Guest Post: Lyss Of Setting Sail

 


Merry Christmas Everyone!

I am so sorry that I haven’t been on top of my game the last few days.. I have been so busy getting ready for Christmas and everything else going on (I have an internship over winter break, so that’s been keeping me busy also!).  But, that doesn’t mean we don’t have an amazing and gorgeous guest blogger today! 

This week’s guest post is a little different that normal, though.  This week, I am so excited to present Lyss of Setting Sail Blog!  She is providing us with an amazing Christmas Day Outfit.  She is not only stunning and super sweet, but her blog is absolutely amazing! Check it out, I know you are going to love it as much as I do! But, without further ado, here is Lyss and her super cute and stylish Christmas Day Outfit!

Merry Christmas all from s e t t i n g SAIL blog! I hope that you are enjoying a wonderful holiday with lots of family and friends. If you’re still wondering what to break out of your closet for this big event, consider opting for an easy dress that you can wear comfortably and layer – especially if it’s cold where you are.  I’ve paired this chic vest/trench inspired black wrap dress with a scoop neck stripped tee and black stockings. The best part about this outfit is that you can easily customize this look. To dress is up I recommend adding some beautiful earrings (like these) and bracelets (like this and this) paired with a smart pair of knee length boots and pea coat.  For a more casual look consider wearing a sweater over the dress and pairing your outfit with some warm wool socks scrunched low to pair with a cute pair of ankle booties.

XOXO, Lyss

See guys, what did I tell ya… She’s awesome! And her blog is just as amazing.  Check it out here! I promise you’ll be so glad you did!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful day with your family and friends!

A Holiday Gift Guide From Susan of Susan Mahlburg

 

 

Hello There Lovelies!

With only five days (and four shopping days!) left until Christmas we have yet another fabulous Holiday Gift Guide from guest blogger Susan Fisher of Susan Mahlburg! After a phenomenal guest post a few weeks back, I was thrilled when I learned she was going to do a gift guide for us as well! Just a fantastic as before (maybe even more!), and stunning as ever, she has provided us with a little holiday help that did nothing but exceed any expectations I could have possibly had! So, without further ado, here is a Holiday Gift Guide from the lovely Susan of Susan Mahlburg!

A Holiday Gift Guide From Susan Of Susan Mahlburg

So what that actually means is…

1. I think the best shoes of the season are….

Kate Spade Glitter KedsI recently featured them on the blog and think it’s an easy way for even the most on-the-go ladies to add some sparkle to their steps during the holiday season.  It matches the Charm Heel, which is a KS cult favorite.

2. My favorite 2013 Holiday Gift Set is…

Nars Guy Bourdin Crime of Passion Kit.  Nars does such great collaborations, especially over the holidays (last year it was Andy Warhol).  And when they say Limited Edition, they really mean it.  Anyone would love to get Nars as a gift – they have this magical way of making sure any of their shades work with absolutely any skin tone.  It’s uncanny.  And not only is their product top-quality, the packaging is, too.

3. The hottest electronic device/gadget this year is…

The no!no! Hair Removal Gadget.  I always shied away from these things, but the more I hear about them, I just might buy one for myself.  How many times do you try to make a waxing appointment, only to find out they’re booked?  In Virginia, all the time.  Beggars can’t be choosers, so take matters into your own hands.

4. I am dying to make this gift for someone…

I am actually a huge fan of putting together gift baskets.  You can go several ways with this.  Option 1: a compilation of a bunch of favorite things.  Let’s be real: stores do cute things in miniature sizes this time of year, so why not do a bunch of things?  Option 2: the ‘event’ basket – you know the one, it’s themed for a particular activity.  She likes crafts?  Knit her a scarf but include it with a bunch of yarn, etc so she can knit her own.  She likes baking?  Bake her some cookies, but then compile all of the ingredients she would need to make another great recipe and display it in a cute Mason jar you’ve glitzed up for her.

5. Three things on my Christmas list this year are…

1) Saint-Laurent Metalic Leather Biker Jacket

2) Zac Posen Eartha Extreme Soft Top Handle

3) Prada Acetate Baroque Gradiant Sunglasses

 

 

XOXO, Susan
