I am so excited to share all the good stuff we have coming your way in the next week! You all know how fun it is to work with your friends…well imagine how great it is to work with your friend doing something so fun, creative, and inspiring! Lexi and I had the best time putting together this shoot. We incorporated the best of her and me! What’s so fun about this collaboration is that I am learning SO much from Lexi! She is truly so inspiring and she has such an eye for things that I never even think about…like the dollar section at Target! Girlfriend has the most creative ideas and uses for things that the average person doesn’t even think about! You will find our content for the posts are similar but you will most definitely want to pop over to her site for the goods on things like the bar cart…the trees…the home decor!! So, since fashion is my jam let’s chat about these super casual, comfy looks for your laid back Christmas party! I don’t know about you but my Christmas parties are pretty casual…so a great poncho/sweater and my favorite jeans is the perfect look for me! Another great way to be laid back and put together is a colored denim like what Lexi is wearing here, paired with a super comfy sweater! Add your favorite long necklace or statement earrings and you’re looking stylish and comfy ready to eat, drink, and unwrap your night away!
Lexi and I both LOVE shopping at Sparrow boutique for unique, stylish pieces like this printed top I am wearing (which I kept). It is different and gives just the coolest holiday flare without being too “holiday” I plan to throw a fur vest over this look for an upcoming party! The Hudson jeans I am wearing are at the TOP of my wish list…girls if you are looking for high wasted goodness that pulls it all in these are it! They also make your butt look super great, score and score! You can grab them from Sparrow too!! How great is the navy/green top Lexi is wearing…again a way to be festive with color without being all red and green…
Let’s talk gifts for the guy in your life…maybe it’s your husband, your brother…your Dad! Frances Jaye has the coolest unique gifts for that guy in your life that you’re not quite sure what to buy them. You can find stocking stuffers like the Shinola notebooks…super cool and what guy can’t use something to jot his thoughts and ideas down in (ha, yeah right)! Socks are always a great add on…how about these toothpicks, bourbon flavored?!?! My husband loves these! The swell water bottles NEVER disappoint and come in a variety of colors / patterns. They hold hot and cold and they DO NOT LEAK! You can grab his and hers 🙂 One of my very favorite brands is Herschel, these bags come in an array of colors / patterns and styles. They are durable and super cool! A gold flask…why yes! Oh and don’t forget a great smelling candle…the lady in the man’s life will thank you for this smelly goodness! All of these fun gifts can be found online / in store @ Frances Jaye!!
Now onto the SUPER COOL bar cart! Girls this is all Lexi and her superb styling / entertaining goodness. I am going to leave this up to her so head on over to her blog for more on this cart that we all wish we had in our homes…I mean really, how cool!
