COLOR CRUSH: MUAVE


TOP: LETOTE (on sale! I'm wearing a small) | PANTS: GAP | BOOTIES: SOLE SOCIETY, SIMILAR HERE AND HERE | BAG: HOBO | NECKLACE: STELLA & DOT | WATCH: ARVO | SUNGLASSES: SIMILAR | RINGS: GORJANA HERE AND HERE

I'm not exactly sure how to describe the color of this top.  Light mauve?  Dusty blush perhaps?  But whatever it is, I'm a fan.  The textured print of this top keeps it modern and balances out the feminine pink, and right now it's on sale!  I used to steer clear of boxy tops, but when paired with skinnies or leggings it has a slimming effect on your legs.  And who wouldn't want that?

So is it Christmas next week, or Thanksgiving?  Because I'm already feeling the pressure of the Christmas rush!  Last year I worked my buns off in November to have most of my presents bought and the house decorated by the beginning of December.  It was a bit crazy, but that allowed me to enjoy the whole month of December.  We will be watching Christmas movies and crafting our hearts out up in these parts starting December 1st and I can't wait.  And if you are anxious to get that shopping done early too, I'm busting out all of my Christmas gift guides next week, so stay tuned!

CROSSED

Top: Nordstrom (currently sold out, similar) | Skirt: me (tutorial here, similar here) | Shoes: Nordstrom | Bag: Stella & Dot | Sunglasses: Steve Madden (similar) | Watch: Arvo (similar) | Rings: Gorjana here and here | Bracelets: here and here 



I'm usually not much of a red wearer, but there is something about a red tartan print that I can't resist (like this top in red that just jumped into my cart yesterday at Target).  I made this tartan skirt last year and it just sat in my closet all Spring and Summer.  I am so excited to pull it out and incorporate it into my wardrobe again!  

Don't forget that the Leanne Barlow Free Shipping event ends tomorrow night!

DENIM ON DENIM

Blazer: Banana Republic (old, similar here and here) | Top: Sheinside | Jeans: J.Crew Factory | Heels: Nordstrom | Bag: Stella & Dot | Necklace: Baublebar c/o | Ring: Kendra Scott | Wrists: here and here

My chambray tops are one of my favorite pieces in my closet.  They work well with so many different skirts and pants.  The unexpected combo of a light chambray with a dark denim works surprisingly well!  Break it up a bit with a simple blazer and a statement necklace.

GOLD + NAVY CRAVINGS

1/2/3/4/5/6

Today is J.Crew Factory's last day of their 30% off site-wide sale (with code EXTRA30), so I quickly rounded up some of my favorites.  I really need to mix in a little something other than jeans into my everyday wardrobe, and these black velvet pants might be just the thing.  

Don't forget Nordstrom's clearance sale ends today too!  See all of my favorite picks here

And another reminder that everything over at leannebarlow.com ships for free this week!

HOMEMADE HOLIDAY GIFTS WITH TOMS FOR TARGET


I am so happy to be partnering with TOMS new line at Target (TOMS and Target...sounds like a match made in heaven).  TOMS for Target is a perfect example of giving and cultivating joy for those less fortunate.  Starting November 16th, for every Target+TOMS limited edition gift purchased, Targets is giving shoes, a blanked or meals to those in need.

Giving gifts is one of my favorite parts about this time of year.  I have been sewing Christmas presents for my mom, sisters in law, and nieces for the past few years and it is so rewarding to see them open something that I made with them in mind.  I don't sew very many presents throughout the year, but this is the one time I think is important to use my skills to give back to those that I love and put my personal designs aside.  While it can be easy to run to the store and grab a perfume, tool set, or gift certificate, I would much prefer to give (and get) a gift that has a bit more of a personal touch to it.  If you don't sew, maybe you cook, or paint, or have a special skill that you can use to give a personal and meaningful gift this season.

Today I am showing you 3 basic tutorials that can help you create a personalized gift for your loved ones.


A leopard fold-over clutch for your best friend...
 Sweater: Sheinside | Top: Front Row Shop | Jeans: Zara (sold out, similar) | Shoes: Seychelles c/o | Watch: Arvo | Bracelets: here and here | Nails: CND in Black Pool

A cute dishtowel (much cuter than any found in a store. believe me. I've looked) for your mom or mother-in-law...

And a pocket square for your stud muffin husband/boyfriend.  He doesn't wear pocket squares?  Make him.  They are awesome.

These tutorials are are pretty simple and don't take much time at all.  If you haven't given handmade gifts during the holidays before, start this year!  It will be a lot more rewarding, I promise.
