Holiday Week of Chic: Coats for him and her and lip kit giveaway

Happy Sunday!

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and that you have been enjoying this Holiday Week of Chic Giveaway series as much as Lacey and I have.  Today we have partnered with Glo Minerals to give away a Lip Temptation Kit which makes for the most perfect holiday lip color!

We are exactly a week away from Christmas so today I am spending the day ordering the last of my gifts online to ensure they arrive on time.  With the amount of snow we have gotten over the past few days I have had coats on the brain as a great Christmas gift.  I snagged mine this summer (you know I never plan ahead, but this time I did and am so thankful!) and got this coat for steal! It is so incredibly warm and still on sale HERE and I also love this one and this one also on sale!  I found a very similar coat in four colors, I like the white, and 50% off ($89).

A person or two on my list have requested this coat (40% off with code Holiday).  I have this similar option in grey (worn here and here) and currently $134.  I also love this long puffer jacket very similar to the one I am wearing and $80.

Jonny always needs a new jacket (or two).  With the weather constantly changing and outdoor activities here in Colorado he always has a need for a slightly different layer (or so he thinks ;) ).  

Jonny gets the a ton of use out his Patagonia jackets and fleeces - he wears them to the office, after skiing and out with friends, so you can imagine he wears through them pretty quickly.  I love this plain one and this quilted one, and know he has eye on a patterned one like this .  For work I always think it is nice for a guy to have a classic pea coat and this one is 65% off!  I also like the idea of an updated fun parka like this one $199 that is nice enough for work, but warm enough for weekends in the mountains. 

Be sure to join today's giveaway and the other great giveaways that will be open for a few more days (we have two more coming your way!!) Have a wonderful Sunday!

Holiday Week of Chic: What your Bestie Wants Giveaway

Happy Friday Guys!!

We are on to day four of our Holiday Week of Chic Giveaway series! And that also means less than 10 days until Christmas (holy moly!) so I am sharing some of the things that are on my list for my best friends including some fun pieces from today's giveaway with J.McLaughlin and Margaret O'Leary.   

Guys, this Forever 21 clutch is my favorite bargain of the season ($7).  I literally bought four of them (3 as gifts and one for myself)!  My friends and I are always needing to charge our phones while we are out and about so this glittery Kate Spade charger would be a perfect gift!  I was just talking to two of my girl friends the other night and we all love these monogrammed necklaces.  Bauble Bar does a great job all together with gifts.  I just received a few of my orders in the mail and can't wait to give them on Christmas.  I particularly love this set from them!

For today's giveaway we are so excited to be partnering with J.McLaughlin and Margaret O'leary to give away a pair of sunnies and the coziest scarf!  J.McLaughlin recently launched a new line of sunglasses  and I love that a classic pair like Lacey and I are wearing never go out of style! And who doesn't need a warm piece like this scarf to bundle with during this chilly winter?

Have a wonderful Friday!!

Wish List Wednesday - Gifts for your Guys!

1. Buffalo Plaid Sweater // 2. Tie Bar Style Box // 3. Christmas Sweater Belt // 4. Activity Tracker // 5. Wayfarer Ray Bans// 6. Wool Jacket // 7.  Forester Pull on Boot // 8. Ski Tricks Needlepoint Wallet // 9. Flannel PJs // 10. Weekender // 11. Garment Bag // 12. Scuff Slippers

Good Wednesday Evening Friends!

Jonny and my dad are both pretty simple and similar in the things they like - Broncos, skiing, golf, done.  Anything that has to do with any of these things is a pretty safe bet that either or both of them will like!  

However, the last couple of years, I have had fun finding gifts that compliment the things they love, but may not obviously scream, "Go Broncos!".  For example, these Ugg Boots were not the first thing on Jonny's list when I got them for him a couple of years ago, but in the winter. he wears them more than any other shoe in his closet.  They are perfect for after skiing and even wears them on snowy/casual days to work.  I love the Smathers and Branson needlepoint pieces for gifts like this skier wallet... so fun! Jonny has a similar one with his college insignia that he loves.

