Charles and a Half Leather Jacket (Similar)
J. Crew Sweater (Sale 30% off w/ code: HOLIDAY)
Cole Haan Boots (Similar)
Nixon Watch

The weather here in Iowa has been rather indecisive this fall—rain, snow, sunshine, ice—you name it we've had it. To combat the crazy weather I've invested in a few new jackets that work for whatever the weather brings. This season I think every guy needs a leather jacket, denim jacket, blazer, bomber jacket, a parka and of course a wool car coat. Stay tuned for a peek at my gift guide for the guy in your life to help make your holiday shopping a bit easier.

Dress Me Up, Dress Me Down

The holiday season is upon us which means it's time to hunt for those festive holiday looks. Is your closet ready for the holiday season? I know mine wasn't. But I know one place that could fix that without breaking the bank, Sears! 

I was super excited to team up with Sears to snag a couple party dresses for my upcoming soirees. It’s not a bad idea to have one or two backup dresses, too! And at Sears' prices, that's easy to do. I love investing in pieces that can work double duty and take me from party mode to weekend casual. I picked up this navy fit-and-flare dress that worked overtime to create multiple looks. I paired it with a statement necklace, booties and a wool coat for a work party and then toned it down a bit for running errands with my boyfriend. One of my favorite ways to rework a dress is by adding layers over it giving it the illusion of a skirt. Did you even know it was the same dress?! Tricked you! 

Not into dresses, don't fret! Try this embellished sweater that I'm crushing on with a skirt or wide-legged trousers. It's the perfect amount of bling to make your holiday sparkle. 

While Sears offers a great selection of holiday dress, they also offer great holiday gift ideas. Check out a few of my favorite picks here. But remember, it’s more than a gift. It’s the joy of the season. #MoreThanAGift.
