Gift Guide for Every Girl on Your List

It's starting to feel like we're in the peak of holiday shopping, so today I thought I'd share with y'all a gift guide that's sure to include something for every girl on your list! A while back I asked y'all what kind of gift guides you wanted to see, and I received an overwhelming response mentioning ideas for every type of girl imaginable. So, rather than posting a million separate gift guides, I thought it would be way more efficient to give them to you all at once! This way, whether you're shopping for your mom, sister or bestie on a budget, you're sure to find something perfect! 

Friday Favorites

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! Today is my last day of classes for the semester, and I am PUMPED about it. I can't wait to start sleeping in and winding down both this weekend and throughout winter break. I still have a paper and two online exams I need to complete before I go home, but for now, I want to share with y'all all the new arrivals and sales that are worth shopping! Cozy sweaters and winter accessories make for some of the best gifts this time of year, so I made sure to include plenty of those below, too! 

The Most Charming Skirt Under $20

Those of you who follow me on Instagram may recall this darling outfit from Thanksgiving. I spent the holiday in New Orleans, where the temperatures were much more tolerable, and I was ecstatic because that meant one more week of wearing my favorite fall outfits! I know it's December now, and this may no longer be the most practical thing to wear depending on where you live. But, I absolutely love it because it's so comfortable and feminine. Plus, my skirt is less than $20, so if I were you, I'd grab it now! 

Cyber Monday Gift Guide

Good morning and happy Cyber Monday! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year, and what better way to celebrate than with some major sales?! I've never participated in Black Friday shopping, but Cyber Monday is my jam! Plus, thanks to the blizzard that plowed through Kansas yesterday, I've been able to spend this joyous occasion nestled in bed rather than in a classroom. So, basically, you could say this is one of the best Mondays ever. 

Weekly Favorites

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday! I usually post my weekly favorites on Fridays, but between driving home for Thanksgiving break and an internet outage, it just didn't happen. I couldn't justify skipping this post for another week, though, because there are SO many things I want to share with y'all – including tons of new arrivals and a can't-miss Nordstrom sale that ends TODAY!!! So, happy shopping, and I'll talk to y'all in a couple days from New Orleans!

3 Ways to Journal

The moment I sit down to journal is typically the most peaceful time of my day. I'll light a candle, put on some instrumental music and write about whatever is taking up space in head. Daily journaling is a habit I started my sophomore year of college, and surprisingly, I haven't stopped since. It began it as a way to make sense of all the thoughts going on in my head as well as a way to record my life in a manner that felt natural to me. Now I'm not saying daily journaling is for everyone, but I am a firm believer that it is one of the best ways to learn about yourself, capture memories and clear your head.

The Perfect Plaid at Public Hall

Top: Madewell (sold out, similar here) | Jeans: Bling (similar here) | Shoes: Gap Factory Chelsea boots (currently 60% off!) | Earrings: Kindred (similar here) | Necklace: Gold hammered necklace | Watch: Daniel Wellington leather strap watch | Lips: NYX butter lipstick in "Root Beer Float"

Yesterday, in an effort to solve my seasonal dilemma (Fall? Winter? I still don't know!) and hype myself up for a class presentation, I decided to swing by Public Hall – a coffee shop here in Manhattan. I've never been the biggest fan of public speaking, but recently, I've found that pumping myself full of caffeine helps me get through it better haha! Does anyone else do something like that, or is it just me?? Anyways, once I ditched my coat, I lounged around in this incredibly comfortable and versatile plaid shirt I've had since July. It's one of those pieces I firmly believe you can wear year-round and is perfect for a variety of occasions.
