Holiday Gift Guide for the Sophisticated Woman

I was thrilled when Ann Taylor came to me with this partnership. I’ve heard of the brand before and I adored their style for the working or sophisticated woman. While at the Ann Taylor store located in Rampart Commons, I picked up the shimmer plaid scarf and spotted mock neck sweater for myself. 

If you know me, I am in LOVE with leopard print! I couldn’t pass this sweater up! Scarves are a great accessory to tie an outfit together, I love them as much as I love watches so I also couldn’t put down the shimmer plaid scarf. Living in Las Vegas, I knew I wanted something neutral and light for the windy days and cold weather. I love that I can also rock this scarf during the spring when the weather warms up as it’s not a heavy fabric! 

While shopping online for Christmas gifts, I picked up the earring studs and sunglasses. I knew the people these gifts are going to would love them so I couldn’t let them go as my shopping was done last minute. I’m still not done, by the way! 

Last minute gifts for anyone

There are a couple of gifts that I didn’t list in the Pinterest graphic. This Capri Blue Aloha Orchid candle is another gift I purchased. I’m a big candle fan and this one I feel I should keep for myself lol. Don’t worry, I won’t! Another purchase for this candle will be made though! I can’t get over the smell! 

The Organic earrings I keep coming back to! Aren’t they amazing?! These earrings are great for any time of the day and with multiple outfit styles! I’m going to pick these up. 

At the store, I also picked up this Initial Necklace in the letter N in honor of my grandmother. I’ve been wanting a gold initial necklace for a while now so I was thrilled when I saw this!
