Macy's Holiday Favorites


Today I'm excited to be partnering with ShopStyle to bring you my own personal Holiday Gift Guide from Macy's! I've selected my favorite fall & winter finds (all under $100), including a mix of shoes, bags, accessories & apparel.  I focused on rich textures like leather, bouclĂ© & velvet...plus a healthy dose of sparkle.  Here are just a few of my current picks from their site - you can check out all my selections on the Macy's Holiday Spotlight Page.

I will be publishing a separate post soon featuring all of the Black Friday Deals that have been released thus far - so if you're like me & planning on shopping the sales, be sure to check back for all the store opening times, coupon codes & details!  I'll be taking Thursday & Friday off from the blog to enjoy this holiday with my family - I hope you all have a wonderful & memorable Thanksgiving!

Cabled & Quilted



I was recently re-introduced to Abercrombie & Fitch, where I had not shopped in a while...but after browsing their store, I was pleasantly surprised to discover the coziest sweaters, great-fitting pants & chic outerwear.  I honestly had a hard time not buying everything I tried on!  But I ultimately decided on easy basics that I can pair with other items I already own.  This cable-knit sweater is unbelievably soft & the ideal length for wearing with faux leather leggings or skinny jeans.  And my search for the perfect military green cargo pants ended when I found these - they have just the right amount of stretch & I just love the quilting detail at the knee. 

Abercrombie & Fitch will be having a huge Black Friday sale with amazing deals starting at 8pm on Thanksgiving Day in stores & online.  I've got my eye on this fair-isle sweaterthis plaid jacket & this wool blazer.  Don't forget to follow along with my Black Friday adventures on Twitter & Instagram - I will be live tweeting from the stores & sharing all the best deals with you, starting at midnight!





What I'm wearing:
c/o Abercrombie & Fitch Celeste Sweater, c/o Abercrombie & Fitch Military Pants (on sale!), Ann Taylor Cashmere Slouchy Hat, H&M Scarf, Joan & David booties, Michael Kors watch, Bracelets: H&M and Vintage, Zara ring, Lips: L'Oreal Infallible Target Red, Nails: Sally Hansen Red Zin

Back to Black



I'd be flat-out lying if I said that I enjoy the winter months.  In truth, nothing makes me grumpier than freezing temperatures and a chilling wind that cuts to the bone.  (Slightly ironic that I live in one of the coldest places on the east coast.)  So, on those days when I am feeling down about yet another gray-skied day, it's only natural to want to wear all black & cozy up in an oversized knit.  I love the shape & length of this one...and even better, it has pockets so I don't have to wear gloves!  




What I'm wearing:
c/o Wallis Cowlneck Sweater (on sale!), c/o Wallis Waxed Jeans (on sale; also in petite here), Forever 21 Boots, Mossimo bag (similar here or here), c/o Stella & Dot earrings, Lips: L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Target Red

Top It Off



I never wore a single hat on my head in the cold weather months until moving to New York (except when my mom would force us to bundle up like eskimos before going out to play in the snow as kids).  I always thought of them as an unnecessary fashion accessory that gave you flat hair & made your head itch.  But after my first winter here, I quickly realized that they are an essential piece to surviving the arctic temperatures.  Thankfully, there are so many stylish beanies that not only do their job of head-warming, but also perfectly finish off a fall outfit.  This new fuzzy one is the ideal color for pairing with other neutrals and I think it might just be the toastiest hat I own (read: you'll be seeing it a lot this season)!






What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 SweaterSanctuary Clothing Vegan Leather Vest, Old Navy Poplin-Stretch Shirt, Thrifted skirt (similar here or here), c/o JustFab Vita Booties (also in black), DKNY bag (similar here or here), Zara Angora Beanie, Rings: Forever 21 & Vintage (similar here and here), Bracelets: Forever 21, Vintage & Madewell (on sale!), Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Crush, Nails: Essie Carry On

Cardigan Convert



In the past, I've shared about the lack of cardigans in my closet (here) and how until I discovered this longer-length boyfriend style, I was always confused by how to style this type of sweater without looking dowdy.  But I'm loving them more & more lately because they're so cozy, in addition to being the ideal layering item for our current weather.  If you're lucky enough to live somewhere with a mild winter, you can even get away with wearing one in lieu of a coat.  For this month's Old Navy post, I decided to share 2 different looks wearing my new favorite cardigans...proving that they are the perfect piece for the season!




What I'm wearing:
c/o Old Navy Textured Cardigan (35% off w/ code MERRY), Forever 21 sweater (similar), Paige Denim coated jeans (similar), Lauren Ralph Lauren booties (via Marshall's; similar here or here), Zara tote (similar), Rings: Forever 21 (similar) & Zara (similar), Forever 21 Earrings, Bracelets: Vintage & Forever 21 (similar here and here), Lips: Cover Girl Blast Flipstick Smooch

Steals Under $30


Because I've been wearing mostly charcoal gray, black & burgundy so far this season, lately I'm finding myself craving a change in the opposite color direction.  Thankfully, the old fashion rules (no white after labor day) no longer apply and these soft icy shades look just as appropriate in the winter as they do in the warmth of spring.  In fact, they may even help lighten your mood on those dark & dreary days!

Pop of Red



Though it's evident by looking through my blog that I love a bold lipcolor, I know it can be intimidating if you're not used to wearing a bright shade every day.  But with the holidays just around the corner, there is no better time to try out this look.  This Maybelline Color Elixir is my new favorite because it combines the best of all worlds - with the color payoff of a lipstick, the conditioning treatment of a balm & the shine of a gloss.  You can build the color to your liking according to your comfort level - try a thin layer for a more sheer stain or apply it generously for a bold pout.  





What I'm wearing:
The Limited jacket (similar hereherehere or here), Express sweater (similar herehere or here)
ELLE skirt (similar herehere or here), c/o ASOS Booties, c/o JustFab Laurent Bag, 
c/o Outrage Fashion Earrings, Bracelets: Forever 21, Vintage & Forever 21 (similar),
