Holiday Must Haves: Macy’s Edition

Even though it’s 50 in Chicago today (wtf?), it’s slowly beginning to look a lot like Christmas. I’ve got Mariah Carey on repeat, I’m eating sugar cookies for breakfast and my Starbucks addiction is borderline rehab-worthy.  I don’t know about you, but I could not be more excited!

Today, I’m flying to NYC (aaa-gain) to for a project I’ve been working on with Macy’s. I’ll keep you up-to-date from behind-the-scenes via Twitter and Instagram — obvi – but in the meantime, I thought I’d kick off this year’s holiday gift guide series by sharing a few of the styles and trends I’m coveting — fittingly, all of which are available at Macy’s.

  • ARM SWAG: What is it about a new watch? Embrace a new attitude with these on-trend arm party pieces.

  • BEAUTY BASICS: Keeping my skin fresh and glowing can be a challenge for frequent fliers like myself. Here’s a few little (beauty) luxuries I’m hoping to get (and will be giving) this season.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfumePhilosophy Microdermabrasion kit (best post-flight at-home facials),  Clarisonic mini
  • FAUX FUR: My favorite (and arguably the most fashionably) way to stay cozy.

  • PARTY SHOES: Getting party-perfect is as easy as slipping on a pair of embellished pumps, in my opinion.

  •  LEATHER ACCENTS: Because what girl doesn’t love a little leather? (Faux is great, too!)

Charter Club cashmere-lined leather gloves (!), Coach duffle bag, INC riding boots

How ’bout you? Is Macy’s your go-to for any gift-giving this season? Let me know — I’ll see you in New York!

  1. For me Macy’s & Christmas go hand in hand! I always make sure to get one visit into their Herald Square store to see the decorations :)

    I’m hoping for some faux fur under the tree for myself this year.


  2. The black on black Fossil watch screams! I love it. Very masculine & take charge, you could totally rock it. I haven’t seen that watch yet so thanks for posting- great picks.

  3. My Starbucks addiction is borderline rehab worthy too! Those red cups just bring you in :)! I really want those sparkly heels-have fun in NYC! I’m so jealous, I’ve never even been there and you get to go quite often!! :)
