Get Your Holidays On, Etsy Style

I’m a little behind on the holiday band wagon, since in my head its still somewhere near October. I’m not sure why (maybe it’s the weather) but this season just doesn’t feel very holiday-ish to me! But regardless, the holidays are here. And it’s time to deck the halls, Etsy style. Here are some fun items I’ve found to make it feel more like Christmas:

Holiday Gift Idea: Color Block & Printed Scarves

Kim Kardashian Scarf Lauren Conrad Scarf

My favorite cold weather accessory is definitely a fun, colorful scarf. They’re a great way to add a ‘pop’ of color or print to a neutral fall outfit.

Rihanna Scarf Rachel Bilson Scarf

Scarves make brilliant holiday gifts. There is one for every style and personality type. I’m loving Marc by Marc Jacobs scarves this season, like this panther scarf in blue:

Neutral Crossbody Handbags

I have had the same Michael by MK large tan satchel for 4 years now, and I’m itching for a new handbag. When it comes to everyday bags, I have a few requirements. It has to be a neutral color that goes with both blacks and browns, and it has to fit everything that I need to bring with me wherever (phone, wallet, camera, gum, chapstick). And it has to be hot! I mean, it’s practically part of every outfit I wear. I love beige, tan, or white bags with gold hardware. Right now, I’m finding myself leaning towards a crossbody-style handbag. At first, I wasn’t a huge fan of these. But in lugging around my massive satchel, I’m starting to realize the appeal: they seem to balance the weight of the bag across both sides of your body, which is a feature women around the country can appreciate (how often are you switching shoulders?). They’re also at a convenient hip height for grabbing something quickly, like your iPhone for a quick photo op. Here are a few that may be in the running for purchase:
