Happy Tuesday, everyone! I'm happy to announce that I've teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers from across the country for a mini style series! For the next few weeks, we're going to be dressing up for the holidays. Every week we'll have a different "Style Scenario," so stay tuned for plenty of holiday style inspiration.

This week we're tackling Thanksgiving. My style secret for this holiday? Shift dresses. Avoid anything that is belted or narrows at your waist. You're going to be eating anything and everything, so you'll need plenty of room for all that glorious food that's about to hit your belly. I wore this BB Dakota shift dress to a cute little blogger friendsgiving a few weeks ago and it was a hit! Comfortable, cute, and I had plenty of room for dessert.

Make sure to come back next Tuesday to see how we style our next holiday style scenario: the office holiday party!

Monday Must Have: Madewell Back-Zip Sweater


I have to admit: I am a sucker for a good Madewell sweater. Year after year there's always a sweater or five that pops up on my Christmas list. I love that they make high quality, timeless pieces with some sort of unique and unexpected detail.

I picked up this back-zip pullover sweater last week in-store and I'm in love. It comes in a few different colors and you can actually control the zipper's position. And you know what this little baby is perfect for? Thanksgiving. Or eating in general. This is a sweater that gives you room to expand, guys. Genius. Bravo, Madewell!

Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts Under $50


Can you believe Black Friday is next week? Whew guys. 2014 has flown by! But, everyone's favorite season is right around the corner! I'd love to introduce the first of my many gift guides coming along this season. Today I wanted to highlight some of my favorite gifts under $50. Some of these would make great stocking stuffers, gifts for secret santa, or just be a great option for all of us on a budget!

Oh and P.S., I mean if any of my IRL friends are reading....this leopard bottle stopper has my name written all over it. *hint*

I feel like I have to put this disclaimer here: these photos were taken a couple of weeks ago. Back when it was, you know, above 30 degrees outside. Remember those days? Anyway, this outfit pretty much describes how I've been dressing lately: in neutrals, maybe a pop of red here and there, and I'm making a valiant effort to wear more lipstick. I guess I'm ~growing up~. 

ALSO, just because I like you guys a lot -- I've got a new giveaway lined up for every week this holiday season. Treat yourself! Make sure to check and see if you won the Mimi's The Look giveaway AND enter this week's $50 PayPal Cash giveaway!
