HOLIDAY GUIDE // For the Hostess

MONOGRAMMED BOTTLE STOPPER

If your family is anything like mine, you’ll have lots of holiday and Christmas gatherings to go to. I never like to show up empty handed, after the hostess has worked so hard to put together a yummy spread and create a spotless house. If you want to bring just a little something that will quickly get put to use, I love this monogrammed bottle stopper, these salt and peppers shakers, or Sweet Almond Jo Malone Candle. C.Wonder has a great selection of holiday hostess gifts, like these chevron rocks glasses, festive appetizer plates, and monogrammed cheese boards. Every hostess needs a festive apron when she’s putting the finishing touches on her spread! And you can’t forget the tea kettle or french press to go along with all those delectable desserts. See more of my favorites below!

When I spotted this French Connection coat a month or so ago while shopping in their flagship store, I almost died. The color combination is perfect and it has quickly become one of my favorite coats ever. Really, photos don’t do it justice! It’s a wool blend too, so it’s nice and warm. Just throw on a scarf and go! I also have been wearing my Stuart Weitzman boots a ton and cannot say enough about them. I got this color a year or so ago and am thinking of getting the black one too. They are so comfortable and perfect for the long winter months ahead. You’ve probably been seeing them on a handful of blogs here and there – they are 100% worth the investment!

HOLIDAY GUIDE // Beauty

HG - BEAUTY

MAKEUP BRUSHES // LIPGLOSSES // TRAVEL CASE // GIFT SET
ESSIE POLISH // PERFUME // DIOR NAIL POLISH // STRIPED MAKEUP CASE
MIRROR TRAY // CLARISONIC // EYE PALETTE

Beauty products are some of my favorite gifts to give and get during the holidays. Something about them is just luxurious and makes you feel so good about yourself! I already have some of the products above that are my tried and true favorites, like the Chloe perfume and Clarisonic. I use my Clarisonic every single day; it’s one of the best investments I ever made for my skin! New makeup brushes are a perfect gift for any beauty junkie. Lorac makes a phenomenal eye shadow palette and this gift set of glosses has some of the prettiest shades! I have several Stephanie Johnson makeup and travel cases. This one comes with me every time I go away, even just for a night and makes for a great gift. I suggest even stuffing it with the products in this Bare Minerals gift set. Jo Malone makes some of the dreamiest scents and this ‘Christmas Cracker’ set of assorted scents is no exception. I love the beautiful packaging too – wrapping job already done! Henri Bendel has tons of sizes in this striped case, perfect for brushes and glosses. I love giving trays as gifts – I use them to display my perfumes on my bathroom counter and favorite jewelry pieces on my dresser. This limited edition Dior polish bottle would also be so pretty to display!

I love this look because it is so simple and classic. I have been searching for the perfect chelsea boot style boots and finally found it last week in this Carolinna Espinosa pair. The boots have a bit of shine in the luxe Italian leather, making them so chic and easy for dressing up when you need to be in something a little flatter for the upcoming winter months. I also love that Carolinna incorporates a bit of memory foam into the construction of her shoes – hello, comfort! This pair also come in a true brown color that’s perfect for casual weekend looks. You can scoop up any pair for your self at 20% off using code STYLECUSP20 from now til the end of the year!

Happy Monday! This week is busy both on and off the blog – make sure you stay up to date with all my Holiday Guide updates, more coming this week!

This time of year has some of the best sales – it seems like everything is on sale right when you need it to be, like sweaters, coats, scarves, and boots. The Nordstrom Clearance Sale ended this week, but they still have tons of great pieces on sale. I absolutely love this wool + cashmere blend tunic that’s a steal for $69 – it comes in tons of colors too! I have been coveting red coats for the past few weeks and this one is under $200. This Trouve drape neck sweater is marked down to $40 – better grab a few colors in that one too! J.Crew is offering 25% off & 30% off to cardholders – I am loving this boucle jacket, cozy scarf, and festive plaid shirt. Last Call Neiman Marcus has been a go to of mine lately. I scored this vest last week and am debating on scooping up this draped one. They also have a great selection of designer watches and boots. French Connection, LOFT, and Ann Taylor are all having Friends & Family Sales this weekend. You can view my French Connection picks here in a full post. LOFT has some great new arrivals, like this funnel neck coat and lacy jumpsuit (perfect for the holidays). Ann Taylor just got this icy blue coat in (swoon) and this striped knit sweater that I would pair with a red coat.

Happy Weekend!
