How could I resist this path, filled with beautiful fall leaves, in the parking lot at Stanford Shopping Center? I couldn’t! My original plan was to find some pretty holiday decor, and snap some photos in front of it, but then, I saw this path and had to change my plans immediately! Can you blame me? These fall colors are soooooo pretty!!

While it is still technically fall outside, I am in full-on holiday mode. This fall season has been so busy with my kids schedules, that I haven’t really had time to relax, or think! I am craving the holiday season because it means peaceful time with my family, moments to share with my friends, and more time to chat about fashion, style, and beauty with you! Love that!

When Chico’s sent me this black twin set as a holiday gift last week, I was thrilled! I love a good classic twin set; especially in black! This is a great twin set to reach for on casual days since it is over-sized. I gave it a little holiday flair with my green scarf from my holiday capsule wardrobe. I can definitely give it more sparkle after Thanksgiving 🙂 If you don’t own a classic twin set, you need one! Definitely check this one out, it comes in a ton of colors! Love!

Are you excited for the holiday season too? Despite it being busy, do you find it peaceful and relaxing too?

Thanks for stopping by!

Holidays 2019 bag wardrobe

holiday handbag capsule wardrobe

It’s entirely possible I have been in a black handbag mood for the past year. As you can see, all my bags are black right now! Well, black is classic, and can seamlessly move from season to season. This makes black handbags a great investment option if you are looking for longevity in your bags; and despite my handbag shopping addiction, I do look for longevity in my bags! haha, hard to believe right?!

For the holiday 2019 season, my handbag capsule wardrobe contains one mini bag I can wear to parties. This mini bag is my Valentino VSling. It’s a great little bag since it can be worn for both casual parties, and dressy events. It plays well with the sequin looks from my holiday capsule wardrobe. If you don’t have a little bag to pull out for the holiday 2019 season, I highly recommend this one! It’s a current IT bag, and the strap is convertible. See my full review here.

Since the holidays are busy, a cross body bag is a must. If you don’t need a lot of room, but want to remain hands-free, this cross body bag works like a charm. It is also convertible. It can be a cross body bag, or a belt bag. Love that!

The rainy season will start soon, and football season isn’t over. So, this little PVC tote is perfect since it is stadium approved when the interior pouch is removed; and since it’s PVC, it is rain proof. Love! Be sure to incorporate a PVC bag into your holiday wardrobe for those reasons. This is an IT bag and priced under $200. Love!

Lastly, my workhorse bag this holiday season is my Chloe Aby. It’s roomy and can be worn over the shoulder, or cross body. This makes it ideal for busy holiday, errand filled days.

That’s it! Four bags should get you through the busy holiday season. Shop your closet for a small or mini bag you can wear to formal affairs, one cross body bag, a PVC bag, and a workhorse bag. If you are missing any of these bag styles for the holiday season, check out my picks, and invest in once!

Have a fabulous holiday season!
