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!
Happy Monday to you! Today is a special post as this is my first holiday tour of the season! I’m joining six other amazing bloggers to bring you a French Christmas Tour, hosted by my friend Lory of Designthusiasm. Many of the bloggers I’m joining today are people I was reading before I even started a blog. They are immensely talented, with gorgeous photography and styling, so be sure to scroll to the bottom and visit all of their posts!
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.
Happy November! Today I’m sharing a warm and cozy Thanksgiving table using the rich colors of fall. And I’m joining some blogging friends who are also sharing their tables as well. This is my second Thanksgiving table this year and I wanted it to be quite different from my first! In fact, I love doing tablescapes and over the years have created quite a few! If you love setting tables, make sure you check out my free e-book with twelve of my favorites (one for each month of the year!)
For today’s Friday Favorites post I thought I would talk fashion. I haven’t done a fashion post in many weeks and I miss them! I love decorating and design inspiration, but when fall rolls around, I definitely fall into that “back to school” spirit and get in the mood to shop. Not a whole overhaul, just a little closet refresh. And one thing I love to buy, especially in the fall, is coats. I’m a coat lover (as I’ve shared before!) Seriously, I definitely should be living somewhere other than Southern California! However, an absolute classic coat that I didn’t have until last year is a classic trench coat. And it’s ironic since of all the coats that might be most appropriate for California winters, it would be the trench!
Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be sharing my fall home tour with you today! For this year’s Warm and Cozy Fall Home Tour, I’m joining 15 bloggers to bring you some wonderful fall decorating inspiration. If you are coming here from Edith & Evelyn Vintage, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. Cindy has such a beautiful home – I’m always in awe of her talent and her elegant French style.
