Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so I thought I would put together another handy gift guide to help with any Valentine’s shopping you might have. I’ve included ideas for both guys and girls to help shopping for moms, dads, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives or even your galentines that much easier. I’m personally the type that would prefer flowers and a date night out rather than anything but I mean I’m not going to refuse that Gucci belt either.
I hope you find this gift guide useful in shopping for your loved ones and thank you as always for stopping by!

People always say to me that pink is my signature color and that when they see anything blush or mauve pink they think of me. I absolutely love that because not only do I fill my Instagram feed with these colors, but because they are also my favorite colors and they are the colors that I feel most confident in. Do you guys have a color that you feel most confident in? I used to dress a lot in black and that is still one of my staple colors but ever since late last year I started adding more pinks into my wardrobe and it has truly brought out more confidence and happiness in my styling.
Now whenever I go shopping or into a store and I see something in a shade of pink I instantly want to buy it. Last night Bryson and I went grocery shopping and I saw cute plastic plates that were blush and I really wanted to get them for our house. Bryson wasn’t really a fan but again I was instantly drawn to them and they made me happy. January can be such a dreary month and one thing I can recommend to help bring you up is to find a color that makes you feel really happy or confident and gravitate to that more. Whatever the color is add some of that to you wardrobe or your home and I guarantee it will add a bit more happiness to your days ahead.
I recently picked up this jacket from our local Nordstrom when I grabbed the embroidered jeans from my last post and I am obsessed with it (my classic line). Dusty pink and faux shearing makes it the perfect statement jacket without being too much. I know it is currently 40% off at Nordstrom but the sizes are going quickly (shop via the images below). These boots have been a staple of mine for over a year now and if you’ve been following me you know not only do I wear them a lot but I love mixing them with pink because pink and grey is another combo I love. This bag is a new baby of mine that I got for Christmas and it has quickly become my everyday go to as the size is perfect for me and duh it’s pink.

Today I wanted to start a new series I am cleverly calling “Currently Trending” where I talk about current trends that I am loving. Todays current trend that I can see sticking around through spring and into summer is embroidery. I’ve seen embroidery on everything from shoes to bags to tops, bottoms + everything in between and I am loving it. There is something so fresh about a style with the right kind of embroidery detail and if you haven’t adopted an embroidery style into your closet yet for the spring you definitely should!
I found these Topshop embroidered jeans at my local Nordstrom and I know they will be a staple of mine for the next few months. There are a ton of other jeans out right now with embroidery detail on them in all different colors and washes (I linked a few more pairs you can check out via the images below). I also picked up this new faux leather jacket when I get these jeans last week and I am LOVING it! I wear it more than any of my other jackets right now because I have finally found the perfect faux leather that fits me well and it feels so much more expensive than it is. This one is currently 35% off and if you’re in the market for a new faux leather for spring this one is great and under $60 on sale.

If we’re being honest here, I have to admit I wear activewear about 85% of the time. Between working from home, being constantly on the go and working out daily I find it most comfortable and convenient. I put together a few looks (and linked a few more affordable styles below) of cute activewear you can wear from running errands to heading to the gym. All of these styles are under $100 and available online via the + links above or the images below.
Happy 2017 loves! Can you believe it? A whole new year already and I feel like I was just doing this post last January. Last year I did an Instagram round up post to say cya to 2015 and hello to 2016 and I thought I would follow suit today. So much has happened over the last year and I can’t help but feel grateful, blessed and ready to conquer 2017.
Some of my New Years resolutions include; being more present with my loved ones, being more grateful, working 10x’s harder on my blog and our other business including our newest business launching early this year, eating healthier, working out more, telling my family I love them more often and caring more for those around me.
After spending the last month traveling from California to Michigan and back nothing feels better than being at home with a fresh start to the new year. 2016 was amazing but I cannot wait to see what happens in 2017. Cheers to a New Year and thank you as always for stopping by, reading this and supporting me. It means the world to me to be able to have this avenue to create and share my passion for writing and styling. XO!
