Loving Lately and Gift Ideas

Rule #231: A black eye is the hot accessory of the season.

I have yet to do a Gift Guide for y’all this year, and honestly that probably isn’t in the cards for the ole blog I’m afraid. Instead, I thought I’d share some things I’m loving lately and also a few random gift ideas that may help with your holiday shopping (for yourself or others). If there are specific gift ideas you’re looking for though, please feel free to reach out to me! I love finding unique things for tough-to-buy-for folks!

Off the Shoulder Dress

I’ve had lots of questions about this one after posting it in my Instagram stories this weekend. I bought it a couple of years ago, and I still LOVE it! It’s comfy, lightweight, and great to dress up or down depending on the occasion. I was rockin’ my black eye that Brookie gave me as my major accessory. I’d like to thank the 5 pound of makeup I’m wearing for the fact that it’s barely noticeable!

Cozy Pajamas

I’m a bit of a pajama snob. Once I find what I like, I buy it in every color I can. These cozy pj’s are lightweight, soft as can be, and still cute! I’m wearing a medium.

PJ’s always make a great Christmas gift, in my little ole opinion. Hint, hint, Jon Boy.

Very Merry PJ’s

Can you even with all that has ever even-ed? These are the cayootest pj’s ever! I can’t wait to rock them for Santa’s big day!

SPANX Camo Faux Leather Leggings

I finally caved and bought these bad boys. Okay, maybe I bought 3 different versions of these bad boys. They suck and tuck you in, are a great quality, and bonus – they sell a petite version for my short legs! I bought a medium for all of these.

SPANX Faux Leather Leggings

I love this specific pair the most because they can be dressed up or down depending on your event.

Sequin Jumpsuit

I’m a sucker for a good jumpsuit. Especially during the holiday season when there are tons of parties to go to! It’s fun to mix it up with this style instead of a dress. This one hits in the just the right places. The sequin top is to die for, too!

Open Back Jumpsuit

I’m hoping to wear this one to Jon Boy’s company Christmas party this weekend. I love that it’s bright Christmas red, but still spaghetti strapped. Houston be hot, y’all. I love the open back, too. Just a little peek of sexy sass!

Flutter Sleeve Jumpsuit

This is runner-up for the Christmas party this weekend! I love the flutter sleeve detail and the sinching belt. And who could be mad about a jumpsuit with pockets!? I had it tailored for my short little legs.

Wrap Front Sweater

This is by far one of my favorite sweaters ever! It looks great with jeans, but I’ve also layered it with a long cami and leggings. It’s lightweight and very flattering.

Long Sleeve Tee (form-fitting)

This has become my favorite long-sleeve layering tee. It’s a great quality, form-fitting, and goes perfectly with my vests this season.

My Favorite Short-Sleeve Tee ($15)

I just ordered a few more of these bad boys because they’re on sale. It’s the perfect, basic v-neck tee for daily boppin’ around.

I’m obsessed with boyshorts to sleep in. They’re comfy and can go under my nighties. I was in dire need of new ones (the old ones were getting holy… and not in the good, get-with-God kind of way).

These are my FAVORITE EVER!

These are super comfy, too!


Natori Thongs

I used to be a solid Victoria’s Secret girl, but these have won me over. They’re on a good sale for now, too. They’re comfy, classy, and will last you a looong time!

Men’s Pajama Pants

I got Jon Boy some much needed pajama pants for Christmas (shhhhhh… let’s hope he doesn’t read this post). He’s always loved Polo’s pj’s, so I figured it was a safe bet.

Another super cute pair of pj’s for the ole Jon Boy! Shhh… it’s our secret!

Casual Sneaker

I’m always looking for ways for Jon Boy to change up his casual game. These shoes are perfect for that! They’re a little classier than traditional sneakers without being “dressy”.

That’s all for now, folks! Here’s to hoping you don’t get a black eye (literally or figuratively) this busy season!
