Holiday Styling: Shopping!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope you all are having a beautiful day celebrating with friends & loved ones. Today I want to share with you a fabulous holiday collaboration that I am doing with Jaleh . If you have followed Scuttle for little while now you will have seen/read me raving about this amazing clothing line. (check out that former post here ) The quality of the clothes are impeccable & all the clothes are made in the USA - plus the designer, Jordanah, is an absolute doll!

I am teaming up with the Jaleh line to share some holiday styling inspiration! Over the next few posts I will share with you some outfit ideas for upcoming holiday events that you will encounter. Plus! There will be a fabulous giveaway too :)

              Holiday Styling: SHOPPING!
Holiday shopping should be considered its own sporting event because it can be an intense & strenuous experience. It includes haggling, reaching, climbing, countless steps and lots of standing in line, so you need to make sure you are adequately dressed!

Here are some holiday shopping pointers:

1 - Comfortable Bottoms: I went with the Legging Warmers because they are the most comfortable leggings I have ever tried!

2 - Dress in Two Layers: All the stores are heated & you will be carrying lots of things so don't make the mistake of wearing hot layers. I went with the Liz Four-Way Tank & then a light over piece, the Isla Kimono, that you can take of & fold into your purse if you get hot.

3 - Flat Comfy Shoes: This is not the time to rock the stilettos, I went with a  flat riding boot.

4 - Cross Body Purse: Make sure you use a bag with a long strap so you aren;t stuck lugging around a purse on your shoulder or wrist for the whole day - it will start hurting & hinder the amount of stuff you can carry.

Now that you have been inspired by all of the beautiful Jaleh clothing, how about an amazing giveaway from the company! $75 gift card from Jaleh up for grabs. Easy Entry here:

Sometimes you need a little pop of fun & these tights are just that. A typical work outfit taken up a notch into the fun zone with an unexpected tight. Don't be afraid to try a fun tight or scarf to lighten up an otherwise normal work uniform.

Off To Work!

A common question that people often ask fashion bloggers is if the outfits they post are actually the outfits they wore that day or if it is all staged. Well let me tell you, these photos were taken on my way out the door to work yesterday, I was in such a hurry I didn't even have time to put my coffee down. So yes... I actually wore this all day yesterday.

Happy Thursday!

Gray Line Nashville Tour

Hello! I a so excited to share with you about my adventure I got to go on this past weekend. I have lived in Nashville  for almost 5 months now but there is still so much that I haven't seen yet so when I was offered the chance to go on a tour of my fabulous city I jumped on it! 

Thanks to the fabulous people at Gray Line Tours, I got to travel all over the city & learn so much about Nashville. I joined the fabulous ladies from  Blog Nashville for the Unpublished Nashville Walking Tour and the Hop-On & Off Trolley Tour. We started on Broadway and made our way to m The Ryman Auditorium which is one of the most extraordinary venues (hello, home of the Grand Ole Opry!). After that we we took the Trolley all over town & saw all of the great sights like the Capital, Bicentennial Park, Music Row & more! It was such a great trip.

If you live in Nashville or are planning on visiting soon, be sure to take a tour with Gray Line and check out the blogs below for insider advice on fashion, food and fun! I also want to say a HUGE thanks to Zipporah, a Nashville photograpger who took all of these fabulous photos. Make sure you check out her work here.

Here are some photos from my adventure over the city!

Here are the beautiful other bloggers who I was on the adventure with: 

If your looking for a Nashville Tour I 100% recommend the Gray Line Hop on & off trolley tour along with their other tours like the Unpublished Nashville Walking TourConnect with the Gray Line Tour group on Facebook Twitter.
