Happy Tuesday friends! Hope you all had a great weekend! If you follow along on my Snapchat or Instagram, you might have seen Armaan and I did a road trip to Washington D.C. this weekend. It was the first time for both of us visiting the capital, but after this trip, we’re already planning our next. We are totally in love with the whole area! Besides being gorgeous in the fall, the food, the shopping and the sights are amazing. We could have easily stayed the whole week! I’ll be doing a full post recapping our weekend since I received a lot of questions about where we stayed, ate and how we got around. We stayed at this Ritz-Carlton (which was amazing – probably one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at!) which was walking distance (about 5 blocks) to Georgetown! I’m pretty sure I need a quick detox from all the amazing food from the weekend, but it’s the holidays and I’m wearing a lot of sweaters so…it’s fine. Hah!
Speaking of holidays, I can’t believe that Christmas is only 45 days away! Gift giving is one of my favorite things to do during the holidays, and I love shopping for loved ones! New York and Company has been nailing it lately with great gifts for all the ladies on your list this holiday season! Instead of just listing all my favorites from the gift guide, I decided to style them so you could get a better idea of what they look like on! This multi-colored faux fur vest is one of the pieces from their gift guide that was giving me serious heart eyes. Gift it to your sister or cousin to stay warm but still look chic. I love that all the colors are muted but super neutral for this time of year!
This beanie is another piece that’s a serious steal and a great stocking stuffer. You can gift it alone or pair it with the matching infinity scarf or tech-friendly gloves! Side note – these gloves are actually amazing! I was wearing them all this weekend while using my phone with no problem at all. It let me type perfectly! This burgundy crossbody is a great option for putting under the tree at under $30. Try adding a fun little pouch or card case inside it with a gift card to make it a little more personal and fun!
Some other pieces I’m loving is this adorable clutch that doubles as a phone charger! I mean, have you ever seen anything cuter that is functional? Love! Also, who doesn’t need a cozy pair of pajamas or slippers to throw on? An essential gift for grandma or mom!
