Good Morning, everyone! I hope you all are doing well. It’s almost go-time for all things holiday! Are you getting ready? I am pretty impressed with myself (if I do say so!) that I am almost finished Christmas shopping. My mom came over on Saturday afternoon and helped me wrap gifts. My grandkids are coming in on Friday, and I have to have them wrapped, or they will sneak around and find them; plus, this week is a short one for me. I am in Austin this morning with my BFF, Heather. Today is her birthday, and we drove in yesterday for a bit of R & R and to celebrate her. Plus, we needed a break before all hell breaks loose next week (just kidding, but not!)! Anyway, today, I am showing the prettiest floral blouse plus my top gifts for the guys.


I went out to dinner with my blogger girlfriends last week and wore this exact outfit. Everyone loved this blouse, and the girls couldn’t quit commenting on it! It’s from Cinq a Sept, one of my favorite brands for the last few seasons. Cinq a Sept is such a fun brand with tons of personality. I fell in love with this satin blouse because of the color and floral print, but primarily because of the crystal trim at the collar, placket, and cuff (hard to see in the photos). It has a chic western feel to it. Cinq a Sept used the same print on a few other pieces like these two dresses (here and here) and this blouse. I paired my blouse with a cardigan (old, but a new version, here and similar in a vest here), jeans (that I love), and these great boots from a brand I love called Inez. Inez shoes are designed to regulate pressure as you walk. Their plush insoles are made of luxe suede lining and layers of the latest foam technology. Ladies, these boots and Inez shoes are so comfortable!

Okay, ladies, I had so much fun finding some great gifts for the guys! I usually think guys are hard to buy for, but I found some interesting items that I hope will give you some inspiration. I have purchased several from my list below.

Austin seems Big as Dallas Now!

When we drove into Austin a different way than usual yesterday, I was shocked at how big the downtown looked. I swear that it seems as big as Dallas now! A lot is going on here! Heather and I are off for a fun day of shopping and lunch. We are headed to our favorite spot, Tiny Boxwoods, for birthday lunch and then to another favorite tonight. I’m sure it will be zero fun!

I hope you all have a great day! Stay well and safe! xx
