:: Holiday 2016: A Gift Guide for the Homebody ::

This gift guide for the homebody is everything that lazy weekends indoors are made of. With dropping temperatures and snowy days ahead, I know both myself and a few of my favorite girls would love to find a few of these comfy pieces in a stocking or under the Christmas tree. Not to mention most of these gifts are under $50! This beauty sleep eye mask is adorable, as is this cable knit one. Last year, my boyfriend gave me a robe for Valentine’s day and it was so cozy, I couldn’t figure out how I’ve ever lived without one. This faux fur one makes me feel as if I never put on pants again, and this one with “Not a Morning Person’ printed on the back speaks to me. I bought this candle last year from Target, and purchased this one last night. It smells SO good. It’s like I have freshly baked sugar cookies coming out of the oven all the time. I was seriously feeling the gold accents on this teapot and coffee maker, and if you like movie nights snuggled on the couch this popcorn making set for under $60 and pom trimmed throw are the definition of Netflix and chill. I found myself wanting to buy so many of these items as I was putting them together for you, that I added a few to my wish list as well! As always thanks for reading and have a fabulous week!

:: Curating the Wardrobe: Olive Items to Add to Your Closet ::

:: Curating the Wardrobe: Olive Items to Add to Your Closet ::

Hey all,

Is it me or is autumn, by far, the most stylish season? Between the iconic prints, re-imagining of timeless trends, and color palettes, I can never get enough. (Ever notice how the best hues are also foods? Cognac, cranberry, mustard, olive? I mean, c’mon. Coincidence? I think not.) I always find myself more inclined to window shop during the fall – although I’m unsure if it has more to do with how much I love the outdoors this time of year or the buying power I feel with the resurgence of a regular paycheck. To prevent myself from overindulging my inner consumer, my goal this season is be more intentional in how I curate my wardrobe. In looking to fill gaps in my closet, I noticed a scant amount of olive colored pieces, despite it being one of my favorite fall colors. After hours (and I do mean hours) of browsing, I thought I’d share my finds with you. Whether you’re also on the hunt or if you’re just looking to take advantage of the waning Labor Day sales, here are some piece ‘olive’ us should add to our wardrobe.
