Do you watch the Oscars? I must confess I’m a die-hard fan. I’ve been watching it every year as long as I can remember. The whole show is something I look forward to every year, but I especially love what my husband calls the “pre-game show,” otherwise known as the Red Carpet!
A fashion post! Finally! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve written one, and to be honest, I’ve missed them! Between some blogging obligations to brands and the craziness of all the fall and Christmas decor posts and hops, it was difficult to fit them in. But today I wanted to talk about a wardrobe staple that I absolutely love: the plaid blazer! I’m a blazer lover in general (as anyone who knows you will tell you!) and the classic plaid or checked blazer is one that I turn to again and again.
Well, it’s only a little over two weeks until Christmas (how did that happen?!) and I know this is when the stress levels can really go up. Between ordering cards, hosting events with family and friends, having to bake or bring food to parties, and decorating our own houses, sometimes gift-giving can feel like a chore. However, I’m here to say it doesn’t have to be! I know there are people who don’t relish the job of hunting for gifts, but I actually love it. And filling the stockings is one of my favorite things to do! My husband and I still fill each other’s stockings and I bet we will even when the kids are gone!
As promised, today I’m sharing Part Two of my Holiday Gift Guide! Hopefully you read Part One which I posted last Friday. As I mentioned in that post, my holiday gift guide is so extensive I decided to split it into two parts. Friday, I released the Men, Women, and Teens sections and today, I’m concentrating on personality types. So whether you have a fashionista sister, homebody mother, or a foodie friend, I’ve got the right gift for you!
It’s that time of year again; the gift-giving season is officially upon us! And let’s face it, a lot of us struggle when it comes to getting the right gift for all the people on our holiday gift list. Whether it’s the hard-to-buy-for boss, finding the perfect hostess gift, or even buying for our own families, it can be a challenge. So to help alleviate that problem, this year I’ve compiled a comprehensive holiday gift guide for everyone on your list – by category!
When I think of “style” I think of classics; a great pair of jeans, that perfect trench coat, or the wear-with-everything black blazer. I never think of trends or things that are hot for just a season. I think of wardrobe items that are always in style, that always look good, and that make you feel chic the minute you put them on. One of those items is a classic leather jacket. It’s an investment, for sure, but it is so worth it! If you pick a quality leather jacket, it should last you several years or more. And with all the options we have nowadays, you don’t need to spend a fortune. You can get a high quality leather jacket, in a classic style that will last, for a reasonable price.
