Holiday gifts for you and me

Holiday party outfit c/o Chico’s: red dangle earrings / black turtleneck / gold and black velvet ruana / gold and red statement necklace / velvet pants /

The holiday season is in full swing, and I know what I want from Santa! I also happen to know what my friends will want from him too 😉 Shopping for my friends is always fun. They are bold, athletic yet chic, adventurous, kind, and downright fabulous! I know I can find the perfect gifts for them at Chico’s!

Let’s face it, holiday shopping includes a ton of shopping for both ourselves and others. It’s hard to resist snapping up beautiful items we may need when we see them alongside something we know a friend or family member would love to receive. So, this holiday season, and every holiday season, I will shop for myself while I shop for gifts!

Holidays gifts for you and me

gifts ideas for her holiday gifts for myself

Holiday gifts for her from left: gold and black scarf (under $50!) / golden travel case (under $50!) / snowflake brooch (under $50!) / red reversible ruana (under $100!) /

I’m loving these travel cases for the holiday 2019 season. I have a few trips planned next year, and these cases would be ideal for keeping my suitcase organized. My friends love to travel too which means this travel case would be perfect for them; hopefully my BFF’s aren’t reading this-or they will guess what I am placing under the tree for them!

Jewelry is always a fabulous stand-by when it comes to gift-giving, and Chico’s has some amazing pieces to give this season. I am swooning over this snowflake brooch. It adds sparkle during the dreary winter season, and it’s also an easy way to spice up a coat or jacket. Love it!

One of my favorite items to give is a sweater. This ruana is really fun for the holiday season since it seems like a sweater, yet offers a sophisticated silhouette which can be dressed up or down. It also comes in a ton of colors; and it’s reversible! It will be the perfect gift.

Scarves are another stand-by gift. Everyone loves to receive a scarf! Many of us love to give ourselves scarves too! Haha one for me, one for you! I am obsessed with this sparkling and chic scarf from Chico’s. It will be under the tree for someone in family. Shhhh!! Don’t tell her! 😉

In addition to gifts, ‘tis the season for parties! This season I am attending events held inside homes. I love these velvet pants, and this chic velvet ruana for holiday house parties. They are really comfortable, yet chic and festive. Love that! The entire look is Chico’s, but I’m sure you guessed that already 😉

What gifts do you plan to give this holiday season? What are you hoping to find underneath the tree for yourself?

Have a fabulous holiday season!

XOXO

Vintage inspired with Chico’s at New York Fashion Week

new york fashion week street style nyfw style street style new york fashion week

wearing: gold earrings c/o Chico’s / sunglasses c/o Chico’s / neckerchief scarf c/o Chico’s / black top c/o Chico’s / polka dot skirt c/o Chico’s / gold bangle bracelet c/o Chico’s / black pvc tote / black high heel boots /

One of the big trends I noticed on the spring 2020 runways was vintage inspiration from the 50’s, 60’s, and 90’s. Although we have barely touched the fall season, it is always fun to see which trends will reach well into the next year; and vintage inspiration is one of them!

When I spotted this mixed print, polka dot skirt at Chico’s for the fall season, I knew I needed I build a vintage inspired look around it. Chico’s has a fabulous selection of print scarves for fall, so I thought a contrasting print neckerchief tied 90’s style would do the trick. After all, 90210 has been revived, so aren’t we all feeling a little nostalgic for the 90’s?

I’m a sucker for a good black top which can pair with anything in my closet, so this understated black twist top looked perfect for tying the look together. I love how it looks amazing with this skirt, and also with jeans and sneakers. It’s definitely going to be my go-to black top this fall!

Now, isn’t fashion week all about pushing the limits of style? Of course! So I had to snap up these fun black and white sunglasses from Chico’s too. They added the perfect amount of pizzazz to my New York Fashion Week look. This was so much fun to wear to the runways! I loved mixing vintage inspiration from multiple decades, it’s a fun look.

Shop my New York Fashion Week look from Chico’s:

I also wore this scarf around my ponytail with another outfit during the week, and the sunglasses were worn with every outfit except one. Chico’s has such great mix-and-match  pieces, they are great for travel and building a wardrobe in general. Be sure to check out everything new for fall at Chico’s!

Thanks for stopping by!

XOXO
