Holiday Gift Guide For Her Under $50

I thought I’d start the weekend with my first holiday gift guide of the season! I rounded up some fun gifts for the girly girl, all under $50. Some of them have time limited discount promos so check them out and get the discounts before they expire. Also, I’m planning some fun holiday giveaways really soon so make sure to follow along!

What are your favorites? Tell me!

1. Kate Spade thermal travel mug, $18 (I also love this Blah Blah Blah thermal mug at $14)
2. Ann Taylor jeweled beanie, $58 with 40% off with code FRIENDS40 (this jeweled beanie, $50 is great too)
3. MAC Red Lip Bag, $39.50. If you know someone who loves a bold, red lip this is such a fun gift idea!
4. Shopping Is My Happy Place Sweatshirt, $58 with 15% off first purchase, check out Ily Couture’s fun line of graphic tops, so many great options! I love the Pajamas All Day tee, $38 and Weekend Sweatshirt, $58

7. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, $50. This continues to be my favorite perfume!
8. Anthropologie monogram mug, $8. I have one and use it all the time!

Dressed Up Casual

I’ve probably mentioned that I’m not a huge fan of large scale animal prints so I like when it isn’t done in typical animal print colors (like the cobalt dress I wore). I love the shape of this skirt and the grey and black mix. This is something I’d wear (and have worn) to work and I’m soooo thankful I don’t have a corporate job with a strict dress code!

Metallic Tweed Top and Leather Skirt

I have a couple of family weddings coming up so I’ll be taking my mother shopping on Tuesday to hopefully find her something nice to wear. I do not need something so you guyssss do notttt let me get anything! Ha! Unless it’s on sale and really, really cute, right? 🙂 There is one thing I do want though… I’m on the hunt for a slightly longer leather skirt as this is just a tad too short for my comfort. And judging by how much I’ve worn this, it’s safe to say it’ll be a well worn and versatile addition to my wardrobe! I have a faux leather skirt (worn here) but honestly, it just doesn’t come close to  looking or feeling like my real leather skirt. So who’s giving me permission to find a new one? 🙂
Also, Nordstrom’s clearance sale is almost over and I shared some of my favorite sale items at the bottom of this post!

9 Bucket Bags In Every Price Range + Weekend Sales

My obsession with bucket bags started when I first discovered the ever elusive Mansur Gavriel  beauty. Since then, I’ve been wanting one more and more but besides for the fact that they always seem to be sold out (marketing scheme?), I rarely make big purchases like those. Since then, I’ve also fallen in love with the Saint Laurent bucket bag and then made it my mission to find some more affordable versions. So here’s a roundup of my top nine bucket bags from $49-$1950. If you want to send me a belated birthday present, the Mansur Gavriel and Saint Laurent are my favorites. 🙂 OHHH, I forgot to include the latest one I’m obsessed with! The new Gigi New York bucket bag! I’m OBSESSED as well.
What do you think about bucket bags? On your wish list or not at all? And if you do like them, which is your favorite??

 I’ve been getting more into dainty and delicate jewelry lately (I won’t give up my fun statement pieces though!) and absolutely love this pink sapphire bracelet. Nardit has a beautiful selection of jewelry in her Etsy shop and I’m wearing two favorites from her shop; the pink sapphire bracelet and a sweet charm bracelet. With the holiday season coming up, Nardit’s charm bracelets would be such a great gift and she has so many charms to choose from so that your bracelet is completely unique. To get free shipping on anything in her shop, just use code FREE14.
