe bet. I’m now obsessed with the 60’s inspired Gigi Patent Pump from Tory Burch. I love the tiny details on this shoe like the mini Tory Burch logo on the heel and the rectangular frame around the iconic T logo on the toe. The metallic gold color I purchased is now sold out, but it is still in stock in nude and currently on sale on the Tory Burch website. I also spotted this shoe in person at Nordstrom Rack locations.

Perfume Rollerball- This was one of the gifts waiting for me under the tree Christmas morning, thanks,mom! Tory Burch’s Absolu Perfume Rollerball came in gorgeous, metallic gold packaging. The rollerball itself is a 0.20 oz glass bottle with a gold metallic design. I will be keeping this little rollerball in my purse and rolling this scent on throughout the day when I need a little pick me up. The Absolu perfume is described as “fresh tuberose, pink pepper and pure rose — grounded in earthy vetiver and sandalwood”. This scent also comes in two full-size bottle options.

Onyx Lilly- A little black t-shirt dress with a ruffle sleeve? Doesn’t sound like something the colorful brand Lilly Pulitzer would make, but they did! This season Lilly Pulitzer released a few dresses and other items in BLACK, something I never thought the brand would do. I was immediately intrigued and thought “I must add a black Lilly to my collection!” I picked up an older version of the dress pictured above to wear to my family’s Christmas Eve Dinner. The past season dress I wore is Lilly Pulitzer’s Somerset Dress in black. Lilly Pulitzer remade this dress for the 2017 holiday season- the new Ophelia Dress is almost identical to the Somerset with a couple adjustments. The ruffle sleeves are a bit larger and it is made from rayon spandex jersey instead of 100% slub cotton like the original version. It is already sold out in some sizes so hurry and order.

Holiday Gift Guide

Screen Shot 2017-12-16 at 2.50.29 PM

Its the happiest time of the year again! Ok, I’ll be honest- Christmas can actually be a bit stressful. All of the shopping and gift giving can get so frustrating and sometimes you just need some help coming up with ideas. I personally get really grumpy fighting crowds and am always a little relieved when all the gifts have been ripped open and we can go back to normal shopping excursions.

SO, with that said, I created this Holiday Gift Guide with ladies of all ages in mind and included items that are on my wishlist this year as well as items I can recommend that I already own and love. Feel free to use this blog post as a guide for the men in your life that may have no idea what you want (hello boyfriends, husbands, dads and brothers, everything is linked below with prices) or as a starting point for ideas on what to get all of the ladies in your life that deserve some appreciation (mom, sister, cousin, best friend, coworkers etc). I’ve linked every item so y’all can order online but I’m also telling y’all where to buy these in person to guarantee everything is under the tree in time for Christmas. Happy holidays and happy shopping!

Under $50
These gifts under $50 are perfect for your best friends or anyone else you would like to say “happy holidays!” to without breaking the bank.
1. Lilly Pulitzer Ceramic Mug $20
The perfect gift for your favorite co-worker or teacher? A coffee mug! Who doesn’t love a hot cup of coffee in the morning? You deserve to drink it out of a cute, colorful mug like this one. You can even make this an extra fun gift by adding some of your favorite hot chocolate or coffee (I like dark roast Starbucks k-cups). You can pick this up at your local Lilly Pulitzer corporate or signature store.
2. MAC Matte Lipstick $17.50
MAC lipsticks are known for lasting all day and coming in a billion shades. I prefer matte lipsticks and the best selling shade Velvet Teddy is on my wishlist this year! It is a good pinky neutral color that will look pretty on all skin tones. You can purchase MAC lipsticks in person at all MAC stores, Nordstrom and Macy’s.
3. BECCA Cosmetics Pressed Highlighter $38
Another beauty item I love is this highlighter from BECCA Cosmetics. Whether she is a makeup pro or prefers a more toned down look like me this will definitely be used. I wear the shade Prosecco Pop often and it adds just the perfect amount of sparkle and doesn’t end up all over your clothes like other bands. This highlighter can be layered for a more dramatic look or just brushed across the cheekbones for a little something. You can pick this up at ULTA or Sephora locations.
4. J.Crew 3 Sock Gift Set $29.50
One size fits all socks in super cute prints- penguins, metallic polka dots, and plaid?! This is a small present that says “I want you to stay cozy and warm”. These are lightweight, cotton socks that are perfect for every-day wear. My favorite pair has to be the little penguins, they’re so cute and funny. Socks might sound like a boring gift but at least you know she will definitely be able to use these. You can pick this gift set up at your local J.Crew.

Under $100
These gifts under $100 are a little pricier but will definitely be appreciated by any woman. Great thing is- you don’t have to know her size for these!
1. Ciao Vince Camuto Perfume $85
You may have remembered me raving about the Fiori Vince Camuto perfume in my Five Favorites of April +1 post. The Ciao Vince Camuto perfume is very similar (same gorgeous bottle but a brighter shade of pink) and smells like mandarin and strawberries. This scent is amazing. You can order this perfume on the Vince Camuto website or pick it up in person at Macy’s.
2. Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace $80
I can wholeheartedly recommend this necklace because I own it in multiple colors. Y’all know about my love for the Kendra Scott brand, and this is their signature necklace. What woman doesn’t love jewelry on the holidays? The necklace pictured is in black with gold, a classic combination that can be dressed up or down and is neutral enough that everyone will like it. You can pick this up in person at select Nordstrom stores and of course Kendra Scott locations.

Under $250
These gifts under $250 are reserved for our favorite people in life- moms, daughters, girlfriends or wives will love these.
1. Tory Burch Minnie Travel Flats $228
The perfect pair of gold ballet flats! The Minnie travel flats are flexible and made of Napa leather. I love the metallic gold because I feel that it can go with anything and adds that extra touch of sparkle to an outfit. They also come in silver (I would go with the metallic that matches the jewelry she wears, I’m a gold only kinda girl) as well as a variety of solid colors. Pick these up in person at Tory Burch or Nordstrom.
2. Excursion Quilted Vest $120
These down-filled vests are not only cute but they serve a purpose- keeping you warm during winter! I like to layer these over cable knit sweaters for a casual cold day look. The gold details and quilting make these vests a stylish investment. This style of vest is something J.Crew sells year after year in solid colors and prints. Pick this up at your local J.Crew.

Five Favorites of November

Screen Shot 2017-11-21 at 1.04.22 PM

November has passed and I’m ready for holiday parties and Christmas music! I know this blog post normally comes a few days earlier but I’m currently in the middle of finals week. Either way, I wanted to get this blog post out for y’all because it is filled with goodies this month! These items are selling out very fast so hurry and order while your size is still in stock.

Faux Suede Bootie- I was looking for a black bootie with a heel that I could wear with jeans when I stumbled across the Short Fuse Bootie from A’GACI. These booties are surprisingly comfortable and definitely do not look their price- at $26.90 a pair they are a steal. They’re also surprisingly comfortable and the faux suede means that I don’t have to worry about puddles or dirt like I would with real suede!

Bow Sweater- Last year, for their Holiday 2017 collection J.Crew designed this sweater in 100% merino wool and it sold out almost immediately. Seriously, every fashion blogger was wearing this thing. Flash forward to November 2017 and I find the sweater in a cute little consignment boutique in a small town outside of Austin. I was really excited to find this sweater but I’m even happier to tell y’all that J.Crew Factory, the outlet store of J.Crew, redesigned this sweater to be more affordable in a cotton/nylon/wool blend for this year! The redesigned Factory version comes in grey or cream.

Camel Sweater- Y’all heard all about how much I love Ralph Lauren’s cable-knit sweaters in last month’s Five Favorites post. This month, I picked up a v-neck version in a camel color. I will be pairing this dreamy neutral sweater with pretty skirts and under jackets with booties all through the winter. It looks like the camel color is currently out of stock on the Ralph Lauren website, but the navy color is still available. I also recommend checking their store locator for Ralph Lauren outlet store locations near you. My local store always has these cable-knit sweaters available in all colors, even when the website is out of stock!

Ruffle Sleeves- I was eyeing this ruffle sleeve sweater at J.Crew for a while before I was sure I really liked it. This sweater is a statement maker, and now that I own it I really love those big ruffle sleeves! It is just warm enough thanks to being made of 100% merino wool. The sweater comes in four colors, but now that it has been marked down to clearance it is almost completely sold out- check in stores for more availability!

Plaid Skirt- You may remember this darling little J.Crew skirt from a blog post I made in November completely devoted to my love of all mini skirts. After watching it for a while it finally got marked down to the sale section and I snatched it up during Black Friday. It is 100% wool and the print is a dark navy, cream and red plaid which makes it perfect for the holidays. Something about a wool, plaid skirt makes me feel really festive and gets me into the Christmas spirit! I’ll be pairing this one with tucked in sweaters and riding boots.

That’s it for last month’s favorites! Stay tuned for my next blog post, I’m making my list and checking it twice… Happy holidays y’all!

My Mini Skirt Love Affair

Screen Shot 2017-10-26 at 8.56.33 PM

Hey y’all! If you keep up with my Instagram account, then you know it is no secret that I love a good mini skirt. Living in central Texas, I have the opportunity to style skirts year round. Something about a mini skirt just makes me feel like me. Plus, mini skirts are making a huge comeback lately and are being sold in basically every store right now. So for you ladies who either dislike skirts or just haven’t the faintest idea of how to style them, read on. 

