Happy Thanksgiving Eve my friends! I am excited to get lots of time with my family and Will’s over the next few days. But before the festivities begin, I am sharing with you all 12 ruffled tops for the holidays and The Little Market’s new reusable tote that I previewed in my Cheap Date ideas post. As you may recall, I did a little modeling with the totes around DC for photographer-extraordinaire Joffoto. I promised more photos and details, so here they are!
The Little Market’s Reusable Tote
In case you don’t know, The Little Market is a company that gives its customers the ability to purchase handmade fair trade products crafted by artisans around the world. If you are looking for a particularly meaningful or thoughtful gift this holiday season, definitely check them out. They have all kinds of unique home decor and accessories, like beautiful woven baskets, personalized candles, baby blankets and elephant-shaped mugs (swoon!!). There is something about a handmade gift that you know is supporting people around the world that just feels extra special.
Side note: This post is not sponsored by The Little Market. I was just fortunate to do some modeling with their totes through my connection to Jof. As always, my opinions are authentic, and this is just a company I truly love.
Now to the bag I wore for our photo shoot. It is their newest locals bag for Washington, D.C. These reusable bags are so functional, cute and sturdy. The Little Market has a ton of totes for various cities around the world and totes with various sayings, like happy holidays, packed with love and bonjour!
I styled the tote with Gibson’s Ruffled Hem Top from Nordstrom, my favorite skinny jeans and super comfortable brown booties. Ruffled tops are one of my favorite trends this season. And since there are several on my wish list (and maybe sitting in a couple of online shopping carts!), I am sharing the ones at the very top of my list.
Ruffled Tops for the Holidays
The plaid ruffled tops might be my favorite because they feel festive and I like the mix of a masculine print with feminine ruffles. I also like styling flowy, ruffled tops with skinny jeans. For a holiday party, try pairing a ruffled top with a structured skirt. Now do you have any ruffled tops to wear this holidays season? Is there a way you prefer to style them?
I would also love to know your thoughts on The Little Market and giving a gift that supports local artisans. Do you shop anywhere that is similar? Or have a unique, handmade gift you love to give? Tell me all about it in the comments!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and have time to be with the people you are most thankful for.
