I’m especially anxious for this weekend because my sister is coming to visit from NY! We’ve always been incredibly close, and even though we’re only able to see each other several times a year, we talk on a daily basis. I can’t wait to spend the entire Thanksgiving week with her! So spoiled!

We have a lot of Thanksgiving to-do’s planned starting this weekend, including baking, dinner parties, shopping, and other preparations for the holiday. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.

Fringe Cardigan

Anthropologie Cardigan / Leather tote (similar and similar) / Dolce Vita booties / Vince Camuto bracelet / Forever 21 necklace (similar)

I was in awe of all of the fringe I spotted on the runway this fall. I especially love when a piece incorporates fringe in a heavier, chunkier material. This particular cardigan (on sale!) caught my eye because it incorporates the trend, but it’s also thick in material for the colder weather, and the warm, vibrant colors make it look unique and unlike anything else I have in my wardrobe.

Gifts for the Holiday Hostess

C. Wonder monogram bottle stopper / The Well Appointed House personalized casserole dishes — hokey pokey pattern, blue damask pattern, black Indonesia pattern / Lilly Pulitzer earrings / Dinner Diaries: Reviving the Art of the Hostess / candles — Tory Burch, Tory Burch, and Kate Spade / Lilly Pulitzer planner / Anthropologie felt ball wreath / Williams-Sonoma myrtle letter wreath

I’m excited to share with you the first edition of my holiday gift series! Throughout the next several weeks I’m going to dedicate specific posts to creative gift ideas, honing in on both specific price points and covering a variety of gift categories.

I wanted to begin with gift ideas for the holiday hostess. There are many early holiday parties quickly approaching, so I’m making a point to order my holiday party gifts this week so they’ll arrive in time for Thanksgiving! I’ve compiled a selection (which I absolutely love) of items I believe the hostess would truly cherish. My favorite, in particular, are the customizable/monogrammed casserole dishes! They’re both beautiful and thoughtful gifts they can cherish for years to come.  Would love to know which one you’d go with in the comments!

Olive, Plaid, and a Giveaway!

Lately I’ve been perusing a lot of different stores, gaining inspiration for holiday gift ideas. I recently purchased both this plaid blanket scarf and cardigan from Nordstrom, and I can already tell they’ll both be something I’ll reach for frequently! Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to shop. I’m constantly finding items that captivate me, and there are so many different sections that draw me in. Starting this spring, our Nordstrom added a Topshop section that I could just spend hours in!

I’m excited to announce that my friend Morgan (from How 2 Wear It) and I are giving away a $60 Nordstrom gift card to help you in your holiday shopping (or as a treat to yourself)! Morgan is a good friend of mine from college, and we connected immediately through our love of fashion among other things. She’s pictured below — too cute!
