For the Gentlemen

Gift guide for the boys! Every year I find so much joy in sourcing gifts for the guys, and this year was no exception. Guys can be a bit tricky to shop for, which I think is why I love crafting this post so much - I'm always up for a challenge! 

The Holiday Party Edit

For all your holiday festivities this season and beyond.. 

Cin cin friends! Xx.

Dear Santa...

It is gift guide season again and this year I am starting off with a bang - I mean go big or go home, right? The above guide is comprised of highly curated & very luxe gifts - meaning, I am confident there is at least one item that would make for the perfect holiday gift this year. The above pieces are all unique & elevated,  and I'm sure will make even the hardest to shop for friends & loved ones happy.  

I would also like to point out that every year I try to create one gift guide that is highly influenced by my own personal wish list ... this one is it for this holiday season. Truth be told, all of my gift guides are crafted with things I either own & love, or would be so grateful to receive as a gift, but this one feels a little more special. I would gladly give & receive any of the beautiful above gifts! 

Happy shopping! Xx. 

It goes without saying, but if there are any special gift requests you need assistance with, please don't hesitate to reach out!

30 Things I Would Tell My 20 Year Old Self

In honor of turning thirty this week, I decided to craft a list of thirty things I would tell my twenty year old self. 

I’ve been reflecting on this past decade and on turning 30 for quite some time now. In truth, I’ve been brainstorming & creating this list for a good part of the last six months. To me, it is a beautiful summary of lessons learned, memories made, and bits & pieces of the woman I've become over the last decade. I am so proud of who I am and how far I've come over the past ten years, and I think my twenty year old self would be too. 

Baby G - it will be more beautiful than you could ever imagine. Xx.

Things of Note

Hi! This is a new style of post, but one that I think might find itself a permeant place here on Faith & Fancy. It was born out of a need and want to share all these things & ideas that are floating around in my head, and not knowing how to get them out to you all. It's basically a brain dump of new & noteworthy things that I've been meaning to share, or things that seem more urgent ... and by urgent I mean great sales that must not be missed!

If this feels unorganized and all over the place, it probably is. ha. Welcome to the inside of my mind! Nonetheless I think it's the most efficient way to get out the variety of things I think are worthy of sharing. I hope you enjoy! 

If you like this format, let me know! Already thinking of making it a more regular thing, or do I dare say, shifting it into a fun newsletter. Xx. 

Of note... 

Jenni Kayne Sale

There was a Jenni Kayne sale last week... it is sadly over, but couldn't help but share the things that caught my eye! Threw in a few that are already personal favorites too - do yourself a favor and snag this candle. You can thank me later.

Shopbop Style Event Fall '23

Alright friends, at this point you know the drill. The Shopbop sales are some of the best in the game, and in true fashion this one has some exceptional pieces. My advice is always pretty consistent when it comes to tackling these sales - in my opinion, now is the time to either stock up on basics, i.e denim, outerwear, footwear,  or it's the time to splurge on something that is a higher ticket item.

Fall Neutrals

All white looks have a special place in my summertime wardrobe, but if I’m being honest, I like them even more in the fall. To be seasonally appropriate, I tend to shift more towards cream or ecru versus crisp white & love playing with different textures to keep visual interest. There is just something so chic about dressing in all neutrals. I feel like I can take on the world! Don't you agree?

Early Fall Shoe Edit

Early fall footwear has a special place in my heart. These coming weeks are the last hoorah before we commit our feet to boots, or at the very least very closed toe shoes, for the next six months. I personally like to take this short window as an opportunity to go big or go home when it comes to styling my feet (& take it as an excuse to pick up a new pair or two!) These are a few early fall shoe styles that have been catching my eye for one last stroll around the block!

A Note on Passions

What are your passions?

It's a question that I've often been intimidated by. One that I have never felt quite confident enough to answer. Upon hearing the question, my answers slowly simmer inside - I know them, they are there - but there's a doubt keeps me quiet. A tiny voice that says, but they aren't quite big enough, or important enough, or good enough.

I was asked recently what my passions are, but was saved from answering by a swift change in the course of conversation. But it's a moment I've kept coming back to in the days following.

Pre-Fall '23

It always feels a little bit unnatural talking about fall before Labor Day weekend has come and gone, however I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel a little bit excited for what's to come. As we all know, I'm a summer girlie through and through, but as the summer starts to wane, I can start to appreciate the changes that a new season brings in.

What to Wear in the South of France

What to wear in the south of france.

Wondering what to wear in the French Riviera? Well I've got you covered. The South of France is a luxe travel destination but with its proximity to the Mediterranean there is still a breeziness to the styles worn. Think lots of linen, flowy dresses, swimwear & chic coverups, straw bags galore, and stylish sun protection.

A Note on Seasons

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately & reflecting on this idea that nothing is permanent. A very broad claim, but one that can be applied to a multitude of situations and components of life. Specifically, I've been musing over this idea that the seasons of life are ever changing, and with their shifts, we morph and change too.

For the Bride

Every year as we approach peak bridal season, I enjoy perusing the abundance of pieces that would make any bride to be swoon.

A New Favorite Candle for Spring

I am a creature of habit when it comes to candle scents - I'm a little bit picky, know what I like, and have my seasonal favorites that I rotate in & out throughout the year. However, I am not opposed to introducing something new, and when I find a new scent that I love, you can bet it's coming home with me.

In the Mood for Stripes

Stripes have forever been are a classic. They are a wardrobe staple and a pattern that offers endless versatility & possibility. I personally have always been drawn to a good stripe, and if it's a blue & white stripe, well I'm done for. I'm a total sucker for classic aesthetics.

Using the Past to Practice Gratitude for the Present

As I sipped my coffee this am, I read HWM’s piece about the gratitude prompt “remember when you wanted what you have now?” She walks us through her thoughts on the notion and has a beautiful way of explaining & properly articulating the feelings that I think many of us have. I’m not going to delve into my thoughts on it more because she does such a fantastic job doing so, and also because I think the prompt itself is very self explanatory. I will however, encourage you all to subscribe to the (free!) weekly newsletter for more thought-provoking & inspiring conversations!

Spring '23 Preview

To get myself through these last dreadful days of winter, I've put together a little sampling of all the pieces catching my eye for spring. Without fail, by this time of year, I am in the biggest wardrobe rut. Officially over winter and all the pieces that have kept me warm all season, I find myself looking forward to better weather and the shift in clothing that accompanies it. C'mon spring, we are ready for you!!

2023 To-Do List

Just typing out 2023 relaxes my shoulders and allows me to breath a sigh of relief. 2022 was a lot for me on a personal level, from start to finish really. There were beautiful moments of joy of course, but there was this overwhelming heaviness & at times paralyzing sadness. There was a lot of grief & mourning for a season of my life that unexpectedly & suddenly ended, without an ounce of warning or explanation. A big chapter closed & it took with it one of my most valued and important relationships. To say it was heartbreaking, would be the understatement of the century.
