Reversible Tote & Gifts Under $35

As soon as I saw my very favorite faux leather reversible tote (that I listed in my Favorite Things post) in a brand new holiday color combo of red and white, I couldn’t wait to see if it was as gorgeous in my hands as it looked online. I’m happy to report, it is!  The red is such a pretty true red on the cool side and not orangey or pink at all.  And it’s under $50!
I’m not naming names, but I have a few people on my Christmas list who just might find this present under their tree!  I’m showing you how I carried it on both sides today and then sharing a few more accessory-related gift ideas (under $35 and most under $25!) to help you out with your holiday shopping!
The pop of red looks so good with your winter white sweaters. My pocket sweater sold out, but this one is nearly identical and 40% off.  It also comes in 8 colors.  I found another pocket sweater that looks gorgeous, and it has a nice v-neck.  It’s by Caslon, which I find typically runs big, so I’d size down in that one.

You can play up the red in the bag by adding a colorful scarf.  We’re lucky that we’re finally seeing some temps that legitimately justify a scarf! #finally! I think I actually need to order Jordan a jacket that fits her.

You’ve seen me living in my peep toe booties lately (with the turtleneck dress, ivory corduroy pants, and boho dress).  I love them so much that I bought them in both black and ‘wood’ (brown) suede. I wear between a size 6 & 6.5 in shoes and since I don’t wear socks with these, the 6 is my perfect fit. The v-cut at the front ankle creates the illusion of more leg length, which I appreciate!


The heel is on the higher side, but I still find them very comfortable.  You can tell when you have these on how well made they are!

I wanted to show you how the bag reverses to white, so I wore it with this pink sweater and grey plaid scarf.  I love this sweater for the bubble texture and wide turtleneck.  I listened to the reviewers on the sweater who said it runs big and I agree, I’m wearing XSP.

This bag might just be a “one for you, one for me” kind of gift, right?!

And shut the front door, it also comes in metallic!  The gold and pink is my fave! Such a great price for a quality bag!

Below are gifts under $35 (most under $25) that will be perfect for friends, teachers, coworkers, or anyone you want to give a little something to.  Sometimes I like to give gifts in pairs, like the stud earrings paired with the little jewelry box.
I found all these budget-friendly accessories at Nordstrom!  When you have many people on your Christmas list, but still want to spread the love and give a thoughtful gift, you can definitely find lots of inexpensive, quality items there.  You can shop Nordstrom’s gifts under $50 here.
