This gorgeous long sleeve dress by Fevrie paired perfectly with my over-the-knee boots for a fall look. Fevrie, named after a picturesque region of Western France, is an L.A. brand that combines the cool-girl style of the city with luxe, French-inspired fabrics. The posh paisley dress I’m wearing above (and I am currently wearing for Thanksgiving lunch/dinner) is just one of the many gorgeous items they offer. This dress is now one of my favorites in my closet – it’s perfectly flowy, has the most beautiful pattern and even features pockets and darling little pom pom tassels. You can get this or anything you like at Fevrie for 25% off with code VANDIFAIR (case sensitive) now through 12/31/14.

GIFT GUIDE – UNDER $50

MUG: Kate Spade  //  NECKLACES: Moon & Lola  //  NAIL POLISH: Nailsinc  CANDLE: Voluspa  //  STUD EARRINGS: Kendra Scott  //  FINGERLESS GLOVES: Kate Spade Saturday  //  BOOK: Kate Spade  //  SWEATER: Chicnova  //  PLATE: C. Wonder  //  PHONE CASE: Theory  //  2015 CALENDAR: Rifle Paper Co  //  STATEMENT NECKLACE: Bauble Bar  //  REFLECTIVE SUNNIES: Sole Society  //  CROSSBODY BAG: Nordstrom

Thanksgiving is almost here! While I can’t wait to spend the day indulging myself into a food coma and pretending to watch football while perusing Pinterest (okay, maybe I’ll pay attention for the UT v. TCU game), I’m almost as excited for the Black Friday deals to come. After Thanksgiving, the Christmas rush begins, so to give you a bit of a head start, I put together a gift guide featuring items under $50 that are perfect for your sister, your bestie, your co-workers or as a white elephant gift. Read on to see my list of affordable gift items and why they’re foolproof for the holidays.

COFFEE MUG – a gift for any coffee drinker that will used year-round, and this is just the cutest ever (and inspires indulgence).

MONOGRAM NECKLACE – because personal gifts are just the sweetest.

NAIL POLISH – a girl can never have too many nail polishes, and it’s not something we always think about buying ourselves. I can’t wait to try this gorgeous blue shade in a gel format (which will make it last longer!)

UNIQUE BANGLE/BRACELET – because the arm party trend is here to stay, and I’m loving the malachite stones on this one.

CANDLE – who doesn’t love a yummy candle? And Voluspa candles are the yummiest – I especially love these wallet-friendly, mini versions.

STUD EARRINGS – a unique pair of stud earrings in a neutral hue will delight any recipient, and are certain to be worn time an dtime again.

GLOVES – this is another one of those things that we need during this time of year, but often don’t buy for ourselves. These pink fingerless gloves from Kate Spade Saturday are just darling.

COFFEE TABLE BOOK – tablescapes have never been so beautiful with the recent styling trend, and this Kate Spade travel book would be the perfect addition to any table.

COZY SWEATER – a cute, cozy sweater is welcome in every gal’s closet, and this one delivers on the coziness, cuteness and budget-friendly-ness.

PRETTY PLATE – with the bar cart trend, there’s even more reason to have eclectic, display-worthy dinner wear and this adorable, letter plate from C. Wonder is perfect.

PHONE CASE – because you simply can’t start 2015 without a new phone case, and how cool is this one from Theory?

CALENDAR – whether for home or for work, everyone needs a calendar around this time of year and this one is so pretty.

STATEMENT NECKLACE – A special statement necklace can truly transform an outfit and this gorgeous one from Bauble Bar is under $20!

REFLECTIVE SUNNIES – because whether on the beach or hitting the slopes, these sunnies will be vacay go-to’s.

CROSSBODY BAG – one of the best inventions ever, and this one will be a stunner come NYE.

COLORFUL BLANKET SCARF

With blanket scarves, capes, ponchos and outerwear galore, fall fashion has never been more cozy. This is one of those fall/winter seasons I wished I lived somewhere a little more north so I could indulge in this trend for more than just a few months.

When I set out to shop for the perfect blanket scarf, I knew I didn’t want to splurge, but I was so excited to find this color blocked number for a fraction of the price I was expecting to pay (and lucky for you, it’s now on sale!). There are so many ways to wear the oversized scarf trend, from wrapped up around your neck to folded and belted across one shoulder, but I love wearing it belted – poncho style. Wearing a blanket scarf this way creates a voluminous silhouette that’s a perfect pair with your favorite leggings or jeans and boots. Paired with a cross body bag (a girl can never have too many) and some sunnies, and this is the perfect look for a weekend brunch on the patio.

What’s your favorite way to rock a blanket scarf this season?

It’s certainly no secret that plaid is trending in a major way this holiday season. From oversized blanket scarves to plaid clad coffee mugs, the print is everywhere, and I can’t get enough of it! There’s something about a classic plaid or tartan print that just makes things feel more holiday, which also makes it a perfect gift for the season. For any gal on your list, a plaid scarf is an easy, hassle-free holiday gift idea. Happy holiday shopping!
