25 Under $25 (1)
25 Under $25 (2)
I like to think I saved the best for last! Looking for something awesome without having to spend a ton of money this Christmas? I've got you covered! If we're being literal, this should really be called "24 Under $25 and Cute Stationery for $26." I broke the rules a little - no big deal, right?! All the other items above are well under $25 and some of them even come in at under $20! You can't beat that! This may be the final gift guide, but don't you fret, there's still a ton of stuff lined up for the holidays around here! Stay tuned! In the meantime, browse back through the other gift guides from this week right here!

NORDSTROM slippers, $24 | NORDSTROM tea towel, $12 | BAUBLEBAR necklace, $20 (limited time)



I feel like I say this with every "stocking stuffer" gift guide but....STOCKINGS ARE MY FAVORITE! I would probably be satisfied on Christmas morning if all we did were stockings. My mom has always been so great at filling my stocking with unique and unexpected things and she's always made it incredibly special. And what's even more fun is when everything is wrapped and then put into the stocking. (Yes, I'm a kid) Below are the links to some of my favorite stocking stuffer ideas for this year. And if you're curious, here's a fun article about the history of the Christmas stocking. (Yes, I'm a nerd, too!)

Holiday Gift Guide: KIDDOS

Gift Guide: KIDDOS

Buying for kids is so much fun because everything you find is so stinkin' cute. I rounded up some great pieces for boys, girls, and babies from some of my favorite shops. Whenever I'm shopping for little ones, I'm always focused on finding something they'll wear, use, or will work their brain. I'm not a fan of mindless toys and I think the pieces above are a perfect mix!

On a side note, if you're looking for great items for decorating a kid's room, Waiting on Martha is the place to shop. She has some of the most unique pieces! I think I've included her in every gift guide so far, too! The Land of Nod is also a great stop for kid shopping!

My Style: Old & New

Old pieces are new again when you throw on some updated and current accessories. This dress and fur vest are several years old, but still two of my favorite fall pieces in my closet. I paired a new clutch and necklace with it to give it a fresh spin. Get the details and shop similar pieces below!

Holiday Gift Guide: FOR HIM

Gift Guide: FOR HIM

Guys are so hard to buy for! Am I right? In my past relationships, I've always struggled when it came time for gift giving. There could never be an element of surprise because I would always have to ask for explicit detail about what to buy. I like to think this gift guide above is pretty killer, though. All the items have substance. Always keep this in mind when shopping for a guy - buy them something they would never buy for themselves. It's a guaranteed win.

Weekend Wishes: Lesson in Layering

I love layering weather, don't you? It's comfortable, it's chic, and it looks good on everyone. The photos above are some of my favorite layering looks as of lately. They all do it so effortlessly - bonus points for that! It snowed here again yesterday and there's nothing more I want right now than to have my Christmas tree up. I've been pinning my little heart out, gathering some new ideas for this year's decorations. The holidays are just dang cozy. 

This weekend is sure to get me in the holiday spirit as my mom and I are going down to Charlotte for the Southern Christmas Show. Be sure to follow along on instagram - I feel certain I'll be taking tons of photos! Below are some links for you to browse this weekend - enjoy!

This tree skirt from Furbish nearly knocked me over. Gimme gimme!

I love this pink and brown palette that Lindsay came up with for a Thanksgiving table - such an unexpected twist!

I love the real life vs. instagram life articles and posts that people write. Here's another one that is spot-on.

Taylor Swift drives me absolutely bananas but you have to admit, this is hysterical.

Speaking of layering, this week's My Style post is one of my favorite fall looks.
