Wow, it’s the second week of November! To be honest, I’m excited that the holidays are right around the corner. Most years I’m not ready to think about Christmas until December, but in 2020, any ounce of cheer is welcome, right?
To start off this new week, here are a few things I’m loving.
Ivy City Co. Noel Plaid Dress
I found this great women-owned company through Instagram. I love the elegance and vintage-inspired charm in their dresses. They also have a matching clothing line for girls! Definitely check this company out if you’re planning family holiday photos.
The Noel Plaid Dress is the perfect fit-and-flare holiday dress. And did I mention it has pockets?
Furoshiki Gift Wrap
Furoshiki wrapping has been used in Japan since around 710 B.C. It was first used to wrap valuable treasures found in Japanese temples, but the practice has evolved over the years to include gifts, food, and even wine bottles.
Instead of using wrapping paper this year, why not try a furoshiki wrap?
They can be reused over and over and decorated with your favorite tags and accessories. I love this assorted colorful set from Anthropologie. For something more neutral and classic, try this lovely black gingham pattern from Olsenolsen Design on Etsy.

Sips By Tea Subscription Box
I’ve been really into tea lately: I’m sure it’s a combination of the weather getting colder and wanting to feel cozy at home.
I was so excited to find the tea subscription box by Sips by. For only about $1 per cup, you can sign up for a personalized box each month. Based out of Austin and women-owned, Sips by would make a perfect holiday gift for yourself or the tea drinkers on your list.
Find them on Instagram at @sipsby to explore their teas!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday. – Haileigh
