Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts Under $50

One of each, please! As I was scouring the internet for this roundup, I was pleasantly surprised to see how many high-quality, amazing gifts were available for such an affordable price. The Gucci dupe belt and pom pom plaid scarf are both under $20! And OMG, can you believe that seven-compartment makeup organizer is only $38? It is certainly a must-have for any beauty lover on your holiday shopping list.

I have and LOVE the Tarte Blush Bazaar palette. It is eight of their popular Amazonian Clay blushes and two highlights all for only $44. I also own the BaubleBar tassel earrings in ivory and receive so many compliments on them. The deep red version will be perfect for the holidays. And speaking of… how fabulous would that sequined skirt be for New Year’s Eve?! Swoon! If you’re going to look that chic, shouldn’t your dog as well? I literally die for that camo puppy hoodie. You best believe I am snagging that for Molly!

Halloween with Basic Invite

It’s hard to believe Halloween is less than a week away! I am looking forward to it, but also so sad that soon trips to haunted houses, pumpkin patches, and cider mills will be behind us and we’ll be gearing up for the holidays. Jeremy and I decided to have a get together in a pinch and luckily Basic Invite had our backs.


Jeep Compass Carolina Roadtrip



Dress: Anthropologie | Earrings: BaubleBar c/o | Bangles: Kendra Scott c/o | Watch: Kate Spade c/o | Bag: Nannacay | Hat: Nordstrom | Heels: Nordstrom Rack | Sunglasses: Karen Walker (20% off with code EOTS17)

Sometimes as a blogger, you get unique and totally out of the box experiences and last Friday was just that! I had the opportunity to roadtrip to Charlotte Motor Speedway in this 2018 Jeep Compass Limited for the Charlotte Auto Fair. There, I got to trade in this particular Jeep for it’s off-road counterpart, the Trailhawk, and take it on the mobile mountain course. Talk about exhilarating! It took me back to when we’d go mudding in college. If only we had a Jeep Compass Trailhawk back then – would have saved us many a night spent towing out our old trucks!

But nothing like being at the fair to make me ready to break out this dress. It’s the perfect combination of Stevie Nicks meets the Sanderson Sisters and if that doesn’t scream fall chic, I don’t know what will! (LOL) Not only this wrap dress be worn as you see here, it can be unwrapped to create the most gorgeous duster!
