    The Statement Sleeve Trend Fashion Girls Love

    I don’t know about you, but I can hardly scroll through my Instagram feed without running across a blouse or sweater with the most insane sleeves! We already adore the statement necklace, statement earrings, statement bag – now it’s time to show our arms a little love. The statement sleeve trend is a real thing, and it’s happening now! It’s actually perfect timing with winter upon us, and as you know, the bigger the knits the better. This Chicwish ruffle sleeve sweater is not only super cute, it’s also super warm! Those ruffles pack some major layers you guys. But I’m mainly loving how fabulous those unexpected ruffles can make any ol’ winter outfit more exciting!

    Paired first with my high-waisted black skinny jeans and Lowland over the knee boots, it would also be adorable paired with a festive skirt. Think of all the holiday party outfits that you can wear this sweater with! It’s also available in gray and black, and how about this ruffle sleeve dress version? PS. How perfect is this gold Rebecca Minkoff crossbody (available in rose gold here) for holiday outfits?!

    Chicwish currently has a large selection of affordable sweaters that feature statement sleeves and/or ruffle detailing. I’m sharing a few of my other favorites on their site in my “shop the post” widget below. Plus, you can use code XMAS20 for 20% off for a limited time!

    One of my favorite holiday traditions is being part of Secret Santa gift exchanges!

To help you get gifting, I’m sharing 5 Secret Santa buying tips that I always follow in today’s post. Plus, I’m opening up my own Secret Santa packages containing goodies from New York and Company!

    New York and Company was so excited to spread the holiday spirit, that they hosted a Secret Santa exchange with a group of their favorite bloggers. We were all given a person to shop for, and we used each other’s blogs and social media accounts for clues on what to gift one another. Click through to see what my Secret Santa picked out for me and how I’m wearing the pieces she chose!

    DIY Shopping Bag Wall Art w/ Framebridge

    A week ago, there was a little sneak peek into my cloffice (closet + office) progress over on Instagram – see it here. And although there won’t be a full room reveal until the space is 100% finished, I wanted to share one of the projects that I’m working on with Framebridge! We are creating shopping bag wall art using some of my favorite designer dust cloths and shopping bags. I mean, what could be more perfect for a girl’s closet, right?

    The first step for my wall was gathering the shopping bags, and then, I narrowed it down to the ones that are the best size and color scheme. Here’s a peek at which ones are the right size for my wall and complement each other when grouped.

    Framebridge offers the option to send in your own items, so you can curate your own gallery wall without the headache of finding the right frames! Best of all? Frame, printing, mat, and shipping are ALL under $159 (the price for an extra large frame). Have something to frame for your house? OR maybe you have something that would make a special gift idea?

    The Framebridge send-in deadline for Christmas is next December 4th!

    On the search for that perfect holiday dress? I’m sharing two classic and glamorous holiday party outfit ideas in today’s post with what else – lace and sequins! You really can’t go wrong with either one, and both can be just as fun to wear. With the Parker Nadia LBD in today’s post, lace gets an update with peek-a-boo mesh and flirty ruffles. Sparkle a little more your thing? Try this fun sequin pencil skirt from T + J Designs with an oversized knit sweater!

    The best part about both of these outfit ideas? You can keep the details to a minimum with classic ankle strap heels and single statement bracelet. Top it off with a bold red lip, and try sleek waves for an effortless holiday party look!
