I’m typically completely finished with Christmas shopping at this point, but I have to admit that I’m procrastinating this year. There are so many cute gifts out there this year that I’m struggling to choose the best ones. (First world pains, I know.) If you’re slacking like I am, you’ll love this week’s posts; I’ll be sharing my favorite gifts for each person on your list. Good luck deciding!

Delight of the Day 11/16

Anthropologie mug

Last year, I swear every Basic in the world had this Limited Edition Monogram Mug from Anthropologie. I searched everywhere, but they were sold out instantly. Cue devastation. Thankfully, the people at Anthro knew what a gem they had on their hands, so they’re selling it again this year! At only $10, you can buy one for you and for each of your besties as gifts. Can’t wait to see this on everyone’s Instragram!

Delight of the Day 11/13

Lily Grace

I’m super excited to introduce you to Lily Grace. Just reading their bio, I knew you’d love them: “Lily Grace is a close-knit group of family and friends who were inspired to create a brand that embodies everything us girls love about being southern, classy, and modern. Each design was hand-drawn with our interests and personal styles in mind.” Right up your alley.

Lily Grace

The lovely ladies over there sent me the softest t-shirt with one my all-time favorite Oscar Wilde quote: “You can never be overdressed or overeducated.” The graphic is extremely well done, and the cotton is nice and thick, i.e., it’s not going to crack and pill after a few washes. Love. While it is starting to get a little cooler (read: freezing) in Pennsylvania, I’ve been finding every excuse possible to strut around town in this shirt. Added bonus? It’s oversized, so it leaves room for all those apple cider doughnuts that I can’t seem to turn down. Oops!

Lilly Grace

Priced between $30 and $38, these make great Christmas gifts for your little or your BFF. I also suggest throwing in some koozies ($5) so you can definitely own the best gift giver superlative. Good luck choosing your favorite design!

Delight of the Day 11/7

If you follow me on Twitter, you know I spent my evening last night browsing the Nordstrom Fall Clearance Sale. There were a lot of awesome steals on designer goods (I finally ordered a Burberry scarf, and my favorite Christmas present from last year is on major sale!), and there were a lot of inexpensive stocking stuffers for my friends and fam. I thought I’d share some of my favorite steals with you!

p.s. Don’t forget about the Talbots Friends & Family sale! Time to stock up on cashmere sweaters.

Delight of the Day 10/29

I must have been living under a rock, because I just realized Kate Spade is having a surprise sale! There are some really great deals that I didn’t want any of you to miss out on. I chose a few of my favorites in different price ranges. Gift giving season is right around the corner, and it’s never too early to start planning!

Delight of the Day 10/19

talbots

I mentioned a few ago that I have a new obsession with Talbots. They are quickly replacing the place in my heart that was previously reserved for J.Crew’s basics. So when I saw that they were having a sale for 30-40% off some of my favorites, I knew I had to share. I adore this Collared Breton Strip Sweater ($38.99) and this Plaid Henley ($35.99)! Scroll below to see some of my other fav steals.

Homecoming Attire

Homecoming

For the first time since I graduated (it’s been four years already – yikes!), I’m going to homecoming! I’ve considered going a few times, but bad weather and work have always gotten in the way. This year, I made a resolution to finally make my way back. I love Pittsburgh – especially in autumn. Now, I know you Southern girls are shaking your heads wondering where my sundress and bows are, but we do it a little differently up North. Mostly because it’s freezing. Find my Game Day essentials below:
