The malls and boutiques are closed, but that isn't stopping me from buying some fresh, new warmer-weather clothes and shoes! Hopefully society returns to normal at some point before fall, so I'll actually be able to wear this stuff outside of the house... ha!

Comfy (but chic) Pants
It isn't good for anyone to wear pajamas all day, but stiff jeans or pants can get uncomfortable quickly when you're just hanging out at home. I invested in some chic, comfortable pants like these from Loft to take me from Netflix binge to virtual meeting to dinner prep and everything in between.
Soft, Feminine Blouses
One thing I love about spring is that a lot of brands come out with a surplus of soft, feminine blouses. I ordered a few from Loft that are incredibly comfy, but still look so flattering on.
New (short) Boots
It's too warm for my tall Hunters, and these are on sale right now for a great price at Nordstrom! I can't wait until they come in the mail. :)
Given my obsession with hiking in the spring, I had to get some new hiking boots for when we go out towards the secluded mountains to hit the trail.
Summery maxi dress
How gorgeous is this red, one-shoulder Billabong x Sincerely Jules maxi dress? I had to have it. I think it'll be perfect to wear in July or August...
For those of you who don't know, I have a part time job at J.Crew. Stores are closed right now due to the pandemic, so I'm not working, but I miss it! So I ordered several different styles of JCREW basics, like tanks and tees, for myself, some lightweight sweaters for Juan, and kids' lounge clothes for Isaiah and Nehemiah.
I love a good Lilly dress, and I love elephants, so this purchase was a no brainer.
Also, if you buy your Lilly from Nordstrom, you get free shipping and returns (no minimum), AND they offer Affirm, so you can pay for your purchases overtime with no interest.
Jack Rogers Sandals
I mean, does anything say WARM WEATHER like a shiny new pair of Jacks? I've been wearing them around the house to break them in, so they'll be perfectly ready-for-the-wearing by the time quarantine comes to an end!
I also have a pair of the Jelly Georgica Jacks. These are amazing. They are SO affordable (less than $40!), SO comfy, and still so chic... a great alternative to flip flops!
Anyone who knows me knows my love for Nordstrom. They have the most quality curated selection of brands and items. Plus, they always offer free shipping and free returns. And, if you order before December 18th, it will be there by Christmas Eve! What better place to finish off your holiday shopping list?
I know that last minute shopping can be overwhelming, so I've scoured the site to find the best gifts for everyone on your shopping list - with most of the items coming in at under $50! Check out my recommendations below; words in bold are linked for easy shopping!
For Mom or the chic granDMA
You just cannot go wrong with Anthropologie! These soy wax candles are so beautiful in appearance and scent!
The La Mer Sheet Mask
Enjoy the luxury of La Mer without spending a fortune. Their sheet masks are sold individually for only $25, or you can buy the six pack and gift one to multiple people. I'm telling you from experience, just one use is completely transformative to skin. Think of it as giving the gift of an at home facial! They're perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Anthropologie Pie Dish
I don't even bake, but this gorgeous pie dish makes me want to! Gift it to the woman in your life who makes the best goodies for a special kitchen addition.
For Your Girlfriends or Sisters
Peter Thomas Roth Mask Set
What girl doesn't love to treat herself to a little luxury at home? This mask set makes the perfect gift for your girlfriends or sisters to try out ALL of these coveted and Instafamous masks for such a steal of a price point.
Kendra Scott Birthstone Bracelet
Kendra Scott jewelry pieces are some of my favorite things to give and get! They're durable, gorgeous, and always fun.
Years ago, I vowed to throw out my ratty bedtime t-shirts and upgrade to real pajamas. With all of the comfy and gorgeous pajama sets out there, like these, I've never looked back! Easy to size and give, pajamas are a Christmas gift classic. They're a little more than $50 for the two pieces, but these leopard print Madewell ones are a dream.
Not all nail polish is created equally. These gorgeous bottles of Smith & Cult are proof of that! So many chic colors to gift!
For the men in your life
Your husband or dad, if they're anything like mine, probably wouldn't even think about looking for a cashmere sweater for themselves, but at this price, it's a must have for any man's wardrobe!
Also, check out THIS JCrew version that comes in a bit over 50 but is 40% off right now.
Portable Espresso Machine
If you know a guy who likes his coffee, but who also likes to camp/travel/explore/works outside or at job sites, this is the gift for him! It's a super sleek, take anywhere espresso machine. It's so cool!
Herschel Supply Travel Bag
This is the perfectly sized and stylish bag for guys to throw their toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, and whatever other men's grooming products they need in when packing for a trip. Otherwise, they might be tempted to just throw their toiletries loosely in a duffle with all of their clothes and whatnot!
For Anyone on your list
Plush Blanket with Fringe
You guys. This blanket is heavenly. I own two of them already. I wash them all the time, but they still look brand new years later. It comes in SO many colors- it makes the perfect gift for absolutely anyone on your list!
Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
From dads to coworkers to brothers to kids, a waterproof speaker is a fool proof gift. This one is easily portable and comes in so many cool color combinations!
Not even going to lie, I've had my eye on this for myself for a while now! It comes in a few gorgeous neutral colors, and it's unisex, so it makes a great gift for everyone.
For Little Ones
Melissa & Doug Vet Set
We love all things Melissa & Doug brand. We actually bought this vet set over the summer and it is still a most-played-with favorite in our family.
Cubcoat (cuddly toy that turns into a hoodie!)
As a mom of two and auntie to a handful of nieces and nephews, I can say that this would be a major win for littles and their parents! These transforming "cub coats" come in several different characters, from Poppy the Troll to Micky! I know Isaiah would love the Marvel Black Panther one!
Last but not least, is there anything cuter than a baby/toddler/kid in little Hunter rainboots? Nope. They're $55, but size up a bit and wear them for more than one season.
