Under $100: EIGHT | NINE | TEN | ELEVEN | TWELVE | THIRTEEN

Happy Friday! Kicking off the weekend right with a post filled with pretty jewels!  It’s my jewelry gift ideas for Christmas, and I’ve divided them up into two categories – splurge ranging from $200-$500 and under $100.  Feel free to forward this post to your S.O., secret santa, family, or just share a link to this post on Facebook with your favorite number for a nice subtle hint. 😉

For the splurges, I included a David Yurman bracelet stack because you can’t have just one.  I own the classic cable cuff (#7) and love it.  I’m hoping to add another bracelet either this holiday season or maybe with a few holiday gift cards in the new year.  I also included a few other popular brands like Bony Levy and Monica Vinader.

For the under $100, I hit up brand favorites Kendra Scott,  Gorjana, and Pandora.  All the pieces are affordable options that also come with great quality. For both categories, I chose classic styles that can easily mix into anyone’s existing jewelry collection.  I included  a few rose gold pieces, because I’m currently crushing on all the rose gold jewelry.  Many of these pieces come in silver and gold, and some in rose gold.  For the non-diamond pieces, you will have several stone color options.  If you are unsure of which color to buy, I suggest picking a neutral like white or clear.

I hope your holiday shopping is off to a smooth start.  I have a few more gift guides planned, and I shared more ideas in The Holiday Gift Shop.  I will be adding gift ideas to this page from now until Christmas.  Ya’ll have a fabulous weekend!

A Cardigan, A Coat, A Casual Coatigan

Casual fall outfit | gray cardigan | black booties | Top Houston Fashion Blogger Lady in VioletWe survived Thanksgiving and Cyber Week Sales, and now we move on to the Christmas season.  I love the Christmas season, the music, lights, decor, Hallmark movies, oh it’s so fun!  I’m planning a little bit different holiday content this year.  I’m kind of excited about it, so stay tuned as I share a little bit of my love of the Christmas season with you alongside the fabulous outfit posts of course.

We are currently in a mix of weather over here, so all the layers are necessary.  I have purchased a couple cardigan coats before, or as they are becoming know the coatigan.  It’s a way to create a slightly dressier look to the normal cardigan without the weight of a coat.  It’s perfect for our in between weather!

This casual coatigan has a blazer like feel with the lapel lines on the front.  The salt and pepper dark gray make it work with both colors and neutrals.  It would be really cute over a dress too.  I loved pairing it with the white and light gray to really pull out the flecks of white in the knit. I went a little more casual with this look by adding my black booties, but a pair of black or red heels could easily dress the look up a bit.

I hope your week is going well and thanks for stopping by!!

Anyone else still full from yesterday!?!?!  It was good though, worth it!  Now that Thanksgiving is over and done, Hello Christmas Season!  At the bottom of today’s post I have rounded up some of the best Black Friday Sales in fashion, jewelry, beauty, and home goods.  Be sure to check it out and use it as your source while you do your holiday shopping today!  I have my christmas list by my side for my gift shopping today, plus a few items on my treat myself list.  I mean it is the perfect day to pick up a few of the beauty and fashion items I have been eyeing lately.

But before we start our Black Friday shopping or continue depending when you are reading this post, let’s talk about this outfit.  This workwear look is one of my favorite work outfits for fall.  It’s a classic outfit combination I recreate within my closet over and over again.  It start with a fitted top like this adorable bow tie sweater top paired with a cute skirt, and finished off with the perfect slouchy suede boots.

I have a gray and black flared skirt I keep in rotation for this outfit combo.  This season, I added this cute black one. I love the white details on the bottom for a different look to a solid color or full print skirt. I often pair this look with a solid fitted sweater or tee, but I couldn’t resist this adorable bow tie top with puff sleeves.  I think it was made for this skirt and boots combo!  It would also be cute with jeans for a casual holiday outfit.

Alright ya’ll, keep scrolling down to get to my list of Black Friday Sales and Happy Shopping!  Be sure to check back this weekend for more gift guides and on Monday a big list of Cyber Monday Sales along with items seen here on the blog that are on sale!  See you soon.
