About the Look: This is likely a look you can easily re-create with pieces in your closet. Depending on the shoe and accessories, it's a great look for a variety of holiday activities. A monochrome look always looks chic and like you tried harder than you really did. Mixing textures, like the suede boots, knit sweater, and denim, gives it a richer feel. 
  • Coat: I am wearing a size 2 regular. It's a nice fit if you're looking for a functional coat to wear over many layers. 
  • Denim: I normally wear a 25 in denim, but they were out of the 25 in store, so I chanced it with the 24. Honestly, they are really tight but I am hoping they stretch out. It's a thick material so they really suck you in. I am liking these so far! They replaced a Forever 21 pair that I have so it's definitely a step up! 
  • Sweater: I am wearing a size small. I have this in 3 other colors and love it! 
  • Boots: I freaking love these boots! The heel shape is super chic. I can walk around for hours comfortably. 
    • Purchase: Available here. 40 percent off of your order with code CYBER40
  • Bandana: This trend is so fun right now! It's a very inexpensive one to try! Grab an old bandana and tie it around the neck or add it on a bag. I purchased a pack of 10 for $10 on Amazon.

4 Stocking Stuffers for Under $75 with Bluemercury

Nars A Womans Face

Gift Idea #1: For a Sister, Friend, Lipstick Lover
Nars makes a beautiful creamy lip set right now called 'A Woman's Face', perfect for the holiday season! The set comes in a beautiful hard case with three products, 1) A creamy liner, 2) a rich, matte lipstick and 3) a lip pencil. The red is more of a nude, than a pop, so it's great for day or night. 
  • Purchase: Available at Bluemercury (limited edition and while supplies last) in Georgetown or online here
Gift Idea #2: For the Boyfriend
The Anthony Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30 is a perfect gift for a guy in your life. It's something a guy is not going to splurge on his own, but it's super important to keep the skin looking young and healthy. It's great for winter sports lovers who will be in the sun and need to protect the face, or those who have tropical getaways planned for the holidays. At $30, it's a thoughtful and affordable gift. The body wash by Molton Brown in the black peppercorn smells spicy and almost like a craft cocktail. 
  • Purchase: The moisturizer is available via Bluemercury here and the body wash here. You can also find the bodywash here and here. The moisturizer is also available here.
Gift Idea #3: For the Hostess or Parents
It's always nice to bring a gift along to a party. My defaults are always a bottle of wine or a nice candle. These Diptyque ones smell lovely and are something special to add personality to a room. I love the way a scent can really change the ambiance and warm up a space. My favorite scent and one of the best sellers is Baies. 

  • Purchase: Available via Bluemercury here and also here.
Gift Idea #4: For You
My skin can get super dry during the holidays when I am running around in the cold and wearing more make-up on a more regular basis than my average routine. A good peel can really save your skin. I like to use these a few times a week to brighten my skin. 
  • Purchase: The m-61 Power Glow Peel is available via Bluemercury here
