If there is one thing my mom has taught me, it’s to never show up empty handed. Ever. So with holiday party invitations piling up, you better start gearing up for some major hostess gift giving. Living in Texas, I am all about a good fiesta, so you can imagine my excitement when I found this little piñata ornament. But then again, I am pretty much in love with all of these gift ideas. One for you, one for me? ; )

As my sister and I have grown older our parents have focused on fewer, better gifts for the holidays. Typically we choose one or two things we really need (want) and give Santa a not-so-subtle hint in the form of list. Cuyana has the same philosophy. They’ve focused on giving fewer, better gifts this season. And what better way to tell your loved ones what you really want than with a little hint?

Milan to Madrid

Last week I was in Milan and Madrid, two cities I had never been to before. Milan may have been cold and rainy but it did not stop my from getting my all-time favorite food: gelato. I have a rule that when in Italy you must have gelato at least once a day, and you better bet I followed my own rules.

Madrid, on the other hand, had amazing weather. There were blue skies and the sun was shining, creating the perfect day to explore the Buen Retiro Park.

From rain to shine, there has been one item that has been with me through it all: my cape. I must admit, when I first bought this cape a year ago, I didn’t know if I would ever even wear it. Well, let me just tell you, capes are my new favorite! They are surprisingly warm and go with everything – day or night!

Another look from my weekend in Paris. For my last day in the city, the sun was out and the air was cool. It was the perfect atmosphere to experience such an amazing place. Around every corner there is something truly photo worthy and let me tell you, the eiffel tower did not disappoint.

 This weekend I had some free time to enjoy Paris and take in the beautiful city. My first stop: The Louvre. For a day of sightseeing and tourism, I thought black and white was the only way to go.

I must tell you, for the entire time I’ve been over here in Europe, I’ve practically lived in these Dolce Vita boots. They were a birthday gift from my sister (Thanks, Katie!) and they are literally perfect. They have a small heel to give you a little extra height but are so comfortable you can wear them for a full day of walking with no problem at all! And better yet, they are now on sale! This might sound crazy but you better bet I’m buying another pair while I still can!

Have an amazing week! xx

One of the things I love most about fall is the ability to accessorize with hats, scarves, and multiple layers! As you know, I’ve been obsessed with this burgundy Reiss hat I just purchased but as much as I love it, this black version may be the neutral I need to go with everything else.  Also, isn’t this little red bag is everything? It perfect pop of color for any night out!

Postcard from London

London, England, UK, London England, London Tourist, Hot SpotsHello from London!

I got to spend another wonderful weekend exploring the amazing city of London. I was a major tourist and hopped right up on a double-decker tour bus! It was the perfect way to see the city and learn about many of the places I had seen only in passing. And of course, I saved a little time for shopping. This hat I just couldn’t resist!

Next stop: Paris!
