My Kind of Lovely Holiday Lookbook


As promised last week, here’s a few of my favorite snaps from our My Kind of Lovely Christmas lookbook! {You can see the full lookbook here} We had such a fun time putting everything together and our models were the best! We’re also extremely lucky to have such talented people to assist us! BFF, Alexandra Hansen, came up with the vision and styled the shoot and my mom, Tammy Lee, did the photos.

I also shared some of our best gift ideas from My Kind of Lovely on the news this morning! {You can watch the segment here}

Holiday Happenings: Christmas Party

Sometimes a holiday party calls for a simple, comfortable, LBD, am I right? I love putting  together the cutest out-of-the-box holiday outfits but sometimes, simple and elegant wins. And I just love that the polka dot overlay of this otherwise basic shift dress totally takes it up a notch! Perfect for holiday parties and beyond!

Confession time: I love a cheap winter coat. For some reason this one and my Forever 21 leopard coats are always my go-to when I’m grabbing one to just run around in. I know it’s important to have nice coats but for some reason I love these cheap, trendy ones for everyday. I don’t feel bad when I rip the lining (fat guy in a little coaatt) and they’re typically lighter weight so you don’t immediately start sweating when you walk indoors. Both important things, right?

I got this mint one at the end of winter last year and it’s unfortunately unavailable but Old Navy has an adorable similar one for under $70!

Heart Happy Vol. 6

I swear every week I have great intentions to get on top of things for the blog and I feel like with all this “extra time” I should be able to get on a steady 5 days a week posting schedule but alas I find myself grasping for air and not finding the time now more than ever! One of these days I’ll get on top of things right?!

Friday majorly snuck up on me this week but for today’s heart happy-s I’m pretty happy about a really productive week at the shop! Last night as I was trying to remember all that’s happened this week I realized I never shared any photos from our My Kind of Lovely Holiday Lookbook here on the blog! So I’m sharing a little peek today and will dedicate a post to it next week! They’re pretty much too good not to share!

I also have been so full into holiday mode at the shop that I have done ZERO personal Christmas shopping! I haven’t purchased the first Christmas gift and have nothing picked out for myself! (Sorry, mom!) Unfortunately in my family I have way more boys than girls to buy for so the boys are my problem area. (Because, hello, I have a shop full of cute things for girls!) If you know of anyone who has some really good gift guides for the impossible boy send em my way!

There are a few noteworthy sales going on right now though. I’m hoping to be able to knock most of my Christmas shopping out in a few online purchases.

I’m hoping that between Urban Outfitters and J.Crew Factory I can find some good guy stuff? If not there’s always the Nordstrom gift guide for men! Crosses fingers…

Happy Friday! And Happy Shopping!
