Bauble Blow Out

'Tis the season for all things sparkly, shiny and pretty.  I happen to be obsessed with Baublebar based out of NYC (and the social media director happens to be a Bentley alumna!).  There are so many fun, sassy pieces that would complement and add pizzazz to a holiday outfit.  Statement necklaces are easy, but also think about a great pair of earrings or bracelet to stand on their own.  Easy to pick one at these prices, and I love that there is free shipping/returns!  (when will retailers learn how enticing that cost savings is to a consumer??)  Not to mention the (free) gift boxes are a prize in and of themselves!  If you sign up your email, you also get an instant 15% off- such a winner in my book.

Here's a few of my top picks:  
 Every girl needs this classic piece.
Crystal Bloom Collar $48
 A no-brainer: great color options!
Candy Floss Gem Collar $44
Stretchable and colorful- sold!
Mirrored Triad Bud Stretch $36
L O V E these.
Crystal Sunshower Drops $36
Color is clearly the name of the game!
Cha Cha Drops $32
Aren't you inspired to dress up an outfit now??

Tartan to the Max!

So I must be on a plaid kick, because I just can't get enough of Scottish tartan plaid these days (plus the buffalo plaid I just recently posted on).  There's something uber holiday-esque about this print, and best yet- it just screams winter in New England.  I love how there are so many ways to play with the print- add army green, leopard, a statement necklace, etc.  It all works, and it all makes me get ready for the most wonderful time of the year! :)

So awesome! I recommend First Dance from Essie.
Thanks to Pinterest for this one!
Could these be any cuter?
Anthropologie $128

Yes! to this look...
Check out this scarf: $24.95
Or layer this top under an army green military jacket.
LLBean $39.95
Adorable- and made with Pendleton wool.
Etsy clutch $60
Go on- get something to add to your closet!  You won't regret it :)

Buffalo Plaid Rocks

Maybe if I were from Maine, I would feel differently about buffalo plaid.  But truly, I think it's adorable- kind of a mix between lumberjack country and New England prep school.  This time of year buffalo plaid shows up as it has a festive, holiday feel, especially in the red and black combo.  I fancy some of the alternative tones, too.  Just wear it in a classic form (don't go too far back country!)- it can look a little drab if not coupled with a great pair of jeans, for example. See if you like any of these classic options:

LLBean $24.95
Perfect fleece for a weekend trip
Joe Fresh JCP $13.99
Ready for rain?  Yep!
Target $29.99
How about a nice green version?
Gap $54.95
Most of the time you will see buffalo plaid in a flannel or fleece fabric, but find a cozy, soft version and get yourself ready for comfort!  I happen to covet a nice pair of sleep pants...
