Valentine’s Gift Guide 2018


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Are you wrecking your brain thinking about what to get your significant other for the occasion? OR, do you want to get a yourself a little treat? I love buying myself presents…because honestly, some self-love is never a bad thing! Whatever the case, I’ve got a roundup of gifts that will get the love going this holiday!

Lingerie: If ever there were a holiday for something sexy, this is it! I love this set that comes in the prettiest shade of “petal” that will look amazing on any skin tone.


Coordinates Stacking ring: A simple gold ring with the coordinates of somewhere meaningful. One of my friends once gave me a location bracelet with the coordinates of our first job (where we met) and it always has a special place in my heart. This gift is both stylish and sentimental!


Body Wash: Ladies love a good beauty product and for me, this all starts with a great shower. This lovely scented (and pretty) body/hand wash from Jo Malone is a great gift to remind her to indulge in life’s little luxuries.


Fragrance: a pretty and floral scent to kick Spring into gear!


Phone Case: Let’s be honest, our phones are with us 24/7! And sometimes a new phone case can feel like a brand new outfit, or even a haircut. This tiny detail can make you feel fresh and special! Well this pick is one of my favorites, customizable and in the cutest colors. This is definitely one I’ll be getting myself if Mr. O doesn’t!

Shave Cream: Just like women, men can really enjoy an elevated grooming experience. This shave cream will have his shaving routine feeling extra luxurious!


Sneakers: How cute and holiday appropriate are these Comme des Garçons sneakers. They have more attitude and style than a regular pair of Converse, yet they aren’t as pricey as the covetable Common Projects. Also, I love that they’re unisex. Both Jason and I have a pair!


Sunglasses: A pair of classic sunglasses that will take an outfit to the next level. Whether added to jeans a t-shirt, or a polished suit, this pair will look good with everything!


Macaroons: Have you ever known a guy to turn down something sweet? And remember what I said about self-love? Get a box for yourself while you’re at it!


Cologne: Jason’s favorite cologne that I love to spritz on as well! It’s a win-win for both of us, and I guarantee your man will love it too!


January Blues





Heading back to work after a long vacation can be daunting to say the least. I spent a full two weeks at home in Florida, enjoying the sunshine, spending time with family and just plain ol’ relaxing. While my day-to-day pace had slowed down, I had time to focus on Brown Paper Doll and goals for 2018. The brief hiatus gave me time to reflect on the past year and what I hope to achieve in the future! I hope to expand my network, partner with brands I’m passionate about, meet more like-minded individuals and find more joy in the growth process. While I can’t wait to achieve those goals, it’s back to work in the meantime!

Many people don’t know that I work a full 9 to 5 job, and boy is it stressful juggling these responsibilities with my blog. Even though I do love my job, I’m falling into a bit of the blues having less time to focus on Brown Paper Doll and the goals I’m so eager to achieve. It’s all a balance and I’m just figuring it out as I go.


Speaking of blues, while I was home I repurposed the navy Tibi skirt that I wore for one of my holiday special occasion looks! I love taking a piece and with a little bit of creativity, making a brand new outfit! For this look – I kept it all Tibi, pairing it with a houndstooth print crop top with tie sleeves and my marigold mules. These shoes are literally my favorite, and I can’t wear them enough. The sunny shade of velvet makes me January blues just fade away!


P.S. How gorgeous is this Inn in Jacksonville! Jason and I almost rented it as accommodations for our wedding and every time I drive by it makes me smile.


Fairfax Tie Sleeve Gingham Top: Tibi. Plissé Pleated Midi Skirt: Tibi. Sunglasses: Gucci. Velvet Mules: Loeffler Randall. Bracelets: Dior.

Spice Up Your Life




I feel like I say it every week and then have to take it back…but Fall is officially here in Atlanta. This week was one of the first where it was consistently chilly and a sweater was absolutely necessary.


As you can imagine, the day goes from being chilly to warming up a quite a bit in the Atlanta sun. To combat the bi-polar weather, I’ve been wearing sweaters with skirts as a happy compromise. This year, my go-to sweater is a cream off-the shoulder number from Intermix. On this occasion, I decided to pair it with a metallic, blue pleated skirt and my Miu Miu oxfords. While they’re totally dramatic and induce thoughts of the Spice Girls, these denim studded oxfords are my new shoe when I want comfort. They might not be for everybody, but they’re for me!


If you’re interested in my platforms, then I’ve linked some other favorites below.
