Holiday Cheer

Happy Friday, loves! Holiday season is now in full swing and gift-giving is almost upon us...which means running around the shops trying to pick out the perfect present for everyone on your gift list! I've been hitting the shops (with a holiday expresso in tow) during the weekends to try and get all my holiday shopping done!
When I'm headed out to pick out presents for friends and family, I'm always in a rush heading out the door--which means I'll be throwing on my go-to cable knit turtleneck and a pair of broken in jeans. I prefer shopping in more comfortable pieces since I know I'll be heading into a lot of different stores to pick out items for everyone on my list, so I'll probably be in jeans most of the time. 
Gotta get that holiday expresso! My favorite for the season is by far is the peppermint mocha. Love that extra kick of mint in my coffee and it makes me feel extra festive. Perfect for getting into the mood of holiday shopping!
I love dressing up a casual look with some elevated accessories. I'm always slipping these pumps on because they are honestly one of the comfiest pairs of shoes I own. I know you're probably wondering, how can a pair of heels ever be comfortable? I've pretty much always been the shortest person in a room, so wearing heels has become a daily routine for me. Trust me though, you really get what you pay for when it comes to footwear and I'm reminded of that every time I wear these. I'm a big believer of investing in the classics and nude pumps are on the top of that list. The quality of leather and overall design of the heels matters a lot when determining if they'll be a good shoe for everyday wear. I've found the heels of these pumps to be just the right height (about 3.5"), without putting too much strain on my ankles. These have honestly been the only pair of pumps that my feet still feel good in after a couple hours and you can bet that I'll be going back to get these in multiple colors. 
I'm guilty of just throwing my keys, phone and wallet in a clutch when I'm headed out for holiday shopping. Just bringing my essentials saves me a lot of hassle when I'm browsing through a holiday collection. I love that a clutch is something that you can just carry easily under your arms when you're looking for a particular size or going through merchandise. Plus, with all the holiday bags you'll be carrying after your trip, it's nice to be able to just carry the clutch in one of those instead of adding to the weight by being on your shoulders. 
How's all your holiday shopping coming along? I'm still struggling to find gifts for a few individuals on my list--but stay tuned because I'll be rounding up some of the coolest finds I've come across so far in a gift guide for you guys! Happy gifting fashionistas,
