Monthly Muse: DECEMBER









Happy December and happy holidays, friends! Can you believe that Christmas is three weeks away?! Holy cow, where has this year gone? I always get really excited to put together my Monthly Muse post for December because it gets me in the holiday spirit (more than I already am), and these posts are some of my favorites to do. There's so much inspiration when you look for it and put it together in a way that has your voice.

This past weekend was a slow and steady one. I got to spend some time on Sunday with my girls from My Kind of Lovely at a trunk show they hosted in Bristol. I have some fun posts coming soon with them! And I wandered around my little town scouting out spots to take blog pictures (just wait!) and snapping photos of all the holiday cheer.

Local Love: Kendra Scott Charlottesville



Hey, friends! Happy weekend! As you know, I love sharing local love and spotlighting businesses that are rooted in local communities and are known for giving back to those places - especially this time of year! Kendra Scott is one of those businesses! The brand has grown in leaps and bounds over the past several years, but their mission is still very philanthropic and local. I teamed up last year with some fellow Virginia/DC bloggers to share the opening of the Kendra Scott store in Charlottesville, and this weekend the store is celebrating their first birthday! Now is the perfect time to pick up those special pieces for the hard-to-buy-for people on your Christmas list. I can guarantee you they will love some new Kendra Scott.

If you've been following this blog or instagram for any length of time, you already know what a devoted Kendra Scott shopper and supporter that I am. Every experience I've ever had - whether it be purchasing new pieces for myself or collaborating on blog content - has been wonderful. It's one of those companies that you just want to pour love and support into. Below I've shared some looks that I've done that featured Kendra Scott pieces, and I've also shared the details of this weekend's event at the Charlottesville store. I also have a fun holiday collaboration coming up soon that you won't want to miss!

Happy weekend, happy December, and happy shopping! xo

Gift Ideas: STOCKING STUFFERS


Happy Thursday, friends! I'm back today with another gift guide which just so happens to be my favorite! I would probably be content with just a couple presents to open and an awesome stocking. My mom has always been a master at stuffing my stocking full of the best little treasures. It's always been my favorite part of Christmas morning. There's nothing better than being in your pajamas, snuggled up on the couch, digging through your stocking. Absolutely nothing.

Just a couple things to note: Those over-the-knee socks are the best and they're on sale right now! The perfume that I featured in the travel size - I get compliments on it every time I wear it. Finally, those little charm bangles are the most darling things I've found in a while - they have a full state charm collection and endless other trinkets!