My dad travels quite a bit for work and has always carried a backpack as his main form of luggage (he packs a little lighter than me :/).  Last year, Jonny and I got him this weekender from Pottery Barn that he now takes everywhere!  Dad's very favorite thing of all is his FitBit that he got himself years ago - he does not leave home without it... he can be found walking around the block before bed to insure he has gotten all his steps in for the day!

Other ideas:

  • I love this Tie Bar Style Box ($99) - which comes with 3-4 ties/ 3-4 pocket squares and matching socks.
  • If your guys need a nice jacket - this one is perfect for work or hanging with the guys (and on sale)
  • cozy jammies (30% off with code presents) and slippers are always awesome options!

The Best Cyber Monday Sales + a little giveaway

Hi Friends!!

I hope you had a great long weekend relaxing and enjoying time with your loved ones! I did a lot of my shopping on Black Friday, but always save some purchases for Cyber Monday since it is the last day to take advantage of the big deals (and sometimes best ones) before gift giving season begins.

Above are some of my picks of great sale items (click directly on item for more info) - for some reason I couldn't get these adorable Sole Society shoes to link, they are so cute and in tons of different prints and 30% off site wide today!  These Ray-Ban's are a mix of my two favorite sunglasses that I wear all of the time and are a steal ($119 - usually $170 through 11/30).  I also love this cream quilted parka I love a coat that is super cozy and warm, yet not overly bulky and still feminine (43% off today and $95 through 11/30).  I bought these pjs - so cute for the holidays and cozy for the inevitable chilly winter ahead (and 50% + an extra 15% off with code todayonly)!  I think this Kate Spade cross body (30% off today with code Shine) is such a great gift idea - they are offering personalization on a number of their items.  Personalized gifts always add such a great touch.  I always feel so special receiving a personalized gift so do my best to give them as often as possible.

Wish List Wednesday - Winter Coats

Dear Santa,

After staring for hours at last week's wish list I may or may not have eliminated two things from my wish list already - I simply needed this cape and these red Hunters for the Holiday season (both are selling out like hot cakes!).  (Do people still say that?).  I realize that this is not how a wish list is supposed to work.  A wish list is a list of things that I WISH I had and hopefully SANTA (ahem) might bring.... will be doing my best exercise my self control over the next month an a half.

I have rounded up my favorite coats this winter above.  There are also some amazing Veterans Day sales going on today on some real gems... so a perfect time to score the perfect coat for yourself or as a gift!  I have been lusting over this J.Crew Chateau Parka ($365) since last year and love all of the colors it comes in - especially the red, blush pink, grey, and camel.  I just saw that J.Crew Factory has created a similar version at almost half the price (not as many color options - but no biggie)... I love shopping there when I can!  I also love this merlot, skirted, Steve Madden coat (on sale $119) it is so feminine and would be adorable with jeans or a dress.  And this Penfield down jacket ($235) is perfect for casual days after skiing in the mountains or running errands this winter.

Which coat is your favorite??


Wish List Wednesday

Dear Santa,

I have been a mostly good girl this year.  I only crashed my scooter twice, and went over on our family data plan every other month 😳, but just in case you are still listening - these are few things I am loving!! πŸŽ…

Velvet flats ($58) // Check shirt ($44.50) // Kate Spade watch ($175.00) // Gold Slide slippers ($25.50) // Plaid Reversible cape ($48) // Hunter Rain Boots ($150) // Statement necklace ($54.50) // Plaid throw ($39) // Initial wrap ring ($125) // Talk is Chic notebook ($16) // Antler Jewelry Tray ($12) // Kate Spade dot candle ($40)

From now, through Christmas I will be posting a weekly wishlist (in addition to a few other fun gift guides) of things that are on my Christmas list and gifts that I would love to give through out the holidays.  I hope this is helpful in your holiday shopping!!

I love the idea of wearing blue suede shoes, they are classy and fun rolled into one.  These gorgeous flats are also a steal ($58) and can be worn with a pair of fun tights or jeans!  I am definitely hoping for this shirt.  I have a similar, summer version (seen here) and it is one of my very favorite shirts!  I never knew I was going to be such a big fan of capes... I posted one just yesterday (here) and love that this plaid one ($48) is similar and is also reversible which makes it versatile and easy to wear multiple ways.  I also love that they add character and a pop of color to a simple outfit.

Hope your week has been great!
