Gifts For Him


I’ve scoured the web and come up with several ideas he is sure to love. 

Up his bar cart game with these classic copper mugs

Improve his golf swing with pointers from Ben Hogan’s 5 Golf Lessons book

I bought my boyfriend a briefcase last year, and he always says it’s the best present I’ve ever given him. He brings it to work every day so it’s a practical purchase but it’s also very handsome! This year, my boyfriend was peeking over my shoulder as I was creating this gift guide and he told me wants a vest and slippers, so that made my job very easy! 

Make sure he’s Christmas morning ready in these plaid pajamas. Get yourself a matching pair too. 

For the man who travels a lot for work, this Hey Handsome travel kit is a must. It’ll put an extra spring in his step in the mornings. 

This gingham dress shirt is a no-brainer. Every guy looks good in a dress shirt, and he doesn’t need to iron this one. He’ll love it even more. 

If you’re dating someone with a fondness for facial hair, help him maintain it with this no-shave kit

If your beau has a major travel bug, he’ll love documenting his adventures in this travel journal

It’s a rule that every man on the planet idolizes Clint Eastwood, right? It’s part of their DNA or something. I’m for sure getting this book and a stack of Clint Eastwood movies for my brother. 

Get him ready for holiday party-season in these chic monogram glasses. When in doubt, monogram it right?

If you’re still looking for more gifts for the men in your life, check out the gift guides at J.Crew, Nordstrom and East Dane. They’re all amazing!

The Coziest Sweater Dress












Accessories: Anthropologie beanie, Street Level tote (under $50!), Stuart Weitzman boots (less expensive version here)

Jewelry: Anne Sisteron love ring (similar)

This is the coziest sweater dress ever! Period. I’ve worn it 3 times this week. Can you say winter staple?? This sweater dress also comes in a festive red, so maybe I need both colors? FYI- It runs big. I’m wearing an extra small.

Isn’t this metallic stripe beanie cute? I’ve linked a few more fun beanies from Anthropologie below guaranteed to keep you warm and toasty : )

I’m going to LA tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving with my family. I’m SO excited for us all to be together. We’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner at our house, so wish us luck!

Fringe Embellishment







Outfit: Anthropologie top, Joie jacket (similar), 7 For All Mankind leggings (similar)

Jewelry: J.Crew bracelet (similar)

Fringe was all the rage this fall and it’s even better this holiday season! Grab your girl squad- It’s party time in this gold fringe top! This top seriously gives me heart-eye emojis. It’s so fun and festive and it’s under $100. I paired it with my favorite leather jacket and comfy velvet leggings. Yes, you read that right- velvet leggings are pretty much the best invention ever.
