  1. Don’t get stressed! It can be really overwhelming.

  2. Only shop for things you really need or want to get as gifts. It can be so easy to see something on sale and buy it just because it’s half off. Remember you don’t need to buy everything lol.

  3. Shop from home / online as much as possible. The days of waiting in line for hours for a TV that is $200 dollars below retail are gone. No need to leave the comfort of your couch unless you want to!

  4. Remember there’s so many things on sale today that aren’t just clothes and gifts, you can also book your next trip or even a botox appointment today, almost everyone has some sort of deal going on!

  5. Have fun! That’s what the holidays are about after all :)

Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping guys! Where are you spending your Thanksgiving holiday this year?

3 Ways to Wear Blue Pin Stripes for Spring and Summer

When it comes to prints for Spring and Summer one always comes to mind, and it's florals. As Miranda Priestly would say: "Florals for Spring? GROUNDBREAKING." While I love a good floral almost any time of year, this year it seems that stripes are actually taking the spotlight. They've been popping up on everything from statement tops to wide leg trousers, and it seems every it-girl is rocking a stripe in one way or another. My personal favorite way to rock a stripe this season? A blue pinstripe, and I'm digging it on tops as well as bottoms, or accessories! There's something preppy and pulled together about the classic print that can go with so much. It also has the tendency to class up a pair of ripped jeans. Below see two of my favorite ways to rock this pattern, and shop some of my faves!

1) A statement top: 

Statement tops are everywhere, and I can't help but gravitate to them every time I see them in a stripe. Here I'm wearing this fabulous off the shoulder flare-sleeved version from Azalea SF which goes great with anything from a skinny jean, to a wide legged pant, to a suede mini like I'm wearing here from AG Jeans. (Quite possibly my favorite thing in my closet right now, btw. It's such a stunning piece!)

2) A high waisted short: 

Stripes are notoriously tricky on the body but these are flattering since they're small and vertically placed. Put a pinstripe on a high waisted short or jean and it's bound to be magic. I love the blue and white on these and they're so fun to play around with for Summer. I've worn them with a pussy bow blouse here, but they'd also be great with a bodysuit or simple tee and sandal. The ones I'm wearing here are the Juliette short from AG Jeans

3) A striped mini bucket bag:

Nothing says "Oui Oui" like a striped mini bucket bag with fringe. I've been wearing this little guy with everything and I love the pin stripe to give it a little fun flare. Every time I use it I have to ask myself: "Am I French yet?" Unfortunately, no, but at least I can dress like I am ;).

Shop this one I'm wearing here: Calistoga mini bag, or here:  Calistoga mini bag in Vegan leather.
