2016 Black Friday & Cyber Monday Gift Guide

Black Friday shopping has taken on a whole new meaning for me since getting married! Combining our lives together in a literal & physical sense makes me pause when shopping to make sure it's something worth the investment or a gift I know the recipient will really cherish! 

I love shopping local when I have the chance and try to make my shopping more mindful. Which means less buying just because it's on sale and more buying because it's something I've had my eye on for a while and is a great deal right now!

I've been partnering with my favorite local shopping center, Hilldale, to highlight their stores on the @lapetitefashionista instagram. Keep your eyes peeled for a highlight of my favorite picks from their holiday Luxe List!

Just in time for the holidays, I've rounded up my black friday favorites. Not just great deals (though that's always a plus), but things that won't result in buyer's remorse a few months from now!

Holiday Tartan & Velvet

I'm back with a new post and so much has happened since I wrote last! Kyle & I got married and went on our dream honeymoon. I'm also about ready to launch a new project that I'm so excited about I can hardly contain myself! So what better way to celebrate than a new outfit post?

I'm so ready for the holidays and the optimism it brings. My excitement for a cheerier time of year extends all the way to my wardrobe. I've been layering on the tartan plaid, plush velveteen, and cozy sweaters. I've been burning evergreen spruce scented candles & already dipping into the cheesy Hallmark holiday movies. I can't help it.. I needed Christmas to come early this year!

What I'm Wearing: Holiday Tartan & Velvet
Long Sleeve Tunic Top: Tobi  | Burgundy Velveteen Pants: Kohls (similar) | Tartan Scarf: Nordstrom Rack (similar) | Leopard Heels: similar | Monogram Clutch: White House Monogramming | Earrings: Happiness Boutique

This tunic top from Tobi is so ridiculously comfy. It was one of the 5 tops I brought in my carry-on for our two week honeymoon in Italy. It's fitted & slouchy in just the right places. The cozy plaid scarf is the perfect pop of pattern. I love it paired with chambray or to dress down a holiday dress. Lastly, these velveteen pants are a fun holiday hue and change from the denim that seems to be on heavy rotation this time of year.

Are you breaking out your favorite holiday pieces yet?

xoxo, lauren
