I've been making a conscious effort to take more photos of my outfits lately (though it's getting harder now that it gets dark so early), and I figured I'd share some with you! Some of the items in the photos are from past seasons, but I'll link what I can at the bottom of this post. If you're looking for inspiration, make sure you also check out the "My Closet" and "My Style" sections of the site - where I link my favorite things and share outfit photos. Happy outfit making!
PS- Thank you to my supportive boyfriend, Adam, for being the source of all these smiles as the man behind the camera!

'Tis the season to be shopping... fa la la la la la la la la!
Okay guys... it is officially December, which means we are all scrambling to think of thoughtful presents for everyone on our list! Some people are easier than others, so I thought I'd compile a little collection of ideas to get your gift-giving juices flowing. Happy shopping, and remember to take some time to breathe and enjoy what you have this holiday season!
An "Adventure Blanket" from Tribe + True
This place has my favorite outdoor blankets! They are absolutely gorgeous and such amazing quality (handwoven by Mexican artisans). I gifted this fish style to my boyfriend a few years ago and we use it constantly for picnics and concerts in the park. It's a piece that will last for years and years -- perfect for the outdoorsy hipster, camping fanatic, or picnic lover in your life.
Blankets range in price from $50-$70, click HERE to shop
An electric toothbrush from Quip
I have been wanting to switch to an electric toothbrush for a while now and I've heard amazing things about Quip! It helps you brush for the recommended amount of time and vibrates to remind you when to switch sides of your mouth. Plus, you get fresh brush heads delivered every three months. Also, it's just super sleek and cute! This is a great gift for the person who appreciates product design and fun gadgets, or that someone who is super into oral hygiene.

A "Hygge" Necessities Kit
Hygge is a relatively new/trendy term in the US lately, but it's basically the Danish word for coziness, comfort and contentment with loved ones. To give the gift of hygge, just put together a gift basket with everything they'll need to enjoy winter hibernation.... cozy socks, The Hygge board game, a delicious scented candle, fancy tea or cocoa (and a cute mug to enjoy it in), a warm fleece blanket, and The Little Book of Hygge. It's a no brainer everyone will love!
An essential oil diffuser and starter oils from Rocky Mountain Oils
There's something so cozy in the wintertime about turning on your diffuser full of relaxing oils and then curling up in bed with a book or movie. Essential oil diffusers make your home smell good (without the worry or smoke of a candle) and they are so calming! Gift someone a diffuser (like this) and a selection of oils to get them started. I'd recommend Lavender, Grapefruit, Sacred Immune Strength, and Eucalyptus as starter oils!
