Inspiration: All That Glitters

It’s the holiday season. I’ve finally come to accept it which means it’s time to prepare for all the holidays bring with them – gift giving, parties, events, family gatherings and even a little traveling.

One of my favorite parts of the holidays is getting dolled up for holiday parties. Sometimes we even try to get a little fancy for Christmas dinner … sometimes. So to get in the right mindset for the season of sparkle, I’ve pulled together a little inspiration to help you shop your own closet, a friends’ or before you hit up the mall.

I’ve even included a few sparkly gift ideas at the end because I just couldn’t help myself.

Shopping: TOMS for Target

Confession: I definitely haven’t made my holiday shopping gift list … yet. I can’t seem to get my gift giving act together until the week of Thanksgiving.

But since I got the opportunity to talk about this TOMSforTarget collection, I did a little late night Target run yesterday (went for ONE THING, left with two bags and less money in my bank account) and found myself mentally making a list. Those glass water bottles would be a great co-worker gift, that candle is a perfect hostess present and that crazy comfy little boys tee may be going in D3’s stocking. I’m also pretty obsessed with the leather and canvas pouches which are great under $20 gifts for friends.

The best part about the whole collection is that in the spirit of the TOMS brand, when you purchase an item, they will give a pair of shoes, a blanket or a meal to someone in need. Definitely something that helps get you really in the Christmas giving spirit. So buy a couple gifts for friends – my picks below – and then get in the spirit of giving yourself and pick a charity to support this holiday season. I’m a huge fan of volunteering with The Salvation Army’s efforts but there are so many ways you can help those in need this time of year. It only takes a little of your time to make a big difference.

Not that you really care but on my little shopping excursion, I hunted endlessly for the poncho to no avail. I did end up taking home a couple water bottles, the arrow pouch, this men’s anorak (such a great buy) and this sweater. Yes, I may have splurged a little but knowing that my over-spending at Target habits went a little farther this time did soften the blow.

Toms For Target: One-for-One. For All. Starting November 16th, for every Target+Toms limited edition gift you buy, we’re (Target) giving shoes, a blanket or meals to those in need. #TomsForTarget

Working on a real post for today but had to share some quick picks from a sale that’s too good to pass up. Anthropologie is having a  25% off sale on all dresses and jewelry right now. Woo Woo!

Head over to snag a couple key pieces to get you through the holiday party season. Here’s some of my favorites.
