Snowy Winter Look

  I loved this sweater from the second I laid eyes on it at J.Crew, but I wanted to wait to make it mine because I knew around the holidays J.crew marks down a ton of items. So on Black Friday I finally made the jump and picked it up, and I absolutely LOVE the beautiful contrast and detailing around the turtleneck. It is one…

Trend I’m Loving: Affordable Striped Sweaters!

S E Q U I N N E D

Every holiday season, I go all-out and dig deep for the BEST sequined everything, but I keep these dresses in rotation throughout the year for special occasions like weddings, birthday parties, and occasions when I’m able to sneak away from Hudson and dress up.

Personalized Rustic Gifts For Everyone On Your List

As I get older, and the years fly, I love using the holidays as a way to reminisce. When I was younger, I was excited for the holidays because I knew it meant getting gifts. With age, that has done a 180 – because now I love the giving part much more. Anyone else feel that way too? I like to find thoughtful and personal gifts,…
