Faux Fur Vest

Who received gift cards over the holiday break? I would definitely consider checking out all the sales. Seems like my inbox is still filling up everyday with emails advertising new ‘discounts’ or ‘markdowns’. I cashed in my Neimans gift card with this faux fur vest from CUSP. It was over 60% off! I couldn’t choose between the light pink color or tan, so I played it safe and went with the neutral. I’m so #basic. I also picked up this black and rose gold bracelet from Victoria Emerson.

Pom Pom Beanie

I’m a little late to the game for my first post of 2016. I guess you could say the first week back got the best of me. The struggle was real. But, I’m here now and I’m going to make the most of the new year! I’m looking forward to more travels and adventures around the world and in my own backyard. Speaking of adventures, we kissed 2015 goodbye with some snowmobiling in Tahoe (you can see more on my insta). Thanks to el nino, we got some much needed snow. I finally got to pull out some of my coats and beanies! This new pom pom beanie from Free People (thank you Santa!) was the perfect pop of pink against the white, blizzard day!

Last Minute Gift Ideas

Just like every other year, the weeks seem to zoom past me around the holidays. I can’t really say where November and December went, but I’m excited that Christmas is less than 5 days away. I’m also excited that I’ve finished all my shopping and wrapping! Whew. Not quite there yet? I’ve put together some items if you’re feeling stumped for the gals in your life. I’m definitely gravitating towards fur items this year. I think it has to do with the fact that I’m headed to the snow for a white New Years Eve. This fur pom pom bag charm or fur pom beanie would make the perfect gifts or stocking stuffers!

Turban Headband

I’ve got the ultimate travel bug. I haven’t even been home a week yet, and I’m already dreaming of our next vacation. I know, I know #firstworldproblems. I love planning out our next adventure because it gives us something to look forward too. I’ve got a few tropical, Caribbean places in mind for next summer. A girl can dream!

I wore this look during our time in Krabi. This turban headband from Anthropologie kept my flyaways and frizzy, humid hair in place. It paired well with this lightweight Sonja Raga dress (under $50). I always pack a cream/white dress for warmer vacations. They seem to pair with everything and always look good with a tan!
