Gifting with Girl Meets Bow: The Life of the Party!

Can I get a whoop whoop for Friday?? Man oh man I'm glad to see your pretty face weekend :) What better way to celebrate this wonderful day than a brand new gift guide- this one for the "life of the party!"

We all have those friends (maybe you are the friend), you know the ones... when they are hosting they always have THE cutest set-up, perfectly prepared, and they make party planning look like a breeze! When they are in attendance at you party, they work the room, start the dance floor, and keep the champagne flowing! So, today's gift guide is in celebration of these party people and is full of my favorite gifts for the most fun ladies or gents you know! (PS- Since I'm not planning a man-specific guide this year, you can view some amazing curated gifts for your favorite fella here :) )

Happy December + My Favorite Shoes + A GIVEAWAY!

Happy December y'all! I can hardly believe that my favorite month is here and Christmas is only a few weeks away!! Although the pace of this year is flying by, I'm really trying to savor the moments of this sweet month of celebration and reflection. So I figured what better way to start the month than a super fun giveaway?!


If you've been reading here any length of time, than it's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Oka-B shoes and wear them on the regular! They are all made of high-quality, non-absorbant materials that literally wash clean (perfect for beach trips and outdoor excursions) and they are extremely comfortable. I always love that they have fun details like bows and tassels too- so cute :)

Well, I don't want to keep all this goodness to myself, so today I've teamed up with Oka-B to give away a pair of shoes to one of you my friends!! That's right, scroll to the bottom of this post and enter through the rafflecopter for your chance to win and pair of shoes from the website!

Now for a little walk (get it... ha!) through memory lane & some of my favorite Oka-B's!

Whew- we made it through Monday y'all! Coming off a holiday weekend into a full work week is not for the faint of heart! ha. 

Well on to happier things, like this festive look that's perfect for casual holiday gatherings (of which I have a TON coming!) I'm going to make a pretty bold statement... this might be one of my all-time favorite looks I've shared here on the blog! It might have something to do with the fact that when I put it on my aunt/photog said, "You look rich in that!" (insert crying/laughing emoji)- but seriously who doesn't want to look like a million bucks?! :) There is something about a fur vest that just makes me feel like it is the holiday season, and paired with the black on black tunic + pants it does lend itself to an interesting and yes, rich, pallet of colors! The only accessory you need? A Starbuck #redcup of course! ha.

Ruffles on Ruffles + The Best Cyber Monday Sales!

Ruffle Sweater: c/o SheIn // Pants: Lilly Pulitzer Travel Pants (almost sold out, these are almost exact and currently 50% off) // Booties: Target

Well y'all, I don't know about you but this Thanksgiving was such a sweet one! The older I get the more I cherish these special times with my family and I am so thankful that I get to celebrate with them. A few years ago I lived in Kansas, and coming home for holidays was difficult (& expensive!) so I really treasure the fact that I'm only about 2 hours away from my family now. Although I don't see them all the time, I'm so glad that we are always able to get together for the important stuff! 

Here's a peek at one of my looks from Thanksgiving weekend. This brown ruffle sweater is SO forgiving (which I certainly needed!) and I love the sweet ruffle details around all the edges. I do want to caution you on two things: 1) This sweater runs big (i'm in a small and it's still large on me) so size down at least one, if not two, sizes! 2) This is more of a thick wool knit than a soft sweater, so be prepared that it is a little "stiffer" than I originally expected! Just want to give y'all the low-down so you know what you're ordering :) 

How was your Thanksgiving?? Tell me all about it below!
