Sew Cute Holiday: My Holiday Wishlist

 



It is almost the most wonderful time of the year! Every year I kick off my gift guides with my own holiday wishlist. I love creating these each year because it kind of reflects what I'm liking each year. This year I am super into the grandmillenial craze. I've got a few home items since I just bought a hose. Then of course some clothing, accessories, and beauty items! 

With the holidays fast approaching I am encouraging everyone to shop early. Supply chain is messed up right now. Which means we can accept a lot of out of stock notifications and delayed shipping. Pick up gifts early to avoid any shortages we may have this shopping season. 

What is on your holiday wishlist? Let me know below!

OOTD: Apples to Apples

 

It's fall y'all! Apple picking is one of my favorite fall traditions. I am happy I went early in the season because this fall has escaped from me! It always goes by so quickly. With the new house and everything going on with that most of our weekends are spent working on projects vs. going out and about. But, I'm okay with that! I am so happy that I was able to take a quick trip to the apple orchard though. 


My apple picking essentials always include LL Bean boots. Walking through the grass, mud, and weeds these are key. They are super durable and can be worn in fall or winter for the snow. I've had this pair since college and they are still in amazing shape. Wear them with a thick cozy sock for extra warmth. 


I also always dress in layers when going to the apple orchard. The day we went it was so warm! So we ended up taking our sweaters off and tying them around our waist. It worked out well because I got my cute fall pictures, but then we could escape the heat a bit. 


I also love wearing fanny packs for a day at the apple orchard or the pumpkin patch. Having your hands free is so nice when you are picking apples or finding the perfect pumpkin. This fanny pack is from Stoney Clover Lane's cozy collection last fall. They haven't released a cozy collection for 2021 yet, but I think it will be coming soon! So be on the lookout for that. 



Where it's from: 
Sweater: Nordstrom 
Tee: Aerie 
Jeans: Mother (similar)
Boots: LL Bean 
Headband: Lele Sadoughi 
Location: Honey Hill Orchard in Waterman, IL 


Which do you prefer apple picking or pumpkin picking? Let me know below!

OOTD: Cute and Casual

Cute and casual! Recently I've taken any opportunity to dress up a little bit. Why yes wearing jeans is now dressing up, I don't make the rules. I wore this fun classic look for running errands around town. 

This sweater from Target is so good! Can you believe it is only $20? I've worn it a ton since picking it up. It isn't available online anymore, but check your local store to see if you can find it. I'm not sure if anyone out there is on berries and cream TikTok but this look gives me those vibes. It's the Peter Pan collar for me. 


To continue the casual look I paired the sweater with a denim rhinestone headband from Lele Sadoughi. This one isn't available anymore but I linked a similar style below! I love denim Lele headbands because you can wear them with pretty much anything. So versatile, it makes the perfect Lele Sadoughi first purchase. 


I wore my everyday bracelet stack along with my gold Tory Burch flats to round out the look. Ballet flats add a touch of classiness to the look. 


Where it's from: 
Sweater: Target (similar)
Headband: Lele Sadoughi (similar)
Sunglasses: Ray Ban 
Bracelet: Hermes
Flats: Tory Burch (similar)

What is your new go-to cute and casual look? I've been gravitating towards jeans with a transitional top or sweater recently! Let me know your go-to casual look below.

Sale of the Week: Lilly Pulitzer Sunshine Sale Picks

 

It's Lilly Pulitzer sale day! Formerly known as the After Party Sale the Lilly sale is now the Sunshine Sale. Different name, but same situation. This is the best time to buy anything Lilly. I rarely shop full price because you can get pretty much anything you want during this sale. Above I've included some of my top picks from the sale. This year I kept my order small but I am still excited for what I got. 

WHAT I GOT: 

Some of my favorite pieces were from their holiday collection last year. The one dress I really wanted was sold out, but no big deal. I used to wake up super early for this sale now I take a more relaxed approach. Currently there is no line to get into the sale so head on over to shop now! Sale runs through September 13th-14th. Happy shopping!

Sew Cute Style Nordstrom Anniversary Guide

 


MY ANNIVERSARY SALE FAVORITES

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! I've been shopping this sale since I was in elementary school. We would always go to pick out new shoes and clothes for the school year. I became more serious about the sale in middle school and high school, and now it is a staple for me! But now I have a Nordstrom card and am in control of my own purchases. Which can be dangerous. 

To be honest I wasn't super impressed with the sale this year. I try to be 100% honest on here so I wanted to say the sale isn't as great as previous years. Previously they've had a ton of amazing fall clothing pieces. This year it was very meh. I ordered a few clothing pieces to try but I will most likely return. Main things I focused on this year were beauty and workout clothing. I needed a new pair of sneakers, replenish a few beauty essentials, then get fresh pairs of Zella leggings. 

