If you knew me two years ago, you would know I hated anything plaid, pearls, or polka dots (yes, I had a one track mind back then). As of lately though, these fun alternatives have really brightened up my wardrobe and have added some statements along the way. Last week, I took a little stroll with my mom in our hometown of NH and we stopped along this apple farm (to pick up apple pies, of course!). Loving this plaid and pearl combo & it just may be on repeat in the weeks to come!

Happy Monday, loves!

Holiday Gift Guide for the Bestie…

The gift giving season is fast approaching, and though I LOVE this time of year (gift giving is one of my favorites), finding the perfect present let alone the perfect present for your BESTIE can be stressful at times. How can the person you know so well and who literally loves everything you do be so hard to shop for? Well ladies, I wanted to make this year a little easier for you, so I created a Holiday Gift Guide for the Bestie! The items I found are perfect for the holiday season, yet can still be used after the holidays are way over. Also, all these finds are from Nordstrom, which is a great place to shop especially for presents because the exchange policy is AMAZING (but you’re gift will be so fab, I highly doubt there will be any returns)!

Till next time, sweets!

SHIRT: Marshalls (similar here) / JEANS: Lord and Taylor (similar here) / SHOES: Jessica Simpson (similar) / HANDBAG: Kate Spade / FLOWER CROWN: Kenzie Jaws (similar)

I have always loved the Bohemian style- the airy and light pieces make for a romantic silhouette I cannot get over! Inspired by this lusty appearance, I found this Flower Crown at a local street market in Boston and instantly knew I NEEDED it! And it literally brings out my inner flower child- not kidding! The color goes perfectly with Fall, and I find myself wanting to incorporate it with all my sweaters & dresses! Check out Kenzie Jaws- her Flower Crowns are all handmade, and literally look real!

HANDBAG: Kate Spade (old, similar style here) EARRINGS: ILYCouture (similar) WATCH: Marc Jacobs / BRACELT: Swarovski

Something about floppy hats this season…I just want to wear them with every outfit! They are so versatile, and they add so much character to any style. I’ve been dying to wear this Cape Jacket I snagged from Jolly Chic (best site ever for cute, affordable clothes, btw!), and finally had the chance this weekend. Though I wasn’t so into the Halloween spirit, I’m still loving everything Fall. Temps drop so much yesterday- let’s just say I am no way near ready for snow!

Happy Monday, loves!
