Gift Guide - Every Day Favorites!

Raindrops on roses... and whiskers on kittens... bright copper kettle and warm woolen mittens!  Ok - I wont sing anymore, but that is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time!  In case you are still looking for some last minute gift ideas I will still have a few more gift guides for you the next couple of days! Today's gift guide is a list of tried and true things that I have, love and use on the reg!

I wear my glossy red Hunters everywhere (I wore here and here) and they have been such a fun addition to my winter boots,  even in the 12 inches of snow we just got in Denver!  I know us gals (sometimes) think about fashion over functionality, but these have tons of traction so are actually great in the snow - and perfect warm with a thick sock like these cute and cozy ones ($16.50 / 40% off with code BRNICK).   

Until this year, I never imagined myself getting use out of my white jeans much after summer.  I have gotten more wear out of these jeans (I wore here) this fall and winter, more than any other pair in my closet.  And love this personalized wrap ($48) that is very similar to this one here. 

I recently wore this coat - $139 + 20% off and free shipping with code dontmelt - (for our Christmas pictures here!) and have been wearing it non stop since! It so warm and cozy, yet has a tailored fit and not overly bulky which sometimes happens with warm winter coats.

Makeup is such a great stocking stuffer!  I have had a few emails about my favorite makeup essentials.  These are them! I love mascara... I could happily leave the house without most makeup, but just feel naked without mascara.  I love the Extreme Party mascara  - it can be layered on without clumping and still makes lashes look thick and long.  I have been loading on this Extra Lip tint - it is the perfect mix of a chapstick and lipstick.... so perfect for moisturizing and adding a little color.

I am always happy to answer any questions! Please feel free to email them or comment with them below :).  Hope your week has been wonderful!


Wish List Wednesday - Holiday Dresses

Hi Friends!

I have been looking forward to these wish lists every week because it is so fun sharing all of the things that I am eyeing with you and it means it is inching towards the weekend (yipee!).  This week I have been on the hunt for the perfect holiday outfit for our upcoming Friendsgiving - which kicks off our holiday party season.  I love any occasion to get dressed up so holiday parties are the perfect excuse to wear something extra special and sparkly.  

I am planning to wear this Vince Camuto skirt for our Friendsgiving this weekend.  I think the deep plums and oranges are perfect for the season (not to mention my best friend, Emi is wearing this one and we have loved wearing matching clothes since 1st grade... #notashamed).  I really love this dress for the holidays - the big bow on the back is so sweet and feminine - and the price is really affordable ($58) (also love this almost identical Kate Spade dress, but a little pricier :) ).  I snapped this one up late last night because I know they are going to sell out quickly!  

I have also updated my shop page with tons more of my favorites and will be continuously updating it with fun dresses and and gift ideas throughout the season! And in case you missed last week's wish list with my favorite winter coats you can check it out here!

What fun party plans do you have this season? Would love to hear what your favorite dress is?!


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!
