Holiday Gift Guides: Outdoorsy

All of the men in my life are outdoorsy, which actually makes it VERY hard to buy for them. (A little knows fact, most outdoorsy men are EXTREMELY picky when it comes to their belongings.) Here are some ideas for the outdoorsman in your life:

  1. Cabela’s GORE-TEX® Trailhead Jacket
  2. NRA Silhouette AR500 Steel Targets
  3. Case Yellow-handled knife
  4. Cabela’s ATV/UTV Hitch Haul™
  5. Carhartt Duck Bib Overall
  6. LED Maglite 3D Handheld Flashlight
  7. Craftsman 17600 19.2-volt C3 Cordless Reciprocating Saw

Pretty Things At Every Price: Shirtdresses

This is the last in our series of Pretty Things in the dress genre.  We are ending it with shirtdresses!

  1. Der-Women’s Belted Woven Dress-Here is one helluva a deal and a perfect fall wine color.. would be highly adorable with some tall boots. Of course when it’s not 106 degrees.
  2. Court-Speechless Women’s Striped Long Sleeve Shirtdress-So I don’t tend to gravitate towards the men’s work shirt dresses as much as I do the t-shirt dress look.  Love the simplicity and the stripes of this dress and matches great with a set of leggings.
  3. AK-Bailey Blue Junior’s Military  Long Sleeve Shirtdress-I love the neckline of this dress and I also love that it’s an empire waist! I’d definitely wear this with some chunky turquoise earrings.
  4. Sarah-Long Sleeve Military Shirtdress-This dress may be on the short side for you leggier ladies, but I think it’s totally adorable…add some tights or tall boots like Der and Court suggested and you’re ready for that transition from summer to fall!

Pretty Things At Every Price: Strapless Dresses

For the last month we featured all different kinds of purses at different price points.  For the next month we are going to feature different dresses!  First up…Strapless dresses!  Perfect for the sweltering heat of the summer!

  1. Der: Mossimo Smocked Tube Denim Dress-This denim strapless dress with the small ruffle detail is so cute! It could really be worn as a tunic length top too, so that makes it even cuter in my book.
  2. Court: Trixxi Strapless Floral Print Dress-It wasn’t just a few days after der posted some super badass dresses that I found this.  Coming in right under 30.00, I love the retro-ish look with the floral bottom.  I think it would look great dressed up or down.
  3. AK: Mossimo Women’s Strapless Dress-This dress reminds me very much of a J.Crew dress I have that I wore for a wedding.  I have it in brown, but I’m totally loving it in purple and I’m TOTALLY loving on this price.
  4. Sarah: O’Neill Country Mart Dress-Whew, this was a HARD one, but I instantly fell in love with the easiness of this dress. It’s fun, flirty, and will look good on ALL body shapes!

Random Shopping Prevails Again

Of all the places I would think I would wind up, Sears is not one of them…. unless I’m in the market for a new lawnmower or something. But, there I was browsing Sears. What I uncovered is pretty spectacular though, so there need not really be further explanation.

  1. Sears, Ruffled Neck Jacquard Dress
  2. Sears, Circle Print Sheath Dress
  3. Sears, Textured Bodice Embroidered Waist Dress
  4. Sears, Womens Glory Orange Patent Sandals
  5. Sears, Polka Dot Dress with Bottom Ruffle Tier
  6. Sears, Crochet Cleo Tank
  7. Sears, Womens Jazz Wedge
  8. Sears, Womens Flora Turquoise Sandal

Very Merry White Christmas!

For those of you who live anywhere near Central Texas, you probably experienced near blizzard conditions on Christmas Eve and a perfectly white Christmas Day, as did we! It was my first white Christmas EVER, and one that I’ll never forget. Here are a few of the goodies my husband and I picked up along the way…

sk-presents procured

  1. Lb Brewing Company Beer and T-Shirt: My mom got this for my husband and I thought it was a GREAT idea. She is from Kansas and stumbled upon this brewery on one of her excursions. His gift included this t-shirt and a gallon of their honey wheat beer…soooo good!
  2. TomTom Navigation System, Amazon: So, I guess my husband thinks I get lost a lot…?
  3. Restoration Hardware Gift Card: I LOVE this store!
  4. Vera Wang Perfume, Amazon: One smell and you’ll fall in love…
  5. Leupold Rifle Scope, This was my present to my husband, with help from my Dad, and he was excited/impressed!
  6. Chartreuse Fiestaware, I collect Fiestaware dishes and when I receive a hard to find, retired, color, it makes me smile.
  7. Old World Christmas Ornaments, I also collect Old World Christmas ornaments and my Mom ALWAYS comes through with getting me new and interesting ornaments…I couldn’t believe she found an Old World sushi roll!!!
  8. LG Front-load Washer and Dryer, Sears: So, Santa may have come a couple weeks early with this one,  but that doesn’t mean my husband didn’t remind me a bagillion times what he got me for Christmas…

I hope everyone had Happy Holidays and have a great New Year!
