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.

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.

Sunglasses: Ray Ban 
Bracelet: Hermes
