Holiday Gift Guide.

The holidays are always a fun time to go shopping. Buying gifts for loved ones is such a great feeling. Planning out exactly what you want to find for each person, going out searching for it, and then YES! finding it! It’s always rewarding to cross peoples names off of your shopping list. This is also a good time to get in a little personal shopping as well because, well, why not!

I have put together a gift guide of some of my favorite things I have seen while shopping this holiday season. There is something for everyone on your list with a great range of pricing. I try to get one amazing gift for each person and then some small little things to go with it. It’s always fun watching your loved ones open a few things and see the smiles on their faces.

Office Vibes.

officevibecover

As many of you know, we recently relocated our office to Downtown Los Angeles. I absolutely love it here! We have an amazing open loft space with gorgeous natural light, which really inspires me. Having a new space always helps with inspiration and getting everyone back in the groove of creating. We are really lucky to have found a space that is everything we wanted and more!

My favorite thing about the new office is the massive windows. We are surrounded by the historical buildings of Los Angeles and get the BEST sunset views setting over the city every night. The natural light in here is insane! It is the perfect light for photos- which is why you have seen so many photos of me in here. I love having the windows open and hearing the hustle and bustle of the Downtown LA streets.

We are still in the process of decorating and finding the perfect pieces of furniture, but I hope you guys still get a sense of the vibes the office has with these photos. As soon as we are fully moved in and decorated I will do a full office tour!

As we all know, I am a huge lover of boots. This time of year really makes me want to excessively buy them! Booties are a key piece for every season, but when Fall comes around they are essential. They are such a versatile piece to have in your closet. You can easily pair them with just about everything you have- skinnies, boyfriend jeans, maxi dresses, leather skirts, etc.

I like to have a variety of booties in different colors on hand. Obviously, black and brown are must haves, but it is always nice to break out a great navy or olive. These colors can be styled as a neutral, which is really helpful with their versatility- especially if you have put a good chunk of change towards them. My personal fave is my Isabel Marant Dicker Bootie in tan. It is such a great tan that is so incredibly easy to wear- even if you are more of a black boot kind of girl.

Special details are another thing I look for when buying new booties. I always love a chunky zipper or some sort of metal or chain detailing. If you want to do details in a less obvious way, look for a boot with a great buckle. This still adds something a little special, but isn’t so loud and chunky.

I hope you all love my picks as much as I do. Remember booties are always a good investment, so saving for a few extra weeks to get those ones you really love will totally be worth it! xo
