Friday Fancies

Fall Fancy

It’s Friday, and the first day of November!  Halloween has passed and Thanksgiving is around the corner, with lots of events, parties, rehearsals, and family gatherings in-between.  I have had my eye on a few staple pieces to get me through to December that would also make great holiday gifts!  And I have always said that a great gift is something you would like to get yourself, too.

1: Stella & Dot Zora Crystal Necklace // 2: Marc Jacobs “Blade” Chrono Watch // 3: Steve Madden Legacy Boots in Taupe Suede [currently on sale!]  // 4: Black and White Striped Blouse [TJ Maxx has them for under $40] // 5: Stella & Dot Pyramid Studs // 6: Stella & Dot Madison Tech Bag in Poppy


Shower Solutions

It has happened.  I have been invited to and have attended my first bridal shower.  As an inexperienced bridal shower goer, I asked many of my more experienced friends and family what I should wear and what type of gift I should buy.  Choosing an outfit was easy compared to the long, agonizing process of choosing a gift.

I am not one for registries, as I have always preferred to make or buy sentimental gifts [paintings, framed photos, hand-made cards, that sort of thing].  However, as the bridal shower date inched closer and I grappled with ideas, my list of options was growing shorter.  My solution?  World Market.

I was easily able to pick a theme [outdoor party] with all of the fun, colorful options World Market has to offer.  I ended up with a table runner with matching hand towels and threw in hand-dipped wooden salad severs.  Super cute and useful for entertaining!


The next step is always my favorite: wrapping.  Thankfully I already had some white and green wrapping paper at home, so I decided to add some turquoise raffia into the mix.

The end result: a simple, useful present and a happy bride-to-be.
