Marley Lilly

fleece vest

While I was on my trip, I had some seriously cute goodies from Marley Lilly delivered to my door, and I’m so excited to finally be sharing them with you! The lovely ladies sent me the Monogrammed Fleece Vest, $44.99 and the Christmas Plaid Blanket Scarf, $39.99. Both are beyond cute.

In terms of sizing, I usually wear a small in outerwear. Thinking the vest would be the same, I ordered a small, but it’s waaay too big. (Thank goodness for tailors, right?) As soon as I get it taken in, you can bet I’ll be wearing it everywhere. It’s super cozy, and who doesn’t love vests this season? I love them paired with boots and sweaters!

The scarf, on the other hand, has become my favorite accessory ever. It’s so warm and soft that I struggle to take it off – even once I’m safely inside. Seriously. Also, I wore it to the movies with the boy this weekend, and it served as the perfect blanket to keep me bundled up. Talk about functionality! (Side note: there are so many cool ways to wear a blanket scarf. Who knew?!)

If you’re a last-minute shopper, I highly recommend checking out Marley Lilly. Some of my other favorite items? The striped vest, the monogrammed duffle bag, and these cute running shorts! You can never go wrong with a monogramed gift!

Delight of the Day 12/04

ciate nail polish gift

It’s rare that I feature something in the beauty department, but when I saw this on Sephora, I knew I had to share. Today’s Delight of the Day is the Mini Mani Manor Advent Calendar from Ciate, $60.

I’ve loved using advent calendars since I was a kid, but, let’s be real – I don’t need another excuse to eat chocolate every day. This nail polish calendar from Ciate is perfect, because it gives you 24 new shades to rock all winter long without any calories! I also have a feeling someone on my list will be getting this as an early Christmas present ;)

Delight of the Day 11/21


I’m a huge fan of needlepoint. Seriously. I wish I were artsy enough to do it, but no such luck. Thankfully, there’s York Design Company. Their adorable cuffs are to die for. They have everything from monograms to Yorkies (I imagine this is Atticus and his girlfriend; totally normal) to anchors. (Hint: you can buy one for any girl on your list!)

The delightful ladies over there sent me the Quatrefoil Single Letter Monogram Cuff to try out, and I love it. The quality of the needlepoint work is excellent, and I love the leather liner inside. It can fit on most wrists, and it’s super comfortable. I’m taking mine on my trip and rocking it with all my summer clothes, but, depending on the pattern you pick, you can absolutely wear these with a great blazer and riding boots!

 Which one would you choose?

Winter Vacation Packing

When it comes to packing, I have a bad habit of packing waaaay too much stuff. What can I say? I like options. The Boy and I are headed to Riviera Maya soon, and I’m trying super hard to limit my suitcase to the essentials: bikinis, flip flops, sneakers (for zip lining – not working out!), dresses, a tote bag, and a few good books. What are your vacation must-haves?

Thanksgiving Day Outfit


One of the best parts of holidays is getting to dress up. I mean, spending time with family, of course. The Boy and I will actually be on vacation over Thanksgiving, but, before we made those plans, I already had an outfit picked out. I ordered these pumps last year after my trip to Europe thinking I would totally have places to wear them, but Pennsylvania’s dressy scene is a bit limited. So limited that I’ve worn them once in a year. Anyway, I’d make an outfit around them this year and include a pair of skinny khakis, a cute button down, and a sweater on top. I’d finish it with pearls and a watch for that traditional look, and gobble up! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
