Bordeaux + Gingham

Jacket: Chicwish c/o | Shirt: J.Crew {love this, too} | Pants: Paige | Boots: DUO c/o {love these} | Bag: ZAC Zac Posen c/o | Necklace: Baublebar c/o | Sunglasses: Ray Ban c/o | Lips: YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture' #31

I know, I know, this gingham shirt...again.  I honestly can't get enough of it!  It goes with everything and I love pairing black + white with fall colors, like bordeaux.  I actually just bought the same top in navy + red, as seen in Wednesdays post, so you can expect to see a lot more of that one too!  Such a great staple piece for fall layering.

I hope you all have a fun weekend!  The hubs has been out of town all week for work, but comes home tonight, so I can't wait for that.  I'm thinking a little dvr + ordering in thai food will be our friday date night plans and I can't think of anything I'd rather do.  Cheers to the weekend, lovelies!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Plaid + Gingham

 Top: J.Crew | Jeans: 7FAM | Scarf: J.Crew | Boots: Tory Burch {on sale!} | Clutch: Clare Viver | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Earrings: J.Crew {similar} | Ring: Brandy Pham c/o | Lips: Stila 'Beso'

One of my favorite things about cool weather is plaid.  That may sound silly, but seeing fall-colored plaids and ginghams make me so excited for the holidays.  If you saw this photo on instagram over the weekend, you probably noticed my love for plaid...even cozy socks.  When I saw this top + blanket scarf in J.Crew, I knew they would be great fall staples, alone or together.  I love mixing prints (maybe a little too much, hence throwing in the leopard), but especially with plaid + gingham.  I styled this outfit for a causal Sunday around town, but it would also be so cute with a skirt + tights.  I'll be styling it a few different ways in the next couple of months, I'm sure!

It has been SO cold here in Greenville the last few days.  Last night it got down to 18 degrees!!  Trust me, there's nothing that I love more than chilly, holiday weather, but it is literally freezing!  Luckily blanket scarves are totally in style, but completely functional right now, too!  Tonight's definitely going to be a crockpot soup + hot chocolate for dessert kind of night!

Gift Guide: The Entertainer

Entertaining

Glasses | Candle | Lamp | Gold Tray | Gold Rimmed Chargers | Thank You Notes | Ornaments | Coasters | Flatware | Gold Pillow | Gold Pouf | Plaid Mug | Cable Knit Throw

Entertaining during the holiday season is one of my absolute favorite things to do! The chill in the air, surrounded by friends and family, listening to Christmas music, gathered around the table laughing and enjoying amazing food- it doesn't get much better than that.  However, being a great hostess and preparing for the get-together can be just as much fun!  When we decorate our home for Christmas, I try to use that time to de-clutter and organize,  Sometimes we get complacent in what's lying around the house and when you take a step back, it's nice to switch up the decor a bit!  I'm currently in the process of switching out a few necessities in our house and the holidays are the perfect time of year to do so.  Even if you're not usually the entertainer, this gift guide is perfect for hostess gifts or gift giving to the girl who is all about chic, home decor.  You can't go wrong with Kate Spade ornaments or gold confetti champagne glasses!

Cozy Cardi

 
 Cardi: Chicwish c/o | Jeans: Paige Denim c/o | Sweater: J.Crew | Boots: DUO Boots c/o | Handbag: ZAC Zac Posen c/o | Necklace: Elizabeth Stone c/o | Sunglasses: Prada {on sale!} | Ring: Elizabeth Stone c/o | Lips: NARS 'Supervixen' 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  This was a look I wore for a little date night to one of our favorite restaurants on Friday night and let me just say, this cardi was a lifesaver.  It was SO cold here over the weekend so I was constantly pulling my warmest, coziest pieces out of the closet to bundle up in.  I've always loved the look of a long, knitted cardigan so when I saw this one, I knew it would be the perfect addition to my fall/winter wardrobe.  I've really gravitated towards an all black look lately.  I'm not sure if it's just because it's been so cold or simply because I love the chic, blank slate to style against, but it's definitely my go-to right now.  And, you'll probably see this little red cup in all of my photos from here on out.  When it's this cold outside, it's so helpful to keep my hands warm!  Plus, the caramel brulee latte is out for the holidays so that's a major bonus.

Shop the post below to get my look + a few of my other favorite black basics for this season!

#GOLDEN

Top: J.Crew {obsessed} | Jeans: old, {similar + here} | Shoes: Nordstrom c/o | Bag: Philip Lim for Target {hoping to get the legit version from Santa} | Watch: MK | Lips: Stila 'Beso'

The moment I laid my eyes on this Golden Tee, I knew I had to have it.  I was actually looking for a cute baseball tee when I came across this one, so it was completely meant to be.  Some days, I absolutely love throwing on a pair of high heels and dressing up, but lately, I've been gravitating towards comfy tees and sweaters.  There's definitely a time and a place for everything, but a chic, yet causal outfit is definitely my go-to as of late.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!  The weather is supposed to get really cool here in Greenville the next couple of days, so I'm looking forward to big coats and late night hot chocolate by the fire!
