preppy polka dots.

sweater: Forever 21 (old, similar) // shirt: H&M // pants: Banana Republic // earrings: Stella & Dot // Bracelet: Old Navy (not available online but kinda/sorta similar) // heels: J. Crew via eBay (similar) // watch: Michael Kors

I think I own polka dot sweaters in almost every's almost as bad as my striped t-shirt collection, but not quite! Even though coral isn't typically a winter color, it's one of my favorites and what I decided to wear this crisp Tuesday morning.

Hope you're all having a great week so far...stay tuned for my next gift guide: for him!

The fourth installment in my gift guide series is perfect for anyone who loves to entertain, or really anyone who loves to mix up a cocktail at home...stock the bar cart!

I've been working on putting together my own bar cart lately, and collecting a few cute accessories to stock it with in preparation for all the holiday gatherings this month. I personally have the aqua Ikea cart above, but I included a couple of different cart options for you. Stock up with a couple of bar tools, a jigger, and a shaker, and your home bar is good to go...the only other things you need are the ingredients for your favorite cocktails recipes and friends to share!

Have a great weekend!

I seriously love each and every one of these items...from that beautiful pink velvet chair (LOVE!!!), to the adorable whale measuring cups, to the modern accent table...and I hope you will too!
