Shopping File: Holiday Gift Guide - 8 No-fail gift ideas that please everyone

In my opinion there are gifts that are universally appealing, gifts that make pleasing an easy task. How could you go wrong with a mug? And a scarf? Like I mentioned before, last year I received two scarves from two of my best friends and I wore them throughout the whole season. Pj's are another crowd pleaser, who doesn't love pretty and comfy sets or leggings?  I have this pair from Madewell and I always get tons of compliments when they make an appearance on Instagram, they are old but J.Crew has an identical one ;) I also love giving books, hand lotion (so practical!), and a nice candle, especially when they come in a cool jar that can later be put to a different use.

MUGS:  Coffee drinkers, tea drinkers, or non caffeine addicted people, mugs are always useful!

Outfits File: Bow Tie Blouse and Fringed Vest

Hope you all had a great weekend! I headed out to the Christmas Market on Sunday and had such a lovely afternoon! Already planning on going back, especially because I really need to get my hands on another Stollen (my favorite Holiday treat that my grandmother used to make). I have a couple of fun giveaways coming up for all of you, so stay tuned because you don't want to miss them!

Here's a look that comes straight from my Black Friday scores. I went to Banana mainly looking for this but sadly they didn't have my size, so I tried on this blouse and just when I was about to check out I caught a glimpse of this vest and had to try it on. I immediately fell in love with it and let me tell you, it goes with everything. Wear it over a blouse, with nothing underneath or as a dress, seriously, it looks great all ways and I'm sure I'll be sporting it this season to glam up my very simple looks ;)

PS: A Cyber Monday sales guide coming up shortly!
