Our Louisiana winter can be a little unpredictable – last year it was 80 degrees on Christmas! But this year, we’ve had a pretty consistent cool front making it actually feel like December! However, it’s still nothing close to say… Philadelphia and New York, where we will be heading for actual Christmas this year! Luckily, Nordstrom has a selection of winter clothing options that work for Louisiana winter and our snowy Christmas plans! I’m already planning what to pack like my Ugg boots and cozy thermal socks. Keep reading to see my full winter to-do list!
Joy is a word you only hear mostly during the holidays, but isn’t it something we should be enjoying all year round? Rockport reached out and asked me to share what JOY means to me – which really got me thinking about the things that bring me joy on a normal basis. Sharing this sparkly holiday outfit in today’s post + a few tips on how to find joy everyday – and even where you least expect it this holiday season!
It’s that time of year when we all need to give ourselves a little gratitude audit – because we should be thankful beyond just Thanksgiving, right? Koolaburra by Ugg inspired me to share what the spirit of the season means to me. SO, I started by jotting down easy ways to practice gratitude every day and am including them in today’s post!
And if you’re in the mood for a little more Early Black Friday sales, Koolaburra is offering 25% off starting today! Use code KOOLASAVINGS. I have the Koola Tall that I’m wearing in today’s photos and am obsessed with them! There are also cozy slippers that would be perfect gift ideas!
(True story, new slippers are one of my guilty pleasures!)
If you had to name the best gifts you’ve ever received, what would they be? When I sit down and think about my favorite gifts ever, it comes down to ones that have a story. For example, a set of bracelets from Lee Michaels Fine JewelryI received on my wedding day comes to mind. (It’s not everyday that you are given diamonds, right?!) Three of my family members picked out single bracelets that makes up a gorgeous trio of gold and rose gold bangles that I wore on my wedding day. Not only are they sentimental, they are pieces I can use and wear all of the time. With gift guides and holiday looks in mind, I wanted to share a few more fine jewelry gift ideas from Lee Michaels in today’s post!
While I was in New York last week, I had the opportunity to pop into the Henri Bendel flagship store on 5th Avenue. YOU GUYS. I can’t believe that I’ve never been inside this store before. It was legit like walking into a grown-up toy store but with handbags and accessories. I wanted to pick up and play with literally everything that they had on display! There were treats like personalized holiday cookies and the most delish rice krispies decorated with handbag icing. And there were tables and tables of sparkly jewels and bags that inspired today’s holiday date night outfit ideas. See which two bags I love for creating unique and unexpected holiday looks in today’s full post!
