I had to pull my hair back midway through shooting this post because it was so windy my face kept getting covered (#eastcoastbloggerproblems). It was a full-blown Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz dilemma. But, one of my favorite new ways to wear it is in a deep side part with the opposite side pinned behind my ear. I just think it’s a little edgy and interesting. It’s also a great way to show off the Bing Bang delicate ear cuff I can’t seem to stop wearing (it makes it look like I have three cartilage piercings when I want to feel punky).

This grey 525 America sweater is one of my favorite pieces for fall. It’s soft, has the perfect high-low cut and the billowy sleeves are flattering. If you’re searching for a cropped knit to wear all day every day, trust me, this is it.

525 America sweater (same style in black on sale!I’m wearing a size medium), Zara high-waisted scuba skirt (similar style here), Aerosoles loafer (similar style here), Michael Kors ‘Selma’ studded tote (smaller version here), Bing Bang delicate ear cuff (a must-have in my book!), ‘Vivienne’ spike studs, ‘Wishbone’ ring, ‘Tiny Baguette’ crystal ring and ‘Geometric’ ring set (stacked on my middle finger).

‘Tis the season babes! The time for holiday gift guides has come, and in addition to my Friday ‘What I Want’ collage (a weekly wish list of items I’m coveting), I’ll be releasing a themed holiday gift guide every Wednesday from now until the new year!

Today’s focus is the minimalist in your life. The girl who would jump for joy at the sight of the black leather converse sneakers bottom right (like I did). This edit has my name written all over it from the neutral cropped turtleneck (only $34.95!) to the Illesteva clear sunnies with contrasting tortoise arms (such a chic combination).

As always, just click on each item directly to shop. And if you have requests for a particular gift guide theme—what to get your guy, the homebody in your life, your beauty-obsessed best friend, etc.—sound off in the comments section below. I’m open to ideas based on anything you guys want to see!
