Topshop slouchy bouclé sweater (mine’s a size 2; I wear this at least once a week), Nasty Gal ‘Just Enough’ midi skirt (on me it’s more of a maxi!), Jeffrey Campbell pony hair ‘Lita’ boots (same style in black leather here), Bing Bang delicate ear cuff, Bing Bang ‘Vivienne’ spike studs and Moda Luxe clutch (similar style here).

I’m also wearing a Coco&Marie hammered gold tube necklace—the perfect layering piece—which you can snag online for 20% off! with code LANAJAYNE20. I discovered this jewelry brand a few weeks back, and their delicate, minimalist (and affordable!) designs are right up my alley. I have my eye on their chic arrowhead necklace next.

Holiday Gift Guide: Hello, Gorgeous!

This week’s gift guide is all about the beauty fiend in your life. I’m an avid user of most products featured below with the exception of some special holiday gift sets. Any one of them would make for a great present or small addition to something you’re already giving.

J.Crew Calf Hair Pouch Chevron Wet Brush Moroccanoil Luminous Body Collection Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist Philosophy 'Coconut Frosting' Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath Somme Institute Holiday Set CosmoCube Posh Makeup Organizer Jenna Hipp Essential Nail & Hand Cream Set Kate Spade New York Silver Street 'Hello Sunshine' Mirror Compact Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Coquette Shiseido Benefiance 'WrinkleResist24' Pure Retinol Eye Masks Sephora Collection 'All Hands In' Deluxe Manicure Kit Deborah Lippmann 'Get Nailed' Set Bliss 'Buttah-Bling!'

I carry a small pouch in my purse with everyday makeup essentials and just snagged the calf hair clutch top right from J.Crew. It’s so luxe in person—it can double as a statement bag on its own—and it’s 30% off! right now online.

Tweezerman’s limited-edition gold tweezers are another favorite. I love the look—no surprise there—but the precision slant gets the job done with little effort like nothing else.

Lime Crime’s ‘Coquette’ lipstick bottom center is also a standout. My little sister turned me onto this brand (it’s carried at edgier websites like Nasty Gal and Urban Outfitters), and they’re famous for rich, super matte pigments. Click here to see how this nude shade shows up on an actual pout (very mod!).

Jenna Hipp’s Essential Nail & Hand Cream is something I use before bed each night (she’s a celebrity manicurist who’s collaborated with my favorite polish brand, RGB). It works wonders to soften and moisturize skin, and it strengthens my cuticles and nails. Everyone steals it, so buying a pretty set of three for a bundled price sounds just about perfect right now.

Other than that, the Somme Institute skincare regimen I raved about last month is featured middle right (you get a $298 value for $198). It rarely goes on sale, so if you’re eager to try it, I recommended snagging it during the holidays. Click here to check it out!

And as always, just click on each item directly to shop!

The Laine Boot

I’m in the market for a casual ankle boot, and J.Crew’s ‘Laine’ style below has every element I’ve searched for. That Rag & Bone model-off-duty feel? Check. The perfect balance between a pointed and rounded toe? Check. Sleek black leather with a chunky brown heel? Check. This heel’s structure is 10x cooler because it curves in a bit too.

J.Crew Laine Black Leather Ankle Boot

It doesn’t get more versatile if you’re looking for an everyday investment piece (or a great item to ask for for the holidays!). I’m a huge fan of J.Crew and Madewell shoes in general—they tend to be outrageously comfortable and wear in well—and this boot feels like walking on a cloud. It runs slightly large, so I’d recommend going a half size down.

In addition to the black leather version above, the ‘Laine’ also comes in brown leather, black suede, brown suede and a fringed style. J.Crew has a sale for 30% off your entire order online today with coupon code GIVETHIS, so click here to check them all out!

Did I mention I love this time of year?
