Happy Tuesday, ladies! Welcome to my discussion on red, leopard and hostess gifts.
I headed out to the mall yesterday wearing a little red and leopard…one of my favorite combinations.
I even had a young sales associate in Ulta compliment my outfit!
My reason for heading over to the Shops at La Cantera was to find some gift ideas you might not find for yourself from home.
And there are plenty…but first the outfit…
RED & LEOPARD
This Epaulette-Detail Tunic was recently purchased at Chico’s during the 30% off sale…it was already on markdown…and the additional thirty took it to $23.
It is a great top for warmer weather climates. The only thing about wearing it with a scarf is that the epaulette-detail looks a little like a mistake seam at the top of one of my girls.
But, I still like it (the seam doesn’t bother me that much) with the leopard and with the walnut Roam Leggings from EQL by Kerrits...remember proceeds go to those who care for horses.
You can see how Chico’s styled the top with their scarf above.
My scarf and the shoes I am wearing have been in my wardrobe for a long time…I originally bought the infinity scarf on Amazon for $11.
It is perhaps the best $11 I ever spent…it hangs perfectly, is lightweight, and the right mix of browns. It is one of my favorite scarves.
Here are more red and leopard options…….
HOSTESS GIFT IDEAS
This was a successful seek- and- find gift trip, and I have many fun items to share…so I will be including them the rest of the week.
I like the idea of a hostess gift, but these could also be for friends, co-workers, or family. Let’s get started….
The hand creams at Williams & Sonoma were such a pleasant surprise…the aromas were magnificent and my hands kept the scent and smoothness the rest of the day.
I loved them all…maybe Cedar & Cardamom the best….so I selected the gift set to show you…I do highly recommend since my test was personal and thorough.
I also loved the aromas in the Winter Berry Collection.
The hand cream trio was a favorite.
While I did not taste this, I read the ingredients and it sounds like such a fun beverage for a holiday adult celebration.
If your hostess likes to mix cocktails, then consider gifting the North Pole Punch. They also have three more holiday cocktail mixes.
HOSTESS GIFT IDEAS AT NORDSTROM
The Ui Mug & Warmer set is lovely and comes in several colors. This would be a wonderful gift for the tea lovers on your list. My eye went right to it on the gift rack.
Panacea offers cute, fun, affordable jewelry options…some quite low, in face…put I liked what I saw with the quality for low cost jewelry.
Christmas jewelry is a great way to tell someone you are thinking of them.
Finally, I love to gift ornaments to a hostess I know loves Christmas. I will have more options for these throughout this week.
Gotta love the Stiletto Boot for your favorite fashionista!
Apparently, this lovely ornament that captured my attention is a part of the Balsam Hill Set of 25 Nordic Frost Glass Ornaments…I thought it was beautiful!
I will have more gift ideas each day this week…it is fun going out and about to see what I can find for your consideration! Tomorrow is Would You Wear It with a few gift ideas below it….see you then…
KEEP SMILING, EVERYONE
