The holidays are most definitely one of my favorite times of year. I love everything – the food, the decorating, the time spent with close friends, family and loved ones, the holiday parties and events. I love it all. One of the only things I do not look forward to is the holiday shopping. Don’t get me wrong – I love shopping for others, but I have a bad habit of waiting until the very last minute to get all of my holiday shopping done. Guilty! Who else is guilty of this? Raise your hand!
One thing that is important and that I know very well, is not only shopping in style, but comfortable. This is my biggest tip when shopping. Always dress comfortably, especially when selecting the right pair of shoes. After all, you will be doing a lot of walking.
With the holidays quickly approaching and the last-minute holiday shopping, it is very important to be in the most comfortable shoes. Whenever I am on the go, you can bet I will be in my trusty flats. I always opt for a flat shoe that will keep me running errands and what-not comfortably throughout the entire day.
We all know that sparkles and velvet are a must during the holidays, which is why I can’t get enough of these burgundy beauties from Naturalizer. While I love my heels and boots, flats are definitely without a doubt, my go-to shoe for hustling and bustling during the holidays. The best part is that these flats are festive enough for all your holiday parties. These can take you from day to night, and you can style them casual or dress them up. It’s a win-win!

We are well into the holiday season, and by now, most of you have probably finished all of your holiday shopping. Family? Check. Friends? Check. The kiddos? Check. The furry babies? Check check. White elephant gifts or gift exchange gifts? Double check!
So now that you got all of your shopping done and out of the way, what about a little gift for yourself? It’s perfectly fine to treat yo self! Or maybe you want to send this post to your significant other or your secret elfster to remind them what you want.
And others… well who haven’t nearly started their holiday shopping, not to worry because that’s why I’ve compile a list of gifts for not only yourself but for everyone else on your list as well. Raise your hand if this is you? (slowly raises own hand).
Here are a few of my holidays favorites that are not perfect for any last minute gifts, but also for yourself. Don’t mind if I do! 😉
Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner?! I can’t! Next thing you know, it’ll be 2018. OMG!!! I feel like the year flew by so quick. But I also feel this way around this year every year. Anyone else?
I love the holidays only because everyone is always so merry and gay and full of love and happiness, and I love it all. I wish we could all be this way all year long and not just around the holidays – but something about the holidays and this time of year just makes you feel this way, and puts you in a jolly ol’ mood. Agree or disagree?
Here are 5 things I’m looking forward to this holiday…
Spending time with friends and family.
Playing games, like Catch Phrase and Cards Against Humanity. So much fun!
New Years is by far one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. I love dressing up and being so festive and surrounded by the most important people in my life.
I love watching Christmas movies.
And last but not least (my favorite favorite of all favorite things), I’m so ready for Tamales!

How many of you camped out late last night for Black Friday Sales? How many are out shopping right now? And how many of you are like me doing all the black Friday holiday shopping in the comfort of you home (or in bed)? I’m definitely avoiding any interaction with anyone today and doing all my shopping online. It’s easier, safe, less stressful, and you can stay in your pajamas all day, I mean. Does it get any better than that? NO!
I’ve listed all the Black Friday Holiday Sales that I’m currently browsing through as we speak. Happy Black Friday! Happy online shopping!
The time is FINALLY here! The moment we have all been waiting for. The holiday deals and steals. That’s right. It’s Cyber Week holiday Sales, and I’ve put together a list of all the sales that are happening now. From apparel to accessories to beauty to mens to home – I’ve listed it all. All you have to do is click the links below for each sale and it will direct you to the discounts that each store is offering. It’s a long one, so be sure to get comfy. Grab a chair, get some coffee, and shop on!
Happy Monday babes! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was filled with good company and good food. Follow me on Instagram in case you missed my weekend shenanigans (@melrodstyle).
Beginning the first day of the week with an super duper casual outfit, and the most coziest Hilfiger sweater that I wish I had the matching bottoms to lounge in.
Side note: let the holiday shopping countdown begin! Can you believe Thanksgiving is in a few days, and before we know it, it’ll be Christmas and then 2018!!! Aaahhhh! Am I the only one that hasn’t begin my holiday shopping? I hope I’m not the only one. Speaking of, I plan to share a few holiday gift ideas, so be sure to keep an eye out.
One of my favorite brands at the moment is Fame and Partners for obvious reasons (see polkadot jumpsuit above). I own a few pieces from the brand and I absolutely love each piece. I love the details and silhouettes. They definitely know what they’re doing when they design each piece.
This little polkadot cutie is one of my favorites. I received tons of feedback and questions about this jumpsuit. Most thought it was a dress. They do have a similar style in a form of a dress, which I’ll link below as well. It’s actually what I was suppose to wear for the wedding I attended a few weeks ago in Palm Springs. If you follow me on Instagram (@melrodstyle) and saw my stories, you know what I’m talking about. p.s. I’m linking everything below if you’re interested in purchasing this jumpsuit.