My overall strategy with the sale is to purchase a ton then return. Especially this year it seems the store availability is not great. So I recommend ordering everything online! You can always go in store to browse. But you don't have to rely on store stock for your all your items. Above I've linked all of my favorite sale finds. These are all items I either purchased or think are truly worth noting. A few major highlights: 

SUPERGOOP | Supergoop is my go-to sunscreen. This stuff is one of two brands that doesn't make me burn to a crisp. I always talk about sun protection and right now is a great time to stock up on Supergoop products! 

ZELLA | Zella is by far my favorite workout brand. Lululemon who? Save yourself some coin and pick up some Zella pieces instead. Their leggings are my favorite out there. I only buy them during the sale because the are under $40. I also own this workout top and it is perfect for the gym! Ordered it in an additional color during this sale. 

CLOUD SNEAKERS | I've never tried this brand, but I am giving this pair of sneakers a try! I've seen these all over the place and have heard good things. I will report back once I get them in. 

DRY BAR | I swear by this dry shampoo from Dry Bar. It is the only dry shampoo that I will use. My hair gets super greasy and this will extend my wash 1-2 days longer! 

BAREFOOT DREAMS | I know everyone is probably sick of hearing about Barefoot Dreams but I love their stuff! As I'm typing this I am using a Barefoot Dreams blanket. I have three scattered across the apartment. They are so warm and so comfy. I've washed them multiple times and they hold up really nice. 10/10 worth the hype. But I also recommend this lower price point blanket for a budget friendly option!

What are your must have items from the sale? Let me know below!

Sale of the Week: Gal Meets Glam Dresses IN STOCK!



GUYS this is HUGE! I found Gal Meets Glam dresses in stock and ON SALE. These are my favorite dresses for events, weddings, life, everything. I constantly get questions on if I'm selling my Gal Meets Glam pieces. My answer is always no because I will honestly be keeping these dresses long term. The quality is amazing and she is no longer selling them. So this is a hidden gem! Limited sizing is available. But there are pieces in 00, 0, 2, 10, 14, 18, and a few other sizes. Be sure to filter by size to see what is available in your size range. I wear a 00 or 0 for reference. 

Be sure to take advantage of these being in stock while you can! 


Happy shopping! Let me know if you pick up anything. I'm eyeing the pink jumpsuit and white one shoulder dress.

MAJOR SALE ALERT! The Born on Fifth collection at Dillards is all marked down right now. I picked up the eyelet puff top and babydoll dress when the collection first launched.

Graduation Gift Ideas

  

It is graduation season! Today I'm rounding up gift ideas for the graduate. I love the idea of gifting timeless pieces that can set them up for adulthood. A Barbour jacket is the perfect long term investment piece for any graduate. This Beadnell style will never go out of style. Travel items are also a great gift idea. This Stoney Clover Duffle can be customized with their initials, favorite color, and more. The possibilities are endless. Another great idea is timeless accessories that will be great for the office. A pair of classic ballet flatschic sunnies, or a sophisticated headband come to mind. 

What are your go-to grad gifts? Let me know in the comments!

Home Finds vol. 1

  


I've been super into looking at home decor recently! I'd say my style is Grandmillenial meets Midcentury Modern. Which I feel like neither of those things sound like they go together. But I promise they do! Hopefully I will get to decorate a home very soon. Until then I'm going to start sharing some more home finds with you all. So many people I know are buying houses right now. It's the perfect time to find some inspiration for your home!

How would you describe your home decor style? Let me know below.

OOTD: So this is love

So this is love.... Feeling all of the Cinderella vibes in this look!

Boxlunch sent me this adorable watch in honor of their Get Some Give Back program. If you didn't already know Boxlunch donates meals with every purchase! It's great to know that your purchase is going to a great cause. One of the reasons why I love Boxlunch. 


But for real, this watch is adorable. Growing up I loved Cinderella's mice. Gus Gus was my favorite! This watch features her mice Jac and Gus plus Cinderella twirling in her dress. Complete with a measuring tape watch strap this watch has so many adorable details. 


To channel my inner Cinderella I wore my blue Hill House nap dress. This dress is stunning. I've worn it a few times and I can't get enough of it. Let's normalize re-wearing dresses and outfits! I feel sometimes there is so much pressure for influencers and bloggers to constantly share new looks, clothing, and more. But, I'd rather have quality pieces I LOVE then pieces I wear once then re-sell. I often get asked if I'm selling certain pieces or brands. However I really don't get rid of things easily. Chances are if it is live on my feed I'm holding onto it for at least a few years.  



I completed my Cinderella look with this pair of Disney x ALDO shoes. The collection is a bit old but I'm obsessed with them. I'm so glad I got them when I did. I think they will be really fun to wear for future wedding events!



Where it's from: 
Dress: Hill House 
Shoes: Disney x ALDO (old)
Watch: *gifted* Boxlunch
Headband: Lele Sadoughi 
Bracelets: Miranda Frye, Hermes

Who is your favorite Disney princess? Let me know in the comments below!
