Gift Guide: Home Goodies

Candle, Pitcher, Blanket, Stapler, Hot Cocoa, Pineapple Decor, Brew Book, Mug/Sock Set

Happy Friday loves! Hope y'all had a great week and have some fun weekend plans ahead. This week felt SO incredibly long so I am feeling so grateful the weekend is almost here. We actually are going to have another busy weekend ahead with wedding planning. We're going to meet with our officiant and then Sunday is our big menu tasting event at our venue. I'm so excited to try all the yummy menu items and especially the cocktails! My parents are tagging along with Steven and I so it'll be nice to get their input. 

The more gift guides I put together, the bigger my wish list gets! I seriously want EVERYTHING from this guide. We actually registered for the Pottery Barn pitcher and matching mugs so I'm hoping that we will receive that as a gift for the wedding. Also, how adorable is the "Cozy Socks & Mug Set?" I feel like this is SUCH a perfect gift for anyone. It's just the epitome of coziness in a box. I also think this Brew book looks really cool and would be a great coffee table addition for anyone!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

My Favorite Coat + Fashion Frenzy Link-Up!

Coat: J. Crew Factory, Dress: BP (less than $35!!), Booties: Vince Camuto, Tote: Tory Burch, Sunnies: Ray-Ban
Happy Wednesday darlings! These pictures are so special because they were taken at the marina our wedding venue sits on! One thing I love so much about our venue is that on one side is this GORGEOUS marina and on the other side it overlooks the beautiful bay and the Bay Bridge. It's just view goals pretty much!

All the key items I'm wearing (coat, dress and booties) are currently marked down for a GREAT price! I think y'all need this coat AND this dress in your life. If you're looking for the perfect neutral coat for winter, this is my favorite that I've ever owned! It fits SO well, it has a GORGEOUS light blue pinstripe lining on the inside and it's such a classic silhouette. I love all J. Crew coats but I think this one is the most timeless. Also, if you're like me and you love wearing dresses into fall and winter, this black midi dress is a closet staple. It's an awesome length and it actually has a gorgeous criss-cross detail on the back that just adds a little something! It's also a great price-point.

Jumping into the link-up! I wanted to mention that at the start of the new year, we are looking for co-hosts for the link-up so if y'all are interesting in co-hosting you can shoot me an email at rosyoutlookblog@gmail.com. [Also linking up with The Blended Blog and Trend Spin]

The Coziest Cardi EVER

Sweater: Anthropologie, Tee: J. Crew, Jeans: Paige Denim, Booties: Vince Camuto
Happy Monday loves! Hope you had an awesome weekend. Mine was the busiest I've had in a while!  I don't think we got more than 2 hours to just sit around and relax! Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston, Layers & Lipstick, Style Elixir, and Trend Spin for today's post .Saturday morning was our cake tasting and it went SO well. We are going to be doing a cake and tiers of cupcakes! Because we loved so many of the flavors we ended up with 3--for the cake we're doing vanilla cake with fresh strawberries at the center and buttercream frosting, for the cupcakes we did half of them red velvet with cream cheese frosting and the other half are spice cake with white chocolate buttercream frosting. Their red velvet/cream cheese frosting was out of this world! Saturday night, we had our neighbors over to watch the Clemson game then Sunday, I met up with my MOH for lunch and shopping! Super fun weekend but I'm so exhausted.

When I saw this cardigan at Anthropologie, I fell in LOVE. I just thought it was such a cool and different piece and I LOVE the faux fur collar. It's so perfect for this time of year where it's a little too warm for a big coat but too cold for a light sweater. This is definitely heavy material and the duster length makes it that much more cozy! Looking at these pictures I already miss the beach so much!

Gift Guide: For the Fitness Lover (Him & Her)

Patagonia for Her, Patagonia for Him, Nike Sneakers, UA Sneakers, Fitbit, Yeti Bottle, Zella Leggings, Poverty Flats Backpack, Resistance Bands, Bose Headphones
Happy Friday loves! Hope your week was a good one and you have some fun weekend plans ahead. This week was definitely just as busy as the last few have been at work so I'm pretty happy Friday has finally arrived. This month we have a few exciting wedding items lined up! This Saturday, we have our cake tasting which is out on the Eastern Shore near our venue. I think this might be one of the only wedding tasks Steven is really excited about! Next Sunday, they host a huge tasting event at our venue because there are SO many weddings throughout the year. Instead of doing individual tastings, you get tickets for this big event and get to go try out all the new menu items for 2017. Once the meals have been selected, I'm going to be ordering the invites. All exciting things!

As you guys know, I have been way more into fitness especially with the wedding coming up and now that we are less than 5 months away (and only 2 months from my first dress fitting) it is definitely crunch time. I'm hoping to FINALLY start doing more fitness and recipe posts these next few months.

These gift ideas are pretty much ALL things that I have on my wish list. The Patagonia sweater has been on my list for a while and I think it will look so cute over my work-out clothes. Also, I have an awesome gym bag BUT I would love to get a backpack like this one too because it's way easier carrying my gym clothes to work in a backpack! I also shared a pair of women's Nike sneakers that I already have and they are my new FAVORITES. I got them last time I was in NYC and I'm obsessed. One huge reason I like them is because they actually look REALLY cute with jeans too if you just want to wear them to run errands or when you're traveling. Also, Steven prefers Under Armour sneakers so I wanted to share his favorite pair as well for the guy in your life.

Hope this gave you some inspiration for the fitness lovers in your life! Have an awesome weekend!!

Boho at the Beach + Cyber Monday Sales!

Sweater: Free People (also here)--on SALE, Turtleneck: Target, Jeans: Topshop, Hat: J. Crew, Booties: Vince Camuto
Happy Monday loves! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend and were able to spend time with your loved ones. Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston, Lauren M for Mix It Mondays , Style Elixir, and Trend Spin for today's post! Our weekend in Corolla was beyond relaxing and MUCH needed. I was working 12 hour days the week leading up to my time off so it was so great to just detox and spend time with family. The weather was actually pretty nice most of the time and we were able to go on long walks and let Toby run and swim! We did a little bit of outlet shopping but we pretty much just stayed around the house and the beach!

If y'all can get your hands on this sweater while it's on sale, I highly recommend it. I linked to it via two different websites because I do see that the sizes are selling out quickly! It's also 2 different prices. It is the PERFECT fall cardigan and is cozy enough to take you through winter too. I love that it's neutral and goes with almost any outfit.

Since I didn't do a Black Friday post, I wanted to share some of my favorite Cyber Monday sales with y'all because they're pretty awesome this year!

Styling a Dress for Fall + Fashion Frenzy Link-Up!

Dress: Madewell (on sale!), Hat: Nordstrom (old, similar here), Booties: Vince Camuto
Happy Wednesday loves! How excited are you that Thanksgiving is tomorrow?! I have a bunch of stuff to wrap up at work before we leave for the Outer Banks at lunchtime. I can't wait to share pictures from the beach! Even though it's going to be a little chilly, it's always so gorgeous to photograph! I'm going to be totally honest--I'm not a good cook at ALL but I really want to contribute something yummy to Thanksgiving dinner this year. If you guys have any suggestions for easy but good recipes I would love to hear!

This dress would actually be perfect for Thanksgiving especially if you live somewhere a little warmer. The temperature dropped about 30 degrees here in VA from the time I took these photos so I would definitely have to pair some tights and a coat over top if I was going to wear this dress in this weather!

I'm going to be missing Friday's post so I can totally soak up the time off and enjoy my family but I hope y'all have an AWESOME Thanksgiving! Make sure to join our link-up today and I'll see you guys Monday!
