Gift Guide: Kids

This is the earliest the gift-giving holidays have ever been in my memory & it is a little. bit. crazy. I love giving gifts because it’s just another way I can find creative ways to express myself, so I’m always trying to find or think of really unique gifts my friends and family won’t expect. That being said, this time crunch is seriously making it hard to do that, but not impossible. In honor of all of you who refuse to resort to giving socks, scarves or iTunes cards… I will be posting a new gift-list and some fun DIYs to inspire you!

To kick off, here are my picks for cute and out-of-the-box gifts for the tiny tots in your life:

Tiny Treasures

When it comes to jewelry, I don’t usually go for subtle. If I wear it, its generally going to be a statement necklace, a bunch of rings or a stack of bracelets.

However, I’m discovering a newfound appreciation for the tiny charm necklace. What I think is so cool about these is that they may be microscopic, but thats part of their charm! You have to come up close to see what they’re really all about.

Urban Outfitters is the ruler of tiny charm jewelry. Check out my favorite picks from their current collection:

How to Rock Your Lazy Days

Everyone, even the most accomplished fashionistas, have those days where you just want to wear your sweats all day. Well stylebandits, I have great news: it is possible to have those comfortable (& comforting!) pieces without sacrificing your unique stylishness! Thanks to the kicked-up-a-notch sweatshirts and embellished sneakers many brands have been coming out with, you can have your lazy-girl style cake and eat it too.

Having one or two embellished sweatshirts in my closet has seriously made life easier – on those lazy days where you still have to be presentable I can just throw one on with my comfiest jeans and I’m ready to go. Picking shoes and tops that have small embellishments also mean no accessorizing necessary, which is always a plus if you’re feeling lazy or short on time.

What do you think of this look? How do you rock your lazy days with style?
