Monday Must

Must Share

Since I'm trapped on the east coast until my sick puppy gets the okay from the vet to travel, I've been spending a lot of time with my little brother (aka my twin.) For some reason he refuses to admit that we look alike, but I think the evidence speaks for itself. After church on Sunday we volunteered at the food bank, sorting food and packaging blankets. It was such a rewarding experience. Don't forget to take a minute to give back this holiday season!

Must Bake

One of my favorite things is to do to balance out the chaos of life is to bake. My sister and I have been stock piling ideas over the past few weeks that we want to try over the holidays. At the top of my list is this gingerbread cheese cake and festive cookie puzzle. Yum!

Must Buy

This classic Kate Spade iPhone case and tasseled clutch have quickly made it to the top of my must buy list. Obsessed! 

Must Watch
Sandra Bullock (aka Gracie Lou Freebush) has always been one of my favorite comedic actresses and this new trailer for "The Heat" co-staring the always on point Melissa McCarthy looks ultra hilarious. 

Must Read

Taylor Swift is killing it in this month's issue of Harpers Bazzar. Inside, Taylor opened up about her obsession with dresses and how she tends to avoid pants. (I know the feeling, girl.) Here's an excerpt from the interview which you can read here"Whether it's a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy, or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a '50s housewife—which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason—I just really like dresses." Today, though, it's all about pants. Taylor hardly ever wears them, consenting to jeans in the winter only for survival reasons. That said, "I think doing something that's different, that's out of your comfort zone is important," she says of posing for Bazaar in les pantalons. "Personal growth, let's call it that." Haha. Love her! 

Must Revisit 

Nobody knows how to work a budget more than a fash lover without a trust fund, and with a slew of holiday parties on everyone's calender this month, it's important to think smart and get creative with your favorite little black dress. Be sure to revisit my post on how to style one LBD five ways here.

Must Recreate

Well, I've already got the jacket down. :) I love, love, love how the always stylish Ashley Tisdale rocked her Free People coat this past week and I can't wait to try her look out myself. What do you guys think of A. Tis's super chic spotted look? 

How was your weekend?
