Fall Style with L.L. Bean

Last week, I shared a gift guide with one of my favorite brands, L.L. Bean, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t add a few items for yourself to your cart while you’re at it? Their sweaters and flannels are those timeless items that you’ll have in your closet forever – and they’re perfect for the holidays.

More about that instant gratification? Never fear Cincinnatians, L.L. Bean just opened their first store in Cincy over at The Kenwood Collection, so you can try all these pieces on (and many more) in-person! (Head over to my L.L. Bean Gift Guide to see what else should be on your list.)

Camel Vest

For several seasons now, I’ve been dreaming of adding a camel vest to my wardrobe, but for whatever reason never pulled the trigger. Until I came across this one at a great price point.

Button-Front Mini

We officially made it through Thanksgiving [let’s be real, Black Friday // Cyber Monday]! It was pretty chilly all weekend, and now we’re back to 60 degree temps, so I just had to share this fall look that’s perfect for these warmer days.

I love that this lipstick matches this top perfectly. Sometimes I think matchy-matchy is a-OK! Though this particular look is obviously better for warmer weather, I am totes going to style this off-shoulder top with my favorite black skinny jeans and a black choker in cooler temps.

Gift Guide: L.L. Bean

As long as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of L.L. Bean. My love, as most other 90s kids, started with their monogramed backpacks in middle and high school (hence my love for a good monogram) and has only grown from there.

When they invited me out to the new store at Kenwood, I was so excited to see what the store had to offer, just in time for the holidays!

The store has SO much to offer – everything from classic clothing (like must-have flannel and a classic fisherman’s sweater) to outdoor equipment.

I’m all about investing in classics and no one does classics better than L.L. Bean. So what’s on my wish list? Check out the perfect gifts for yourself or your family and friends! (They also offer a TON of men’s clothing as well – I’m eyeing some flannel for Seth.)

Fall’s Best Mini Skirt

It’s no secret that suede and corduroy mini skirts are everywhere this season. I love the trend, but didn’t want to necessarily break the bank on something I didn’t know would be a lasting trend. So when I came across this one at Gabes, I immediately snatched it up.

I also think this look would be perfect for Thanksgiving – classic colors and comfy but on-trend which is totally my Thanksgiving MO.

Gift Guide: For the girl who has everything

Since Black Friday is in just one week (seriously, still asking how we got here) I figured it was about time to accept that the holiDAZE is upon us. So, in lieu of my normal Friday Faves posts, I’ll be posting gift guides every week, each with a different focus.

This week, I wanted to share a gift guide for the bff (or sister, or coworker…) that has everything. You know her, she’s like me, the girl who just goes out and buys what she wants rather than hint at what a great gift it would make:

Success on Stilettos gift guide 2016

headband // pink sweater // business card holder

fine-knit sweater // leopard beanie // gingham cape // camel cardigan

velvet camisole // shearling-lined booties

I love curating a gift guide that I know not only would I love, but that I know my friends would love to get, too. Happy shopping! If there are any particular gift guides you’d like to see, please let me know!

In the mean time, don’t forget to check out my latest post in the ‘What to Wear to…’ series for Thanksgiving outfit inspo!

What to Wear on Thanksgiving

Can I first start by saying, how did we get here!? Seriously, how is Thanksgiving just one week away? It feels like it was just our anniversary (Oct. 3) and now here we are on the precipice of the holiday season.

So what does one wear to Thanksgiving!? At my house, we are very casual when celebrating the holiday (my mom cooks at my parents house) so we don’t actually go anywhere. When it comes to the bird day, I like to keep it casual, but chic.

dress: Marshall’s (old, super similar here, under $30 and comes in 3 colors!) // scarf: Zara (similar here) // boots:  JustFab (similar here)

dsc_0442

I think I love this look so much because not only is it comfy (which allows you to each as much turkey as your little heart desires) but it’s also made up of fall classics; OTK boots, a swing dress and a blanket scarf. You actually cannot go wrong with this combo.

What are your Thanksgiving plans? I’d love to hear + what you plan to wear!

Oxblood off-shoulder

I came across this pretty off-shoulder top while visiting the new Gabes in Florence and despite the sheer sleeves, I knew the bordeaux color of the top would make it totally acceptable for fall.. right? Either way, I’m going for it.

Fall Florals

dsc_0032

I can’t believe I can post an outfit with a peep toe and a floral dress in November, but I can. This fall has been insanely mild, and I also didn’t want the weather to turn full-on cold (it’s imminent – please don’t make me layer-up JUST yet) without sharing this pretty floral dress.
