Holiday Sparkle with Loft

Can you believe we are less than 2 weeks away from Christmas?! How did this happen?! It feels like we wait so long for the holidays to get here and then when December hits... BOOM! It goes so fast! This week I have been working on finishing up my Christmas shopping and I think I'm finally just about done! 

Today I'm teaming up with Loft to bring you a few last minute gift ideas for any lady on your list! Loft has always been one of my favorite retailers not only for their quality pieces and classic style, but for their beautiful jewelry and accessories! I snagged a handful of earrings and necklaces to give as gifts to my mom, sister in law, mother in law, etc! The great thing about jewelry is that you don't have to worry about sizing!




I just love all the statement earrings that are out right now, and this pair goes perfectly with my new leopard print top and chenille cardigan

I also grabbed this pack of stud earrings that would be a great gift for any new mom or mom with young kids! I typically wear studs during the day and especially when I'm home with the kids. Also, these initial necklaces are the perfect personalized gift! 


I absolutely LOVE these shimmer chevron leggings! They are the perfect leggings to wear for the holidays and just add something extra to your otherwise ordinary pair of leggings. I paired them with this tunic length v neck sweater which is SO soft! 


These pretty crystal fringe statement earrings add an extra touch of sparkle and fun to the outfit! And my initial necklace is the perfect addition!


Now is a great time to shop because Loft is offering 50% off your order and free shipping with code: MERRY!

Loft Try On | December 2018

Happy Friday, lovelies! I wanted to share this post today because Loft is having their 50% off your purchase event through the weekend (ends Sunday!)!! So, if you're not able to make it into the store, I have some ideas of what to order. They have SO many great sweaters, ponchos and cold weather accessories right now. It's the perfect time to stock up for the season!

I stopped into the Loft at Easton Town Center yesterday and I was so excited to try on all the things! Sweaters and ponchos were on the top of my list now that the temps have dropped to freezing here in Columbus! I always love sweaters from loft because I know they will be high quality and will last through several seasons! There were some really great festive options for the holidays as well!

(Just for reference, I'm 5'2" and typically wearing a XS/S in tops and S/4/27 in bottoms)

Here's what I tried on and loved:



I loved the detail on the sleeves of this sweater! So pretty! (Runs true to size, wearing XS but ordering a small). I am also wearing the Modern Skinny jeans in black, size 27.





This cardigan is SO soft and cozy! I just love the blush pink color too (comes in a few other colors). Runs TTS, wearing small.






I love this plaid blouse! Perfect for the holidays, church or the office! I paired it with this super soft chenille cardigan.





These 2 ponchos were on my list to try on! I am loving this trend and they are both perfect to throw over a long sleeve tee! Both of these ponchos are super soft too! The red and navy plaid one is reversible and perfect for the holidays!




I love the pattern detail on this open front cardigan! Wearing an XS, but could go up to a Small. I'm also wearing the velvet leggings! These leggings are so comfortable and come up higher on the waist with a thicker band which helps to shape the mid section! 




For my tall girls, Loft has a ton of great tunic length sweaters out right now! These are all perfect paired with leggings! 




I love both of these cowl neck sweaters! The one above is a bit thicker with a ribbed texture. Both fit true to size (wearing a small in both)





This outfit was probably my favorite! I loved the fit of this V neck tunic sweater! Pairs perfectly with the velvet leggings and an infinity scarf. (wearing small in both the sweater and leggings)






Last, but not least, how sweet is this cowl neck sweater dress?! It is super soft, not at all itchy! The length is great! I love the button detail on the sleeves too! Runs true to size, I'm wearing a small.

Gift Guide for Him

Happy first Monday of December! I'm kicking off my December posts with a gift guide for the main guy in your life today. I swear, Bill is always the most difficult to buy for, so I try to get his gift first and get it over with! Anyone else feel like guys are so hard to buy for? Anyways, I have been collecting some ideas over the past couple of weeks and decided to round up a bunch of my favorites for this post. But, make sure to check out my Gifts for Him Under $50 page under the 'Christmas Shop' tab for some more ideas that may not have made it on this post! I've also included some splurge gift ideas at the bottom if you guys are looking to spend a little more on your man!


Here are my top 10 picks for Gifts for Guys:

1. Half Zip Cotton & Cashmere Pullover ($59.50): Every guy needs a nice pullover sweater in their wardrobe. This is perfect to pair over plaid or dress shirts and looks great dressed up or down! 

2. Antlers Glass Decanter & Wood Stopper ($48.40): I love the etched antlers in this glass decanter! It would be the perfect gift for the guy in your life that appreciates 'spirits'! 

3. BOSE SoundSport Free Wireless Headphones ($169): Wireless headphones are a popular splurge gift this year. Since the Apple AirPods are basically sold out everywhere online, these are a great alternative. They are meant to be used while working out, so they are optimized for that purpose and are water resistant.

4. Tim Tebow: This Is the Day ($14.99): This book is for the guy in your life that loves football and reading. It's more of a self-help book, but also goes into Tim's own life experiences.

5. Timex Leather Band Watch ($249): I was drawn to the sleek, no fuss design of this watch. Bill is definitely not 'flashy' when it comes to watches and he needs a new leather band one that he can dress up or down. This one would be the perfect addition to his collection!

6. Tie Gift Set ($49): This would be the perfect gift for the working guy! Comes with a tie, pocket square handkerchief, and a pair of socks! You can get the pocket square monogramed for an additional $9.50. Lots of colors and patterns to choose from as well.

7. Breakfast Sandwich Maker ($18.99!): I think I may get this for every single guy on my list! What guy doesn't like a breakfast sandwich in the morning? Also comes with directions and recipes on how to make a variety of sandwiches.

8. Yeti 20 oz Rambler Travel Mug ($29.99): These Yeti mugs have been so popular this year! This is the perfect travel size and will help keep his coffee warm all morning!

9. Jack Black - The Fresh Man Set ($25): This set comes with a facial cleanser, oil-free moisturizer and a body/hair wash. Smells amazing!

10. Adidas Energy Cloud 2 Sneakers ($48.97): The perfect casual weekend sneaker! And they are on sale for less than $50!
