I know it seems crazy, but guys, the holiday season is JUST about here! Eeek! Seriously, wasn’t it spring just yesterday?! I can’t get over how fast the months fly by! How soon do you start your Christmas shopping each year? Are you an early bird that can’t wait to start or do you rely heavily on Amazon next day shipping on December 23rd? Ha!

I wanted to start a little earlier this year with letting you guys know about some great gift ideas. I know for me, as soon as fall hits, whenever I see or think of a great gift option for those on my Christmas list, I jot them down or save them immediately on my phone to refer back to as I really get going on it! So be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post for a great gift idea for the ladies on your list!

I’ve teamed up with Vera Bradley today to share this VERY on trend red leather satchel that is perfect now and definitely into the holiday season! If you haven’t heard or seen lately, red is THE color of the season right now. While I love neutrals in the cooler months, it is really nice to see these pops of vibrant cherry hues in fashion right now!

I really wanted the red to be the exclamation point on this look, so I kept it classic with a sleek black and white look, complete with my favorite pants of the moment. Honestly, though, while I would wear this look to any upper casual event, I really love this as a work wear option. (You can skip the hat if that feels too over the top for your work setting. I’ve just become such a hat girl the past year! Ha!)

So, Vera Bradley began adding in sleek leather pieces into their collections the past few years and I could not be more of a fan of them. The 100% genuine leather accessories are so timeless and work with so much in my closet. I really appreciate all the beautifully done interior pockets to help keep all my necessities organized. You’ll definitely be seeing me style this bag throughout the season here on the blog!

Get a head start!

Something else perfect for the holiday season ahead are these ridiculously comfortable pajama tops and pants! I can just already envision myself cuddled up on the sofa watching all the classic Christmas movies in them with the family! While I’ll be keeping a pair for myself, I’ll also be wrapping up and gifting a few pairs to close friends and family! They are so great for any moms, friends or teenagers on your holiday list this year! They come in a few different prints and colorways. The fun little penguins are my favorite!

So why not go ahead and start checking off your gift list a little early this year? Come mid December you’ll be sipping on hot cocoa, relaxing in front of the fire while everyone else is stressing over whether their last minute gifts will get shipped in time!