For the spring and summer months, my favorite brand for mini skirts is Lilly Pulitzer- theirs are actually skorts (yes for shorts under my skirt!) and come in a HUGE variety of weird and colorful prints. I love all the weird and funny things that they incorporate into their prints such as fishes, octopuses, seaweed, monkeys, flamingos etc. The textured cotton they use is a favorite of mine because it allows the skirts to be machine washable and easy to iron. Cotton is flexible and breathable for hot weather, which is a must here in Texas. On top, I like to tuck in a sleeveless top in a coordinating color or throw on a crop top. Lilly Pulitzer currently offers summer and spring clothing year round, something they refer to as Resort 365. For this reason, I love to hunt online and at resale shops for pieces from their older Fall and Winter collections. Years ago, Lilly Pulitzer sold some great wool and corduroy mini skirts for fall and winter.

When the weather starts to cool down, my go-to brand for mini skirts is J.Crew. No secret that this company specializes in fabulous outfits for the colder part of the year. They never fail to impress me with their variety of plaid, tartan, houndstooth, and gingham. Some of these prints are hard to find at other stores that try to follow all of the trends, so I appreciate that J.Crew is consistent with the classics. For this part of the year, I enjoy fabrics such as wool, denim, and corduroy. For the fall, I pair skirts with thin long sleeved tops and closed toed shoes like ballet flats or loafers. Since Texas has mild winters, I can continue to style mini skirts with boots and a coat (sometimes I don’t even need tights.)  A thick sweater looks great tucked into a skirt and a pair of tall leather boots covers your legs. For really cold days I like American Apparel tights- they’re high quality and hard to rip, plus they come in so many colors.

Love one of the skirts in the graphic above? Here’s a link to every single one of those, starting from the top-

  1. Ruffled Gingham Skirt from Nordstrom $42
  2. Sparkley Tweed Skirt from Forever 21 $17.90

  10. Navy Scalloped Skirt from Lilly Pulitzer $84

Five Favorites of October

Screen Shot 2017-11-02 at 12.13.39 PM

October, which may be my favorite month of the year (pumpkins, Halloween costumes, and scary movies- enough said) is sadly over. This month was also, for some reason, the month of “tried-and-true’s”- everything on October’s Five Favorites list is something I already previously owned, in a different color or pattern. I didn’t even realize this until I finished making the graphic for y’all that these are all items I really love, so much that I own multiples of each. So let’s jump in-

Neutral Cardigans- I didn’t realize how difficult it was to find a classic, simple cardigan until I started shopping for a plain navy and black version. I discovered a plethora of embellished and oversized cardigans but really wanted a tailored and clean look. I already own three of the wool version from J.Crew retail in pretty pastels from last spring. I wanted to branch out and find a different brand to purchase from, but I could not find anything similar at the quality level I was looking for. So I went to the J.Crew Factory store (J.Crew’s outlet store) and purchased the Cotton Caryn Cardigan in black and also in navy. These lightweight cardigans are perfect for layering over sleeveless tops and dresses to transition more summery pieces into fall.

Something Plaid- When I think of fall fabrics and patterns, the first thing that comes to mind is the image of the scarecrow in the plaid shirt. Now honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an actual scarecrow on a farm (or even in someone’s yard) but that image always comes to mind when I think of fall. This plaid shirt dress from J.Crew Factory (the black version was on my September Favorites post) is what I imagine the fashionable Mrs. Scarecrow would wear. Okay, all jokes aside this dress just screams fall to me and I loved the black version so much I had to pick up another one.

Black Leather Bag- Y’all know I love purses, they fill me up with joy and carry all my junk for me. But did y’all know I didn’t own a black handbag until this month? This is the Tory Burch York Tote in the small size. I already own this one in the luggage color, which is a gorgeous deep tan so I knew this was a reliable bag. It is constructed of Saffiano leather, which was created and made famous by Prada. This type of leather is made by cross-hatching a pattern into high-quality leather then covering it with a clear coating to make the leather scratch and water resistant. This is a great everyday bag because it is easy to wipe down after spills and super durable.

Jean Jacket- Last spring, I acquired the white version of this Old Navy denim jacket at a clothing swap at my university. I don’t shop at Old Navy, so I was surprised when that little denim jacket became my favorite layering piece for windy spring days! Flash forward to this October and I’m hunting for a dark wash version. I checked all my favorite stores but couldn’t find anything that fit just right. Checked the Old Navy website and there was my favorite denim jacket in the perfect shade for fall. This looks great over a dress or paired with a skirt and simple long sleeved t-shirt.

Black Sweater- Cold weather always arrives in Austin, Texas the last week of October. Like clockwork, the cold came and I was left rummaging through my closet looking for heavier sweaters. My consensus was that I must shop for more sweaters! This cable-knit sweater from Polo Ralph Lauren was my first pick up of the season. I already own this exact sweater in a couple other colors (this sweater is always on my Christmas list!) so I already knew how amazing this cotton sweater stands up to wash-wear and regular use. After owning one of these sweaters for literally years, it still looks as good as when I got it. A sweater that doesn’t pill or fade easily is super hard to find right now in the days of fast-fashion, so I have no shame about owning this exact sweater in many colors. When something is good its’ good.

That is it for this post- happy shopping!
