I know Krystal from A Pinch Of Lovely likes to update her home with sparkly and metallic decorative objects so I picked out these gilded coasters from Calypso St. Barth for her as well as these delicious smellingelcectic-scented candles. Don’t worry, I didn’t ruin the surprise. I gave them to her as an early Christmas gift so she already knows!
Don’t forget that today is the last day to get your Calypso St. Barth gifts in time for Christmas! Hurry Hurry!
Good Morning readers, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great because I got to meet some of you who read my blog regularly. I love when you come introduce yourself because it’s so cool to see who is on the other end of the computer! I also went and saw Horrible Bosses 2, which is absolutely hilarious! I highly recommend it.
Anyway, back to this outfit! You’ll be happy to know that this beautiful camel coat is 40% OFF today with code: WINTER40! I already owned two other camel colored coats prior to receiving this one, but this luxe wool coat has quickly become my favorite because of the fit and material. I am extremely picky about wool fabric coats because I have super sensitive skin and even just the slightest discomfort will drive me crazy. So I was super happy to learn that this Lands’ End coat is a blend of virgin wool and cashmere and the inside is completely lined to keep the material from irritating your skin.
My favorite part of the coat is the button detail on the cuffs of the sleeves. I also love how the the decorative belt detail on the back gives it more of a feminine feel. I chose the camel color for this coat because it literally goes with everything and is a classic color that will last throughout time. However, the light rich red color is absolutely gorgeous if you already have a camel coat that you like. For sizing, I got the petite 4 so that I can fit thick sweaters beneath and still be able to move my arms. I definitely think this is a coat that every woman needs in her wardrobe!
Thank you to Lands’ End for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Hello again! As promised, here is my second post of the day featuring a holiday party outfit. If you’re looking to make a statement at holiday parties this season, tulle skirts are the way to go! Remember when I styled this same black tulle skirt here–> Black Friday
I know that tulle can be a little intimidating sometimes when it comes to putting the whole outfit together, but you just have to find what works best for you. I personally like to wear my tulle skirts with cropped tops or super snug tees and pointy toe pumps. However, I’ve seen plenty of women pair their tulle skirts with flats, blouses, sweaters, graphic tees and loose fitting tanks. There are so many possibilities when it comes to a full skirt. It just all depends on what you feel comfortable in.
For those of you who like make the excuse that you’re too short or tall for full midi skirts, that’s not true because I am 5’1 and Krystal is 5’9 and we both found a way to make them work! Make sure to check back later this week to see how Krystal from A Pinch of Lovelyand I styled the blush and platinum tulle skirts for a fun holiday event. I also wore my platinum tulle skirt in my magical field. Just wait until you see that! You’re going to love both the platinum and blush!
If tulle is just too much for you, I highly recommend statement jewelry or sequin pants! I’ve got two pairs of sequin pants coming for you on the blog soon, but check out these gorgeous statement pieces below!
