Petite Secret Santa Reveal

Those fun H&M finds you see above are from my Secret Santa, Annie. Some of you may remember the Petite Secret Santa Exchange 2010 hosted by Jessy. She coordinated another this year using a neat program called Elfster. The site allows you to set up a private group in which members can create a wishlist, ask anonymous questions, and answer anonymous user questions. Through this program, I was assigned Elle. I was so excited! I have known Elle for over a year now, so buying gifts for her was easy and fun!

Annie's gifts arrived earlier than expected, November 25! It was a nice early Christmas treat! Here are a few ways I have styled the items:

CLOTHES: michael stars tank / free people bralette
JEWELRY: necklaces and ring from grandma's jewelry box
bracelets: banana republic and j. crew
ACCESSORIES: loft scarf

This was worn the same day I received the package. I was so excited to create an outfit around the cuff! My husband and I had a meetup with a college friend planned at Yardhouse that night.

CLOTHES: loft sweater dress / free people jacket / forever 21 leggings
JEWELRY: necklaces: j. crew and loft
ACCESSORIES: tory burch flats / prada purse

I wore this out Christmas shopping with my family. This xs belt is the perfect size for me...I can wear it on my hips or around my waist.

CLOTHES: j. crew tee / james perse jacket / banana republic jeans
ACCESSORIES: unknown brand belt / b. makowsky purse / frye boots

I paired the scarf with my newest J. Crew bargain tee ($6.99!) on Christmas Eve. My husband said several times that day that he liked the scarf! :)

Thank you so much to Annie for these thoughtful gifts! They are all getting so much use!! :)
