The holidays are in full swing here at Lars—I’ve been listening to Mannheim Steamroller’s Christmas on repeat!  Something’s got to get us through this cold! I’ve been doing better at preparing more in advance so the shopping and decorating aren’t as last minute as they usually are so I thought I’d prepare some holiday gift guides for you to help you find some awesome gifts for your loved ones. I’m kicking it off a gift guide inspired by Kate Middleton…because we all have a bit of duchess in us, non?!
When I think of Kate I think classic yet fresh, luxurious yet restrained, and of course globs of jewels! Here are some of my favorite items:

  1. Some lovely blush-tone earrings that would go everything–from Christmas to fancy to fun casual.
  2. A white winter hat to keep those ears warm and dressed up.
  3. A fancy planner because every royal needs to keep a calendar.
  4. A bejeweled golden clutch that goes with just about anything.
  5. A coordinating crystal necklace, which dresses up the simplest of forms.
  6. A cozy faux fur blanket for the crisp nights.
  7. Cozy metallic flats to get you around town comfortably—we don’t all have drivers.
  8. A colorful red faceted ring.
  9. An intricate bib necklace for a holiday party.
  10. An embellished jeweled dress (and reaches the knees, just like the Queen requested 😉
