Can you believe the holiday season is in full swing! People are already ordering their turkeys; myself included. Plus, everyone is diving right into holiday sparkle, shades of red and green, and Christmas decor. Seriously-so many homes in my neighborhood have already decorated for Christmas! It seems early. . .am I right?? I still have my fall wreath on the door. My Christmas wreath is still packed away in the garage. Maybe I need to pull it out early? What are you doing this year?

Anyway, let’s get back to what’s hot right now! After all, we are here to stay on top of the latest IT items and trends! As you know, faux leather is hot this season! You’ll find tons of jackets and pants to choose from. I love this pair of faux leather pants since they offer a self-tie belt, and a flattering silhouette. Plus, the faux leather looks real, and it’s very soft. Stay tuned! I will post photos of myself wearing them very soon!

Classic lip and nail colors are what’s in fashion right now. Shades of red are the ultimate IT nail polish color for the holiday season, and if red isn’t your thing, go for a classic shade of pink. Nails and makeup are timeless right now as we glide through the holiday season. The spring season will offer us brighter colors in apparel, and this tends to take nail color in a more classic direction; as not to compete with the overall outfit. Red and/or pink nail polish a good investment for right now.

‘Tis the season to sparkle! I am so happy the holiday season is upon us. Last year, we were still locked down here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we were unable to gather with family members from outside our household. This year, I am looking forward to seeing my family, and enjoying the holiday season. That being said, I need to make sure I have enough festive looks for the various casual and dressy events I plan to attend!

For my casual holiday capsule wardrobe, I have this cozy tweed jacket, two sparkling puff sleeve tops, a long sleeve satin top for cold days or outdoor events, these fabulous faux leather pants, and my current go-to jeans. All of these pieces can be mixed and matched for endless outfit ideas! These holiday outfits can also be paired with sparkling crystal jewelry, or more understated, daytime jewelry; depending on the occasion. Love!

Well, parties are back in style this year! Therefore, I need a few dressy options. This green pleated skirt from fall is perfect to slide right into the holiday season. Of course, what holiday season is complete without a sparkling sequin piece! This skirt is currently on sale; it’s fun, festive, and the skirt version of the little black dress. It can be worn daytime, nighttime, or anytime! Love!

Since these fabulous, faux leather pants are my current obsession, they too can be worn to evening events. Paired with heels, a sparkling top and jewelry, as well as an evening bag, these pants are great for outdoor events where my legs could get cold in a skirt. Love!

Things are opening up! The weather is fabulous, and the economy is opening; this means it’s the perfect time to head over to Downtown Tiburon and shop local! The Perfect Provenance is my favorite local boutique. The shop is full of on trend clothing for both men and women, as well as children’s books, home decor, accessories, and the most amazing gifts!

The Perfect Provenance is full of artisan candles, luxurious fragrances, vacation-ready handbags, jewelry from local designers, and some products which directly charity. There is a little bit of everyone in-store, love that!

I picked up luxurious soap for my Mom for Mother’s Day. As you can see in the photo at the top of this post, the soap is made in France, and has the most amazing scent. I chose “Lavande” for her since she is a huge lavender fan. I know she will love it! In addition to the soap, I also picked up fragrance from Veronique Gabai, which only uses natural, ethically sourced ingredients. They also use green chemistry, and biodegradable materials. Mom will love this!

If you are looking for fragrance, and/or candles for Mom, The Perfect Provenance has something I am sure she will love.

Oh, and speaking of products with a cause. . .

On the surface, this look like a trendy tee with the word “Peace” written on the front. Underneath it all, this tee is anything from ordinary; in fact, it is extraordinary and special. alivia is an extra special brand, which takes inspiration from autistic artists. Everything from the art to the stitches was hand-made by autistic artisans. In addition, 10% of sales goes back to the artist’s non-profit. Love that! This tee is a must-have for summer. It will look so cute with shorts and sandals. They also make sweatshirts, masks, and scrunchies. Love!
