Happy Friday Eve, friends! I’m back today with another holiday dress. Last week, I shared this velvet bell sleeve dress (you can see the post here).

Happy Wednesday, friends! How is your holiday shopping going? I say this every year, but my dad and husband are always the hardest for me to buy for. Maybe it’s because they never ask for ANYTHING! This year, I am thankfully finished with my shopping (including the two hardest on my list!) but I wanted to share a gift guide for the guys for this week’s gift guide. Although men are typically difficult to buy for (at least in my experience) it seems like each year I find more and more gift possibilities. I think retailers have upped their game because they know how much women suffer when it comes to finding the perfect gift for all the men in their lives! Anyways, here are this year’s picks for the guys.

Wednesday Wishes Gift Guide edition is here featuring holiday gifts under $100! Since I typically only share women’s clothing and accessories in Wednesday Wishes, I decided to skip the Gifts for Her this year and focus on a gift guide that is more cost friendly. Although, this particular gift guide could actually be gifts for her under $100! With Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I feel like all I have been doing lately is making collages! As much as I love finding the products and putting these posts together, I am ready for a break…and for stores to re-stock! Without further ado, here is this year’s holiday gifts under $100!
