During this time of year, I tend to get wrapped up (pun intended) with finding the 'perfect' present for my loved ones. With Thanksgiving tomorrow, I have been thinking about the things I am truly thankful for. This led me to look for items that not only would make a special gift, but also give back to others. Here is a list of options whose proceeds are used to help others.

I will be working up until the last possible hour today, so my plan tonight is to finish packing and prep for my flight home tomorrow morning. I can't wait to give my family a big hug and spend the long weekend with them. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels! xx

Fur Vest

Vest: Zara (kids) | Pants: J.Crew | Turtleneck: Splendid | Boots: Tory Burch (budget friendly version here) | Bracelet: J.Crew Factory | Bag: Forever 21

This Fall, I have not been able to get enough of this faux fur vest. Can you keep a secret? I purchased it a couple of months ago in the largest size from the kids section of Zara. The vest is definitely a standout piece, so I decided to pair it with my brown Splendid turtleneck and favorite J.Crew pixie pants for a more classic look. What do you think? xx

Gift Guide: Hostess with the Mostess

1. C.Wonder | 2. Jonathan Adler | 3. Restoration Hardware | 4. C.Wonder | 5. Kate Spade | 6. Amazon | 7. Tocca Candle

With Thanksgiving around the corner and invites flowing in, the holiday party season is officially here! Above are gift ideas for your hostess with the mostess this year. My suggestion: think about your hostess' personal style. Look for items that you think they would want, but that they do not always spend the extra money on. For instance, a fresh smelling candle or personalized stationary are both thoughtful items that they may not treat themselves to on a regular basis. xx

With the cold weather quickly approaching, it is officially time to start bringing out our winter accessories. Here is a list of items that I hope will help keep you warm, while still looking and feeling chic. After all, we shouldn't have to compromise our personal style, just because it is cold outside. Number one on my list, is the faux fur snood. Stay warm this weekend! xx

A Few Things

Here are a few of the little things I have had my eye on over the past week. It has gotten chilly here in Chicago, so I am sure you can tell that I am beginning to lean towards warmer and warmer items. Cheers to being half way through the work week! xx

Saturday Morning

Flats: Aldo (similar here) | Sweater: J.Crew | Denim: Paige | Bangles: J.Crew and Madewell | Sunnies: Anthropologie

The weather was beautiful on Saturday, so I decided to leave my coat behind. I wore my new favorite turtleneck sweater (originally mentioned here), leopard flats, skinnies, and a few gold bangles. It ended up being the perfect outfit choice for running errands and enjoying a casual morning in the windy city. How did you spend your Saturday? xx

So Clutch

1. Topshop | 2. Blair Ritchey | 3. Gigi New York | 4. Claire Vivier | 5. Asos 

After carrying a big tote bag to work all week, I love to minimize the weight during the evening and weekends. Here are a few of the clutch's that I currently have my eye on. I have chosen them from various retailers and designers, in my favorite colors and prints for this season. Blair Ritchey's Belt Bag is my particular favorite at the moment. I am also adoring the Gigi New York clutch, because you have the option to personalize it with your monogram. Which one is your favorite? xx

Forever 21 Sweater (similar here) | Leather Leggings (similar here and here) | J.Crew Factory Bracelet | Madewell Bracelet | Tory Burch Flats | Forever 21 Bag

I am absolutely, positively in love with this fuzzy sweater I found recently at Forever 21. Because I wanted it to fit a bit looser, I purchased it in one size larger than normal. It is so comfortable and I think the cream color is perfect for this coming winter. I decided to pair it with my leather leggings, some gold accessories, a red lip and nails. I hope you had a fun weekend! xx
