December always seems to fly by in about five minutes, so I’m determined to get the bulk of my holiday shopping completed before the end of November. I’m on track with my goal so far, and I’ve purchased almost all of my main gifts for family and friends earlier this week. This weekend, my shopping has been all about stocking stuffers. In previous years, I’ve shopped for stocking stuffers on Christmas morning, but the last-minute scramble for emergency gifts isn’t happening this year.

I’ve found so many amazing stocking stuffers for everyone in my family, and I can’t wait to share them all with you. While I’ll be publishing a full list of my favorite stocking stuffers within the next few days, today I wanted to share the perfect Christmas stocking stuffer for the women in your life plus one of my favorite casual holiday outfit ideas. P.S. I’m sharing an exclusive discount code to help you save even more on your holiday shopping!

This Thanksgiving, I ditched my typical party dress in favor of this relaxed look featuring ripped skinny jeans, a cozy cashmere sweater, sky-high black heels, and the coolest retro round wayfarer sunglasses from Foster Grant. They’re currently under $25, and they’ve been earning compliments everywhere I go. The light tortoiseshell and trendy design instantly make you feel cooler, and they’re comfortable enough to wear all day long.

As you can see, my Foster Grant collection is growing rather quickly. They’re cute, comfortable, and the price honestly can’t be beat for this level of quality. With tons of styles under $25, I think that any of these sunglasses would be a fabulous Christmas stocking stuffer idea for the fashionistas in your life. They’d also be a fabulous add-on gift if you’re purchasing clothing or accessories for a loved one. While all of their designs are already affordable, you can save even more when you use the promo code ASHLEY to get 15% of your entire purchase through 12/31/16 (one time use only)!

I’m going to be purchasing a bunch of new pairs for stocking stuffers for the 10+ ladies on my Christmas shopping list at Foster Grant’s grand opening at The Florida Mall on Saturday, December 3rd from 12:30-2:30 pm. If you live in the Orlando area, I’d love to see you at the event! In addition to tons of cute sunnies, Kat Graham from The Vampire Diaries will be there. I have a feeling that the Foster Grant store is gonna be one of my go-to spots for cute accessories in 2017.

I love the combination of black and burgundy, and the gold and tortoiseshell accessories add just the right amount of holiday bling. I wore this outfit to my families’ Thanksgiving parties, and it was pretty enough for pictures, cool enough for cooking, and comfy enough to watch football on the couch.

This outfit is quite different from my normal fit-and-flare dresses, but I have to say that I felt just as ladylike thanks to a few well-placed accessories. The patent leather pointy-toe pumps added class to my distressed skinny jeans, and my sparkly earrings and gold jewelry added just the right amount of sparkle and feminine charm. And my favorite of the entire outfit was definitely my Foster Grant PF 41 Sunglasses (use the promo code ASHLEY to get 15% of your entire purchase through 12/31/16 – one time use only). The pale tortoiseshell print is right up my alley, and I love that the round wayfarer shape is the perfect mid-point between classic and trendy.

    I’ve also been hard core shopping after Thanksgiving…and I must stop soon! Gah! But, no stocking stuffer shopping yet. Might need to add these glasses to my list! How chic – and the price? Wowzers. I had to read that twice to make sure I saw it correctly!

  20. November 29, 2016 / 5:43 am

    I am totally digging all of the sunglasses and the color of your top! I should probably start christmas shopping too, but I’m a last-minute shopper.

  21. November 29, 2016 / 7:00 am

    This looks like the perfect casual outfit. I adore the purple cozy knit jumper with the sophisticated patent pumps, so gorgeous xx
