I’m breaking down this post by retailer in alphabetical order and will include my top picks from the sale. Don’t forget to click through with the arrows for more of my favorites.
Given that temperatures are dropping in the western hemisphere and winter is starting to creep up, I want to share how to style a mint green cardigan for fall and winter. Plus, Norfolk just had the Grand Illumination Parade, trust me it’s a really big and bright deal, so that means Christmas is right around the corner! Mint green is traditionally more of a spring and summer color. I remember back in 2012, pining for all things mint, whether it was a good blouse or pair of mint gingham pants (holy crap, what a throwback to an embarrassing, younger version of me!). Mint is still a great color to wear but I can understand the challenges of styling it for fall and winter.
I have a soft spot for sweaters. Next to dresses, they are my favorite clothing item. There’s something about how soft, thick and cozy there are that makes me swoon. I love when I get to pull out my sweaters from winter boxes and have them all around me as I hang them up for the season. A silhouette I’m starting to love is the oversized tunic sweater. I first got this style last year in two colors, ivory and red. This year, I am adding this mulberry color and a dusty blue to my wardrobe. This sweater comes in plenty of gorgeous shades so you’re sure to find the perfect one.
I’m a big believer in giving gifts people will use. After all, you’re spending your hard-earned money so you don’t want it to go to waste! I’m partnering with Mark & Graham to share practical gifts for him and her. One reason I love Mark & Graham is you can personalize every gift. Adding a monogram is the extra touch and can make a gift truly unique and memorable. Plus, you can shop for anyone there, whether it’s a significant other, parent, best friend or coworker. My photographer who took these photos is actually looking at items to gift her bridesmaids from Mark & Graham. I’m breaking this post into gifts for him and gifts for her. If you’re an early shopper, grab some coffee or warm tea and settle in! I’ve got plenty of great gift ideas for you! Plus, Mark & Graham wrap all gifts in their signature gift wrap, so you don’t even have to do anything. Once they arrive, tuck them under the tree and you are all set.
When cold-weather season rolls around, I love bringing out my coat collection. Some of my favorite coats are currently 30 percent off with code ‘FRIENDS’ so if you’re looking to cozy up, now is the time! This gray wool coat for petite women is a silhouette I’m starting to really love. It’s versatile enough to where you can wear it casually or dress it up. My first lodge coat is from last winter and throughout the season, I just loved how it fit. Since I got the boucle wool version, I knew I wanted something that’s less of a statement. Before it gets too cold where you are, I want to share three reasons you need this winter coat. Plus, it’s on sale!
