We’re exactly a week away from the first night of Hanukkah and Christmas Eve. Can you believe it?!! Where did this year go?! Casey, Harley, and I get in to New York today and will be there until after the new year. We actually just got back from Charlotte yesterday after a super quick 48 hour trip, so it’s just been a really hectic week to say the least. I wore this outfit in the Queen City while meeting a friend for coffee and catching up on life. In case you’re new to Sunflowers and Stilettos, I lived in Charlotte for 3 wonderful years, but after Harley was a year old, I really wanted to be closer to family so forced convinced Casey to move to south Florida, where my parents and siblings are.

So anyway, before I start going on and on about things you probably could care less about, let’s chat about this look, shall we?! This is a perfect example of my everyday style. I love wearing jeans, neutral colors, light layers, and often a fun accessory or statement piece. Most of my looks are cool, casual, chic. [At least that’s what I hope they are]. Nothing too fancy or overly feminine. I enjoy playing around with different trends and once in awhile will spruce things up, but again, I’m a pretty Basic B and stick to simple pieces.

I can’t tell you how much I love this suede moto jacket from ASOS. It reminds me a lot of this really popular one so many of my friends have. The quality is great and this chocolate color is just gorgeous. I usually get tops and dresses from there, but lately they’ve been on point with their jacket and coat collection. This $46 velvet bomber is also a newbie to my closet and it’s the bomb dot com! If you’re still needing to get a gift for a special lady [or guy] in your life, definitely check and see what they’ve got! The last day for holiday delivery is 12/21.

Now on to my boots… Payless continues to surprise me with their stylish selection of affordable shoes. These zip ankle booties are actually in collaboration with American Eagle. I’m such a sucker for an exposed zipper. The low, chunky heel made it easy and comfortable as Casey and I were running [yes, legit running] through the airport to catch our flight to Charlotte Wednesday and then back home to Florida yesterday. As I said, it’s been a hectic week, haha!! Anyway, they really are the perfect everyday shoe for busy women on the go [like me] who want to be comfy while looking put together.

Last Minute Holiday Shopping

For Men: If you’re looking for a splurge item, Casey says that these headphones are the absolute best. By far better than Bose and Beets. He’s constantly on the phone for work [like all day, every day] and does a tremendous amount of traveling, so he’s a bit of a headphone snob. Below are more gift ideas:

For Women: Beauty Sets are typically a great go to gift. An awesome splurge present would be this bag. I’ve been wanting it for forever in practically every color and style they’ve come out with! It’s also the closest thing to this dream bag, that I most likely won’t get for a very long time, if ever. For your active friend, check out this jacket and pant set. I have these workout leggings and not only are they amazing, but they can definitely be worn with a dressy top or sweater for a night out. Here are some more items:

For Kids: Check out my gift guides here.
