LoveLeigh Gift Guide for Her

It’s the most wonderful time of year, not only because we are so close to Christmas that I can almost taste my mom’s chocolate chip pie, but because I now have a reason to justify my outrageous shopping problem! Joy to the world. It’s gifting season.

My next few blog posts will be a series of gift guides to help you find the perfect present for everyone in your life from your little bro to you grandma.

First up are the LoveLeigh ladies in your life!

Click on any of the titles to shop!

1. OPI Infinite Shine Starter Kit

Read my post about all the reasons I love it. This is perfect for your friend that likes having nice nails, but doesn’t have time to make it to the salon every two weeks.

2. Baublebar Pinata Tassel Earrings 

These are everywhere this season and come in lots of different colors. I love the red ones for the holidays!

3. Barefoot Dreams Blanket 

This is the softest blanket on planet Earth. It’s a little pricey, but you can get it at Nordstrom Rack for half off.

4. A Groupon

Sometimes the best gift is an experience! I love giving Groupons for restaurants, fitness classes or spas I have heard my friends or family mention. It gives your loved ones an excuse to treat themselves to something new.

5. It Cosmetics Brush Set

These are my favorite brushes. The set includes a brush for powder, foundation, concealer, shadow and crease. They are soft, wash well and are high quality.

6. Kiehl’s Creme De Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter

The. Best. Lotion. Ever. It’s light, smells amazing, and is super hydrating. Grab one for your mom and one for yourself.

7. Fuzzy Slippers

Everybody needs a cozy pair of slippers. I got a super comfy pair last year (thanks, Heather) and wear them around the house 24/7. I love these ones with the pom pom accents.

8. Loopy Phone Case

I’ve had my loopy for just over two months now and haven’t dropped my phone once since putting it on. The loop on the back allows you to hold your phone even while your hands are full. It’s perfect for the clumsy gal in your life.

9. Rewined Candle

These candles come in re-purposed wine bottles and – you guessed it – smell like your favorite wine. My favorite is the Sauvignon Blanc.

10. Clinique Chubbettes Set

This set is every color of chubby stick you could ever need. 20 perfectly mini, moisturizing shades for your your bff’s collection.

I hope this gave you some gifting inspiration, or just a few new items for your own wishlist. Stay tuned for more gift guides coming soon.

Love, Leigh

RACKin’ Up the Deals

Nordstrom Rack is one of my very favorite stores to get a good deal on the brands I love. I recently downloaded the Rack app and have been finding the cutest pieces for 40-75% off.

I wanted to share some of my online shopping tips and favorite Rack items that I know you all will love.

First off, when shopping, make sure you filter by category and size. This lets you avoid shopping clothes or shoes that aren’t even available in your size. If you are looking for a specific color or brand, filtering is also helpful.

The other thing I like to do is sort the page by “best value” or “price lowest to highest”. This let’s you find the best deals and bang for your buck.

The Rack clearance section is constantly being updated so if you are looking for something specific, filter by “newest arrivals”.

What other stores do you like to shop for sales? Share your favorite finds with me on Instagram at @herloveleighlife!

Shake Your Booties

My ever-growing shoe collection reaches its prime in the fall. The flip flops I’ve been wearing for three months straight have been retired, and I’m ready to sport every shade of suede I can get my hands on.

Here are my five favorite shoes this season and a few ways I style them:

Metallic Mule

This pair is under $20 by Catherine Malandrino from TJ Maxx. You can search for this pair on Poshmark, but these are pretty much identical and are still available online and in stores.

I have been living in these! The shiny metallic paired with a dark denim is super trendy, really comfortable and dresses up anything from a plain black tee to a chunky knit sweater.

The silver compliments this gingham tank and forest green cardigan for a comfy chic look.

Short Suede Booties

These Dolce Vita ankle booties are high quality and match just about everything. I usually wear them with my favorite pair of jeans from Loft (40% off right now!), but they also pair well with a casual dress and long cardigan.

The short heel makes them very comfortable and easy to walk in. The buckle detailing on the side and neutral color have established these shoes as a regular in my wardrobe.

I snagged this poncho on sale from H&M last week and I can’t wait until it gets a little colder so I can wear it out over a long sleeve. The solid grey version is on sale right now for $12.99!

Peep Toe Booties

These are my favorite pair of the five. The chunky heel, peep toe, v-cut sides and perforated suede make for the perfect (trendy) storm. I bought them in the late spring and wore them all summer long. I couldn’t find this exact pair from Steve Madden, but these are pretty similar.

Now, they are a great transition piece from summer to fall. I like to pair them with floral embroidered jeans to feel like a rock star all day long.

Chunk Heel Peep Mules

These are under $20 and surprisingly comfortable. They also come in a dark brown that are absolutely gorgeous.

I love everything about this outfit. The heeled mules and detailed sleeves are a 2017 trend combination made in heaven.

Stylish Sneakers

Major props to my boyfriend, Scott, for gifting me these adorable DV high top sneakers. I think I have worn them every day since I got them. They are perfect for running around town, pair well with leggings or denim, and are super affordable!

I am also loving the knotted tee trend this season. I scored this one at Nordstrom Rack for $12!

I hope I gave you some fashion inspiration on this beautiful Friday. I can’t wait to shake my booty in some booties all weekend long.

Please let me know which pair or outfit was your favorite. I also want to hear what trends you’d like to see me write about or style!

You guys rock! Thank you for reading this post and for your support.

Love, Leigh
